Three intriguing new shows
This winter, MAX is all about police investigations and solving crimes! In addition to several expected comebacks, the channel introduces Balthazar (seasons 1 and 2) starting January 7th. A resounding success on the renowned French network TF1, the show stars actor Tomer Sisley (Largo Winch, Messiah) in the lead role of a forensic doctor that teams up with a detective to solve crimes, including the unsolved murder of his own wife, 12 years prior. This premiere will air Thursdays at 8 pm.
January 6th also marks the arrival of Dent pour dent (Bite Club), an Australian series featuring actor Dominic Monaghan of Lost and Lord of the Rings fame. MAX subscribers are invited to tune in Wednesdays at 8 pm to follow the adventures of two shark-attack survivors and detectives that team up to solve several mysterious murder cases.
To top this series, a 3rd exclusive will be added to MAX’s programming starting March 3rd! Viewers tuning in Wednesdays at 8 pm can watch the french version of A Confession. Featuring Martin Freeman (Sherlock, the Hobbit trilogy) and Imelda Staunton (the Harry Potter saga), the miniseries was a resounding hit in the UK. Inspired by a true story, it’s a dramatic tale that follows a high-risk, clock-ticking police investigation meant to solve the disappearance of a young woman.
