Wild Bill is just one of the TV crime dramas to watch this week

We’re into a new week. In fact, we’re into the first full week of a new month. That means some new TV crime dramas are heading out way.

While some of the releases on streaming services are happening toward the end of the month, there are some excellent shows to check out this week. We also have a new release on broadcast now that Bulletproof Season 2 has come to an end.

Here are the five TV crime dramas to watch this week.

Wild Bill

Starting with a streaming service, Wild Bill is released on BritBox this week. The first episode is available, with other episodes released on a weekly basis on Tuesdays.

Rob Lowe stars as a U.S. cop who moves to the UK with his daughter. As he shakes things up at his new precinct, his whole life ends up overturned. It’s going to be fun to see cultures collide.

The first episode of Wild Bill is available on Tuesday, Aug. 4 on BritBox.
