Tara Ward joins Jack Tame to discuss the latest in television and streaming series'.

Here are her picks for this week:

Succession: At last, season three of the award-winning drama about an American global-media family comes to Neon. The Roy children rich, they’re powerful and they’re powerfully dysfunctional, and they’re all fighting for control of their father’s media empire amid his declining health (Neon, from 18 October).  

Angela Black: Joanne Froggatt stars in this dark British thriller about a woman - who on the outside appears to have it all - but is hiding a life of domestic abuse and decides to fight back (TVNZ OnDemand).  

Bad Sport: True crime and sports intersect in this Netflix docu-series that examines global sporting controversies and scandals with firsthand accounts from those involved.
