“It has been one of the great joys of my writing career to reunite this eccentric, irrepressible family of Sheffield men and women and see how 25 years, 7 Prime Ministers, and 100 broken political promises have affected their lives,” said Writer, Creator and Exec-Producer Simon Beaufoy, who is joined by co-writer Alice Nutter (“Accused”).
The first-look images introduce newcomer, Talitha Wing (“Wolfe”, “Alex Rider”), who will play Gaz’s teenage daughter, Destiny Schofield.
Other new cast members joining the ensemble include Paul Clayton (“The Crown”, “The Split”), Miles Jupp (“Why Didn’t They Ask Evans?”, “The Durrells”) and Phillip Rhys Chaudhary (“Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists”).
“Entering the Monty world, where community, friends and family step in when the state has so abysmally failed, has been a great personal reminder of what is good about the world we live in. The series has been a pleasure and a privilege to write on,” added Fellow Writer, Creator and Exec-Producer Alice Nutter.
Simon Lewis is series producer. The series is executive produced for Disney+ by Lee Mason, Director, Scripted. The Original series was developed by Searchlight Television and FX.
