A dark and gripping debut crime thriller, The Fields immerses you in small-town Iowa. When police investigator Sergeant Riley Fisher arrives on the scene of an already horrific crime, she discovers the victim was a childhood friend connected to a dark past she thought she’d left behind. The investigation grows complicated as more victims are found. Drawn deeper in, Riley soon discovers implications far beyond her Midwest town.

The Afterparty on Apple TV+: Billed as a nod to Agatha Christie, but with a twist! So it’s a straight murder mystery–during a 15-year high school reunion someone is murdered–but each episode is told with a twist: a different genre. So you’ll get a musical episode, a thriller, a rom-com etc. And it has a great cast that includes Tiffany Haddish, Ilana Glazer, and Zoë Chao. Here’s the trailer.
