Based on the director's 2019 film of the same name, The Gentlemen will begin streaming on March 7.
The eight-episode series stars The White Lotus actor Theo James as protagonist Eddie Horniman, who inherits a large estate after his father's sudden death and finds himself involved in criminal affairs.
Eddie is stunned when he finds out that his dad's 15,000-acre estate will go to him rather than to his older brother Freddy (I Hate Suzie's Daniel Ings), but he rises to the occasion and contends with the unexpected responsibilities coming with the property, which is part of Mickey Pearson's weed-growing empire.
The series also stars Kaya Scodelario as Susie Glass, Lady Chatterley's Lover star Joely Richardson as Lady Sabrina, Vinnie Jones as Geoff Seacombe and Better Call Saul's Giancarlo Esposito as Uncle Stan.
Cast is rounded out by Max Beesley, Chanel Cresswell, Michael Vu, Jasmine Blackborow, Harry Goodwins, Dar Salim, Pearce Quigley, Ruby Sear, Peter Serafinowicz, Ray Winstone and Guz Khan in supporting roles.
"The Gentlemen sees Eddie Horniman (Theo James) unexpectedly inherit his father's sizeable country estate — only to discover it's part of a cannabis empire," the official synopsis reads.
"Moreover, a host of unsavoury characters from Britain's criminal underworld want a piece of the operation.
"Determined to extricate his family from their clutches, Eddie tries to play the gangsters at their own game. However, as he gets sucked into the world of criminality, he begins to find a taste for it."
The Gentlemen becomes available to stream on Netflix on March 7.
