The Bold Type (2017-present)
The Bold Type is to media as Younger is to publishing: batshit plotlines that do not at all reflect the reality of the industry it's portraying, and yet we can't stop watching. Jane, an implausible up-and-coming writer, Kat, the glass-ceiling breaking biracial and bisexual head of social media, and Sutton, a girl with an innately on-brand fashion sense, are best friends working at the women's magazine Scarlet, a facsimile of Cosmopolitan -- unsurprising, since the show was produced closely with people from the magazine, including former editor-in-chief Joanna Coles. For all its crazy hyperbole, The Bold Type manages to talk about important women's issues, from sexuality and fertility to gun rights, with unexpected finesse. The pitch-perfect karaoke scenes, however, are pure fantasy.
