Anthony Horowitz’s teenage spy Alex Rider has been brought to life in a gripping, eight-part series from Amazon Prime Video.
The coming-of-age thriller is based on Point Blanc, the second novel in the Alex Rider franchise, which has become a global phenomenon, selling more than 20 million copies worldwide.
Otto Farrant stars as Alex Rider, a London teenager who has unknowingly been trained since childhood for the dangerous world of espionage.
Pressured to help investigate his uncle’s death, and how it connects to the assassination of two high-profile billionaires, Alex reluctantly assumes a new identity and goes undercover in a remote boarding school called Point Blanc.
Isolated far above the snowline in the French Alps, Point Blanc claims to set the troubled teenage children of the ultra-rich back on to the right track.
As Alex digs deeper, he discovers the students are in fact the subjects of a disturbing plan, which Alex will have to risk his life to stop.
The cast also features Game of Thrones actor Stephen Dillane, Line of Duty’s Vicky McClure and Broadchurch star Andrew Buchan.
