What to watch on TV tonight: Sunday

Here are the shows that will be on your Twitter timeline later.

Woah, woah, pretty woman.
Woah, woah, pretty woman.

Every lunchtime, DailyEdge.ie rounds up the TV shows that you’ll be tweeting about tonight and talking about tomorrow.

Pretty Woman (RTÉ One, 9.30pm)

There’s some kind of law that if Pretty Woman is on TV, you must watch it, right? Thought so. Richard Gere stars as a lonely millionaire and Julia Roberts is the girl he pays to keep him company. #BigMistakeHuge

A two party documentary drama which tells the story of the invasion of Ireland by Robert the Bruce in the 14th century. War of The Three Kings is narrated by actor Brian Cox and features Clive Russell as Robert and Douglas Russell as his brother Edward. #WarOfTheThreeKings

Amazon has signed up Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond for three seasons after the BBC was forced to say goodbye to Top Gear after one hames too many.

Bezos has told The Sunday Telegraph that producing the show will be “very very expensive” but says that he feels it will be a worldwide hit.

Amazon has already found success with the likes of Transparent, while it also bought the US rights to the hit Channel 4 comedy Catastrophe which stars Irish actress and comic Sharon Horgan.
