The BBC has announced that the sixth season of its hit police corruption drama Line Of Duty will be extended by an episode.

The World Productions series, which plays on Netflix in a number of major territories and features on BritBox and Acorn TV in the U.S., will run for seven episodes rather than six when it returns this year.

The World to Come Katherine Waterston Vanessa Kirby

“With little pride and less hope, we begin the new year.” So starts Mona Fastvold’s mournful frontier romance “The World to Come,” on January 1st of 1856. (The film’s Sundance screening follows a premiere at Venice and precedes an imminent theatrical release.)

He has channeled all his emotions into their struggling farm, a hardscrabble plot in frigid upstate New York. She is pouring hers into the diary, when she’s not cooking, cleaning, milking cows and taking care of Dyer.

Into this austere existence blows Tallie (Vanessa Kirby), an outgoing new

‘Pleasure’ Review: A Raw and Real Drama About the L.A. Porn Industry

If you had to say what the biggest difference is between the porn industry of the 1970s and the porn industry of today, you’d probably start with the obvious and overwhelming fact that people used to watch porn in grungy movie theaters and now access it on the Internet. You might talk about how even though the porn industry is still driven by a star system, with brand names who treat themselves like multi-media commodities, the larger cosmos of porn has never been more squalidly democratized, with porn festering more than ever in a grimy gray zone between “professional” and “amateur” — between those who do it for a living and those who dip into it for stray cash, desperate circumstances, or simply for kicks.

Early goals from Emre Can and Jadon Sancho looked to be sending Dortmund through but Julian Justvan pulled a goal back for second division Paderborn in the 79th minute.

Haaland thought he had clinched victory for Dortmund when he scored in stoppage time but in a remarkable turn of events the goal was ruled out after a VAR review for an earlier foul in the Dortmund area, leading to a penalty for Paderborn.

Prince Osei Owusu slotted from
