Written by popular Scottish espionage novelist William Boyd (Restless, Any Human Heart), it's filled to brimming with intrigue. German actresses Leonie Benesch and Romane Portail co-star in this high-stakes six-parter. Take a trip to Spy City on AMC+.
Happy Valley's James Norton stars in this British thriller film based on an almost unfathomable true story. He plays Robert Hendy-Freegard, an infamous conman who posed as an MI5 agent while actually working as a bartender and car salesperson. His victims were often coerced out of money and encouraged to cut ties with family and friends, making them even more vulnerable to further manipulation. Gemma Arterton co-stars as Alice Archer, the woman who finally caught him. Watch Rogue Agent on AMC+.
One Lane Bridge

It follows young Māori detective Ariki Davis (Dominic Ona-Ariki) as he investigates the death of a prominent local figure whose body is found in the water underneath the titular One Lane Bridge. In the process, Davis finds himself tapping into his matakite, an aspect of Māori spirituality akin to second sight or divination. Joel Tobeck (Sons of Anarchy) co-stars as his investigating partner, Detective Senior Sergeant Stephen Tremaine. Watch One Lane Bridge on AMC+.
Set in a remote Scottish community, this gripping miniseries centers on an unspeakable and seemingly inexplicable tragedy.
