So, without further ado, read on to learn about our recommendations for the 10 finest, yet under-the-radar (kinda) shows you can binge this month!
Stay Close is another Harlan Coben adaptation that has proven to be even more fascinating than the others.
A person goes missing on the anniversary of Detective Broome's (James Nesbitt) lone cold case. Megan (Cush Jumbo), a former stripper with a dark past, and Ray (Richard Armitage), a journalist hunting for his missing fiancée, are drawn into the inquiry. In this wickedly intriguing whodunnit, secrets are exposed, bodies are buried, and terrible pasts are dredged out.

Maid follows Alex, played by Margaret Qualley, a single mother who abandons her violent boyfriend and her two-year-old kid to live in a shelter and work as a maid for wealthy clientele. Andie McDowell, Qualley's real-life mother, plays Alex's mother Paula, while the show also stars Nick Robinson, Billy Burke, and Anika Noni Rose. The limited series is based on Stephanie Land's memoir Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother's Will to Survive. Be warned: this is a tearjerker.

Sky Rojo (also known as Red Sky in English) is the latest project from the makers of the massively hit Netflix show Money Heist. Three sex workers (Verónica Sanchez, Lali Espósito, and Yany Prado) are on the run from their pimp (Asier Etxeandia) and his goons (Miguel ngel Silvestre and Enric Aucquer) in this series. Season 1 is made up of eight 25-minute episodes, and a second season in the same format has already been confirmed. There are car chases, sequins, and gunfights galore, making this a must-see for anyone who enjoyed the producers' previous series.
Dead To Me
A tragicomedy that twists and turns with the best of them, as polar opposite friends Jen and Judy struggle through life, united by grief. A brilliant blend of dark thrills and one-liners that will make you laugh out loud. Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini are both fantastic as the principal couple, while James Marsden's performance as Steve and, in the second season, Steve's twin brother is flawless. You literally won't be able to take your eyes off the series.
This Eddy delivered on its worldwide calibre promise. This is a gritty yet colorful bop around the Paris jazz scene, written by screenplay supremo Jack Thorne and directed by Damian Chazelle, Houda Benyamina, Lala Marrakchi, and Alan Poul.
Elliot, the struggling manager of a Parisian nightclub, is played by André Holland. However, his business partner owes some people money, making things much more difficult. Then Elliot's estranged daughter, Julie, appears. It's everything happening at once, yet this music-inspired series moves at its own pace, pausing for reflection and, of course, a few jam sessions.
The Last Dance
The Last Dance, a documentary about the Chicago Bulls' 1997/98 season, uses historical footage and interviews with Michael Jordan and some of his closest allies and rivals to tell the story of that fateful year. Despite the fact that it is about basketball, you don't have to be a huge lover of the sport to be captivated by this one-hour documentary.
The joint ESPN/Netflix production delves deeply at what makes one of the twentieth century's most iconic figures tick: feuds, fights with the front office, and family stories all play a role. Everything is presented in a way that allows you to learn as you go without being condescending. Furthermore, if you enjoy basketball, you may relax knowing that you're witnessing a secret aspect of one of the game's greatest dynasties. Hundreds of hours of previously unseen film were used to create The Last Dance, which presents a unique and multifaceted perspective on the guy once known as "Air."

When you hear the phrase "mockumentary," you might think of classics like This Is Spinal Tap or Best in Show. Both are intentionally over-the-top chuckle fests. American Vandal, on the other hand, is a completely different animal. A satirical docuseries that is played absolutely straight, it taps into the contemporary true crime trend and puts a new spin on it. The first season opens in the aftermath of a high school crime when 27 instructors discover that their cars have been destroyed by a student who enjoys spray paint and pornographic photos. No, I mean it. As if that wasn't crazy enough, season 2 chronicles a poop epidemic.
American Vandal functions in the same way that Making a Murderer became an addictive series about which everyone and their mother had an opinion. One high schooler assumes the role of documentarian and attempts to determine who is truly to blame. True crime has never been more engrossing!
Tuca & Bertie

A Netflix Original that flew under many people's radars. Tuca and Bertie is the creation of Lisa Hanawalt, one of the animators of Bojack Horseman, who ventures out to present a different story. Tuca and Bertie – a self-assured, carefree toucan and an anxious songbird – are voiced by Ali Wong and Tiffany Haddish. The two share an apartment building in Bird Town, a lush and bright metropolis straight out of a children's cartoon. Make no mistake though: Tuca and Bertie are not for children.
The idea of not watching a show because it was canceled early is, to put it mildly, absurd. While we only got one season of this absurdist comedy, that's no reason to pass it up: its strangeness is part of its attraction, enticing you in before showing how extremely smart it is. Rather from retreading the same ground as Bojack, it focuses on the women at its core, how they deal with sobriety, singledom, and employment in a world tailored toward men.
Judd Apatow returns to television with a charmingly loud, irreverent, and often rather lovely series about life and love in Los Angeles. The story begins when the kind-hearted Gus (Paul Rust) meets the outspoken Mickey (Gillian Jacobs) and the two begin hanging together. The series follows the duo as they test the boundaries of friendship and romance, with some completely insane stand-alone episodes thrown in for good measure. It's both hilarious and cringeworthy.
Love may seem like a million other concerts, but it has a burst of energy and enthusiasm that sets it apart from the crowd. Even after the pair keeps making mistakes, you can't help but like them and wish for them to figure out what they're doing. And, with Season 3 being the final season, this is a wonderful time to catch up with Gus and Mickey.
Dear White People
Dear White People, a film by Justin Simien, received positive reviews, prompting the production of a small-screen version. While there are some alterations due to the fact that it was recast, the core premise stays the same. It follows a diverse group of undergraduate students as they navigate Winchester University, a largely white Ivy League campus where racial issues are frequently thrown under the rug. Logan Browning plays a student who runs the Dear White People campus radio show.
Dear White People is a hot-button topic series that charges in full force to tackle some heavy issues. A parody of post-racial America, we're dropped at a college that hosts a blackface party, we see police brutality, racist trolls, and so on. It's also quite amusing, as it weaves a universal theme of carving one's own unique path.
