This has aired on BBC Two in the UK, and is coming to Starz starting Friday, June 21, 2019!


Starz announced today that they went on a spree of acquisitions including the drama series MotherFatherSon starring Richard Gere, which premiered earlier this spring on BBC Two...

MotherFatherSon is an eight-part drama series created by Tom Rob Smith (American Crime Story, London Spy) and also stars Helen McCrory (Peaky Blinders, The Queen). It is distributed by BBC Studios. In it, Gere plays the owner of a media empire in Britain where he holds dark secrets on everyone and uses it to fuel is power.



Max (Gere) owns one of the world’s most influential media empires. Information is his trade: he holds dark secrets on everyone, and uses his power ruthlessly. His son Caden (Billy Howle) is editor of Max’s mouthpiece, The National newspaper. But Caden is crumbling under the pressure of his father’s expectation, numbing his pain with cocaine and intense anonymous sex. When Caden’s excess causes a massive stroke, he’s left like a helpless child. For Kathryn (Helen McCrory) – Max’s estranged wife – this is a chance to reconnect with the sensitive boy Max ripped away from her. As Max and Kathryn fight for the soul of their son, another fight is about to begin, a fight for the heart of the nation. Because Caden knows secrets that could bring Max’s empire crashing down. And Caden’s silence can’t be bought.

Just finished watching this and thought it was excellent; wonderful acting all around (even Richard Gere, who is usually too smirky for me) and riveting plotlines. I wish there were more episodes coming.
