Season 1

Mad Dogs is a British black comedy and psychological thriller television series created by Cris Cole and produced by Left Bank Pictures and Palma Pictures which follows four long-time, middle-aged friends getting together in a villa in Majorca to celebrate the early retirement of Alvo, a fifth friend.

However, the group find themselves caught up in the world of crime and police corruption after Alvo is murdered.

Max Beesley, Philip Glenister, John Simm and Marc Warren are out of their depths in this surreal psychological thriller that will keep you on your toes.

Woody (Beesley), Quinn (Glenister), Baxter (Simm) and Rick (Warren) have been friends since sixth form. The fifth member of their gang is Alvo (Ben Chaplin), a risk-taking opportunist who, having made his fortune in property, leads a luxurious lifestyle in Majorca.

Now in their 40s, they've all taken different paths in life with varying degrees of success. When Alvo flies them to his extravagant villa to celebrate his early retirement, they enjoy a trip down memory lane.

However, all does not go to plan and they find themselves entangled in a web of deception and murder involving beautiful police women, large yachts, Speedos and a rather short assassin in a Tony Blair mask...

Mad Dogs is a darkly comic twisted tale of friendship put to the ultimate test as an inconceivable chain of events unfolds. Four ordinary blokes faced with a set of extraordinary circumstances and not handling it!

Written by Cris Cole, this distinctly black comedy is produced by the BAFTA award-winning Left Bank Pictures.
