Like your TV with strong women characters? With Game of thrones and The good wife evolving the regular women characters on our TV space, there are a few lesser known TV series which are doing the same but you might not be watching them. We bring you 5 TV shows, spanning a range of genres, that put women in the spotlight to differing degrees. The common ground for these shows is that they all revolve around some real powerful women characters and keep you intrigued.
How to get away with murder
Engaging multi-faceted drama with a female super hero angle. This is Marvel’s first female led superhero TV series and its done right. The depiction of a normal life or one that is close to it, touch of humanity and no form fitting spandex costume are definitely the high notes.
Being Mary Jane
Mary Jane the lead in the show is battling life on all fronts – career, family, romance and is thematically ambitious. You can expect a lot of unleashing of vulnerabilities and retrospect as a viewer.
The lead character Stella Gibson has depths varying from insanely static to deeply expressive. The British crime drama is spun around a realistic tale of serial killer and an icy, feminist and sadly accurate detective.
The show has an ensemble comedy mettle and the lead Jessica Day (played by Zooey Deschanel) is absolutely phenomenal. Show’s courageous and positive attitude towards life just makes it an apt doze of happiness you should include in your watch list.
