What is it? Co-starring The Good Wife's Julianna Margulies, and based on Sarai Walker's 2015 novel of the same name, this darkly comic drama follows Plum Kettle - a ghost-writer for the editor of one of New York's biggest fashion magazines. Expect a scathing, contemporary slant on the whole Devil Wears Prada equation; with themes revolving around misogyny, self-image, and the superficial media world.

Cloak and Dagger

What is it? Netflix has had Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and more. Now Amazon gets its very own Marvel series, revolving around two super-powered teenagers: Tandy and Tyrone. From very different backgrounds, but with a shared emotional past, they team-up in a story that looks to have all the obligatory danger and detective elements.

What is it? Billy Bob Thornton returns for a second outing of the acclaimed, murky legal drama series. This time, Thornton's jaded protagonist and his team get drawn into a conspiracy when they start looking deeper into what appeared to be an open-and-shut murder investigation. Expect fresh corruption, twists and turns.

Preacher (Season 3)

What is it? Entertaining, bizarro-fantasy drama about a grizzled, superpowered preacher taking on the forces of darkness with his wild girlfriend and vampire pal. Following on from season two's chaotic New Orleans jaunt, Dominic Cooper's anti-hero gets fresh intrigue in the shape of that old chestnut: "a mysterious figure from his past". Hellish fun awaits.
