FIVE BY FIVE – BBC Three’s new series of short films from new writers 

Idris Elba stars in BBC Three’s ‘Five by five’, a series of short films from new writers, featuring new and established on-screen talent working side by side. Set in London, the five standalone films feature chance encounters between characters which question identity and change perceptions.  Five writers. Five characters. One story. 

‘Five by five’ is produced by Dean Byfield, executive produced by Idris Elba for Green Door Pictures, and Richard Stokes and Hilary Salmon for BBC Studios. The 5×5-min films are written by Cat Jones (Flea, Harlots), and new writers Lee Coan, Namsi Khan, Selina Lim and Nathaniel Price. They are directed by Screen International Star of Tomorrow Kate Herron (Fan Girl). 

‘Five by five’ is available on BBC Three from Monday 27 March as part of The Idris Takeover, a unique and ground-breaking season of content created and curated by Idris Elba.
