What time, TMINE? Including Hightown

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

It’s a quiet one this week: no new shows acquired and just one new premiere date.

UK premiere dates

Hightown (US: Starz; UK: StarzPlay)

UK premiere date: Sunday, May 17

Set on Cape Cod, the eight-episode crime drama sees Jackie Quiñones, a hard-partying National Marine Fisheries Service agent – no, really – whose free-wheeling life is thrown into disarray when she discovers a body on the beach: another casualty of Cape Cod’s opioid epidemic. As a result of this trauma, Jackie takes the first steps toward becoming sober – until she becomes convinced that it’s up to her to solve the murder.

Jackie’s new mission puts her “at odds with Sergeant Ray Abruzzo , an abrasive but effective member of the Cape Cod Interagency Narcotics Unit, causing both of them to spiral as they lose themselves in the investigation.

Stars: Monica Raymund, James Badge Dale, Riley Voelkel, Shane Harper, Amaury Nolasco, Atkins Estimond and Dohn Norwood

Film

Orange Thursday: The Banker (2020)

Every Thursday, TMINE reviews two movies, carefully avoiding infringing a former mobile phone company’s trademarked marketing gimmick

Despite (theoretically) having more time to watch movies since The Event, the lack of open cinemas and good new things to watch on the streaming services has severely cramped Orange Thursday’s style. So there’s only one movie being reviewed today.

All the same, we do have the first Apple TV+ movie to peruse, The Banker (2020). Based on a true story, it sees Anthony Mackie and Samuel L Jackson going into business together in an effort to make money – and maybe help other African-Americans make money – in the 1960s.

Don’t worry: it’s better than it sounds.

See you after the ads and the trailers.
