Every Friday, TMINE lets you know when the latest TV shows from around the world will air in the UK
One very odd acquisition without a date this week, but everything else has a premiere announced.
Netflix has picked up USA (US)’s Dare Me, an adaptation of Megan Abbott’s novel of the same name. I said odd because there isn’t actually a TV series yet – and there wouldn’t be if Netflix hadn’t agreed to distribute it everywhere in the world except the US.
So no premiere date yet… because it hasn’t been made yet.
