Tom Butterworth’s Britannia Airs on Sky

Jan 23, 2018

Britannia, co-created and written by Tom Butterworth for Sky Atlantic, airs January 18th on Sky Atlantic.

Set in AD 43, the ten-part British historical period-drama follows ancient Rome's conquest of the Celts in the British Isles —a mysterious land ruled by wild warrior women and powerful druids who can channel the powerful forces of the underworld.

Tom Butterworth is a writer for film and television. His most recent credits include Fortitude for Fifty Fathoms and Sky Atlantic and the major new series Tin Star for Kudos and Sky. Tom is currently developing an original drama, The Few, with Chris Hurford for Ecosse.
