The Independent

Starring Brian Cox (Succession), Jodie Turner-Smith (Queen and Slim), John Cena (The Suicide Squad) and Ann Dowd (The Handmaid’s Tale), The Independent is the story of budding investigative journalist Eli, who uncovers a conspiracy that threatens the very foundations of Washington DC.

Reporting history as it’s made, Eli gets an opportunity to work with her idol, veteran Washington political columnist Nick Booker. As they pursue a story about budget cuts, and follow the money, she and Booker uncover a financial conspiracy that places the fate of the election, the country and democracy in their hands.

The Reluctant Traveller

The Reluctant Traveller is a globetrotting travel series hosted by Emmy award winner Eugene Levy (Schitt’s Creek). Its eight episodes follow Levy as he visits some of the world’s most beautiful and intriguing destinations in Costa Rica, Finland, Italy, Japan, Maldives, Portugal, South Africa and the United States, exploring remarkable hotels and the places and cultures surrounding them. Self-confessedly not your typical travel show host – he’s not usually adventurous or well-versed in globe-trotting – Levy agrees the time is finally right for him to broaden his horizons. Packing his suitcase with some trepidation, he hopes his experiences might lead to a whole new chapter in life, even if that means confronting some long-held fears.

The Man Who Stole The Scream

This is the remarkable story of the theft of one of the most iconic paintings in history. Edvard Munch’s ‘The Scream’ was stolen during the 1994 Winter Olympics in Norway in an outrageously bold art heist that triggered a thrilling cat-and-mouse caper, involving the Norwegian authorities, the global media and Scotland Yard’s specialist Art Squad. Only one man was ever convicted of the crime – former professional footballer Pål Enger. Why did he do it and what really happened? Was his motive money, fame or an obsession that’s haunted him since he first saw the painting as a child on a school trip? Mischievous and profoundly moving, this is an extraordinary Scandi noir-style psychological crime doc.
