The Street (BBC America) Premieres: To Be Announced Airs: To Be Announced With all the counterterrorist agents and plane-crash survivors and kidnap victims on TV these days, you rarely see the sort of intimate stories that make up "The Street." Which is not to say that they're any less emotional or powerful; far from it, actually. Created by renowned writer Jimmy McGovern ("Cracker"), "The Street" tells six stories about the people who live on a Manchester street. A different house gets a spotlight every week for tales that can be tragic or funny or a mix of the two. The cast is a who's who of British actors, including Jim Broadbent, Timothy Spall and Jane Horrocks. Back to Fall TV Home Photo courtesy BBC America.
