Joss Whedon’s six part genre-bending period drama The Nevers will screen on Binge from April.
It stars Laura Donnelly, Ann Skelly plus Olivia Williams, James Norton, Tom Riley, Rochelle Neil, Eleanor Tomlinson, Amy Manson, Pip Torrens, Denis O’Hare, Zackary Momoh, Elizabeth Berrington, Kiran Sawar, Anna Devlin, Viola Prettejohn, Ella Smith, Nick Frost and Ben Chaplin.
Foxtel is also yet to advise an airdate.
In the last years of Queen Victoria’s reign, London is beset by the “Touched”: people – mostly women – who suddenly manifest abnormal abilities – some charming, some very disturbing. Among them are Amalia True (Laura Donnelly), a mysterious, quick-fisted widow, and Penance Adair (Ann Skelly), a brilliant young inventor. They are the champions of this new underclass, making a home for the Touched, while fighting the forces of… well, pretty much all the forces – to make room for those whom history as we know it has no place.
The Nevers is created and executive produced by Joss Whedon; executive produced by Bernadette Caulfield, Ilene S. Landress, Doug Petrie, Jane Espenson and Philippa Goslett.
Update: Whedon parted The Nevers in November citing exhaustion, after an investigation by WarnerMedia following allegations by actor Ray Fisher of “abusive, unprofessional” behaviour on the set of the feature film Justice League. In December WarnerMedia announced that its investigation had concluded and that “remedial action” had been taken. Whedon has since drawn headlines following separate allegations by Charisma Carpenter during Buffy, Angel.
