Light some candles, grab a cup of tea and your comfiest blanket—it's time to rejoice in the hygge cultivated by your nearest streaming device. Here are five new shows we can't wait to watch in February.
Z: The Beginning of Everything (Amazon Prime)
Fabulous jazz age frocks? Check. Lavish art deco sets? Yup. Amazon's new 30-minute drama stars Christina Ricci as the titular "Z," and tells the turbulent, early love story of her strong-minded southern debutante Zelda Sayre with great American novelist and husband, F. Scott Fitzgerald. It's like the The Notebook, only with more drinking. Premiered January 27th on Amazon Prime.
Big Little Lies (HBO)
Moms...Murder...and Monterey, California. Say no more—it's set to be a winning combination for this show which was adapted from Liane Moriarty's similarly titled bestselling book. The series follows the lives of three wealthy, seemingly perfect mothers (Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, and Shailene Woodley) in sleepy coastal California town as their lives take a dark and murderous turn. Premieres February 19th on HBO.
Santa Clarita Diet (Netflix)
Speaking of sleepy California towns, Netflix's new comedy stars Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant as a soon-to-be-divorced Santa Clarita, California real estate agents. I know what you're thinking, and no, the new fad diet these two are on isn't gluten-free, or paleo, it's...well, um...eating human flesh. Oh right, did I mention Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant's characters are also zombies? (Also, Drew Barrymore was in Scream and Timothy Olyphant was in Scream 2, so that's fun.) Premieres Feb 3rd on Netflix.
Abstract: The Art of Design (Netflix)
As the 'Chef's table for design,' Abstract promises to deliver the same gravitas for the design world's rising stars as "Chef's Table" has for culinary heavyweights. The series will follow eight designers, like architect Bjarke Ingels and interior designer Ilse Crawford, as they reveal their creative genius and vulnerabilities. Premieres February 10th on Netflix.
With the phrase "Judd Apatow-produced" attached to it, we know with Crashing we're likely in store for a heartfelt and riotous comedy. The series follows a down-on-his-luck comedian (played by Peter Holmes) who crashes on the couches of his comedian friends, like Sarah Silverman, Hannibal Buress, and more, when his wife leaves him. Premieres February 19th on HBO.
