New to AMC+ and Acorn TV in June

A four-part docuseries about a popular headmaster who hypnotised his students with fatal consequences will stream on AMC+ from June 15.

True Crime Story: Look Into My Eyes is the bizarre true story of Dr. George Kenney’s fall from grace after 10 years as a beloved principal at North Port High School in Florida where he practiced hypnosis on students.

In 2011, three teenage students died after a series of suspicious events. When a local media story questioned his involvement, the case exploded into global news.

The series investigates events leading up to these untimely deaths and the tragic aftermath as victims’ families, eyewitnesses, experts, and people involved attempt to unpack what really happened. 

New to AMC+ and Acorn TV from June 12 will be the ninth and final season of Inspector More spin-off Endeavour.

The last three films are set in 1972, when Endeavour investigates a tragedy at the heart of a renowned Oxford orchestra and reopens a case he and the team had long hoped was closed for good.

With Strange making ambitious plans for his future, and Bright setting his sights on retirement, where will this leave Endeavour and Thursday? 

The Telegraph dubbed the denouement “close to pitch perfect” and The Times “beautifully judged“.

The Light in the Hall (AMC+, Acorn TV, June 5) stars Iwan Rheon as Joe Pritchard, who has has spent 18 years in prison for the murder of Ela Roberts but has never revealed where her body is.

When Joe is released, journalist Cat Donato (Alexandra Roach) returns home to uncover the truth about her school friend’s death.

Ela’s mother, Sharon (Joanna Scanlon) is also desperate for answers – and will go to any lengths to get them.

The Guardian praised it as a “tense, unforgiving drama … a wintry thriller to curl up with.”

Another AMC+ and Acorn TV exclusive, Cannes Confidential (June 26), is billed as a blue-sky, romantic crime series set on the Cote d’Azur  starring French TV-drama actor Lucie Lucas (Clem), Jamie Bamber (Strike Back) and singer/actor Tamara Marthe (Profilage).

The series centres on an idealistic, local underdog female cop (Lucas) and an ex-conman (Bamber) who are forced into an unlikely – and surprisingly successful – crime-fighting partnership.

While they solve a murder case in each close-ended episode, the drama’s arc focuses on the the cop’s quest to find the criminals who framed her father, a local-hero police officer who was jailed for a crime he did not commit.
