Show of the week: Good Singers

Plenty of talent shows pit aspiring singers against one another as they perform their hearts (and lungs) out in pursuit of music stardom, but in Good Singers the trick is simply to look the part – rather than have any actual musical talent. This new series, which recently debuted on France’s TF1, is a local […]

Show of the week: Steel Monsters

Steel Monsters has a pretty focused target demo, Gerrit Kemming, MD at Quintus Media, tells TBI. “It’s a show that is focusing purely on what has proved to be interesting for an international factual male audience: steel, size, astonishment. Very straightforward,” he explains. This 4 x 60-minute show is from WeltN24 and definitely has those […]

Show of the week: Dark Woods

German drama has become increasingly sought after over the past couple of years and Dark Woods (aka Das Geheimnis Des Totenwaldes) is another worth taking a look at.
