George A Romero's Dawn of the Dead and Martin




Code 404 DVD & digital

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...




Dead Still Series 1

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.




Save Me Too and Save Me Series 1-2 Box Set

Lennie James makes a welcome return to our screens for the hugely anticipated second series of his gripping, gritty thriller Save Me. The hit Sky original drama is set to have audiences enthralled once again as Save Me Too hits our screens this April and makes its DVD debut alongside Save Me Series 1 & 2 DVD Box Set from Acorn Media International.

From the multi-award-winning producers of Line Of Duty this unflinching British drama is written by and stars the multi-talented Lennie James (The Walking Dead, Line of Duty) as our favourite yellow jacket wearing East End charmer Nelson "Nelly" Rowe, who will stop at nothing to save his loved ones.

The new series, which is set to air on Sky Atlantic and arrives on DVD and digital on 8 June 2020, sees the stunning ensemble cast of great British acting talent return, including Suranne Jones (Doctor Foster, Gentleman Jack), Stephen Graham (White House Farm, The Irishman), Susan Lynch (Killing Eve, Happy Valley), Kerry Godliman (Adult Material, After Life), Jason Flemyng (The Missing, A Christmas Carol) and Adrian Edmondson (Eastenders, Bancroft). They are joined by award-winning actor Lesley Manville (Mum, Phantom Thread), who takes a pivotal role in the thriller.




Flack Series 2 & 1-2 Box Set

Juggling with Saturday evening TV presenters harbouring dark secrets and an elderly environmental celebrity who may or may not have got a bit too hands on, as well as a romantic tryst between a high profile couple and a sporting superstar that resulted in a baby...It's all in a day's work for Robyn (Anna Paquin - True Blood, X-Men) and the Mills Paulson PR agency.

The queens of spin are back to help to fix those PR nightmares in W Channel's darkly comic drama Flack which returns after its critically acclaimed first series gripped audiences last year. Flack Series 2 arrives on DVD thanks to Acorn Media International, alongside the Flack Series 1 and 2 DVD Box Set on 1 June 2020.

Following the success of Scorsese's The Irishman, Hollywood star Anna Paquin returns to the small screen as Robyn, the high-flying publicity guru at Mills Paulson PR, who can make her clients' bad situations better with some expert spin, but when it comes to her own life things are never quite so straightforward...




Bulletproof Series 2 & Series 1 and 2 Box Set

Dive deep undercover with London's finest, Noel Clarke and Ashley Walters, as they return to the crime-filled streets in the second series of Bulletproof. Mixing drama, action and comedy in a fresh take on the police buddy genre, Bulletproof Series 2 arrives on DVD & digital 8 June and the Series 1 and 2 Box Set 15 June from Acorn Media International.

Acclaimed actor, writer and director Noel Clarke (Kidulthood, Star Trek: Into the Darkness) and chart-topping rapper turned respected actor Ashley Walters (Top Boy, Hustle), lead the action as two undercover cops tasked with bringing down the East End's toughest criminals in this Sky original series co-created by the pair.

Adrenalin-fuelled and packed with laughs as well as high-octane action, as all buddy-cop aficionados know, the key to its success is the bromance and banter between Officer Ronnie Bishop (Clarke) and Senior Officer Aaron Pike (Walters). By-the-book, family man Pike and raised-on-the-streets Bishop may come from different backgrounds, but they work brilliantly together...even if things don't always go to plan.




Spotlight on Sam Neill

In PR drama Flack starring Anna Paquin, Sam Neill appears as an ex-flame of formidable PR boss Caroline (Sophie Okonedo) who reappears in her life and causes a stir. Watch Series 2 and the 1-2 box set on DVD 8 June.

In And Then There Were None, the prestige BBC adaptation of the Agatha Christie classic where 8 strangers are invited to a remote island only to be hunted down by a mysterious murderer, Sam Neill plays General John Gordon Macarthur - a seemingly upstanding army man with a dark past. Watch it in full on Acorn TV now.

In intense Auckland-set award-winning noir mini-series Harry, Sam Neill plays DSS Jim Stockton, the police boss who oversees the investigations into a string of brutal murders that might have a personal link to recent widower and titular detective Harry Anglesea (Oscar Knightley). Watch it in full on Acorn TV now.




Balthazar Series 1

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.
