Top 20 New Shows of 2020: #17

My annual TV Awards, the AFT Television Awards, are given out during the summer. It’s always nice to check in midway through the television season to reflect back on all the calendar year introduced us to. As 2020 closes out and 2021 begins, here’s a look back at the best new shows of the year.

#17: Little Fires Everywhere
This limited series assembled an extraordinarily talented cast led by Kerry Washington and Reese Witherspoon to confront racism in a suburban community in the 1990s. It seemed to get lost in the shuffle of other high-profile dramas in the first half of the year, but it was both a riveting watch and a highly thought-provoking one that probed the way people judge each other and feel bound to expectations. Watch it now on Hulu. 

Best Episode: “The Spider Web”
