Silicon Valley.

From HBO and the offbeat mind of Mike Judge ('Office Space,' 'Beavis & Butthead') comes this comedy series that delves into the outrageous world of tech start-ups and the socially awkward underdogs trying to navigate its lucrative potential.

Master of none.

Dev is a 30-year-old actor in New York who has trouble deciding what he wants to eat, much less the pathway for the rest of his life. Ambitious, funny, cinematic, and personal, Dev's story takes him through subjects as diverse as the plight of the elderly, the immigrant experience, and how to find the most delicious pasta for dinner.

Shameless.

William H. Macy stars in this US remake. Frank Gallagher is a proud, working-class patriarch to a motley brood of six smart, spirited and independent kids who, without him, would be…better off! In Frank's booze-addled view, parenting just eats into his hard-earned bar-crawling and carousing time around Chicago – so he leaves it to eldest daughter Fiona (Emmy Rossum) to hold down the fort.

Mrs. Brown's boys.

Brendan O'Carroll stars as the foul-mouthed Irish matriarch Agnes Brown, whose favourite pastime is meddling in the lives of her six children

The Detectorists.

Andy and Lance are two decidedly low-key, underemployed metal detector enthusiasts. The motley pair spend their weekends and abundant downtime scouring the British countryside for buried Roman coins and Saxon treasure. Written and directed by Mackenzie Crook (The wonderful "Gareth" in the UK version of "The Office") and co-starring Toby Jones.
