Former Xpose presenter Lisa Cannon is launching her own online movie show after Virgin Media's Box Office was put on hold due to the lack of blockbusters being released.

Lisa's show, The Edit, will focus on the stars behind the camera as much as those in front of it.

She says that she has some big names from in front and behind the camera lined up to take part.

“Gordon Hayden is producing it alongside me so it is going to be professional and it is a half an hour show every Friday,” she told the Sunday World.

“Obviously the movie industry has had a big knock this year and it isn’t really up and running yet.

“So we are kicking off with Shane MacGowan’s new biopic Crock of Gold, we will also be drawing from Disney Plus and Netflix, because they are still delivering big releases.

“We also have an exclusive interview with Saoirse Monica Jackson from Derry Girls to launch the series, which is a lovely way to launch a show.

“She is on Sky Arts at the moment in a brilliant new series with Robbie Coltrane and we just had this lovely, grown up chat.

“But I also chat to the casting director from Normal People who gives me the lowdown on why Paul Mescall is the next big thing.

“It is different and fun and interesting and I hope people like it.”

She added: "The website that is hosting the new show is called the Style Edit.

“They are a UK based website and their Editor approached me to see if I would devise an arts and culture show for them.

“With everything having slowed down I had the time to give it a proper look.

"I could see that there was a push to bring television online and this seemed like the perfect vehicle for me."
