A Town Called Malice

The series 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 this is 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".

Django is a high-concept reimagining of the classic Western, loosely based on Sergio Corbucci’s eponymous cult classic film.

Set in Texas in the late 1800s, Django is a jaded cowboy in search of the daughter he thought he'd lost. 

The series stars the award-winning Matthias Schoenaerts as the iconic title character, alongside Nicholas Pinnock as John Ellis, visionary founder of the town of New Babylon.

Lisa Vicari plays Django’s daughter Sarah, and Noomi Rapace is in the role of John’s powerful and ruthless enemy, Elizabeth Thurman.

Funny Woman

It’s 1964 and girls are expected to be flirty, fabulous and fertile - they are not expected to be funny, but Barbara Parker is different. 

This comic drama follows Barbara (Gemma Arterton), a young woman working in a Blackpool rock factory who sets off for London without a plan, but with a dream. 

She embarks on a mission to reinvent herself and find her voice in the male-dominated world of the 1960s sitcom. 

However the road to stardom is paved with banana skins and she suffers many a pratfall before she achieves her goal.
