Save Me

(Sky Atlantic)


Suranne Jones and Lennie James star in this hard-hitting drama, which lands in six parts next month.

James plays Nelson ‘Nelly’ Rowe, a local chancer, who is down on his luck as he desperately searches for his missing teenage daughter Jody, who he hasn’t seen for a decade.

As the news of the disappearance begins to affect Nelly’s life, his search takes him on a journey that will change the lives of everyone around him forever.

Jason Flemyng, Adrian Edmondson, Jessie Vining, Olive Gray and Stephen Graham co-star. 



(BBC Two)


Carey Mulligan leads this dark detective drama for BBC Two, written by hugely acclaimed playwright David Hare.

Set over four days, the drama begins with the shooting of pizza delivery driver, a death that initially seems innocuous, but turns out to be anything but, with repercussions for the government, the military and the church.  

Mulligan plays pregnant ex-pole vaulter turned police officer Kip Glaspie, who is determined to discover the truth

John Simm, Nicola Walker and Billie Piper are also in key roles.


Here And Now

(Sky Atlantic)


Alan Ball, creator of both Six Feet Under and True Blood, returns next month with this searing family drama, lead by Holly Hunter and Tim Robbins.

The story follows Robbin’s Greg Bishop, a philosophy professor and Hunter’s Audrey Black, his lawyer wife who are adoptive parents of three children and one biological child.

The progressive, seemingly happy family is not all that it seems, with some deep-seated rifts burning under the surface, rifts that won’t stay buried for long…




(BBC One)


BBC One’s tense drama gathers together an excellent cast, with the likes of Star Trek Beyond’s Lydia Wilson, Plebs' Joel Fry, Game Of Thrones' Tara Fitzgerald and No Offence leading lady Joanna Scanlan all onboard.

The six-parter follows Wilson’s Matilda Gray, a successful cellist about to set off on a concert tour of New York, whose life is thrown into chaos when her mother commits suicide, with no obvious reason as to why she would want to take her own life.

Determined to find out more, Gray, her best friend Hal and a stranger named Nick head off on a journey which leads her to a Welsh village haunted by its past…





Doctor Foster creator Mike Bartlett moves into medicine for his new drama, with a cast that includes Adrian Lester, John Simm, Lyndsey Marshal and Jemima Rooper.

Set in the trauma unit of a London hospital, the three-part drama follows Simm’s John Bowker, a grieving father who blames a high-achieving trauma consultant for the death of his teenage son.
