HBO’s eagerly anticipated drama series Westworld will receive its UK premiere on Sky Atlantic on Tuesday October 4th at 9pm, it has been announced.
Westworld is set in an amusement park and is described as a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin. The all star cast includes Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Miranda Otto, Rodrigo Santoro, Shannon Woodward, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Angela Sarafyan and Simon Quarterman.
HBO’s adaptation of Westworld was penned by Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan, who also directed the pilot. It is being produced by Bad Robot Productions, Jerry Weintraub Productions and Kilter Films in association with Warner Bros. Television; with Lisa Joy, Jonathan Nolan, JJ Abrams, Jerry Weintraub and Bryan Burk serving as executive producers. The series has had its fair share of problems. Production was shut down in early January to allow Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy enough time to finish penning the final four scripts from the initial ten episode order.
