TNT has set July 10 as the premiere for its "young Shakespeare drama" titled Will, Deadline reported, adding that the series stars Laurie Davidson as William Shakespeare "and chronicles his wild 20s in the punk-rock theater scene of 16th century London." The cast also includes Olivia DeJonge, Ewen Bremner, Colm Meaney, Mattias Inwood, Jamie Campbell Bower, William Houston, Lukas Rolfe, Max Bennett and Jasmin Savoy Brown.
"Theater back then was like punk rock," said series creator Craig Pearce at TCA in January. "It was a completely revolutionary form of entertainment, something for the masses, and... was really rapidly evolving." Pearce is writing and co-executive producing the project.
