   "Strike" series to return in 20180 Comments

The BBC has announced that The Strike Series will return to the BBC in 2018.


  Accio Quote:
Burke will return as Strike in Strike – Career of Evil as the war veteran turned private detective operating out of a tiny office in London’s Denmark Street. Though he’s wounded both physically and psychologically, Strike’s unique insight and his background as an SIB investigator prove crucial in unravelling complex cases.

Grainger will also return to play Robin, Strike’s assistant. Though she begins as a temporary secretary, managing Strike’s chaotic life, she soon becomes involved with his caseload and begins to see her true potential.

When a dismembered leg is sent to Strike’s office, it sends both Cormoran’s and Robin’s lives into disarray, forcing them to confront ghosts from their pasts. Their partnership reaches breaking point as Robin’s wedding approaches and they disagree about how to ensnare a man who abuses children.

   "Strike" series to be renamed in America0 Comments

Deadline is reporting that The Strike TV series will be renamed C.B. Strike when it airs on Cinemax in the US and Canada.


  Accio Quote:
As for C.B. Strike (UK title: Strike), it had originally been earmarked for HBO. Following conversations between Antholis and HBO programming president Casey Bloys, the two concluded that the show “would have a greater impact” on Cinemax than on HBO, Antholis said. “We’re looking for opportunities to broaden our audience (on Cinemax) and appeal to viewers besides the kind of core adrenaline-action oriented viewer, and we had an opportunity with C.B. Strike — it’s a very appealing, entertaining kind of whodunit show.”
