Every Friday, TMINE lets you know when the latest TV shows from around the world will air in the UK
This week’s been a weak week for acquisitions. But we do have three series’ premiere dates.
So join me after the jump to learn when you can watch ABC (US)’s The Fix as well as a show from TV4 (Sweden) called Enkelstöten, A Very Scandi Scandal or The Simple Heist, depending on whom you speak to.
Plus Netflix have (you guessed it) another superhero show on the way, except this one’s a comedy and Spanish. You can learn when you can watch The Neighbor after the jump, too.
The Fix (US: ABC; UK: Fox UK)
Premiere date: Thursday, November 28, 9pm
Thinly veiled version of the OJ Simpson trial, The Fix follows Maya Travis (Robin Tunney), an LA district attorney who suffers a devastating defeat when prosecuting an A-list actor (Adewale Akinnouye-Agbaje) for double murder. With her high-profile career derailed, she flees for a quieter life in Washington.
Eight years later when this same celebrity is under suspicion for another murder, Travis is lured back to the DA’s office for another chance at justice.
It’s not very good and it’s already been cancelled, so watch at your peril.
