Airdates

When’s that show you mentioned starting, TMINE? Including Well Intended Love, The Other Two, High Seas and The Act

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.

Acquisitions

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

  • Netflix has picked up the South Korean version of its own series, Designated Survivor. CJ ENM’s Designated Survivor: 60 Days will be available on Netflix some time in July
  • It’s also picked up SBS (South Korea)’s stuntman spy drama Vagabond. That’s going to be available on Netflix in September.

Premiere dates

Well Intended Love

Well Intended Love (China: Sohu TV; UK: Netflix)

Premiere date: Friday, May 17

To receive a bone marrow transplant sooner and to continue her career, an actress with leukaemia enters into a secret marriage with the CEO of a company. Despite the conspiracies and misunderstandings they encounter, the two find true love.

The Other Two

The Other Two (US: Comedy Central; UK: E4)

Premiere date: Thursday, May 23, 10pm

The Other Two is a satire of the entertainment industry that takes a cynically witty look at fame, success and belonging. The story follows siblings Cary (Drew Tarver) and Brooke (Helene Yorke) who are trying to find their place in the world. Cary is an aspiring actor, struggling to find roles. Brooke, a former professional dancer, is just trying to work out what she’s doing with her life. But it all becomes a little more complicated when their 13-year-old brother Chase (Case Walker) finds sudden internet fame as teen pop sensation ChaseDreams…

Along with Hollywood-ready mother Pat (Molly Shannon) and newly hired manager Streeter (Ken Marino), Cary and Brooke must work hard to simultaneously cash in on their brother’s success and help him as he grows up in this crazy new world.

Netflix's High Seas

High Seas (Netflix)

Premiere date: Friday, May 24

Spanish original. It’s the 1940s and the Bárbara de Braganza has just departed from Spain for Rio de Janeiro. Two sisters, Eva (Ivana Baquero) and Carolina (Alejandra Onieva), are as different as they are inseparable; and a handsome officer, Nicolás Sala (Jon Kortajarena), a man that fate has put in the wrong place, team together to solve a mystery – the murder of a passenger whose name does not appear in the passenger list and who no one remembers.

Also stars: Jose Sacristán and Eloy Azorín

Hulu's The Act

The Act (US: Hulu; UK: StarzPlay)

Premiere date: Friday, June 14

The Act is an anthology series telling a new true-crime story each season. The first season follows Gypsy Blanchard, a girl trying to escape the toxic relationship she has with her overprotective mother. Her quest for independence opens a Pandora’s box of secrets, one that ultimately leads to murder.

Stars: Patricia Arquette, Joey King, Chloë Sevigny and AnnaSophia Robb.

Tales of the City
Airdates

When’s that show you mentioned starting, TMINE? Including The Bad Seed, Tales of the City, and Overspel

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

A little bit of catch-up, since TMINE was on a break last Friday, and a little bit earlier than usual since it’s Good Friday tomorrow, but here’s WTSYMST. That’s not catchy, is it?

Acquisitions

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

Premiere dates

Dean O’Gorman and Matt Minto in TVNZ1 (New Zealand)’s The Bad Seed

The Bad Seed (New Zealand: TVNZ1; UK: Alibi)
Premiere date: Tuesday, May 14, 9pm

Based on a series of books by award-winning New Zealand author, Charlotte Grimshaw, The Bad Seed tells the story of two brothers from the same dysfunctional family who, having escaped the desperate days of their early childhood, find their newly ordered lives falling apart when one becomes a suspect in a murder.

I was planning to review The Bad Seed today, since the first episode was on Sunday. However, I wasn’t paying attention to the schedules and it turns out that it’s been airing nightly this week, with the final episode set to air tonight. So instead, I’ll try to boxset the whole series at some point in the next week or so – assuming it’s any cop, of course.

Vara (The Netherlands)'s Overspel (The Adulterer)
Vara (The Netherlands)’s Overspel (The Adulterer)

Overspel (The Adulterer) (The Netherlands: VARA; UK: Channel 4/All4)
Premiere date: Sunday, April 28, 11pm

When Iris and Willem cross paths, sparks fly and they cannot deny the intense chemistry between them… little do they know that their lives will soon become more entangled than they could possibly imagine.

Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City (Netflix)
Premiere date: Friday, June 7

Fourth instalment of the series based on Armistead Maupin’s books, which started on Channel 4 in the UK in 1993 and was later revived by Showtime in the US in 1998 and 2001, and is now being revived again by Netflix.

Mary Ann (Laura Linney) returns to present-day San Francisco and is reunited with her daughter Shawna (Ellen Page) and ex-husband Brian (Paul Gross), twenty years after leaving them behind to pursue her career. Fleeing the midlife crisis that her picture-perfect Connecticut life created, Mary Ann is quickly drawn back into the orbit of Anna Madrigal (Olympia Dukakis), her chosen family and a new generation of queer young residents living at 28 Barbary Lane.
