False Flag

When’s that show you mentioned starting again, TMINE? Including כפולים (False Flag), Blood Drive and What Would Diplo Do?

Every Friday, TMINE lets you know the latest announcements about when new, imported TV shows will finally be arriving on UK screens

No fewer than three premiere dates for you this week. First up is Israel’s כפולים (False Flag), which aired on Channel 2 there in 2015 but has now been acquired by Fox UK. An eight-parter created by Amit Cohen and Maria Feldman and inspired by the real-life assassination of a Hamas leader by Mossad agents, it sees five Israeli citizens find themselves implicated in a ruthless kidnapping operation following the disappearance of the Iranian Defence Minister while on a secret visit to Moscow. It stars Ishai Golan, Maggie Azarzar, Ania Bukstein, Angel Bonanni, Orna Salinger and Mickey Leon, and starts 31 July at 9pm.

The less said about the severely awful Blood Drive, the better, but in case my review of the first episode didn’t put you off, it starts 10 August at 10pm.

Lastly, What Would Diplo Do? premieres on Viceland on 18 October at 10pm. Coincidentally, I wrote about that this week, so I won’t repeat myself.
