Mary & George - Sky Atlantic (launches 5th March!)
Mary & George is inspired by the outrageous true story of Mary Villiers (Julianne Moore), who moulded her beautiful and charismatic son, George (Nicholas Galitzine), to seduce King James VI of Scotland and I of England (Tony Curran) and become his all- powerful lover.
Mr Bigstuff - Sky Comedy
Ryan Sampson (Brassic, Plebs), authors Mr Bigstuff in which estranged brothers Glen (Sampson) and Lee, played by Danny Dyer (Eastenders) in his television comedy debut, try to patch up a sibling rivalry that may well be beyond repair. Or beyond Spare.
The Regime - Sky Atlantic

TED - Sky Max
Following the huge success of the global hit film franchise, Ted, the bear is set to take over the small screen in a 7-episode prequel series. It’s 1993, and Ted the bear’s (Seth MacFarlane) moment of fame has passed. He’s now living back home in Framingham, Massachusetts with his best friend, 16-year-old John Bennet (Max Burkholder), along with John’s parents and cousin Blaire. Ted may be a lousy influence on John, but at the end of the day, he’s a loyal pal who’s always willing to go out on a limb for friendship.
Rob Beckett’s Smart TV - Sky Max
From the makers of Never Mind the Buzzcocks comes a brand-new, fast-paced comedy quiz show all about the magic of television. Hosted by the brilliant Rob Beckett alongside team captains – TV fanatic Josh Widdicombe, and a lady who frankly is TV personified, Alison Hammond – the show will be a hilarious celebration of the small screen and the shows we love.
Fire Country - Sky Witness
Fire Country, US network CBS’ top-rated new TV series of the last year, is coming to the UK in 2024. Starring and executive produced by Max Thieriot (Seal Team), Fire Country tells the story of a young convict, Bode Donovan, who seeks redemption and a shortened prison sentence by joining a prison-release firefighting programme.
Returning series include:
Ferrari - Sky Cinema
It is the summer of 1957. Behind the spectacle of Formula 1, ex-racer Enzo Ferrari (Adam Driver) is in crisis. Bankruptcy threatens the factory he and his wife, Laura built from nothing ten years earlier. His drivers’ passion to win pushes them to the edge as they launch into the treacherous 1,000-mile race across Italy, the Mille Miglia.
Lee - Sky Cinema
Starring Kate Winslet, the film is not a biopic, instead it explores the most significant decade of Lee Miller’s life. Lee Miller defied the expectations and rules of the time and travelled to Europe to report from the frontline. There, in part as a reaction to her own well-hidden trauma, she used her Rolleiflex camera to give a voice to the voiceless. Her photographs of the war, its victims and its consequences remain among the most significant and historically important of the second world war.
The Beekeeper - Sky Cinema
In The Beekeeper, one man's brutal campaign for vengeance takes on national stakes after he is revealed to be a former operative of a powerful and clandestine organization known as "Beekeepers".
The Radleys - Sky Cinema
The Radleys is a scarily relatable vampire thriller adapted from the critically acclaimed novel by best-selling author Matt Haig and based on a script developed by British Comedy Award winner Jo Brand.
Asteroid City - Sky Cinema
The itinerary of a Junior Stargazer/Space Cadet convention (organised to bring together students and parents from across the country for fellowship and scholarly competition) is spectacularly disrupted by world-changing events. Classic Wes Anderson featuring his signature brand of quirk, starring Scarlett Johansson, Jason Schwartzman and Tom Hanks.
Dangerous Waters - Sky Cinema
A sailing adventure spirals out of control in this tightly wound-survival thriller. 19-year-old Rose (Odeya Rush) lives a tough, small-town life in Florida with her single mother Alma (Saffron Burrows). Their luck seems to take a turn when Alma's new businessman boyfriend, Derek (Eric Dane), whisks them away on a sailing adventure to Bermuda. While at sea, Derek's "business" is revealed to be less than legitimate when their boat is attacked by savage villains, set on fire, and Alma is viciously killed. Distraught and persecuted by Derek and The Captain (Ray Liotta), Rose unearths a primal instinct of survival and a terrifying need for vengeance. She will not yield until those responsible for her mother's murder are dead.
Dashcam - Sky Cinema
At the start of the pandemic, an indulgent and self-deluded livestreaming improv musician abandons LA for London, steals her ex-band mate's car, and makes the wrong decision to give a ride to an elderly woman who is not what she seems.
Paw Patrol: The Mighty Movie - Sky Cinema
The PAW Patrol pups magically gain superpowers after a meteor strikes Adventure City. However, things take a turn for the worse when Humdinger and a mad scientist steal their powers and turn themselves into supervillains.
