What are you watching? Where are you eating? What Broadway show do I have to get tickets to? What about fun fall festivals?
Do you have any of these questions? If so, I’ve got answers! I love a good fall preview so I thought I’d share all the things I’m so excited about BEFORE I actually do them!
Let’s start with TV…fire up the DVR!
Season premiere dates of my regular favorites that need no explanation:
Will and Grace 10/4
The Man in the High Castle 10/5
Madam Secretary 10/7
House of Cards 11/2
New Shows I’m interested in:
The Romanoffs 10/12 – Stories of people around the world who believe they are descendants of the Russian royal family.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina 10/26 – Supernatural television series based on the comic book series of the same name. Starring Kiernan Shipka from Mad Men.
Maniac 09/21 – Mini-series starring Emma Stone, Jonah Hill, Justin Theroux and Sally Field
A Million Little Things 09/26 – A group of friends from Boston who bonded under unexpected circumstances. Some have achieved success, others are struggling in their careers and relationships, but all of them feel stuck in life.
Single Parents 9/26 – Single parents as they lean on each other to help raise their 7-year-old kids and maintain some kind of personal lives outside of parenthood.
