It comes after Stephen was cast in a 12-part drama about the illegal boxing world of east London in the 1850s by Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight last month.
A Thousand Blows will feature the Help actor as veteran boxer Sugar Goodson, the series focusing on a gang of female fighters during the Industrial Revolution.
Steven and Stephen are good friends after Graham starred in Peaky Blinders sixth and final season as the character Hayden Stagg.

The drama A Thousand Blows will follow two friends Hezekiah and Alec as they find themselves at the center of the city’s underground boxing scene, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
A synopsis reads: “The thrilling series follows Hezekiah and Alec, two best friends from Jamaica who find themselves thrust into the vibrant and violent melting pot of post-industrial revolution in London’s East End.
‘Lured into the criminal underbelly of the thriving boxing scene, Hezekiah meets Mary Carr, leader of the Forty Elephants – London’s notorious all-female gang – as they fight for survival on the streets.

“As Hezekiah hones his new skills, he comes up against Sugar Goodson, a seasoned and dangerous boxer played by Stephen Graham, and the two are soon locked in an intense rivalry that spills far beyond the ring.”
The new series will premiere on Disney+ globally, Star+ in Latin America, and Hulu in the United States.
Graham, who is also the project’s executive producer, said it was a “privilege” to play Henry “Sugar” Goodson, an amateur boxer who died in 1917.

He explained: “To be able to work again with Steve and the talented team of writers we have on this project is truly wonderful, and telling the stories of these incredible characters during this time in London is a joy.
“In addition to having the privilege of bringing the role of Sugar Goodson to life, I’m also extremely proud that Matriarch is co-producing this show while helping to create opportunities for those in front of and behind the camera, instilling the ethics of training in production that would otherwise be difficult for some to pursue a career.
Meanwhile, Steven Knight said, “I’m really excited to be working on this project with Stephen and the very talented production team and group of writers.
“I always love to dive into the untold story, and it’s a story that really deserves to be told. We’re recreating an incredible world and telling a remarkable true story.
Disney+ has yet to share a release date for the upcoming drama.
Stephen was last seen in the pandemic drama Help alongside Jodie Comer – for which he won a BAFTA TV Award in May, as well as in the film Boiling Point.
