With so many varied shows coming our way, you’re sure to find one that fits your preference. Here are 10 television series premieres to watch out for over the coming month.
1. Master of None, November 6
This Netflix original show stars Ansari as Dev, a 30-year-old actor in New York who has trouble deciding what he wants to eat, much less figuring out the path for the rest of his life. Dev’s story leads him through all kinds of subjects, from as the plight of the elderly to the immigrant experience to how to find the most delicious pasta for dinner. It also chronicles Dev’s career as his character films a movie and viewers will also get to meet the character’s family – including his parents, which are played by Ansari’s real-life parents. The first season of the series will consist of 10 episodes.
2. Agent X, November 8
The upcoming TNT drama will follow the story of Vice President of the United States Natalie Maccabee (played Sharon Stone), who discovers there is a Special Agent who helps protect the country in times of crisis. John Case (Jeff Hephner) is the titular operative “Agent X” who handles sensitive cases that the CIA and the FBI cannot. John Shea co-stars as the President while Gerald McRaney and James Earl Jones play the Chief Steward of the VP’s mansion and the Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court, respectively. The series airs at 9 p.m. Eastern time.
3. Flesh and Bone, November 8
Sarah Hay stars in Starz’s upcoming 8-episode miniseries as Claire, a talented but emotionally troubled dancer, who joins a company in New York City. She soon finds herself completely wrapped up in the tough and often cutthroat world of professional ballet. Ben Daniels also co-stars in the film as the demanding artistic director. American Ballet Theater dancer Ethan Stiefel serves a consultant and choreographer on the dance-themed series, which exposes the gritty underbelly of the ballet world.
4. Donny!, November 10
The USA Network’s half-hour partially scripted comedy takes a satirical look at media, wealth and modern romance through the eyes of a fictionalized character based on real-life famed ad man, single dad, and TV personality Donny Deutsch. Deutsch the character hosts a daytime talk show, aptly named “Donny!,” but lives a very different life than the perfect one he portrays on camera ‑ especially when it comes to dating, as a single parent. The show premieres on Tuesdays at 10:30 p.m. Eastern time.
5. W/Bob & David, November 13
The television comedy sketch show, created and starring Bob Odenkirk and David Cross, is another original series from Netflix set to premiere this month. It will consist of four half-hour episodes plus an hour-long making-of special. In the series — after the pair have been dishonorably discharged from the Navy SEALs — Bob and David are back serving the U.S. in the way they do best: making sketch comedy.
Although the show will share much of the same writing team as Mr. Show with Bob and David, Odenkirk has stated it will not share the same structure, describing it as “lighter,” “less complex,” and “faster.”
6. Into the Badlands, November 15
AMC’s upcoming genre-bending martial arts series is very loosely based on the classic Chinese tale Journey to the West. In a land controlled by feudal barons, Into the Badlands chronicles the story of a ruthless, well-trained warrior named Sunny and a young boy who embark on a journey across a dangerous land to find enlightenment. Daniel Wu (City of Glass) stars as Sunny. The show also features Emily Beecham, Sarah Bolger and Oliver Stark and will air Sundays at 10 p.m. Eastern time.
7. Chicago Med, November 17
NBC’s new medical drama, from Law & Order honcho Dick Wolf, is described as “an emotional ride through the day-to-day chaos of the city’s most explosive hospital and the courageous team of doctors that holds it together.” The show will reportedly tackles cases inspired by topical events and intertwine the cast with characters from Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D. Oliver Platt stars as the Chief of the Psychiatry department Dr. Daniel Charles and S. Epatha Merkerson as Sharon Goodwin, the head of Chicago Med hospital. Nick Ghlfuss, Yaya DaCosta, Colin Donnell, and Torey DeVitto also co-star on the series, which will air Tuesdays at 9 p.m. Eastern time.
8. The Art of More, November 19
Crackle’s new drama takes place in the surprisingly cutthroat world of premium auction houses. It follows a blue-collar young man named Graham Connor (Cooke) who leverages his way into the exclusive realm of collectors, power mongers, and hustlers by exploiting connections to antiquities smuggling rings he was exposed to as a soldier in Iraq. Along the way, he crosses paths with charismatic real estate shark Samuel Brukner (Quaid). Though often the life of the party, Brunker is a master of charm and intimidation, and when it comes to his money, he is ruthless and corrupt. Kate Bosworth (Still Alice) also co-stars as Roxanna Whitney, the daughter to a CEO of one of two warring auction houses.
9. Marvel’s Jessica Jones, November 20
Netflix’s next original Marvel series will star Krysten Ritter as the titular female superhero, who suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder and subsequently decides to hang up her costume. She opens up her own detective agency, where she helps other superheroes and normal civilians alike. David Tennant will also co-star as the villain Kilgrave, while Mike Colter will play fellow hero and potential love interest (and future star of his own solo Netflix series), Luke Cage. The first season will consist of 13 episodes.
10. The Man in the High Castle, November 20
Amazon’s dystopian alternate history television series is based on the 1962 novel of the same name by Philip K. Dick. The story is an alternate history of the world in which the Axis powers won World War II. The United States has been partitioned into three parts: The Japanese puppet state of the Pacific States of America, which comprises the former United States west of the Rocky Mountains, a German puppet state that comprises the eastern half of the former United States, and a neutral zone that acts as a buffer between the two areas, called the Rocky Mountain States. Alexa Davalos, Rupert Evans, Luke Kleintak, DJ Qualls, and Joel de la Fuente co-star.
