“The Morning Show”, opened a unique opportunity to explore through the lens of journalism the outbreak of Covid-19, as it happened, in a live broadcast
Apple TV+’s top drama, The Morning Show returns for a third season. If you just can’t get enough of these weekly new episodes, below are 6 more female-led series to watch in the meantime.
The Morning Show opened a unique opportunity to explore through the lens of journalism the outbreak of Covid-19, as it happened, in a live show. It’s a surreal, brilliant examination of how the daily news programs quickly became our lifeline to the outside world, feeding us information and support during that uncertain time. A similar thing had happened to Grey’s Anatomy when Seattle Grace faced an unknown (then) virus.
This medical drama will forever hold a special place in our hearts. Way back in 2005, Meredith Grey, Cristina Yang and Izzie Stephens appeared on our screens as resident surgeons at the bustling Seattle Grace Hospital. Since then, the ensemble cast has welcomed and lost a whole host of strong female characters, even starring Ellen Pompeo’ in Season 19 — though we’re sure she’ll be back… one day.
It is an intense phenomenon that is unmatched in its genre and is sure to break your heart no matter how many times you watch it.
Another Shonda Rhimes masterpiece is the political thriller Scandal. Starring Kerry Washington as Olivia Pope, all seven seasons follow the former media consultant as she runs her own crisis management firm. The acclaimed series is perfect for fans of The West Wing, Designated Survivor or The Diplomat as it explores the political landscape of the White House and its wider hub, Washington, DC. There are over 120 episodes to watch, so what are you waiting for?
The Good Wife
The Good Wife is another legal and political drama that focuses on Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) as she returns to work after a notorious scandal. Her husband, Peter, who also happened to be the breadwinner, went to prison after being involved in a high-profile
profile of sex scandal and political corruption. After over a decade as a stay-at-home mom, Alicia revisits her law career and becomes a judge to support her family. The acclaimed show ran for seven seasons, with more than 156 episodes in total and a whole host of overlapping storylines. If she passed you by when she first appeared, you’re already too late to dive into Alicia’s world.
How to Get Away With Murder
Discover Keating Criminal Law 101 – aka “how to get away with murder” . In fact, students often have to test their skills outside of the classroom to cover real murders. Academy Award winner Viola Davis leads this excellent legal crime drama that had us hooked from beginning to end (although the first season remains our all-time favorite). It mainly follows the so-called Keating 5, Annalise’s favorite students as they navigate the center of a series of accidental deaths while trying to pass class and solve legal cases for their clients.
Sally Wainwright’s beloved series Happy Valley gave us a perfect ending to its third and final season earlier this year. However, we’re still not over this British crime drama. If you haven’t already devoured all 18 episodes of Sarah Lancashire’s series, tune in to see police officer Catherine Cawood try to bring a criminal who has been haunting her to justice for years. It’s an emotional ride with twists and unexpected turns. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
The Bold Type
“The Bold Type” follows three young, determined millennials – Jane, Kat and Sutton – who meet as assistants at the – defunct – Scarlet magazine. For the record, I’d say Jane is Miranda (The Devil Wears Prada), Sutton is Carrie (Sex & the City), and Kat is totally a Samantha (Sex & the City)-. The magazine is based on Cosmopolitan, and former Cosmo chief Joanna Coles is executive producer of the series.
While Bold Type probably isn’t as bold as Lena Dunham’s “Girls,” it also doesn’t try to be. This is Freeform’s side of the aesthetically good, aspirational, Pinterest-friendly version of what it means to be “bold.” And to be honest this is more than necessary.
