MotherFatherSon, a new 8-part drama written by Tom Rob Smith (London Spy, The Assassination Of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story), arrives on BBC 2 on Wednesday 6th March.

Starring Richard Gere, Helen McCrory, Billy Howle and Sarah Lancashire the series will air on BBC Two.

US-born Max (Gere) is at the heart of British politics and power, owner of a media empire that includes newspapers and television stations. His aristocratic ex-wife Kathryn (McCrory) has been frozen out of the family and spends her days working at a homeless shelter.

Their son, Caden (Billy Howle), is at the heart of Max’s operation, editing broadsheet newspaper The National Reporter – but he’s out of his depth and the strain is showing.

When Caden suffers a catastrophic breakdown, the fragmented family is pulled back together.

The cast also includes Pippa Bennett-Warner as Lauren, Sinéad Cusack as Maggie, Paul Ready as Nick, Danny Sapani as the Prime Minister and Joseph Mawle as Scott.

MotherFatherSon airs at 9pm on Wednesday 6th March 2019 on BBC 2.
