The English Game will be a six part series set in the 1800s and will describe how the world’s most popular sport of football crossed class lines and became a worldwide phenomenon despite its humble beginnings on the pitch at London’s Limes Field!

Belgravia 2020

‘BELGRAVIA’ EPIC SERIES
LAUNCHES MARCH & APRIL
The series will hit ITV next month!

We did not really expect that the first major period set drama of 2020 will arrive to us only in March, but the broadcasters have been very mean to us in the first two months of the year and thus BELGRAVIA will be the first of the bigger costume series to launch the new decade when it starts airing in March on British ITV and then from April 12th over at Epix in USA. Produced by Carnival Film it will air in just six hourlong episodes with Jamestown’s John Alexander directing the whole saga based on Julian Fellowes‘ 2016 book of the same name set in the 19th century when the upper echelons of society began to rub shoulders the emerging industrial nouveau riche.

Belgravia will move to Epix on April 12th!

The story set in the London high class of 1840s, actually begins on the eve of the Battle of Waterloo in 1815, when the Duchess of Richmond throws a party in Brussels for the Duke of Wellington. Among the guests are James (Philip Glenister) and Anne Trenchard (Tamsin Greg), who are living on the profits of newfound trading success. Their young daughter Sophia (Emily Reid) has caught the eye of Edmund

The series is a six episode adaptation of Julian Fellowes’ novel  Belgravia

The Gilded Age Series

 
HARRY RICHARDSON & THOMAS COCQUEREL JOIN THE CAST

While you can expect Julian Fellowes‘ new drama Belgravia this spring, he is already preparing another costume series but set in America. I’ve already announced the cast for THE GILDED AGE, a 19th-century series he is producing for HBO, but now they’re joined by Poldark’s Harry

Harry Richardson will be a rich son in the series

Richardson and In Like Flynn’s Thomas Cocquerel alongside Jack Gilpin. They join Christine Baranski, Cynthia Nixon, Amanda Peet, Morgan Spector, Taissa Farmiga, Blake Ritson and Simon Jones who are already in the cast.

The Gilded Age
begins in 1882 – introducing young Marian Brook, the orphaned daughter of a Southern general, who moves into the home of her rigidly conventional aunts in New York City. Marian gets caught up in the dazzling lives of her stupendously rich neighbors, led by a ruthless railroad tycoon and his ambitious wife struggling for acceptance by the Astor and Vanderbilt set. Will Marian follow the

established rules of society, or forge her own path in this exciting new world that is on the brink of transformation into the modern age?

Harry Richardson will play Larry Russell. Appealing and good-natured with an easy charm, Larry is a recent Harvard University graduate eager to make his way in the world. Thomas Cocquerel will be Tom Raikes, a sensible young lawyer who has been a solitary and career-driven practical man but is smitten when he meets Marian, his late client’s orphaned daughter. Jack Gilpin will portray Church, the Russell family’s butler. He is American, from a dismal background, but evades his past by excelling at his job. He has no time for nonsense in the workplace due to his attention and care for his job.
Still no releasing date.  We’ve been waiting for a least two years for this.
