Every Friday, TMINE lets you know when the latest TV shows from around the world will air in the UK
Another slow week for acquisitions, with only the redoubtable Walter choosing to buy anything at all, and he’s gone for a couple of French thrillers, both from France Télévisions:
- Maman a tort (Mother is Wrong)
- Noces rouges (Crimson Wedding)
Otherwise, it’s all up to Netflix, as per usual.
Premiere date: Friday, June 14
Netflix US original based on the YA novel by Kirsten “Kiwi” Smith. It follows a group of girls after they meet each other in Shoplifters Anonymous. At first glance, the three high schoolers are worlds apart, but everything changes once the three meet.

Ad Vitam (France: Arte; UK: Netflix)

In an age of medical technology that allows people to stay young and live forever, a cop and a rebellious 20-something investigate the mass suicide of seven teenagers.
Family Business (Netflix)
