In Pennyworth, the DC Entertainment-produced version of the story of Bruce Wayne’s legendary butler, young Alfred Pennyworth is much more than just a valet.
In Epix’ 10-episode, hour-long drama, Pennyworth (Jack Bannon) is a young and cocky former British SAS soldier. When he returns home from the war, he forms a security company. Young billionaire Thomas Wayne (Ben Aldridge) — not yet father to Bruce with Batman not even a twinkle in anyone’s eye — hires Pennyworth to protect him.
Besides Bannon and Aldridge, Pennyworth stars Paloma Faith, Jason Flemyng, Ryan Fletcher, Hainsley Lloyd Bennett, Emma Paetz, Polly Walker and Emma Corrin.
Pennyworth comes from executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (Gotham, The Mentalist, Rome) and executive producer/director Danny Cannon (Gotham, CSI series).
Production on the series is currently underway at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden, in the UK; Pennyworth is the first television series to film at Leavesden.
