Dollface

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Hulu

Series Debut
Everyone has experienced a friend ditching them as soon as they get into a long-term relationship. But what happens when that relationship ends and the friend realizes that they let all of their friendships expire? That’s exactly what the new high-concept comedy Dollface seeks to explore when a young woman named Jules (Kat Dennings) is dumped by her longtime boyfriend and needs to re-enter the world of women, rekindling all the female friendships she left behind. This pitch-perfect show blends reality with fantasy in creative ways as Jules’ imagination runs wild while she learns how to cope with her new life. But it’s the way the Hulu series explores and subverts cliché tropes of female friendships where it truly shines. Smart, bold, and unapologetically real, Dollface will make you laugh and immediately want to call up your best friends. —Sydney Bucksbaum

Klaus

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Netflix

There have been origin stories for Santa Claus before (perennial Rankin-Bass favorite Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town, for instance), but Netflix’s Klaus offers a fresh — and visually stunning — take. When hapless postman Jesper (Jason Schwartzman) stumbles upon Klaus (J.K. Simmons), a mysterious carpenter with a stockpile of handmade toys, the two form an unlikely partnership to deliver the toys to children. “He’s certainly not the cuddly St. Nick that people see when they go to Macy’s when we first meet him,” Simmons, who was a mall Santa one year when he was “fresh out of college,” told EW of his take on Kris Kringle. “Part of what was interesting and challenging and fun was that these characters go on a journey and Klaus really starts in a dark, unhappy place. He’s not jolly when we first meet him and it takes a lot of relentless cajoling to bring him out of himself.” Santa Claus, a Grinch? Color us intrigued. —Tyler Aquilina

The Morning Show

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Apple TV+

A new status quo is being established on The Morning Show. Picking up in the aftermath of Bradley’s (Reese Witherspoon) intense interview with one of Mitch’s victims, the drama’s fifth episode explores how everyone is adjusting to this new world now that the dust has started settling and as a forthcoming New York Times exposé looms over them. “People begin to observe where they are in this new power structure, and they then have to occupy those powerful spaces,” says star Billy Crudup, who plays network executive Cory Ellison. “It becomes quite dramatic. So, the expression of then how the power is wielded amongst those who are newly adopting it and those who are observing that becomes this rather sophisticated chess game amongst entertainment. So you get the benefit of watching entertaining people behave in extraordinary ways.” More specifically, you can expect Crudup’s Cory to perform a musical number with Jennifer Aniston’s Alex. —Chancellor Agard
