What time, TMINE? Including Treadstone and Stockholm Requiem


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

So here’s a developing trend – shows being acquired before they’ve even been made, of which we’ve had quite a few this week. The drawback of these is that you can’t tell when they’re going to air because they’ve not aired in their native countries yet. And, of course, you can’t read my reviews of them to see if they’re worth bothering with.

Still, it is what it is. But we do at least have a couple of shows with actual premiere dates, you’ll be glad to hear.

TV3 (Norway)’s Wisting


  • The BBC has picked up Viaplay/TV2/SVT (Scandinavia)’s Utredningen (The Investigation). That’s still being made
  • Walter Presents has acquired Één (Belgium)’s De Twaalf (The Twelve). No airdate yet, because it’s Walter
  • Amazon’s got hold of the latest spin-off from AMC (US)’s The Walking Dead. That’s so new, it doesn’t even have a title yet, so the best guess is “some time in 2020”
  • This very day, BBC Four has acquired TV3 (Norway)’s Wisting. That’ll air some time this year.

After the jump, though, details and premiere dates for Jason Bourne spin-off Treadstone and Scandi Noir Sthlm Rekviem (Stockholm Requiem).
