New British thriller ‘The Drowning’ is a Lifetime movie on steroids

“The Drowning” plays like a Lifetime movie on steroids — and that’s not meant to be derisive.This four-part British thriller, which set viewership records on Channel 5 in the UK, arrives Thursday (May 6) — and will premiere simultaneously on sister networks Sundance Now and Acorn TV…so there’s faith it will attract eyeballs.There’s no reason why it shouldn’t; the action is briskly paced and the storyline, about a mother who’s convinced a teenage boy is her presumably dead child, is shaded enough that you’re never quite sure who’s telling the truth here — or who’s got ulterior motives.Jill Halfpenny stars as Jodie Walsh, who’s still grieving the loss of her 4-year-old son, Tom.
