New to Acorn TV in June

Crossroads will be the latest European whodunit to stream here when it premieres next month on Acorn TV.

The six-part French-Belgium-German co-pro is named after its sleuth, Sophie Cross (Alexia Barlier), a brilliant attorney whose five-year-old son disappears one summer’s day at the beach.

Thomas Jouannet co-stars as her police-commissioner husband; it will stream Fridays from May 20.

Also new will be:

  • Newton’s Law (June 6), a quirky 2017 Australian legal dramedy starring Claudia Karvan from the team behind Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries
  • Crownies (June 13), a 2011 prequel to courtroom drama Janet King set in the Office of Public Prosecutions, and
  • S3 of Garage Sale Mysteries (June 27).

The New York Times thought Newtown’s Law a “comic (and Australian) Good Wife ... good escapist fun, with better-than-usual writing and performances,” while The Guardian said: “If you’ve been waiting for a buck against the trend of ‘difficult’ television, you’ll be happy with Newton’s Law.

“Pitched as a softer, sweeter Rake meets SeaChange, the show is exactly what you’d expect from a weeknight ABC legal family drama from SeaChange’s creator.”

    Is there an episode 7? They never found their son in episode 6.

  2. I’m afraid there are only 6 eps in S1. Perhaps the producers were holding out for a S2 …
