Acorn TV’s Raunchy British Comedy Returns

– Raised by Wolves, Series 2 –

Makes Exclusive U.S. Premiere on Monday, November 21, 2016

 

Loosely based on the childhoods of series creators Caitlin Moran (bestselling author of “How to be a Woman”) and Caroline Moran, the raunchy modern comedy series Raised by Wolves, Series 2 makes its U.S. Premiere exclusively on Acorn TV on Monday, November 21, 2016. Raised by Wolves follows six socially-isolated siblings and their acerbic, highly capable and semi-legendary mother, Della Garry, as the fall-out from Britain’s austerity drive really starts to hit home. Available at Acorn.TV and on a variety of devices, Acorn TV is the premier streaming service for world-class television from Britain and beyond from RLJ Entertainment (NASDAQ: RLJE). A U.S. version of the series is in development from Oscar®-winner Diablo Cody (Juno).

Remorseless single parent Della Garry (Rebekah Stanton, Wallander, State of Play, Doctor Who) and her six children continue their social experiment of home-schooling whilst preparing for the Apocalypse – in Wolverhampton. In Series 2, hormonal 16-year-old horn-bomb Germaine (Helen Monks, Upstart Crow) continues to desecrate every societal norm, while her depressed intellectual sister Aretha (Alexa Davies, Detectorists, Cradle to Grave) becomes even more misanthropic. Grampy (Philip Jackson, Agatha Christie’s Poirot, Boomers) also starts enjoying his divorce in a very visceral manner. The series features strong language and adult humor.

 U.S. Premiere: Monday, Nov. 21, 2016                                   Episodes: 6 (Approx. 22 mins. each)

 

 

Acorn TV’s addicitive Aussie period drama returns

A PLACE TO CALL HOME, SEASON 4

Exclusive U.S. Premiere beginning Thanksgiving Day, November 24, 2016

Starring Marta Dusseldorp (A Place to Call Home, Jack Irish),

Noni Hazlehurst (Little Fish), Jenni Baird (The 4400), and David Berry (Outlander)

Called an Aussie Downton Abbey, the new season of the addictive period drama A Place to Call Home, Season 4 makes its exclusive U.S. Premiere on Acorn TV beginning Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 24 with the first two episodes; additional episodes will be added on consecutive Mondays with the final episodes added on Christmas Day, Sun., Dec. 25th. Against the backdrop of post-World War II Australia, A Place to Call Home stars Marta Dusseldorp (Jack Irish, Janet King) as Sarah Adams, a nurse who becomes involved in the affairs of the wealthy Bligh family. Dealing with themes such as anti-Semitism, sexuality, and social class, this rich and meaningful, high-quality production has been hailed as one of the best television series of 2015 by The Wall Street Journal. All previous seasons are available to watch anytime on Acorn TV, the premier streaming service for world class television from Britain and beyond from RLJ Entertainment (NASDAQ: RLJE). The first three seasons are also on DVD and syndicated to public television stations across the country through American Public Television (APT).

A Place To Call Home is a sweeping romantic drama set in 1950s rural Australia. Created by Bevan Lee, the series follows the lives of the Blighs, a wealthy and complicated pastoralist family, who lives in Inverness. Season 4 will focus on the relationships between the characters as affected by two contrasting social issues. First, the conservative wave of fear generated by the “Reds Under the Beds” scare surrounding The Petrov Affair. Second, the wave of liberal change that opened up new social and moral choices.

A Place to Call Home’s impressive ensemble cast includes Craig Hall (The Hobbit), Brett Climo (Snowy River: The McGregor Saga), Abby Earl (The Great Mint Swindle), Noni Hazlehurst (Little Fish), Aldo Mignone (Danger 5), Arianwen Parkes-Lockwood (Underbelly), Jenni Baird (The 4400), and David Berry (Outlander, Home and Away).
