What? The Deuce is the story of the legitimization of the porn industry in the 1970’s New York.

When? Premiered September 10th and airs Sundays at 9pm

Where? HBO

Why? I will give any HBO show a chance, and right now they are looking for a new flagship series with Game of Thrones winding down.  I love historical fiction and gritty drama, so this series looks right up my alley.  The Deuce was created by George Pelecanos David Simon, the same two who created one of my all-time favorite shows, The Wire.  And James Franco playing two characters – I’ve gotta see that.

YouTube

Who? Kyra Sedgwick, Erika Christensen, Malcolm Jamal Warner

What? “An overworked television producer and single mother in the middle of a fractious separation; young daughter goes missing in the middle of the night, Jane’s world – and her controversial police series – implodes.”

Where? ABC

When? Premieres October 1st, Sundays at 9

Why? What a great cast! It was created by Tassie Cameron and many aspects of the show are based on her life as a single mother who runs a cop show. I think this show has great potential to be the new can’t miss thriller and I feel like it may end up appointment TV for me.

The Mayor

What? “A struggling hip-hop artist runs for mayor to promote his mixtape and wins the election.

What? A down and out guy, Kevin, gets tapped by God to save the World.

When? Premieres October 3rd

Where? ABC

Why? I’m a little on the fence about Kevin, but Entertainment Weekly is Into it, so I’m going to give it a try. Jason Ritter is a Really talented actor & I think he can pull off the “superhero without tights” type of character.

Liar

The Mindy Project

Hulu

Who? Mindy Kaling, Ike Barinholtz, Ed Weeks, Xosha Roquemore

What? Dr. Mindy Lahiri tries to have it all in New York City.

When? Tuesdays

Where? Hulu

Why? Heading into its final season, Mindy Lahiri is far from the person she was at the start of the show.  She has grown up and the cast has changed (many times), but the show has remained fun and funny.  We love Mindy’s dedication to feature actors from all walks of life and to show that women really can do it all.  Mindy Kaling has said that Lahiri won’t necessarily end up with the rom-com happy ending everyone expects, and we are ready for a not so typical ending for a not so typical character.
