FIRST LOOK The Full Monty

Eight first look images have been released from new eight-part series The Full Monty, which takes place 25 years after the original British film and launches this June on Disney+.

From the makers of the iconic BAFTA-award-winning film comes The Full Monty, a new eight-part series on Disney+ which takes place 25 years after the original and follows the same band of brothers as they navigate the post-industrial city of Sheffield, and society’s crumbling healthcare, education, and employment sectors.

The comedy-drama promises to uncover what happened to the gang after they put their kit back on, exploring their brighter, sillier and more desperate moments. It will also highlight how the fiercely funny world of these working-class heroes, still residing in Sheffield, has changed in the intervening decades.

Original screenwriter Simon Beaufoy returns to write the series alongside co-writer Alice Nutter, with Uberto Pasolini back as executive producer.

Also returning, are original cast members Robert Carlyle as Gaz, Mark Addy as Dave, Lesley Sharp as Jean, Hugo Speer as Guy, Paul Barber as Horse, Steve Huison as Lomper, Wim Snape as Nathan and Tom Wilkinson as Gerald.

The first look images released today also introduce rising star Talitha Wing who will play Gaz’s teenage daughter, Destiny Schofield with Tupele Dorgu playing Destiny's mother, Yaz.

Other new cast members joining the ensemble include Paul Clayton as Lomper’s husband, Dennis and Miles Jupp as recent divorcee and housing officer Darren, who looks up to the Monty men for advice on navigating adult life. Elsewhere, Sophie Stanton plays Hetty, a colleague and friend of Jean, and Phillip Rhys Chaudhary joins as Dilip, Deputy Headteacher at the school.

Newcomers Dominic Sharkey and Natalie Davies appear as Destiny’s mates Cal and Tabani respectively, alongside Arnold Oceng, who plays a talented graffiti artist and Aiden Cook stars as wise-cracking twelve-year-old “Twiglet”.

The series is produced by Simon Lewis and executive produced for Disney+ by Director, Scripted, Lee Mason.
