House Of Guiness Netflix Drama Preview

Dynamics within wealthy and powerful families is a recipe for a good drama series as shown by such family-centered series as Succession, Peaky Blinders, The Crown, House of the Dragon and many more. Netflix has one in the oven as well. This one has the working title of House of Guinness, which will tell the story of, you guessed it, the Guinness Family.

Netflix’s House of Guinness is created and written by Steven Knight who created Peaky Blinders, one of the most acclaimed TV series of the recent years. The episodes of House of Guinness will be directed by Tom Shankland (House of Cards, The Punisher, The Serpent) and Mounia Akl (Boiling Point, Costa Brava Lebanon).

Steven Knight commented in a press release:

“The Guinness dynasty is known the world over – wealth, poverty, power, influence, and great tragedy are all intertwined to create a rich tapestry of material to draw from. I’ve always been fascinated by their stories and am excited to bring the characters to life for the world to see.”

Anne Mensah, Vice-President Content at Netflix UK also gave a comment on the upcoming series:

“We are beyond thrilled to be working with Kudos and the incredible Steven Knight to bring the story of the Guinness Family to Netflix audiences. It has all the power of Peaky Blinders but the scale and the sweep of a true family saga. Set in the UK and the US, we cannot wait to see this realised.”

House of Guinness will be produced by Steven Knight, Karen Wilson, Elinor Day and Martin Haines for Kudos.
