Revolving around a group of strangers completing their community payback sentence in Bristol, England, The Offenders has added Dracula and The Square star Claes Bang to the show as Dean, a mysterious and terrifying London gang boss who is chasing a debt owed by the offenders.
Bang will star alongside Merchant, Christopher Walken, Rhianne Barreto, Gamba Cole, Darren Boyd, Clare Perkins, Eleanor Tomlinson, Richard E. Grant, Dolly Wells and Julia Davis.
Produced by Big Talk Productions and Merchant’s Four Eyes, The Offenders is shooting in Bristol. As previously revealed by Deadline, the show has secured a two-season order from the BBC and Amazon Studios. Amazon will stream the series in the U.S., Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
Danish actor Bang played Count Dracula in the BBC and Netflix’s 2020 reimagining of the classic Bram Stoker story, and also recently appeared in Paula van der Oest’s The Bay of Silence.
