TNT Sets Premiere Date for New Drama 'Will'

TNT has today announced a premiere date for its new original drama series Will starring Laurie Davidson as a young William Shakespeare.

The 10-episode first season of the new drama will premiere on Monday, July 10 at 9/8c.

As Will opens, a young William Shakespeare has just arrived onto the punk-rock theatre scene in 16th century London. It is in this seductive, violent world that his raw talent faces rioting audiences, religious fanatics and raucous sideshows.

In addition to Davidson, the drama also stars Olivia DeJonge, Ewen Bremner, Colm Meaney, Mattias Inwood, Jamie Campbell Bower, William Houston, Lukas Rolfe, Max Bennett and Jasmin Savoy Brown.

Craig Pearce created the drama. He executive produces with Alison Owen, Debra Hayward, Vince Gerardis, Howard Braunstein, Louise Rosager and director Shekhar Kapur. Studio T produces.
