Every new streaming service comes with a wide range of great dramas that people can watch when they want to get caught up in the lives of fictional people. Even though Paramount+ is relatively new, it is not unfamiliar with this. It already has great programming, including some of the best dramas on television. Streaming is the best option to tide you over until the release of your favorite shows on the 2021 TV schedule.
NCIS and Star Trek have been on the air for decades and continue to draw loyal viewers, while Blue Bloods and The Good Wife have maintained a consistent viewership over the years. Paramount+ has a dramatic series for every taste. These are among the finest options available on the streaming platform.

The film “Guilty Party” has had a difficult time making it to theaters, but the challenges it has faced are entirely understandable. It was originally planned for Isla Fisher, who was also the show’s producer, to take the lead part in this dark comedy about a journalist who is trying to clear a lady suspected of killing her husband.
The plot centers on the woman’s struggle to clear her name. Fisher had to drop out of the production because of the COVID-19 epidemic, and Kate Beckinsale was cast in her place. Since then, however, everything has been able to come together successfully. “We are thrilled to add ‘Guilty Party’ to our growing comedy slate, which also includes ‘Why Women Kill,’ ‘No Activity,’ and the upcoming animated ‘Star Trek: Lower Decks,'” Julie McNamara, executive vice president and head of programming for CBS All Access, said. “We are thrilled to add ‘Guilty Party’ to our growing comedy slate.”
