HBO's Succession
Airdates

When’s that show you mentioned starting, TMINE? Including Succession, Fangar and Carcereiros

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

Only a couple of premiere-less acquisitions this week, with Walter Presents picking up Channel 2 (Iceland)’s Réttur (The Court) and C More (Sweden)’s Farang. The former will air in September, while the latter will air towards the end of the year.

Otherwise, everything’s got a date.

Premiere dates

Fangar

Fangar (Prisoners) (Iceland: RÚV; UK: Sundance)
Premiere date: Now

One of Sundance’s sneaky acquisitions, this Prix-Europa nominated drama sees 30 year-old Linda (Thora Bjorg Helga) accused of a deadly assault and sent to prison. She gets to know women of a different social class than her, from a broken environment. Slowly, a bond develops between her and the other women inmates and the series focuses on why things happen and how it affects the family and society as a whole.

Sounds a bit Orange is the New Black.

 Jailers

Carcereiros (Jailers) (Brazil: Globo Play; UK: Sundance)
Premiere date: Now

The second of Sundance’s new prison shows – what’s that all about then? – is from Brazil. The difference here is that as well as being about blokes, it’s from the jailers’ point of view. Based on Dráuzio Varela’s novel of the same name, it stars Rodrigo Lombardi as Adriano, a correctional officer who endures the difficulties of prison life – both his own and those of the inmates. Adriano is charged with keeping the peace inside the jail but also faces pressures in his home life, from his wife who wants a baby, to his teenage daughter and his father, a former jailer himself. Tested daily with ethical and moral dilemmas, he lives between walls and prison bars, weapons, threats and conflicts – both human and psychological.

Jeremy Strong in Succession

Succession (US: HBO; UK: Sky Atlantic)
Premiere date: Thursday, August 2, 9pm

Created by Peep Show‘s Jesse Armstrong and with support from some The Thick of It writers, Succession follows the Roy family – Logan Roy and his four children – which controls one of the biggest media and entertainment conglomerates in the world, tracking their lives as they contemplate what the future will hold for them once their ageing father begins to step back from the company.

Cough, cough, the Murdochs, cough, cough.

It’s already been renewed for a second season, and stars Brian Cox, Jeremy Strong, Hiam Abbass, Sarah Snook, Kieran Culkin, Alan Ruck, Nicholas Braun, Matthew Macfadyen, Natalie Gold, Peter Friedman and Rob Yang. I found the first few episodes very funny, but it slowly switched from being a comedy with some drama to being a drama with the occasional comedy, which didn’t work for me.

Episode reviews: 1-2, 3, 4
