LOS ANGELES – August 18, 2022 – SHOWTIME has announced that Donald Sumpter (Game of Thrones), Brendan Patricks (Downton Abbey), Pippa Bennett-Warner (Gangs of London), Mark Quartley (Lucky Man), Jonathan Livingstone (Peacock ), Charlotte Louise Arrowsmith (This is Going to Hurt) and Kelly Wenham (Merlin) have joined the cast of ENTITLED, starring and produced by Brett Gelman (Fleabag, Stranger Things). Co-produced by SHOWTIME and Channel 4 in the UK, in association with All3Media International, filming began this week on the eight-episode comedy series in Manchester, England. ENTITLED is created and executive produced by Matt Morgan (Mister Winner, The Mimic). Two Brothers Pictures’ Harry Williams, Jack Williams and Sarah Hammond, producers of the Emmy(R)-winning Fleabag and International Emmy-nominated BACK TO LIFE, also executive produce. Tim Kirkby (The Pentaverate, Don’t Forget the Driver, Veep) will direct the first season and also executive produce.

ENTITLED follows Gabe (Gelman), a conniving American widower who must posthumously meet The Beaucrofts, his eccentric British wife’s estranged family, in their crumbling Gothic mansion in the English countryside. As Gabe’s search for closure and the truth reveal a newly inherited fortune, each family member’s ambition comes to a head.

Sumpter will play Quincy, the cold and hard-hearted baron. Patricks will play Aston, the older son, mentally and emotionally equipped for nothing. Bennett-Warner will play Xanthe, the quick-witted, acidic and guarded adoptive sister. Quarterly will play Bart, the childish, agoraphobic younger brother. Livingstone will play Neville, Gabe’s lawyer and friend. Arrowsmith will play Mrs. Whitby, the devoted housekeeper and keeper of secrets. Wenham will play Elizabeth, Gabe’s wife, compassionate but living a lie.
