Big Little Lies
Season 1
Website / Reviews
Based on the New York Times best-seller of the same name by Liane Moriarty, this seven-part limited series is a subversive, darkly comedic drama that weaves a tale of murder and mischief as it explores society’s myth of perfection and the contradictions that exist beneath our idealized façade of marriage, sex, parenting and friendship.

Obit
Website / Reviews
Every day, editorial obituary writers deposit the details of a handful of extraordinary lives into the cultural memory — each life’s story spun amid the daily beat of war, politics and football scores. “Obit.” is the first documentary to explore the world of these remarkable writers and their subjects, focusing on a small team at the New York Times who approach their work with journalistic rigor and narrative flair.

Crashing
Season 1
Website / Reviews

The semi-autobiographical show follows Pete Holmes as he tries to become a stand-up comedian after his wife cheats on him and he’s left with nothing else. When Pete hits rock bottom, he decides to follow his dreams and tries his best at stand-up shows; however, he’s not as talented as he would like to think.
