JC Reindl Detroit Free Press Published 7:07 AM EDT Apr 13, 2019 A young Detroit couple who helped controversial New York congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez win election last year as a democratic socialist are now launching a pro-socialism media company from their house on the city's east side. Their company, Means TV, is an Internet-only web streaming service that, for a monthly $10 subscription, would offer entertainment programming with "pro-worker" and "anti-capitalist" viewpoints, including original TV shows, talk shows, comedy sketches, reality TV and on-the-ground reporting. The service is the brainchild of filmmakers Naomi Burton, 29, and Nick Hayes, 22, a girlfriend-boyfriend duo who gained national attention last year for producing a campaign video for Ocasio-Cortez that went viral and helped to propel the formerly unknown candidate to an upset Democratic primary victory.

Is there even a fall TV season anymore? With so many different channels, streaming platforms, show formats, and distribution models, the days of a regimented September to May season are long gone. Even Facebook had a show debut this fall, for crying out loud. With the options almost endless, it’s increasingly difficult to determine what shows are worth viewing, much less where, when, and how you can watch any given show. To make everything just a bit easier, we’ve narrowed the field to only shows that a Bostonian might want to know about, whether it be a show set in the city, one starring Massachusetts natives, or a series with some other local tie.
