AcornTV Original morbid crime comedy Dead Still arrives from 29 June 2020

A brand-new Acorn TV Original is ready for its close up; DEAD STILL, a morbidly comic period drama, like never before seen, gets its UK premiere on Acorn TV this summer.

Offering a contemporary take on the genre, we're transported to Victorian Dublin, in the heyday of the macabre practice of post-mortem photography, taking portrait photos of the recently deceased. This six-part series follows a renowned memorial photographer, played by accomplished actor Michael Smiley (Luther, Wire in the Blood), who is drawn into an investigation of a series of suspicious deaths.

After an unfortunate accident and waning patronage take their toll, Brock Blennerhasset (Smiley) must take on his would-be actress niece, Nancy Vickers (O'Higgins), and a new, eager assistant and former grave-digger, Conall Molloy (Logan) to help keep his macabre memorial photography business afloat. Meanwhile, Detective Frederick Regan (O'Hare) of the Dublin Metropolitan Police is following a trail of bodies, closing in on a murderer who appears to be cashing in on the sordid market for 'snuff' imagery. Unfortunately, the bodies seem to lead to Blennerhasset's door... so with his trusty assistants at hand, they take it upon themselves to track down the true perpetrator before he strikes again.

'Juicy costume drama...so recommended'

Stephen Graham & Daniel Mays' sci-fi buddy-cop comedy Code 404 comes to DVD & digital 6 July

British acting greats Stephen Graham and Daniel Mays join forces as the ultimate dream team, taking the buddy cop genre to another dimension in hilarious new sci-fi mash-up Sky Original comedy series Code 404, which arrives on DVD and digital 6 July 2020 from Acorn Media International.

Detective Inspectors DI John Major (Mays - Temple, Good Omens) and DI Roy Carver (Graham - Line of Duty, The Irishman) are the top crime fighting duo in the Met's Special Investigation Unit, but when an undercover sting goes horribly wrong, Major is gunned down on the job and killed. How will the SIU function without him? Well, it doesn't have to.

As an 'asset' considered too valuable to lose, his body is fast-tracked into an experimental Artificial Intelligence project to bring him back from the dead. The only problem is, Major 2.0 may look like and sound like the original, but something has been lost in translation - quite a lot actually. His arrogant demeanour and gung-ho approach remain, but his crimefighting instincts have completely deserted him...

'A hilarious fresh twist...what Line of Duty would be like if it were a comedy...you'll love this'

★★★★

'Fast-paced, bright and breezy...a most welcome splurge of pure escapism'

Parisian procedural BALTHAZAR Series 1 starring Tomer Sisley arrives exclusively on AcornTV 25 May

Acclaimed actor director and comedian Tomer Sisley (Messiah, The Heir Apparent: Largo Winch) takes the titular lead in BALTHAZAR, one of France's highest rated dramas in 2018, reaching some six million plus viewers on TF1. Now Series 1 of this critically acclaimed, gripping drama will make its UK Premiere on Acorn TV on Monday, May 25.

Drawing comparisons to The Mentalist and Bones, this must-see drama, set in Paris, follows the handsome, intelligent and quick-witted forensic pathologist Raphael Balthazar, who can make the dead speak like no one else.

Assisting on disturbing, violent murder investigations, Balthazar works in his own irreverent way, defying convention, which causes problems for the new, no-nonsense police commander Helene Bach (Helene de Fougerolles, Le Secret d'Elise, VA Savoir), who must collaborate with him on some of the most complicated cases the force have to handle.

Using his superlative skills alongside the most advanced technology, Balthazar must help uncover evidence that the police can't glean from a crime scene. Determined to uncover the truth at any cost, he speaks to the dead during the autopsies and they in turn respond to him.

'A thrilling ride...not one you'll want to miss'
