WWT Talks TV: Love Victor, Perry Mason, and Marcella
Love, Victor (Hulu)
“Love, Victor” is set in the world of the groundbreaking movie, “Love, Simon,” which was inspired by Becky Albertalli’s acclaimed young adult novel, “Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda,” about a closeted gay teenager who is forced to come out after being blackmailed. The series stars Michael Cimino as Victor, who, like Simon, is on his own journey of self-discovery. Facing challenges at home, navigating the ups and downs of a new high school and exploring his sexual orientation, Victor reaches out to Simon when things become too difficult.
Perry Mason (HBO)
Evangelical preacher Sister Alice offers the Dodsons the church’s full moral and financial support, much to her mother Birdy’s dismay; during a routine domestic intervention, beat cop Paul Drake is rerouted to a gruesome crime scene.
Acclaimed writer Hans Rosenfeldt continues his first British drama following the international success of the Swedish/Danish series “The Bridge.” Anna Friel stars in the lead role of Marcella Backland, a British police detective working in contemporary London. Set in Rosenfeldt’s unique style of “Nordic noir,” the body of a missing child is discovered inside a wall and a task force is assembled to catch the killer. A complex set of characters from all walks of life and interweaving storylines takes viewers on a dark and emotional journey with turns at every corner.
