NPR TV critic Eric Deggans says there is an abundance of great programming on television right now, including four shows that are going under the radar. He joins Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson with details on those programs.

Underrated TV Show Picks From Eric Deggans

  1. Peaky Blinders“: Deggans calls this period drama on BBC Two “amazing.” It’s about a gangster family in Britain after World War I. The show is available on Netflix for American audiences.
  2. Episodes“: This Showtime satire is “really well done,” Deggans says. It’s about making a TV comedy in Hollywood and stars Matt LaBlanc, who’s best known for “Friends.”
  3. Being Mary Jane“: Deggans loves this BET series because of the how the writers find ways to portray issues confronting African-Americans.
  4. Togetherness“: This HBO show finds a way to be different from other romantic comedies out there.
