Keeping Faith

This thriller set in Carmarthenshire, Wales, and filmed back-to-back in Welsh and English, tells the story of a small-town Welsh lawyer, wife and mother, Faith, whose maternity leave is cut short when her husband and business partner, Evan, suddenly goes missing. As Faith sets about searching for the truth behind Evan's disappearance, she discovers that her seemingly idyllic home town hides many dark secrets that pose a danger to her and her beloved family and make her question how well she knows the man who is her husband. The highly-watched, award-winning Acorn TV Original UK domestic thriller Keeping Faith comes to a close in this dramatic, final season available exclusively in the U.S. on AMC Networks' acclaimed streaming service, Acorn TV, on Monday, April 12, with two episodes. Following that, new episodes will debut weekly on Mondays through May 10. Season three finds small town lawyer Faith Howells (Eve Myles, Broadchurch, Torchwood, Victoria) attempting to navigate the disillusion of her marriage, while taking on an emotionally wrenching legal medical case involving a gravely ill young boy. Into this mix, Faith is confronted by a terrible and long-buried figure from her past: her mother, Rose Fairchild (Celia Imrie, Better Things, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel), whose reappearance uncovers secrets in Faith's background and will force audiences to ask the question: "Who is Faith Howells?." Faith's ordeal across the series transforms her from a stay-at-home, fun-loving and carefree mother to detective, action hero and lover. She takes risks and gambles to keep her family out of danger and finds a new inner strength. Two weeks away from their divorce and a hearing that will determine their children's future custody, Faith and her husband, Evan (Bradley Freegard, Under Milk Wood) are at loggerheads. Refusing to let go, Evan is insanely jealous of Faith's burgeoning love affair with Steve Baldini (Mark Lewis Jones, Gangs of London, The Crown) and fearful that they intend to start a new life together. Meanwhile, Faith and Cerys (Hannah Daniel, Hinterland) have established a new law firm and take on the case of 14-year-old Osian Taylor, who is suffering from an aggressive brain tumor that his doctors have declared too advanced to operate on. While dealing with the trauma her imminent divorce is inflicting on her daughters, 14-year-old Alys (Demi Letherby) and 11-year-old Megan (Lacey Jones) as well as all the pressures of work, Faith faces an even bigger and far more terrifying problem when her long estranged mother, Rose reappears, intent on wreaking maximum revenge for an event which remains a dark, buried secret between them. Navigating increasingly impossible dilemmas and for once not able to give all those she loves what they need, Faith heads towards a final and devastating confrontation with Rose which will transform her life forever. Season three will premiere exclusively in the U.S. a few weeks after its UK launch on BBC One. The English and Welsh language versions of the new season were filmed concurrently - the Welsh version premiered on November 1, 2020 on S4C. Keeping Faith's season one broke records for attracting nearly 10 million views on the BBC iPlayer, becoming its most viewed non-network show when it was made available in April 2018. In 2018, Season 1, Episode 1 was number 4 of top 10 BBC iPlayer programs for that year (with nearly 4 million views.) Keeping Faith was originally developed by S4C as Un Bore Mercher. Created by Matthew Hall. Produced for BBC Wales and S4C by Vox Pictures, in association with APC and Nevision. Directed by Pip Broughton and Judith Dine, written by Matthew Hall and Pip Broughton, and produced by Pip Broughton and Llyr Morus.

Manhunt

Manhunt is an American drama anthology television series created by Andrew Sodroski, Jim Clemente, and Tony Gittelson. Initially commissioned as a television miniseries starring Sam Worthington and Paul Bettany, it depicted a fictionalized account of the FBI's hunt for the Unabomber and premiered on Discovery Channel on August 1, 2017. On July 17, 2018, it was reported that Charter Communications was in advanced negotiations with the series' producers to pick up the series, now considered an anthology series, for two seasons to be aired on their Spectrum cable service. Because COVID-19 has caused a delay for the production of CBS’ regular shows, the network picked up the rights to air season two. Will the additional exposure and revenue help Manhunt be renewed for a third season, with a new true-crime tale or, will it be cancelled? The first of these potential seasons reportedly would follow Eric Rudolph, who was the perpetrator of the Centennial Olympic Park bombing. On January 18, 2020, it was announced that the second season, titled Manhunt: Deadly Games, would premiere on February 3, 2020. A true-crime anthology series, the second season of Manhunt, subtitled Deadly Games, stars Cameron Britton, Jack Huston, Gethin Anthony, Carla Gugino, Arliss Howard, Kelly Jenrette, and Judith Light. Season two follows one of the most complex manhunts on American soil following the deadly terrorist attack at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta. Security guard Richard Jewell (Britton) is lauded as a national hero after he discovers a massive bomb at the Games and saves hundreds of lives by clearing the area. However, his public identity as a brave citizen quickly erodes when the FBI and the news media, led by driven crime reporter Kathy Scruggs (Gugino), falsely accuse him of being the bomber. As Jewell and his mother Bobi (Light) fight to clear his name, the real perpetrator, Eric Rudolph (Huston), remains at large and undetected as he carries out a series of bombings.
