New to AMC+ in August

Wrongly Accused, a new documentary series about the greatest miscarriages of British justice, will stream exclusively from August 3 on AMC+.

Investigative reporter Louise Shorter revisits cases where lives were destroyed when individuals were accused of murders they did not commit.

Each case is covered in two episodes. In the first, she examines the the mistakes made in the original investigation that led to the innocent being accused; in the second, she investigates the consequences of a killer walking free and the evidence that eventually caught the real murderer.

It airs on CBS Reality in the UK, where Hello! magazine said it “combines careful logic and interrogation with state-of-the-art forensic science to reveal a new side to some of the most notorious murders in British history”.

Another AMC+ exclusive is You Are Here (August 8), a travel/memoir series in which actor, writer and director Colman Domingo (Fear the Walking Dead, Euphoria) takes viewers on intimate tours of the cities, places and hidden spots pivotal to his life: Savannah, Philadelphia, New York City and Chicago.

Collider said the series “highlights complexities of American cities unlike ever before on a travel show” while in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the star explains “how he’s interrogating places differently as a queer black man”.

Premiering on AMC+ and its Acorn TV arm will be S2 of The Chelsea Detective (August 28), S3 of My Life is Murder (August 21) and S1 of Under the Vines (August 28).

New to AMC+ and its horror service Shudder will be three movies:

  • Paul Dodd’s Deadly Lunch Break (August 1): A weedy charity-shop worker wreaks revenge on the five people he believes thwarted his chances of winning a national talent show;
  • The Communion Girl (August 11): two BFFs on a night out in a small Spanish town encounter a youngster dressed for her first communion with a doll that makes Chucky look like a choir boy;
  • Bad Things (August 18): a weekend getaway for a few girlfriends at a snowy resort becomes a psychological tailspin and bloody nightmare.

Joining Shudder’s library will be Hellraiser (1987), Hellbound: Hellraiser II and Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth (August 1), the original Oldboy (August 7), Amigo (August 11), Amulet and America Latina (August 14), Dead End Drive-in and Terminal Island (August 21), and Death in Brunswick and Inn of the Damned (August 28).
