Virgin Media will add TNT’s Good Behavior to its nascent box set service from next month.
Ceated by Chad Hodge and Blake Crouch, and based on the books by Crouch, the 10-part series stars Michelle Dockery (Downton Abbey, Argentine-Spanish actor Juan Diego Botto, Terry Kinney (Oz, Billions) and Lusia Strus (50 First Dates).
Good Behavior tells the story of Letty Raines (Dockery), a thief and con artist whose life is always one wrong turn or one bad decision from implosion.
Fresh out of prison, Letty tries to stay afloat; reunite with her 10-year-old son who is currently being raised by her mother Estelle (Strus); and show up for the mandatory check-ins with her parole officer Christian (Kinney), who carries his own demons which cause him to relate to Letty in a way that threatens his ability to do his job.
Chaos returns to Letty’s life when she overhears a hitman (Botto) being hired to kill a man’s wife, and sets out to derail the job.
She soon finds herself on a collision course with the killer, entangling both of them in a dangerously captivating relationship.
The first six episodes arrive on Virgin TV on demand from Monday 11 September, and a new episode released every week thereafter.
Virgin will also carry the second series from Monday 16 October, to coincide with the US premiere of the new season.
David Bouchier, Chief Entertainment Officer at Virgin Media, said: “Our Full House customers will be gripped by this gritty suspense-filled drama, which stars Michelle Dockery as you’ve never seen her before.
“We’re giving them six binge-worthy episodes followed by one a week after that and series two airing at the same time as the US.
“Good Behavior, our seventh exclusive series, adds to our bounty of the best, must-watch TV all available in one place the way our customers want it.”
