Kenneth Branagh as Boris Johnson in This England

Sky have shared a new teaser for their upcoming series ‘This England’ (formerly This Sceptred Isle), which stars Kenneth Branagh as UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson in his first months in office. All six episodes will launch on Sky Atlantic and streaming service NOW on September 21.

Co-written and directed by Michael Winterbottom and starring BAFTA® and Academy Award®-winner Kenneth Branagh. This England, based on Boris Johnson’s tumultuous first months as Prime Minister, traces the impact on the country of the first wave of the Coronavirus pandemic. The drama takes us inside the halls of power, as Johnson (Branagh) grapples with COVID-19, Brexit, and a controversial personal and political life.

The events in government are interwoven with stories from around the country, from the experts and scientists racing against time to understand the virus; the doctors, nurses and care-home workers on the frontline working tirelessly and heroically to contain and overcome it; and ordinary people whose lives were thrown into turmoil.


This England‘s cast also includes Ophelia Lovibond, Andrew Buchan, Tim Goodman, Alec Nicholls, James Corrigan, Rachel Sophia-Anthony, Simon Kunz, Greta Bellamacina, and Simon Paisley Day.
