WASHINGTON, Oct. 12, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- MHz Choice, the leading streamer of international series for U.S. and Canadian audiences, will premiere five new series spanning a number of different countries and genres. The lighter fare is led by the multi-talented Nanna Kristín Magnúsdóttir, who wrote, produced, directed and stars in the Icelandic comedy-drama Happily Never After. Magnúsdóttir plays Karen, a couples' counselor who navigates the realization that her husband is cheating on her. Karen's unrealistic expectations about relationships and work lead to comedic twists that are ultimately unsustainable. MHz Choice's more intense November viewing is led by Marnow Murders, a German thriller that follows detectives Lona Mendt and Frank Elling on the trail of a bold serial killer. Over the course of its eight episodes, the detectives begin to uncover something much bigger than the crimes themselves.
Also in November is the debut of Changing Rooms (Vestiaires), an offbeat short-form comedy series from France set entirely in the locker room of a differently-abled swim team. The characters' appearances and abilities are not spared from comedic dialogue. Each of the 23 episodes are no longer than three delightful minutes.
Returning to MHz Choice in November are new seasons of fan favorites Murder In... from France and The New Nurses from Denmark. Each episode of Murder In... takes viewers to different scenic French villages and regions - with fresh murder mysteries to solve. Season 3 of The New Nurses begins in the spring of 1953 as the school faces intense competition from a rival school that, unlike Fredenslund, does not accept male students. The school's uncertain fate is the backdrop to drama amidst the nursing students who face choices in love, addiction and tragedies from their own past.
The highly-acclaimed Movie of the Week series also continues into November, featuring the best of French drama and mystery, along with the second season of the classic French Arsène Lupin series from 1973.
