The Nevers is a new HBO drama created by Joss Whedon. The science fiction series takes place in Victorian England where the “Touched” inhabit London. These individuals, who are mostly women, unexpectedly gain strange abilities.
Among them are Amalia True (Laura Donnelly), an enigmatic and quick-fisted widow, and Penance Adair (Ann Skelly), a young bright inventor. Together, they fight for the rights of the Touched from anyone who would threaten this new underclass in society.
Recently, the cable network announced that The Nevers is set to premiere this April and will be comprised of six episodes. Accompanying the announcement is an official teaser to provide a glimpse into this world.
In addition to Donnelly and Skelly, the ensemble cast includes Olivia Williams, James Norton, Tom Riley, Rochelle Neil, Eleanor Tomlinson, Amy Manson, Pip Torrens, Denis O’Hare, Zackary Momoh, Elizabeth Berrington, Kiran Sawar, Anna Devlin, Viola Prettejohn, Ella Smith, Nick Frost and Ben Chaplin.
Whedon serves as executive producer along with Bernadette Caulfield, Ilene S. Landress, Doug Petrie, Jane Espenson and Philippa Goslett.
