Today the BBC have released first-look images from MotherFatherSon, Tom Rob Smith’s forthcoming original drama series for BBC Two.
Richard Gere is pictured for the first time as Max, the charismatic self-made American businessman with media outlets in London and around the world.
Helen McCrory is shown as Kathryn, a British heiress estranged from Max following the breakdown of their marriage some years before.
Their 30 year-old son Caden (Billy Howle, seen alongside Gere), 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.
Filming on MotherFatherSon is currently underway in London and further casting for the eight-part series includes Sarah Lancashire, Sinéad Cusack, Paul Ready, Pippa Bennett-Warner, Danny Sapani and Joseph Mawle.
MotherFatherSon will air on BBC Two
