Acorn TV Original Series ACCEPTABLE RISK coming, to DVD and Blu-ray on December 26, 2017. This edge-of-the-seat thriller follows Sarah Manning (Elaine Cassidy, The Paradise, No Offence, The Others) as she comes to realize how little she knew about her husband, Lee, before he was murdered. Her growing suspicions around his death lead Sarah to confront a powerful conspiracy of corporate, police and political interests, extending from Dublin to Montreal, in which her own family may be complicit. The DVD and Blu-ray 2-Disc Sets feature 6 episodes, plus over an hour of bonus cast interviews and behind-the-scenes featurettes. Acceptable Risk made its U.S. premiere in October 2017 on Acorn TV. Called a “glorious streaming service… an essential must-have” (The Hollywood Reporter), Acorn TV is North America’s most popular and largest streaming service focused on British and international television.
When Sarah Manning’s husband, Lee, is killed while on business in Montreal, her life back in Dublin starts to spin out of control. Sarah soon realizes she knew little about her husband’s past or his job at a powerful international pharmaceutical company. Assigned to the case, Detective Emer Byrne (Angeline Ball, Shameless [UK]) doggedly investigates the conflicting evidence, even in defiance of her superior’s order. As more lies surface, Sarah begins to suspect that Lee’s murder could be connected to the death of her first husband. Did both men know a terrible secret that got them killed?
