Every Friday, TMINE lets you know when the latest TV shows from around the world will air in the UK
The LA Screenings have gone and gone. That means that a lot of UK networks are currently mulling their options about what to acquire, rather than actually buying things – where do you think we live? Canada? – which means it’s been a bit quiet this week for US pick-ups.
But we do have least have Netflix to tide us over. Oh, and although I don’t normally bother with second and third seasons airdates, it’s probably worth mentioning (via Fans of European and World TV Dramas) that season 3 of Le bureau des légendes (The Bureau) is finally now available on Amazon Prime. Unfortunately, it’s through the Sundance Now channel, which will set you back £5.99 a month, although there’s a week’s free trial. Cheaper than Blu-Ray, mind.
La balada de Hugo Sánchez (The Ballad of Hugo Sánchez) (Netflix)
Premiere date: Sunday, June 17
Spin-off from Netflix’s Club de Cuervos featuring the Hugo Sánchez character, who’s taking the Cuervos to a tournament in Nicaragua called “Duelo de las Aves”. For the first time, Hugo leaves his comfort zone to take charge of a team and his own life.
Nit i Dia (Night and Day) (Spain: TV3; UK: Channel 4/All4)
Premiere date: Sunday, July 1, 10pm
Picked up all the way back in April 2017 by our Walter, this “realistic” Catalan series sees happily married forensic pathologist Sara’s life go a bit pear-shape when she starts investigating an unidentified man’s body and it turns out he has a skull tattoo, just like the one a previous one-night stand had.
All About The Washingtons (Netflix)
Premiere date: Friday, August 10
Autobiographical scripted comedy that follows Joey Washington (Rev Run aka Joseph Simmons) and his wife Justine Washington (Justine Simmons), playing fictionalised versions of themselves raising a family. After Joey decides to retire from a long career as legendary hip-hop royalty, his wife Justine, takes advantage of the opportunity to pursue a career of her own now that Joey is available to focus on raising the kids and keeping the house in order.
The Good Cop (Netflix)
Premiere date: Friday, September 21
Feel-good procedural, from Monk creator Andy Breckman, that centres on Tony Danza, a lovable, yet not exactly honourable, former NYPD officer who never followed the rules, and his son, Josh Groban, a brilliant, straight-laced NYPD detective who makes a point of always following the rules. The ‘odd couple’ become unofficial partners as Danza offers his son blunt, street-wise advice.
