The revolution is being televised after all.
On streaming platforms, a rebellion against powerful political, social and cultural forces is growing stronger than ever.
Netflx, Hulu and other platforms are also challenging the old rules of the casting game and increasing the visibility of communities vastly underrepresented on screen.

On this week’s episode, The Reel explores the shows that have sprung forth from the cracks where network executives have feared to tread.
Later on, Olsen is back to dive deeper into “Big Little Lies.” The HBO hit was originally envisioned as a one-off, single-season series, but fans demanded more from the Monterey Five.
