These are the TV shows coming out this week that you really don’t want to miss

From Apple TV’s anticipated WeCrashed series with Anne Hathaway to Netflix’s latest wild documentary Bad Vegan, these are the unmissable shows to watch this week. 

Since the beginning of 2022, we really have been treated to some truly stellar television, haven’t we?

As well as a new series of BBC’s Killing Eve, we’ve had true crime documentaries, the all-encompassing drama of Euphoria and this week is yet another testament to staying in, it seems.

It’s the week where we finally get to see the drama of WeWork unfold on the small screen – with the help of Jared Leto and Anne Hathaway – and we also get another instalment of gritty TV series Top Boy.

Whatever you’re in the mood for this week, the chances are that we’ll have you covered. So sit back, scroll and get ready to add these picks to your watchlist now. 

WeCrashed 

The much anticipated Apple TV+ series goes deep beneath the surface of lauded co-working company WeWork in a similar way to the Wondery podcast – but with all the twists, turns and tense moments we love of a small-screen drama.

We didn’t realise quite how great Hathaway and Leto would be in the leading roles, but if the trailer for the series is anything to go by, their portrayal of brash company founder Adam Neumann and his wife, Rebekah, is rather uncanny.

As the synopsis reads: “Inspired by actual events – and the love story at the centre of it all. WeWork grew from a single co-working space into a global brand worth $47 billion in under a decade. Then, in just 14 days, it lost $40 billion. What happened?”

The first three episodes of WeCrashed will be available to stream on Apple TV+ on 18 March, with new episodes released weekly every Friday thereafter.

Bad Vegan: Fame. Fraud. Fugitives 

Just as we’ve come down from the media frenzy of The Tinder Swindler, Netflix is bringing us an even wilder true crime documentary. This time, with a restaurant twist.

The new four-part documentary comes from Chris Smith, the executive producer of Tiger King and director of Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened. It will explore how Sarma Melngailis went from being the lauded pioneer of modern vegan cuisine to being known as the ‘vegan fugitive’.

It’s set to be a tale of deception, scandal, immortality (yes, you read that right) and one fateful Domino’s pizza order.

Bad Vegan will be available to stream on Netflix on Wednesday 16 March.

Top Boy 

Finally, the new series of Top Boy is here and we couldn’t be more excited. As well as loyalty being the name of the game – now more than ever – it also seems like unlikely collaborations will also be a main draw of the upcoming series.

The new episodes will also see fashion model Adwoa Aboah make her acting debut on the show and a host of familiar faces (like Little Simz, Ashley Walters, Kano) returning for what is set to be another on the edge-of-your-seat drama.

Top Boy will be available to stream on Netflix on Friday 18 March.

Computer Says No

Computer Says No will air on BBC Three this Wednesday.

BBC Three has surpassed expectations of late and cemented itself as the place to go for hard-hitting documentaries and thought-provoking dramas.

Coming to the channel this week is yet another example of that. In this new documentary, we go behind the technological biases of algorithm-based hiring processes. As more companies opt for automated systems to feed them new hires and prospective candidates, this documentary investigates the inaccuracies of certain software.

BBC journalist and former recruiter Daniel Henry even explores how race, gender and emotion can be misinterpreted by some facial analysis technology. While it sounds otherworldly, we know this will be one of the most important watches of the week. 

Computer Says No will air on BBC Three on Wednesday 16 March at 8pm.

Young, Famous And African 

If you’re looking for a hit of guilty pleasure TV, we know this will likely be the pick for you. Netflix’s latest reality show follows young media stars who work, play, flirt and feud in Johannesburg, South Africa.

It’s a welcome (and glitzy) turn away from majorly European reality shows and lifts the lid on a part of the world that isn’t often seen in mainstream reality TV. We can’t wait.

Young, Famous And African is available to stream on Netflix on Friday 18 March.

The Witchfinder  

This brand new comedy from the writers of Alan Partridge sees a failing witchfinder (Tim Key) transporting a suspected witch (Daisy May Cooper) across 1640s East Anglia to a trial that could change his fortunes forever.

But his captive is the worst possible travel companion: an inquisitive, uncouth woman whose ability to prick his pomposity and ask uncomfortable questions turns a straightforward journey into a life-changing ordeal.

If you didn’t catch the first episode, it’s available to watch on BBC iPlayer with the second episode airing on BBC Two this week.

The Witchfinder episode 2 will air on BBC Two on 15 March at 10pm.
