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

It’s been a quiet old week, this week. That’s what you get in August, right after a bank holiday, I guess.

So there have been absolutely no acquisitions announced this week and only two premiere dates.

Premiere dates

e Legal
Michaël Erpelding (Louis), Fanny Dumont (Floriane), Raphaëlle Bruneau (Fran Gerrits), Olivia Harkay (Valentine Dhénaut)

e Legal (Belgium: RTBF La Une; UK: TV5 Monde)

Premiere date: Thursday September 5, 6.40pm

Valentine, an ambitious lawyer, has built her own law firm, DE FACTO, Inc., specialized in legal issues involving new technologies of the information age. She just recruited her cyber specialist, Fran, who happens to be her half-sister, a hacker on parole to boot. Together the duo will help various alleged victims (or perpetrators) of cyber criminality. On the sidelines, their intern, Theo, a young intern aspiring to be a legal eagle and looking up to Valentine, helps or throws oil on the fire.

So I’m not sure if this is the first time it’s been on TV5 Monde but it’s the first I’ve heard of it and the first time I’ve seen TV5 promote it. It was made in 2017, too, so chances are, it’s relatively new.

Here’s episode one, if you want to give it a try:
