*Netflix have released the trailer for their upcoming Harlan Coben adaptation ‘Stay Close’. The Good Fight’s Cush Jumbo leads an all star cast which includes Richard Armitage, James Nesbitt, Jo Joyner and Sarah Parish for the twisty thriller. The eight-part drama follows three people living comfortable (yet not entirely satisfactory) lives, who are all concealing dark secrets. The three individuals are Megan (Jumbo), a working mum of three; Ray (Armitage), a failed documentary photographer; and Broome (Nesbitt), a detective haunted by a missing person’s cold case. However, when Megan’s old friend Lorraine (Parish) delivers some shocking news, all three of their lives will be impacted, as the moments from their past return to haunt them.

The series will be available on Netflix Worldwide from Friday 31st December.

*The first images have been released for upcoming factual drama Then Barbara Met Alan, starring Ruth Madeley and Arthur Hughes. Written by multiple Bafta-winner Jack Thorne and award-winning actor-turned-writer Genevieve Barr, Then Barbara Met Alan tells the story through the eyes of Barbara Lisicki (Ruth Madeley) and Alan Holdsworth (newcomer Arthur Hughes), two disabled cabaret performers who met at a gig in 1989 and would go on to become the driving force behind DAN – the Direct Action Network, whose fearless and coordinated protests pushed the campaign for disabled rights into the spotlight.

The one-off drama is expected on the BBC in 2022.

*Steve Martin has shared a photo from the set of Only Murders in the Building as he reunites with Martin Short and Selina Gomez for season 2 of the HULU/Disney+ comedy thriller. 

The news comes as it was announced that actor and model  Cara Delevingne has been cast as a series regular in Season 2.  She will play Alice, a sophisticated art world insider who becomes enmeshed in the mystery. 

The series airs on HULU in the US and Disney+ in the UK and is expected to return in 2022.
