A selection of British TV news from the past week:
New drama from the BBC: McMafia trailer.
The Detectorists season 3 is starting soon! (Well, in the UK. When will we get it stateside? SOON, I hope!)
BBC2’s Blue Planet II has made a ratings splash.
In the works at Hulu: a TV remake of Four Weddings and a Funeral.
Netflix and the BBC are rocking their partnership: they have six new series in co-production. (Related: The BBC chief says British content is “under serious threat” as Netflix and Amazon ramp up their own TV productions.)
Peep Show writers Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong have set up their own production company.
Call the Midwife has just wrapped on filming season #7.
This is not British TV related, really, but I enjoyed it anyway: “Jumping the Shark (or how to learn how to stop watching a show).”
Have a great week watching (British) TV!
