Logs, beams and planks sprayed in foam trimmed, fitted and finished for a mass of sets for ‘Will’.
TNT is falling for the Bard as the basic cable channel has picked up “Will,” a young William Shakespeare drama, to series. Ahead of its upfront presentation, the network announced that “Will” has scored a ten episode order and have released a trailer for the series which you can see below.
Laurie Davidson, a complete newcomer with no IMDb credits at this point, stars in the series as the poet who arrives onto the punk-rock theater scene in 16th century London. Olivia DeJonge, Colm Meaney, Mattias Inwood, Jamie Campbell Bower and Ewen Bremner co-star.
Billed as a contemporary version of Shakespeare’s life that is played to a modern soundtrack, the project is penned by Baz Luhrmann‘s scripting collaborator Craig Pearce and directed by “Elizabeth” helmer Shekhar Kapur.
