MotherFatherSon — Official Trailer


added: Wed, Jan 30th '19

Check out the official trailer for "MotherFatherSon," a new British series that stars Richard Gere as an American media mogul operating out of London.

Created and written by British novelist/writer Tom Rob Smith (Child 44), who recently earned an Emmy as one of the writers on FX's "The Assassination of Gianni Versace," and who also previously wrote and created the critically acclaimed British miniseries "London Spy," the upcoming eight-episode drama centers on a wealthy and powerful family as they spiral down a path of self-destruction.

Helen McCrory (Peaky Blinders, Penny Dreadful) stars as Gere's estranged British heiress wife, while Billy Howle (Outlaw King, Dunkirk) plays their business-minded son who becomes a liability when he unexpectedly suffers a brain-related stroke.

"Your son can't be trusted," an assistant tells Gere's character in the above trailer. It appears the son has now become so impulsive that there's a chance he could spill incriminating secrets concerning the family's business.

With episodes helmed by British director James Kent (Testament of Youth, The Aftermath), "MotherFatherSon" will be airing in the U.K. later in the year. As of yet, there's no official U.S. release date.

Richard Gere plays Max, a charismatic self-made American businessman with media outlets in London and around the world.

Helen McCrory plays Kathryn, a British heiress who has been estranged from Max following the breakdown of their marriage some years before.

Their 30 year-old son, Caden (Billy Howle), runs Max's UK newspaper and is primed to follow in his father's footsteps as one of the most powerful men in the world. But when Caden's self-destructive lifestyle spirals out of control, the devastating consequences threaten the future of the family, its empire, and a country on the brink of change...
