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

 

Sharp Objects

(Sky Atlantic)

 

Amy Adams leads this lavish HBO adaptation of Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn's bestselling novel. 

Adams plays Camille Preaker, who is rebuilding her life in Chicago and now working as a crime reporter. Previously discharged from a psychiatric hospital after years of self-harming, Preaker is forced to return to her hometown of Wind Gap, Missouri, to investigate the murders of two young girls. 

Her return forces her to reunite with her controlling mother and her troublesome half-sister Amma, bringing plenty of personal details to the surface once again. 

Starring alongside Adams are Patricia Clarkson, Eliza Scanlen, Elizabeth Perkins, Madison Davenport, Chris Messina and Matt Craven.

Jean-Marc Vallée, director of The Dallas Buyers' Club and huge hit Big Little Lies, takes charge of each of the eight episodes.

 

 

Stan Lee’s Lucky Man

(Sky One)


James Nesbitt returns to spearhead a third run of the hit Sky One series. 

Nesbitt plays DI Harry Clayton, a detective in Central London's Murder Squad suffering from an addiction to gambling who becomes the recipient of an ancient bracelet that it gives him supernatural luck. 

The new season takes Clayton to Hong Kong and into the path of his greatest nemesis yet, the mysterious Blake, played by Spooks’ Rupert Penry-Jones. The Replacement’s Neve McIntosh also has a key role in the new eight-episode run.

S.W.A.T

(Sky One)

 

Criminal Minds’ mainman Shemar Moore leads the way in this explosive new series, a reboot of the classic 1970s action series of the same name.

Moore plays Sergeant II Daniel "Hondo" Harrelson, the newly promoted team leader of a highly-trained unit that's the last stop for solving crimes in Los Angeles.

Spectre's Stephanie Sigman, Only The Brave's Alex Russell and Quantico's David Lim are also in key roles.

 

 

 

Picnic At Hanging Rock

(BBC Two)

 

Natalie Dormer stars in this dark new series. 

The six-parter is an adaptation of Joan Lindsay's 1967 novel of the same name about a group of schoolgirls who, while on an outing to Australian tourist trap Hanging Rock, mysteriously disappear.

Lily Sullivan, currently starring in the TV take on Romper Stomper, and Orange is the New Black's Yael Stone are among Dormer's co-stars.  

 

 

Harrow

(Alibi)

 

Ioan Gruffudd leads this crime drama about the life and times of Doctor Daniel Harrow, a forensic pathologist with a total disregard for authority and an unfailing empathy for the dead, a disposition that gives him the edge in the most peculiar of cases...

Top Of The Lake's Mirrah Foulkes and Remy Hi, who you'll next see in lavish comedy Crazy Rich Asians, are among the supporting cast for this 10-part first season.
