When does it premiere? November 18
Who's in it? Patricia Arquette, in a performance that should surely garner awards chatter, as well as Paul Dano and Benicio Del Toro.
What it's about: Back in 2015, the American media was captivated by an almost-too-crazy-to-be true story of a prison break at the Clinton Correctional Facility in upstate New York. Not only did two inmates get loose, they were skilled at evading capture, and as details trickled out, their stories got more intriguing, involving painting and affairs.
Why you should care: In what we've seen of the series, Arquette is brilliant. Ben Stiller, who directs all the episodes, has a steady hand that sees the humor in the situation without denying anyone their humanity.
