February New Foreign TV Premieres From Belgium, Germany and Wales on MHz Choice

MHz Choice
Announces a Unique February lineup
with the self-shot mini-drama Lifelines from Wales,
and a pair of intense thrillers: Algiers Confidential fromGermany and
Unseen from Belgium.

MHz Choice announces a unique February lineup with a pair of intense thrillers, Algiers Confidential (Germany) and Unseen (Belgium), both from Paris-based distributor About Premium Content, and the self-shot Welsh mini-drama Lifelines from Videoplugger.

MHz Choice, the premier streamer of international series for U.S. and Canadian audiences, will premiere Lifelines, a three-part series that was both filmed and set within the first two months of the COVID-19 pandemic in Wales. Actors filmed themselves at home with phones and laptops almost in real-time as we see a more intimate series of stories unfold within the larger elephant-in-the-room drama of COVID-19 lockdown. Lifelines captures these fictional characters in a moment in time when confinement was new and connecting with others was somber and raw.

In the four-part limited series Algiers Confidential, German police investigator Ralf Eley (Ken Duken) and Algerian prosecutor Amel Samraoui (Hania Amar) land on opposite sides of an investigation into a recent kidnapping. The series, helmed by Spiral director Frederic Jardin, races through a minefield of geopolitics and surprising turns, which severely tests Ralf and Amel’s loyalties to each other and to their countries.

In a small Belgian village with a large telecom relay tower looming overhead, Unseen chronicles what happens when dead birds begin falling from the sky and the residents slowly become invisible. The intensity progresses, pitting the seen and unseen against one another.

Also premiering in February are returning series Tandem (LS Distribution), where murder investigations continue in Montpellier by an ex-husband and wife duo, the next iteration of Arsène Lupin with the 1995 series The New AdventuresofArsène Lupin (INA), and Swiss relationship drama Double Life (Film & Picture TV Distribution).
