Sky Living Announce Trio of US Hits

coming soon to Sky Living

For a broadcaster, their primary job is getting viewers to tune in to their channel, and to keep them there for the longest time possible. For some channels, that might mean funnelling huge amounts of money into original programming (Sky Atlantic, Sky 1), but for others, it means winning the bidding wars that bring the best programmes from overseas to your channel. Sky Living have made a name for doing just that over recent years, bringing the astonishing Hannibal to our screens ahead of competing channels which fought hard to win it. That kind of tenacious programming has kept many customers from the Sky customer service number, and with the news that the channel have scooped up three new hot US dramas to air during this autumn, so let's find out what they are.

Limitless

Limitless has recently been described by Forbes magazine as "One of the best new shows" to premiere during this autumn, and is the television sequel to the popular 2011 film, which found Bradley Cooper taking a drug which unlocked the maximum potential of the human brain. Now, with an all new cast which includes Jake McDorman in the lead, Jennifer Carpenter as Agent Rebecca Harris, Hill Harper as Agent Spelman Boyle, Academy Award Nominee Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio as SAC Nasreen “Naz” Pouran and a special appearance by four time Academy Award Nominee (and star of the original Limitless film) Bradley Cooper. who is also acting as Executive Producer on the series, he'll be playing Senator Edward Morra in the pilot episode.

The series is built around Brian Finch (McDorman), a musician who's down on his luck and struggling to hold down jobs. Before long, he discovers the NZT drug and is employed by the FBI to use his cognitive powers to solve difficult cases for them, however, all is not what it seems.

The Catch

Developed by ABC Studios, this thriller mixes crime and romance in equal measure, and centres around the strong, successful Alice Martin, played by Mireille Enos. She's a fraud investigator who's about to fall victim to fraud by her fiance, played by Peter Krause. Between her existing cases, she's determined to find her fiance's location before it destroys her career. Julia Barry, Director of Sky Living said: “Sky Living is the home of grown up, addictive and escapist TV so we’re very excited to bring another series from Shonda Rhimes to our customers’ screens. The Catch is a crime thriller with a difference which will definitely leave you wanting to know more about the lead character, Alice Martin, and her fast-paced life and mysterious fiancé. I’m confident fans of our other US dramas are going to fall in love with the show and I can’t wait till it starts.”

Blindspot

As a programme that's been heavily requested on the Sky customer service number, Sky Living are delighted to be able to announce that they've scooped up the rights to one of the highest rated new shows on NBC. Blindspot stars Sullivan Stapleton as tough FBI agent Kurt Weller, Jaimie Alexander as Jane Doe and Marianne Jean-Baptiste as FBI AD Bethany Mayfair. We join Doe's story as she emerges naked from a bag in Times Square, with no memory of who she is, what her cryptic tattoos mean or, indeed, how she got there. In an adventure that goes places you didn't think TV could, Blindspot provides one of the more exhilarating experiences of the year.
