Spectrum just gave the psychological thriller, Angela Black, an official trailer, and a release date of Monday, February 7. The six episodes of Angela Black will stream in the US for free and ad-free on Spectrum On Demand.
The thriller series tells the story of a seemingly happily married woman whose life is turned upside down when she is visited by a private detective who informs her that her husband is not who he seems. Angela Black stars Joanne Froggatt (Downton Abbey), Michael Huisman (The stewardess), and Samuel Adewunmi (The last tree).
The ominous trailer begins with the main character spending time with his family in a modern mansion and seeming to enjoy their delicate life. But beneath the surface, things are not what they seem as tensions rise between Angela and her husband. One rainy night when she is alone in her large kitchen, Angela receives a visit from a stranger who tells her that she does not know her husband. Angela seems to join forces with her visitor to find out the truth about the father of her children, even as everyone around her tries to convince her that she’s imagining it all. As the trailer progresses, it becomes clear that Angela’s angelic life is all a front and is about to fall apart, especially when the closing shot shows Angela putting powder in a drink, loading a gun and closing what appears to be a car trunk while covered in blood.
Angela Black is an international co-production between Spectrum Originals and British company ITV. The first six episodes aired in Britain late last year. The six episodes are written by Harry and Jack Williams and led by Craig Viveiros. Harry and Jack Williams co-founded Two Brothers Pictures, which is behind shows like Flea bag and Back to life. Craig Viveiros notably directed the three episodes of the latest small-screen adaptation of H. G. Wells’ War of the Worlds in 2019.
Angela Black is considered a limited series and won’t get a season 2. The show will premiere in the US early next month, so it should be safe to assume that more promotional material should start appearing in the next weeks. Check out the official trailer and synopsis for Angela Black below:
“Angela’s life seems idyllic: a pretty house in the suburbs of London, days of voluntary work at a dog shelter, two beautiful sons and a charming and hardworking husband – Olivier. However, beneath this facade of charming domesticity, Angela is a victim of domestic violence. Olivier is bossy and brutal; but Angela loves him and he is the father of her children. She covers her bruises with makeup and fabricates lies to explain her missing teeth. Until one day Angela is approached by Ed – a private detective – and he breaks up her already strained domestic life. Ed reveals Olivier’s deepest secrets to Angela, and she is confronted with horrifying truths about her husband and his betrayals, forced to take the things in hand.”
The four-part drama starring Adrian Scarborough joins a growing library of British favourites.
