You'll be laughing, crying, and binging these 7 TV series all night long.

The Gilded Age

The historical drama series, starring Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon, tells the story of a rural girl looking for her place in the rapidly changing turn-of-the-century New York of 1882. Among the show's creators are writer and producer Julian Fellowes and director Michael Engler, who were both involved in the award-winning series Downton Abbey.

The Dropout

The miniseries centers on the life and business of Elizabeth Holmes, played by Amanda Seyfried. As a young girl, Elizabeth dreamed of a career in medicine but was terrified at the sight of blood. At age 19, she dropped out of Stanford and, after persuading her parents to give her money, founded her own medical startup. Elizabeth became one of the richest women in the United States, but her story of success and ambition has gone terribly wrong.


The true story is based on the Wondery podcast of the same name about the rise and fall of the coworking service WeWork. Jared Leto portrays the service's founder Adam Neumann, and the role of his wife and most loyal companion is played by Anne Hathaway. The series tells the story of the business' growth from a single coworking space to a $47-million global brand and its rapid collapse due to financial revelations.

Tokyo Vice

The crime series is a screen adaptation of memoirs by the American journalist Jake Adelstein. It's set in Tokyo of the 1990s, when Adelstein is hired as a crime reporter for Japan's major English-language newspaper. His task is to shed light on the city's dark corners, so the reporter gets involved in a risky investigation of yakuza crimes. The series stars Ansel Elgort in the lead role, and his mentor and partner in the investigation is played by Ken Watanabe.


The historical biopic focuses on the figure of Martha Mitchell (played by Julia Roberts)—the wife of John Mitchell, U.S. Attorney General under President Richard Nixon, who was the first to report her husband and the president were involved in a conspiracy. Before the Watergate scandal broke out and Nixon was impeached, the woman had to endure what is now called "gaslighting": the authorities and the shocked press did everything possible to make the public perceive Martha as a crazy socialite whose words can't be taken for truth.

Slow Horses

Since Gary Oldman confessed he was going to retire from cinema, many viewers follow the spy thriller series Slow Horses with particular attention: this may be the last role in Oldman's career. Based on the novels by Mick Herron, the show depicts the work of a dysfunctional team of MI5 agents who have somehow bungled their job and are now doing paperwork in the "purgatory." The team gets a chance to prove their worth and regain the trust of the agency's superiors, so now the "Slough Horses" will do everything they can to restore their reputation and save Britain.

The Offer

The story behind the making of The Godfather is just as interesting as the film itself. Francis Ford Coppola–led production had to resolve the conflict with Paramount Studios, resolve disagreements within the crew, go through the incredibly difficult audition process, and even face mafia who didn't want their crimes to appear on big screens. The series' title is a reference to Vito Corleone's legendary line, "I'm gonna make him an offer he can't refuse."
