Bryan Brown and Phoebe Tonkin in Bloom

When’s that show you mentioned starting, TMINE? Including Bloom, What/If, Mr Iglesias and When They See Us

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

As usual, it’s mostly Netflix shows announcing airdates this week, but we have a few others.


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

  • Surprisingly, Sky1, rather than Sky Atlantic, has picked up Cinemax (US)’s Warrior. That’ll start airing in June, but no exact date yet
  • Less surprisingly, it’s My5 that has acquired the first season of Crackle (US)’s The Oath

Premiere dates

Phoebe Tonkin and Jacki Weaver in Stan (Australia)’s Bloom

Bloom (Australia: Stan; UK: My5)
Premiere date: Wednesday, May 1

A flood devastates a remote Australian town, but a year later, a strange flower is found growing in select places that were flooded. And if you eat its buds, you’ll be restored to your youth – at least temporarily.

Bryan Brown sees his chance to restore dementing wife Jacki Weaver to her film star youth, but will she still want him when he does so? And who else might want to keep those buds to themselves?
