COMING SOON TO SoHo: MYTHOLOGICAL CREATURES, VANISHING SCHOOLGIRLS AND AN IMPENDING APOCALYPSE

Pre-apocalyptic cyber-crime, outback intrigue and otherworldly deity-driven drama head to SoHo thanks to a content deal with FremantleMedia International.

Fans of dark drama are in for a triple treat in 2018 with three great dramas destined for SKY’s premium entertainment channel SoHo where, for less than $10 a month, SKY basic customers can access some of the hottest shows on earth.

Born from the creative mind of Wellington-based author Neil Cross (Luther), comes the highly-anticipated thriller Hard Sun. Set in contemporary London two detectives stumble upon proof that the world is facing certain destruction while investigating a murder. Starring Jim Sturgess (The Way Back) and Agyness Deyn (Sunset Song), this six-part thriller is set to join SoHo’s February line-up.

Making its New Zealand television debut, is the stunning adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods. When Shadow Moon is hired as a bodyguard by the effusive Mr Wednesday he is soon immersed in the hidden world, where magic is real, war brews between Old Gods and New, and absolutely nothing is as it seems. With outstanding performances from Ian McShane (Deadwood) and Ricky Whittle (Hollyoaks), this eight-part stunner is also set to join the February line-up.

Later in the year, SoHo will welcome the much anticipated adaptation of Joan Lindsay’s novel Picnic At Hanging Rock, starring Natalie Dormer (Game of Thrones) as headmistress Mrs Hester Appleyard. Commissioned by Australian broadcaster Foxtel, with production investment from Screen Australia and Film Vic, this stylish reimagining focusses on the baffling disappearance of three schoolgirls and one teacher during a Valentine’s Day picnic in 1900. Currently in post-production, broadcast details will be released next year.
