Sky have released the trailer for season 8 of Portrait Artist of the Year, which Philip will star in.
It has not yet been confirmed which episode Philip will feature but the season begins Wednesday 13th October on Sky Arts
Philip is to be a contestant on Richard Osman's House of Games.
House of Games is a British quiz show played on a weekly basis, with four celebrities playing on five consecutive days to win daily prizes and the weekly prize of being crowned as "House of Games" champion. Points are accrued depending on where each celebrity finishes on each day and the points are doubled on Friday's show.
Philip's stint on the show runs from Monday 13th to Friday 17th September. Each episode will air at 6pm on BBC Two and episodes will also be available on BBC iPlayer shortly after broadcast.
Philip is to star in an upcoming show on Sky History, charting the rise of the Tudor Dynasty.
The Royal Bastards: The Rise of The Tudors of The Tudors (working title) is a landmark Sky Original series that tells the incredible true story of one of England’s most powerful women, of whom you may never have heard, Lady Margaret Beaufort. She was half-sister by marriage of King Henry VI, mother of King Henry VII and grandmother of Henry VIII, who defied the greatest dynasties in medieval Britain – the Houses of York and Lancaster – to manoeuvre her son to the throne of England and consign the reign of the Plantagenets to history. Married aged just 12, pregnant at 13, widowed and a fugitive shortly after, her story is truly the real Game of Thrones.
Filmed on location in Lithuania and in the UK with three of Britain’s leading actors as our primary storytellers – Sheila Atim for the House of Lancaster (Queen Margaret of Anjou), Philip Glenister for the House of York (Richard of York), and ‘tba’ for Margaret Beaufort – this unique docudrama will tell the story of one of the most turbulent and bloody periods in English history from a unique perspective, through the eyes of its women.
Royal Bastards: Rise of The Tudors is directed by Julian Jones and produced by Bernadette Ross, with David Glover as Executive Producer. The Sky Original series is commissioned by Zai Bennett, Sky’s Managing Director of Content, Poppy Dixon, Director of Documentaries and Factual and Daniel Korn, Vice-President of Programming at A+E Networks UK.
Transmission expected: 15th November 2021 (3x60min episodes)
Philip will be one of the subjects of the new series of Sky Art's Portrait Artist of the Year which starts on 13th October.
Nine artists will compete in each of the eight heats (one of which will include Phil), and each heat winner will go on to the semi final to compete for a place in the final. The prize for the overall winner is a £10,000 commission to paint the esteemed Scottish-Italian classical solo violinist, Nicola Benedetti, which will be exhibited at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery.
Much-loved hosts Stephen Mangan and Joan Bakewell will return and brings with them a brand-new batch of amateur and professional artists as they battle it out to impress expert judges Tai Shan Schierenberg, Kathleen Soriano and Kate Bryan.
Philip is to star in the upcoming film, 'Instructions for a Teenage Armageddon' written by his Living the Dream co-star, Rosie Day.
Instructions for a Teenage Armageddon began life as a play - a one-girl show, written and starring Rosie and a book of the same name is scheduled to be released in October.
Not much else is known about the project so far, other than it will star Philip (as 'Dad'), Rosie (as 'Girl'), Amanda Abbington (as 'Mum') and Isabella Pappas (as 'Ella').
Philip is to star a short, independent film that highlights the challenges of living with bipolar disorder. The film was written by April Kelley and also stars her, as Rachel and Philip as Mark.
The project was made in collaboration with Bipolar UK and filmed back in January, under strict Covid protocols.
The film is being produced and distributed by Finite Films and TV and is coming soon.
