Stephen Butchard’s new adaptation of C. J. Sampson’s SHARDLAKE novels coming to Disney+

All at The Agency would like to pass our congratulations on to Stephen Butchard on the announcement that SHARDLAKE will be coming soon to Disney+.

Based on the internationally acclaimed Tudor murder mystery novels by C.J. Sansom, the four-part drama will be Written and Executive Produced by Stephen Butchard and is set in 16th century England during the dissolution of the monasteries.

The series will follow the story of Matthew Shardlake, played by Arthur Hughes, a lawyer with an acute sense of justice and one of the few honest men in a world beset with scheming and plots. Shardlake works for Thomas Cromwell, played by Sean Bean (“Time,” “Game of Thrones”), the dangerous and all-powerful right-hand man to Henry VIII.

The series is executive produced by George Ormond and Mark Pybus for The Forge, Stevie Lee for Runaway Fridge and Lee Mason for Disney+ EMEA.
