Emma Thompson Plays Outspoken Celebrity Turned Politician In BBC’s ‘Years & Years’

From award-winning writer Russell T Davies, Years And Years is a brand new six-part drama which follows the lives of a single family, the Lyons, over a period of fifteen years in a Britain rocked by unstable political, economic and technological change.

Emma Thompson stars as Vivienne Rook, an outspoken celebrity turned political figure whose controversial opinions divide the nation. Sounds like female Trump. Russell Tovey plays Daniel Lyons who’s about to tie the knot. Also starring are Rory Kinnear, T’Nia Miller, Jessica Hynes, Ruth Madeley and Anne Reid.

Years and Years arrives on BBC One later this year. Check out the trailer below.
