Series Premiere: February 8, 2019
Amazon: British thriller that aired in the UK under the title Strangers in which John Simm (Life on Mars) portrays a professor whose life is thrown into chaos following his wife’s mysterious death in Hong Kong. His fear of flying has kept him isolated in London, despite his wife living and working overseas for half her life. Now, he’s forced to take a trip to identify his wife’s body, whereupon he discovers a shocking truth that will lead him through crime & conspiracy. Features some prestige British talent alongside Simm, including Harry Potter’s Cho Chang, Katie Leung, Emilia Fox (Inside No. 9), and Tim McInnerny (Blackadder). This will also mark the first English-speaking role for the great Hong Kong actor Anthony Wong, best known for his work on the action masterpieces Hard Boiled and Infernal Affairs. At eight episodes, the series has a little more breathing room than Brit miniseries are usually used to, but the gripping premise promises tight thrills and some shocking revelations.
