The Rookie S1 

After a life-altering incident, Josh Nolan joins the LAPD, but it’s not easy when you’re the oldest rookie in the group. Josh must keep up with the young cops around him and stay one step ahead of the criminals. Can he prove himself and change his life, or will his mid-life crisis get people killed? Nathan Fillion (Castle) brings charm and humour to this crime drama that’s getting 93% audience ratings on movie website Rotten Tomatoes.

Mondays on M-Net (101) at 20:00

Kidding S1

Jim Carrey stars in this brand-new poignant, Golden-Globe nominated dramedy about Jeff Pickles, a children’s TV icon who has brought joy to the lives of an entire generation of Americans. The trouble is, Jeff’s own life is imploding, and he doesn’t have a solution to solve his own unhappiness or save his sanity. The phenomenal cast also stars Frank Langella, Catherine Keener and Judy Greer. The show is created by Weeds producer Dave Holstein and exec produced by Michel Gondry, and Showtime calls it “a slow leak of sanity as hilarious as it is heart-breaking.”
