Prime Video has released the trailer for The English, a new western drama series starring Emily Blunt. Check it out.
The English is an epic chase Western that takes the core themes of identity and revenge to tell a uniquely compelling parable on race, power, and love.
The six-part series stars Emily Blunt (A Quiet Place, Mary Poppins Returns) and Chaske Spencer (The Twilight Saga, Blindspot), and the ensemble cast includes Stephen Rea (The Crying Game), Valerie Pachner (Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore), Rafe Spall (Men in Black: International), Tom Hughes (The Crown), Toby Jones (The Girl), and Ciarán Hinds (Belfast).
In 1890 middle America, Lady Cornelia Locke (Emily Blunt), an aristocratic Englishwoman, and Eli Whipp (Chaske Spencer), a Pawnee ex-cavalry scout, come together to cross a violent landscape built on dreams and blood. Both of them have a clear sense of their destiny, but neither is aware that it is rooted in a shared past.
The two must face increasingly terrifying obstacles that will test them to their limits, both physically and psychologically. But as each obstacle is overcome, it brings them closer to their ultimate destination: the new town of Hoxem, Wyoming. It is here, after an investigation into a series of bizarre and macabre unsolved murders by the local sheriff Robert Marshall (Stephen Rea) and young widow Martha Myers (Valerie Pachner), that the full extent of Lady Cornelia and Eli’s intertwined history will be truly understood — and they will come face-to-face with the future they must live.
The English, an Amazon Original, premieres in the US, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the Nordics on Friday, November 11, exclusively on Prime Video. (You can add it to your stuff now.)
A production of Drama Republic Ltd and Eight Rooks Ltd, the series is created by Hugo Blick (The Honourable Woman), who also serves as an executive producer, director, and writer. Emily Blunt also serves as executive producer, alongside Greg Brenman (Peaky Blinders, The Honourable Woman) for Drama Republic. Colin Wratten (Killing Eve) serves as a producer. The series is a co-production with Amazon Studios and BBC, in association with All3Media International, who handled international sales.
