In recent years, the production of series has reached a qualitatively new level. In many projects, you can see not only beginners and actors who are at the end of their careers, but also world-famous stars with several Oscars in their pockets. For example, people like Jane Adams, Cate Blanchett, John Hamm, Eva Green, devote years of their career to television projects and definitely add a few points to the series rating.
So, we found a number of interesting multi-series projects in which you can see a whole bunch of star actors.
