  1. Inspector Ricciardi: From Friday 10th March, All4/Walter Presents

    Inspector Ricciardi, an Italian period crime drama, will hit our screens next month.

    Naples, 1932. Inspector Ricciardi is no ordinary detective. The police commissioner is haunted by the ghosts of people who were violently killed, and can hear their final thoughts. It is a gift he inherited from his mother, and he doesn’t hesitate to use his chilling connection to the echoes of the dead to solve Naples’ most vicious murder cases. Thus, this extraordinary gift is both a blessing and a curse.


    BBC Four confirms transmission date for Paris Police 1905

    Two years ago we were bowled over by Paris Police1900, a handsome, turn-of-the-20th-century crime drama set in Paris (the clue’s in the name, we guess). It examined politics, riots, race, addiction and class in a sumptuous, sprawling story.

    And it’s coming back for a second series.

    Now set in 1905 (again, the clue is in the name) Paris Police 1905 follows Paris police’s vice squad – on the orders of Police Chief Lépine – as it begins to clean prostitutes off the city’s streets. However, a man’s body is found in the Bois de Boulogne and Inspector Antoine Jouin is entrusted with the investigation.

    Here’s a French-language trailer:

    The six-episode series will once again be told in weekly double-bills.

  2. John Henry: Liverpool not for sale

    Speaking to the Boston Sports Journal, the 73-year-old was asked about potential plans to sell the Boston Red Sox, and instead discussed the situation at Anfield.

    “I know there has been a lot of conversation and quotes about LFC, but I keep to the facts: we merely formalised an ongoing process,” he replied.

    “Will we be in England forever? No. Are we selling LFC? No. Are talking with investors about LFC? Yes.


    Will something happen there? I believe so, but it won’t be a sale. Have we sold anything in the past 20-plus years?”

    Footballer Christian Atsu has been found dead under the rubble of his home almost two weeks after the Turkey earthquake, his agent has confirmed.

    The Ghana international, 31, had spells with Premier League sides Everton, Chelsea and Newcastle.

    Atsu had been missing since the 6 February quake that caused the collapse of his apartment in Antakya, Hatay.

    "There are no words to describe our sadness," tweeted his Turkish top-flight club Hatayspor.

    Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad Al Thani, the chairman of one of Qatar's biggest banks, has confirmed his foundation will bid to buy Manchester United.

    BBC Sport understands that Ineos, owned by Sir Jim Ratcliffe, also officially made a bid before Friday's 22:00 GMT 'soft deadline' for proposals.

    Sheikh Jassim's Qatari consortium said: "The bid plans to return the club to its former glories.

    "The bid will be completely debt free via Sheikh Jassim's Nine Two Foundation, which will look to invest in the football teams, the training centre, the stadium and wider infrastructure, the fan experience and the communities the club supports.

    "The vision of the bid is for Manchester United to be renowned for footballing excellence, and regarded as the greatest football club in the world."


    Described as a life-long Manchester United fan, Sheikh Jassim is chairman of Qatari bank QIB and the son of a former prime minister of Qatar.

    His consortium did not provide any details on the amount they proposed to purchase the club for.

    There are also expected to be at least two offers for United from the United States, while there have been suggestions of interest from Saudi Arabia.

    That means there could be up to five parties trying to negotiate a full sale, with others looking to make a smaller investment in return for a partial stake in the 20-time English league champions

  5. A team of Israeli contractors who claim to have manipulated more than 30 elections around the world using hacking, sabotage and automated disinformation on social media has been exposed in a new investigation.

    The unit is run by Tal Hanan, a 50-year-old former Israeli special forces operative who now works privately using the pseudonym “Jorge”, and appears to have been working under the radar in elections in various countries for more than two decades.

    He is being unmasked by an international consortium of journalists. Hanan and his unit, which uses the codename “Team Jorge”, have been exposed by undercover footage and documents leaked to the Guardian.

  8. Two more Bosch spin-offs in the works, says report



    Amazon Prime TV’s Bosch series is getting another TWO spin-offs if reports are correct.

    The series – starring Titus Welliver and based on Michael Connelly’s award-winning books – has already received one spin-off (Bosch: Legacy), but now Deadline reports that two more are in the pipeline.

    The site says: “The first, the Untitled J. Edgar project, follows Harry Bosch’s former partner, Detective Jerry Edgar, who is tapped for an undercover FBI mission in Little Haiti, Miami. In this glamorous city, he is forced to balance his new life with the city’s gritty underbelly, while being chased by his mysterious past.

    “The second drama, the Untitled Renee Ballard project, centres around a character that has not appeared on the two Bosch series to date: Detective Renee Ballard, who is tasked with running the LAPD’s new cold case division. Beyond simply investigating unsolved crimes, Renee is dedicated to bringing credibility to the department and justice to the community. Having learned from retired ally and mentor Harry Bosch, Renee does things her way – solving cases in unconventional ways while navigating the politics of being a woman on the rise in the LAPD.”


    Showtime to expand ‘Billions’ & ‘Dexter’ franchises, remakes France’s ‘The Bureau’ with George Clooney


    Four Billions spin-offs are currently in development at Showtime, including Millions, Trillions, Billions: Miami and Billions: London. Meanwhile, Dexter: Origins has received a straight-to-series order, a continuation of 2021’s Dexter: New Blood is in development, and projects based on other characters in the series, such as the Trinity Killer, are being explored.

    Showtime has also placed a straight-to-series order for The Department (working title) to be directed by George Clooney.

    The project is based on the French drama Le Bureau Des Legendes, which aired on Canal+ from 2015 to 2020, and 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.
