Will is an American television drama series that premiered on TNT in July 2017. The show is set in 16th century London and follows the famous playwright William Shakespeare during his early days as a struggling writer. Laurie Davidson plays the lead role of Shakespeare, who is portrayed as a young and ambitious artist, determined to make a name for himself in the theater world. The series explores his journey from obscurity to becoming a celebrated author that changed the world of theater forever.

The show also features Olivia DeJonge who plays the role of Alice Burbage, the daughter of James Burbage, who is the owner of the first public theater in London. Alice is a talented actress, a rebel at heart, and a feminist who challenges the patriarchal norms of her time. The relationship between Shakespeare and Alice forms one of the integral plotlines of the series. The show also stars Ewen Bremner as Richard Topcliffe, the main antagonist of the series, who is tasked with rooting out Catholic conspirators in London. Topcliffe is a ruthless and sadistic man, who is willing to go to any lengths to achieve his goals.

Will is a visually stunning series that transports viewers to the 16th century London with its grandiose production design and a rich array of costumes that evoke the era. The show offers a thrilling combination of historical drama, literary romance, and a coming-of-age story that keeps viewers engaged throughout the series. The series also offers a glimpse into the world of theater during the Elizabethan era, which was a time of great artistic experimentation, and emergence of new literary forms.

The show also features a strong cast of supporting characters, played by talented actors, who bring depth and complexity to the series. Some of the notable characters include Shakespeare's friend and fellow writer Christopher Marlowe, played by Jamie Campbell Bower, who is depicted as a libertine and a free spirit. The series also features the historical figure of Queen Elizabeth I, played by Kate Burton, who is portrayed as a patron of the arts, and an enigmatic ruler who commands respect and awe from her subjects.

One of the most striking aspects of the series is the way it seamlessly blends historical fact and fiction to create a compelling narrative. The series takes some creative liberties with the historical record, such as portraying Shakespeare as a punk rock star-like figure, who rebels against the establishment with his writing. However, the show also stays true to the elements of the era, such as the religious conflicts, the power struggles, and the gender dynamics of the time.

Another highlight of the series is its score, composed by Jeff Russo, which incorporates elements of rock music, hip hop, and electronic sounds, to create a unique and contemporary sonic landscape that complements the visual style of the show. The music adds an additional layer of excitement and energy to the series, and enhances the emotional impact of the scenes.

Overall, Will is an excellent series that offers an entertaining and provocative portrayal of one of the greatest writers in history. The series provides a fresh and dynamic take on Shakespeare that is sure to engage audiences, regardless of their familiarity with his works. The show offers a perfect blend of drama, romance, and adventure, with a cast of memorable characters, gorgeous visuals, and a killer soundtrack. It is a must-watch for anyone who loves historical fiction and Shakespearean drama.

Will is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (51 episodes). The series first aired on July 10, 2017.
