New to Neon in December

Unwanted (December 1) is an eight-part Sky Atlantic thriller about a luxury cruise ship that’s hijacked by the shipwrecked refugees it rescues.

The Irish Independent said it “has quality stamped all over it. It’s created and co-written by Stefano Bises (Gomorrah) and directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel of Downfall fame”.

Marco Bocci, Jessica Schwarz, Dada Fungula, Sylvester Growth and Scot Williams star.

Bookie (December 22) is a Max comedy about a veteran LA bookie who struggles to survive the impending legalisation of sports gambling and his increasingly unstable clients, family and co-workers.

Vanessa Ferlito, Jorge Garcia, Andrea Anders, Bob Clendenin and C. S. Lee star.

Variety reckons Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club (December 7) is a “juicily riveting … portrait of the paparazzi magnet-turned-aspiring hospitality magnate” while The Guardian thought it “the reality show we really didn’t need“.

Smothered (December 7) is a romantic-comedy about a one-night stand that turns into a three-week no-strings-attached affair.

It was created by former Schitt’s Creek writer Monica Heisey and stars Big Boys’ Jon Pointing, Famalam’s Danielle Vitalis, Aisling Bea, Rebecca Lucy Taylor (the singer also known as Self Esteem) and LA Law’s Blair Underwood.
