TV: Chernobyl, Riviera 2 and Alan Carr's new panel show lead Sky and NOW TV highlights this May
This May, Sky and NOW TV bring you a whole host of treats to enjoy, including the second season of Sky Atlantic’s smash hit original drama Riviera and a huge new film panel show, hosted by Alan Carr.
There’s Something About Movies (Sky One)
From the makers of the BAFTA award-winning A League of Their Own comes a blockbusting new panel show hosted by Alan Carr. Filmed at the legendary Pinewood Studios, Britain’s funniest film buffs compete to show off their screen smarts and movie-trivia mastery. Expect movie trivia, spectacular location stunts and recreations of classic movie scenes live in the studio.
Riviera 2 (Sky Atlantic)
More glamour, More intrigue. More betrayal. Sky’s most successful original production to date returns as Georgina fixes her goals on getting away with murder. Julia Stiles and the rest of the returning cast are joined by Will Arnett, Juliet Stevenson, Poppy Delevigne and Jack Fox as Georgina’s troubled past in America comes to pay her a visit. More sun-soaked scandals and secrets lie in store as we head back to the world of excess. More is more.
Chernobyl (Sky Atlantic)
While we may never know the true human cost, some organisations estimate hundreds of thousands lost their lives due to the disaster at Chernobyl. The official Soviet death toll, unchanged since 1987, is 31. The first co-production between Sky Original Productions and HBO, Chernobyl tells the story of the worst man-made catastrophe in history, and the sacrifices of the brave men and women who saved Europe from unimaginable disaster. Starring Stellan Skarsgård, Emily Watson, Jessie Buckley and Jared Harris, the five-part miniseries is a tale of lies and cowardice, courage and conviction, and human failure and human nobility
Master of Photography (Sky Arts)
The first European TV show dedicated to the world of photography is back for its fourth season. The best talents from all over Europe will have to prove to a jury of world-renowned photographers, including Elisabeth Biondi, Mark Sealy and Oliviero Toscani, that they have the creativity, instinct and versatility to win the final prize of € 100,000 and the coveted title of Master of Photography. What’s more, finalists will get a chance to show their photographs at the prestigious Cortona on the Move photographic event in Italy, and one worthy contestant will be invited for an internship at Oliveiro Toscani’s creative hub, Fabrica.
Catch these shows via Sky TV or NOW TV with an entertainment pass.
