We already knew Sullivan Stapleton’s new show Blindspot was heading to Sky Living (currently slated for Nov 2015), but now they have also announced the channel has picked up Limitless, the tv continuation of the Bradley Cooper movie, and The Catch from tv hit factory Shonda Rhimes.
Blindspot stars Thor’s Lady Sif, Jaimie Alexander, as Jane Doe. A lady who is covered in tattoos and delivered naked in a bag to FBI agent Kurt Weller (Sullivan Stapleton of Sky 1’s Strike Back fame) with no memory of how she got there, or why she was sent. Along with an assistant director of the FBI played by Broadchurch’s Marianne Jean-Baptiste, the group have to figure out who Jane is, and why she is covered in cryptic tattoos. Coming to Sky Living Nov 2015.
From Shonda Rhimes’s ShondaLand production company comes The Catch, due to land on Sky Living in 2016. The show stars Mireille Enos (US version of the The Killing) as Alice Martin, a fraud investigator who’s unfortunately not realised she’s about to become a victim of fraud by her own husband (Peter Krause – Six Feet Under, Parenthood, Dirty Sexy Money). No a good CV day… She’s determined to find and stop him before he wrecks her life and career. Coming to Sky Living in 2016.
Limitless is a continuation from the 2011 Bradley Cooper film, and stars Jake McDorman (American Sniper, US version of Shameless) as down-on-his-luck musician Brian Finch who discovers the brain-boosting power of the infamous NZT. This transformation from musician to genius puts him on the FBI’s radar, who pressgang him into solving complex cases for them. He’s more effective than all the Bureau’s other agents combined, making him the FBI’s greatest asset. But what they don’t know is that Brian also has a secret relationship with an NZT-using presidential hopeful with his own plans for his new protégé… Coming to Sky Living… at some point (I suspect 2016, but we don’t have a date for this yet!) ;)
