Melrose – First Teaser Trailer released

Sky Atlantic have released the first teaser trailer for Melrose starring Benedict Cumberbatch and adapted from the novels of Edward St Aubyn.

Melrose gleefully skewers the British upper class as it tracks the titular characters harrowing odyssey from a deeply traumatic childhood, through adult substance abuse and ultimately, towards recovery and redemption. Benedict plays Patrick Melrose, an aristocratic and outrageously funny playboy, who struggles to overcome the damage inflicted by an abusive father and a mother who tacitly condoned the behaviour.

Melrose is coming in 2018 and you can see the first trailer below
