If you're a fan of dramas like Big Little Lies and the adaptation Nine Perfect Strangers, you'll love the HBO wellness whodunnit The White Lotus, set at an Hawaiian resort.


The comedy-drama has received rave reviews (you can read our breakdown of how The White Lotus invents the "Aloha Christie" genre), with comparisons to Agatha Christie and glossy murder-mystery The Undoing.

The satirical series offers plenty of laughs, with big-hitting comedy talent among the cast (including American Pie star Jennifer Coolidge, whose performance is already receiving Emmys buzz), and follows a dysfunctional group of guests who arrive at the resort.

The privileged American holidaymakers are contrasted with the hard-working hotel employees, and the show takes a biting, satirical look at racial and economic divides.
