Idris Elba

Don't know what to watch on TV? March into the third month of the year with these new shows!

The Village

Touchy-feely family dramas like This Is Us and A Million Little Things have been doing really well of late.

Jumping on the bandwagon is The Village, which chronicles the lives of the residents of an apartment building in New York – from a war veteran readjusting to civilian life to a single mum who finds out her teenage daughter is pregnant.

As they face life’s twists and turns, the residents turn to each other for support and encouragement. Starring Moran Atias, Michaela McManus and Frankie Faison.

The Village premieres March 13 at 10.30pm on Diva (Astro Ch 702).

Turn Up Charlie

Can you imagine the hunky Idris Elba playing a manny (male nanny)? The Luther actor plays a struggling deejay, Charlie, who recently reconnected with his famous best friend.

The good news is – he has a job for him. The bad news is – it’s not exactly what he has in mind. He’d like to hire Charlie to take care of his rambunctious daughter Gabby. The 30-minute comedy also stars Frankie Hervey, Piper Perabo and JJ Field.

Turn Up Charlie premieres March 15 on Netflix.

The Resident Season Two

Jenna Dewan joins Season Two of this hospital drama as a medical device representative trying to convince the doctors they need to purchase her newer, more advanced medical equipments.

The Resident offers viewers a look into the inner workings of a hospital, both the good and the bad. Also starring Matt Czuchry, Emily VanCamp and Manish Dayal.

The Resident Season Two premieres March 19 at 10pm on Foxlife (Astro Ch 711).

The OA: Part II

The OA centres on Prairie who believes a series of movements, when done by five people in unison, can open a portal to another dimension.

From the looks of The OA: Part II’s trailer, Prairie successfully transported to another dimension in this new season. She is now a wealthy Russian heiress living in San Francisco. She crosses paths with private investigator Karim, who is looking into the disappearance of a teen, in this new dimension.

The show also documents what’s happening to the five friends (they helped her travel to the new dimension) Prairie left behind in the first dimension. Get ready for another mind-bending season! Starring Brit Marling, Emory Cohen and Scott Wilson.

The OA: Part II premieres March 22 on Netflix.

My Amazing Boyfriend 2

The first season of this Chinese series saw an actress Jing Zhi and a mutant Ling Qiao fall in love. In Season Two, the two have broken up. Not long after, Jing Zhi discovers she is pregnant. Ling Qiao decides to move next door and keep an eye on Jing Zhi.

Meanwhile, a mysterious organisation, who learns about Jing Zhi’s half human, half mutant baby, approaches her. Starring Mike D’Angelo and Esther Yu.
