The case of the former spy killed in London in 2006 arrives on TV, the Italian trailer of Litvinenko – Investigation into the death of a dissident, a miniseries in four episodes on the ordeal for truth and justice of Marina Litvinenko, widow of the Russian dissident.

The strength and tenacity of a woman, Marina Litvinenko, who has made herself the banner of hope and truth, in a miniseries from 25 January exclusively on Sky and streaming only on NOW and whose Italian trailer is released today: Litvinenko – Investigation into the death of a dissident is a thriller with a very strong emotional impact that tells the tragic end of the former Russian dissident from the point of view of Alexander Litvinenko’s widow, as well as the ten-year ordeal that the woman had to face to obtain justice.

David Tennant stars as a former Russian intelligence agent poisoned with radioactive polonium tea, while Russian-American actress Margarita Levieva plays his wife, Marina Litvinenko.

In 4 episodes that will air in prime time on January 25 and then on February 1 on Sky Atlantic (and which will obviously also be available for streaming on NOW and on demand), the series tells the true story of the former security services officer federal and KGB officers whose death from polonium-210 poisoning in November 2006 triggered one of the most complex and dangerous investigations in the history of British and international policing. The miniseries was assisted as consultants by former agents who handled the case, Clive Timmons and Brent Hyatt, the lawyer Ben Emerson and the family of Litvinenko.

A true hymn to justice and dignity, Litvinenko – Investigation into the death of a dissident tells of a regime even ready to attack the West in the middle of London in order to silence a dissident. At the same time, the series is also the dramatic story of a family broken by pain that fought for the truth for ten years.

When the police come to take his testimony, Litvinenko points the finger directly at the Russian president, Vladimir Putin.
