Showtime and Channel 4 Team for Comedy 'Entitled' Starring Brett Gelman

Showtime and Channel 4 will co-produce the original comedy series Entitled starring Brett Gelman (Stranger Things, Fleabag). Production on the 8-episode first season will begin in Manchester, England this August for a 2023 premiere.

The comedy will follow Gabe (Gelman), an American widower who must get to know his British wife's estranged family. In their crumbling gothic mansion in the English countryside, they compete for his affections - and his newly inherited fortune.

Matt Morgan created the comedy, with Tim Kirkby set to direct the entire first season. They will executive produce with Gelman, Harry Williams, Jack Williams and Sarah Hammond. All3Media International and Two Brothers Pictures will produce.

"With Matt Morgan's razor-sharp writing, the world-class producing team of Harry, Jack and Sarah at Two Brothers, and a role perfectly written for the singular Brett Gelman, Entitled is led by an undeniable creative team at the center of a funny, suspenseful and surprisingly emotional comedy," said Amy Israel, Executive Vice President of Global Programming, Showtime Networks.
