Top 5 upcoming series to watch out for in 2016

Watching a range of quality series is a favorite pass time for many! And usually it always tends to be more than one series that everyone follows. Here is a list of top 5 upcoming series to watch out for that just might hit the mark in your books!

1) “Vinyl”

Synopsis: Richie Finestra, beleaguered president of a record label, tries to save his business and his soul while negotiating the sex, drugs and other pitfalls of the 1970s rock ‘n’ roll scene.

What You Need To Know: Co-created by Scorsese, his “Boardwalk Empire” collaborator Terence Winter and Mick Jagger, the show will star the superb Bobby Cannavale and excellent Olivia Wilde alongside Juno Temple, Max Casella, Ray Romano, Andrew Dice Clay and more, with Scorsese himself directing the two-hour pilot and Mark Romanek on board to helm at least one other episode. With all that hype it could seem like something that might disappoint, suggesting a show that truly lies at the nexus of Scorsese’s fascination with that era’s music, that has given us documentaries like “Shine a Light” not to mention some of the greatest movie soundtracks of all time, and his brilliance with stories of powerful men teetering between hubris and true greatness.

2) “Codes of Conduct”

Synopsis: Beverly Snow, a talented, self-confident young African-American man works his way into the upper echelons of New York society, despite his ambiguous background, testing the limits of access and social mobility.

What You Need To Know: Co-written by McQueen and “World War Z” writer Matthew Michael Carnahan. Starring complete newcomer Devon Terrell,Paul Dano will play the young entrepreneur who takes Snow under his wing and grants him access to the social elite, Helena Bonham Carter appears as a wealthy socialite and Rebecca Hall will play the privileged eldest child of a New York billionaire and Snow’s possible nemesis. There are heady, potentially very troubling and worthwhile themes at play here and we can’t imagine anyone better suited to tackle them than McQueen, who will be directing all six episodes.

3) “One Mississippi”

Synopsis: A darkly comic, semi-autobiographical story of a woman named Tig, coping with her own ill health, returning home to Mississippi following the death of her irrepressible mother Caroline.

What You Need To Know: It may be billed as loosely autobiographical, but it is still intense. Also starring ubiquitous character actor John Rothman, with Noah Harpster from “Transparent,” and Casey Wilson from Hulu’s parody sitcom ‘Hotwives,’ it’s probably got a higher profile behind the camera, being co-written by Notaro and Diablo Cody (“Juno,” “The United States of Tara“), exec produced by Louis C.K., with the pilot directed by the great Nicole Holofcener (“Enough Said,” “Friends with Money“).

4) “Taboo”

Synopsis: In 1813, roguish adventurer James Delaney returns to Britain from America with 14 stolen diamonds in tow, determined to avenge the death of his father.

What You Need To Know: The 8-episode miniseries is penned by Hardy’s “Locke” writer/director Steven Knight (“Eastern Promises,” “Peaky Blinders“), and based on an idea from Hardy and — wait for it — his father,Chips Hardy. With Knight touting the show’s institutional adversary, the once-omnipotent East India Company as a combination of“the CIA, the NSA, and the biggest, baddest multinational corporation on earth,” which has already got some historians’ backs up, and with the regular director of the Danish “The Killing,” Krystoffer Nyholm tapped to direct the whole show, this sounds like it could have brains and even maybe a little controversy, as well as brawn and beauty. Produced by Ridley Scott and co-starring “House of Cards” standout Michael Kelly, “Game of Thrones” standout Oona Chaplin and “Tomorrow Never Dies” standout Jonathan Pryce.

5) “The Get Down”

Synopsis: An all-singing, all-dancing saga about a group of Bronx teens growing up in the nearly bankrupt New York City of the 1970s who become instrumental in shaping the burgeoning hip-hop and disco scenes.

What You Need To Know: This Netflix show, which will run to 13 one-hour-long episodes, stars “Dope” breakout Shameik Moore, Twitter personality Jaden Smith, “Paper Towns” star Justice Smith (no relation), Skylan Brooks from “The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete” and newcomers Herizon F Guardiolaand Tremaine Brown Jr alongside veterans Giancarlo Esposito, Jimmy Smitsand Yolonda Ross. Taking in the touchpoints of ’70s New York from CBGBs to the Bronx tenements to Studio 54 to the just-built World Trade Center, the show, which was created by Luhrmann who directs throughout, along with “The Shield” showrunner Shawn Ryan, certainly has an explosively diverse and colorful backdrop. Although Luhrmann’s promising some grit as well as glamor this time out, it’s possible we’d be a little more hesitant about this, especially seeing as Martin Scorsese has his own 1970s music scene TV show coming this year.
