New to TVNZ OnDemand in March

Today TVNZ OnDemand premieres the full season of acclaimed Scottish murder mystery Deadwater Fell.

Reads the blurb: “When a seemingly perfect and happy family is murdered by someone they knew and trusted, cracks appear on the surface of a supposedly idyllic community.”

David Tennant, Cush Jumbo (The Good Fight) and Matthew McNulty (Versailles, The Terror) star in the four-part thriller from veteran TV scribe Daisy Coulam (Grantchester, Death in Paradise, EastEnders).

The Guardian dubbed it “the new Broadchurch … but more irresistible” while Radio Times thought it “a devastating look at how tragedy rocks a community, with elements of thrilling crime drama to boot”.

Also new to TVNZ OnDemand this month is Motherland: Fort Salem (weekly from March 19).

Set in an alternate America, where the traditional roles of gender and power are flipped, it follows three young witches with basic training in “combat magic” as they prepare to defend the US against terrorists.

Season two of Roswell, New Mexico will stream weekly from March 19. Developments include Liz (Jeanine Mason) mourning her lost love by seeking comfort in science, both earthly and extra-terrestrial, and Rosa turning to Kyle (Michael Trevino) to help find her place in the unfamiliar territory of 2019.

The full second season of My Brilliant Friend will go online on March 10 and another foreign language drama, Bang, will bow on March 23. Said The Guardian of this 2017 production:

The huge international success of Scandi noir dramas such as The Killing and The Bridge has given television makers the confidence to bring a new crossover series to the world’s screens – a bilingual Welsh-English crime drama. Set in and around the steel-town landscape of Port Talbot in south Wales, Bang is being hailed as the first major bilingual series to be aired by the Welsh language broadcaster S4C.

Also new will be box sets of Scrubs and King of the Hill (from March 30) while already streaming are the documentaries McLaren, Change of Heart, Gaston Melies and His Wandering Star Film Company, and The Departure.

Local digital newcomers include From the Vault: Pasifika, S2 of Maori bilingual drama Ahikaroa (from March 5) and, from producers/directors Ally Xue and JJ Fong (Flat3Friday Night Bites), MEME (from March 27), a dark teen comedy about a social media addict who discovers it can be a petri dish for all things nasty.
