Craving a night in? We’ve got six great new shows you can sink your teeth into.

Big Little Lies

If you enjoy high-stakes drama, chilling mystery and famous female faces, you’ll love Big Little Lies.

Based on the book by Australian author Liane Moriarty, Big Little Lies stars Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern and Shailene Woodley as housewives in the wealthy seaside suburb of Monterey.

Their home lives, while seemingly perfect from the outside, are fraught with violence, scandal and despair. Of course, it’s not long before it all starts to unravel.

The HBO show opens with a murder and slowly pieces together clues to reveal which of the women is responsible.

Where to watch: Mondays at 1pm or 8.30pm on Foxtel’s showcase channel, or via Foxtel On Demand, Foxtel Play or Foxtel Go.

Atlanta

If you like cutting-edge pop culture references, hip hop music and biting social commentary, you’ll love Atlanta. 

It’s the critically-lauded brainchild of writer, director and actor Donald Glover.

The former Community actor stars as Earn Marks, a struggling artist manager trying to kickstart his cousin’s rap career in the Georgia city.

The series is a blend of scathing social commentary, poignant humour, and a unique dash of magic realism that’ll have you up all night to watch “just one more” episode.

Still not convinced? Atlanta also boasts a brilliant soundtrack as well as one of the most incredible depictions of Justin Bieber you’re likely to ever see.

Where to watch: SBS on Demand.

Billions

If it’s courtroom drama you’re after, Billions can be best summarised as Law and Order meets The Wolf of Wall Street. 

It stars Homeland’s Damian Lewis as a charismatic 9/11 survivor who, while appearing honourable and just, runs his hedge fund using dodgy tactics.

Meanwhile, Paul Giamatti plays the son of a wealthy businessman, who is trying to prove himself and further his political career. Bringing down Damian Lewis’s character might be the perfect way to do it.

A study of good and evil where it’s hard to distinguish the bad guys from the good guys.

Where to watch: Stan.

Fonda and Tomlin shine as “women of a certain age” seeking to recapture their freedom and their youth after their lives are turned upside down.
