PHILIPPINES, APRIL 19, 2022 –Two new HBO Original Series We Own This City and Gentleman Jack Season 2 premiere Tuesday, April 26 on HBO GO. We Own This City also debuts on the same day as the U.S. on April 26, 9am on HBO, with the same night encore at 10pm.
Gritty and unapologetic, We Own This City is a six-episode HBO limited series that chronicles the rise and fall of Baltimore Police Department’s Gun Trace Task Force’s (GTTF) and the corruption and moral collapse that befell an American city in which the policies of drug prohibition and mass arrest were championed at the expense of actual police work.
Jon Bernthal plays Sgt. Wayne Jenkins of the Baltimore Police Department, perhaps the central figure in the sprawling federal corruption case that centred on its Gun Trace Task Force, a plainclothes unit that went completely rogue and began hunting and robbing citizens and drug dealers alike as decades of a relentless drug war and mass incarceration in Baltimore spun wildly out of control.
We Own This City also stars main cast Wunmi Mosaku, Jamie Hector, McKinley Belcher III, Darrell Britt-Gibson, Josh Charles, DagmaraDomińczyk, Rob Brown, Don Harvey, David Corenswet, Larry Mitchell, Ian Duff, Delaney Williams, and Lucas Van Engen.
Guest stars in the series include Treat Williams, Gabrielle Carteris, Tray Chaney, DomenickLombardozzi, Thaddeus Street, Jermaine Crawford, Nathan E. Corbett, Chris Clanton, Anwan Glover, Bobby Brown, Michael Salconi, Susan Rome, Kim Tuvin, and Maria Broom.
We Own This City was created and executive produced by George Pelecanos and David Simon; directed and executive produced by Reinaldo Marcus Green; executive produced by Nina K. Noble, Ed Burns, and Kary Antholis. In addition, co-executive producer Bill Zorzi, as well as writers Pelecanos, Simon, Burns, Zorzi and D. Watkins worked on the series.
HBO Original Series Gentleman Jack Season 2 returns to the British city of Yorkshire in 1834, where all eyes are on two women’s confrontation with the era’s rigid ideas of gender roles.
Anne Lister (Suranne Jones) and Ann Walker (Sophie Rundle), the unconventional couple who has set up home together at Shibden Hall, are determined to combine their estates and become a power couple. Anne Lister’s entrepreneurial spirit frightens the locals as much as her unconventional love life and, with Halifax on the brink of revolution, her refusal to keep a low profile becomes provocative and dangerous.
The new second season will continue to reflect the real-life diaries of Anne Lister– part of which were written in code – as its source, with every part of Lister’s story based on historical fact and the five million words she wrote in her journals.
Gentleman Jack Season 2 stars Gemma Jones as Aunt Anne Lister, Timothy West as Jeremy Lister, Jodhi May (Lady Vere Cameron), Katherine Kelly (Elizabeth Sutherland), Derek Riddell (Captain George Sutherland), Stephanie Cole (Aunt Ann Walker), Peter Davison (William Priestley), Amelia Bullmore (Eliza Priestley), Vincent Franklin (Christopher Rawson), Shaun Dooley (Jeremiah Rawson), Rosie Cavaliero (Elizabeth Cordingley), Joe Armstrong (Samuel Washington), Anthony Flanagan (Ben Sowden) and George Costigan (James Holt).
Executive producers include Sally Wainwright, Suranne Jones, Faith Penhale, Will Johnston and Ben. Phil Collinson and Stella Merz are the producers, with Edward Hall, Amanda Brotchie and Fergus O’Brien as producers.
