It’s Tulsa Time for TVNZ

Next week’s TVNZ+ premiere of the Paramount+ Original Tulsa King leads the 2023 Showcase class of exclusive drama series.

The Sylvester Stallone gangster drama will stream from November 13, the same day it goes live on Paramount+.

Another P+ newcomer will be Rabbit Hole, an eight-part thriller that stars Kiefer Sutherland as a corporate spy who’s framed for murder. It’s due next year.

Peacock’s upcoming Bupkis is billed as a semi-autobiographical comedy starring Pete Davidson, Edie Falco and Joe Pesci.

“The half-hour show is described as ‘a heightened, fictionalised version of Pete Davidson’s real life,’” Variety reports.

Already on air in the US is So Help Me Todd, a CBS series about a fastidious lawyer (Marcia Gay Harden) who hires her black-sheep son (Skylar Astin) to investigate cases.

It earned mixed reviews as did another CBS series Fire Country, but the conventional drama about firefighting convicts has rated well enough to be greenlit for a full season.

The Guardian dubbed the latest Keeley Hawes vehicle for the BBC, Crossfire, “the world’s most stupidly corridor-based thriller … Gunmen are on the loose in a hotel, and people can’t stop phoning each other in hallways – even when they’re meant to be hiding silently. What a dull, daft waste of time.”

ITV’s upcoming The Reunion is described as a mystery thriller about three characters in two time zones, 25 years apart. Ioan Gruffudd stars.

Another ITV acquisition, Litvinenko, stars David Tennant as the former Russian Federal Security Services and KGB officer whose death from Polonium-210 poisoning in November 2006 triggered one of the most complex and dangerous investigations in the history of the Metropolitan Police.

And ITV bills provocative teen drama Tell Me Everything as “a celebration of adolescence, without shying away from the difficult subjects facing teens as they grow up in the 2020s”.

    On the subject of Ioan Gruffudd, does Harrow have a home in NZ?

  2. Not that I know of, Jon H. It appears to be distributed internationally by Disney. It’s on Hulu in the US and Disney+ in some Asian markets, so may turn up locally on the platform.
