With the coming of the New Year, most people are looking to hit the gym, start a diet and live an overall healthier life. Although I am unlike most people, so for 2014 I am seriously looking forward to all the new TV coming directly to my television, and luckily I don't have any resolutions so I will ring in 2014, the same way I spent the majority of 2013, by sitting on my couch watching an excessive amount f network TV! For those of you, who share my addiction, I have created a list of the top 5 new shows coming in 2014, so get ready to watch.
While I am a fan of drama series, the first TV show that I am looking forward to watching is a comedy mini-series. But trust me it’s worth it. “The Spoils of Babylon” is an all-new epic scale “TV event” spoof coming directly from the hilarious minds of Will Ferrell and Funny or Die. The series will premiere on IFC on January 9, 2014 and is staring a serious all star cast including, Tobey Maguire, Kristen Wiig, Tim Robbins, Jessica Alba, Val Kilmer, Haley Joel Osment, Michael Sheen, and Will Ferrell.
While my HBO countdowns are normally strictly reserved for “Game of Thrones” I am opening up my mind, simply because I miss the world of Westeros so much. HBO is premiering two brand new series for 2014; luckily for us both have serious potential. “True Detective” chronicles the lives of two detectives, Rust Cohle, played by Matthew McConaughey and Martin Hart, and played by Woody Harrelson. The pair becomes intertwined during the 17-year hunt for a brutal serial killer in Louisiana. In addition to “True Detective” HBO is premiering “Looking” on January 19, the series is a comedy-drama series about a group of gay-friend living in San Francisco. The groundbreaking series stars Jonathan Groff, Frankie J. Alvarez, and Murray Bartlett.
After Lifetime’s success with their book to TV adaptions of “Witches of East End,” they are taking another shot with an all-new series premiering on January 18 and based off the trailer it’s going to be good! “Flowers in the Attic” will be seen again in moving picture although in comparison to the 1987 movie version, Lifetime will not shy away from the novel’s most disturbing scene between Cathy and her brother Chris. The TV series is set to stick very close to V.C. Andrews’s iconic novel.
I am so looking to these top 5 TV shows, with a bit of comedy and a bit of drama, all five look like they will be break out series. What do you think about these new TV shows for 2014? Comment below and let us know!
