If you like The Good Wife... Try Suits (airing now)
Consider it legal ease. Whether on CBS or USA, whether in or out of the courtroom, these dramas are anything but objectionable.
If you like Downton Abbey... Try Vicious (airing now)
Two PBS imports with deliciously caustic humor. Consider Vicious‘s septuagenarian life partners Freddie (Ian McKellen) and Stuart (Derek Jacobi) double the Dowager, double the fun. (Meta-bonus: Freddie auditions for Downton in one episode.)
If you like American Horror Story: Coven... Try Witches of East End (premieres July 6)
Need a witch fix? Lifetime’s East End has soapy twists and turns just as crafty as Ryan Murphy’s N’Awlins-set Coven.
If you like Orphan Black... Try Finding Carter (debuts July 8)
BBC America’s cult hit and the new MTV original both center on heroines whose identities have been blown apart, teeing up an investigation and a re-examination of the idea of what family means.
If you like Parks and Recreation... Try Welcome to Sweden (debuts July 10)
Amy Poehler fans can self-medicate for Knope withdrawal with this fish-out-of-water emigration comedy co-executive produced by Poehler and her brother Greg. You don’t even have to change the dial, as Sweden also airs on the Peacock.
If you like Scandal... Try Ray Donovan (premieres July 13)
From Shondaland to La La Land, from ABC to Showtime, Olivia Pope and Ray Donovan are fixers with daddy issues—and some seriously binge-worthy storylines.
If you like The Walking Dead... Try The Strain (premieres July 13)
Zombies, vampires, and scares, oh my! Both based on super-successful literary properties, both drawing from the minds of geek icons (Robert Kirkman for Dead, Guillermo del Toro for Strain), AMC and FX’s pitch-dark thrillers have plenty in common.
If you like Mad Men... Try Masters of Sex (premieres July 13)
Sex, style, smart scripts, and superb acting. What’s not to like about AMC and Showtime’s mid-century dramas?
If you like The Mindy Project... Try The Hotwives of Orlando (debuts July 15)
Why settle for one funny lady when you can have six? Hulu’s Real Housewives send-up is as stacked with cameos as Mindy and happens to star Mindy Kaling’s former Office costar Angela Kinsey.
If you like Modern Family... Try Married (debuts July 17)
Though the tone of Judy Greer and Nat Faxon’s FX comedy isn’t quite as warm-and-fuzzy as ABC’s hitcom, both series put the fun in ”dysfunctional family.”
