Peaky Blinders (2013-2022) is a BBC Two/Weinstein Company joint created by British filmmaker, Steven Knight. The series dramatizes the shenanigans of the historically documented post-WW I urban gang, of the same name, from Birmingham, England. Cillian Murphy stars as Thomas Shelby, the head of the Shelby family, who struggles with the gangster lifestyle more than most. The show derives its tension from a family moving through a classist society that's struggling with its identity after the first World War. Yet it is utterly modern, with its glossy production, direction and music. We've never seen a show more in love with itself. And it's perfect. (Netflix has exclusive US rights.)
