"Severance" is a sci-fi thriller created by Dan Erickson and executive produced by Ben Stiller. The series revolves around a mysterious company named Lumon Industries, whose employees cannot recall any memories about their personal lives while they are at work. Likewise, once the employees leave the office, they cannot remember anything about the workplace. The series has been renewed for a second season.
"Black Bird" is a limited drama series created by Dennis Lehane. When a policeman's son is sentenced to 10 years in a minimum-security prison, he is offered an opportunity for a commuted sentence with no conditions by authorities in exchange for entering a maximum-security prison and befriending a suspected serial killer to get him to confess.
Apple TV+ has been nominated for Golden Globe awards in the past, including for series "Ted Lasso" and "The Morning Show." In both 2021 and 2022, "Ted Lasso" star Jason Sudeikis won a Golden Globe award for Best Television Actor in a Musical or a Comedy.

Severance, on the other hand, was about as interesting a series as I have seen. For anyone who has ever spent any time working in a corporation, the story is pretty amazing. The cinematography is easily some of the best in '22. If you haven't seen either, I highly recommend Severance. Looking forward to s2.
