We might be back in lockdown, but that’s no excuse to be dreary, as Acorn TV has plenty of fantastic new content to keep you excited this March.
New content releasing on Acorn TV in March includes:
The Miniaturist – Arriving Monday 1 March
This fascinating costume drama, based on the internationally best-selling
novel, sees Anya Taylor-Joy (The Queen’s Gambit, Split, The Witch) as 18-year-old Petronella Oortman who arrives in Amsterdam to become the wife of a wealthy merchant.
Instead of her future beau, Petronella is met by his standoffish sister
(Romola Garai, Atonement, I Capture the Castle) and realises that her fairytale may be much darker than she had imagined.
An intricate dollhouse gifted by her betrothed and gradually furnished by a mysterious miniaturist seems to mirror her real home, predicting the future in a troubling fashion to reveal dark secrets within its walls.
Balthazar, Series 2 – Arriving Monday 1 March
Forensic Pathologist Raphaël Balthazar (Tomer Sisley, Messiah, We’re the Millers) makes the dead speak like no one else in this slick procedural.
Series 2 sees Balthazar, along with partner and foil Chief Inspector Hélène Bach (Hélène de Fougerolles, The Beach, Mutants), face the most despicable and grotesque crimes imaginable, all while Balthazar is still on the hunt for his wife’s killer.
Finding Joy, Season 2 – Arriving Monday 15 March
Triple-threat Amy Huberman (Striking Out, Cold Feet) returns as creator, writer and star in the second series of this hilarious Irish comedy.
Still single, still looking for joy in all the wrong places and encouraged by her previous success as short-term cover for a happiness blogger, Series 2 sees Joy on a mission to build her own online brand.
With a small team, very little sponsorship and her home life falling apart, Joy subjects herself to awkward and downright bizarre situations in her quest for online fame.
Total Control – Arriving Monday 22 March
This thrilling political drama sees Alex (Deborah Mailman, Wolf Creek, Offspring), a charismatic aboriginal woman, thrust into the national spotlight after fearlessly confronting an active shooter.
The embattled Australian prime minister Rachel Anderson (Academy
Award® nominee Rachel Griffiths, Hacksaw Ridge, Saving Mr. Banks) recruits Alex as a senator hoping to capitalise on her popularity to further her own agenda. Unfortunately for the PM, Alex has her own plans and is determined to make a real difference – far from the naïve puppet that Rachel was banking on.
