What time, TMINE? Including Vagrant Queen, Lincoln Rhyme and Upload

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

People in TV seem to be getting used to the new normal, since we’re getting a few more acquisitions and premiere dates coming through.

Acquisitions

  • Vagrant Queen (US: Syfy) got picked up by Syfy UK. That starts at 9pm on April 15, but I reviewed the first episode yesterday, so will say no more about it here.
  • Lincoln Rhyme (US: NBC) also got acquired, this time by Sky Witness. However, that’s only got a vague airdate of ‘April’, so I’ll hold off giving it a full write-up until we get something more definite.

That just leaves…

UK premiere dates

Upload (Amazon)

UK premiere date: Friday, May 1

From Emmy-Award winning writer Greg Daniels (The Office, Parks and Recreation) comes Upload, a new sci-fi comedy series set in a technologically advanced future where hologram phones, 3D food printers and automated grocery stores are the norm. Most uniquely, humans can choose to be “uploaded” into a virtual afterlife when they find themselves near-death.

The series follows a young app developer, Nathan Brown (Robbie Amell), who winds up in the hospital following a self-driving car accident, needing to quickly decide his fate. After a rushed deliberation with his shallow girlfriend Ingrid (Allegra Edwards), he chooses to be uploaded to her family’s luxurious virtual afterlife, the Horizen company’s “Lakeview”.

Once uploaded in Lakeview, Nathan meets his customer service “Angel” Nora Anthony (Andy Allo), who at first is his charismatic concierge and guide, but quickly becomes his friend and confidante, helping him navigate this new digital extension of life.
