Hugo Sanchez
Airdates

When’s that show you mentioned starting, TMINE? Including Le bureau (saison 3), La balada de Hugo Sánchez, Nit i Dia, All About the Washingtons and The Good Cop

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

The LA Screenings have gone and gone. That means that a lot of UK networks are currently mulling their options about what to acquire, rather than actually buying things – where do you think we live? Canada? – which means it’s been a bit quiet this week for US pick-ups.

But we do have least have Netflix to tide us over. Oh, and although I don’t normally bother with second and third seasons airdates, it’s probably worth mentioning (via Fans of European and World TV Dramas) that season 3 of Le bureau des légendes (The Bureau) is finally now available on Amazon Prime. Unfortunately, it’s through the Sundance Now channel, which will set you back £5.99 a month, although there’s a week’s free trial. Cheaper than Blu-Ray, mind.

Premiere dates

Hugo Sanchez

La balada de Hugo Sánchez (The Ballad of Hugo Sánchez) (Netflix)
Premiere date: Sunday, June 17

Spin-off from Netflix’s Club de Cuervos featuring the Hugo Sánchez character, who’s taking the Cuervos to a tournament in Nicaragua called “Duelo de las Aves”. For the first time, Hugo leaves his comfort zone to take charge of a team and his own life.

Nit i Dia

Nit i Dia (Night and Day) (Spain: TV3; UK: Channel 4/All4)
Premiere date: Sunday, July 1, 10pm

Picked up all the way back in April 2017 by our Walter, this “realistic” Catalan series sees happily married forensic pathologist Sara’s life go a bit pear-shape when she starts investigating an unidentified man’s body and it turns out he has a skull tattoo, just like the one a previous one-night stand had.

All About The Washingtons

All About The Washingtons (Netflix)
Premiere date: Friday, August 10

Autobiographical scripted comedy that follows Joey Washington (Rev Run aka Joseph Simmons) and his wife Justine Washington (Justine Simmons), playing fictionalised versions of themselves raising a family. After Joey decides to retire from a long career as legendary hip-hop royalty, his wife Justine, takes advantage of the opportunity to pursue a career of her own now that Joey is available to focus on raising the kids and keeping the house in order.

The Good Cop

The Good Cop (Netflix)
Premiere date: Friday, September 21

Feel-good procedural, from Monk creator Andy Breckman, that centres on Tony Danza, a lovable, yet not exactly honourable, former NYPD officer who never followed the rules, and his son, Josh Groban, a brilliant, straight-laced NYPD detective who makes a point of always following the rules. The ‘odd couple’ become unofficial partners as Danza offers his son blunt, street-wise advice.

When’s that show you mentioned starting, TMINE? Including Stan Against Evil, Brockmire, Pulsaciones, Dietland, Station 19, Barry and Siren

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

A couple of weeks’ worth of acquisitions and premiere dates to catch up on, but you’ll be delighted to hear there are at least some new shows headed to the UK in the near future. Some, in fact, are already here.

On the acquisitions front, “actor turned detective” Jerry O’Connell show Carter (AXN) has been picked up by Alibi and will air in 2018. Also airing some time this year (probably) is The Detail (Canada: CTV), which will be on Channel 5. Everything else that’s been acquired I can actually give you premiere dates for:

Premiere dates

Stan Against Evil

Stan Against Evil (US: IFC; UK: Fox UK)
Airs: Thursdays, 11.30pm (started yesterday)

Retired crotchety sheriff John C McGinley has to rejoin the action when witches and all manner of other supernatural beasts start to terrorist his town. It’s a comedy, mind.

Episode reviews: 1-4

Brockmire

Brockmire (US: IFC; UK: Fox UK)
Airs: Fridays, 12.00am (started today)

Hank Azaria plays Jim Brockmire, a famed major league baseball announcer who suffers an embarrassing and very public meltdown live on the air after discovering his beloved wife’s serial infidelity. A decade later, Jim decides to reclaim his career and love life in a small American rust belt town that has seen better days, calling minor league baseball games for the Morristown Frackers. The struggling team is led by Amanda Peet, the strong-willed, hard-drinking owner, and Tyrel Jackson Williams, the naïve but enthusiastic team intern.

Pulsaciones

Pulsaciones (Lifeline) (Spain: Antena 3; UK: Channel 4/All 4)
Premiere date: Sunday, April 15, 10pm

Heart transplant recipient (Pablo Derqui) starts getting visions of the donor’s life. To avoid going mad, he must complete the donor’s unfinished business and help to discover with the help of a journalist (Meritxell Calvo) why people are disappearing in Madrid.

Station 19

Station 19 (US: ABC; UK: Sky Living)
Premiere date: Wednesday, April 18, 10pm

Grey’s Anatomy spin-off about firefighters. Nuff said.

Henry Winkler in HBO's Barry

Barry (US: HBO; UK: Sky Atlantic)
Premiere date: Thursday, April 26, 10.45pm

Hitman Bill Hader is getting tired of his job and decides he’d like to be an actor instead, so joins Henry Winkler’s acting classes. Trouble is, the job might not let him get very far with his new career. Same tone as Grosse Pointe Blank, but not as funny.

Episode reviews: 1

Siren

Siren (US: Freeform; UK: Syfy)
Premiere date: Thursday, May 3, 9pm

Mermaid ventures onto dry land to find her missing sister – and is willing to kill anyone who gets in her way. A nice idea with a great lead that’s miles away from Splash and The Little Mermaid, but the show’s let down by the rest of its cast.

Episode reviews: 1-3

Dietland

Dietland (US: AMC; UK: Amazon)
Premiere date: Tuesday, June 5

Dark Marti Noxon comedy that follows fashion magazine writer Joy Nash as she takes ‘a journey to self-awakening’ while exploring a multitude of issues faced by women today, including patriarchy, misogyny, rape culture and unrealistic beauty standards. Julianna Margulies plays her boss.

So fresh, there’s not even a YouTube trailer yet! This might work for Americans, though:
