NEW ZEALAND: The Escape Artist To Première On SoHo In July

Viewers in New Zealand already anticipating the prospect of life without Broadchurch (currently airing on Sundays on TV ONE) may be somewhat comforted to learn that David Tennant will be returning to their screens very soon.

The gripping legal thriller The Escape Artist will première on Sky New Zealand premium channel SoHo from Wednesday 16th July. Originally shown on BBC One during the autumn of 2013, the drama stars David Tennant as Will Burton a high flying junior defence barrister whose life is turned upside down after he manages to wrangle an acquittal in the trial of vicious killer Liam Foyle, chillingly played by Toby Kebbell (RocknRolla).

The Escape Artist was written by David Wolstencroft (Spooks) and also stars Sophie Okonedo, Ashley Jensen and Tony Gardner.
