SoHo premieres a new fantasy drama TV series based on Philip Pullman’s beloved trilogy that stays true to the heart of the books for existing fans, while bringing to life this modern masterpiece of imaginative fiction for those new to the story.
HBO’s new hit “His Dark Materials” takes place in an alternate world, both like and unlike our own, where humans and their trusted daemons are ruled by the all-powerful Magisterium, which suppresses knowledge that challenges its ideas as “heretical” – particularly around a mysterious substance known as Dust and the theory that multiple worlds exist.
Over the course of the series, as she journeys through the worlds, including our own, Lyra encounters extraordinary beings and dangerous secrets, with the fate of both the living, and the dead, at stake.
The ensemble cast includes: Dafne Keen (Logan, The Refugees) as Lyra Belacqua; Ruth Wilson (Golden Globe winner for The Affair) as Mrs. Coulter; Lin-Manuel Miranda (Tony Award winner for “Hamilton”) as the adventurer Lee Scoresby; James McAvoy (Golden Globe nominee for Atonement) as Lord Asriel; Clarke Peters (HBO’s The Wire and Treme) as The Master of Jordan College; Lewin Lloyd (The Aeronauts) as Lyra’s missing friend Roger Parslow; James Cosmo as Farder Coram and Anne-Marie Duff as Ma Costa, who are part of the boat-dwelling Gyptian community.
