As the nights draw in things are hotting up on NOW TV with some massive tv and movie treats lined up.
Here are some of the best…
Two Weeks to Live
Maisie Williams stars in this Sky original comedy as Kim Stokes, a strange young misfit raised in remote isolation by her survivalist mother Tina (Sian Clifford). She’s less like a young woman and more like a great white shark who can strip a Smith & Wesson
pistol in 6 seconds.
Now all grown up, Kim sets out into the real world for the first time on a secret mission. But after encountering hapless brothers Nicky and Jay at their local pub, a seemingly harmless prank sets in motion a series of events that sees them all on the run from murderous gangsters.

The Third Day
Jude Law and Naomie Harris star in The Third Day, the first original drama to be produced by Sky’s new production house, Sky Studios, in partnership with Plan B Entertainment. This unique story is told over six episodes and in two distinct, but interconnected halves; ‘Summer’, following Sam (Law), after he is drawn to a mysterious island off the British coast
inhabited by a group of islanders set on preserving their traditions at any cost; and ‘Winter’, following Helen (Harris), who also comes to the island seeking answers, but whose arrival precipitates a fractious battle to decide its fate.
English National Opera – Drive & Live
Sky Arts presents exclusive world-first coverage of the English National Opera’s return to live performances in front of an audience – albeit in a way that has not been attempted before. The ENO will present a live opera performances of Puccini’s La bohéme that audiences can safely drive to and enjoy a super-sized live opera performance from
their own vehicles.
Renée Zellweger won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her committed performance as the legendary Hollywood starlet Judy Garland in this biopic set in the days where her star began to wane.
It is the Winter of 1968 and Garland has arrived in Swinging London to perform a five-week sold-out run at The Talk of the Town. It may have been 30 years since she shot to global stardom in The Wizard of Oz, but if her voice has weakened, its dramatic intensity has only grown. Featuring some of her best-known songs, the film celebrates the voice, the
capacity for love, and the sheer pizzazz of “the world’s greatest entertainer.”
Other films coming to NOW TV in September include The Good Liar, Terminator: Dark Fate and Le Mans 66.
