Launch Date for Epic Western The English

BBcThe BBC announces the series will premiere on 10 November on BBC Two, with all episodes available immediately on BBC iPlayer from the same date. Outside of the UK The English will then launch in the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the Nordics on Prime Video on 11 November.

Written and directed by multi-award-winning Hugo Blick (The Honourable Woman, Black Earth Rising, The Shadow Line), and produced by acclaimed production company Drama Republic (Doctor Foster, Us, The Honourable Woman), a Mediawan company, in association with All3Media International, The English takes the core themes of identity and revenge to tell a uniquely compelling parable on race, love and power. An aristocratic Englishwoman, Lady Cornelia Locke (Emily Blunt) and a Pawnee ex-cavalry scout, Eli Whipp (Chaske Spencer) come together in 1890 mid-America to cross a violent landscape built on dreams and blood.

Both of them have a clear sense of their destiny but neither is aware that it is rooted in a shared past. They must face increasingly terrifying obstacles that will test them to their cores, physically and psychologically. But as each obstacle is overcome it draws them closer to their ultimate destination, the new town of Hoxem, Wyoming. It is here, after an investigation by the local sheriff Robert Marshall (Stephen Rea) and young widow Martha Myers (Valerie Pachner) into a series of bizarre and macabre unsolved murders, that the full extent of their intertwined history will be truly understood, and they will come face to face with the future they must live.

The series’ acclaimed ensemble cast includes Stephen Rea (The Shadow Line, The Honourable Woman), Valerie Pachner (A Hidden Life, The Kingsman), Rafe Spall (The Salisbury Poisonings, Trying), Tom Hughes (A Discovery Of Witches, Victoria), Toby Jones (Marvellous, Detectorists) and Ciarán Hinds (The Terror, The Woman In Black).

The English is produced by Drama Republic Ltd and Eight Rooks Ltd. It is created by Hugo Blick—who also serves as an executive producer, director, and writer. Emily Blunt also serves as executive producer, alongside Greg Brenman (Peaky Blinders, The Honourable Woman) for Drama Republic, and Mona Qureshi for the BBC. Colin Wratten (Killing Eve) is producer. The English was commissioned for the BBC by Charlotte Moore, Chief Content Officer, and Piers Wenger, former Director of BBC Drama Commissioning. The English is co-produced by Amazon Studios and BBC in association with All3 Media International who handled international sales.
