June 1, 2021: The Syndicate: Double or Nothing
When the owners of Woodvale Kennels announce they are selling the business to a large corporate chain, staff members Keeley (Katherine Rose Morely, Last Tango in Halifax) Jake (Kieran Urquhart, Vera), Roxy (Taj Atwal, Line of Duty), Gemma (Liberty Hobbs, Grey’s Anatomy) and Colette (Emily Head, The Inbetweeners) are devastated to learn that they may be out of a job. Dependent on their pay to get them from one month to the next, the weekly lottery looks like the only lifeline to gambling addict Keeley. Excitement takes over when the machine goes off after checking the ticket with local news agent Frank (Neil Morrissey, Line of Duty) – but is everything that it seems? Will the syndicate get what’s rightfully theirs? Watch as these kennel workers spend every last penny they own, from Yorkshire to Monaco, to see justice through.

Two leading British criminal barristers, Jeremy and Sasha, re-investigate historical murder cases in this return of the award-winning true crime series. The series continues to follow the emotional journey of modern-day descendants who are trying to clear the names of relatives executed for murder. However, the stories don’t always end there, and with new companion series Murder, Mystery and My Family: Case Closed?

June 15, 2021: Intruder

In a rage, Sam kills one of the intruders, Syed Khali, who is trying to escape through a window. Realizing that Sam actually murdered the intruder, not in self-defense, the couple hatch a plan to restage the crime scene and change their stories before the police arrive. At first, they seem to have gotten away with their lie, however, as the investigation intensifies, their cover-up starts to unravel. Exactly how far are Rebecca and Sam willing to go to protect the life they have created?
June 22, 2021: Inside No. 9 S6
A deliciously dark comedy anthology series that tells unique and daring stories related to the number 9, Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith’s award-winning series returns with season 6.
