2019 has already been a stellar year for Two Brothers – with three shows airing simultaneously within the first three months of 2019. BBC One thriller #Baptiste penned by Jack and Harry Williams, sees the welcome return of #TheMissing fan favourite Tchéky Karyo as detective Julien Baptiste. ITV’s new four part thriller series #Cheat by Gaby Hull, starring Katherine Kelly & Molly Windsor. And the sensational return of Phoebe-Waller Bridge’s #Fleabag to BBC Three and BBC One.
Baptiste is a thrilling six-part drama set in the murky underworld of Amsterdam. Tchéky Karyo reprises his role as the insightful but stubborn French investigator Julien Baptiste. Baptiste is a nail-biting ride full of twists and turns where nothing and nobody are as they first seem. The Night Manager and Bird Box star Tom Hollander and Call the Midwife’s Jessica Raine, head up the stellar cast of a series the critics are calling “taut and compelling” with “the air of a graphic novel”. The final episode airs on BBC One, 9pm on Sunday 24th March.
Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s Bafta-winning BBC comedy Fleabag is back on our screens for a second series. Joyful, bleak, poignant and sucker-punch funny, the original cast including Sian Clifford and Oscar winner Olivia Colman, are joined by a host of new characters including Kristin Scott Thomas, Fiona Shaw and Andrew Scott.The eponymous Fleabag returns in ep one, joining an uncomfortable family dinner to celebrate Godmother and Dad’s engagement. Alongside familiar faces – uptight sister Claire, and her alcoholic husband Martin, Fleabag find herself intrigued by Godmother’s new Priest. The evening comes to a tempestuous end however, when an unexpected attack brings old tensions bubbling to the surface. With five star reviews across the board, Fleabag Series Two is not to be missed – episodes are online Mondays from 10am on BBC Three and air that same evening on BBC One at 10:35pm until the final ep on April 8th.
The four-part mini-series Cheat written Gaby Hull has been unfolding on ITV this week with the final episode airing at 9pm on Thursday 14th March. At the heart of the drama is the dangerous relationship between university professor Leah (Katherine Kelly), and her student Rose (Molly Windsor), when, what begins as a seemingly open and shut case of academic deception, quickly spirals out of control, ending in fatal consequences, and triggering a devastating sequence of events that threaten to engulf them both.
And there’s more excitement to come from the Two Brothers team this year when Harry & Jack’s new thriller #TheWidow starring Kate Beckinsale comes to ITV & Amazon, alongside brand new 6 part comedy series Back to Life written by Daisy Haggard and Laura Solon for BBC Three.
