'THE ENGLISH GAME'
JULIAN FELLOWES FOOTBALL ORIGINS SERIES AT NETFLIX
Edward Holcroft will lead The English Game
While his fans are waiting for Julian Fellowes to finish shooting the movie version of Downton Abbey, and while we are waiting for the production on the small screen adaptation of his own Napoleonic wars set novel Belgravia to start in United Kingdom with Alice Eve as the lead, and while he is also preparing The Gilded Age epic TV saga at NBC, he has finished casting for another new period set television series of his, but this time something more for men! THE ENGLISH GAME will be a six part series set in the late 19th century and will describe how the world's most popular sport of football crossed class lines and became a worldwide phenomenon despite its humble beginnings on the pitch at London’s Limes Field! 

THE LADS IN THE TEAM  
To air sometime next year at Netflix, the series will have dashing Edward Holcroft (whom we watched in period set series Wolfhall, Gunpowder, Alias Grace and also as Ben Whishaw's gay lover in London Spy) as the lead star of
Craig Parkinson, Henry Lloyd Hughes and Kevin Guthrie
the team which, back then, included both Etonians and factory workers! The cast also includes Craig Parkinson, Kevin Guthrie and Spanish Princess
Gerard Kearns, Ben Batt and Daniel Ings will also star!
herself Charlotte Hope! They will be joined by James Harkness, Jamestown's Niamh Walsh and Ben Batt, Gerard Kearns, Daniel Ings, Les Miserables' star Henry Lloyd Hughes, Kate Phillips and Downton Abbey's Joncie Elmore.

  1. Handsome cast, but not my cuppa. I do love how sports have the ability to draw people together from all walks of life. It doesn't matter your age, race, what your political beliefs are... when you're out there rooting for your team, you're one with all. Except with the other team, of course. They can rot in hell ;)

    1. I'd gladly join this team, though! I absolutely adore Edward, Henry, Craig and Ben! And Niamh is amazing in Jamestown as well.
