Robbie Coltrane (a.k.a. Hagrid from the "Harry Potter" films) plays a well-known British comedian who is accused of having a long secret history of being a sexual predator in the new trailer for Hulu's British drama "National Treasure."
Seemingly drawing inspiration from the recent Bill Cosby scandal, this four-part series, which already aired in the U.K. back in September, also stars two-time Oscar nominee Julie Walters (Billy Elliot) as Coltrane's long-suffering wife and Andrea Riseborough (Nocturnal Animals, Birdman) as Coltrane's emotionally troubled daughter, who starts to have serious doubts concerning her father's innocence.
Created and written by BAFTA-winning writer Jack Thorne (This Is England '88, This Is England '90) and directed by British TV helmer Marc Munden (TV's Utopia), "National Treasure" will be making its US debut on Hulu.com beginning Wednesday, March 1st.
Paul Finchley is a bona fide "national treasure", one half of a popular, long-running comedy double act. However, the famous comedian's world is thrown into chaos when he is accused of historic sexual abuse.
