Many television critics have begun drawing attention to the idea that we’ve arrived at a point of “Peak TV” recently, as we will see more than 400 scripted shows in 2015. Anyone who uses streaming services like Netflix on a regular basis (read: pretty much everyone) knows the very real and admittedly ridiculous struggle of having too many options when it comes to choosing what to watch. With so much TV being produced in the last few years, it’s pretty much impossible to keep up with every “must-watch” show out there. This fall will see the usual avalanche of new shows hit the various networks and streaming platforms, many of which will not survive past their first season. Don’t let the overwhelming number of choices dissuade you from seeking out some of these new shows, however. While you’ll never be able to keep up with everything, the following 10 new shows are the ones you most want to keep an eye on, as they are poised to be the best of the fall TV season. Here’s what you need to know about each of them.
10. Flesh and Bone (November 8)
A show focused on ballet may not sound like the most intriguing of concepts, but as movies like Black Swan have shown, ballet is serious, painful business. Flesh and Bone not only tackles the grueling underbelly of the professional ballet scene, but has the benefit of being created by former Breaking Bad producer Moira Walley-Beckett, so you know that Flesh and Bone will at the very least have a similar dark and pulpy feel as that series. Flesh and Bone will live and die by its ability to balance its more soapy tendencies with its grittier side, but if it can pull it off, it may just be the best show ever made about ballet. Oh, and a pretty compelling emotional drama to boot!
