Hollywood Suite Premieres ‘Mr Bates vs The Post Office’ and ‘Until I Kill You’

Both Ripped From the Headlines Series Will Debut This Spring

Toronto. March 13, 2024 – Hollywood Suite is absolutely chuffed to announce the Canadian premieres of two highly acclaimed drama series from ITV Studios, Mr Bates vs The Post Office and the powerful forthcoming drama produced by the award-winning World Productions, Until I Kill You. Hollywood Suite will be the exclusive Canadian home for both titles.

Mr Bates vs The Post Office is ITV’s biggest new drama in over a decade, even beating the launch of Downton Abbey in 2010.

The ITV Studios and Little Gem Media series, written by acclaimed screenwriter Gwyneth Hughes (Honour, Vanity Fair, Dark Angel) and executive produced by Patrick Spence (Adult Material, Marvellous), ITV Studios, Gwyneth Hughes, Natasha Bondy and Ben Gale (Surviving the Virus, This is our Family) on behalf of Little Gem, has sparked debate in Britain’s parliament and led to the introduction of legislation to overturn the wrongful convictions of hundreds of postmasters. With an exceptional cast featuring Toby Jones (Empire of Light, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Sherlock), Monica Dolan (Eye In The Sky, Sherwood), and Shaun Dooley (Saltburn, The Woman In Black), the show will air over the course of two nights, May 28 and May 29 at 9pm ET. It will be available on Hollywood Suite On Demand on May 29.

Based on a shocking true story, the powerful drama Until I Kill You stars Line of Duty’s Anna Maxwell Martin as Delia Balmer, an agency nurse who survived a near-fatal relationship with murderer John Sweeney, played by Shaun Evans (Endeavour). The four-part series will premiere April 18 at 9pm ET and be available on Hollywood Suite On Demand beginning April 1.

“ITV Studios has an incredible track record of bringing the best in dramatic television to audiences, and we’re thrilled to sign on to these two projects with them,” said Sharon Stevens, Vice-President of Programming for Hollywood Suite. “The Pembrokeshire Murders, which we premiered in April 2021, was a massive success both for us in Canada as well as across the pond and we’re confident that Until I Kill You and Mr. Bates vs. The Post Office will be similarly embraced by Canadians.”

Mr Bates vs The Post Office synopsis:

Four-part drama, based on the true story of one man’s fight against one of the greatest miscarriages of justice in British legal history. Starting more than 20 years ago, the Post Office wrongly dismissed, harassed, and prosecuted hundreds of innocent subpostmasters for theft, fraud, and false accounting. Subpostmasters were told they were the only ones to report a problem with a new computer system called Horizon. When Alan Bates was sacked, he refused to accept the Post Office line. He found and brought together a group of other isolated and wrongly accused victims to form the Justice for Subpostmasters Alliance. Alan Bates and his friends exposed a shocking scandal at the heart of the Post Office, a government-owned and much-loved national institution.

Until I Kill You synopsis:

When Delia Balmer meets John Sweeney, he seems like the kindred spirit she has been searching for. But as his anti-establishment persona gives way to a darker, violent side, Sweeney taunts Delia with the revelation that he murdered his ex-girlfriend. Sweeney is arrested, but released on bail after the court fails to recognise how dangerous he is, leaving him free to subject Delia to a near-fatal attack. She survives, but Sweeney disappears. Delia tries to rebuild her life, but when Sweeney is arrested years later, she must face him all over again in court as the key prosecution witness.
