Inspired by The Official British TV Show Thread, and the complaints inside, I figured I would try to start a new TV show thread.

The purpose of the thread is to post any new show about to premiere or that has just premiered preferably with a trailer and a brief description. Malcontent has a great format in the British thread and I would like to try to keep it along those lines. Please use the official show threads for any in-depth discussion about the actual shows.

It has been a great way to discover new TV shows people might not be aware of especially since the focus isn't on local shows only.

Together with his new partner Claire McKenzie (Emma Hamilton), Gary uncovers a criminal underbelly that will threaten his life, endanger his young family and cause him to question everything he believes in.

'Deep Water' - Australia

Mini-Series

The first episode is available via magic.


Taken from here

Detectives Tori Lustigman and Nick Manning are assigned a brutal murder case in Bondi, where they begin to uncover mounting evidence to suggest the killing is connected to a spate of unexplained deaths, "suicides" and disappearances throughout the 80s and 90s. Haunted by the disappearance of her teenage brother, Tori's fascination with the case soon turns to fixation. When more ritualistic murders occur with the same bizarre signature, Tori and Nick will need to put their relationships, their careers and their lives on the line to finally reveal the truth.

'Zapped!'

Brian Weaver, an online data marketing assistant (even he doesn't know what that is) finds himself abruptly transported to a parallel world. Fortunately, there's a pub. There he meets the owner, Herman (a former warrior) plus a handful of regulars: Barbara (a hopeless soothsayer), Steg (an armchair revolutionary) and Howell (a brain-fried Wizard). Brian is desperate to get home, and his new acquaintances are no help at all. Instead he finds himself being sucked into a world he doesn't understand, full of psychopathic Fairies, Shell Men, seductive Demi-Fins, vicious Throcks and the frighteningly unpredictable side-effects of Howell's magical powers. It's even worse than being an online data marketing assistant.
The first episode is available via magic.

I couldn't find a trailer for this show. It's on the 'Dave' channel.

'The Wrong Girl'

Great job? Tick. Great best friend? Tick. Great flatmate? Tick. So what could possibly go wrong? Lily, the producer of a cooking segment on a morning television show called The Breakfast Bar, finds herself torn between two very different men.

A contemporary romantic drama, the show follows modern woman Lily as she chooses between two guys – one too good to be true and the other so wrong he just might be Mr. Right.

Celebrating the hiccups that life throws at us, we follow Lily as she deals with workplace challenges, good dates, bad dates, needy parents, friendships and the "what the hell am I even doing here?" moments.
The first 2 episodes are available via magic.

'The Secret Daughter'

Jessica Mauboy portrays a part-time country pub singer whose chance meeting with a wealthy city hotelier triggers a series of events that will change her life forever. A feel-good drama which explores the very different Australian worlds of 'the haves' and 'the have nots', The Secret Daughter is full of heart, humour, romance and plenty of music. They say you can't choose your family, but what happens when a family chooses you?

Thanks for the heads up about the wonderful Australian Tv. It's not like this thread is so very busy that we need to wade through all he posts about Australian TV to find those about UK TV.

'Tomorrow When the War Began'

Based on the era-defining novels by John Marsden, Tomorrow When the War Began – the Series, tells the story of a group of teenage friends who, upon their return from a remote camping trip find themselves thrust into the middle of a war no one saw coming.

But how do you keep fighting when all you have has been taken from you?

'The Brokenwood Mysteries'

The Brokenwood Mysteries comprises four two-hour murder mystery stories set in a seemingly quiet country town where the town's newest resident, Detective Inspector Mike Shepherd, finds that murder lurks in even the most homely location.
It's a New Zealand crime/mystery drama. It's very good.

I mentioned it in the other thread a year ago. I thought it was worth noting again in this new thread.

It's in it's second season.

As I commented in the other thread, it started out great and then devolved into discussions and arguments rather than the introduction of new shows. I wanted to start a new thread and am very pleased that someone did. I would just like to toss out a suggestion if I may - What about renaming this "The Official New Non-US TV Show Thread" (or something similar)?.

There are always new threads created for new and upcoming shows in the US and I would love to see this one dedicated to "others" - and for everyone to know it.

Thoughts?
