Disney Plus is getting a slate of original scripted UK productions – one for the standard Disney+ library and two for the Star sub-section on the platform, which hosts more adult-oriented shows such as Atlanta and The X-Files.
The three new productions include a family adventure series, a heist drama, and a anti-superhero comedy. The scripted shows will join the first British Disney+ unscripted series, Save Our Squad, which follows David Beckham as he coaches a young football team who are in need of improvements.
We don’t know yet when these productions will debut on Disney+, just that they’re in the works right now. The three shows coming to Disney+ are:
The Ballad of Renegade Nell

The series follows Nell Jackson, a woman who, alongside her two sisters, is framed for murder. To make ends meet, she turns to a life of highway robbery. However, when she meets a little spirit called Billy Blind, she realises that fate has a lot more in store for her.
