Spend less time shoveling snow this weekend, and more time watching some of the most obsessable entertainment on TV. This weekend, all DIRECTV customers without STARZ® can catch the premiere of the hotly anticipated Sci-Fi thriller Counterpart (Sunday, January 21st at 8/7c on Ch. 525), starring Academy Award winner J.K. Simmons. The series centers around a parallel dimension that has split off from our reality during the height of the Cold War. If you’re a fan of mind-warping twists and turns and socio-political thrillers, then Counterpart is just the thing to help you make it through a frigid January.

And if you’re the bingeing type, good news! STARZ® has already ordered Season 2 of Counterpart, making the show perfect for anyone looking to get invested in well-crafted characters that reveal more of their secrets with every viewing. Knowing it’s going to be around for a while, means you can let yourself get obsessed!
