More information on the new premium series coming to Paramount+ with SHOWTIME can be found below:


A GENTLEMAN IN MOSCOW follows Count Alexander Rostov (Ewan McGregor), who, in the aftermath of the Russian Revolution, finds that his gilded past places him on the wrong side of history. Spared immediate execution, he is banished by a Soviet tribunal to an attic room in the opulent Hotel Metropol and threatened with death if he ever sets foot outside again. As the years pass and some of the most tumultuous decades in Russian history unfold outside the hotel's doors, Rostov's reduced circumstances provide him entry into a much larger world of emotional discovery. As he builds a new life within the walls of the hotel, he discovers the true value of friendship, family, and love.


Executive produced by George Clooney, THE DEPARTMENT is based on the riveting French series Le Bureau, which centers on the daily life and missions of agents within France's principal external security service. It focuses on the "Bureau of Legends," responsible for training and handling deep-cover agents on long-term missions in areas with French interests. Living under false identities for years, these agents must conduct missions are to identify and recruit good intelligence sources.


THE WOMAN IN THE WALL, starring and executive produced by BAFTA(R) and Golden Globe(R) Award winner Ruth Wilson (THE AFFAIR, His Dark Materials) and co-starring BAFTA Award nominee Daryl McCormack (Good Luck to You, Leo Grande, Peaky Blinders), centers on Lorna Brady (Wilson), a woman from the small, fictional Irish town of Kilkinure, who wakes one morning to find a corpse in her house. She has long suffered from extreme bouts of sleepwalking ever since she was incarcerated at 15 in The Kilkinure Convent, a (fictional) home to one of Ireland's infamous Magdalene Laundries for women. Detective Colman Akande (McCormack) now is on Lorna's tail for a crime seemingly unrelated to the body she has discovered in her house, and their paths collide in ways they never could have anticipated. The series also stars Simon Delaney (The Conjuring 2), Philippa Dunne (The Nevers), Mark Huberman (Band of Brothers), Hilda Fay (Float Like a Butterfly), Frances Tomelty (The Amazing Mrs. Pritchard) and Dermot Crowley (Luther: The Fallen Sun). Created and written by BAFTA Award nominee Joe Murtagh (Calm with Horses), THE WOMAN IN THE WALL is produced by Motive Pictures for SHOWTIME and The BBC. In addition, the series is executive produced by Simon Maxwell (Get Millie Black, Deep State), Sam Lavender (Saint Maud, The Lobster), Murtagh, Wilson (Mrs. Wilson, True Things) and Harry Wootliff (True Things).
