Series #1: Severance
The series follows Mark, a man who has recently been promoted to lead his department at a company called Lumon Industries. One of his first tasks is to train Helly, who has just been hired to replace his old colleague. The nature of the work is so secret that the company has asked him and every employee to undergo a surgical procedure. The operation will separate his consciousness into two parts. "Innie", where the person will not know who is outside the office, and "Outtie", where the person will never be able to know privately what is going on in the office.
What we see are two versions of Mark, one is a grieving widower struggling to find his identity outside of work. On the other hand, an experienced employee, completely dedicated to the company and to his professional responsibilities.
Series #2: Waco
In February 1993, the eyes of the world turned to Mount Carmel, a small religious community outside of Waco, Texas. The government's Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) has just completed a massive operation and raid on David Koresh and his followers. After the largest shootout in US police history, four ATF agents and six civilians were killed and dozens more injured. After the failed ATF operation, the case passed into the hands of the FBI, where they laid siege to the ranch for 51 days. A siege that ended with a new invasion operation with the use of tear gas, which was supposed to force the members of the organization to come out.
But during the operation, a large fire broke out at the Mount Carmel Center, resulting in the death of 76 members of the organization, including its leader David Koresh.
Series #3: Black Bird
It is a series inspired by real events. When the pride of the high school football team, the son of a police officer and convicted drug dealer Jimmy Keene is sentenced to 10 years in prison, he is given two options. Entering a maximum security prison with mentally disturbed inmates and befriending suspected serial killer Larry Hall. Otherwise, he should stay where he is and serve his entire sentence without the possibility of parole. Keene quickly realizes that his only way out is to confess and discover where the bodies of several young girls are buried. But is this killer telling the truth?
Or is it just another story from a serial liar? This dramatic and gripping story subverts the crime drama genre by enlisting the help of people behind bars to solve its mysteries.

Adam Sandler plays the role of a scout for the Philadelphia 76ers, who literally travels the entire planet to find talented players, suitable for the team. From the first minutes of the film, through a spontaneous montage, we realize three things about his character. First, the loneliness he experiences doing the specific job.
