After announcing Sky Arts is to become a free-to-air channel from September, Sky have confirmed further details about the forthcoming documentary, ‘Danny Dyer on Pinter’.
With his prolific media presence and tough cockneygeezer persona, it’s easy to forget that Eastender actor Danny Dyer was once the protégé of Nobel Prize-winning playwright Harold Pinter. Taken under his wing following roles in films like 1997’s Human Traffic, Pinter cast Dyer in a number of his plays, including No Man’s Land and The Homecoming. Now, ten years after Pinter’s death, Danny takes a look back at his mentor’s work and the profound influence he had on his life.
The documentary’s exact air date is tbc.
