Various stories, without great leaps, for this serial July. The most anticipated products will be seen in the autumn, for now some new genre narratives and a couple of “dramas”.

The terminal list

Amazon Prime Video, July 1

Adapted from Jack Carr’s novel of the same name, this action series follows the story of Captain James Reece (Chris Pratt), a member of the Navy Seals and a true legend for his exploits in Afghanistan. Reece receives a tip about the possible hiding place of a terrorist in Syria: he leads his platoon decisively but the operation turns out to be an ambush and the vast majority of his men are killed. Back home, however, James has very confused memories of the operation, which diverge from those of his superiors. This is enough to generate in him the purest desire for revenge that will lead him to pursue his personal revenge with ruthless precision.

Lady Fox

Sky Investigation, July 1

This British series – detective drama genre – is set almost entirely between Umbria and Lazio, starring Sylvia Fox, a former MI6 spy who travels to Italy for the wedding of her niece. However, when the groom disappears, Sylvia does not resist the call of the crime and involves herself in several cases that transform her vacation period into an eventful succession of investigations and investigations in the field. The series, played by Emilia Fox, although belonging to the crime genre, still maintains a fairly light and not too dark tone. A story, for the moment quite compact and with a few episodes, which has the possibility of being extended and replicated over several seasons.

Nurses

Sky Series, July 4th

In medical drama, comes this series that follows the stories of five new nurses at St Mary’s hospital in Toronto. The kids will have to face different challenges, deal with their own temperament and different desires and expectations, endure the tensions of a difficult job in which collaboration is vital to take the day home. A choral story – a hospital drama par excellence – which brings together highly dramatic situations with moments of pathos and emotion.

Black bird

Apple tv +, July 8

Psychological thriller in six episodes inspired by real events that tells the story of Jimmy Keene (Taron Egerton), drug dealer sentenced to ten years who is proposed to obtain parole in exchange for a favor to the police: he will have to agree to be locked up in a maximum security prison and to befriend suspected serial killer Larry Hall (Paul Walter Hauser) to obtain a confession about where the man buried the bodies of several murdered girls. The series is based on the book “In with the davil: a fallen hero, a serial killer and a dangerous bargain for redampion” by James Keene and Hillel Levin. A thriller full of suspense and well packaged, as Apple has always made us accustomed to.

The girl from Plainville

Starzplay, July 10

Drama series inspired by a real story that tells of the suicide of Conrad Roy, a seventeen-year-old boy who took his own life in 2014 in a small town in Massachusetts, and how his friend Michelle Carter (the girl of Plainville which gives the series its title). The investigating detective realizes that, with the messages and behaviors that Michelle (played by Elle Fanning) has taken towards Conrad, she may have led him to that extreme gesture. A very dark drama that deals with a hard and extreme story and which, at a quick glance, does not seem to have so much narrative material to support an eight-episode format.

Santa Evita

Disney +, July 26

Argentine TV series that follows the personal story of Evita Peron and in particular the story linked to her embalmed remains, which were hidden for over sixteen years after the coup in 1955 that overthrew the then president Juan Domingo Peron. Before her husband’s death, Evita had become a very influential woman in her country, a true symbol against the regime, and the story linked to the non-burial of her body haunted the Argentine political scene for several decades.

In the name of heaven

Disney +, July 27

Salt Lake Valley, Utah. In 1984 Brenda Wright Lafferty (Daisy Edgar-Jones) and her fifteen-month-old baby girl are killed. Detective Jeb Pyre (Andrew Garfield) investigates the case and discovers the disturbing connections between the murder of the two victims and the more rigid dictates of the Mormon religion. Jeb will be led to question his personal certainties and his belonging to a creed that manifests many shadows and ambiguities. The series produced by FX for Hulu, presents itself as a well-orchestrated story and with different levels of reading. Also in this case, it is the adaptation of a book of the same name written by Jon Krakauer and published in Italy by Mondadori.

Uncoupled

Netflix, July 29

New comedy by Neil Patrick Harris in which the actor plays Michael, left by her husband after seventeen years of marriage. The man then finds himself in New York as an over forty year old and gay-single and must try to find out, return to the market and … survive. An escape story, all entrusted to (hopefully) the brilliance of writing. A disengaged and light series, in which the excellent urban setting and quality interior design seem (at least) guaranteed.
