Sky has released the first extended trailer for 'The Young Pope', its forthcoming drama starring Jude Law.
Law plays Lenny Belardo, aka Pius XIII, the first American Pope in history. The young and charming Belardo seems destined to woo the media, but he turns out to be a contradictory figure: shrewd and naive at the same time, old-fashioned and yet very modern.
But one thing is for sure: young Belardo is ruthless. The 10-part series follows him as he seeks a God for mankind, and for himself.
From the trailer, it seems like Belardo makes himself a few enemies along the way.
The series is a joint production between Sky, HBO and Canal+, and is directed by Oscar-winner Paolo Sorrentino ('Youth'). It also features Diane Keaton, Silvio Orlando, Scott Shepherd, Cecile de France, and Javier Camara.
