Based on the DC Comics characters created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger, Pennyworth is set in an alternate 1960s London, where former SAS soldier Alfred Pennyworth (Jack Bannon) is running a security company. After an encounter with the Raven Society - a sinister group seeking to overthrow the British government – Alfred teams up with young American billionaire Thomas Wayne (Ben Aldridge), an apparent agent for the rival No Name League and the future father of Bruce Wayne. Among the villains ranged against the duo is sadistic Raven Society enforcer Bet Sykes, played by actor, singer and songwriter Paloma Faith.
The series also stars Jason Flemyng (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, X-Men: First Class) as the evil Lord Harwood, alongside Emma Corrin (The Crown), Dorothy Atkinson (Hanna, Harlots, Call the Midwife), Emma Paetz (Gentleman Jack), Hainsley Lloyd Bennett (EastEnders), Ryan Fletcher (Outlander) and Jessica Ellerby (This Time Away, Lovesick).
Pennyworth premieres on 25 October on STARZ premium streaming service STARZPLAY, available in the UK on the Apple TV app, Amazon Prime Video Channels and Virgin Media.
