DESCRIPTION:
(from BBC America's press release, October 2020) During BBC AMERICA's virtual New York Comic Con panel for its newest original series, The Watch, released today, it was announced that the series will premiere on Sunday, January 3rd at 8PM ET/PT. Additionally on the panel, it was revealed that Wendell Pierce (The Wire, Selma) and Matt Berry (What We Do in the Shadows, Year of the Rabbit) are joining the series voicing the characters of "DEATH," a dry, sardonic Grim Reaper, and "Wayne," a magical speaking sword, respectively. The panel, moderated by actress and host Yvette Nicole Brown (Community, Avengers: End Game), sees stars Richard Dormer (Game of Thrones), Lara Rossi (I May Destroy You), Adam Hugill (1917), Jo Eaton-Kent (Don't Forget the Driver) and Marama Corlett (Blood Drive), along with lead writer and executive producer Simon Allen (The Musketeers) and executive producer Richard Stokes (Broadchurch), discuss the origination of the series sharing anecdotes from filming earlier this year while providing a first look at the series via clips and a teaser trailer. The Watch follows an unlikely group of misfits, The City Watch, who are forced to find the guts to save the world, surprising even themselves in the process. The comedic yet thrilling series pits trolls, werewolves, wizards and other improbable heroes against an evil plot to resurrect a great dragon which would lead to the destruction of life as they know it. From lead writer and executive producer Simon Allen, the modern and inclusive series is inspired by the characters created by Sir Terry Pratchett's famous "Discworld" novels, including the captain of The City Watch Sam Vimes (Dormer), the last scion of nobility Lady Sybil Ramkin (Rossi), the naïve but heroic Carrot (Hugill), the mysterious Angua (Corlett) and the ingenious forensics expert Cheery (Eaton-Kent) together with The Watch's own idiosyncratic depiction of Death (Pierce).
