Based on actual events, Blood on the Crown tells the story of how Maltese citizens fought for their independence against England in 1919 — a deadly rebellion covered up for nearly 100 years. Immediately following the end of World War I, the Maltese people united in an uprising for their country’s independence against the British. A small number of soldiers were sent to quell the rioting protesters, whose numbers had reached the thousands. Blood spilled in the streets when the British Army gunned down unarmed protesters. The large number of casualties and the imprisonment of more than 115 Maltese citizens were an embarrassment to the British Army.

The Sette Giugno is now a Maltese national holiday.

Series ‘Almost Paradise’ Headed to IMDb TV Feb. 1

Electric Entertainment’s “Almost Paradise,” which originally premiered domestically in March 2020 on the broadcast network WGN America, is headed to AVOD service IMDb TV Feb. 1.

“We have established a wonderful relationship with Amazon’s IMDb TV,” said Electric CEO Dean Devlin. “This marks our third partnership with the free streaming service — the first being the re-imagining of the hit TV series ‘Leverage 2.0,’ and secondly, the streaming of all three seasons of ‘The Outpost.’ We can’t be more pleased with how our relationship is blossoming and look forward to more opportunities with the rapidly growing AVOD service.”

The series stars Christian Kane (“The Librarians,” “Leverage,” “Angel”) as Alex Walker, a former U.S. DEA agent who was forced into early retirement. Once the DEA’s most resourceful undercover operative, the combination of his partner’s betrayal and a life-threatening battle with hypertension sent him as far from the madness as he can go — a small tropical island in the Philippine Archipelago. He now runs the gift shop at the island’s luxury resort hotel, gets his disability payments at the nearby U.S. Air Force base, and generally manages his transition from Jason Bourne to Jimmy Buffett. But, the island’s luxury resorts attract rich, powerful, and sometimes criminal elite from around the world, often on a collision course with Alex. Despite his best efforts to begin a tranquil new life, he’s pulled back into a world of dangerous people and deadly situations, either through his friends in the local police department or running into people from his old life.
