Osmosis
Airdates

When’s that show you mentioned starting, TMINE? Including Hanna, Good Omens and Osmosis

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

Not a huge number of acquisitions of premiere dates this week, but we have a few, at least.

Acquisitions

  • Universal has acquired CityTV (Canada)’s The Murders, in which a rookie detective’s gun gets fatally mislaid. That doesn’t air in Canada until March 25, and will air in the UK “mid 2019”

Premiere dates

Hanna

Hanna (Amazon)
Premiere date: Friday, March 29

Slightly pointless remake of the movie of the same name about a teenage girl trained to kill by her dad and hunted by the authorities.

Episode reviews: 1

Osmosis

Osmosis (Netflix)
Premiere date: Friday, March 29

French Netflix original. The 8-episode series is set in Paris in the near-future where apps use your personal memory and all the data they’ve gathered over your lifetime to find your perfect match. But what happens if your memories – like all data – can be manipulated?

Paris, in the near future. Technology has conquered the last frontier: decoding true love. Digging deep into its user’s brain data, the new dating app “OSMOSIS” can find a perfect match with 100% accuracy, turning the concept of absolute soulmate into a reality. But is there a price to pay when letting an algorithm decide who you will love, forever and ever? When in exchange for this undying, ageless love, technology can access the innermost recesses of your mind — and the best kept secrets of your heart…

No trailer yet, I’m afraid.

Good Omens
David Tennant and Michael Sheen in BBC Two/Amazon’s Good Omens

Good Omens (Amazon/BBC Two)
Premiere date: Friday, May 31 (Amazon – will air on BBC Two afterwards)

Adaptation of the Terry Pratchett/Neil Gaiman book of the same name in which an angel (Michael Sheen) and a demon (David Tennant) team up to prevent the apocalypse.
