Time Traveling Bong
Airdates

When’s that show you mentioned starting, TMINE? Including Time Traveling Bong and Rig 45

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

More acquisitions than premiere dates this week, but at least two of those acquisitions are going to hit UK screens next month.

Project Blue Book

Acquisitions

  • Syfy has picked up History (US)’s really pretty poor UFO period drama Project Blue Book. That will air some time starting in March.
  • Universal has bought Fox’s Proven Innocent. That’s not aired in the US yet, but should air here in March, too.
  • Netflix has acquired RÚV (Iceland)’s The Valhalla Murders. That’s still in production, though, so don’t expect a premiere date for some time. Given that it’s only likely to air in Iceland at Christmas, I reckon it’ll be 2020 at least before it comes our way.
  • E4 has acquired ABC (US)’s Speechless. That was originally picked up by Channel 5, but never aired for some reason. No premiere date yet, but Channel 4 says ‘soon’

Premiere dates

Time Traveling Bong

Time Traveling Bong (US: Comedy Central; UK: Comedy Central)
Premiere date: Sunday, February 17, 11pm

Time Travelling Bong follows two mediocre, suburban cousins who live together in a condo left to them by their grandmother in New Jersey. Their lives take a twisted turn when they find a bong that also serves as a time machine that transports them to Salem, Massachusetts in the height of the witch trial era, the racially segregated South in the 1960s, ancient Greece and even the dystopian future, among other times and places. Their buzz is killed when the bong breaks and they are forced to bounce around the space time continuum, learning to appreciate that there’s no time like the present.

Stars Ilana Glazer and Paul W Downs.

Rig 45

Rig 45 (Scandinavia: Viaplay; UK: StarzPlay)
Premiere date: Friday, February 22

Mostly English-language but also frequently Scandinavian drama Rig 45. Benthos Oil sends an investigator to look at a fatal accident on a North Sea rig. Met by an inexplicable wall of silence from the crew, she starts to suspect something is very wrong – and when a hurricane hits the rig, cutting off all communications, the crew find themselves battling the elements and a devious killer.

Stars Catherine Walker, Gary Lewis, Lisa Henni and Søren Malling.
