Cast: Sonoya Mizuno, Nick Offerman, Alison Pill, Jin Ha
Why we're excited: Alex Garland's movies, like Annihilation and Ex Machina, are chilling sci-fi creations, and now he moves into the world of TV with FX's Devs. Set to star Maniac's Sonoya Mizuno, it follows a young woman who thinks the tech company she works for (run by Offerman) may be somehow involved in the death of her boyfriend.
Cast: Michelle Williams, Sam Rockwell, Margaret Qualley, Norbert Leo Butz
Why we're excited: Theater kids rejoice: We're finally getting a glossy limited series all our own. This project, executive-produced by Lin-Manuel Miranda and directed by Hamilton's Thomas Kail, will tell the story of the creatively fruitful romantic and professional partnership between choreographer-director Bob Fosse (Rockwell) and dancer-actress Gwen Verdon (Williams), whose collaborations birthed classics like Chicago and Sweet Charity.
The Gilded Age (NBC)
Why we're excited: Writer and executive producer Julian Fellowes, of Downton Abbey and Gosford Park fame, teams up with NBC for a 10-episode drama set in the capitalist free-for-all of 1880s New York City. Expect it to dissect manners, morals, and a wide divide between new money and old in a breezy, bingeable way.
