GOD KNOWS WHO DID IT... ARTHUR HUGHES AND ANTHONY BOYLE ANNOUNCE 1 MAY RELEASE DATE FOR DISNEY+ ORIGINAL TUDOR MURDER-MYSTERY SERIES "SHARDLAKE"

Based on the best-selling books by C.J. Sansom. Starring Arthur Hughes, Anthony Boyle and Sean Bean.

All Episodes Streaming 1 May Exclusively on Disney+

London, U.K. (April 10, 2024) - Today, Arthur Hughes and Anthony Boyle announced the release date for upcoming Disney+ Original series, "Shardlake". The thrilling Tudor murder-mystery series based on the internationally popular novels by C.J. Sansom launches on 1 May on Disney+ with all episodes available.

Drenched in mystery, suspense and deception, this four-part drama, based on the first novel in Sansom's series, is an eerie whodunnit adventure, set in 16th century England during the dissolution of the monasteries. Shardlake's sheltered life as a lawyer is turned upside down when Cromwell instructs him to investigate the murder of one of his commissioners at a monastery in the remote town of Scarnsea. The commissioner was gathering evidence to close the monastery and it is now imperative for Cromwell's own political survival that Shardlake both solves the murder and closes the monastery. He leaves Shardlake in no doubt that failure is not an option. Cromwell insists that he is accompanied by Jack Barak to Scarnsea, where the duo are met with hostility, suspicion and paranoia by the monks who fear for their future and will seemingly stop at nothing to preserve their order.

Arthur Hughes ("Then Barbara Met Alan'') plays Matthew Shardlake, a lawyer with an acute sense of justice and one of the few honest men in a world beset with scheming and plots. Shardlake works for Thomas Cromwell, played by Sean Bean ("Time") the dangerous and all-powerful right-hand man to Henry VIII. Anthony Boyle ("Masters of the Air") plays the cocky Jack Barak, who leaves Shardlake unsure of whether he is an assistant, or Cromwell's spy.

The series also stars Babou Ceesay as Abbot Fabian, Paul Kaye as Brother Jerome, Ruby Ashbourne Serkis as Alice Fewterer, Peter Firth as Norfolk, Matthew Steer as Goodhap, Brian Vernel as Brother Mortimus, Irfan Shamji as Brother Guy, David Pearse as Brother Edwig, Miles Barrow as Brother Gabriel, Mike Noble as Bugge and Kimberley Nixon as Joan.

"Shardlake" is written by Stephen Butchard ("The Good Mothers"). The series is executive produced by George Ormond and Mark Pybus for The Forge (a Banijay UK company) and Stevie Lee for Runaway Fridge. The series was commissioned by Lee Mason for Disney+, with Jonny Richards serving as executive producer for Disney+. Justin Chadwick ("The Other Boleyn Girl") has directed the series with John Griffin as producer.

Disney+ is available from £4.99 per month - with no hidden costs and the ability to cancel anytime. There's something for everyone to watch, adding new TV series, blockbuster movies and exclusive Originals throughout the year under its six brands: Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic, and Star.
