13 best new shows of 2020, so far from 'Hillary' to 'Plot'

It’s only February, but dozens of new TV shows are already vying for  your attention. 

In an era with so many streaming services (get ready for HBO Max and Peacock soon) churning out series alongside traditional broadcast and cable networks, the never-ending onslaught of new programs can be overwhelming. But even though we’re only two months into the year, the cavalcade of new TV in 2020 brings a few gems worth adding to your queues if you haven’t caught them yet.

From a network musical comedy to the return of Jean-Luc Picard to two Apple TV Plus shows you probably didn’t know existed, these are the 13 best new series to debut since Jan. 1:

13. ‘Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist’ (NBC) 

The most ambitious series to hit broadcast TV so far this season, “Zoey” is a musical comedy about a San Francisco coder (Jane Levy) who starts to hear other people’s thoughts through music after an MRI mishap. Kind of a cross between “Joan of Arcadia” and “Glee,” the upbeat (in rhythm and emotion) series has a talented cast of singers belting their hearts out, although there’s room for the characters and story to deepen as the series goes on.

12. ‘The Plot Against America’ (HBO) 

The miniseries is from David Simon (“The Wire,” “The Deuce”), who adapted  Philip Roth’s alternate history novel about an America where Charles Lindbergh wins the presidential election of 1940. With Lindbergh comes fascism, anti-Semitism and a friendship with Adolf Hitler, turning 1950s America into a scary dystopia. Starring Zoe Kazan, Winona Ryder and John Turturro, the series is a smartly acted if imperfect parable, with plenty of parallels to 2020
