CURRENT SEASON:

DESCRIPTION:
(from Showtime's press release, July 2017) Academy Award nominee Jennifer Jason Leigh (The Hateful Eight) and Hugo Weaving (The Matrix trilogy) have joined the cast of PATRICK MELROSE, a new SHOWTIME and Sky Atlantic limited series starring and executive produced by Oscar nominee and Emmy(R) winner Benedict Cumberbatch (The Imitation Game, Sherlock). Leigh and Weaving will star as the parents of "Patrick Melrose." Anna Madeley, who also joins the cast, will play Melrose's wife. BAFTA Award nominee David Nicholls (Far From the Madding Crowd, One Day) is writing all five episodes of the television adaptation, which will be directed by celebrated film director Edward Berger (Deutchland 83, Jack). PATRICK MELROSE will begin shooting in London and the South of France in August. Based on the acclaimed Patrick Melrose series of semi-autobiographical novels written by Edward St. Aubyn, PATRICK MELROSE hilariously skewers the upper class as it tracks the protagonist's harrowing odyssey from a deeply traumatic childhood through adult substance abuse and, ultimately, toward recovery. With each episode devoted to one of the five novels, the series will encompass the saga of Patrick Melrose's life, from his horribly abusive youth at the hands of his father (Weaving) and the mother who tacitly condones the behavior (Leigh), to the outrageous playboy he becomes and the struggles he endures to defy the damage of his own past. The limited series will be a true television saga, both gripping and humorous, from Nicholls' adaptation, sweeping through the South of France in the 1960s, New York in the 1980s and Britain in the early 2000's.
