Some of the best international TV shows on the planet premiered in the US and UK last year, and the ones I thought were fabulous are numerous.
It’s a big week in Euro TV premieres for stateside fans, including a prequel series of sorts to a mystery drama from Sweden, the second season of a hit crime drama from Italy, and a new period drama from Spain.
Gomorrah, “Italy’s Answer to Breaking Bad” and that country’s most popular television series ever, is headed across the Atlantic to the United States, specifically to SundanceTV.
The international Camerimage Festival adds a TV component for the first time ever at this year’s competition, and four Euro TV pilots are up for the coveted Golden Frog.
Chouette! It’s a muti-cultural crime drama weekend here in the US. And across the pond, the Italians are coming, the Italians are coming!
