Julia Stiles (The Bourne movies) leads an international all-star cast in this high-end drama made for Sky Atlantic. Created by Academy Award-winning writer Neil Jordan (The Borgias, The Crying Game), the eight-part thriller follows the moral descent of smart and resourceful art curator Georgina Clios (Stiles), who discovers her vast fortune is tainted by dishonesty, double-dealing and murder when her billionaire husband is killed in a mysterious explosion on board a Russian oligarch’s mega-yacht.

As she sets out to uncover what happened, stark truths about her husband emerge and she is led deep into the dark world of the Riviera’s super-rich. There, she must learn to adapt, survive and ultimately thrive if she is to save the Clios family and fortune from both its enemies and itself.

Directed by Philipp Kadelbach (Generation War, SS-GB) and Damon Thomas (Penny Dreadful), this lavish and cinematic drama also stars Adrian Lester (Undercover, London Spy), Lena Olin (Vinyl), Dimitri Leonidas (The Monuments Men), Phil Davis (Poldark, Sherlock), Iwan Rheon (Game of Thrones), Anthony LaPaglia (Without a Trace), Nick Rowe (Da Vinci’s Demons), Amr Waked (Spiral) and Roxane Duran (The White Ribbon).

Copper’s End (ITV 1971, Bill Owen, Josephine Tewson)

Published

Sitcom Coppers End was very much from the Will Hay  (and Ask A Policeman in particular) school of comedy; When the series began the boys at the station led by Sergeant Stan Short, had the art of doing nothing down to a tee, so much so that they were even able to hire out their squad car for all manner of weddings, driving lessons and even stock car racing. All until the arrival of the super efficient W.P.S. Penny Pringle that is.
