Two Big New Dramas Starting Next Week
Next week sees the premiere of two big UK television drama series, each starring two HH clients.
The 4-part Channel 4 miniseries examines the impact, both public and private, of accusations of historic sexual offences against fictional, much-loved public figure Paul Finchley (played by Robbie Coltrane). The series is a timely exploration of truth, memory, trust and family. As the investigation and criminal trial work their way towards a verdict, those closest to Paul - including his wife Marie, played by Julie Walters - must deal with the effects of the investigation. Memories that have become muddied in the intervening four decades are dredged, doubts flourish, loyalties are tested, and truths, half-truths and lies are all exposed.
Tune in for the premiere on Tuesday 20th September, 9pm on Channel 4. Continues weekly on Tuesdays. Here's the trailer:
A dark and exciting conspiracy thriller, Paranoid tells the story of a female GP who is murdered in a rural children’s playground with an abundance of eyewitnesses. A group of detectives embarks on what seems to be a straightforward murder investigation, but as they delve deeper into the case they are quickly drawn into the twists and turns of an ever-darkening mystery, which takes them unexpectedly across Europe.
Tune in for the premiere on Thursday 22nd September, 9pm on ITV. Continues weekly on Thursdays. Here's the trailer:
