Every Friday, I let you know the latest announcements about when new, imported TV shows will finally be arriving on UK screens
This week’s new, undated acquisition from the US is FX’s Feud: Bette and Joan. I didn’t review this at the time, because I’m getting a bit bored of anthology shows, particularly those based on real-life events, particularly those by Ryan Murphy – which makes a Ryan Murphy anthology show dramatising real-life feuds, starting with Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, eminently missable. But BBC Two has picked it up, with plans to air it this year some time, you may or may not be glad to hear.
There was one other acquisition from the US this week: Queen of the South. Netflix (UK) has picked that up, just as season two has started in the US. When’s it airing? Well, right now. Not much notice that, sorry. I reviewed the first two episodes of that last year, if you want to find out if it’s worth a watch (spoiler: watch Narcos instead – that’s on Netflix, too).
Lastly – and indeed bestly – someone has seen sense and decided to acquire Fox (US)’s Son of Zorn. It may have been cancelled already, but it was one of my top 13 shows of 2016 so kudos to Viceland (UK) for making it their first ever first-run UK acquisition. No kudos to me for noticing that it started airing on Monday, though.
