We know: There's too much TV out there. You can barely get through your Netflix queue as is. Well, we've got some bad news for you, because Peak TV shows no signs of slowing down. In fact, it's ramping up. Over the next couple of years, some of the biggest names in entertainment are choosing the small screen over the big one to tell their stories. That means there are plenty of series with their sights set on the Zeitgeist coming down the pipeline. Here are just a few to get excited about.
The Chi (Showtime)
You won’t have to wait long for this new Showtime drama, from Lena Waithe and Common, because it’s scheduled to premiere in January. Waithe, who is known for her trailblazing work on Master of None, has crafted a mosaic of life inside inner-city Chicago. The show already has a trailer, and it looks bright, colorful, and full of life. We would even go so far as to say it looks like the show we need right now.
