The documentary series opens with the story of Sister Cathy Cesnik, a beloved nun and Catholic high school teacher in Baltimore who went missing on November 7, 1969. Nearly two months later her body was found, and to this day, her murder remains unsolved.

In 1990 the case was brought up again when one of Sister Cathy's former students - a woman only known as 'Jane Doe' - came forward and spoke out about her experience of sexual abuse by the school's chaplain.

'Jane' revealed she was taken to Sister Cathy's dead body and told: “See what happens when you say bad things about people.”

Through the eyes of key witnesses, government officials, relatives and journalists The Keepers will tell the story of the teacher's death and the alleged clergy abuse that took place at the Baltimore school.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt was created by writer and actress Tina Fey who was also responsible for Mean Girls.

Friday 26 May

War Machine

An upcoming Netflix Original film starring Brad Pitt as a US General.

IMDb describes it as "An absurdist war story for our times, writer-director David Michôd (Animal Kingdom) recreates a U.S. General's roller-coaster rise and fall as part reality, part savage parody... an exploration of a born leader's ultra-confident march right into the dark heart of folly.

"At the story's core is Brad Pitt's sly take on a successful, charismatic four-star general who leapt in like a rock star to command NATO forces in Afghanistan, only to be taken down by a journalist's no-holds-barred exposé."

Bloodline series three

Set in the Florida Keys and starring Sissy Spacek, Ben Mendelsohn and Sam Shepard, Bloodline centres on a close-knit family of four adult siblings whose secrets are revealed when their black sheep brother returns home.

The Rayburns are set to inherit a beautiful inn that has been in their family for more than 50 years. Although it's their childhood home - with many memories - it's also a place where many lies and secrets have been told.

This will be the show's final series.
