The next BIG shows find their destination on Star World Premiere HD

MUMBAI: After the fascinating success of Ryan Murphy’s People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story and HBO’s The Night Of that started their journey on Star World Premiere HD this year, the country’s leading English entertainment channel is now geared up to bring the next set of biggest shows on television! Carefully curated and critically acclaimed, the line-up for the next two months alone is set to get bigger as gifted and accomplished movie makers come together with actors par excellence to create the greatest experience on television yet. The channel that pioneered the day and date movement in India will now introduce a dedicated slot for day and date content called ‘DAILY PREMIERES’. Through this, Star World Premiere HD aims at reinventing the television entertainment genre by introducing the biggest, most awaited, new premieres every night at 10 PM!

Just like that, the programming line-up for September includes some of the most awaited shows such as Louie C K’s Better Things, Dan Fogelman’s This is Us and from the makers of Oscar winning movie ‘The Revenant’ comes Quarry.

Kick-starting the line-up is the anticipated hit ‘Quarry’ premiering in India on September 14th at 10 PM. The show follows the story of Mac Conway, a Marine who returns home to Memphis from Vietnam in 1972 and finds himself shunned by those he loves and demonized by the public. Starring Logan Marshall-Green (The OC, 24 and Prometheus), Peter Mullan (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Hercules and Jungle Book), Jodi Balflour (Bomb Girls), Edoardo Ballerini (Terminator, The Sopranos, Boardwalk Empire, 24 and Law & Order) and Jamie Hector (Person of Interest, Bosch, The Wire, The Game and Law & Order) among others, Quarry is based on the book series of the same name.

Following suit is the new age comedy series ‘Better Things’ by renowned comedian Louie CK that will premiere on Indian television on September 15th at 10 PM. The cringe-humour television series stars Pamela Adlon in the role of a divorced actress embarking on a new life’s journey as she navigates through situations trying to earn a living, raising three daughters all by herself while also having fun with a friend or two and maybe squeezing in some private time once in a while. The show embodies a very real woman in an extremely real world while also throwing in some laughs amidst all the hilarities that life throws at you.

Next in line is Crazy Stupid Love, Tangled, Galavant and 17 Again fame Dan Fogelman’s upcoming television series ‘This is Us’ premiering on September 24th at 10 PM. Tagged as possibly the biggest show of the season by critics internationally, This is Us is a dramedy that follows the life of Jack, his wife Rebecca and the people they meet along the way who all share the same birthdays; as the story progresses, their lives intertwine. The show marks A Walk To Remember star Mandy Moore’s comeback to television in a pivotal role and also stars Milo Ventimiglia (Heroes, Gilmore Girls, Gotham, Law & Order and Mob City), Chris Sullivan (Stranger Things, The Knick, Guardians of the Galaxy, Law & Order and The Americans), Justin Hartley (The Young and the Restless, Smallville, Revenge, Mistresses and Passions) and Sterling K Brown (Ryan Murphy’s American Crime Story, Person of Interest, Criminal Minds, The Good Wife) among others.

As September ends, the shows get even bigger with premieres of the world film industry’s most inspiring script-writer and Christopher Nolan’s younger brother, Jonathan Nolan’s show ‘Westworld’, Sarah Jessica Parker’s most awaited comeback to television with ‘Divorce’, the Hugh Laurie starrer mastermind show ‘Chance’ and Issa Rae and Larry Wilmore’s all new show ‘Insecure’.

The October line-up commences with the most kick-ass and awaited premiere of Jonathan Nolan’s Westworld that premieres in India on October 4th at 10 PM. Nolan needs no description and neither do the stars of the show, Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Thandie Netwon, James Marsden, Evan Rachel Wood and more. Based on the 1973 film of the same name, the show, described as a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin, tells the story of a futuristic theme park called Westworld.

Next in line are the premieres of Divorce and Insecure on October 17th at 10 and 10:30 PM respectively. Sarah Jessica Parker who was last seen on television in 2004 and vowed to never work in television again, will be seen marking her big return not only as the lead in the upcoming TV show Divorce but also as the show’s executive producer. The show also stars George of the Jungle, Sideways and Spider-Man fame Thomas Haden Church, child actor of Conjuring fame Sterling Jerins, Mad Men, All The King’s Men, No Strings Attached and Little Manhattan star Talia Balsam as well as Serendipity, Shallow Hal, My Boss’ Daughter and Bad Teacher fame Molly Shannon among others. The story of a very, very long divorce, the show follows Frances and Robert as they grapple with the fallout from their failing marriage, not just for themselves, but also for their children and friends, ranging from awkward public encounters to difficult private therapy sessions.

Meanwhile Insecure is a comedy television show based on Issa Rae’s web series Awkward Black Girl and follows the awkward experiences and racy tribulations of a modern-day African-American woman.

Jumping the bandwagon for yet another huge premiere this season is Chance that marks Hugh Laurie’s big return to primetime television and will premiere in India on October 21st at 10 PM. A provocative, psychological thriller, Chance is based on a novel of the same name and focuses Eldon Chance a San Francisco-based forensic neuro-psychiatrist who reluctantly gets sucked into a violent and dangerous world of mistaken identity, police corruption and mental illness.

Reinforcing its brand proposition ‘It Begins Here’, Star World Premiere HD is all set to keep up the momentum of ‘DAILY PREMIERES’ by having some of the most awaited, intelligent, intriguing, critically-acclaimed and star-studded shows that are considered as the next big thing on television, start their journey here!
