What’s in store for Benedict Cumberbatch’s new TV show? Recently, Showtime and Sky Atlantic released a first look at the Sherlock star’s upcoming series Patrick Melrose, Deadline reports.
Based on the novels by Edward St. Aubyn, the limited drama “skewers the upper class as it tracks the protagonist’s harrowing odyssey from a deeply traumatic childhood through adult substance abuse and, ultimately, toward recovery.” The cast also includes Blythe Danner, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Hugo Weaving, Anna Madeley, and Allison Williams.
