When’s that show you mentioned starting, TMINE? Including Si no t’hagues conegut, Proven Innocent, No Good Nick and The Spanish Princess

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

Acquisitions

  • BBC Wales has acquired S4C’s Bang. That’ll air sometime in the summer. Could end up on BBC Four eventually.
  • My5 has picked up three HOT (Israel) shows: eight-part vampire comedy Juda, six-part gay adoption story Miguel, five-part family drama Mekimi and two seasons of crime drama Sirens. They’ll all be available in the spring.
  • Paramount UK has acquired Paramount US’s Yellowstone, with Kevin Costner and Kelly Reilly. No word at all on when that will start.

Premiere dates

Si no t'hagues conegut

Si no t’hagues conegut (If I Hadn’t Met You) (Spain: TV3; UK: Netflix)
Premiere date: Friday, March 15

A man who loses his family in a tragic accident discovers that he can travel to alternate universes, compelling him to find a way to save his family.

Proven Innocent (US: Fox; UK: Universal)
Premiere date: Monday, March 18, 9pm

Teenager falsely accused of murder ends up in prison where she trains to become a lawyer. Years later, she tries to help exonerate those equally falsely accused of crimes, while trying to get her revenge on the lawyer who got her in jail in the first place.

There’s a good cast, including Rachelle Lefevre, Russell Hornsby, Vincent Kartheiser, Laurie Holden and Kelsey Grammer, but the set-up and script are both ludicrous. Given Hornsby’s already been cast in a TV reboot of Bone Collector, the signs aren’t good for this, either.

Episode reviews: Initial

No Good Nick

No Good Nick (Netflix)
Premiere date: Monday, April 15

Netflix US original. Siena Agudong infiltrates a family intending to get revenge on them for unknowingly ruining her life. But as she gets to know the family, she finds compassion for them and struggles with whether to go through with her plan. Melissa Joan Hart plays the competitive ‘career mother’, while Sean Astin stars as the archetypical loveable, dorky ‘fun dad’.

The Spanish Princess

The Spanish Princess (US: Starz; UK: StarzPlay)
Premiere date: Sunday, May 5

Adaptation of Philippa Gregory’s novels The Constant Princess and The King’s Curse dealing with Catherine of Aragon, first as a teenage princess of Spain who was promised the English throne since she was a child, then as she arrives in grey, rain-lashed England to marry Prince Arthur. Unfortunately, he dies, but guess who’s waiting in the wings for her…

What (more) TV’s on at BAFTA in February? Including 35 Awr and more of Matthew Hall on writing

Every week or so, TMINE flags up what new TV events BAFTA is holding around the UK

Moved to its somewhat odd new regular slot of Tuesdays, here’s the latest update on what BAFTA is doing TV-wise around the UK. At the moment, BAFTA seems to be focused on its Welsh activities, mind. Just announced is an additional date and location for Matthew Hall to talk about writing (more details on the first announcement) – he’s now going to be at JP studio, Bangor University, on Wednesday, 20 February at 1.30pm. You can book tickets if you’re a member by emailing Vicki.

But there’s one new event, which is for an S4C drama that if I not overlooked (as The Killing Times is reviewing it), couldn’t quite find the time to watch.

Preview: Final episode of 35 Awr + Q&A (Carmarthen)

Sunday, 24 February 2019 – 7:30pm
Yr Egin, College Rd, Carmarthen SA31

Boom Cymru and S4C present the final installment of the eight-part series that is set in a jury room, featuring 10 people deliberating over a murder case.

Written by BAFTA Cymru nominee Fflur Dafydd (The Library Suicides) and starring Lisa Marged (Parch, Wolfblood) and Jâms Thomas (Gwaith Cartref).

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with cast and key creatives.

We have an allocation of members’ tickets. Email Vicki to reserve your place.

Follow the series every Sunday at 9pm on S4C and catch up with episodes you may have missed on the iPlayer.

Un Bore Merched (Keeping Faith)
BAFTA events

What (more) TV’s on at BAFTA in February? Including Matthew Hall on Writing

Every week or so, TMINE flags up what new TV events BAFTA is holding around the UK

Following on from last week’s February listing, there’s been a quiet announcement this week of an additional February BAFTA event – ie. I had to look on their web site just now to find it. It should be an interesting, too, given it’s a masterclass in TV writing by Matthew Hall – the bloke who wrote the books CBC (Canada)’s Coroner is based on, as well as S4C/BBC1’s Un Bore Mercher (Keeping Faith) and ITV’s Kavanagh QC.

Award Winners Masterclass: Matthew Hall on Writing

Wednesday, 6 February 2019 – 4:00pm
The Atrium, University of South Wales

A chance to hear from the BAFTA Cymru winning writer of Keeping Faith.

Matthew began life as a trial lawyer before landing his first TV writing commission aged 27 on ITV’s Kavanagh QC starring John Thaw. He has written over 50 hours of prime-time TV drama and five novels. He divides his time between his family home in Wales and London.

A TV series of Matthew’s novels called Coroner has just been made for CBC in Canada and is airing in the UK on Universal TV from January 2019 onward. The books are set partially in Wales, and have been adapted by Welsh-born writer, Morwyn Brebner.

The event is part of the University of South Wales’ TV Futures Day.

We have a limited allocation of tickets for members. Email Vicki to reserve your place.
