Acorn will release the third and final season of the 1987-90 WWII spy show Wish Me Luck on July 26. Wish Me Luck follows the fact-based exploits of female agents of Britain's SOE behind enemy lines in occupied France. Here's Acorn's official copy:
While World War II rages, British women risk their lives as undercover agents in occupied France. As D-Day approaches, the team gets a critically important assignment: to help stage an uprising that will divert German resources from the landings in Normandy. Now heading the team’s London office, Faith Ashley (Jane Asher, A Voyage Round My Father) recruits two new agents to work in Le Crest, a Resistance stronghold in the French Alps.
Based on actual events in Vassieux-en-Vercors, a town in France famed for its acts of resistance during the German occupation, the final series of this gripping wartime drama features strong female characters, historical authenticity, and spectacular scenery. The suspense builds toward an emotional, action-packed finale. Also starring Shirley Henderson (Bridget Jones’s Diary), Jane Snowden (All Passion Spent), Kate Buffery (Trial & Retribution), Terrence Hardiman (Cadfael) as General Stuckler, and Michael J. Jackson (Doctors) as Resistance leader Kit Vanston.Retail for the 2-disc set is $39.99, though it can be pre-ordered for less than that on Amazon.
