Gary, Fran and their teenage son DeAndre live in the slums of West Baltimore. They used to have a normal suburban family life until Gary and Fran started taking drugs.

Fargo

Evil Genius

Stars: Judy Ho, Jon Douglas Rainey

For centuries, brilliant minds have changed and shaped the world. But when genius is used for evil, the results are some of the most twisted, inventive, and outrageous crimes in history.

This is a show about how bad things work not things working badly; the inner-workings and process behind all the stuff that’s against the law. Think of it as Modern Marvels for the black market, smuggling, drugs, gangs, and other crime and vice.

The Pacific

Stars: James Badge Dale, Joseph Mazzello, Jon Seda

The Pacific follows the lives of a U.S Marine Corps squad during the campaign within the Pacific against the Japanese Empire during WW2. Made by the creators of Band of Brothers, it follows a similar line of thought to outline the hardships of the common man during war.

Where The Pacific takes a new direction from its “older brother” is in its depiction of the lives of soldiers who were picked to return home to increase the sales of war bonds.

In doing this it also depicts the life cycle of returned soldiers from initial joy to the eventual feeling of regret and to a certain extent shame felt by soldiers wanting to return to the war in service of either their comrades or nation.

Chernobyl

Creator: Craig Mazin
Stars: Jared Harris, Stellan Skarsgård, Jessie Buckley

CHERNOBYL dramatizes the story of the 1986 nuclear accident, one of the worst man-made catastrophes in history, and of the brave men and women who sacrificed to save Europe from unimaginable disaster, all the while battling a culture of disinformation.

 

Band of Brothers

Stars: Scott Grimes, Damian Lewis, Ron Livingston

This is the story of “E” Easy Company, 506th Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division from their initial training starting in 1942 to the end of World War II.

They also liberated a concentration camp and were the first to enter Hitler’s mountain retreat in Berchtesgaden. A fascinating tale of comradeship that is, in the end, a tale of ordinary men who did extraordinary things.
