The Morning Show

From highlighting MeToo in Season 1 to TV host Alex Levy (Jennifer Aniston) livestreaming during covid in Season 2, the latest season, set in 2022, questions the future of legacy media and has some new faces, including Jon Hamm as tech billionaire Paul Marks, who is also into commercial space flight. UBA Studios is struggling financially and CEO Cory Ellison (Billy Crudup) is looking to sell the network to Marks. Levy is seeking more power at UBA, while evening show host Bradley Jackson (Reese Witherspoon), who is chasing a story on the abortion laws in Texas, is worried about her personal life becoming public after a hacking attack on the network. This season though belongs to Crudup as the unpredictable and mercurial CEO. (Apple TV+)

The Outfit

A still from The Outfit.

“I am not a tailor. I am a cutter. Anyone with a needle and thread and 15 minutes can be a tailor. I studied for decades to be a cutter," says Leonard Burling (Mark Rylance), the Britisher who runs a bespoke tailoring shop in a Chicago neighbourhood of the 1950s, assisted by Mable (Zoey Deutch). His clients include the mobster Roy Boyle, his son Richie and Boyle’s henchman Francis; a lockbox in his backroom is used by the gang for exchanging messages. One night it gets bloody at the shop as it turns out there is a snitch in the gang. Rylance is splendid as he plays the cat and mouse game in this Graham Moore thriller set in a room. (Netflix)
