The Snoopy Show, Series Premiere: A spinoff of the beloved 50-year-old classic Peanuts, comes The Snoopy Show, starring our old friend Snoopy and his best bud, Woodstock. Snoopy is a dog like no other. He may seem a happy-dancin’, bone-lovin’, doghouse-sittin’ beagle but he’s much more than that. He’s also Joe Cool, hippest kid in school, an awesome Surfer King and famed arm-wrestler, the Masked Marvel. When he indulges in his fantasies, he can be a World War I Flying Ace battling the Red Baron or an intrepid astronaut landing on the moon. The point is…Snoopy is a beagle with an active imagination full of comic personas. And they’re all on display — both real and fantastic — in a brand-new animated comedy, The Snoopy Show.

The Pembrokeshire Murders, North American Premiere: The true-crime drama limited series stars Luke Evans as Steve Wilkins, a detective chasing a notorious cold case.

As part of the investigation, Wilkins figures out the killer, John Cooper, was actually already in jail for another crime, but was due to be released – forcing him and his team to prove the connection to prevent a murderer from being freed to potentially kill again. Cooper would eventually be dubbed “The Bullseye Killer,” as an appearance on the popular game show “Bullseye” would play a role in his conviction. BritBox also debuted Catching The Game Show Killer, a documentary featuring the real-life account of the infamous crimes from those who helped solve them. The first episode is now streaming, with new episodes airing weekly.
