“Ripley” – Premiering on Netflix internationally on April 4th

It might be tough to surpass the 1999 film “The Talented Mr. Ripley” starring Matt Damon as the con artist and social climber Tom Ripley, hired by the father of idle rich kid Dickie Greenleaf (Jude Law) to persuade his expatriate son to return home to New York. But if anyone can reinvent Ripley, it’s the great Andrew Scott (“Fleabag”), who takes on the lead role in the adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s detective novel “Ripley.” Johnny Flynn plays Dickie, and Dakota Fanning plays his girlfriend Marge Sherwood in the series, set in 1960s Italy and with an even darker tone than the film. “Words like sociopath, psychopath, or pseudo-sexual killer, all that stuff is just useless to me,” Scott told Vanity Fair about playing Tom. “Though he’s not always a reliable hero, he’s the hero of the story.” Screenwriter and director Steve Zaillian (“Night”) also stands out for his stylish black-and-white execution.

“Sugar” – Premiering on April 5th on Apple TV Worldwide

Colin Farrell stars as John Sugar, a modern-day noir detective in Los Angeles. Hired to find a missing Hollywood mogul’s granddaughter, Sugar uncovers dark family secrets while navigating the city’s underbelly. Co-starring Amy Ryan, the series is directed by Fernando Meirelles.

“Dinosaur” – Premiering on April 5th on Hulu

Set in Glasgow, “Dinosaur” follows Nina, a woman with autism, whose life is upended when her sister impulsively marries.


Nina juggles a potential new romance, her career as a paleontologist, and bridesmaid duties. Led by Ashley Storrie, who is autistic herself, the series explores themes of love and independence.

“Mr. Bates vs. the Post Office” – Premiering on April 7th on PBS

Toby Jones portrays Alan Bates in this drama based on the Horizon IT scandal. Falsely accused postal workers, including Bates, fight against bureaucratic injustice. Monica Dolan co-stars as Joe Hamilton, caught in a Kafkaesque nightmare of wrongful conviction.

“Franklin” – Premiering on April 12th on Apple TV+ Worldwide

Michael Douglas takes on the role of Benjamin Franklin in this historical drama set during the American Revolution.
