Sky Witness & Now TV Set August UK Premiere Dates For ‘Instinct’ & ‘9-1-1’

Now TV and rebranded Sky Living channel, Sky Witness, have set August UK premiere dates for two more of their upcoming US dramas it has been announced.

Instinct’ stars Alan Cumming (‘The Good Wife’, ‘Web Therapy’, ‘The X-Men’) as a former CIA operative who is lured back to his old life when the NYPD needs his help to stop a serial killer. Dr. Dylan Reinhart (Cumming) is a gifted author and university professor living a quiet life teaching psychopathic behaviour to packed classes of adoring students. But when tenacious top NYPD detective Lizzie Needham (Bojana Novakovic – ‘Shameless US’) appeals to him to help her catch a serial murderer who is using Dylan’s first book as a tutorial, Dylan is compelled by the case and comes out of retirement.

Helping them is Julian Cousins (Naveen Andrews – ‘Lost’, ‘Sense8’), Dylan’s invaluable CIA comrade who rivals Dylan in brilliance and wit, and can get top-secret dirt on anyone, anywhere, anytime. Lizzie’s boss, Lt. Jasmine Gooden  (Sharon Leal – ‘Supergirl’, ‘Dreamgirls’), is glad to see her best detective finally agree to work with someone on a case, since Lizzie has refused any partner since a tragic event one year ago. But as Dylan feels reenergized tapping into his old skill set, his husband, Andy, is concerned that Dylan’s breaking their pact about putting away his cloak and dagger for good. Though Dylan and Lizzie initially clash, when it comes to catching killers, they realize they will make an ideal team if they both trust their instincts.

The series is an adaptation of the novel ‘Murder Games’ from James Patterson (‘ZOO’) & Howard Roughan.

9-1-1 is a procedural drama from prolific creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk and explores the lives and careers of first responders – cops, paramedics, firefighters – the people who put their lives on the line to save others.

Starring Academy and Emmy Award nominee and Golden Globe winner Angela Bassett (‘American Horror Story’, ‘What’s Love Got to Do with It’), the series is based on the real-life, high-pressure experiences of emergency response providers who are thrust into heart-stopping situations that are equal parts unpredictable, intense and uplifting. These emergency responders must try to balance saving those who are at their most vulnerable with solving the problems in their own lives.

Alongside Bassett, the series stars Emmy Award and Golden Globe-nominated actor Peter Krause (‘The Catch,’ ‘Six Feet Under’) and Emmy Award-nominated actress Connie Britton (‘Nashville,’ ‘Friday Night Lights,’ ‘American Horror Story’). Oliver Stark (‘Into The Badlands’), Aisha Hinds (‘Shots Fired,’ ‘Underground’), Kenneth Choi (‘The People v. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story’) and Rockmond Dunbar (‘Prison Break,’ ‘The Path’) also star as series regulars.

9-1-1‘ comes to Now TV and Sky Witness on Wednesday, 15th August 2018, with ‘Instinct’ arriving on Thursday, 23rd August 2018. Exact times TBC.
