THE AVALON TV ON DEMAND GUIDE

Please see below a round-up of new and currently streaming TV On Demand in the UK that is produced by Avalon. This list will be updated on our press centre here as any new shows are released.

 

Breeders (Sky One & FX)

“terrific: dark, fresh, brutal, funny…Simon Blackwell and Chris Addison have managed the near-impossible by creating a parenting comedy that is not twee and makes the tired tropes of sleep deprivation and school-catchment obsession funny.”
★★★★ Carol Midgley, The Times

Breeders, a new comedy starring Martin Freeman and Daisy Haggard, explores the paradox that every parent knows but never admits: you would willingly die for your children, but quite often you also want to kill them. The critically acclaimed series is created by Academy Award®-nominee and double Emmy® Award-winner Simon Blackwell, double Emmy® Award and Directors Guild of America Award winner Chris Addison and Emmy and BAFTA®-winning Freeman. Sky and FX have renewed the show for a second season.

Catastrophe (Channel 4 & Amazon Prime)

“From first to last Catastrophe has been an unremitting triumph.”
★★★★★ Lucy Mangan, The Guardian


Written by and starring Rob Delaney and Sharon Horgan, Catastrophe is a four series comedy following an Irish woman and an American man who make a bloody mess as they struggle to fall in love in London.  Clumsy lust, instant pregnancy, and genuine disaster provide the foundation for this flaming hovel of a relationship.  The show has received universal critical acclaim and a raft of awards since launching in 2015.  Three series have 100%, and one 95%, ratings on Rotten Tomatoes (representing the percentage of professional critic reviews in the USA and UK that are positive for a given film or TV show).

Dave GormanModern Life is Goodish (UKTV Play)

“His fine observations and crafted running jokes will soon have you snorting… Dave’s website (Dave the channel, not Gorman himself) has an archive of several seasons of this hidden jewel.”
Jack Seale, Radio Times


Dave Gorman Modern Life is Goodish ran for five critically lauded series on Dave, attracting 1.5 million viewers per episode at its peak, and was one of UKTV’s most successful original commissions. Also enjoy last year’s new series, Dave Gorman: Terms and Conditions Apply* where Dave brought along his trusty screen and three comedy guests as they cast their eye over his latest modern world discoveries, compete in mischievous games and generally try to unscramble the baffling morass of non-stop information that surrounds us in the internet age.

Russell Howard The Russell Howard Hour (Sky One)

“Altogether more politicised and hard-hitting….It was a treat to find Howard showing so much bite… it’s not often you get such spiky satire on Sky1…Howard and his Hour should be applauded.”
Michael Hogan, The Daily Telegraph

Russell Howard offers his unique and acclaimed perspective on news and current affairs over three series of The Russell Howard Hour, with the fourth series already commissioned by Sky. The inaugural series was the most successful new entertainment series to launch on the channel since 2010 and the show has since received over 400 million views across social media as a result of multiple segments going viral. Filmed in front of a studio audience, Russell conducts in-depth wider social interviews with an array of interesting guests including Ed Sheeran, John Oliver, Alesha Dixon, Chris O’Dowd, Naomi Klein, Jamie Oliver, Louis Theroux, Diane Abbott, Greg Davies, Fiona Bruce, Richard Curtis, Stephen Merchant, Jack Black and Elizabeth Banks.
