“Tom Jones,” a new adaptation of Henry Fielding’s classic novel, headlines the upcoming releases on the PBS Masterpiece Prime Video Channel in April.
The subscription rate for the PBS Masterpiece Prime Video Channel is $5.99 per month with an Amazon Prime or Prime Video subscription.
Four episodes of the “Masterpiece” dramedy “Tom Jones” start streaming April 30. In the series, Solly McLeod (“House of the Dragon”) stars as the handsome, resourceful title character, with Sophie Wilde (“You Don’t Know Me”) as the beautiful and bright, seemingly unattainable love of his life Sophia Western. He is a foundling of uncertain parentage, while she is an heiress. In 18th-century England, their class differences make their journey to find each other complicated and treacherous. Emmy-winning actress Hannah Waddingham (“Ted Lasso”) plays the seductive and vengeful Lady Bellaston, who comes between Tom and Sophia.
Season two of the crime drama “Before We Die” begins streaming April 10. Lesley Sharp (“Scott & Bailey,” “Three Girls”) returns to head up the cast as Detective Hannah Laing, who joins forces with maverick detective Billy Murdoch, played by Vincent Regan (Troy, 300) in a desperate bid to protect her son Christian, played by Patrick Gibson (“The OA,” Guerrilla). The second installment of the series will not follow the same storyline of the original Swedish series, which the first season is based on, but will see Hannah pitched directly against Dubravka, played by Kazia Pelka (“World’s End,” “Casualty”), the matriarch at the head of the Mimica Croatian crime family.
