Irma Vep

Tuesday, 9pm, Sky Atlantic

This quirky eight-episode metadrama follows the production of a modern-day reboot of the 1915 crime film series Les Vampires. Hollywood star Mira (Oscar winner Alicia Vikander) is ready to don a velvet jumpsuit to play the lead role of mugger Irma Vep on a set where the team is obsessed with her character. Her typically troubled French director René (Vincent Macaigne) tells her that Irma was “pure evil, in a sexy way”, another worker says “she unleashed the fantasies of fear”, and Mira grows increasingly curious about her role. Eventually, the line between real life and fantasy starts to blur – which can only lead to trouble… Hollie Richardson

movie choice

Theater of Blood (Douglas Hickox, 1973), 12:05, Talking Pictures TV
