Upcoming fictional drama The Young Pope, featuring Jude Law, has been getting a bit of noise overseas after this trailer was released.
The project is an HBO, SKY Atlantic and Canal+ co-production so it isn’t clear where this will air in Australia.
Its first outing appears to be on October 21 in Italy and Germany. Showcase has confirmed it is not part of its HBO output deal.
Lenny Belardo is no ordinary Pope. He is the youngest and first American Pope in history. We find him on the morning of his first day in office, preparing to enter into the power struggles inside the closed, secretive Vatican state.
The Young Pope stars Jude Law and Diane Keaton and plays out against the stunning backdrop of papal Rome. The modern-day drama was created by Oscar winning director Paolo Sorrentino.
