Another must-watch series in 2021 is The Power,  a timely 10-part  global thriller based on the international bestselling novel of the same name.

Leslie Mann, Auli’i Cravalho, Tim Robbins, John Leguizamo, Eddie Marsan and Daniela Vega leade an all-star cast.

The world of The Power is our world, but for one twist of nature. Suddenly, and without warning, all teenage girls in the world develop the power to electrocute people at will.
