What you need to know about COVID-19: September 29, 2020
Pandemic or no pandemic, summer or winter, you can find me in sweatpants watching television. Is there a snack in my hand? It’s safe bet. Did I ask my husband to grab me something even though I’m perfectly capable and actually closer at the time? Definitely. The good news for me – and everyone with a similar sloth lifestyle – is that there are new TV series coming soon.
I’ll Be Gone in the Dark (HBO, June 28)
A six-part docuseries following the late writer Michelle McNamara investigating the unsolved mystery of the Golden State Killer. This is an incredibly interesting story of impressive amateur sleuthing yielding real results. My sleuthing is pretty limited to secretly watching my neighbours argue in the hallway through my peephole so it’s yielded nothing except satiating my curiosity.
Unsolved Mysteries (Netflix, July 1)
Stranger Things showrunner Shawn Levy is rebooting the popular Unsolved Mysteries show, which deep dives into various cold cases. I prefer some resolution to my true crime TV shows so I don’t have to fight paralyzing fear to fall asleep each night but maybe you’ll like this one!
Say I Do (Netflix, July 1)
Get ready to tear up as we follow eight couples from the perfect proposal to their dream wedding. Couples are guided by three experts in the fashion, food and interior design world.
Stateless (Netflix, July 8)
This series is based on true events, exploring Australia’s immigration system while telling the stories of four different families brought together in the same detention center.
Expecting Amy (HBO Max, July 9)
A peak into the life of comedian, Amy Schumer, as she takes on a comedy tour while dealing with pregnancy complications. Based on the trailer, this will be hilarious, vulnerable, and the exact level of TMI I look for.
Love on the Spectrum (Netflix, July 22)
A four-part docuseries following seven single adults on the autism spectrum as they explore love and relationships. The singles receive help from their families, experts, and couples who have already found their match.
Selling Sunset (Netflix, Aug. 7)
The third season of the reality show follows the same real estate agents through million-dollar listings to weddings to divorces to drama among coworkers and it all happens in heels.
Love Fraud (Showtime, August 30)
A true crime docuseries investigating con man Richard Scott Smith. For over 20 years Richard tricked women into relationships and then stole from them. The series tells the stories of the victims as they seek justice. If you liked Dirty John, you’ll love this one!
Need something more urgent to occupy your time? We just crushed all 3 seasons of Sneaky Pete (Prime Video), are heading into season 2 of Broadchurch (Prime Video), and my weekly routine goes 90 Day Fiancé (TLC), The Challenge (MTV), Double Shot at Love (MTV), Labor of Love (City TV), rinse and repeat. I hope that inspires you to put down that productivity and put up those feet.
