Anna Chancellor & James Fleet Join BBC America’s ‘The Watch’


Anna Chancellor (Pennyworth) and James Fleet (Outlander) have been added to the cast of BBC America’s The Watch.

Based from the fantasy comic series Discworld by Sir Terry Pratchett, Chancellor will play Lord Vetinari. 

Read below for more information about the series:

Chancellor stars as Lord Vetinari, The Patrician of Ankh-Morpork, and architect of the city’s normalized wrongness and ramshackle system of governance, while Fleet stars as The Archchancellor, wizard, magical advisor, and the Head of the Unseen University.

Set in the fictional city of Ankh-Morpork, where crime has been legalized, The Watch is a “punk rock” drama. The eight-part series centers on a group of misfit cops as they rise up from decades of helplessness to save their corrupt city from catastrophe.
