Fresh from the hit drama “Homeland,” Emmy-nominated Damian Lewis stars as Henry VIII opposite Mark Rylance as Thomas Cromwell in the much anticipated adaptation of Hilary Mantel's Booker Prize-winning novels. BAFTA-winning director Peter Kosminsky, known for “White Oleander,” directed this flagship drama that charts the meteoric rise of Cromwell in the Tudor court, from his lowly start as a blacksmith's son to Henry VIII's closest advisor.
