Pose

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

Acquisitions

  • A new one this, with BBC Alba (yes, that the Scottish-language one) picking up Gaelic love triangle drama Grace Harte from Ireland’s TG4.

Premiere dates

Speechless

Speechless (US: ABC; UK: E4)
Premiere date: Monday, March 11, 7:30pm

‘Spunky mum’ Minnie Driver constantly fights to ensure that her disabled son is heard in school and in life. The show obviously has a good deal of background knowledge about the difficulties involved, but while it’s funny and smart at first, it runs out of profound things to say by about the fourth episode.

Episode reviews: 1, 2, 3, 4

Pose

Pose (US: FX; UK: BBC Two)
Premiere date: Thursday March 21, 10pm

Set in the 1980s, Pose explores the juxtaposition of several segments of life and society in New York: the ball culture world, the rise of the luxury Trump-era universe and the downtown social and literary scene. The cast includes Even Peters, Kate Mara, James Van Der Beek, Mj Rodriguez, Dominique Jackson, Indya Moore, Hailie Sahar, Angelica Ross. Billy Porter, Charlayne Woodard, Ryan Jamaal Swain and Dyllon Burnside.

The series has already been renewed for a second season and made TV history by assembling the largest cast of transgender actors in series regular roles ever for a scripted series, as well as the largest recurring cast of LGBTQ actors ever for a scripted series.
