Miriam Capper joins CJ to review two new television series, which are ‘blowing up’ on Foxtel right now – The Feud and Big Little Lies.
The Feud ‘tells the tale of the legendary rivalry between Joan Crawford (Jessica Lange) and Bette Davis (Susan Sarandon), which occurred while filming the Academy Award®-nominated thriller What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?. The series explores how these screen icons endured ageism, sexism, and misogyny while struggling to hang on to success and fame in the twilight of their careers.

Big Little Lies is based on the best-selling novel by Australian author Liane Moriarty and follows three women dealing with careers, motherhood and fundraisers. However, lurking beneath the glossy surface of their wealthy beach community lies something much more sinister: when gossip leads to murder, everyone has a finger to point. From the director of Wild and Dallas Buyers Club and written and executive produced by David E. Kelley, this subversive, darkly comedic drama stars Academy Award Winners Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon and actress Shailene Woodley.’ (www.foxtel.com.au/watch/big-little-lies.html).
