TV

EXCLUSIVE: Sky has found its Mozart‘s wife for Joe Barton‘s upcoming Amadeus series about the world’s most famous composer.

Gabrielle Creevy, who has just wrapped Barton’s Black Doves series for Netflix, will star as Constance opposite Will Sharpe’s Mozart. Constance was married to Mozart from 1782 and 1791 and was also a trained Austrian singer. She and Mozart had six children, four of whom died in infancy. Upon Mozart’s death in 1791, she was left saddled with debts.

Creevy is an up-and-coming British actor who played the lead in the BBC and Hulu’s mental health dramedy In My Skin, which beat the likes of Vigil and Unforgotten to the best drama series BAFTA at the 2022 awards. She is starring alongside A-listers Keira Knightley and Ben Whishaw in Black Doves and is leading Starz’ adaptation of Lisa Taddeo’s Three Women opposite Shailene Woodley.

Also starring Paul Bettany as composer Antonio Salieri, Amadeus is a playful reimagining of the musical genuis’s life based on Peter Shaffer’s play. Set within the musical hub of bustling Vienna at the end of the 18th century, it follows the 25-year-old titular character as he arrives in the city no longer a child and determined to carve his own path.

Sharpe is reuniting with Giri/Haji writer Barton and director Julian Farino for the show that comes from Patrick Melrose producer Two Cities Television in association with Sky Studios. Deadline revealed the development project in 2022.

Amadeus is EP’d by Paul Gilbert, Megan Spanjian, Michael Jackson (Patrick Melrose) and Stephen Wright (Blue Lights). Farino (Giri/Haji) and Alice Seabright (Chloe, Sex Education) will direct. Barton, Sharpe and Farino also serve as EPs. NBCUniversal Global TV Distribution handles international sales.
