DESCRIPTION:
(from Hulu's press release, December 2016) In a deal with All3Media International, Hulu has acquired the U.S. rights to all episodes of hit series National Treasure, the ratings-winning drama produced by The Forge Entertainment for Channel 4. The first season of the series from Jack Thorne will debut in the U.S. as a Hulu Original on March 1, 2017. After debuting on UK's Channel 4 to strong ratings, National Treasure quickly became a must-see television event. Hulu's audience will soon be able to experience the series in its entirety when all episodes land on the service under the Hulu Original slate. The four-part drama series from BAFTA-winning writer Jack Thorne and The Forge Entertainment was Channel 4's highest-rated series each day it aired. In addition to receiving critical acclaim and overwhelming praise from viewers throughout its compelling first season, National Treasure is now the highest-rated drama to premiere on the network. Written by Jack Thorne (This is England '86, '88 and '90, Skins, The Last Panthers) and executive produced by George Faber (Shameless, Elizabeth I, The Shadow Line) and George Ormond (War and Peace, Silent Witness), National Treasure is a compelling and timely four-part serial drama examining the fallout that occurs when accusations of sexual misconduct are lodged against a fictional public figure, exploring their impact on the accused and those most closely associated with him as he is brought to trial. The series follows Paul Finchley, played by BAFTA-winner Robbie Coltrane (Harry Potter, Cracker, Tutti Frutti), as a bona fide "national treasure" and one half of a popular, long-running comedy double act. The famous comedian's world is thrown into chaos when he is accused of historic sexual abuse. BAFTA-winner Julie Walters (Harry Potter, Brooklyn, Brave, Mamma Mia, Billy Elliott, Educating Rita), Andrea Riseborough (Nocturnal Animals, Birdman, Oblivion) and Tim McInnerny (Notting Hill, Blackadder, Game of Thrones) also star.
