Hailing from Brazil, 3% is based in the dystopian times. The plot of the series is inspired by The Hunger Games where 3% of the population that proves to be fit will survive and have a chance at an improved life.

2. The Break
From Belgium, this crime thriller is inspired by True Detective and The Killing. A schlubby detective moves back into his hometown and learns that a young football player has been murdered. Just like any murder-suspense story, the protagonist has his ‘own’ way of unravelling the mystery while defying all odds.
3. Call My Agent
Imagine a French version of The Entourage but confronting horrible realities of the corporate life! Call My Agent addresses trivial but important topics of the corporate culture like the gender pay gap, sexism, and ageism. All of this is tightly parcelled into a comedy-drama series.
The German version of Stranger Things comes alive with Dark. Although the traditional set-up has remained the same with supernatural characters, eerie and foggy scenes, the storyline is definitely ‘dark’ and not meant for the weak hearts.
Very similar to Bad Teacher, Rita’s is a comedy series in which the protagonist actually cares about the welfare of her students, but deals with problems in a not-so-traditional approach. Although the plot is similar to the American movie, while watching the show, one would discover how the plot thickens to include other storylines involving complex characters.

A scene straight out of a post-apocalyptic world, The Rain is a Danish show based on two siblings that emerge out of a hidden bunker 6 years after a virus carried by the rain wiped out everyone in Scandinavia. They join a group of other survivors and get on with the dangers of the new world.
9. The Hook Up Plan
