New to AMC+/Acorn TV in September

AMC+ digs deep into its vault to host next month’s premiere of Lodge 49.

The critically-adored comedy ran from 2018-2019 on the AMC channel in the US, where Rotten Tomatoes said it “takes a surreal journey into the television dreamscape that can prove quite rewarding for viewers who stick with it”.

The series bills itself as a “modern fable set in Long Beach, California about an optimistic ex-surfer, Dud (Wyatt Russell, 22 Jump Street), who is drifting after the death of his father and collapse of the family business.

“Dud finds himself at a rundown fraternal lodge where ‘Luminous Knight’ of the order, Ernie (Brent Jennings, Insecure), welcomes him into a world of cheap beer, easy camaraderie and mysteries that may put Dud on the path to recover the life he’s lost.”

Both seasons can be binged from September 7.

AMC+ also will stream Thick Skin (September 20), a SundanceTV documentary about four plus-sized women in Philadelphia dealing with social prejudice about their weight.

Debuting on Acorn TV, which can be bundled with AMC+ or subscribed to separately, is Mrs Sidhu Investigates (September 18).

Meera Syal (The Kumars at No. 42) plays a high-end caterer with a taste for crime who solves murders and other ghastly crimes amongst the affluent residents of Berkshire:

A lifetime of being an “Indian Aunty,” invisible to the elite, has sharpened her skills as an investigator: an instinct for truth, a warmth with people and a persistent sense of nosiness. Recently widowed, Mrs. Sidhu juggles her new catering business with wrangling her wayward son, Tez (Gurjeet Singh), all while serving up justice to those who believe they are above the law. Her forays into crime see her form an unofficial partnership with the world-weary DCI Burton (Line of Duty’s Craig Parkinson), who reluctantly accepts that together, they’re an unbeatable crime fighting duo, much to the bemusement of his partner, DS Mint (Death in Paradise’s Naana Agyei-Ampadu).

It was adapted from a BBC Radio 4 comedy series and premieres here the same time as other Acorn TV markets.

Returning for new seasons on September 4 are London Kills S3 and Grantchester S7.
