The Undoing (May 2020 - HBO)

JUMP BACK TO TOP



Director: Susanne Bier

Starring: Nicole Kidman, Hugh Grant, Noah Jupe, Donald Sutherland, Edgar Ramirez, Ismael Cruz Cordova, Noma Dumezweni, Lily Rabe, Jonathan Fraser

Synopsis:


"The limited series THE UNDOING, premiering this May, stars Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant as Grace and Jonathan Fraser, who are living the only lives they ever wanted for themselves.

Overnight a chasm opens in their lives: a violent death and a chain of terrible revelations. Left behind in the wake of a spreading and very public disaster and horrified by the ways in which she has failed to heed her own advice, Grace must dismantle one life and create another for her child (Noah Jupe) and her family."







War Of The Worlds (February 16, 2020 - EPIX)

JUMP BACK TO TOP



Director: Gilles Coulier, Richard Clark (various episodes)

Starring: Gabriel Byrne, Elizabeth McGovern, Lea Drucker, Natasha Little, Daisy Edgar Jones, Stephane Caillard, Adel Bencherif, Guillaume Gouix

Synopsis:


"Set-in present-day Europe, War of the Worlds is a multi-faceted series, based on the story by H.G. Wells.

When astronomers detect a transmission from another galaxy, it is definitive proof of intelligent extraterrestrial life. The world's population waits for further contact with bated breath. They do not have to wait long. Within days, mankind is all but wiped out by a devastating attack; pockets of humanity are left in an eerily deserted world. As aliens hunt and kill those left alive, the survivors ask a burning question -- who are these attackers and why are they hell-bent on our destruction?

Emotional, cinematic and rooted in character, it is a unique marriage of human drama and the best science fiction. This is a story of ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances - but they are more than just victims in a brutal war. For, as we will come to realize, the aliens’ savage attack on earth is not arbitrary: its seeds are being sown before our very eyes."

Alex is soon approached by Alan Blunt, head of a top-secret offshoot of MI6 known as The Department, who reveals that he's been unknowingly trained since childhood for the dangerous world of espionage. Pressured to leave his old life behind, Alex goes undercover to investigate the connection between the deaths of two billionaires and a remote boarding school called Point Blanc. Upon arrival, he discovers that the students are subjects in the megalomaniacal school director's plan led to gain control of their families' business empires. Aided by his classmate Kyra, best friend Tom, and his au pair Jack, Alex exposes the plot's global network and begins his career as MI6's youngest covert asset."
