Best TV of October 2020: hmv.com previews five of the best shows...

hmv.com previews five of the most exciting TV dramas that will be coming to your screens in October...

 

Brave New World 

(Sky One)

 

Jessica Brown Findlay, Harry Lloyd and Alden Ehrenreich lead this glossy new take on Aldous Huxley's classic dystopian novel.

Huxley's book imagined a future in which society believed it had found utopia and peace and stability through the prohibition of monogamy, privacy, money, family, and history itself.

Sadly, when Lloyd's Bernard Marx and Brown Findlay's Lenina Crowne journey outside the strict social order of New London to the unregulated Savage Lands, their belief in their utopia begins to fall apart, which puts them on a collision course with their rulers back at home...

Ed Stoppard, Demi Moore, Nina Sosanya, Hannah John-Kamen and Joseph Morgan round out the all-star cast, while comic supremo Grant Morrison is among the writing talent on this nine-part series.

 

Riviera 

(Sky Atlantic)

 

The third season of this lavish drama returns in October. 

Julia Stiles leads the way with Poppy Delevingne returning to co-star and Rupert Graves joining the cast. 

After the explosive end of the second season, Stiles' Georgina has left the Riviera and is trying to start a new life.

As part of this, she's team up with Graves' Gabriel Hirsch and the two of them cross the globe in a bid to solve a conspiracy involved some very expensive stolen artwork...

 

The Undoing 

(Sky Atlantic)

 

Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant star in this high-octane new drama, which sees Kidman re-team with Big Little Lies creator David E. Kelley. 

Kidman plays Grace Fraser,  a successful therapist on the brink of publishing her first book, has a devoted husband and young son who attends an elite private school in New York.

Then, suddenly, her life begins to fall apart as a string of terrible revelations and a suddenly missing husband derail everything she has worked for... 

Kidman and Grant are joined by Édgar Ramírez, Noah Jupe, Lily Rabe, Sofie Gråbøl, Matilda De Angelis and Donald Sutherland for this six-episode thriller.

Susanna Bier, director of The Night Manager and Bird Box, is behind the camera, while Kelley adapts Jean Hanff Korelitz's book You Should Have Known for the series.

 

Billions

(Sky Atlantic)

 

Damian Lewis and Paul Giamatti return for the fifth run of the hit series, this time joined by The Good Wife's Julianna Margulies. 

In this run, Lewis' hot-shot Bobby Axelrod and Giamatti's snarling Attorney General go head to head as their vicious rivalry is re-awakened. 

As well as Marguiles, Corey Stoll and Frank Grillo join the cast for the new run, while Maggie Siff, David Costabile and Asia Kate Dillon are back to co-star in the new 12-episode run.

 

Industry

(BBC Two)

 

HBO and the BBC team up to create this dark drama, which arrives next month. 

Starring a cast of rising stars that includes Myha’la Herrold, Freya Mavor, Will Tudor and Marisa Abela, the show follows a group of young graduates competing for a limited set of permanent positions at a top investment bank in London. 

Lena Dunham directs the first episode of this eight-parter.
