Jack Bannon Cast as Pennyworth in the Upcoming EPIX Series

Jack Bannon (The Imitation GameRipper Street) has been cast in the lead role of Alfred Pennyworth in the upcoming EPIX drama series Pennyworth, from Warner Horizon Scripted Television and based on the characters from DC.

The 10-episode, one-hour drama series is based on DC characters created by Bob Kane with Bill Finger. It follows Bruce Wayne’s legendary butler, Alfred Pennyworth, a former British SAS soldier in his 20s, who forms a security company and goes to work with a young billionaire Thomas Wayne, who’s not yet Bruce’s father, in 1960s London.

Alfred Pennyworth is a boyishly handsome, cheerful, charming, clever young man from London. Honest, open-faced and witty; you’d never take him for an SAS killer. Alfred doesn’t know how to reconcile the kind-hearted boy he used to be with the cold, calculated killer he was forced to become. He’s a man on the make, who doesn’t know what to make of himself yet.

Production on the series will begin Monday, October 22, 2018, at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden in the UK.

Pennyworth is from executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (Gotham, The Mentalist, Rome) and executive producer/director Danny Cannon (Gotham, CSI series).
