The 10 Best New TV Shows This Fall

Maniac (Netflix, September 21)

Maniac is a miniseries starring Emma Stone and Jonah Hill, based on the Norwegian series of the same name. 10 volunteers take part in a pharmaceutical trial that promises to solve all of their life’s problems without any side effects… I suspect things do not go that smoothly though.

Manifest (NBC, September 24)

After Montego Air Flight 828 struggles through some turbulence, they manage to make a safe landing at the airport. Except, to everyone outside of their flight, five long years have passed; their family and friends losing all hope that they were alive. I love a good mystery, and if Manifest lives up to its unofficial title of “the new Lost” then there’ll surely be lots of twists and turns.

The Little Drummer Girl (AMC, November 19)

In this miniseries, Alexander Skarsgård plays an Israeli intelligence agent ordered to recruit a young actress (Florence Pugh) to help catch a terrorist. She takes on the role of a double agent, and begins questioning where her loyalties actually lie.

The Good Cop (Netflix, September 21)

Disgraced former NYPD (Tony Danza) and his obsessively honest detective son (Josh Groban) come together in this buddy cop series. The dramedy gives off some Brooklyn Nine-Nine vibes, in which case I’m very interested.

You (Lifetime, September 9)

In this twisted 21st century love story, Joe (Penn Badgley) becomes obsessed with a beautiful writer. And, thanks to the internet, he is able to find out everything about her and use it to get closer. Like most psychopaths, he can be incredibly charming, but also loses his damn mind when anything or anyone gets in the way of being with her. The unsettling series actually premiered last week, so you can binge watch a couple of creepy episodes in a row.

Escape at Dannemora (Showtime, November 18)

Based on real events, the miniseries follows two men sentenced to life in prison and how one love-stricken female employee helps them escape. I’m not sure if any escape series will ever trump Prison Break, but I can’t wait to watch it try.

Watch the trailer here.

Kidding (Showtime, September 9)

Another new dramedy features Jim Carrey as Mr. Pickles, a Mister Rogers-esque kids’ television host. However, his sweet persona begins to crumble when family drama erupts around him.

Watch the trailer here.

Jack Ryan (Amazon Prime, August 31)

From Tom Clancy’s “Ryanverse”, Jack Ryan (John Krasinski) is an up-and-coming CIA analyst who’s thrust into the field when he uncovers “the next Osama Bin Laden”. The entire action-filled season is already on Prime, so go ahead and binge your hearts out.

Watch the trailer here.

The First (Hulu, September 14)

In the not-so-distant future, veteran astronaut Tom Hagerty (Sean Penn) embarks on the first manned trip to Mars. The series shows the struggles not only scientifically, but also the sacrifices that must be made in his personal life to become the first man on Mars.
