Earlier this morning Jack Bannon was cast as Alfred, and now Warner Bros. has announced that Ben Aldridge will play Thomas Wayne in Pennyworth. The new series is coming to EPIX and is created by Gotham’s Bruno Heller and Danny Cannon.

In Pennyworth, Thomas Wayne is a young, fresh-faced billionaire hailing from the east coast of the United States. Confident and extremely disciplined, this young aristocrat meets an unlikely business partner in Alfred Pennyworth.

The 10-episode, one-hour drama series is based on DC characters created by Bob Kane with Bill Finger. It follows Bruce Wayne’s legendary butler, Alfred Pennyworth, a former British SAS soldier in his 20s, who forms a security company and goes to work with a young billionaire Thomas Wayne, who’s not yet Bruce’s father, in 1960s London.

Production on the series will begin Monday, October 22, 2018, at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden in the UK.
