New to TVNZ+: March 30-April 5

The only new original drama coming to TVNZ+ in the first week of April is the widely panned Alice & Jack (April 3).

The leads are excellent, with Andrea Riseborough and Domhnall Gleeson playing a couple “bound by a connection so powerful it seems nothing can break it” — until a past trauma forces them to lead separate but intersecting lives that test their bond.

“Andrea Riseborough and Domhnall Gleeson mesmerise in this six-part romance that spans periods of togetherness, separation and reunion over several years,” said The Wall Street Journal while acknowledging as their characters “don’t meet expectations”.

But The Telegraph thought them “narcissistic and sappy” in a “joyless slog [that’s] preposterous and deathly at the same time.”

As a curtain-raiser to the overdue launch of S6, TVNZ+ is bingeing S1-5 of The Rookie from April 2.

Also new are the latest seasons of Star Trek: Discovery (April 4), Canadian air ambulance drama Skymed (April 2), celebrity reality show The Family Stallone (April 1) and Love Island USA (April 4).
