The days are shorter and suddenly we are all feeling the chill in the air. For those of us who are heading to the couch with a warm drink and a cuddly blanket, we have some great new shows to help you get through the cold days and nights of November.
The Crown (Netflix)
Already must-see TV, The Crown takes us inside the two most exclusive addresses in London—Buckingham Palace and 10 Downing Street. This one takes the drama of a soap opera and throws in a heaping spoonful of history. The tagline "Two houses, two courts, one Crown" doesn't even begin to cover the drama set in the early 20th century.
Good Behavior (TNT)
Move over Lady Mary because Letty Dobesh is no lady! Michelle Dockery's next step after Downton Abby seems to be playing the polar opposite of her most famous role. Letty is a thief, con artist and, thanks to parole, an ex-con. Her mother is raising her 10-year-old son, her substance abuse counselor is suspect, and when she gets between a hitman and her target she somehow ends up in a web of drama. She may be no Lady Mary, but Letty certainly has enough feistiness and witty comebacks to make fans proud.
Search Party (TBS)
It's a 20-something murder mystery comedy! Yeah, you read that right. Alia Shawkat, from Arrested Development stars in this odd take on a missing person's story. Bored with her own life she becomes obsessed with solving the mysterious disappearance of someone she kind of, sort of, knew in college. It sounds just weird enough to be pretty interesting. TBS is releasing the whole season beginning the week of November 21 and as a marathon on Christmas and New Year's Day.
People of Earth (TBS)
The weird-odd-interesting continues with People of Earth, which is a science-fiction comedy developed by Conan O’Brien and Greg Daniels. In People, Ozzie Graham is skeptical journalist who meets an alien-abduction group while he’s investigating a car accident he was involved in. As he hears their stories he begins to think maybe he was also abducted. It is certainly not a storyline we have seen before on TV.
Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life (Netflix)
The revival of the popular cult series Gilmore Girls will premiere globally on November 25 on Netflix. The series, which originally ran from 2000-2007, has gathered most of the original cast back together (minus Melissa McCarthy as Sookie) for what is being promoted as a one-season reuniting of the dynamic mother-daughter duo Lorelei and Rory Gilmore. Also returning are Kelly Bishop as snooty mom/grandmom Emily, Scott Patterson as Lorelei's love Luke Danes, and Keiko Agena as Rory's BFF Lane Kim.
If Gilmore Girls has the nostalgia coming on strong, you can also watch the second season of Fuller House on Netflix.
