HBO Sets Premiere Date for “Gentleman Jack”

The drama series Gentleman Jack will begin its eight-episode season on Monday, April 22 on HBO. Created, written and co-directed by Sally Wainwright (Happy Valley), and starring Suranne Jones (Doctor Foster), Gentleman Jack tells the story of a woman who had a passion for life and a mind for business, and bucked society’s expectations at every turn.

Set in the complex, changing world of 1832 Halifax, West Yorkshire — the cradle of the evolving Industrial Revolution — Gentleman Jack focuses on landowner Anne Lister (Jones), who is determined to transform the fate of her faded ancestral home, Shibden Hall, by reopening the coal mines and marrying well. The charismatic, single-minded, swashbuckling Lister — who dresses head-to-toe in black and charms her way into high society — has no intention of marrying a man.

The story examines Lister’s relationships with her family, servants, tenants and industrial rivals and, most importantly, would-be wife. Based in historical fact, the real-life Anne Lister’s story was recorded in the four million words of her diaries, and the most intimate details of her life, once hidden in a secret code, have been decoded and revealed for the series.

Sophia Rundle (Bodyguard), Gemma Wheelan (Game of Thrones), Timothy West (Last Tango in Halifax), and Gemma Jones (God’s Own Country) co-star in the show. Rundle plays Ann Walker, the wealthy heiress on whom Anne Lister sets her sights as a prospective wife. Wheelan plays Marian, Anne Lister’s sister. West plays Jeremy Lister, the sisters’ father. Jones plays Aunt Anne Lister.
