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
