If you've been waiting for the premiere of season 7 of Shetland, this month's BritBox premiere schedule will make you very happy indeed. Along with new Shetland episodes, the month is bringing loads of new crime-related content. It is not, however, a great month for the period drama fans among us (there aren't any on the schedule).
Not a BritBox member? You can sign up HERE on their website, or HERE on Amazon Video. Both options offer the same content, but some people find one or the other offers better compatibility with their devices or internet service provider. Occasionally, there's a slight delay for new content to arrive on the Prime version of the channel.

September 1st BritBox Premieres
This prison drama follows a group of officers working in the C-Wing of Long Marsh men's prison. Gritty and dramatic, it follows not only the happenings in the prison, but also the personal drama and secrets each employee brings with them.
In charge of C-Wing is Leigh Henry (Nina Sosanya, Love Actually, W1A), a career officer who’d do anything for her prisoners – but she has a secret that could cost her not only her job, but her freedom. With the arrival of fiery new recruit Rose Gill (Jamie-Lee O’Donnell), Leigh will have to risk everything just to keep what she has – but as tensions mount between Leigh and Rose, we discover that Rose has a secret, too, and it could be deadly.

Murder, Mystery, & My Family, Season 5
What if one of your ancestors was convicted of murder? And what if they were innocent? That's exactly what this series tackles.
