New to Neon in May

White House Plumbers (May 2) is HBO’s take on the Watergate scandal, from the perspectives of two of the break-in’s masterminds: E Howard Hunt (Woody Harrelson) and G Gordon Liddy (Justin Theroux).

Billed as being from the producers of Succession and Veep, its creative credentials are impeccable. Reads the blurb:

Set in 1971, both Hunt and Liddy have just been hired by the White House to investigate the Pentagon Papers leak when they end up landing on the committee to re-elect the president. White House Plumbers aims to pull back the curtain to the events that led up to one of America’s most infamous political crimes.

Lena Headey (Game of Thrones), Domnhall Gleeson (Run) and Kiernan Shipka (The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) co-star in the five-part series that also will screen 9.30 Sundays on SoHo from May 7.

    Fear the Walking Dead should be on AMC+ with the other seasons. I feel so annoyed 🙄

  2. Yeah, it’s really weird for an organisation like Sky that has paid for broadcasting rights to not surrender them to another organisation. Something about contractual rights in the legal world …
