Every Friday, TMINE lets you know the latest announcements about when new imported TV shows will finally be arriving on UK screens – assuming anyone’s bought anything, of course
There’s been less acquisition activity this week than there was last week, but there’s been one biggie: ABC (US)’s Marvel’s Inhumans, which Sky1 has picked up to air some time in the Autumn. I haven’t seen it, but by all accounts, even shooting the first episode on IMAX equipment didn’t make it either good or interesting. Still, have a trailer for it now and I’ll let you know what it’s like once it’s aired:
Meanwhile, the redoubtable Walter has decided he’d quite like to present Yes (Israel)’s מלאך של אמא (Mama’s Angel). That’s not going to air until next Summer and nope, haven’t seen it either.
That leaves only two premiere dates, both for shows that I haven’t seen: Dynasty and Mindhunter. No, I don’t know why this category is called what it’s called.
Dynasty (US: The CW; UK: Netflix)
Premiere date: Thursday, October 12
Do I really need to explain this one? Okay, fine.
Modernised reboot of the 1980s soap, Dynasty follows two of America’s wealthiest families, the Carringtons and the Colbys, as they feud for control over their fortune and their children. It stars Grant Show, Elizabeth Gillies, Nathalie Kelley, James Mackay, Alan Dale (aka Jim from Neighbours), Sam Adegoke, Robert Christopher Riley and Rafael de la Fuente.
Premiere date: Friday, October 13
Exec produced by David Fincher and Charlize Theron, based on the book Mind Hunter: Inside FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit and already renewed for a second season, Mindhunter is set in 1979 and revolves around two FBI agents (Jonathan Groff and Holt McCallany), who interview imprisoned serial killers in order to understand how such criminals think and apply it to solving ongoing cases. Anna Torv and Hannah Gross are in it, too.
