motherland-sundance-now-season-3-release-date.jpg

Premiering exclusively in North America and available as a full season binge on Sundance Now and AMC+ on Thursday, July 8, Britain's favorite gang of moms (and dad) is back for a third season of Motherland, navigating the pitfalls of middle-class parenting and the complicated politics of the school gates. In the new season, Julia's (Anna Maxwell Martin, Line of Duty) elderly mother Marion (Ellie Haddington, Enola Holmes) has moved in thanks to failing health, so Julia is faced with the prospect of granny proofing her house. The only silver lining to this horror arrives in the form of Julia's new builder who turns out to be quite the DILF. Meanwhile, Amanda (Lucy Punch, Bloods) navigates the humiliation of divorce from Johnny (Terry Mynott, The Windsors), single mum Liz (Diane Morgan, Intelligence) launches herself back into the world of work, and Kevin (Paul Ready, Flack) tries everything to rekindle the spark with wife Jill. Highflyer Meg (Tanya Moodie, A Discovery of Witches) faces big health issues and Anne (Philippa Dunne, The Nevers) has to cope with a growing family. All this while the moms grapple with Mother's Day, the looming choice of secondary schools, a nit pandemic, and the school trip from hell. This season also includes a memorable guest appearance by beloved BAFTA-Award winning actress Joanna Lumley (Absolutely Fabulous, The Wolf of Wall Street) as Amanda's poisonous mother. Motherland season three, A Sundance Now Exclusive Series, is a Boom Cymru TV Ltd and Merman MMXVII production. Sharon Horgan (Catastrophe), Holly Walsh (The Other One), Helen Serafinowicz (Fit) and Barunka O' Shaughnessy (Breeders) serve as writers and Simon Hynd (There She Goes) serves as director. Lionsgate distributes the series internationally.

Back to Life

After 18 years behind bars, Miri Matteson returns home and stumbles back into adult life in the claustrophobic coastal town she once knew in this half-hour comedy series. Miri attempts to rekindle old relationships, make new ones, look for work and readjust to life outside, while desperately waiting for the world to forget about what happened on that fateful night. SHOWTIME announces the six-part second season of the critically acclaimed comedy series BACK TO LIFE, created by and starring Daisy Haggard (EPISODES, Breeders), will premiere on Monday, September 13 at 10 p.m. ET/PT with new episodes airing each week. All episodes of season two will be available on that day to stream and on-demand for subscribers on SHOWTIME. From the producers of Fleabag, BACK TO LIFE follows Miri Matteson (Haggard) who, after 18 years behind bars, returns home and stumbles back into adult life in the coastal town she once knew. Miri continues to reconcile with her past while trying to assimilate and make a new life for herself post-incarceration. Season two of BACK TO LIFE picks up three weeks after the season one finale, and six weeks after Miri leaves prison. She is optimistic about her future. Her probation officer, Janice (Jo Martin), has gotten her a trial shift at the supermarket, she and her neighbor Billy (Adeel Akhtar) have been spending more time together, and she's found her hair crimper. However, Miri's not talking to her mother Caroline (Geraldine James) after the revelation that she was having an affair with Miri's ex-boyfriend Dom (Jamie Michie), and she'll need a lot of shifts at the supermarket before she can afford to move out. She's also avoiding her best friend Mandy (Christine Bottomley) after learning that Mandy's secret affair with Lara's father, John Boback led to Lara's death all those years ago. Things are about to get a whole lot worse with the arrival in Hythe of Lara's mother, Norah. Still grieving her daughter, it's clear her presence will ensure Miri cannot escape her past. BACK TO LIFE is produced by Two Brothers Pictures for SHOWTIME and BBC Three, UK in association with all3media international. The executive producers are Daisy Haggard and Laura Solon, who both wrote the series, Sarah Hammond, Chris Sweeney, Harry and Jack Williams, alongside Tanya Qureshi for BBC.
