Best TV of August 2021: hmv.com previews five of the best shows...

hmv.com previews five of the most exciting TV dramas that will be coming to your screens in August...

 

Britannia

(Sky Atlantic)

 

The third season of Jez Butterworth's madcap medieval drama arrives towards the end of August. 

David Morrissey, Mackenzie Crook, Eleanor Worthington-Cox, Sophie Okonedo, Julian Rhind-Tutt and Zoë Wanamaker star in the series, which will run across eight episodes.

Set in a world of mythic Celtic tribes, psychedelic druids and terrifying Romans, series three of the show will see Worthington-Cox's Cait try to build a rebel alliance with a group of misfits, with grave, grave consequences...

 

Pose

(BBC One)

 

The third and final series of the stylish drama arrives in the coming weeks. 

The show follows the African-American and Latino ball culture world in New York, beginning in 1987 and going all the way through to 1994.

The final season begins in 1994, with MJ Rodriguez's Blanca focusing on balancing her life as a nurse, a mother and present partner to Christopher, her new love who works in the same hospital as hers, while the House of Evangelista begins its re-assembly. 

Dominique Jackson, Billy Porter, Indya Moore, Ryan Jamaal Swain and Charlayne Woodard all return to star in this eight-episode run.

 

The White Lotus

(Sky Atlantic)

 

Alexandria Daddario, Murray Bartlett, Connie Britton, Jennifer Coolidge and Jake Lacy lead this quirky series.

Set in an idyllic Hawaiian resort, we follow the various hotel guests over the span of a week as they relax and rejuvenate in paradise.

But with each passing day, a darker complexity emerges in these picture-perfect travellers, the hotel’s employees and the place itself...

 

Black Monday

(Sky Comedy)

 

The third run of the stylish comedy returns next month. 

Black Monday follows a group of outsiders who took on the old-boys club of Wall Street and ended up crashing the world's largest financial system in absolutely outrageous style. 

In this new run, the cast find themselves in the 1990s and trying to rebuild their lives with predictable hilarious consequences. 

Don Cheadle, Andrew Rannells, Regina Hall, Paul Scheer and Casey Wilson are all back to star.

 

The Equalizer

(Sky Witness)

 

After the success of the two Denzel Washington-led movies, the hit action series gets a TV spin-off, this time with Queen Latifah leading the way. 

Latifah plays Robyn McCall, a former operative of "the Company", an organization that conducts illegal operations for the U.S. government.

Now on her own, McCall begins acting as a vigilante, righting wrongs and defending those who cannot defend themselves.

Starring alongside Latifah are Tory Kittles, Adam Goldberg, Liza Lapira, Laya DeLeon Hayes, Lorraine Toussaint and Chris Noth. 

A second series has already been confirmed.
