Kit Harington's 'Gunpowder' to Make US Debut on HBO

Thanks to the wide reach of Game of Thrones, the young discoveries who got their start in HBO's highest-rated show are sure to have robust careers in acting ahead of them.

"We are delighted to offer a platform for a project that is so close to Kit Harington's heart", says Kary Antholis, president, HBO Miniseries and CINEMAX Programming. "I can't think of a better place to do that than my home at HBO".

Harington, who plays Jon Snow on the cable network's biggest show, will star in Gunpowder, a three-part historical miniseries coming to America in December (it's now airing on BBC One in England). Harington and Daniel West are co-executive producers for Thriker Films. Harington stars as Catesby, who was a committed Catholic at a time when Protestant England persecuted Catholics relentlessly.

According to an HBO press release, "The first episode will debut Monday, Dec. 18 (10/9c), followed by the other parts the subsequent two nights-Tuesday, Dec. 19 and Wednesday, Dec. 20-at the same time". Harington plays Robert Catesby, the driving force behind the 1605 Gunpowder Plot in London. Kit Harington's next performance will see him back on the network that gave him his start, as his new miniseries Gunpowder will air on HBO at the end of the year.

"Gunpowder" also stars Mark Gatiss as the king's spymaster, Robert Cecil; Peter Mullan as a Jesuit priest; and Liv Tyler as Catesby's cousin, Anne Vaux.

Check out a teaser from the "Game of Thrones" actor's next project. Endemol Shine International distributes the series internationally.
