StarzPlay Picks Up Epix Noir Drama ‘Perpetual Grace LTD’ With February UK Premiere
StarzPlay has picked up the UK rights to ‘Perpetual Grace LTD‘, Epix modern noir drama starring Sir Ben Kingsley, Jimmi Simpson and Jacki Weaver, setting a February UK premiere date.
Perpetual Grace LTD follows James (Jimmi Simpson – ‘Westworld’, ‘Unsolved‘), a young grifter, as he attempts to prey upon Pastor Byron Brown (Sir Ben Kingsley – ‘Iron Man 3’, ‘Gandhi’, ‘Schindler’s List’), who turns out to be far more dangerous than James suspects. The pastor and his wife Lillian (Jacki Weaver – ‘Silver Linings Playbook’, ‘Bird Box’) – known to their parishioners as Pa and Ma – have used religion to bilk hundreds of innocent people out of their life savings in Half Acre, NM.
The series also stars Luis Guzmán, Damon Herriman and Chris Conrad, with Terry O’Quinn, Kurtwood Smith, Timothy Spall, Michael Chernus, Efren Ramirez, Hana Mae Lee and Dana DeLorenzo.
The 10-episode series comes from Steve Conrad and Bruce Terris, the people behind ‘Patriot’, who wrote the drama, exec produce, and serve as showrunners, with Conrad also directing a number of episodes. Joining them as executive producers are Escape Artists’ Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch. The series is produced by MGM Television.
For those of you confused as to what is STARZPLAY, it is an addition “add-on” channel you can get via Amazon Prime Video, Virgin Media and Apple TV. This is an additional service and costs £4.99 a month. You can also get it directly via the StarzPlay app on Android and Apple. Over the past few months, it has been building a solid list of high-quality shows, making it well worth the additional fee, which you can turn on and off month by month, so if you want to subscribe for a few months and binge through things, then turn it off, go for it!
‘Perpetual Grace LTD‘ premieres Thursday, 6th February 2020 on StarzPlay.
