Hanna: Season 2 – 3rd July
Based on Joe Wright’s acclaimed 2011 film – and written by David Farr (The Night Manager), who co-wrote the original feature – it stars Esmé Creed-Miles as the 15-year-old, who was raised in total seclusion in the remote woods of Eastern Europe. She spent her entire young life training to fight those who hunt her and her mercenary father, Erik Heller (Joel Kinnaman). Her survivalist skills are finally tested when she and Erik are separated upon their discovery by a rogue CIA operative, Marissa Wiegler (Mireille Enos), and her team of agents. Season 2 comprises eight episodes and follows her journey as she evades the relentless pursuit of a sinister government agency and tries to unearth the truth behind who she is.
Alias: Season 1 to 5 – 6th July
J.J. Abrams’ TV series stars Jennifer Garner as Sydney, a student who is recruited to secret organisation SD-6. When she discovers it is a global criminal group, rather than the CIA as her recruiter claimed, she turns into a double-agent for the good guys – a triple-identity cover-up that causes havoc with her personal life, as everyone around her is drawn into the world of espionage. Cameos across the five seasons include everyone from Christian Slater and Rutger Hauer to Faye Dunaway and David Cronenberg.

The two-part stand-up special features the Grammy-nominated, Emmy Award-winning and New York Times best-selling author, actor and comedian Jim Gaffigan (The Senator) as he embarks on a seemingly impossible quest: to land in a country with no material, experience the culture and food, and then write and perform all-new material, all in one visit.
