Written and directed by “The Honourable Woman” creator Hugo Blick, the show is set in the mid-American landscape of 1890, and follows Cornelia Locke (Blunt), an Englishwoman who arrives into the new and wild landscape of the West to get revenge on the man she sees as responsible for the death of her son. Upon meeting Eli Whipp (Spencer), an ex-cavalry scout and member of the Pawnee Nation by birth, they join together and discover a shared history which must be defeated at all costs, if either of them are to survive.

Rounding out the cast is Rafe Spall (“The Salisbury Poisonings”), Tom Hughes (“A Discovery of Witches”), Stephen Rea (“The Shadow Line”), Valerie Pachner (“The Kingsman”), Toby Jones (“Marvellous”), Ciaran Hinds (“The Terror”), Malcolm Storry (“The Princess Bride”), Steve Wall (“Raised by Wolves”), Nichola McAuliffe (“Tomorrow Never Dies”), Sule Rimi (“Black Earth Rising”) and Cristian Solimeno (“Avenue 5”). headtopics.com

Blick said: “The chance to make a Western with Emily Blunt and the cast is so delicious I’m still wondering if it’s one of those weird dreams we were all having during lockdown. If not, a thrilling, romantic, epic horse-opera is heading to your screen sometime next year, and I couldn’t be more excited.”

Greg Brenman, CEO of Drama Republic, added: “Hugo Blick has created a compelling, modern love story set against the epic landscape of a Western. ‘The English’ is a true adventure that will tell us as much about the times we live in today as the period in which it is set.”

Piers Wenger, director of BBC Drama, said: “I’m delighted that Hugo’s beautiful scripts are finally coming to life in ‘The English.’ With a cast led by the exceptional Emily Blunt and Chaske Spencer, I have no doubt that this thrilling and compelling story will be a treat for BBC audiences when it hits our screens”.

Brad Beale, VP of worldwide licensing for Prime Video, said: “We can’t wait to break new ground and bring ‘The English’ to Prime Video. We know Hugo Blick’s incredible tale of love, loss, and revenge — brought to life on screen by the talented Emily Blunt, Chaske Spencer, and the entire cast of ‘The English’ — will captivate Prime members across the globe.” headtopics.com
