Here’s everything you need to know about the Lazarus Project.
What is the Lazarus Project about?
The Lazarus Project is a time warp action thriller about a shadowy cabal turning back time to try and manipulate events.
George (Essiedu), their newest recruit, works with the Lazarus Project to try to save the world – but when someone close to him gets injured and the Project refuses to let him turn back time to save them to save himself, he must decide whether he wants to take his own destiny into his own hands.
Who is starring in The Lazarus Project?
Paapa Essiedu plays George, the Lazarus Project’s newest recruit. Essiedu is probably best known for his role in Michaela Coel’s I May Destroy You, but he also appeared in (and was the best part of) Mike Bartlett’s underappreciated journalism drama Press.
Anjli Mohindra plays Archie, the person who recruits George into the Lazarus Project. Mohindra has recently starred in the crime dramas Vigil and Bodyguard and had a supporting role in the Channel 4 series Cucumber a few years ago, but she is probably best known as Rani from The Sarah Jane Adventures.
Tom Burke plays Rebrov, the play’s villain. Burke has appeared in television series such as The Crown and films such as The Souvenir, but he is probably best known for his role in the JK Rowling detective series Strike, in which he appears opposite Holliday Grainger.
They are joined by Rudi Dharmalingam (The Split), Caroline Quentin (Bridgerton) and Charly Clive (Pure).

The series was written and created by Joe Barton, writer/creator of the BBC series Giri/Haji. His next project is the Netflix series Half-Bad.
Marco Kreuzpaintner, Akaash Meeda and Laura Scrivano have directed episodes of The Lazarus Project.
