If the name of Crackle’s new scripted series rings a bell, it should. It’s based loosely on the hugely popular film, Snatch, and like the feature is a comedic thrill of a crime caper.
By my count, 215 new programs and program seasons from the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada premiered stateside in 2016. Of them, here are my picks for the best 20 that were brand-spanking-new to the US.
Before and after you rock the vote one week from today, check out all the new Brit and Aussie TV shows that will be screening in the US, including several can’t-miss dramas.
Twenty British, Irish, Australian, and Canadian series premiere nationally in the US in May, while In the Club debuts on, and Scott & Bailey and Shetland return to, public TV stations.
Hulu scored the exclusive US SVoD rights to the awesome, award-nominated drama-comedy, My Mad fat Diary, and is streaming the complete series as of today.
No, this is not an April Fool’s joke. A whopping twenty-one series premiere in or return to the US this month, including some of the most highly-anticipated shows this year.
For comedy gold, look no further than to Detectorists, the BAFTA Award-winning series that returns next month to the States, nationally and locally, with its second series.
“In like a lion, out like a lamb?” Not for British TV in the US, because this month is chock-full of must-watch premieres of new and returning shows, plus lots of Irish programs, too!
