Switzer Life: Weekend isolation entertainment

Sophia Katsinas
30 May 2020

Looking for new inspiration in isolation this weekend? Here are some entertainment suggestions from the Switzer team.

TV Shows


From the same producer who brought us the hits ‘Narcos’ and ‘Scandal’, Jason George has now produced the Belgian drama, ‘Into the Night’ on Netflix.

The concept of the show has an apocalyptic atmosphere, after a comic disaster strikes the earth and passengers on an overnight flight are on a time-ticking expedition to escape the suns deathly rays.

Though, the six-part series becomes a “survival of the fittest” hunt as George explains, “the greatest threat isn’t the sun, but surviving each other”.

NETFLIX: Hollywood

Another new series, with a popular cast, explores the Golden Age of cinema in the post-World War II era.

The story of each ambitious character, motivated to “make it in Hollywood” offers a unique glimpse into the realities, challenges and power struggles of the world of cinema, many of which are still confrontingly apparent today.

An all-star cast, including Darren Criss, Laura Harrier, Joe Mantello, Holland Taylor and Jim Parsons give us a glimpse into the life of Hollywood in the romanticised post-war era.
