George A Romero's Dawn of the Dead and Martin




Flack Series One

Meet Robyn, a sharp and witty high-flying publicity guru who can make her clients' bad situations better with some expert spin, but when it comes to her own life things aren't quite so straightforward.

Hollywood star Anna Paquin (The Piano, True Blood, X-Men) takes the lead in Flack, a brand-new darkly comedic drama that delves deep into the wild world of high stakes public relations. Currently airing on W Channel it's set arrive on DVD from Acorn Media International on 13 May 2019.

Robyn is a senior publicist at Mills Paulson PR, under the tyrannical, but awe-inspiring boss Caroline, played with relish by Sophie Okonedo (Hotel Rwanda, Wanderlust, Chimerica). Then there's the rest of the team: the tirelessly hedonistic yet brilliant PR powerhouse Eve, in a hilarious turn by Requiem's Lydia Wilson, and the endlessly willing intern, Melody (Rebecca Benson - Game of Thrones).




Warren Series One

TV favourite Martin Clunes returns to our screens as another man behaving badly: Warren, a hilariously pedantic driving instructor who thinks the world is against him, in prime time sitcom currently airing on BBC One and coming to DVD and digital courtesy of Acorn Media International.

Created and written by upcoming British writing team Jimmy Donny Cosgrove and Paul McKenna (no, not that one), this original six part comedy drama centres around Warren Thompson, who suddenly finds himself in his mid-50s, forced to up sticks from the south to Preston when his partner Anne's (Lisa Millett - Robin Hood, Peterloo) father falls ill. Not blessed with patience, empathy, or any kind of paternal instinct whatsoever, cantankerous, blunt and grumpy, he just about tolerates his students, not to mention the two teenage stepsons he never wanted.

To put it delicately, Warren's naturally difficult personality means he's constantly finding himself in sticky situations. Set in his ways, he's happy with a clean house, a neat garden, and a nice cup of tea...but always seems to end up on the verge of absolutely losing it. From neighbourly disputes to vendettas in both his personal and professional life, this uniquely British, crabby comedy hero will have you clutching your sides and clutching your pearls in equal measure.

So stick on your L plates and get ready for a bumpy ride.




Deutschland 86 and 83 & 86 DVD Box set

THE HUGELY anticipated Deutschland '86 returns to More4 following the unparalleled success of the first series Deutschland '83, which critics hailed as the start of a golden age for German TV. Alongside programmes like the much lauded Babylon Berlin Series One and Two, which has a season three in the pipeline, the timing is perfect for the next instalment of this cool, super stylish thriller. It is set to arrive on digital and DVD on 13 May 2019 from Acorn Media International alongside a stunning box DVD set of both series.

Deutschland '83 saw viewing figures in excess of 2.5 million, exceeding that of the seminal Nordic noir hit The Killing and putting Germany at the forefront of must watch television. This epic coming-of-age story is set against real events, culture wars and the political realities of Germany in the early 1980s and sees Jonas Nay (Line of Separation) as a spy at the centre of this suspenseful Cold War thriller. The series also features an era defining 1980s pop soundtrack that hits all the right nostalgaic buttons (99 Red Balloons anyone?).

Deutschland '86 is an epic 10-part drama that catapaults audiences into the tumultuous political landscape of 80s East Germany. We join Martin Rauch (Nay) in 1986 and East Germany is broken, Perestroika is real, terrorism plagues Europe, the AIDS crisis intensifies and the struggle against apartheid rages on. Banished for his sins in 1983, Rauch wallows in limbo until his Aunt Lenora (Maria Schrader - Aimee & Jaguar, The City and the City) conscript him into her plan to drum up hard currency abroad. They set off on an adventure through Africa, Western Europe and finally home to East Germany. Can mafioso-style Capitalism save Communism just in the nick of time?




Chimerica Series One

Earning plaudits galore and described as an 'electrifying thriller' by The Guardian, Olivier award-winning playwright Lucy Kirkwood's stage play Chimerica is set for the small screen treatment, as a powerful and timely four-part series. Airing on Channel 4 this Spring, this unique drama is set to arrive on DVD and digital from Acorn Media International.

Adapted by Kirkwood for TV, this fictional story about true events has been brought up to date using the notorious 2016 US Presidential election as a back drop. It explores the murky borders between fact and fiction, truth and censorship, political manipulation and personal sacrifice.

Award-winning actor Alessandro Nivola (American Hustle, Disobedience) stars as Lee Berger, the photographer behind the seminal Tank Man of Tiananmen Square photo, captured during the deadly 1989 protests in China. Now working as a dedicated photojournalist in America, accusations of fake news are levelled against him, and he sets out to reclaim his credibility by searching for the subject of his most famous picture.

Joining Lee on his frantic search are seasoned reporter Mel Kincaid (Cherry Jones - Transparent, The Handmaid's Tale), corporate market researcher Tess Kendrick (Sophie Okonedo - Hotel Rwanda, The Hollow Crown) and cynical newspaper boss Frank Sams (F. Murray Abraham - Homeland, The Grand Budapest Hotel). Lee also enlists the help of an old friend, Chinese activist Zhang Lin (Terry Chen - Jessica Jones, Birth of the Dragon), who has troubles of his own. Can he uncover the elusive truth before it is too late?




Sharkwater Extinction

Following its highly praised theatrical bow, the eye-opening, feature documentary Sharkwater Extinction from Rob Stewart, the award-winning director of Sharkwater and Revolution, is set to arrive on digital and DVD courtesy of Sparky Pictures.

More than 150 million sharks are being killed every year. The oceans are in danger. Sharks play a hugely important role in the environment. Who is the real enemy: shark or human? Sharkwater Extinction takes us on one man's mission: to protect sharks from extinction and save the oceans before it's too late.

We join the courageous filmmaker and renowned activist on a hugely inspirational, thrilling but hazardous journey, as he dives deep into oceans and travels across four continents to investigate the eye-watering scale of corruption, destruction and danger that the multi-billion-dollar pirate fishing industry and vast illegal shark fin trade bring.

Sharkwater Extinction is now set for its home entertainment release on digital from 6 May 2019 on Amazon, Sky Store, iTunes, Virgin On Demand and Google Play. The DVD release will follow, complete with special features, on 20 May 2019.




Line of Duty Series Five

Lauded as 'the king of the crime dramas' by The Telegraph, the highly acclaimed, hit series Line of Duty - from award-winning scribe Jed Mercurio (Bodyguard) - returns to our screens for its much anticipated fifth rollercoaster instalment.

And it's set to arrive on DVD as Line of Duty Series Five alongside the full thrilling Series One - Five Complete Box Set from Acorn Media International on 6 May 2019 following its Sunday night primetime run on BBCOne. They will also be available to buy digitally (download and keep).

Line of Duty Series Five sees the return of AC-12 investigators Superintendent Ted Hastings (Adrian Dunbar), Detective Inspector Kate Fleming (Vicky McClure) and Detective Sergeant Steve Arnott (Martin Compston) to tackle another major case of police corruption. The team are joined by some familiar faces, alongside a stellar line up of new characters, but who can they trust?

One of Britain's great acting talents Stephen Graham gives an awe-inspiring turn as John Corbett, the ruthless leader of an Organised Crime Group (OCG) who hijack a seized drugs convoy. When three police officers are shot dead during the heist, AC-12 move in to investigate possible police collusion. As the body count rises, AC-12 realise they could be facing their most vicious adversary yet.




Rupert, Rupert & Rupert

Rupert is a struggling actor, Rupert is struggling to find love, and Rupert is struggling to know who he is in bittersweet British drama Rupert, Rupert & Rupert, which is set for its world premiere this spring with a limited theatrical and digital release thanks to Substantial Films.

This rollercoaster ride follows budding actor Rupert Lindsay (Sandy Batchelor) who is desperate to get his big break in acting, but there's one slight problem: he keeps having angry and lascivious outbursts and he can never remember what he did, what he said or even who he hurt. A chance audition puts him in front of failed film director Geoffrey Morton (Ben Porter - Casualty, The Bill), whose last hope in the industry rests on finding a star who can effectively portray the lead in 'The Fatal Blasphemy of Jeremiah Ulysses's Boundless Rage.'

Rupert's angry outbursts have never looked so good, but his psychotherapist Angus (Adam Astill - Unforgotten, Eastenders) wouldn't agree. Trying to keep his disorder in check, Angus is concerned about how Rupert will cope with the pressure of having the success of the play resting on him losing control.
