Starring Iain Glen (Game of Thrones, Downton Abbey), Jack Taylor, Set 3 makes its U.S. Premiere on Acorn TV on Monday, March 27, 2017 and its DVD debut on March 28, 2017 from Acorn, an RLJ Entertainment, Inc. brand. Based on the bestselling crime fiction by Ken Bruen and filmed on location against the rugged backdrop of western Ireland, this gripping series follows Jack Taylor – a former cop fighting his own demons – as he works cases in Galway as a private detective. This action-packed crime noir showcases the rakish allure of its leading man with tantalizing mysteries and a bleak but beautiful setting. The DVD 3-Disc set includes three feature-length episodes, plus a photo gallery for each mystery ($49.99, AcornOnline.com). Set 3’s three new mysteries were broadcast in Ireland in late 2016 on TV3. Acorn TV is the premier North American streaming service for world-class television from Britain and beyond. Currently, the first two seasons are available to watch anytime with the third series added on March 27.
Self-destructive and pigheaded, with a talent for getting into trouble, Jack retains few friends from his time in the Irish Police, save for detective Kate Noonan (Siobhán O’Kelly, Dominion Creek). Aided by Kate and her cousin Darragh (Jack Monaghan, Hideaways), Jack delves into some of the darkest cases of his career.
- Cross : Jack’s investigation into the death of a man found crucified reveals that the victim’s brother was implicated in the hit-and-run death of a woman. Could the woman’s family members be out for revenge?
- Headstone : Jack races to find former nemesis Ronan Meyers, who has been kidnapped and is being held for ransom.
- Purgatory : Hired by the CEO of a software company to investigate the theft of valuable data, Jack takes an instinctive liking to the main suspect. When she is found dead, Jack suspects the CEO and vows to bring him down.
