Two US dramas are coming to UK audiences this year, with Elsbeth, US network CBS’ second most-watched new series of the 23-24 season, and Matlock, inspired by the classic television series of the same name, joining an unmissable line up of programming coming to Sky and streaming service NOW in 2024.

Elsbeth – which currently holds a 94% Rotten Tomatoes rating - stars Emmy Award winner Carrie Preston as Elsbeth Tascioni, an astute but unconventional attorney who utilises her singular point of view to make unique observations and corner brilliant criminals alongside the NYPD. Viewers will recognise the character from the hit series The Good Wife and The Good Fight, with the new show following Elsbeth as she tackles a new investigative role in New York City. The series also stars Wendell Pierce known for his roles in shows such as Suits and The Wire and Carra Patterson who can be seen in the film Rustin.

Also coming to Sky Witness and NOW in 2024 is Matlock, starring Emmy and Academy Award winner Kathy Bates as the titular character. The series follows the brilliant septuagenarian Madeline “Matty” Matlock, who, after achieving success in her younger years, decides to rejoin the workforce at a prestigious law firm where she uses her unassuming demeanour and wily tactics to win cases. The series also stars Skye P. Marshall, Jason Ritter, David Del Rio and Leah Lewis.

Katie Keenan, Group Director of Acquisitions, Sky UK and Europe, said: “We are delighted to be bringing two of the newest US dramas to Sky and NOW audiences this year. Kathy Bates as Matlock and Carrie Preston as Elsbeth are two brilliant characters to bring to our viewers - we know they will be glued to the screen every week.”

The deal was negotiated by Lucy Criddle, Director of Acquisitions and Strategic Projects, Sky, and Alex Wright, Acquisitions Manager, Sky and Matt Downer, SVP, Regional TV Licensing, Paramount Global Content Distribution and Carlos Mata, VP, Regional TV Licensing, Paramount Global Content Distribution. Elsbeth and Matlock are both produced by CBS Studios and distributed by Paramount Global Content Distribution.

Elsbeth will be airing weekly from 23 July on Sky Witness and streaming service NOW, with Matlock coming later this year.
