The series is an adaptation of the critically acclaimed Norwegian drama Valkyrien, and follows a surgeon (Strong) who, determined to save his dying wife, sets up an illegal clinic in the abandoned tunnels underneath a London Underground station. Temple marks the first time Strong has ever stepped behind the camera to executive produce and premieres in the U.S. in early 2020.

He is currently in production for Disney's Cruella, directed by Craig Gillespie and starring Emma Stone.

Moviegoers have seen Strong in notable collaborations over the years with directors Guy Ritchie on Sherlock Holmes, RocknRolla and Revolver; Ridley Scott on Robin Hood and Body of Lies, for which he received a London Film Critics Circle Award nomination; and Matthew Vaughn, on Kingsman: The Secret Service, Kick-Ass and Stardust.
