Claes Bang Joins Stephen Merchant’s The Offenders

News: New TV Comedy For Stephen Merchant
Claes 'Dracula' Bang is set to join the cast of Stephen Merchant’s The Offenders, the new six-part series coming to BBC One and Amazon Prime Video.

Claes joins the impressive cast alongside Academy Award winning actor Christopher Walken in his first lead British television role, writer and director Stephen Merchant, with Rhianne Barreto, Gamba Cole, Darren Boyd, Clare Perkins, Eleanor Tomlinson, Dolly Well, Richard E. Grant, Dolly Wells and Julia Davis. 

Claes Bang plays The Dean, a mysterious and terrifying London gang boss the Offenders are unlucky enough to find themselves in debt to.

The Offenders follows seven strangers from different walks of life forced together to complete a Community Payback sentence in Bristol. At first, they seem like archetypes we can easily pigeonhole, but gradually we see behind their façades, understand their hidden depths and what made them the people they are today. We are reminded that no one is all good or all bad. Everyone has a story.

As their unlikely new friendships intersect with their complicated private lives, The Offenders must unite to protect one of their own from Bristol’s most dangerous criminal gang. The show is part crime thriller, character study, and a state-of-the-nation commentary - with humour and heart.

The series is a co-production between the BBC and Amazon Studios, and is produced by Big Talk with Stephen Merchant’s Four Eyes. Big Talk is part of ITV Studios. Global distribution is handled by BBC Studios

The Offenders is currently filming in Bristol, and will premiere on BBC One and BBC iPlayer in the UK, and on Amazon Prime Video in the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
