Every episode of award-winning cop drama The Shield will be available to stream on All 4 – Channel 4’s subscription free on-demand and catch-up service – from April 24th.
Known for breaking conventions of the genre, this popular and critically acclaimed series from Sony Pictures Television, plays out in the tough, morally ambiguous world of an inner-city Los Angeles police precinct in which the line between good and evil is crossed every day.
Michael Chiklis (Fantastic Four, American Horror Story, Gotham) stars as Detective Vic Mackey, an effective but corrupt cop who operates under his own set of rules as leader of the elite Strike Team.
The young precinct head, Capt. David Aceveda (Benito Martinez – How to Get Away with Murder, Kill Your Darlings), doesn’t like Mackey’s tactics and wants him off the force, but veteran Det. Claudette Wyms (CCH Pounder – Avatar, Sons of Anarchy) understands Mackey and knows how to play both sides of the fence.
All 4 is available, mobile (iOS, Android, Windows Phone), console (Xbox, PlayStation) and big screen (YouView, FreeSat, Freeview Play, Samsung, Amazon Fire TV, Now TV) platforms. A syndicated version is also available via Sky and Virgin Media.
