Anatomy of a Scandal
Based on Sarah Vaughan’s eponym novel, and inspired by two major events that occurred in 2000 and 2010 covered in the British news. Currently the most popular series, the new Netflix original raises the burning question of consent and sheds light on the gender imbalance in sexual harassment accusations. When a sexual scandal burst into the privileged world of British members of parliament, the notoriety of James Waterhouse is threatened. His extramarital relationship with his assistant is revealed in the media, as the young woman accuses him of rape and the scandal breaks. But, the series is mainly interested in another woman: Sophie Whitehouse, played by Sienna Miller, a model wife and collateral victim of the actions of a husband she supports, at least in appearance.
The Ultimatum: Marry or Move On
“Get hitched or call it quits” reads this saucy series’ description. Launched by the producers of Love is Blind: this show put several couples to the test of commitment. A provocative TV reality show where couples have to evaluate the resistance of their love while meeting other potential partners. The first season promises to be electric!
Lizzo: watch out for the big girls
Lizzo has undeniably revolutionised the music industry, and is here to do the same with Reality TV. In the singer’s new show, we follow her journey to recruit plus-sized dancers to join her next world tour. The perfect occasion to put confident, sensual, and talented plus-sized dancers upfront. Each of the 10 contestants will be put through a series of tests to demonstrate their performing skills. The aim is to follow Lizzo in her search for the perfect crew, through hours of rehearsals, while promoting body positivity and self-love.
The Spanish series comes back for a 5th season, and is already topping Netflix’s most popular shows. At the beginning of the season, the young Samuel is caught in a murder case that he did not commit, prompting him to discover heavy secrets of data traffic on Las Encinas high school students. With several new characters introduced and contributing to the plot, this season offers a viewing rich in twists and turns.
The Marked Heart
The New Colombian crime series released on April 20th is catching all the attention. The viewer is plunged into a chain of events that takes place when Simón’s wife Valeria is killed so that her heart can be used to save the wife of a millionaire, Camila. The murder is committed because Zacarías is willing to do anything for Camila to live. But, he remains ambiguous about how he managed to find a donor in such a short time.
If you are into suspenseful series this is a must-see for you!
The British remake of “Call my Agent” is finally heading to Amazon’s Prime. Just like the successful French version, the series follows a group of agents at a fictional British talent agency and depicts the U.K industry’s fierce competition. The eight episodes will be launched on April 28th. Will it be as good as our French counterparts? We will see!
The new phenomenon inspired by Alice Oman’s graphic novel, tells the love story of two school boys, Nick and Charlie. While romantic series are multiplying on Netflix, this one is worth the watch and has raised a lot of expectations, as it is the adaptation of a highly successful webcomic. Charlie, who is openly homosexual, develops feelings for ‘Rugby Lad’ Nick, but tries to hide his fondness in a bid to preserve their friendship, as he is unsure of Nick’s sexual orientation. However, Nick is soon to be confronted with the identity quest of adolescence, as he begins to question his sexuality and friendship with Charlie.

This season will continue to chronicle the hilarious adventures of Jules (Kat Dennings), a vivacious young woman taking a fresh start after being dumped by her boyfriend. Instead of letting her heartbreak demoralize her, Jules will reclaim all the friendships she left behind. Seeing her overcoming hardship and feeling empowered by her girl squad: Madison (Brenda Song) and Star (Shay Mitchell), was exactly what we needed. In this new season, she’ll also build a new relationship with her co-worker Izzy (Esther Povitsky) which promises to be full of drama.
