It is one of the most frequently asked questions, in these weeks: what are you doing on New Year's Eve? It may be a good idea to organize a dinner at home and then wait for midnight watching (or re-watching) a few episodes of a good TV series. On Netflix, Prime Video, Disney+ and so on there are so many available, and even if you want to narrow the field only to Italian productions the offer remains vast. Those who haven't seen it yet can catch up on the first season of the docuseries The Ferragnez, on Prime Video, or Strappare lungo i bordi, the Netflix series by Zerocalcare. Let's see some of the other options available.

Astrological Guide for Broken Hearts

If you want to spend the night between December 31 and January 1 between laughter and lightness, the right choice is the TV series Astrological Guide for Broken Hearts, released in October 2021 on Netflix. Conceived by Bindu De Stoppani, with Claudia Gusmano and Michele Rosiello, and produced by Italian International Film, the series is based on the novel of the same name by Silvia Zucca.

The plot, set in Turin, recounts the vicissitudes of Alice, a thirty-something single woman struggling with an unsatisfying job in a small television network, old loves, new flames and a self-styled astrology guru. A second season is expected.

Vita da Carlo

They will spend New Year's Eve in joy those who choose to watch the TV series Vita da Carlo, distributed by Amazon Prime Video in November 2021. The ten episodes, each lasting 30 minutes and which will probably be followed by a second season, have actor and director Carlo Verdone as their protagonist.

In the TV series, Verdone, who plays himself, publicly always presents himself as a generous and helpful man, who never shies away from those who ask him for selfies or autographs. Privately, however, his life resembles a tragicomic prison. The turning point comes with the proposal to run for mayor of Rome. The decision, of course, brings with it comic and unpredictable implications.

Un professore

Un professore is an Italian TV series directed by Alessandro D'Alatri. The 12 episodes of dramatic genre are inspired by a Catalan TV series titled Merlì and aired on Rai 1 from November 11 to December 16. However, the TV series can be watched in its entirety at any time on Rai Play.

The plot tells the story of a philosophy teacher who, in addition to having a difficult and sometimes dark past, has a stormy relationship with his son who lives in a homosexual love affair. The cast includes Alessandro Gassmann, Claudia Pandolfi and Paolo Conticini.
