TV critic Dheepthika Laurent gives FRANCE 24's viewers a list of escapist TV dramas to watch this May. They chat about the much-awaited jazz drama "The Eddy" from the director of "Whiplash" and "La La Land", Damien Chazelle, and review HBO's indie show about female skateboarders trying to smash the patriarchy in their sport: "Betty" from director Crystal Moselle. It's a spinoff of her film "Skate Kitchen", featuring the same young actresses and avid skateboarders whom she discovered on the subway in New York.
