actor robbie coltrane has a challenging new tv role lined up as a comedian accused of historic sex abuse.

“this is england” writer jack thorne’s new channel 4 series “national treasure” will dramatise the fallout of a yewtree-style investigation, reported digital spy.

The four-part national treasure examines the fall of fictional comedian paul finchley, with adrian edmondson in talks to play finchley’s on-stage partner.
Finchley’s life comes crashing down when police come to his door with accusations of sexual assault dating back to the 1970s.

“what i’ve always loved about channel 4 is that it’s a place to discuss big ideas. National treasure is a piece about doubt, about the smell of abuse, about how we as a society live in yewtree times,” writer jack thorne said.

“paul is a man who could be innocent or guilty. We’re going to examine him from all sides and ask that big question – how well do we know the people closest to us?”
coltrane is famous for his recurring roles in the james bond and harry potter films, as well as the hit tv series “cracker”.

“national treasure” is expected to debut on channel 4 later in 2016.

Happy Holidays!!!
