Madden will play one of the lead roles of Peter, a devout priest with a past.
After his role as a Stark sibling on Game of Thrones Madden also starred in the mini-series Klondike and the live-action Cinderella film. He also starred in Branagh Theatre’s stage production of Romeo and Juliet as Romeo opposite Lily James.
The show will be executive produced and written by Matt Charman and produced by Andy Harries and Lila Rawlings ,with Kevin MacDonald set to direct.
