Every Friday, TMINE lets you know when the latest TV shows from around the world will air in the UK
Not many premiere dates this week, I’m afraid. In fact, just the one and it’s a Netflix original: Away. Details after the jump.
- Netflix has acquired Vier (Belgium)’s Soil. That will air in 2021
- Sky Witness has acquired ABC (US)’s For Life, but there’s not even a hint as to when that will air
Oops, I missed it
Westside (New Zealand: TV3; UK: The Roku Channel)
To be fair, everyone else missed this, too, since it’s on The Roku Channel, the free channel available to anyone who has a Roku device. Nevertheless, it does appear to be the first time any channel in the UK has shown this.
The prequel to long-running crime drama Outrageous Fortune, Westside tells the story of legendary safe cracker and career criminal Ted West and his firecracker wife Rita. All five seasons (a sixth is on the way) are currently available.
Stars: Antonia Prebble, David de Lautour, Dan Musgrove
