SUNDANCE NOW RELEASES TRAILER AND KEY ART FOR ITS ORIGINAL TRUE CRIME SERIES, “THE NIGHT CALLER”

The Eerie Tale Premieres Exclusively in North America on Tuesday, January 19

January 12, 2021 – New York – Sundance Now has released a trailer and key art for its newest original true crime documentary series, The Night Caller, premiering on Tuesday, January 19, with new episodes premiering every following Tuesday. The four-part series will stream exclusively on Sundance Now, including the Sundance Now offering within the AMC+ bundle.

The Night Caller depicts and explores the true story of Australian serial killer Eric Edgar Cooke, and the shattered families that are still seeking answers to this day. In the early 1960s, a mysterious attacker terrorized Perth, committing random and extraordinarily violent crimes. Determined to find the culprit, the police arrested two different suspects. And in a climate of fear, both men were convicted. But the violence didn’t stop. Even when the actual killer was caught and confessed to all the crimes, the first two men remain behind bars. It will be many years until real justice is served for the victims and the innocent.

With unprecedented access to the killer’s wife and the two men wrongly convicted of his crimes, creator and director Thomas Meadmore explores the devastating aftermath of a serial murderer. Throughout the series, he uncovers how the community and those affected have come together through grief to pursue closure, redemption and finally hold the police accountable.

The Night Caller is a Sundance Now Original Series, written and directed by Thomas Meadmore. It is produced by Salon Pictures and EQ Media Group and distributed by Abacus Media Rights (AMR). David Alrich, Brendan Dahill, Nick Taussig, Nick Forward and Jonathan Ford serve as executive producers.

AMC+, Sundance Now and Shudder Offer “A Discovery of Witches” Catch-Up Headed Into Season Two





AMC+, Sundance Now and Shudder Offer “A Discovery of Witches” Catch-Up Headed Into Season Two

NEW YORK, NY, January 4, 2021 – In advance of the highly anticipated season two premiere of A Discovery of Witches on January 9, fans are being given a number of ways to catch up on season one, as AMC Networks uses a variety of platforms to lean into the return of one of 2019’s biggest hits, which drove record usage and subscriptions for its Sundance Now and Shudder streaming services. The entire first season will be available on Sundance Now, Shudder and AMC+ as free content without a subscription from January 4 through January 18. The first season will also appear on the AMC linear network as a full-season marathon on January 24, including special additional behind the scenes content with the cast and crew and interviews with author Deborah Harkness.

Season two will premiere on Sundance Now, Shudder and AMC+ on January 9, one day after the series’ UK Premiere. The second season consists of 10 new episodes, with a new episode arriving on all three platforms every Saturday. A Discovery of Witches is the #1 title in the history of Sundance Now and remains one of the top series streamed each month. At the time of its premiere last year, it was the #1 title in the history of Shudder and remains among its top performing original series, along with Creepshow, Cursed Films and The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs. AMC will also feature the full second season on its linear network this June.

“A Discovery of Witches was a runaway hit for Sundance Now and Shudder last year, driving record usage and subscriptions at a time when our streaming services were gaining momentum in a crowded and increasingly competitive market,” said Miguel Penella, president of SVOD for AMC Networks. “With the arrival of the highly anticipated second season, we want to make sure new fans have the ability to catch up on the first season and those who loved the series have the ability to relive the experience as we anticipate the arrival of season two on January 9. There has never been a single series that has had the impact of A Discovery of Witches across our streaming platforms, which now include AMC+, so the arrival of a new season is a hugely significant moment for the fans and for our fast-growing platforms.”

Featuring stunning lead performances from Teresa Palmer (Hacksaw Ridge) and Matthew Goode (Downton Abbey), adapted from Deborah Harkness’ All Souls trilogy, the 10-part second season finds Diana (Teresa Palmer) and Matthew (Matthew Goode) hiding in time in the fascinating and treacherous world of Elizabethan London – here they must find a powerful witch teacher to help Diana control her magic and search for the elusive Book of Life.

In Elizabethan London, Diana and Matthew’s romance faces a barrage of new threats. Diana’s unleashed magic takes a dark and frightening turn, while Matthew struggles to re-inhabit the dangerous life he led over four centuries ago. They must overcome deep personal fears and jealousies, bearing their darkest secrets to one another if they are to stay alive, stay together and find a way back to present day.

While Diana and Matthew hide out in Elizabethan London, back in present day, Diana’s beloved aunts, Sarah (Alex Kingston, Doctor Who, ER) and Em (Valarie Pettiford, Half & Half), must take shelter with notorious witch hunter Ysabeau de Clermont (Lindsay Duncan, The Honourable Woman) at her ancestral home, Sept-Tours. Meanwhile, in Oxford, Marcus (Edward Bluemel, Killing Eve) and Miriam (Aiysha Hart, Line of Duty) take on Matthew’s mantle to protect daemons Nathaniel (Daniel Ezra, All American) and Sophie (Aisling Loftus, War & Peace), whose pregnancy is advancing. And Gerbert (Trevor Eve, Waking the Dead), Knox (Owen Teale, Game of Thrones), Satu (Malin Buska, The Girl King) and Domenico (Gregg Chillin, Da Vinci’s Demons) are determined to hunt down every clue they can to Diana’s and Matthew’s disappearance, and the secrets their allies are keeping from them.

Also starring James Purefoy (Rome, Pennyworth), Steven Cree (Outlander), and Adelle Leonce (Black Mirror) as new characters introduced in season two.

The show was commissioned by Zai Bennett, Managing Director of Content, Sky UK and Ireland, and Cameron Roach, Director of Drama, Sky Studios. Made by Bad Wolf Limited, A Discovery of Witches has been adapted for screen by Pete McTighe (Doctor Who) and Susie Conklin (The Musketeers), who are also executive producers, along with other writers including Sarah Dollard (Doctor Who, Being Human). The co-founders of Bad Wolf, Jane Tranter and Julie Gardner, and Lachlan MacKinnon are executive producers along with Deborah Harkness and Farren Blackburn and Kara Manley for Sky Studios. Farren Blackburn (The Innocents), Philippa Langdale (Harlots) and Jonathan Teplitzky (The Railway Man) are the directors. Filming took place in South Wales and on location in Oxford and Venice.

The Salisbury Poisonings

All four episodes drop on AMC+ on Thursday, October 1; debuts on AMC early next year

The Salisbury Poisonings tells the remarkable story of how ordinary people and public services reacted to a crisis on their doorstep, displaying extraordinary heroism as their city became the focus of an unprecedented national emergency. In March 2018, the eyes of the world turned to the British city of Salisbury when it became the epicenter of what has been described as one of the biggest political events of the 21st century – but until now, the heroic acts behind the headlines have not been told. Within three days of the assassination attempt on double agent and spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia, key agencies discovered that a lethal nerve agent called Novichok was used, just half a teaspoon of which could kill 20,000 people. Within four days, hundreds of traces were found across the city, and, just when things were finally thought to be under control, a perfume bottle containing the nerve agent was discovered, throwing the investigation into renewed chaos.

The Salisbury Poisonings is executive produced by Laurence Bowen and Chris Carey for Dancing Ledge Productions, Lucy Richer for the BBC, and by the writers of the drama, Adam Patterson and Declan Lawn and series director Saul Dibb. Series producer is Karen Lewis.

Gangs of London Season 1

First three episodes drop on AMC+ on Thursday, October 1 (episodes will then roll out weekly); debuts on AMC early next year

Gangs of London’s critically acclaimed first season was a huge success in the UK as it took audiences on an immersive journey into the hidden heart of the capital. The 10-episode first season of the action-packed thriller debuts on AMC+ this fall for US audiences and has been renewed for a second season with the network on board to co-produce.

Set in the heart of one of the world’s most dynamic and multicultural cities, Gangs of London tells the story of a city being torn apart by the turbulent power struggles of the international gangs that control it and the sudden power vacuum that’s created when the head of London’s most powerful crime family is assassinated. The series stars a multi-talented ensemble cast including Joe Cole (Peaky Blinders, Pure, Black Mirror), Ṣọpẹ́ Dìrísù (Humans), Colm Meaney (Star Trek, Hell on Wheels, Layer Cake), Lucian Msamati (His Dark Materials, Black Earth Rising, Kiri), Michelle Fairley (Game of Thrones, Suits) Paapa Essiedu (Press, Kiri) and Pippa Bennett-Warner (MatherFatherSon, Harlots, Sick Note).

For 20 years, Finn Wallace (Meaney) was the most powerful criminal in London. Billions of pounds flowed through his organization each year. But now he’s dead – and nobody knows who ordered the hit. With rivals everywhere, it’s up to the impulsive Sean Wallace (Cole), with the help of the Dumani family headed by Ed Dumani (Msamati), to take his father’s place. If the situation wasn’t already dangerous enough, Sean’s assumption of power causes ripples in the world of international crime. Perhaps the one man who might be able to help him and be his ally is Elliot Finch (Dìrísù), who up until now, has been one of life’s losers, a lowlife chancer with a mysterious interest in the Wallace family. But as the wind of fate blows, Elliot finds himself transported to the inner workings of the largest criminal organization in London. It doesn’t end with the Wallaces though, there are shadowy higher powers at play.

Gangs of London is created by award-winning filmmaker Gareth Evans and his creative partner Matt Flannery and is produced by Pulse Films in association with SISTER, with AMC serving as co-producer. The series was executive produced by Pulse Films’ founder Thomas Benski, and Lucas Ochoa alongside Jane Featherstone, from SISTER.

THE SUSPECT

Exclusive U.S. Premiere on Sundance Now on Tuesday, August 18, 2020

AMC Networks’ streaming service Sundance Now features the Exclusive U.S. Premiere of the bewildering new true crime series THE SUSPECT on Tuesday, August 18, 2020 with a new episode available every following Tuesday. The top-rated CBC 4-part documentary involves alleged police misconduct, media frenzy and wrongful conviction. When millionaire Richard Oland of Moosehead Brewing fame suffered a gruesome 45 blows to his head, neck, and hands, his son Dennis immediately became the police’s prime and only suspect. The case turned one of Canada’s wealthiest families into the cast of a real-life soap opera. The riveting series was directed by Deborah Wainwright, who was granted intimate access to the media-wary family. The series tracks the challenges her team faced navigating the incredible twists and turns that arose during this high-profile case. Sundance Now is AMC Networks’ premiere streaming service for engrossing true crime, heart-stopping dramas and fiercely intelligent thrillers from around the world.

It was a blood bath. On July 6, 2011, Richard Oland suffered a gruesome 45 blows to his head neck, and hands. A crime like this would have been big news almost anywhere, but in New Brunswick, it was huge. The victim was one of the elites. His son, Dennis, quickly became the prime suspect. Dennis was the last known person to see his father alive, he was deeply in debt, and blood and his father’s DNA were found on his clothing. After years of widespread schadenfreude, alleged police misconduct, trial by media, and a jury pool contaminated by a constant barrage of pre-trial publicity, Dennis was convicted and sentenced to life in prison. But he has always insisted he is innocent, and in October of 2016, a retrial was ordered. Since his release, the documentary crew had intimate and exclusive access to the defense, the accused, his family, and investigators, documenting the road to retrial. They follow unexplored leads and dig into new evidence in a search for the truth. Capturing every moment until the unpredictable conclusion at the trial’s end.
