JASON FLEMYNG JOINS "PENNYWORTH" FOR EPIX AND WARNER HORIZON SCRIPTED TELEVISION, BASED ON THE CHARACTERS FROM DC

Drama from Executive Producers Bruno Heller and Danny Cannon Currently in Production at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden, in the UK

· Jason Flemyng (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) has joined the cast in the series regular role of villain "Lord Harwood" in the upcoming EPIX drama series PENNYWORTH. PENNYWORTH is from Warner Horizon Scripted Television and based on the characters from DC.

· The 10-episode, one-hour drama series is based on DC characters created by Bob Kane with Bill Finger.
