Fresh off the back of the critically acclaimed Belfast of which he was producer and director, the talented Mr Kenneth Branagh will star as Boris Johnson in a new drama series ‘This England, due for release later this year.

Written and co-directed by Michael Winterbottom, the five-part dramatisation will highlight BOJO’s tumultuous opening months as British Prime Minister, while events in government will be interwoven with stories from around the UK.
