Acorn TV's London Kills
Airdates

When’s that show you mentioned starting, TMINE? Including Dead To Me, Undercover and The Society

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

Acquisitions

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

  • Paramount UK has picked up Paramount US’s forthcoming Emily in Paris. That’s not gone into production and won’t air in the US until 2020, so let’s not be too harsh on them for not telling us when we can watch it over here.
  • BBC One has acquired Acorn (US)’s London Kills. That’s BBC One importing a US drama filmed in London from a US network dedicated to importing UK TV shows. My head hurts.
  • More 4 has bought up Global (Canada)’s Mary Kills People. No idea why they can’t tell us when that’s airing.

Oops, I missed it

Meanwhile, in a new sub-feature of “When’s that show starting?”, I’m going to be highlighting foreign shows that have had airdates announced but which I somehow missed or that didn’t and have just become available in the UK. Oops.

Anna Loos and Matthias Matschke in ZDF (Germany)’s Helen Dorn

Helen Dorn (Germany: ZDF; UK: Walter Presents)

Helen Dorn (Anna Loos) is an expert police commissioner, whose years of experience have given her a killer instinct when it comes to crime. Fearless and tenacious, her drive and perseverance have won her a reputation for being the best in her field. Despite a robust and resilient exterior, she hides a vulnerable side which is grounded in her past.

On the department head’s orders, Helen Dorn become involuntary partners with Detective Chief Superintendent Gregor Georgi (Matthias Matschke), with Helen in the role of Georgi’s superior. After initially ruffling some feathers, as Gregor thought he was about to take over a case as head investigator and not confronted with a new superior, the two prove to be a solid pairing: Helen’s famed intuition is matched by Gregor’s rational analysis and precision. But will he be able to unearth her mysterious past?

The Secret City (Russia: Janson Media; UK: Amazon)

Based on the sci-fi novels of Vadim Panov about “the other” Moscow where in a parallel reality the last representatives of the disappeared civilizations live. For thousands of years in the territory of Moscow there existed another – the Secret City, inhabited by those who ruled long before humans.

I know literally nothing about this and I’ve been able to find out about the same. Can’t even find a trailer. But it’s here.
