When’s that show you mentioned starting, TMINE? Including Auf kurze Distanz and Dead Man Working

Dead Man Working (Deadly Money)

Every Friday, TMINE lets you know when the latest TV shows from around the world will air in the UK

Like Christmas, Thanksgiving in the US seems to last about a fortnight, killing all work within its vicinity. As a result, there have been no new acquisitions this week and even premiere dates have been thin on the ground.

However, Walter Presents does have two new German thrillers and although these aren’t definite premiere dates, the best guess is that both of them are going to be available from next Friday (December 7), so I thought I’d tell you about them now before it’s too late. In both cases, these were Wednesday movies on the TV channel Das Erste that have been split into two episodes for Walter’s benefit.

No sign yet of a rescheduled premiere date for Das Boot, by the way. Looks like Sky Atlantic are going to wait until it’s finished airing in Germany before showing it here.

Premiere dates

Auf kurze Distanz (Point Blank)

Despite already having an English title, Walter has decided to rename this banking thriller Deadly Money. When a top banker falls from a roof at the pinnacle of his career, a bitter battle erupts between his employer and his widow.
