WATCH: Jude Law is the Pope in first trailer for Paulo Sorrentino’s The Young Pope
The first teaser trailer for Sky Atlantic’s upcoming new series, The Young Pope, has been released.
The Young Pope stars Jude Law as Lenny Belardo, the first American Pope in history (Pope Pius XIII). A charismatic and refreshing change from the norm, the College of the Cardinals see Belardo as the answer to Catholicism’s tarnished media reputation. However, the enigmatic and dangerous Belardo has his own agenda – and it is anything but what his Vatican courtiers expect.
Alongside Law is an award-winning international cast including Diane Keaton as Sister Mary, Silvio Orlando as Secretary of State Cardinal Voiello, Scott Shepherd as Cardinal Dussolier, Cécile de France as marketeer Sofia and Javier Cámara as Master of Ceremonies Cardinal Gutierrez. It will also star Ludivine Dagnier as Esther, Tony Bertorelli as Cardinal Caltanissetta and James Cromwell as Cardinal Michael Spencer.
The Young Pope was created by Academy Award-winning director Paolo Sorrentino and is a joint production by Sky, HBO and Canal+. It will begin airing in October in the UK, Italy, Germany, Ireland, Austria and France.
