Limited series Patrick Melrose will receive its UK premiere on Sky Atlantic on Sunday May 13th at 2am, simulcast with Showtime’s east-coast feed. The premiere will also be repeated later that same day in the show’s regular 9pm time-slot.
Patrick Melrose follows the eponymous character who struggles to overcome the damage inflicted by a horribly abusive father and the mother who tacitly condoned his behavior. The limited series, which is a co-production with Showtime, is based on the acclaimed Patrick Melrose series of semi-autobiographical novels written by Edward St. Aubyn.
The cast is led by Benedict Cumberbatch (The Imitation Game, Sherlock) and also includes Jason Leigh (The Hateful Eight), Hugo Weaving (The Matrix trilogy), Anna Madeley (The Crown), Blythe Danner (Meet the Fockers), Allison Williams (Get Out), Pip Torrens (The Crown), Jessica Raine (Call the Midwife), Prasanna Puwanarajah (Doctor Foster), Holliday Grainger (The Borgias, Bonnie & Clyde), Indira Varma (Game of Thrones) and Celia Imrie (Bridget Jones’s Baby).
