Bradley Whitford has been tapped for a key role opposite Anna Paquin in FlackPop TV’s new series about the world of high-stakes, celebrity-driven public relations.

Directed by the Oscar-nominated Peter Cattaneo, Flack is a one-hour dramedy starring Paquin as Robyn, an American PR executive living in London who’s an expert at her craft but a complete self-saboteur when it comes to her personal life.

Whitford will play Calvin Cooper, an American movie star living in England working in theatre. The show is a co-production between Pop TV and British multichannel broadcaster UKTV.

“We’re so excited to welcome such an enormous talent like Bradley into the Flack family, and without giving too much away, can’t wait to see how his fervent character causes a lot of complications for Anna to deal with in a highly restricted, regulated locale,” said Justin Rosenblatt, EVP Original Programming, Pop.

The cast of Flack includes Paquin, Sophie Okonedo, Genevieve Angelson, Lydia Wilson, Rebecca Benson, Arinzé Kene, Marc Warren and Rufus Jones.

Whitford, a multi-Emmy Award winning actor, most recently co-starred in two best picture Oscar-nominated films, Steven Spielberg’s The Post alongside Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks; and Jordan Peele’s Get Out.

Bradley will next be seen in the second season of Hulu’s Emmy-winning series The Handmaid’s Tale in a major recurring role. He is currently filming National Geographic’s limited series Valley of the Boom, about the 90’s tech boom, and will be seen in the crime drama The Destroyer, alongside Sebastian Stan and Nicole Kidman in addition to the upcoming installment of the Godzilla MonsterVerse. Whitford is reppted by ICM Partners and Greenlight Management.
