Girls star Allison Williams is set to guest star opposite Benedict Cumberbatch’s upcoming five-part limited series, PATRICK MELROSE.

A co-production of Showtime and Sky Atlantic, the series is based on Patrick Melrose series of semi-autobiographical novels written by Edward St. Aubyn. David Nicholls is writing the TV adaption.

MELROSE skewers the upper class as it tracks the protagonist’s harrowing odyssey from a deeply traumatic childhood through adult substance abuse, and, ultimately, toward recovery.

Williams will play Marianne, an acquaintance that Patrick (Cumberbatch) encounters during his playboy years in New York. She joins the previously announced Jennifer Jason Leigh, Hugo Weaving and Anna Madeley.
