Showtime and Channel 4 will co-produce Two Brothers Pictures’ new eight-part series “Entitled,” in association with All3Media International. The show follows Gabe, an American widower who must get to know his British wife’s estranged family in their crumbling gothic mansion in the English countryside. They compete for his affections – and his newly inherited fortune.
“Entitled” will star Brett Gelman and is created by Matt Morgan, with both Morgan and Gelman on board as executive producers. Harry Williams, Jack Williams and Sarah Hammond of Two Brothers Pictures will also executive produce, and Tim Kirkby will direct and executive produce. Production of the eight-episode season of “Entitled” is scheduled to begin in Manchester, England, in August, with the program scheduled to premiere in 2023.
Gelman has twice been part of a SAG Award-nominated ensemble, with “Stranger Things” and “Fleabag.” His numerous onscreen credits also include “Mr. Mercedes,” “Camping,” “Another Period,” “Love,” “Twin Peaks,” “Married,” “Mad Men,” and “The In-Betweeners.” Gelman has also been a writer on multiple projects including the feature film “Lemon” (which he starred in and co-wrote with Janicza Bravo) and was the co-writer with Jason Woliner on the “Dinner With Brett Gelman” trilogy of comedy specials.
“I am so excited to be back at it with my fam that is Harry, Jack, and Sarah at Two Brothers. I am so incredibly grateful to Channel 4 and Showtime, and blessed to have a genius like Matt creating such a deliciously twisted world,” Brett Gelman commented.
Fiona McDermott, Head of Comedy at Channel 4, added: “The series is a brilliant marriage of Brett and Matt’s talents. Wicked and hilarious, ‘Entitled’ promises to deliver a comic ensemble with a ruthless, mischievous and gripping story, and we’re really thrilled to be working with Showtime and Two Brothers Pictures to deliver it for a Channel 4 audience.”
Lastly, Amy Israel, Executive Vice President, Global Programming at Showtime Networks, said: “With Matt Morgan’s razor-sharp writing, the world-class producing team of Harry, Jack and Sarah at Two Brothers, and a role perfectly written for the singular Brett Gelman, ‘Entitled’ is led by an undeniable creative team at the center of a funny, suspenseful and surprisingly emotional comedy.”
