A new 12-episode Netflix series called Criminal is set to debut on September 20th. The entire series takes place in an interrogation room, and three episodes apiece will be set in France, Spain, Germany, and the U.K. Hayley Atwell and David Tennant will guest star in the series, playing suspects on the opposite side of the police in the U.K.-set episodes.
Apple TV+ will finally debut in the fall, and we’re getting our first glimpse at one of their series, The Morning Show, starring Steve Carrell, Jennifer Aniston, and Reese Witherspoon. Unfortunately, the trailer doesn’t do much to sell it. I’m not sure this trailer for this show is gonna be the thing that convinces me I need another streaming network.
I don’t know if any of you were clamoring for more Bourne in your lives, but the USA Network is coming out with a series set in the Bourne universe called Treadstone. It stars Tracy Ifeachor, Emilia Schüle, and William Miller himself, Patrick Fugit. Here’s the trailer. It looks like a fairly generic action-spy series, and we already have Jack Ryan on Amazon for that:
Over on Showtime, Rachel Dratch is joining the next season of Shameless for a recurring role as Ian’s parole officer, who “uses her power over him and her other parolees to run an elaborate insurance scam.”
I bailed after the first season (James Franco issues, plus general boredom with the series), but if you’re interested, here’s the trailer for the third and final season of Deuce on HBO.
Jamie Dornan, Alec Baldwin, and Christian Slater will star in a new series called Dr. Death. The series is based on a podcast, which itself is based on a true story. From Variety:
“Dr. Death” is based on the true story of Dr. Christopher Duntsch (Dornan), a rising star in the Dallas medical community who was building a flourishing neurosurgery practice. But patients entered his operating room for complex but routine spinal surgeries were left permanently maimed or dead. As victims piled up, two fellow surgeons (Slater and Baldwin) and a young Assistant District Attorney set out to stop him.”
The Crown returns for its third season on November 17th on Netflix. Here’s your first gander at Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth II.
Finally, if you were thinking about nixing HBO after Game of Thrones and Big Little Lies, first of all: What’s wrong with you! Succession started last night (recap forthcoming)! Also, the slate of programming coming to the network over the next year is really hard to pass up.
