ARMOUR is a limited series in development from Mearbeck   Pictures Ltd., produced by DeCantillon Films. Created by director Tim Reynard    (“Upon the Edge”) and writer Leigh Douglas; from  executive producer Rachel Ramsay ("Clarkson's Farm").


Harry Slade, a young footballer at a major English team, is a down-to-earth local hero with the promise of a glittering Premier League career.

The only difference between Harry and his teammates is his secret: he is attracted to men. 


After an impulsive, intimate encounter threatens to derail Harry's life, he forces himself to repress his urges and project the facade of being a conventional, straight footballer. With no openly queer men in the major leagues, and a constant worry of homophobia from pockets of football culture, the potential of happiness in his personal life feels futile. But when a progressive childhood friend comes back into his life, a ray of hope emerges in the form of an historic opportunity.


Times are changing... when sexuality isn't a choice, why must Harry choose between his career and who he really is?


Inspired by true events, ARMOUR is an exploratory tale of how the courage of one person, and support of those around him, could one day make a real world difference.
