While the traditional TV season may be over, the network’s summer fare is doing everything it can to lure in audiences. From dark crime dramas to light reality favorites, there is plenty for you to catch up on during the upcoming dog days. Here’s a look at 10 series you may have missed, but still have time to dive into before your old favorites make their fall returns.
Bonus: Humans (AMC)
Humans is the latest overseas series to find a home on cable here in the States and, based on early numbers, it is being watched by a substantial amount of people.
Taking place in a world where human-like androids have become commonplace, the series looks at a rogue group of “Synths” (short for synthetics) who have been split up and now find themselves trying to survive. Meanwhile the ever-talented William Hurt returns to TV for his first starring role as the creator of the program that launched the android roll-out and now finds himself realizing the flaws in the program. AMC bought the USA rights to the eight episode series and is running it Sunday nights (ironically) along with computer drama Halt & Catch Fire. This is one of those shows that easily can go under the radar, but also one you should seek out.Des Willie / ©AMC/Channel 4 / Courtesy: Everett Collection
