The HBO/BBC drama series GENTLEMAN JACK begins its eight-episode season MONDAY, APRIL 22 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT) on HBO. Created, written and co-directed by Sally Wainwright ("Happy Valley," "Last Tango in Halifax"), and starring BAFTA Award winner Suranne Jones ("Doctor Foster," "Save Me"), GENTLEMAN JACK tells the story of a woman who had a passion for life and a mind for business, and bucked society's expectations at every turn. The series will also be available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and partners' streaming platforms. GENTLEMAN JACK will air in the UK on BBC One this spring. Set in the complex, changing world of 1832 Halifax, West Yorkshire - the cradle of the evolving Industrial Revolution - GENTLEMAN JACK focuses on landowner Anne Lister, who is determined to transform the fate of her faded ancestral home, Shibden Hall, by reopening the coal mines and marrying well. The charismatic, single-minded, swashbuckling Lister - who dresses head-to-toe in black and charms her way into high society - has no intention of marrying a man. The story examines Lister's relationships with her family, servants, tenants and industrial rivals and, most importantly, would-be wife. Based in historical fact, the real-life Anne Lister's story was recorded in the four million words of her diaries, and the most intimate details of her life, once hidden in a secret code, have been decoded and revealed for the series.

I've seen a few promos for this show and really cant figure out what to make of it. the description above helps flesh it out but this seems a swing and a miss from a promotional standpoint. I had trouble telling if this was a dramady or straight up drama. An odd feel to it, you would think with all the eyes on GOT they would have done a better job with the promo for this one.

I watched through the first three episodes and this is fantastic. I love the tone with a great mix of seriousness and comedy. Some of the
breaking the fourth wall
moments have been hilarious.
