Series that premiere in January to keep an eye on 👀
Day 04 – The Lying Life of Adults – After the success of The Lost Daughter (film nominated for three Oscar 2021 categories), Netflix decided to bet on another adaptation of Elena Ferrante. The chosen one is The Lying Life of Adultsa title that will be released as a series of six episodes (at least in this first season) on the streaming service.
Despite not having read this book by the author, her other works and adaptations (see The Genius Friend on HBO Max!) made a big impression on me. And, by all indications, it will be no different this time.
As in other works by Ferrante, the plot takes place in Naples, and its protagonist is an upper-middle-class young woman named Giovanna. After hearing her parents say that she is becoming her “monstrous aunt”, the girl decides to leave the house and look for her relative, trying to find out what secrets the mysterious figure hides and what that says about her own personality.
Day 19 – That ’90s Show – One of the most anticipated sitcoms of 2023, That ’90s Show is nothing less than a spin-off of That ’70s Show (yes, the classic comedy series with Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher).
Starring the children of the former protagonists of the show, it repeats the same style of narrative and recording of the original plot, and promises to be a full plate for fans of the production, which is currently not available on any streaming platform.
This time set in the 90s, the story begins when Leia goes to the city of Point Place to visit her grandparents (the wonderful Debra Jo Rupp and Kurtwood Smithem, who are back in their old roles). Over the course of the summer, the girl makes friends with some local teenagers, who, like the old gang, adopt the family basement as their official HQ.
Coming Soon – Every Day, Same Night – Fictional miniseries, Todo Dia a Mesma Noite tells the story of one of the greatest Brazilian tragedies: the fire that occurred in 2013 at the Kiss nightclub, a concert hall in the city of Santa Maria, Rio Grande do Sul.
Based on the work of Daniela Arbex, the production will feature five episodes, responsible for portraying the terrible event that took the lives of 242 young people and the fight for justice fought until today by the parents of the victims and survivors.

Day 06 – The Pale Blue Eye – Among the feature films coming to streaming this month, it is worth keeping an eye on The Pale Blue Eyefilm based on the book of the same name.
Suspense starring Christian Bale, the title takes place in 1830 and has as its protagonist a detective who begins to investigate a series of murders that occurred at the United States Military Academy. To help him in this mission, he has the support of a young man named Edgar Allan Poe.
With a trailer that made me very curious, especially for its gothic aesthetic and air of constant tension, the film lands on the 2nd on the platform.
