Saturday Night Line-up

Murder in Suburbia: Season 2

Saturdays at 8 and 8:50 p.m.
Murder in Suburbia
Detective Inspector Kate “Ash” Ashurst (Caroline Catz), and Detective Sergeant Emma “Scribbs” Scribbins (Lisa Faulkner), make up the sexy, sassy, crime-busting duo who solve murders in the sleepy suburban town of Middleford in this U.K. crime drama.

Hinterland: Season 1

Saturdays at 9:40 p.m.
Hinterland
The noir crime drama is set in the scenic, centuries-old town of Aberystwyth, Wales. The area is a natural crucible of colliding worlds – a place where history, myth and tradition come face-to-face with modern life – but its panoramic vistas and quaint facade hide a multitude of sins. Into this realm steps the enigmatic DCI Tom Mathias (Richard Harrington – Poldark), a brilliant but troubled man on the run from his past. Together with his equally intelligent and complex partner DI Mared Rhys (Mali Harries- Foyle’s War), Mathias tackles mystifying murder cases that take viewers from the windswept sand dunes of the Welsh coastline to the badlands and beyond.

And Then There Were None

Starting September 29

And Then There Were Noneis a miniseries based on Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None, one of the best-selling crime novels of all time, with 100 million copies sold worldwide. Set in 1939 as Europe teeters on the brink of war, the story follows ten strangers with dubious pasts who are lured to Soldier Island, an isolated rock near the Devon coast in southern England. Cut off from the mainland, with their hosts mysteriously absent, they are each accused of a terrible crime. When members of the party start to mysteriously die, the others realize they may be harboring a murderer among their number. Who will survive? And, who is the killer? And Then There Were None boasts an all-star cast also including Aidan Turner (Poldark), Sam Neill (Jurrasic Park), Charles Dance (Game of Thrones), Miranda Richardson (Harry Potter), Noah Taylor (Peaky Blinders), Burn Gorman (Torchwood), and Anna Maxwell Martin (The Bletchley Circle).
