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

This being Thanksgiving week in America, when even sociopathic TV execs are back at home with their families and not doing any deals, it’s unsurprisingly been a bit quiet on the acquisitions front.

But we still have three new shows heading our way, complete with premiere dates. Full details on Shrill, The Gift and Klem (The Blood Pact) after the jump.

Premiere dates

Shrill (US: Hulu; UK: BBC Three)

Premiere date: Sunday, December 15

Based on Lindy West’s Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman, Shrill sees Saturday Night Live‘s Aidy Bryant playing a struggling journalist who also struggles with her weight, a terrible boyfriend, every relationship she has and more. However, when she ends up pregnant by terrible boyfriend because she doesn’t want to deprive him of his favourite thing – having sex without a condom – she decides enough is enough. With the help of her best friend (the increasingly ubiquitous Lolly Adefope), she decides to assert herself and find her self-worth.

Turkish Netflix original. The series follows the life of Atiye, a young and beautiful painter who leads the perfect life in Istanbul. She has a loving family, a wealthy and lovable boyfriend, and to top it all off, she is about to open her first solo exhibition.

But her perfect life is about to change with a discovery made in the most ancient temple on Earth, Gobeklitepe. An archeologist named Erhan discovers a symbol in the ruins, a symbol that connects Atiye to Gobeklitepe in a mysterious way. And now, Atiye will turn her life upside down and spark a quest to discover the secrets of her past, secrets hidden within those ancient ruins.
