EXTRAORDINARY EXTENSIONS 
Start streaming Monday, July 18

Homeowners across the UK embrace their inner architect and build unique and extraordinary home extensions. Host, rapper, and property and design enthusiast, Tinie Tempah, focuses on the most out-of-the-box constructions and buildings, like a modern extension to a 17th century cottage, a huge structure of glass and so much more.

CRIME 
Start streaming Friday, July 22

For the first time ever, Irvine Welsh turns his attention to a television drama series with a story adapted from his best-selling novel. As with his masterpiece Trainspotting, the streets of Edinburgh are the setting for CRIME—the story of a tormented detective in a city on the edge of the abyss. Dougray Scott (Mission: Impossible 2, My Week with Marilyn) leads a stellar cast as Detective Inspector Ray Lennox, a man whose clear sight is as much a blessing as it is a curse. A girl goes missing. A town is in fear. A police department fights with itself. A hero is lost, tortured by his own demons. And all the while—watching, waiting—a brutal killer is poised to strike.

BUMP - Season 2 
Start streaming Friday, July 29
