Channel 4 has partnered with SHOWTIME for a new comedy series with Stranger Things star Brett Gelman called Entitled.
Created by Matt Morgan (Mister Winner), the series follows Gabe (Gelman), an American widower who is forced into close quarters with his British wife’s estranged family. In their crumbling gothic mansion in the English countryside, Gabe must get to know the family as they compete for his affections, and his newly inherited fortune.
Two Brothers Pictures, the company behind Fleabag, will produce the eight-episode series alongside SHOWTIME, with Harry Williams, Jack Williams and Sarah Hammond acting as executive producers.
Brett Gelman said: “I am so excited to be back at it with my fam that is Harry, Jack, and Sarah at Two Brothers. I am so incredibly grateful to Channel 4 and SHOWTIME and blessed to have a genius like Matt creating such a deliciously twisted world”.
Fiona McDermott, Head of Comedy at Channel 4, said: “The series is a brilliant marriage of Brett and Matt’s talents; wicked and hilarious, Entitled promises to deliver a comic ensemble with a ruthless, mischievous and gripping story and we’re really thrilled to be working with SHOWTIME and Two Brothers Pictures to deliver it for a Channel 4 audience”.
Production of Entitled is due to begin in Manchester in August, with the programme scheduled to premiere in 2023.
