What We’re Watching: June

From record shops in Brooklyn to the court of a Russian Czar, to a dystopian carceral future, the office’s favourite watches this month truly span the ages.


 The most recent period dramedy from Australian writer Tony McNamara (who was also responsible for Oscar-winning The Favourite) has enthralled Screenhub’s editor, David Tiley. The series is based on a play about Catherine the Great that McNamara wrote for the Belvoir in Sydney – the success of which led him to his work on The Favourite. David recommends this series, saying that it pulls into focus ‘the zaniest and most exciting elements of The Favourite, in this account of an innocent at the disgustingly decadent, perverse, hilarious and unconsciously honest court of Peter the Third, Czar of Russia.’
