TNT’s short-lived young Shakespeare drama series Will will receive its UK premiere on Virgin Media’s TV On-Demand service on Thursday December 28th, when the first four episodes will be available for Virgin TV Full House customers. New episodes will continue to be made available every Thursday, through to the series finale on February 8th,
Will tells the story of a young William Shakespeare’s arrival onto the punk rock theater scene that was 16th century London – the seductive, violent world where his raw talent faced rioting audiences, religious fanatics and raucous side-shows. It’s the hot, contemporary, dangerous version of Shakespeare’s life, played to a modern soundtrack, exposing all his recklessness, lustful temptations and brilliance.
The drama series, which was cancelled after a single season, hails from Craig Pearce and stars Laurie Davidson, Olivia DeJonge (Hiding), Colm Meaney (Hell on Wheels), Mattias Inwood (The Shanara Chronicles), Jamie Campbell Bower (The Twilight Saga) and Ewen Bremner (Snowpiercer). TNT Originals is producing, with Pearce, Shekhar Kapur, Alison Owen, Debra Hayward, Vince Gerardis, Howard Braunstein and Louise Rosager serving as executive producers.
