Sky Atlantic and Showtime have produced a new limited series called Patrick Melrose starring Sherlock‘s Benedict Cumberbatch. The limited series sees the titular character’s struggle with his traumatic childhood, his subsequent addictions as an adult, and the road towards recovery. In a previous Reddit AMA, the actor admitted to wanting to portray the character at some point in his life.
Based on novels by Edward St. Aubyn and co-starring Jennifer Jason Leigh and Hugo Weaving, Patrick Melrose is slated to premiere later this year. For now, check the trailer cut to New Order’s “Blue Monday” above, and share your thoughts in the comments below.
