International TV streaming service MHz Choice announced today its lineup for December 2021. Check it out!
Three Euro TV programs — from Italy, Sweden, and Switzerland — make their US and Canadian premieres on MHz Choice in December, along with the new season debuts of fan-favorite shows, including the long-awaited, eagerly-anticipated return of Beck, The Sandhamn Murders, and Murders at Barlume. The complete schedule is below.
The Days the Flowers Bloom (De dagar som blommorna blommar) (Sweden)
This acclaimed three-part drama tells the powerful, interwoven story of three neighboring families from the 1970s to the 1990s. The happy facade each family presents to the outside world is punctured by sudden loss or a public revealing of a quieter sorrow.
Written by Jonas Gardell and directed by Simon Kaijser — the team behind the award-winning Don’t Ever Wipe Away Tears Without Gloves — the series features top-notch performances by Ramsus Luthander (Spring Tide), Ulf Friberg (Gåsmamman), and Anja Lundqvist (Alex), whose characters arrive at the moments that make the biggest imprints on their lives.
Arsène Lupin: 813 (Arsène Lupin: Joue et Perd) (France)
In this 1980 adaptation of Maurice Leblanc‘s classic novel 813, Jean-Claude Brialy (Les innocents) stars as gentleman burglar Arsène Lupin, who is caught in a web of intrigue after being framed for murder.
Changing Rooms: Season 2 (Vestiaires) (France)
Laughter and disability go hand-in-hand, and nothing is off the table, in this offbeat, short-form comedy series set in the locker room of a differently-abled swim team. Check out the first episode of Season 2 below.
The Promised Life: Season 2 (La vita promessa) (Italy)
Set in the late 1930s, the new season of this epic Italian period drama continues the story of Carmela (Luisa Ranieri, The Homicide Squad, Luisa Spagnoli), a mother who moves her family from Sicily to New York in search of a better life. (Video is from the 1920s-set Season 1, which began streaming on MHz Choice today.)
