Here’s a treat to kick off your weekend: my interview with Douglas Henshall, the star of Scottish noir crime drama series Shetland.
Thirty programs from the UK, Canada, and Ireland, including 20 national premieres plus shows from Wales and Scotland, are coming to telly in July.
In a chat with Ann Cleeves, the award-winning author shared news about her work and the TV series Shetland and Vera, both based on her best-selling novels.
Clear part of your weekend calendar cos the new must-binge season of Shetland premieres on this side of the pond.
Showers, shmowers. May flowers can wait, because eighteen new and returning programs arrive nationally on US telly in April. A few more will screen locally.
The third series of Shetland, one of the best returning seasons amongst British TV programs in 2016, is set to premiere on KCET, the largest independent public TV station in the US.
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.
KCET premieres Shetland tonight, and Ann Cleeves, the bestselling British author who wrote the “Shetland” novels, chatted with me about this and her other series, Vera.
“Seems it never rains in Southern California,” sang Briton Albert Hammond in the early ’70s, but it will be pouring British programs here during KCET’s 2015/2016 TV season.
Hold on to your kilts. Celtic noir crime drama, Shetland, will return with star Douglas Henshall and guest stars including Ciaran Hinds, Archie Panjabi, and Anna Chancellor.
As another year of fabulous British TV draws to a close, we take a look back at some of our favorite shows. Here in Part 1 are the ones that debuted in the US during 2014.
