The broadcaster has revealed 30 new Sky Original documentaries, dramas, entertainment and comedy shows as part of its commitment to boost original content by 2024.

Zai Bennett, Managing Director, Content, Sky UK & Ireland, said: “This year on Sky and NOW TV we’ve got an epic variety of entertainment for everyone, adding a brand-new slate of Sky Original films and Sky Original documentaries to our line-up of award-winning drama, comedy, entertainment and arts series."

It includes six new drama series: 'Wolfe', 'The Midwich Cuckoos', 'Extinction', 'The Sceptred Isle', 'Landscapers' and 'Intergalactic'.

'Shameless' writer, Paul Abbott, penned 'Wolfe', which stars Babou Ceesay as a forensic pathologist, and is set to hit screens this autumn.

While David Farr adapted John Wyndham’s classic science-fiction novel for 'The Midwich Cuckoos'.

Paapa Essiedu, Tom Burke, Anjli Mohindra and Caroline Quentin will join forces for Joe Barton's 'Extinction', an action thriller about a man who joins an organisation that can turn back time to save the planet.

Sky has also listed seven new documentaries, including 'The Bambers: Murder on the Farm', which is executive produced by Louis Theroux and Aaron Fellows, and explores new evidence from the 1985 murders.

Speaking about the project, Louis said: "It's a big responsibility taking on a subject that's touched the lives of so many people in such a tragic way. But I'm confident we can make it much more than a true crime documentary. This is a story not only about the criminal justice system but about family and adoption, class and religion, mental health and the undeserved stigma around it."

British funnymen Russell Howard and Greg Davis' comedy shows 'Russell Howard's Back to the Future stand up show' and 'Safe Space', respectively, will also be shown.

What's more, Sky will be adding 30 Original films, including Dame Judi Dench’s 'Six Minutes to Midnight', Sir Michael Caine's 'Twist', Dame Maggie Smith's 'A Boy Called Christmas' and Robert De Niro's 'The Comeback Trail'.
