Brand New British TV Shows in June + Cumberbatch & Colman Together

Tomorrow (June 17th) will mark 27 years since the premiere of The Broker's Man, a crime drama in which Kevin Whately (Lewis) played an ex-detective turned fraud investigator for an insurance company.

Aside from offering a unique twist on the usual crime/investigation genre, it offers an interesting look back at the UK of 25+ years ago. It also includes guest appearances from a number of faces you'll likely recognise - Jamie Glover (Agatha Raisin), Max Beesley (Hijack), Fay Ripley (Cold Feet), and Joanna Bacon (Breeders), to name a few.

In the US, you can stream it free with ads on Tubi, Freevee, or Roku.

Recent Casting Notices...

As always, there's much to look forward to. Here are a few more projects in various stages of development:

  • Brassic, Season 7 - This dramedy is one of Sky's most successful recent comedies, and though it hasn't been quite as popular with American audiences, they're preparing to film a 7th season in early 2025. The series follows the lives of a group of young people in the fictional northern town of Hawley. They're broke and they often commit petty crimes to get by, but they also dream of a better life outside their small town. In the US, you can find earlier seasons on Hulu.
  • How to Get to Heaven From Belfast - Derry Girls creator Lisa McGee is the creator of this comedy thriller about a group of three school friends, now in their late thirties, who lead very different lives. One's a successful but self-destructive writer, another is a stressed out mum to three boys, and the third still lives at home with her mother, for whom she is a full-time carer. When they each receive an email about the death of an old classmate, they decide to attend her wake and they soon realise all is not as it seems. What follows will turn out to be the greatest adventure of their lives. It's expected to begin filming for Netflix in summer 2024.
  • Pillion - This upcoming BBC and Element Pictures feature film follows Colin (Harry Melling), a wallflower whose life is quite dull until the handsome leader of a motorbike club (Alexander Skarsgard) takes him on as his submissive. This won't be everyone's cup of tea, but we imagine more than a few people will watch it in hopes of seeing Alexander Skarsgard in leather.
  • The Roses - Benedict Cumberbatch and Olivia Colman star in this dark comedy film about a seemingly perfect couple, Theo and Ivy. Though it seems they have great careers, good kids, and a great sex life, resentment and competition burn just beneath the surface. When Theo's professional dreams come crashing down around him, their marital bliss turns into a battle of wills.
  • The Seven Dials Mystery - Mia McKenna-Bruce, Helena Bonham Carter and Martin Freeman are part of the cast for this upcoming Netflix adaptation of the classic Agatha Christie novel. The adaptation will be written by Chris Chibnall (Broadchurch), and filming begins in summer 2024.
