Matthew Macfadyen to star in Howards End

Deadline.com reports that Starz and BBC have teamed up to produce the limited series Howards End, based on the book by E. M. Forster.  Matthew Macfadyen will be joined by Haley Atwell and Tracy Ullman.  The four-part series will air on BBC One in the UK and Starz in the U.S. Howards End will film in and around London.

Howards End explores the changing landscape of social and class divisions in turn-of-the-century England through the prism of three families: the intellectual and idealistic Schlegels, the wealthy Wilcoxes from the world of business and the working-class Basts. Playground is executive producing in association with City Entertainment and KippSter Entertainment.

 

Atwell will play Margaret Schlegel, Macfadyen will portray Henry Wilcox, and Ullman will play Aunt Juley Mund.

'Succession' picked up for 10 episodes by HBO

HBO picks up 10 episode on its drama pilot "Succession".

Succession follows the saga of the Roys, a fictional American global-media family that is not only rich and powerful but also powerfully dysfunctional.  It will explore family loyalty, international business, and the perils of power in the 21st century.

Brian Cox stars in the 10-episode drama series as Logan, the patriarch of the Roy family who is tough and powerful, but aging fast in his role as the head of the international media conglomerate owned by his family. Then there’s Jeremy Strong as Kendall Roy, the eldest son of the family (from Logan’s second marriage) who acts as a division president at the family firm and is also the heir apparent to Roy family business. Kieran Culkin plays Kendall’s outspoken and fun-loving younger brother Roman, who still sits on the board of directors at the family firm, but doesn’t really work there anymore. Finally, Sarah Snook plays Shiv (Siobhan), the only daughter in the Roy family.

Matthew Macfadyen is Shiv's equally-ambitious business partner and fiancée Tom.
