There are no words

BBC dramas tend to go one of two ways: they're either really good like Sherlock or awful like The Gamechangers appears to be. This forthcoming feature starring Daniel Radcliffe promises to plot the rise of Grand Theft Auto developer Rockstar Games, with Harry Potter himself filling the role of London-born chief Sam Houser. Bill Paxton will also star as infamous lawyer Jack Thompson.

And judging by the trailer embedded below, it's going to be terrible. Not only does Radcliffe mutter some nonsense about creating the "first truly adaptable hero", but the trailer seems to allude to some kind of patriotic battle between the US and the UK, as Paxton babbles on about the Brits corrupting American children. Or something.

On one hand, it's about time a story like this got turned into a TV show – after all, Houser is one of the more influential people in Britain at the moment. On the other hand, we can understand why Rockstar Games tried to block this from being released, as it looks like it's going to be a fictional story loosely based upon real world events. Either way, it'll be broadcast on BBC Two at 21:00PM on 15th September.
