Every Friday, TMINE lets you know when the latest TV shows from around the world will air in the UK
With the LA screenings just around the corner in the US and UKTV probably having spent its entire budget for the year last week, it’s not unexpected that this week’s been a bit light on acquisitions. Only Syfy (US)’s Krypton has been picked up by E4, although there are no details as to when it’ll air, yet.
Otherwise, that’s it, although I should mention that if you have TV5, France 2’s L’art du crime (The Art of Crime) started a couple of weeks ago and airs every Friday afternoon.
Antoine Verlay, an unlikeable police officer but a good investigator, and Florence Chassage, a renowned yet neurotic art historian, are forced to work together on art trafficking. Antoine knows nothing about art, yet Florence frequently has conversations in her head with the late great dead painters…! To solve the crimes, the poorly matched duo must decipher the paintings to get to know the personality of the artist, and understand the motivations of the thief. A funny and exciting clash of cultures and crime capers ensue…
Cast: Nicolas Gob (Antoine Verlay), Éléonore Bernheim (Florence Chassagne), Philippe Duclos (Pierre Chassagne), Benjamin Egner (Pardo), Stéphan Wojtowicz (Bertrand), Louis-Do de Lencquesaing (Charles Varane), Emmanuel Noblet (Hugo Prieur), Farida Rahouadj (the psychologist), Miou-Miou (Catherine Dutilleul), Venantino Venantini (Léonard de Vinci)
