Disney has announced that the new highly anticipated Original limited series “Under the Banner of Heaven,” from Academy Award-winner Dustin Lance Black starring Andrew Garfield and Daisy Edgar-Jones, will be coming to Disney+ under the Star banner in the UK and Ireland on the 27th July 2022. We’ve had it confirmed by Disney that the entire series will be available at once.
FX’s “Under the Banner of Heaven,” inspired by the true crime bestseller by Jon Krakauer, follows the events that led to the 1984 murder of Brenda Wright Lafferty (Daisy Edgar-Jones) and her baby daughter in a suburb in the Salt Lake Valley, Utah.
As Detective Jeb Pyre (Andrew Garfield) investigates events that transpired within the Lafferty family, he uncovers buried truths about the origins of the LDS religion and the violent consequences of unyielding faith. What Pyre, a devout Mormon, unearths leads him to question his own faith.
The seven-episode limited series also stars Sam Worthington, Denise Gough, Wyatt Russell, Billy Howle, Gil Birmingham, Adelaide Clemens, Rory Culkin, Seth Numrich, Chloe Pirrie and Sandra Seacat.
“Under the Banner of Heaven” is created by Academy Award-winner Dustin Lance Black, who also serves as showrunner and executive producer. Also serving as executive producers are Brian Grazer, Ron Howard and Anna Culp for Imagine Television; Jason Bateman and Michael Costigan of Aggregate Films; David Mackenzie and Gillian Berrie. “Under the Banner of Heaven” is produced by FX Productions.
