Channel 4 have released a first look trailer along with six first look images from their upcoming comedy-drama Chivalry, co-created, co-written by and starring Steve Coogan and Sarah Solemani.
Chivalry promises a fresh new look on gender politics and romance and asks the question: can one build and sustain a successful, relevant career in Hollywood without sacrificing authenticity.
How fluid are our politics and how political are our fluids? And can romance blossom - not in spite of #MeToo, but because of it?
Chivalry explores the truths and the myths behind these characters, their judgements of each other and their assumptions of themselves, seeking to break down and explore classic stereotypes. It promises to grant the audience permission to laugh while asking complex questions that as a society, we often find hard to discuss.
The first look images feature Steve Coogan as Cameron, a successful film producer and ‘ladies' man’ and Sarah Solemani as Bobby, a passionate indie-darling filmmaker.
Also joining the ensemble cast are Wanda Sykes as astute studio executive Jean Shrill, Sienna Miller as Cameron’s leading lady Lark, Lolly Adefope as Ama, Cameron’s latest assistant, Aisling Bea as intimacy coordinator Tatiana and Adjani Salmon as Bobby’s devoted and patient husband Aston.
Chivalry will air this spring on Channel 4
