Looking for a new television show to watch in August 2018? Here's our four top UK TV picks.


Reverie (Syfy) Series begins on Thursday 2 August

Originally from ABC in America, Syfy has picked up this series which comes from Extant creator Mickey Fisher. Reviews have been mixed, but we personally love the plot.

A former hostage negotiator is brought in to save ordinary civilians, who are stuck in a virtual reality programme (Reverie) - where the impossible, becomes possible.

It lets users live out their wildest dreams - but maybe a bit too much, as they don't want to come back out! Their bodies are trapped. Can they be saved?

Drama starring Sarah Shahi, Dennis Haysbert, Sendhil Ramamurthy

True Love or True Lies? (MTV) Series begins on Monday 6 August

Are you struggling for things to do after the conclusion of Love Island? Look no further, as MTV are about to drop a fresh reality series.

Narrated by Danny Dyer and hosted by Maya Jama - six couples arrive at an Italian mansion, thinking they're competing on a show called The Perfect Couple. Obviously they are not.

Hidden with the real couples are fakes, who are aiming to mislead the others. The real couple's need to find the liars, by voting them out - if they get it right, then the prize pot will grow by £10k each time (it starts at £50,000)

Reality starring Danny Dyer, Maya Jama


Ten Days in the Valley (Alibi) - Series begins on Monday 13 August

Launched on ABC in America last year, the UK will finally get to see the series thanks to Alibi.

Jane is an overworked producer and single mother, who is separating from her husband. Their world is about to crash down, after her daughter (Lake) goes missing.

There are many suspects and everyone has a secret. Trust nobody.

Drama starring Kyra Sedgwick, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kick Gurry

9-1-1 (Sky Witness) Series begins on Wednesday 15 August

Already renewed for a second series, 9-1-1 appeared on American channel Fox in January.

It explores the real-life experiences of police, paramedics and firefighters. We watch as they respond to the most frightening, shocking and heart-stopping situations.

They must try to save those most vulnerable, whilst trying to solve their own problems.

Drama starring Angela Bassett, Peter Krause, Connie Britton
