Any news on the next instalment of This Is England? This Is England 90 seems overdue.

Xbox Entertainment Studios is partnering with Channel 4 to develop Humans, a new sci-fi TV show.

Eight hour-long episodes will "share a premiere window" in 2015 on Channel 4 in the UK and on Xbox in North America, Microsoft said. There's no details of whether the series will also be available to watch on Xbox here.
We've asked Microsoft for comment.

Humans is set in an alternate present day where people share their homes with robotic servants named Synths. The show will follow an overworked father who buys a refurbished second-hand Synth that houses a secret.

The series is a remake of Real Humans, a successful Swedish series that premiered back in 2012. This English-language version is being scripted by Spooks writers Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley.

"In Humans, Sam and Jon have not only crafted an ingenious and imaginative thriller, but they're also asking big, thought-provoking questions about how we live," Channel 4 drama boss Piers Wenger said.

"I'm thrilled to be working once again with the team at Kudos and to be partnering with Xbox to bring this extraordinary and epic series to the screen. This is the first co-production commission to benefit from Channel 4's increased investment in drama and reaffirms our commitment to ambitious, highly original drama series."

Humans is the second TV commitment from Microsoft after the much-hyped Halo TV series - of which Steven Spielberg will have some kind of involvement.

Sky and Discovery have bought Channel 5 off Richard Desmond (Daily Star), regulatory approval permitting. Might actually be a half decent channel now.

I was surprised how far Desmond managed to drag down Channel 5.

Just started watching Sherlock this morning, and finished Season one not long after. The first episode was brilliant. The following two were good, but I was a bit disappointed the humour didn't carry on to the following two episodes. Either way, it was definitely a good series, and i'm looking forward to starting Season 2 soon too.

The creative juices really flowing over at ITV for their new breakfast show...

I swear this isn't something I just knocked up in MS Paint. I mean strawberry float, if that's the best they've got I think I'd rather go back to bed.

Has anyone been watching that program done by the chap from educating essex? Mr Drew's school for boys.
If I spoke to my parents like that when I was their age, I'd have gotten a good smack.

Gritty Italian crime drama based on Robert Saviano's book of the same name which the New York Times dubbed "the most important book to come out of Italy in years".

Starts Monday 4th August at 9pm on Sky Atlantic

Gomorrah is the inside story of fierce Neapolitan crime organisation the Camorra, as seen through the eyes of Ciro (Marco D'Amore), the obedient and self-confident right-hand man of the clan's godfather whose loyalty is tested to its limits.
Acclaimed Romanzo Criminale writer and director Stefano Sollima is responsible for the overall art direction and also directs multiple episodes of the show, which is shot on location in and around Naples, Barcelona, Milan and Ferrara.




12 episodes, already renewed for 2nd season. Positive review from Variety - http://variety.com/2014/tv/reviews/tv-r ... 201195153/

Ok, me and the missus watched Lurhor over the last few days. It was great, shame it ended. Any recommendations on something similar?

I really want to like it, but it does come off as a poor man's Police Squad.
