BBC Two has released the trailer for their one-off drama Marvellous, which is set to premiere on Thursday September 25th at 9pm.
Marvellous tells the story of Baldwin, a man with learning difficulties from the town of Newcastle-under-Lyme. He has been a great many things in his life including a circus clown, a lay preacher and kit man at Stoke City, where he once famously led the City attack against Aston Villa in a testimonial match. Above all he is a man who defies definition in a world in which we seem intent on labelling each other.
The 90 minute drama was penned by BAFTA winning scribe Peter Bowker, directed by Entourage helmer Julian Farino and produced by Tiger Aspect Productions & Fifty Fathoms. Wayward Pines and Harry Potter alum Toby Jones leads a cast which also includes Gemma Jones (Harry Potter) and Tony Curran (Defiance). The executive producers are Peter Bowker, Patrick Spence and Lucy Richer.
