Sky Atlantic has unveiled a new teaser trailer for HBO’s eight-part drama Young Pope starring Jude Law.

Directed by Paolo Sorrentino, The Young Pope sees Jude Law play Lenny Belardo, aka Pius XIII, the first American Pope in history for the Vatican elected by the leaders of the Catholic Church. The most mysterious and contradictory figure of all turns out to be Pius XIII himself. Shrewd and naïve, old-fashioned and very modern, doubtful and resolute, ironic, pedantic, hurt and ruthless, Pius XIII tries to walk the long path of human loneliness to find a God for mankind. And for himself.

Also starring is award-winning actress Diane Keaton, Silvio Orlando, Scott Shepherd, Cécile de France, Javier Cámara, Ludivine Sagnier, Tony Bertorelli and James Cromwell.

The Young Pope is a joint production of Sky, HBO and Canal+ and will air on Sky Atlantic in the UK from October.
