Get Shorty 9pm, Sky At­lantic

The Herald on Sunday - Sunday Herald Life - - Tv and Radio -

It’s get­ting hard to keep up these days. The first se­ries of this com­edy drama, loosely based on El­more Leonard’s sly, sharp crime novel, only fin­ished on Sky At­lantic about two months ago, and here’s sea­son two al­ready. As we re­turn, Miles (an ex­cel­lent Chris O’Dowd), the low-rent hit­man turned movie pro­ducer, is hit­ting a down­ward spi­ral, with his angst over his di­vorce am­pli­fied by booze and debts. Mean­while, as he anx­iously awaits re­ac­tion to the first cut of his movie, The Ad­mi­ral’s Mis­tress, he casts around for an­other project.

Else­where, his co-pro­ducer Rick (Ray Ro­mano, form­ing a fine, slip­pery dou­ble act with O’Dowd), is lead­ing a dicey dou­ble life, caught be­tween the FBI and vi­cious gang boss Amara.
