Kate Winslet’s ‘Mare of Easttown’ shakes you from inside because of its harrowing murder mystery. Also, writer-creator Brad Ingelsby has taken inspiration from his own life in Pennsylvania to showcase a dilapidated town afflicted by drug abuse, poverty, and crime.

The seven-part series is about a detective who is trying to hold the town, her family, and herself together. So, after completing ‘Mare of Easttown’, if you are looking for more such content on Over the Top (OTT) platforms, here are a few suggestions as listed by Film Companion.

Sharp Objects (2018)

Instead of a detective that’s investigating a crime, we have a reporter in this series. She’s also an alcoholic, and a daughter that is often on the receiving end of her mother’s aggression. Just like the ‘Mare of Easttown’, this miniseries rarely shifts focus from its protagonist Camille (Amy Adams). At the same time, it never loses sight of its central mystery either.

Unbelievable (2019)

Toni Collette in ‘Unbelievable’ is truly unbelievable . In the show, we have two female detectives in search of a serial rapist. Concurrently, we are also allowed a look into the minds of the victims and survivors. This true crime miniseries, mostly, is about trauma and the subsequent burden of guilt that one carries.

Top of the Lake (2013-2017)

In one of her New Yorker essays, Pulitzer-winning critic Emily Nussbaum called this show a “moody, pastoral rape-and-murder drama.” And that is precisely what it is — instead of judging or pitying the characters or their circumstances, we are shown how people treat sex crimes, as if they are an ephemeral nightmare that will end once you wake up.

Twin Peaks (1990-1991)

Mare of Easttown is sublime television not just because of the volume of subjects it masterfully grapples with, but also because of its portrayal of the idiosyncratic. It sprinkles wry humour throughout, adding moments of levity when you least expect it. David Lynch’s Twin Peaks benefits from a similar treatment.

Defending Jacob (2020)

This one is a bit different, not only in terms of its content but also quality. Yes, its episodic length can be fairly plodding and frustrating. However, it’s the performances and unusual narrative that help you overlook the show’s missteps. Chris Evans plays an assistant DA whose 14-year-old son is accused of murdering his classmate.
