New to Lightbox in March

A character-based psychological thriller starring Dexter’s Jennifer Carpenter will open its exclusive Lightbox run on March 4 with a double-episode.

The Enemy Within stars Carpenter as a brilliant former CIA operative serving life in a Supermax prison for treason who’s recruited to track down a fiercely dangerous and elusive criminal she knows all too well.

It premieres February 25 in the US, where the mercilessly sceptical website Reason hailed the NBC series as “a near-perfect mixture of the chess-piece intricacy of The Good Shepherd and the loony bang-bang of the Mission: Impossible movies … a classic infinity-of-mirrors counterintelligence drama—and in more ways than one.”

Streaming weekly from March 1 — the same day as the US — will be season three of solo mum drama Better Things, which adds Sharon Stone and Matthew Broderick to the cast

Also new to Lightbox will be season three of Aber | Bergen  (March 6), season seven of Homeland (March 14), seasons one of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy (March 16) and the Upstairs, Downstairs of Australian law dramas, Newton’s Law (March 26), and the Jodie Whittaker thriller, Trust Me (March 2).

Lightbox also has confirmed season three of The Handmaid’s Tale will stream weekly from June 6.
