August TV Premieres: 17 New Shows to Watch This Month

TV production may be mostly paused with Hollywood’s top talent on strike, but any lull in new programming hasn’t caught up yet. August brings with it more than a plentiful offering of new TV shows, from international dramas and reality to gripping docuseries and expansions of the “Star Wars” and “Adventure Time” universes. Netflix and A&E will debut two different yet complementary specials about hip hop, one focusing on its female influences and the other on items integral to music history. Apple dials into the engrossing world of automotive CEO Carlos Ghosn, while HBO takes a deep dive on the American telemarketing industry. On the feel-good front, Netflix reality boasts both the New Zealand dating series “Down For Love” and the return of “Nailed It” with an all-time baking challenge.

In July, IndieWire’s TV team assembled our best of the year so far — best shows, best new shows, and best episodes, and each month we’ve put together a list of brand-new shows to check out (January, FebruaryMarchAprilMay, June, and July). The list spans networks, genres, and languages, and though returning shows aren’t listed, keep an eye out for our coverage. It might be the last you hear about some of these shows from us, but the first taste of a shared viewing experience. If you want to look further ahead, our Most Anticipated TV of 2023 has a little of everything through the end of the year — but those dates could change as the strike continues to affect production.

Here are 17 new TV shows premiering in August 2023.
