The adaptation of Margaret Atwood's iconic dystopian novel, The Handmaid's Tale, premieres Wednesday on Hulu. The first three episodes will premiere together, with new episodes released weekly following. The series is set in a haunting future where women are subjugated under the rule of the totalitarian Gilead regime. After environmental contamination causes widespread infertility, every fertile woman is captured and forced to serve as a handmaid in the homes of the government elites and (through ritualized rape) bear children for those men and their wives. The story also addresses the persecution of lesbian women specifically through the eyes of Moira, played by out actress Samira Wiley, and Ofglen (Alexis Bledel). The Handmaid's Tale: Wednesday, on Hulu.

Dear White People, the Netflix series based on the GLAAD Media Award-nominated film of the same name, premieres on Friday. The show addresses racial conflict at a private liberal arts school, told through the stories of several of its students.
