Season One Television Council
Season One Television Council was launched in January 2018 as a spin-off of Chapter One Book Group.
The current schedule can be viewed below:
NewsRadio, Season 1
TV Selection #13
Set at WNYX, an AM news radio station in New York City, NewsRadio begins with the arrival of new news director, Dave Nelson (Dave Foley). Nelson’s level-headed attitude clashes with the eccentric personalities of WNYX’s owner and staff, and he struggles to keep the station running long enough to deliver the evening news. Praised for its fast-paced scripts and ensemble cast, NewsRadio’s combination of physical humor and sight gags with smart dialogue and absurd storylines quickly earned it a loyal audience.
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Season 1
TV Selection #14
This award-winning comedy-drama from the creator of Gilmore Girls follows Miriam “Midge” Maisel (Rachel Brosnahan), a young, upper middle-class Jewish housewife living in Manhattan in 1958. After her seemingly idyllic life is upended by the unexpected end of her marriage, Midge realizes she has a knack for standup comedy and embarks on a journey of self-discovery and reinvention as she begins to put her life back together. Praised for its balance of playfulness and poignancy, Amy Sherman-Palladino’s skill at writing dialogue and Brosnahan’s charming, engaging performance, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel became one of Amazon Video’s most successful pilots of all time.
