When’s that show you mentioned starting again, TMINE? Including The Deuce, Law & Order: True Crime, X Company, Room 104, Snatch and Alias Grace

Every Friday, TMINE lets you know the latest announcements about when new imported TV shows will finally be arriving on UK screens – assuming anyone’s bought anything, of course

After last week’s deafening silence when it came to acquisitions, it’s all go this week, and we’ve got a flood of premiere dates, too, you’ll be glad to hear. Indeed, the only new acquisition that hasn’t already been given a premiere date is The Orville (US: Fox: UK: Fox UK), which I reviewed earlier this week. I’ll let you know when it’s revealed. I’m assuming it’s not going to be kept a secret, anyway.

After the jump, pop-pickers, I’ll be giving you the rundown of all the new acquisitions and their matching premiere dates. See you in a mo…

Weekly Wonder Woman: Wonder Woman #30

Yes, it’s Weekly Wonder Woman – keeping you up to date on pretty much anything involving DC Comics’ premier superheroine, including how much Patty Jenkins is getting paid to direct Wonder Woman 2

Another week’s gone by. Can you believe it? I hope you’ve all been off helping the sick and needy, studying for your third masters degree or doing something equally worthy. Because I’ve been surfing the Internet, watching tele and reading comics, so someone somewhere had better be doing something worthwhile, for all our sakes.

Here’s what I learned.

Movie news

The big news is that Patty Jenkins has been hired to direct Wonder Woman 2 and is getting paid a big chunk of cash to do it – at (roughly) $8m, which is eight times what she got for Wonder Woman, she’s now officially the highest paid female director ever.

She’s also co-writing the sequel and although the plot is tightly under wraps (maybe the Cold War, maybe with the Invisible Jet), all we can say for sure is that she’s going to be co-writing it with Geoff Johns (again) and now Dave Callahan. Callahan’s best known for writing The Expendables, but he was also working with Jenkins on an adaptation of Jo Nesbo’s Jackpot before the big chunk of cash arrived. I’m guessing that’s on hold for a while now.

Meanwhile, publicity for the release of Wonder Woman on Blu-Ray continues apace, with more clips from the extras. Top of these again is another Etta Candy video, this time about Steve Trevor:

But there’s also a clip about the photograph linking Wonder Woman with Batman v Superman:

Of course, Blu-Ray isn’t the only way to watch Wonder Woman and in the US, you can watch it on DirecTV Cinema. Rather nicely, they’ve put out an ad for it that’s voiced by none other than Susan Eisenberg – the voice of Wonder Woman for an entire generation who grew up on the Justice League cartoons:

That’s about it though, so after the jump, we’ll be looking at the only comic of note to feature Diana this week: Wonder Woman #30. TTFN!

ABC's The Mayor
US TV

Preview: The Mayor 1×1 (US: ABC)

In the US: Tuesdays, 9.30/8.30c, ABC. Starts October 3

For much of the past year, there’s been an ongoing race to see which TV show will be the undoubted first of ‘the Trump era’. Did The Good Fight get there first with its inclusion of the Trump inauguration, alt-right characters and people being discriminated against for voting Trump? Arguably not, as it wasn’t really about Trump.

How about any of the legion of forthcoming military shows due on US screens within the month? Are they going to claim the title by arguing that they speak to conservative concerns?

If they do, they’ll be too late because we now have The Mayor. On the face of it, it’s an unlikely winner, given it’s about a small-time Californian rapper (Search Party‘s Brandon Micheal Hall) hoping to hit the big time. However, Hall decides to boost his career by entering his city’s mayoral elections. His ignorance of policy shines through at debates, much to the disgust of his opponent’s totally clued in and competent manager (Glee‘s Lea Michele).

But his appeal to ‘the common man’ nevertheless means that when election day rolls round, he actually wins the contest he had no intention of winning and has to become mayor.

“Did the Russians hack the voting machines?” asks his best friend and campaign manager.

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner. The Mayor is ‘Trump Show: The First’.
