This Month’s Highlights

Forever

The main attractions of Master of None co-creator Alan Yang’s newest project, Forever, are its stars, Maya Rudolph and Fred Armisen. That’s all that we really know — the show is being strangely coy about its premise. For now, all we have is this summary: “Married couple June (Maya Rudolph) and Oscar (Fred Armisen) live a comfortable but predictable life in suburban Riverside, California. For 12 years they’ve had the same conversations, eaten the same meals and taken pleasant vacations at the same rented lake house. But after June talks Oscar into shaking things up with a ski trip, the pair suddenly find themselves in completely unfamiliar territory.” What does that mean? Who knows, really — but it could be really good. Arrives September 14.

King Lear

A two-part BBC2 adaptation of the classic play, King Lear stars Anthony Hopkins as the titular monarch and moves the setting to the present day for a grim take on an exceptionally dark tragedy, and the king’s gradual descent into madness is made even more unsettling in the gray light of the 21st century. Arrives September 28.
