New to Neon in January

Romantic Getaway, a new Sky UK comedy starring Romesh Ranganathan and Katherine Ryan as a couple who steal money to fund IVF treatment, will stream exclusively on Neon from January 2.

It’s billed as a six-part, modern Bonnie and Clyde story that mixes “classic romantic comedy moments with high octane, thrilling set-pieces”. Reads the blurb:

Allison and Deacon are desperate for a baby, but they’ve run out of money to fund any more IVF treatment. So they decide to ‘borrow’ the £50k they need from their filthy rich boss Alfie, who they discover is illegally creaming off money from the company. And it works! Except that, on a whim, Deacon secretly adds an extra nought to the transfer, and actually steals half a million quid. Also, Allison is secretly starting to doubt whether she wants a baby after all. Their web of lies kicks off a downward spiral into the criminal underworld of suburban Britain, and pushes them, and their plans for their future together, to the limit.

Here’s the trailer:

Also new to Neon will be video game adaptation The Last of Us (January 16), which will stream from the same day as its SoHo premiere, and season two of Your Honor (January 17), in which Bryan Cranston reprises his role as a judge compromised by his son’s involvement in a hit-and-run that embroils an organised crime family.

Also returning will be We’re Here S3 (January 20), Bump S3 (January 20) and Love Island UK S9 (coming soon).

Movie highlights will include Top Gun: Maverick, Minions: The Rise of Gru and The Forgiven.
