Best TV of June 2019: 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 June...

 

Big Little Lies

(Sky Atlantic)

 

For a long time, producers and the makers of Big Little Lies were adamant that there wouldn't be a second season of the show, but huge ratings and critical acclaim have changed their minds. 

Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, Laura Dern, Adam Scott and Zoë Kravitz all return to star. 

Set in the small town of Pirriwee, the show followed the lives of five mothers whose children are all in first grade at the local elementary school, all of whom become bound together at the show's end. 

For the second run, Meryl Streep will play Mary Louise Wright, the mother to the abusive Perry Wright, played in the first season by Alexander Skarsgard. 

Wright arrives looking for answers about what happened to her son, and, pretty soon, the bond between the five women begins to fray...

The show's second season will be directed by American Honey's Andrea Arnold, who replaces Dallas Buyers' Club director Jean-Marc Vallée behind the camera. 

 

 

Killing Eve

(BBC One)

 

At long last, weeks and weeks after it began in the US, the second season of the hit action drama comes to British screens. 

Doctor Foster breakout star Jodie Comer and Grey's Anatomy's Sandra Oh lead the way once again.

We follow Oh's Eve Polastri, a desk-bound MI5 officer, who is tasked with tracking down psychopathic assassin Villanelle, while both women become obsessed with each other. 

This time, we find Polastri on the hunt for a new serial killer named The Ghost, while Villanelle tries to recover from the ordeal of the first season. 

Emerald Fennell, is in charge of the second season, having taken over running the show from Phoebe Waller-Bridge

 

 

Black Monday

(Sky Atlantic)

 

A madcap take on a dark day in Wall Street history comes next month with an all-star cast.

Don Cheadle, Andrew Rannells, Regina Hall, and Paul Scheer all star, working for Happy Endings creator David Caspe.

The show takes us back to 1987 as we follow the employees of second-tier Wall Street trading firm The Jammer Group in the lead-up to Black Monday, the day the Dow Jones fell 508 points on a single day...

 

 

Wild Bill

(ITV1)

 

Rob Lowe headlines this new comedy-drama from ITV. 

Lowe plays high-flying US police chief Bill Hixon, who takes a job in Boston, Lincolnshire, hoping to be closer to his daughter Kelsey. 

Rachael Stirling, Angela Griffin, Tony Pitts, Bronwyn James and Anjli Mohindra co-star alongside Lowe in this new series.

 

 

Warrior

(Sky Atlantic)

 

This epic drama arrives next month.

Set in the brutal Tong Wars in San Francisco’s Chinatown in the late 1800s, this series is inspired by the writings of martial arts legend Bruce Lee.

We follow Ah Sahm, a martial arts prodigy who immigrates to San Francisco from China and becomes a hatchet man for the most powerful tong in Chinatown. 

Andrew Koji, Olivia Cheng, Jason Tobin, Dianne Doan, Kieran Bew, Dean Jagger and Christian May star, with Justin Lee one of the key creatives.
