Channel 4 have released further first look images from upcoming comedy-drama Chivalry, co-created, co-written by and starring Steve Coogan and Sarah Solemani.
The first look images feature Coogan as Cameron, a successful film producer and ‘ladies man’ and Solemani as Bobby, a passionate indie-darling filmmaker.
Chivalry offers a fresh new look on gender politics and romance, and asks the question: can one build and sustain a successful, relevant career in Hollywood without sacrificing authenticity.
How fluid are our politics and how political are our fluids? And can romance blossom - not in spite of #MeToo, but because of it?
Joining Coogan and Solemani are an ensemble cast including Emmy award-winning Wanda Sykes as astute studio executive Jean Shrill, Sienna Miller as Cameron’s leading lady, Lark, Lolly Adefope as Ama, Cameron’s latest assistant, Aisling Bea as intimacy coordinator, Tatiana, and Adjani Salmon as Bobby’s devoted and patient husband, Aston.
Chivalry explores the truths and the myths behind these characters, their judgements of each other and their assumptions of themselves, seeking to break down and explore classic stereotypes. Chivalry grants the audience permission to laugh while asking complex questions that as a society, we often find hard to discuss.
The new six-part series will air this Spring on Channel 4 and All 4.
