Acorn TV features the DVD debut of the outrageous police procedural NO OFFENCE, Series 1 on August 7, 2018. The outrageous female-driven police procedural follows an unorthodox team of cops in Manchester. From legendary writer Paul Abbott (Shameless, State of Play) comes an “exhilarating, ballsy, and…filthily funny” (The Independent) police comedy-drama with fierce female characters and a shrewd, irreverent take on crime. The critically-acclaimed dramedy stars Joanna Scanlan (Requiem, The Thick of It, Notes on a Scandal) and Irish Film & TV Academy Lead Drama Actress nominee Elaine Cassidy (Acceptable Risk, The Paradise, The Others). The DVD 3-Disc Set features 8 episodes, plus bonus featurettes ($49.99, Amazon.com). No Offence, Series 1 made its U.S. premiere in April 2018 on Acorn TV. Called a “glorious streaming service… an essential must-have” (The Hollywood Reporter), Acorn TV is North America’s most popular streaming service focused on British and international television from RLJ Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ: RLJE).
Charismatic DI Vivienne Deering (Scanlan) leads an ace but unorthodox squad that tackles Manchester’s most gruesome and off-the-wall crimes, including drug dealers, neo-Nazis, and black-market organ sellers. When strong-willed DC Dinah Kowalska (Cassidy) connects a body at the morgue to a group of murdered girls with Down’s syndrome, Viv and her team begin the hunt for a serial killer. What they uncover could leave even the most seasoned officers reeling.
Loaded with dark humor and shocking plot twists, this award-winning series also stars Alexandra Roach (Iron Lady, Anna Karenina), Will Mellor (Broadchurch), Paul Ritter (Vera), and Colin Salmon (Arrow).
