According to studies, most people consider autumn the coziest time of the year, and despite the cold and gray skies, it is a time of year that is remembered for its warmth and soulfulness. Watching TV series under the noise of the rain, thematic games at licensed online casino with a cup of hot tea, walking through the alleys of the park under the rustling of fallen leaves… All these autumn joys are supplemented by watching series, which make you feel even more comfortable.
Impeachment: American Crime Story
Showrunner Ryan Murphy is a real TV hard-liner. In the past year alone, after signing a contract with Netflix (the online movie theater “bought” Murphy, according to Time, for $300 million), he has aired the series “Hollywood,” “Ratched,” the second season of “Politico” and the star musical “Graduation.” In 2021, “Holston” and the sequel to his anthology “American Horror Stories” came out under Murphy’s banner.
The upcoming season will also delight with a new installment in the “American Crime Story” anthology. It focuses on highlights of recent U.S. history: such as the crime of actor O. J. Simpson in season one and the death of designer Gianni Versace in season two.
The new block of series will do without human losses: “Kill” will be a career and reputation, because in the center of the plot of the affair between Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky’s intern. The season’s subtitle “Impeachment” harks back to 1998, when Congressmen used the affair between the 42nd American president and Lewinsky as an excuse to topple him. The story is based on the best-selling book by lawyer and CNN analyst Jeffrey Toobin, The Big Conspiracy: The Real Story of the Sex Scandal that Almost Destroyed the President. Monica Lewinsky will be played by young actress Beanie Feldstein and Bill Clinton by Clive Owen.
Crime investigations have been shown many times on TV from the perspective of police officers, private investigators, and ordinary citizens. But since Bones, detective stories have rarely been told from the point of view of a forensic pathologist or criminologist, the most unsightly but important of professions. Filling the gaps in this field will be the creator of Britain’s “Shameless,” Paul Abbott. His six-part “Wolf” – about Professor Wolf Kinteh, a genius from the world of criminology, suffering from bipolar disorder, which causes him a lot of inconvenience in his professional and personal life. Judging from Abbott’s past work, we can expect not only drama but also authorial irony. “I wanted to write the world’s first funny show about a pathologist,” Abbott explained in an interview with the Guardian.
The Lost Symbol
Screen adaptations of Dan Brown’s bestselling books “The Da Vinci Code,” “Angels and Demons” and “Inferno” have previously steadily reached audiences as high-profile blockbusters starring Tom Hanks. But in the next work of the writer, the book “The Lost Symbol”, the approach to the adaptation has changed: it was decided to make a serial from the original source, and the main character, Harvard professor Robert Langdon – a lot of rejuvenation.
Now the amateur solving cultural mysteries is played by actor Ashley Zuckerman (previously played in the project “The Heirs”), and his adventures last for 10 episodes. The plot is built around Robert Langdon’s mentor: the head of the Smithsonian Institute, Peter Solomon. He disappears without a trace, and the mysterious kidnappers leave a chain of unusual tasks for Robert. Only by unraveling their meaning, Langdon can find a loved one. And along the way, of course, to discover one of the Masonic shrines.
