Airdates

When’s that show you mentioned starting, TMINE? Including Well Intended Love, The Other Two, High Seas and The Act

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

As usual, it’s mostly Netflix shows announcing airdates this week, but we have a few others.

Acquisitions

The following shows have been acquired this week, but don’t yet have a premiere date:

  • Netflix has picked up the South Korean version of its own series, Designated Survivor. CJ ENM’s Designated Survivor: 60 Days will be available on Netflix some time in July
  • It’s also picked up SBS (South Korea)’s stuntman spy drama Vagabond. That’s going to be available on Netflix in September.

Premiere dates

Well Intended Love

Well Intended Love (China: Sohu TV; UK: Netflix)

Premiere date: Friday, May 17

To receive a bone marrow transplant sooner and to continue her career, an actress with leukaemia enters into a secret marriage with the CEO of a company. Despite the conspiracies and misunderstandings they encounter, the two find true love.

The Other Two

The Other Two (US: Comedy Central; UK: E4)

Premiere date: Thursday, May 23, 10pm

The Other Two is a satire of the entertainment industry that takes a cynically witty look at fame, success and belonging. The story follows siblings Cary (Drew Tarver) and Brooke (Helene Yorke) who are trying to find their place in the world. Cary is an aspiring actor, struggling to find roles. Brooke, a former professional dancer, is just trying to work out what she’s doing with her life. But it all becomes a little more complicated when their 13-year-old brother Chase (Case Walker) finds sudden internet fame as teen pop sensation ChaseDreams…

Along with Hollywood-ready mother Pat (Molly Shannon) and newly hired manager Streeter (Ken Marino), Cary and Brooke must work hard to simultaneously cash in on their brother’s success and help him as he grows up in this crazy new world.

Netflix's High Seas

High Seas (Netflix)

Premiere date: Friday, May 24

Spanish original. It’s the 1940s and the Bárbara de Braganza has just departed from Spain for Rio de Janeiro. Two sisters, Eva (Ivana Baquero) and Carolina (Alejandra Onieva), are as different as they are inseparable; and a handsome officer, Nicolás Sala (Jon Kortajarena), a man that fate has put in the wrong place, team together to solve a mystery – the murder of a passenger whose name does not appear in the passenger list and who no one remembers.

Also stars: Jose Sacristán and Eloy Azorín

Hulu's The Act

The Act (US: Hulu; UK: StarzPlay)

Premiere date: Friday, June 14

The Act is an anthology series telling a new true-crime story each season. The first season follows Gypsy Blanchard, a girl trying to escape the toxic relationship she has with her overprotective mother. Her quest for independence opens a Pandora’s box of secrets, one that ultimately leads to murder.

Stars: Patricia Arquette, Joey King, Chloë Sevigny and AnnaSophia Robb.
