The best new TV to stream this week – from Single Drunk Female to Serving The Hamptons
FANCY a documentary? A drama? a comedy? All three?
Whatever you're in the mood for this week, The Sun's TV Mag is here to point you in the right direction.
Serving The Hamptons – Discovery+
Take a shot of Vanderpump Rules, mix with a splash of Below Deck and stir in a healthy dose of Summer House and you’ve got this mouth-watering new five-part reality series all about 75 Main, a popular and exclusive restaurant in the Hamptons.
Tracking the trials and tribulations of the restaurant’s uniformly young and good-looking staff – including hostess Samantha Crichton – who live together in a smart beach house, it promises a hearty helping of romance, drama, arguments and annoying diners.
Single Drunk Female – Disney+
When twentysomething Samantha Fink’s (Sofia Black-D’Elia) problems with alcohol put the skids under her trendy New York media career, she’s forced to return home to her mum in Boston and face up to her addiction.
But, finding herself surrounded by many of the triggers that made her drink in the first place and a host of ghosts from her past, it proves even more painful than she expected. A smart, funny and warm-hearted new series.
The Straits – Acorn TV
If you’re missing watching Brian Cox play the tough head of a dysfunctional family who’s worried about which of his clan might succeed him, check out The Straits, in which Brian plays – yes – the tough head of a dysfunctional family who’s worried about which of his clan might succeed him.
This darkly funny Australian crime drama from 2012 stars Brian as Harry Montebello, whose family have a successful drugs and guns smuggling business, despite bitter power struggles. But when they come under attack from some brutal gangs, the Montebellos must pull together to survive.
Harry Wild – Acorn TV
A cantankerous, brash and rude retired literature professor living in Dublin, Harriet ‘Harry’ Wild (played by the legendary Jane Seymour) finds herself sucked into the world of crime-solving when she sees similarities between a murder that her police detective son Charlie is investigating and the plot of an obscure Elizabethan play.
She can’t help attempting some amateur sleuthing and, before long, realises she has a talent for it. Cue seven further episodes of cleverly constructed whodunnit fun with Jane having a ball as Harry, who's all waspish put downs with a wicked twinkle in her eye.
