A Happy 2017 to you! Without further ado, let’s get to the shows that will help us ring in the new year and give us hours of fabulous British, Aussie, Kiwi, Canadian, and Irish TV entertainment.
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.
You had to have known that this list was coming, right?
Autumn is here, and with the crispness of the air and fewer hours of daylight come a bevy of British TV premieres, including some of the most highly-anticipated program returns.
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.
“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!
Well, here’s a first for stateside Irish TV fans. And an addictive bit of craic it is, too. It’s Red Rock, the award-winning soap opera from the Emerald Isle.
Happy New Year! It’s the 1st of January, which means Sherlock: The Abominable Bride! And there’s much more British TV screening in the US during the rest of the month, too!
