The Flight Attendant

In this dark comedy series from the producers of You, Kaley Cuoco plays a flight attendant who wakes up in a hotel room next to a dead passenger. The series is based on a mystery novel of the same name by Chris Bohjalian and features Girls’s Zosia Mamet as the dubious best friend alongside Rosie Perez as a nosy co-worker. Although the flight attendant’s memory is foggy, she sets out to prove her innocence while evading the cops but is dragged into a dangerous criminal underworld instead. November 26

 

Moonbase 8

This comedy series from the people behind Moonlight and The Lighthouse, follows a group of incompetent but resolute astronauts—played by Fred Armisen, Tim Heidecker and John C. Reilly—vying for glory. Stationed at a remote moon simulator in the Arizona dessert, the astronauts hope to redeem their inadequacy by successfully claiming a spot in NASA’s next lunar mission.
