 Need some help discovering what to watch, listen to, read, or catch-up on in the world of TV? This is the place! 

Texas-filmed Max Original LOVE & DEATH is at the top of our watch list this month! Catch new episodes Thursdays on HBO Max – and stay tuned for our post-finale conversation with Showrunner/Director/EP Lesli Linka Glatter and cast, coming soon! 


So much TV. So little time to watch. Here’s what you should be watching this month.


Why: It’s the final season! Some say it is one of the best series in 10 years. We say that is totally possible, but also what a journey Barry has been on (both the character and the series). It has gone from a dark “inside the industry” comedy that reflected life in LA (through the eyes of a “former” hitman). Now it enters more absurd and surreal territory that is at times hysterical, at times deeply depressing, and at times violent. Bottom line– this series is excellent on all levels (namely Bill Hader’s directing) and deserves your eyeballs.


When: Sundays at 10/9c on HBO and HBO Max.

– Caitlin McFarland, Co-President and Co-Founder


Why: So many reasons! The costumes? Check! The humor — check, check. The wild ride Nicholas Hoult and Elle Fanning have taken these historical characters through Tony McNamara’s leadership. Tony has taken his sharp wit and tone from The Favourite and turned it into an episodic delight. This series does require your attention. It is active viewing or you’ll miss the jokes… and they are plentiful and worth it.


When: Season 3 premieres May 12 on Hulu.

Why: Based on the hit 1987 film that created a meme before we had the word “meme” (ie “did she boil the bunny?”) – Alexandra Cunningham brings a sleek and sophisticated look at the story with Joshua Jackson and Lizzy Caplan’s charisma drawing us in. In two timelines, we have many questions on where we’re going with it all… what will be the same, what will be different…and does it matter?  We say, “no” it does not matter. Just soak up the chemistry and go on a VERY fun ride.


When: New episodes stream Sundays on Paramount+.

SLIP (Roku)

Why: Whether or not you enter the world of Slip with a pre-existing crush on Zoe Lister-Jones (Life In Pieces, New Girl), you will certainly leave with one. This new rom-com-with-an-edge from Lister-Jones (who serves as creator, writer, director, and star) uses alternate universes and what-ifs to explore who we are in and out of our relationships. Sexy, funny, and affecting when it wants to be. Put this on your to-watch list, posthaste.


When & Where: Season 1 is now streaming on The Roku Channel (for free!). 

– Jenn Morgan, Director of Programming


Watching TV: The best kind of homework assignment.


ATX TV Festival premiered the very first look at this series with a motorcycle rally and a very big party at the Paramount. We are thrilled to host the final season with Elgin James and team to see where the Mayans end up. Catch up and join us all at the festival! 


The final season premieres May 24 on FX. Seasons 1-4  are streaming now on Hulu.



It is too good, and too easy to watch. It is amazing that 30 years after it ended it is still THIS good.  Never seen it… WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?  Seen it a 100 times, let’s go for 101.  Then come see a script reading, live music, and panel at ATX TV Festival at ACL Live on June 2 (single tickets available here). All seasons are streaming now on Paramount+.

tiny beautiful things

If you want to feel your feelings (or even if you don’t), there is truly no one better to feel them with than Tiny Beautiful Things author/EP Cheryl Strayed and creator/showrunner/EP Liz Tigelaar. Catch up (or rewatch) all 8 episodes now on Hulu, and then join us for a conversation with Cheryl and Liz  at ATX TV Festival on June 2! 

–  Jenn Morgan, Director of Programming


A little something to look forward to.

BUPKIS (Peacock)

As a genre, the “semi-autobiographical comedy” really works when it works — and with Pete Davidson, Edie Falco, Joe Pesci, and a WHOLE lot of guest stars (including Bobby Cannavale, Charlie Day, John Mulaney, and yes, Al Gore) in the mix, the odds of Bupkis working are high. Check it out May 4 on Peacock!


SILO (Apple TV+)

Silo has many things going for it (including an excellent trailer) — but at the very top of that list is Showrunner (and ATX TV Festival Advisory Board member/festival favorite) Graham Yost, and star Rebecca Ferguson at the center. Throw in some dystopian intrigue, and we. are. in. 

Silo premieres May 5 on Apple TV+. 

PRIMO (Amazon Freevee)

Shea Serrano’s upcoming series, Primo (inspired by his experience growing up in San Antonio, TX), is primed fill that feel-good, Mike-Schur-comedy part of your brain. The series premieres May 19 on Freevee — and you can also join us at ATX TV Festival for a screening with Serrano & cast on June 2! (Single Tickets and Badges available HERE).

When you just need a good book... about TV.

"Into Every Generation: How Buffy the Vampire Slayer Staked our Hearts" by EVAN ROSS KATZ

Buffy the Vampire Slayer is my favorite show. Period. Ever. Evan Ross Katz puts into words what every Buffy fan knows in their hearts but can’t clearly explain about why Buffy (the series and the person) is so important to us as individuals and to us as a society, and why some people just don’t get it. The first half of the book walks you through the journey of making the seven seasons, making me cry multiple times at the mere mention of “those scenes” (the ones that made all of us cry). The second half begins to discuss the parts of the show that are problematic (on screen and off), and how we now reconcile these truths. And, finally, and most importantly, he gives SMG the recognition and adoration she truly deserves that we all, including super fan Stacey Abrams, clearly agree with.
