Streamer AMC+ has acquired the rights to a trio of crime dramas launching exclusively in the U.S. on the new streaming bundle service this year. BRON Studios’ and Headline Pictures’ “Kin”, starring Charlie Cox, Clare Dunne and Aidan Gillen (“Game of Thrones”), will launch this fall as an AMC+ Original. All3Media International’s psychological thriller “Too Close”, starring BAFTA-winning actress Emily Watson (“Chernobyl”), will debut later this year, while Lionsgate’s international crime drama “Cold Courage”, starring John Simm (Doctor Who), is slated to premiere the first three episodes on Thursday, March 11.
Currently filming in Dublin, Ireland, “Kin” charts the lives of a fictional Dublin family embroiled in a gangland war and speaks to the enduring unbreakable bonds of blood and family.”
“Too Close” is a three-part drama that centers around forensic psychiatrist Emma Robinson (Watson), who must assess criminal suspect Connie – only to fall victim to Connie’s insightful, yet manipulative nature.
Based on the novels from Finnish journalist Pekka Hiltunen, “Cold Courage” follows two women as they collide during a series of murders in present-day London. Mari, a fierce psychologist, and Lia, a shy graphic artist, are drawn together through the “Studio” – a clandestine group of like-minded people operating off the grid, dedicated to righting the wrongs of the powerful, influential and corrupt.
