4 TV Shows to Keep an Eye on This Autumn

A take it or leave it guide to four shows breaking big this autumn.

Starts in October, Channel 5

Starts this month, Sky Atlantic

Starts this month, Sky Atlantic

 

4 The Irish one with the guy from Bridesmaids in it: Moone Boy

Though it looked like he might go all “I’m pals with Judd Apatow now” on us, actor Chris O’Dowd is returning to his roots for this comedy, which he stars in and has co-written, about an 11-year-old and his imaginary friend in Eighties Ireland (O’Dowd plays the friend, not the 11-year-old).

On now, Sky1
