Start blocking out time on your viewing calendar for April, because international TV streaming service MHz Choice has a lineup jam-packed with the US and Canadian premieres of several critically-acclaimed series in April.

Headlining the MHz Choice April slate is Man in Room 301, a dark Finnish thriller starring Jussi Vatanen (Lapland Odyssey trilogy). The six-part limited series centers on the Kurtti family, whose lives are torn apart by the death of their toddler son, and their subsequent search for the killer. Man in Room 301 premieres Tuesday, April 27.

Debuting the week before, on Tuesday, April 20, is the multi-layered German drama The Typist, which had its world premiere as one of ten series selected to compete at the inaugural Canneseries Festival in 2018. The five-part limited series stars Iris Berben (Eddie the Eagle) as Freya, a police secretary who has spent her life transcribing gruesome accounts of murder. She herself is haunted by the disappearance of her own daughter eleven years earlier, so when her old friend, Henry (Peter Kurth, Babylon Berlin), takes over the Berlin Police Department, she resolves to finally get to the bottom of her daughter’s disappearance and finds out more than she bargained for.

On April 6, French fantasy-thriller series Wonderland (Romance) premieres on this side of the Atlantic. It stars Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace, Oblivion) as Alice, a mysterious woman in 1960s Biarritz whose secrets cloud her past and present. Pierre Deladonchamps (Spiral, Nicolas Le Floch) plays Jérémy, a idealistic young man in contemporary Paris who falls in love with Alice. The more Jérémy learns about Alice, the more surprising twists the story takes.

Additional titles making their stateside and north-of-the-border debuts in April are Seasons 3, 4, and 5 of character-driven Scottish drama Bannan, the fifth and final season of French crime drama Mafiosa, and French travelogue series Le Petit Tour.
