What time, TMINE? Including Manifest, Nicolas Le Floch and Typewriter

Nicolas Le Floch

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

With the summer holidays fast approaching, new acquisition activity is dying down. Only a few shows picked up this week and they all have premiere dates, so all the deets about Manifest, Nicolas Le Floch and Typewriter after the jump.

BTW, I’m off to a wedding next Friday, so the next ‘What time, TMINE?’ will be on 19th July. That will be the final one before TMINE’s traditional summer break, I’m afraid…

When Montego Air Flight 828 landed safely after a turbulent but routine flight, the crew and passengers were relieved. Yet in the span of those few hours, the world had aged five years and their friends, families and colleagues, after mourning their loss, had given up hope and moved on.

Now, faced with the impossible, they’re all given a second chance. But as their new realities become clear, a deeper mystery unfolds and some of the returned passengers soon realise they may be meant for something greater than they ever thought possible.

Stars: Josh Dallas, Melissa Roxburgh, Athena Karkanis, JR Ramirez, Luna Blaise, Jack Messina and Parveen Kaur.
