New and returning series – details

The Rook S1 Virgin 30/06/2019
“This London-set series centers on a young woman pursued by shadowy paranormal adversaries while grappling with extraordinary abilities of her own”.

Waco S1/LS Alibi 01/07/2019
“On February 28, 1993, the eyes of the world suddenly converged on a small religious community just outside Waco, Texas when the FBI conducted a raid on charismatic cult leader David Koresh (Taylor Kitsch) and his devoted followers. 51 days later, a fire engulfed the compound, killing 76 men, women and children inside. What transpired over those 51 days remains one of the most misunderstood stories in American history. Waco has come to evoke different ideas to different people – government recklessness, religious fanaticism, conspiracy theories, and cover-ups. But what really happened at Waco?”

“David Haller, a.k.a. Legion, is a haunted man with power beyond comprehension. His power does not come free, but at the steep cost of David’s mind. Plagued by numerous split personalities – each commanding a different aspect of his power – David is trying to find his way back to sanity. But he’s getting tired and about to give up until he meets the girl of his dreams”. Third and final season of the FX drama.
