The key series for the week of April 11


  • The adaptation of the ‘best-seller’ ‘Anatomy of a Scandal’ and the supernatural neo-western ‘outer range’among our proposals for Disney +, Movistar Plus +, Netflix, Prime Video and Apple TV +

It will have been an intense weekend thanks to the double episode of ‘Tokyo vice’, a return to the Michael Mann series, but the pace won’t slow down too much in the following days: necessary rescues, new irresistible ‘thrillers’ and feminist ingenuities storm our screens.

one. ‘New York cops’, a dour wonder

Half-hidden among the Disney+ news for April we find great news: the recovery of ‘New York Police’, the mythical 1993 co-creation of Steven Bochko Y David Milch, with great episodes written by Ann Biderman in its first season or others directed by John Hyams in the last ones. Time to meet hot-tempered Detective Andy Sipowicz (Dennis Franz) and his companions, including John Kelly (David Caruso) and Bobby Simone (Jimmy Smits). Disney+, Wednesday, the 13th.

two. ‘Showtrial’, another British ‘thriller’ to check

The producers of ‘Line of duty’ and ‘Vigil’ are behind this five-episode thriller with echoes of the Amanda Knox case. An arrogant college girl (celine buckens, the girl from ‘War horse’), the daughter of an influential businessman (James Frain), is arrested on suspicion of the murder of a classmate. The high-profile legal battle pits a police detective (Sinéad Keenan) against a lawyer (Tracy Ifeachor) in need of a hit. Movistar Plus +, from Wednesday, the 13th.

3. ‘Anatomy of a scandal’, begins the reign of Sarah Vaughan

The novelist (and former reporter for ‘The Guardian’) Sarah Vaughn he took a dark turn in his career with ‘Anatomy of a Scandal’, a judicial ‘thriller’ on questions of consent and privilege. Now comes the miniseries adaptation of the ‘hitmaker’ David E. Kelley (‘Big little lies’, etc.), with Rupert Friend as the politician accused of rape and Sienna Miller as his increasingly restless wife. The adaptation of another book by Vaughan should also arrive soon: ‘Small Disasters’. Netflix, Friday, the 15th.

4. ‘Outer range’, the unknown (dusty) dimension

If we put a few milligrams of ‘Yellowstone’, a few more of ‘True Detective’ and some of ‘The X Files’ into a test tube, the sinister result would be very similar to ‘Outer range’. Josh Brolin (also a producer and, apparently, an occasional director), who already tried the supernatural western in ‘Jonah Hex’, plays a Wyoming rancher who discovers a circular void in the middle of the prairies. lili taylor is his wife, and Imogen Pootsa disturbing backpacker. Prime Video, Friday, the 15th.

5. ‘Roar’, women on the verge of roaring

The first project arising from the agreement of Liz Flahive Y Carly Mensch, creators of the lamented ‘GLOW’, with Apple TV + is an anthology of dark feminist fables based on a book of stories by Cecelia Ahern (author of ‘Postscript: I love you’). Among the actresses who play women unwilling to follow prototypical roles, a handful of big names: Nicole Kidman (also producer), Cynthia Erivo, Alison Brie or Merritt Weverwho gets involved with a duck. Apple TV +, Friday, the 15th.
