The BBC is set to air Trust, a new series starring Donald Sutherland.

Inspired by actual events, Trust tells the story of the trials and triumphs of one of America’s wealthiest, the Gettys. The series begins in 1973 with the kidnapping of John Paul Getty III, an heir to the Getty oil fortune, by the Italian mafia in Rome. Donald Sutherland plays the Getty patriarch, with Harris Dickinson starring as his grandson. Michael Esper and Hilary Swank star as J. Paul Getty Jr. and his wife Gail. Brendan Fraser, Anna Chancellor, Norbert Leo Butz, Charlotte Riley and Luca Marinelli co-star.

Trust was created by Simon Beaufoy and executive produced by Danny Boyle, Beaufoy and Christian Colson, with Boyle directing the first three episodes.

Patrick Holland, Controller of BBC Two, said, “I am tremendously excited that Trust is coming to BBC Two. The series has the unique scale, singular vision and extraordinary swagger that only Danny Boyle, Simon Beaufoy and Christian Colson can bring.”

Sue Deeks, Head of BBC Programme Acquisition, added, “Trust is bold storytelling, made with verve, style and ambition. The Getty family have captured the public’s imagination like few others, and there is no better team to reimagine their story for television than the award-winning trio of Danny Boyle, Simon Beaufoy and Christian Colson. We’re very excited to bring this compelling new series to BBC Two.”
