With the UK general election coming up this Thursday, June 8, subscription streaming service BritBox will premiere three made-for-TV dramas based on true British political stories, starting tomorrow.
First up on Tuesday, June 6, is Reg, a 2006 film starring Oscar nominee Tim Roth (Rob Roy) as an ambulance paramedic who ran on an anti-war ticket against Prime Minister Tony Blair in the 2005 general election.
Then, on Wednesday, BritBox debuts Mo, a 2010 film starring Oscar nominee Julie Walters (Billy Elliot, Educating Rita) in the title role as Tony Blair’s secretary of state for Northern Ireland who keeps her malignant cancer a secret as she tries to broker a peace deal. Walters won an international Emmy award for her performance.
Finally, on Election Day, Thursday, comes Coalition, a 2015 film dramatizing the formation of a coalition government following the 2010 general election.
Launched in March to offer UK fare to US audiences, BritBox costs $6.99 a month and is available at www.BritBox.com and on iPhones, Android, Apple TV and Roku.
