Showtime is importing the BBC comedy-thriller Ill Behaviour stateside, premiering the six-part series as early as next month. Chris Geere (You're the Worst), Lizzy Caplan (Masters of Sex) and Tom Riley (DaVinci's Demons) star, with Sam Bain (Peep Show) writing and Steve Bendelack (Friday Night Dinner) directing the series.
Ill Behaviour introduces us to Joel (Geere), inspired to use any methods (conventional or otherwise) to save his friend Charlie (Riley), who announces that he is abandoning chemotherapy treatment for his cancer. The recently divorced Joel moves in with Charlie, who sets him up on a date with Nadia (Caplan), a doctor who also happens to be a raging alcoholic. Their connection is complicated by the newest revelation about Charlie's condition, sending the trio and their mutual friend Tess (Jessica Regan, Doctors) down a reckless path.
"Ill Behaviour is a brilliantly written series from the mind of Sam Bain which explores how far friends will go to protect each other, whilst blurring the lines of what's right and wrong. It features nuanced and honest performances from the cast across the board and we can't wait for audiences in the U.S. to see this hilarious comedy thriller." -Iain Morris and Damon Beesley, executive producers
Ill Behaviour is slated to premiere on Showtime on Monday, November 13 at 10:30 p.m. EST.
