Thomas Wayne is about to lead Alfred Pennyworth into a world of trouble.
In the first full trailer for EPIX’s Pennyworth, Alfred quits the army to start a security firm of his very own. His new business venture leads him to a gentleman’s club, which puts him in the crosshairs of a criminal conspiracy — all thanks to Thomas Wayne.
After witnessing his work, Thomas enlists Alfred to protect him from Bet Sykes and her criminal operation. However, the job takes a turn for the personal when Bet kidnaps Alfred’s girlfriend Esme and demands Thomas in exchange for her safe return. Alfred quickly realizes that the mission has become do or die, and not just his life is on the line.
