Other highlights include From May 23rd, Colony (2016-2018). In the not-too-distant future, Los Angeles has been invaded and occupied by outside forces, causing arift between the city’s residents; some have collaborated with the occupation, while others are rebelling and suffering the consequences that come with that choice.

Former FYI agent Will Bowman (Josh Holloway) and his wife, Katie (Sarah Wayne Callies), must consider their familiar obligations when making their decision because they were separated from their son, Bram, during the invasion.

And The Beast Must Die (2021) from May 6th. After learning the police investigation into the fatal hit and run of her young son Martie has been dropped, Frances Cairnes (Cush Jumbo) takes matters into her own hands. Posing as a novelist researching a new murder-mystery, Frances ingratiates herself with the family of George Rattery (Jared Harris), the man she suspects is responsible, and sets a plan in action to kill him.

She’s tracked by detective Nigel Strangeways (Billy Howle, The Serpent, MotherFatherSon), who has reason to believe his department covered up George’s involvement in the incident. Suffering from PTSD following the recent death of his partner, Strangeways throws himself into pursuing justice for Martie. But when he discovers an “undercover” Frances living with George and his family, Strangeways finds himself working to both prove George’s guilt and head off Frances’s plans for revenge before anyone else dies.
