A holiday abroad is supposed to be full of fun and adventure. For the travelers in Gap Year, it’s a little of both and a whole lot more.
Oh, how fabulous! More new series and fan favorite programs from Britain, Ireland, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand are premiering exclusively on Acorn TV this year!
There’s a premiere for practically everyone this month, from adaptations of bestselling novels and a hit Broadway play, to new dramas and the return of some of the best British telly around.
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!
