Synopsis:
There have been three attempts to kill Lew Burnett (Colin Blakely). After the third attempt Burnett decides to stay 'dead' - so that he can stay alive. Burnett, owner of an international construction company, begins scouring his past to find out who hated, loved or envied him enough to want him out of the way for good; he is not running from his enemies but trying to draw them out. Undercover and on borrowed time, he has been given a second chance at life. In this state of transition - symbolised by the Hanged Man of the Tarot - he can no longer fall back on his money or influence, just the wits and hands with which he built up his own small empire.
In the process, he is forced to confront some painful truths. In an exceptional performance, Colin Blakely stars as Lew Burnett alongside Michael Williams as Alan Crowe and Gary Watson as hired assassin John Quentin. This powerful eight-part thriller series also features guest appearances from Jane Seymour, Gareth Hunt, James Grout and Frederick Jaeger, and is scripted by Edmund Ward, whose previous credits include 'The Power Game' and 'The Main Chance'. Ward found inspiration for the series in his own experiences in the often morally dubious world of international construction; 'The Hanged Man' is both a story of self-discovery, and a journey into dark places where money ultimately determines who lives and who dies.
