BBC and PBS have unveiled the first trailer for a new war drama, World on Fire.

Starring Jonah Hauer-King and Julia Brown, the series looks at World War II through the eyes of ordinary people from all sides of the conflict: Britain, Poland, France, Germany and the U.S.

The seven-part series will follow the first year of the war, starting with the German invasion of Poland in September 1939 and ending with the Battle of Britain.

In addition to Hauer-King and Brown, the cast includes Helen Hunt, Sean Bean, Zofia Wichłacz, Lesley Manville, Brian J. Smith, Parker Sawyers, Tomasz Kot, Bruno Alexander, Johannes Zeiler, Eugénie Derouand, and Arthur Darvill.

Peter Bowker serves as executive producer alongside Damien Timmer and Helen Ziegler for Mammoth Screen, Marcus Wilson, Lucy Richer for BBC and Rebecca Eaton for Masterpiece. It airs on BBC One this fall.
