Based on the BBC’s BAFTA-winning crime anthology, each episode of Accused will follow a new criminal case. Every episode will be told from the defendant's point of view, without telling us what they've been accused of or how they ended up on trial. Over the course of the season, viewers will discover how an ordinary person can get caught up in an extraordinary situation, ultimately revealing how one wrong turn leads to another, until it’s too late to turn back.

Starring: Shawn Doyle, Wendell Pierce, Neil Whitely, Abigail Breslin, Rachel Bilson, Rhea Perlman, Margo Martindale, Molly Parker, Jill Hennessy, Jack Davenport, Whitney Cummings, Oakes Fegley, Robert Wisdom, Aisha Dee, and more

17.Kaleidoscope

Screenshot from "Kaleidoscope"

Kaleidoscope follows a crew of masterful thieves and their attempt to crack a seemingly unbreakable vault for the biggest payday in history. Guarded by the world’s most powerful corporate security team, and with law enforcement on the case, every episode reveals a piece of an elaborate puzzle of corruption, greed, vengeance, scheming, loyalties, and betrayals. Loosely inspired by the real-life story where $70 billion in bonds went missing in downtown Manhattan during Hurricane Sandy, Kaleidoscope spans from 24 years before the heist to 6 months after. Also, what's really cool about this show is that its non-linear approach to storytelling builds suspense uniquely, by giving viewers different watching experiences. So, some members may start with certain episodes (like “Yellow or “Green”), then move deeper into their own personal viewing order with varying episodes (“Blue” or “Violet” or “Orange,” followed by “Red” or “Pink”) until the epic “White: The Heist” story finale. Bottom line: You'll see all the episodes eventually, just not in the same order as, say, your cousin, your boss, or your best friend.

Starring: Giancarlo Esposito, Rufus Sewell, Paz Vega, Rosaline Elbay, Jai Courtney, Tati Gabrielle, Peter Mark Kendall, and more
