Fresh from Amazon’s Golden Globe winning TV series Goliath, David E. Kelley brings his new series to Sky this month, courtesy of HBO. With Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon in front of the camera and Dallas Buyers Club helmer Jean-Marc Vallée behind, it’s the month’s big new arrival for Sky Atlantic fans. While the rest of March may seem relatively thin on the ground, though, that’s largely a result of February’s stuffed line-up, with series continuing across every day of the week that include The Walking Dead, Legion, Billions, 24: Legacy and The CW’s quartet of DC superhero shows.
Sky Cinema has a similarly lightweight month ahead, but with the Ghostbusters reboot and Meryl Streep on Oscar-nominated form in Florence Foster Jenkins, there are still some treats to look forward to.
Don’t have Sky? You can stream all of the above live and on-demand through NOW TV, Sky’s contract-free VOD service, which costs £6.99 a month. For more information, click here.
Here’s what’s coming soon to Sky and NOW TV in March 2017:
