We alternately follow the story from two sides; that of Superman TV star George Reeves, who is carrying on a not so secret affair with Toni Mannix, the wife of a powerful, ill-tempered MGM executive; and that of private dick Simo (the ritual noirish fall guy), who is later hired to investigate Reeves' supposed suicide. Simo found few Hollywood insiders ready to cooperate and his digging discovered plenty to suggest that the actor did not take his own life. Hollywood Land is a dark murder mystery find out more...

A masterful adaptation of David Peace's Ellroy-esque noir trilogy. In '1974', the first chapter, a rookie journalist looks to solve the increasingly vexing case of a serial killer on the loose. A bleak vision of corruption in an emphatically isolated 'North', which raises the game for levels of darkness in TV drama. Andrew Garfield gives a captivating performance as the idealistic journalist in way over his head. Highly recommended. find out more...
