Starz Announces Premiere Date for New Drama 'Dangerous Liaisons' Starring Alice Englert and Nicholas Denton

Starz has today announced the premiere date for its upcoming original drama series Dangerous Liaisons starring Alice Englert and Nicholas Denton.

The 8-episode first season will launch on Sunday, November 6 at 9/8c. 

The drama is a bold prelude of the classic 18th century novel by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos focusing on the origin story of how his iconic characters, the Marquise de Merteuil (Englert) and the Vicomte de Valmont (Denton), met as passionate young lovers in Paris on the eve of the revolution. This modern take on a classic story takes audiences through wonder and terror, beauty and degradation, seduction and deception in pre-revolutionary Paris. Driven to right the wrongs of their past, the young couple's survival depends on their skills of seduction and manipulation of not only the French nobility but of each other.

In addition to Englert and Denton, the drama stars Lesley Manville, Kosar Ali, Carice Van Houten, Hilton Pelser, Fisayo Akinade, Michael McElhatton, Nathanael Saleh, Colette Dalal Tchantcho, Hakeem Kae-Kazim and Tom Wlaschiha.

Harriet Warner developed the drama. She executive produces with Colin Callendar, Tony Krantz, Scott Huff, Bethan Jones and Christopher Hampton. Lionsgate Television, Playground Entertainment and Flame Ventures produce.
