The Morning Show is a new Apple TV series starring Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Steve Carell and Mark Duplass.

Set in the wake of a major scandal at an early morning news channel, The Morning Show follows the unique challenges faced by the men and women we trust to tell the truth, and what happens when they prove themselves to be dishonest…

Aniston and Witherspoon on screen together; that’s a key reason I’m looking forward to this one. I’m a fan of Carell, Mark Duplass and Gugu Mbatha-Raw too, of course.

I was also listening quite closely when Crudup’s character said ‘Watching a beloved woman’s breakdown is timeless American entertainment.’ Now I know that I can’t wait to see how said woman will be fighting back.

The Morning Show brings to mind Gabrielle Union’s Being Mary Jane. I’m curious about the ways it’ll be different.

Nestor Carbonell, Karen Pittman, Bel Powley, Victoria Tate, Desean Terry, Shari Belafonte, Katherine Ko and Ian Gomez also star.

HUGE In France is a new Netflix comedy series created by and starring French comic Gad Elmaleh. Based in part on Elmaleh’s own experience, HUGE In France is about a successful French comic who hopes to make it in the United States.

Additional cast includes Matthew Del Negro, Erinn Hayes, Scott Keiji Takeda, Jerry Seinfeld…

The self-deprecating humour and observations of the differences between France / Europe and the United States are why I’m intrigued.

This should be even more interesting since right this minute I’m struggling to name a single comedian from a non-English speaking country that has had a successful Television series in America.

Scott Keiji Takeda, Jordan Ver Hoeve, Austin Fryberger, Keana Marie, Brittany Ross, Clark Moore and André Tardieu also star.

HUGE In France Release Dates: April 12th, 2019 (US)…

Idris Elba, Piper Perabo, JJ Feild and Frankie Hervey are the stars of new Netflix comedy series Turn Up Charlie.

Elba plays struggling DJ and eternal bachelor, Charlie. Charlie is given one last chance at success when he reluctantly becomes a manny to his famous best friend’s ‘problem-child’ daughter…

I’m interested because of how different this looks compared to the kind of TV shows I’ve come to expect from Elba. I can’t deny that the sunny summer days shown are an additional incentive.

Cameron King, Zak Holland, Daniel Brown, Ivana Basic, Janine Catterall, Nikkita Chadha and Sarah Sharman also star.

Turn Up Charlie Release Dates: March 15th, 2019 (US)…

AFTER LIFE (2019): New Trailer From Ricky Gervais, Kerry Godliman, Tom Basden, Ashley Jensen…

After Life is a new Netflix comedy starring Ricky Gervais, Kerry Godliman, Tom Basden, and Ashley Jensen.

It is the story of Tony, a widower whose wife’s sudden passing catapults him into a new way of being; saying and doing exactly as he pleases…

I’m a Gervais fan and The Office is good but my favourite Gervais series is definitely Extras. Derek is great too except for the fact that it made me cry very big tears which is contrary to what I expected would happen.

After Life definitely looks very promising and funny. I just hope that it won’t induce too many tears since staying hydrated can be hard work, you understand.

Paul Kaye, Tony Way, Mandeep Dhillon, Jo Hartley and Diane Morgan also star.

After Life Release Dates: March 8th, 2019 (UK)…

7 Days Out is a new documentary series offering a behind the scenes look at some of the most iconic cultural events in the fields of fashion, sports, food, gaming, and space. 

Events featured include a Chanel Haute Couture Fashion Show, NASA’s Cassini Mission and the Westminster Dog Show, to name just a three…

 I’m most interested in the fashion show episode, then the restaurant opening followed by the space mission. As someone who doesn’t enjoy organising events, I actually quite enjoy watching other people do it and do it well. I also love food and fashion as art.

7 Days Out Release Dates: December 21st (Netflix)…

Our Planet is the new Netflix documentary series from David Attenborough; the British ‘national treasure’ who brought us the beauty that was the Planet Earth series.

Our Planet promises to show us some of the world’s most precious natural habitats – starting with the glorious visuals in the following trailer…

As I watched the above I thought: ‘It’s not David Attenborough though.’ But then the end of the trailer happened and I was more than relieved.

Bring on all the knowledge and superior footage. I’m ready!

Our Planet Release Dates: April 5th, 2019 (Launching Globally on NETFLIX)…

Based on the novel by Shirley Jackson, The Haunting Of Hill House is a new Netflix series about five siblings who grew up in Americas most famous haunted house.

Created by Mike Flanagan; Carla Gugino, Michiel Huisman, Mckenna Grace and Timothy Hutton star…

I’d call this ‘nice and creepy’ for fans of scary movies. I’m not the biggest scary movie fan but I do appreciate this story’s rather compelling premise and how well made this trailer is.

I’m quite sure that I won’t have time for this new show but I’m sharing this trailer anyway because it’s a 9 minute teaser that gets more and more interesting, leading to at least one truly wow moment.

Created by Jeff Rake and Matthew Fernandez, Manifest is a new NBC drama / mystery series starring J.R. Ramirez, Josh Dallas, Jack Messina, Melissa Roxburgh to name just a few.

Following a turbulent, but routine flight, the passengers and crew of flight MA828 discover that the world has changed in a most unexpected way, and soon a deeper mystery unfolds…

Wasn’t that compelling?

Parveen Kaur, Luna Blaise, Alfredo Narciso and Julienne Hanzelka Kim also star.

Manifest series Premiere: September 24th, 2018 (US)
