Every Friday, TMINE lets you know when the latest TV shows from around the world will air in the UK
Christmas is naturally a bit quiet for acquisitions but we’re only a few days into the new year and yet we’ve already got two new premiere dates.
Magnum P.I. (US: CBS; UK: Sky1)
Premiere date: Wednesday, January 16, 9pm
Surprisingly decent reboot of the classic 80s private detective series remains faithful to the original while making it more diverse. In a world of cop and medical procedurals, a private investigator procedural also feels surprisingly fresh. The first episode is a bit too Fast and Furious for its own good, but fortunately, it settles down soon afterwards to become a solid piece of light fun.
Turn Up Charlie (Netflix)
Premiere date: Friday, March 15
Netflix original created by and starring Idris Elba. Charlie (Elba), a struggling DJ and eternal bachelor is given a final chance at success when he reluctantly becomes a manny to his famous best friend’s problem-child daughter. Also stars Piper Perabo, and features JJ Feild, Angela Griffin, Guz Khan, Jocelyn Jee Esein, Jade Anouka, Cameron King and Dustin Demri-Burns.
No trailer yet, unfortunately.
