8 sizzling international series coming to DStv in July


These brand-new series and returning favourites will keep you company through the darkest days of winter.

Hatton Garden S1

A gang of elderly ex-cons carry out London’s most audacious diamond heist in this factual mini-series based on a true story and starring Timothy Spall (Mr Turner). Follow them as they put their plan into action and try to evade the cops.

Hatton Garden S1 starts Wednesday 24 July on ITV CHOICE (123) at 20:00

The Good Fight S3

IndieWire has praised the third season as “a quiet revolt hiding behind the mask of a legal drama”. Tune in for stabs at Donald Trump and of course, the electric Christine Baranski steering the ship as attorney Diane Lockhart.

Starts Monday 22 July on M-Net (101) at 21:00. Binge-watch seasons 1-2 on Showmax before the new season starts. 

City on a Hill S1

Boston in the 90s is a lawless city. A district attorney from the Big Apple steps in and forms an unlikely alliance with a rogue FBI veteran (Kevin Bacon). Can this new broom sweep clean?

Starts Tuesday 23 July on M-Net (101) at 22:00

Ambitions

They used to be best friends in college, but Stephanie Lancaster and Amara Hughes are now adversaries in their personal and professional lives as senior attorneys and the matriarchs of Atlanta’s most powerful families.

Starts Monday 22 July on 1Magic (103) at 20:30

Legion S3

After a dark turn in the season two finale, this sci-fi series about David, the estranged son of X-Men’s Charles Xavier, takes on a fresh narrative when a time-travelling mutant arrives to save David’s life.

Starts Tuesday 23 July on FOX (125) at 22:00

The Loudest Voice

M-Net’s newest political drama is based on the true story of the rise of Fox News media mogul and political influencer Roger Ailes, and his ultimate fall from grace after years of sexually harassing his female co-workers finally caught up with him. The seven-part mini-series stars Russell Crowe, (who is powerful and totally unrecognisable as Ailes), Sienna Miller, Seth McFarlane and Naomi Watts.

Watch The Loudest Voice on Wednesdays on M-Net (101) at 22:00. The latest episodes are also available on DStv Now.

Warrior S1

This brand-new, action-packed period drama is based on the writings of the legendary Bruce Lee. It’s set in San Francisco in 1878, and centres on Chinese immigrant and martial arts protégée Ah Sahm, who is drawn into the vicious underworld of Chinatown’s brutal gangs. The series was filmed in Cape Town, and boasts a great cast, gorgeous costumes, smouldering sexiness, and all the thrilling, full-impact fight scenes you’d expect from the team that brought us Banshee.

Watch Warrior S1 on Thursdays on M-Net (101) at 22:10. Available on Catch Up and online at DStv Now or binge it on Showmax.

Superstore S4

Season three ended with both Dina and Amy expecting, and don’t forget that Amy and Jonah got caught on camera in a decidedly unprofessional position. As always, Superstore’s comedic brilliance lies in its kooky cast of characters, and this season promises all sorts of possible twists, including the arrival of new cast member Eden Sher from The Middle.

Superstore S4 starts Thursday 11 July on 1Magic (103) at 19:00. Haven’t seen it before? Binge S1-3 on Showmax before it starts.
