A Town Called Malice

This all-new crime-drama follows the Lords, a family of South London gangsters who’ve fallen to the bottom of the criminal food chain. After fleeing to the Costa del Sol, the family believe they have a golden opportunity to re-invent themselves and recapture their former glory.

Following the family as they battle their enemies and fight among themselves, the series has been described as a “neon Western” and a “musical love letter to the ‘80s”.

When private detective Philip Marlowe (Liam Neeson) is hired to find the ex-lover of a glamorous heiress (Diane Kruger), it looks an open-and-shut case. But Marlowe finds himself in the underbelly of Hollywood’s 1930s film industry and unwittingly drawn into the crossfire of a legendary Hollywood actress (Jessica Lange).

The disappearance unearths a web of lies, and soon Marlowe is involved in a dangerous, deadly investigation where everyone involved has something to hide.

Marlow is streaming on Sky Cinema with Now from March 17.

Call Jane

In 1968 Chicago, with the city and the nation amid the political and civil upheaval, conservative housewife and mother Joy (Elizabeth Banks) is faced with a devastating diagnosis when her second pregnancy leads to a life-threatening heart condition. Following an all-male hospital board’s decision to deny an exemption for an abortion – which is, by law, illegal – Joy’s search for a solution leads her to a clandestine group of women.

Led by Virginia (Sigourney Weaver), an independent visionary fiercely committed to women’s health, and Gwen (Wunmi Mosaku), an activist who envisions a day when all women will have access to safe, affordable abortions, this community of women ignites an awakening in Joy. Inspired by their compassion and commitment, Joy joins them, putting every aspect of her life on the line.
