Netflix has been scooping up broadcast television’s leading creators with maxed-out contracts. But while there’s been plenty of coverage for the deals afforded to Shonda Rhimes and Ryan Murphy, the streaming service now also has a show from Darren Starr, whose CV will forever be headlined by Sex and the City. Emily in Paris has more than a touch of that epochal hit’s DNA, as well as Starr’s more recent success Younger.
Lily Collins (The Blind Side, Okja) plays an American executive seconded to her company’s latest acquisition: a French luxury goods marketing firm. Cue Parisian locations, impeccable costume design and Gallic hunks who declare “you don’t come to Paris to be good.” Some spunk and self-awareness will be needed to make this fashion fantasy enjoyable and relevant.
“Instead of making an unnecessary second season, launch an anthology!” just might be a programming philosophy at Netflix. Having had success with the Criminal franchise and Black Mirror, the streaming service has now made a spiritual successor for The Haunting of Hill House, the acclaimed 2018 horror season about a family of troubled adult siblings still burdened by the events that befell them and their parents when paranormal phenomena overtook their home during childhood.

Creator and lead director Mike Flanagan returns, as do several cast members, with the new season taking inspiration from a foundation horror text—Henry James’ The Turn of the Screw. Victoria Pedretti plays a governess hired to look after children who’ve lost their parents who starts to believe the family home is haunted. If it matches Hill House then you can expect both sudden scares and lingering revelations.
This period detective thriller set a terrifically high benchmark in its first season, intertwining the inequality and tribalism of 1896 New York with procedural detail and inexplicable chills. Adapted from Caleb Carr’s 1994 best-seller, The Alienist introduced an exemplary cast: Daniel Bruhl (Rush) as the brilliant but uncompromising Dr Laszlo Kreizler, who pioneers criminal psychology before it even has a name, Dakota Fanning as Sara Howard, the blue blood who eschews society to be the first woman employed by the NYPD, and Luke Evans as John Moore, Kreizler’s friend and colleague.
The show’s pungent period detail averted any nostalgic glow. The new season picks up a year after the first concluded, with the trio searching for the kidnapped infant daughter of the Spanish consul.
A cult paperback novel about the inner realms and everyday difficulties of unexpected genius written by Walter Tevis, who remains best known for The Hustler, this story of an orphaned American girl who discovers that she has an otherworldly talent for chess has been obsessing both readers and Hollywood since it was published in 1983. One of the many attempted film adaptations was to have been directed by Heath Ledger, but the text has finally arrived as a Netflix series, written and directed by Scott Frank, who put together one of Netflix’s earliest and best original series: the feminist western Godless.
Anya Taylor-Joy, who in The Witch and Split displayed a self-possession so fierce it was frightening, will play the teenage and adult Beth Harmon: a distaff Bobby Fischer in the 1960s setting who has her own demons to wrangle alongside grandmasters to beat.

The legal dynamics and verbal ripostes of the courtroom have always appealed to Aaron Sorkin. Nearly three decades after his breakthrough play A Few Good Men became a Hollywood hit, he returns with this timely historic drama about the Vietnam War activists whose protests during the Democratic convention in 1968 Chicago resulted in federal charges and a trial that made headlines across America.
As with 2017’s Molly’s Game, Sorkin directs his own screenplay, with a stacked cast that includes Sacha Baron Cohen, Eddie Redmayne, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Jeremy Strong among the accused, Mark Rylance and Joseph Gordon-Levitt as rival lawyers, and Frank Langella as the presiding judge. Expect trademark debates and stirring monologues.
No British filmmaker has enjoyed a more varied and unpredictable career over the last 10 years than Ben Wheatley, who’s done everything from inexplicable horror (Kill List) and period Pinter psychedelia (A Field in England) to dystopic style (High-Rise) and an all-star shoot-em-up (Free Fire).
One of the stars of the latter, Armie Hammer, returns for Wheatley’s new gambit, an adaptation of the already much adapted 1938 Daphne du Maurier Gothic novel about a young woman who marries a wealthy widower only to tangle with his gaslighting housekeeper and foreboding family home. Alongside Hammer, Lily James and Kristin Scott Thomas play the new bride and her inquisitor respectively. What does it have to top? Just Alfred Hitchcock’s 1940 version with Laurence Olivier and Joan Fontaine.
No viral success has been more welcome in 2020 than that of Sarah Cooper, the American stand-up comic whose lip-sync performances of Donald Trump’s press conference answers have memorably stripped away the artifice of his office to reveal the deluded ramblings of a wholly incapable leader. Going viral and a Netflix special are close to cause and effect these days, and this hour-long piece will mix sketches and short interviews that examine issues including politics, race, and gender. Actor Natasha Lyonne (Russian Doll) directs, and the chances are good that Cooper’s signature act will have an exclusive segment or two.
