TV - Pennyworth


With an accent that sounds like it's from the Michael Caine school of acting, watch Jack Bannon as a young Alfred in the trailer for the new TV series from DC...

From Warner Horizon Scripted Television, DC origin story Pennyworth is a ten-episode, one-hour drama series based on DC characters created by Bob Kane with Bill Finger. It follows Bruce Wayne’s legendary butler, Alfred Pennyworth (Jack Bannon), a former British SAS soldier who forms a security company and goes to work with Thomas Wayne (Ben Aldridge), Bruce’s billionaire father, in 1960’s London.

Pennyworth stars Jack Bannon, Ben Aldridge, Paloma Faith, Hainsley Lloyd Bennett, Ryan Fletcher, Jason Flemyng, Polly Walker and Emma Corrin. Writer Bruno Heller (Gotham, The Mentalist, Rome) and director Danny Cannon (Gotham, CSI series) also serve as executive producers. The series premieres on Epix on 28th July in the US but no word yet when (if) it's coming to any UK channels.
