Coming To NOW (TV) And Sky June 2022: TV And Film Hits

This post may contain affiliate links*

With summer already in sight, Sky and its streaming service NOW have to work harder to keep us indoors and in front of the TV. So June is bringing with it returning hit shows like Westworld and The Good Doctor and highly anticipated new shows like The Lazarus Project and David Simon’s We Own This City.

In the films category, subscribers will be getting some big names like The Matrix Resurrections, King Richard and more, and there’s also sports, with Formula 1, US Open and more.

NOW (Formerly NOW TV- they changed the name last year) is Sky’s no-contract streaming service – a low-cost TV platform that gives you flexible packages – content “memberships” that you can watch on a variety of streaming devices and smartphones.

The plans include the Entertainment Membership for TV shows and Kids’ content, the Cinema Membership for films, and the Sky Sports Membership (See our full NOW review here).

Another recent streaming solution from Sky, where you can also find all the upcoming content, is their Streaming TV – Sky Glass. To learn more about it, see our in-depth Sky Glass review.

As always, last-minute changes sometimes mean that more content is added – or postponed – later in the month. But these are the main NOW and Sky highlights for June 2022:

TV Programmes Coming To NOW Entertainment And Sky In June

The Midwich Cuckoos

Midwich, a small English commuter town, is liberal and aspirational, populated by nuclear families and affluent streets. A place where nothing much happens – that is until the twilight hours of a summer’s day when a sleepy corner of Midwich is plunged into panic.

People pass out on their feet without warning, without reason. Anyone who tries to enter meets the same fate. And nobody can understand why.

When the mysterious blackout is lifted, life for those affected returns to apparent normality – except every woman of child-bearing age inside the zone has suddenly and inexplicably fallen pregnant.

As news spreads and tensions simmer, it is up to gifted psychotherapist Dr Susannah Zellaby (Keeley Hawes) to help support those affected through the emotional wilderness.

Local officer DCI Paul Haynes (Max Beesley) is tasked with maintaining order but unbeknownst to them all, a terrifying force is building in the comfortable streets of Midwich. 

Every episode available to stream from June 2.

The Mark Of A Serial Killer (Season 3)

The behaviours and patterns may differ, but some serial killers simply cannot resist leaving a personal mark on each of their heinous crimes.

From post-mortem rituals to crime scene mementos, these perverse trademarks are often meant to taunt law enforcement but can end up providing vital clues that help the investigators bring down the perpetrator.

Each episode of The Mark of a Serial Killer delves into a different case involving a serial killer signature, featuring first-hand accounts from the detectives involved as well as interviews with criminal psychology experts and those close to the victims.

Scouting For Girls: Fashion’s Darkest Secret

This three-part documentary series reveals how a group of men behind the world’s most successful modelling agencies were involved in a darker side of fashion.

Scouting for Girls: Fashion’s Darkest Secret exposes how modelling agents like John Casablancas, Jean Luc-Brunel, Claude Haddad and Gerald Marie (who contest the allegations), created a culture that enabled many of them to indulge in a spectrum of abusive behaviours, ranging from grooming and coercion to the rape of models as young as 15.

It’s the story of a generation of forgotten women who were promised stardom and glamour but instead found themselves used, abused and, in some cases, trafficked between networks of powerful men.

Bomber: Terror of WWII

If we date the Second World War from 1st September 1939, when German forces invaded Poland, then we must date the Bombing War from Day One when four Luftwaffe bomber groups attacked Warsaw.

By 6th September 1939, the city´s anti-aircraft defences had been reduced to a few guns and much of the Polish capital was in ruins.

The destruction confirmed the fear of the bomber that had been intensified before the War by the Japanese bombing of Chinese cities and the German and Italian planes that pounded Spanish towns in the Civil War, most famously Guernica.

By the time the Second World War opened, fleets of bomber aircraft stood ready on the airfields of every combatant nation.

This is the story of their war and of the remorseless development of the bombers and the weapons they delivered which reached its devastating conclusion on 6th August 1945 – at Hiroshima.

Wild Workers

Animal life has many things in common with human life. Our life cycle is basically the same: birth, breeding, feeding, mating and reproduction and all of it is only possible thanks to a lifetime of dedication to work: garnering, hunting, building, digging, etc.

Wild Workers is an amusing approach to this common “curse” of humans and animals. A fascinating and fun documentary series on the life-long “professions” of nature’s most dedicated workers.
