Bits & Pieces: The Met Gala Edition

Crime + Investigation is launching a brand new documentary series, I Am a Killer. Premiering on Tuesday 29th May at 9pm the series gives a fascinating and in-depth insight into the stories of prisoners on death row in America, awaiting their fate. Showing that there are multiple sides to every story, each one-hour episode profiles ten prisoners convicted of capital murder and sentenced to death. As a network’s first, the show will premiere with the first episode being break free.

A wildly funny and deeply moving tribuyte to classic cinema directed by the Academy Award®-nominated MICHEL HAZANAVICIUS (The Artist), REDOUBTABLE follows iconic French New Wave director Jean-Luc Godard (LOUIS GARREL, The Dreamers) the leading filmmaker of his generation. He’s shooting La Chinoise with the woman he loves, Anne Wiazemsky (STACY MARTIN, Nymphomaniac Vols I and II), 20 years his junior. They are happy, attractive and in love.

Fifty years ago a mass murder was committed in the small Florida town of Arcadia. The victims were all children in the same family of African-American citrus pickers. Their father James Richardson was convicted of the crime and sentenced to death. More than 20 years and a series of unprecedented miracles followed in order to set him free. Upon his release he became a National celebrity – supposedly once the rights to his life story were used to make a hit film and his new career as a public speaker took off he’d be set for life. After the initial fanfare subsided, however, he was left penniless and alone in an unfamiliar world by his former celebrity champions, and given no help from the State that robbed him of the majority of his life while the true killer of his children remained free. Now, in the present day, James Richardson travels back to Florida in the hopes of receiving a glimmer of justice from a State which took his life away. This film represents a multi-generational effort to diagram this story from beginning to end, in the hopes that we can one day learn how to prevent it from ever happening again.

As this Netflix (semi) original series returns on May 29th, the Bluths are back together, and finally getting the award they think they deserve – for family of the year. A development which will help Lindsay as she begins her campaign for Congress, to become ‘part of the problem’. But whatever happens, Michael will always come back to save the family. Probably.

When the 2008 financial crash happened, Nobu Su lost everything. And everything for him meant several billion dollars.. He felt cheated, believing that rivals were out to get revenge on perceived business slights, leaving him to sink like the rusting hulk of an old ship. And much more disturbing, he genuinely believes that The Royal Bank of Scotland hijacked his account and swindled him out of billions of pounds. Since 2008 he has been on a one man crusade to understand what went wrong and who was to blame; himself, the banks, his rival ship owners or the system?

In 1972, former US diplomat, Mason Skiles (Jon Hamm), was caught up in a terrorist attack that changed his life forever. 10 years later, whilst working as a mediator in Boston, Skiles receives an unwanted invitation to visit Beirut, a territory plagued by war and violence. Quickly dragged back into the system he hastily left, Mason is assigned a mission by CIA Agent Donald Gaines (Dean Norris; Breaking Bad) of negotiating a swap with a terrorist group: a kidnapped American CIA agent for a terrorist leader. Obligated to cooperate, Skiles is assigned a cultural attaché (Rosamund Pike) to help navigate the city. Unravelling clues and uncovering political agendas along the way, the duo discover that relationships between America, Palestine and Israel may be more convoluted, and even more corrupt, than first thought… From the writer of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and The Bourne Identity, THE NEGOTIATOR is a suspenseful drama that questions government loyalties, how far one person is willing to push themselves in the pursuit of justice and where the moral line in the sand is drawn when faced with the severest of situations. Clandestine operations and a web of intrigue intertwine as Jon Hamm delivers his “best work yet” (Deadline).
