This week’s premiere dates are mostly for streaming services’ original programmes, such as Netflix’s Onisciente (Omniscient) and Luna Nera (Black Moon) and Apple TV+’s Amazing Stories and Defending Jacob.
But we’ve also got dates for The Righteous Gemstones and The L Word: Generation Q, all of which will be revealed after the jump.
The only acquisition this week was Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s Run, which is going to air on HBO in the US and Sky Comedy… some time. It’s not even clear when it’s going to air in the US.
We also know that HBO’s Mrs Fletcher is going to air on Sky Comedy, too, rather than Sky Atlantic as originally planned. That’ll be coming in February but I can’t offer anything more precise than that yet.
Oops, I missed it
