TNT’s ‘Will’ Explores The Frenzied World of Young William Shakespeare

by Devon Thomas  |  04.21.2017

TNT unleashed a trailer for its upcoming period drama Will, based on the young life of the legendary playwright and poet William Shakespeare.

The 30-second clip transports viewers to Elizabethan England where the brilliant but troubled young Shakespeare (played by newcomer Laurie Davidson) fights temptations, lust and engages in raucous behavior.

“To wing our way to heaven, all we need are words,” says Davidson’s Shakespeare in the clip.

The cast of Will also includes Ewen Bremner (Banished), Colm Meaney (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine), Olivia DeJonge, Mattias Inwood (The Shannara Chronicles), Lukas Rolfe (Grantchester), Jasmin Savoy Brown (The Leftovers) and Jamie Campbell Bower (Camelot).

Will premieres Monday, July 10 at 9 p.m. ET on TNT.
