Chivalry is a new Channel 4 comedy-drama series that promises to unabashedly explore the film and television industry’s complex state of gender politics in the #MeToo era.

According to an official synopsis, “Chivalry is a fresh new look on gender politics and romance, and asks the question: can one build and sustain a successful, relevant career in Hollywood without sacrificing authenticity?

“Chivalry grants the audience permission to laugh while asking complex questions that we as a society often find hard to discuss.”

In addition to an all-star main cast, there will also be some special guest cameos over the course of the six episodes, including one from Paul Rudd (Avengers: Endgame, Living With Yourself), Peter Mullan (Cursed) and Amy Landecker (Transparent).

Steve Coogan

Steve Coogan plays Cameron O’Neill, the producer behind A Little Death whose creative side reawakens after spending time with Bobby.

The series follows Cameron as he tries to stay relevant at a time when cancel-culture can end a career instantly.

In addition to starring in the upcoming series, both Sarah Solemani and Steve Coogan also serve as writers for the Channel 4 dramedy.

Outside of Chivalry, Coogan is best known for his role as the titular character in the Alan Partridge franchise. He has also starred in films including Philomena and Irreplaceable You, and will appear in ITV’s upcoming mini-series Stephen .

Wanda Sykes

Emmy award-winning actress Wanda Sykes joins the main cast as Jean Shrill, a shrewd studio executive trying to keep her empire intact in the face of the #MeToo era.

Sykes is a familiar face on both the small and big screen, starring in TV series and films including The Upshaws, Black-ish and Bad Moms.

Sienna Miller

Sienna Miller plays Lark, A Little Death’s dynamic leading lady who’s no stranger to The Hollywood Boys’ Club.

Miller’s past film and TV credits include 21 Bridges, GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra and American Sniper.

Lolly Adefope

British stand-up comedian Lolly Adefope is Ama, Cameron’s ambitious new assistant who’s hungry for success and out to progress in her career as quickly as possible.

Though Adefope is best known for her comedy, she has also starred in a wide range of film and TV series since 2015, including The Spy Who Dumped Me, Ghosts and This Time with Alan Partridge alongside Chivalry co-star Steve Coogan.

Robert Lonsdale

Robert Lonsdale plays Chivalry’s Rick, the editor of A Little Death who desperately tries to keep the movie on track while often finding himself caught in the middle of Bobby and Cameron’s creative differences.

Lonsdale is known for his roles in TV series including Vera, Chewing Gum and Holby City.

Adjani Salmon

Rounding out the Chivalry cast is Adjani Salmon as Aston, Bobby’s enduringly patient and generous husband who moves to California with his wife after a failed start-up leaves him down on his luck and in search of a new opportunity.

Salmon is predominantly known for Dreaming Whilst Black, a nine-part comedy web series and subsequent TV movie he wrote, directed, produced and starred in.
