Coogan plays Cameron, a successful film producer and 'women guy,' while Solemani plays Bobby, a passionate indie-darling director, in the first look photographs. Wanda Sykes (The Upshaws, Blackish) as astute studio executive Jean Shrill, Sienna Miller (The Loudest Voice, American Woman) as Cameron's leading lady, Lark, Lolly Adefope (Ghosts, Shrill) as Ama, Cameron's latest assistant, Aisling Bea (This Way Up, Living With Yourself) as intimacy coordinator Tatiana, and Adjani Salmon (Dreaming Whilst Black, Enterprice) as Chivalry offers a fresh new look on gender politics and romance, and asks the question: can one build and sustain a successful, relevant career in Hollywood without sacrificing authenticity.
How fluid are our politics and how political are our fluids? And can romance blossom - not in spite of #MeToo, but because of it?
Chivalry explores the truths and the myths behind these characters, their judgements of each other and their assumptions of themselves, seeking to break down and explore classic stereotypes. Chivalry grants the audience permission to laugh while asking complex questions that as a society, we often find hard to discuss.
The new six-part series will air this Spring on Channel 4 and All 4.
