SPELLBINDING PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER “ANGELA BLACK” TO PREMIERE EXCLUSIVELY ON SPECTRUM ON MONDAY, FEBRUARY 7

SERIES STARS GOLDEN GLOBE(R)WINNER JOANNE FROGGATT AND IS WRITTEN BY EMMY(R) AND GOLDEN GLOBE(R)-WINNING PRODUCERS AND SCREENWRITERS, HARRY AND JACK WILLIAMS

Los Angeles, Calif. (January 20, 2022) – Angela Black’s life in London may seem like a dream, but in reality, she’s living in a nightmare and her attempt to escape unfolds in the limited series, ANGELA BLACK. All six-episodes of the psychological thriller will drop in its entirety exclusively on Spectrum (available on-demand, free and without ads) on Monday, February 7.

The drama is produced by multi-award-winning production company Two Brothers Pictures, in association with All3Media International, and written by renowned Emmy(R) and Golden Globe(R)-winning producers and screenwriters Harry and Jack Williams (The Missing, Fleabag). The series stars Golden Globe Winner(R) Joanne Froggatt (Downton Abbey), Michiel Huisman (The Flight Attendant) and BIFA(R)-award winner Samuel Adewunmi (The Last Tree).

“From the moment I first read Jack and Harry’s poignant and timely script, I was passionate about playing Angela. Not only have the William’s brothers written a brilliant, edge of your seat thriller but also a story with so much heart that I know will connect with many. I feel very honored to have played Angela and I’m thrilled to be able to share ANGELA BLACK with viewers in the US on Spectrum,” said series star, Joanne Froggatt.

Angela’s life appears idyllic: a lovely house in suburban London, days working volunteer shifts at a dog shelter, two beautiful sons and a charming, hard-working husband – Olivier. However, beneath this façade of charmed domesticity, Angela is a victim of domestic violence. Olivier is controlling and brutal; but Angela loves him and he’s the father of her children. She covers her bruises with make- up and fabricates lies to explain away her missing teeth. Until, one day, Angela is approached by Ed – a Private Investigator – and he smashes her already strained domestic life to pieces. Ed reveals Olivier’s deepest secrets to Angela, and she is faced with horrifying truths about her husband and his betrayals being forced to take matters into her own hands.

ANGELA BLACK is a Two Brothers Pictures (an All3Media company) production, executive produced by award-winning writers Jack and Harry Williams (The Missing, Liar, The Widow) along with Two Brothers Pictures Head of Drama, Christopher Aird (Baptiste, Liar, Clique) and Sarah Hammond (Fleabag, Back to Life).

MARK STRONG’S COMPLICATED UNDERGROUND LIFE CONTINUES TO SPIRAL AS “TEMPLE” RETURNS FOR SEASON 2 MONDAY, NOVEMBER 1 ON SPECTRUM ORIGINALS

Los Angeles, Calif. (October 12, 2021) – TEMPLE named one of the “Best Shows of 2020” by the New York Times, makes its thrilling return to Spectrum On Demand when all seven episodes of the crime series drops ad-free on Monday, November 1.

Season One Temple was ranked #1 in unique VOD HHs and #1 in overall VOD usage (HBO’s The Undoing was #2) for its first 15 weeks on Spectrum (through February 27, 2021).

“We are delighted to be back on Spectrum with Season 2 of TEMPLE,” said Strong. “This time we take viewers on a white-knuckle ride above ground where events spin dangerously out of control and Daniel is forced into an unholy alliance with an unusual medical fixer played by the inimitable Rhys Ifans.”

Strong plays the brilliant but haunted surgeon, Daniel Milton, who sacrificed everything for love in Season 1 when he opened an illegal medical clinic in the network of tunnels beneath London’s Temple subway station with hopes of healing his wife Beth (Catherine McCormack) with experimental treatments. But when word of the clinic started to spread among outcasts and the criminal underworld, Daniel became entrenched in dangerous battles between life and death, which continues throughout Season 2 as he tumbles deeper and deeper into the hole he’s dug for himself. As he’s faced with larger than life decisions, the choices he makes will define him forever – for better or for worse.
