Acorn TV will debut three new originals across Canada and the U.S. this month: Bloodlands, The Attaché, and The Brokenwood Mysteries’ seventh season.
Following its UK premiere on BBC this past February, Bloodlands debuts on Monday, March 15 and stars James Nesbitt (The Hobbit). New episodes continue weekly through April 5.
When an expensive car containing a possible suicide note is pulled from the sea, veteran Northern Ireland police detective Tom Brannick (Nesbitt) instantly sees the connection to an infamous cold case that holds enormous personal significance for him. It seems someone is trying to force the police to re-open their investigation into a notorious and long-buried series of mysterious disappearances over 20 years ago during a dark period in Northern Ireland history. This intense Irish crime thriller follows Brannick’s obsessive campaign to identify and unmask the legendary assassin behind these events, a semi-mythical figure nicknamed Goliath: it’s an explosive cat-and-mouse game where the stakes have never been higher.
The Attaché, a Hebrew/French series, premieres on Monday, March 22 with all 10 episodes.
From the producers of hit series Shtisel: The series creator, director and writer Elie Ben-David (Anachnu BaMapa, Buba Shel Layla) based this story on his personal experiences of living in Paris during the past few years. Ben David portrays an Israeli Jewish man of Moroccan descent, a successful musician who relocated to Paris for his wife’s new job as the Attaché to the Israeli embassy in Paris. His wife becomes a busy Parisian career woman, wittier and busier than ever before. There in the eternal capital of romance, he has a marital crisis, a personal immigration crisis in the heart of Europe, and a crisis of masculinity and fatherhood.
The seventh season of The Brokenwood Mysteries begins streaming on March 29, with new episodes becoming available each Monday through May 3.
Regarded by many as the New Zealand version of Midsomer Murders, this acclaimed detective series filmed amid the beautiful landscape of the country’s North returns with six feature-length, standalone mysteries featuring compelling characters, dry humor, and piquant wit. After transferring from a big city to the quiet, little, murder-ridden town of Brokenwood, Detective Senior Sergeant Mike Shepherd (Neill Rea, Go Girls) and Detective Kristin Simms (Fern Sutherland, The Almighty Johnsons) uncover more macabre goings on and investigate murderous rivalries and lethal grudges.
