Cable Girls and More: Prime Time for Jazz Age TV and Movies

Cable Girls

Cable Girls/Las Chicas del Cable, an original Netflix series about four women working as switchboard operators, is set in Madrid, Spain, in the 1920s.

Set to debut in Canada later in 2017 is Frankie Drake, a series about the only female private detective in Toronto.

Along with her partner Trudy, Frankie and the Drake Detective Agency take on cases of all shapes and sizes. From airplanes and booze running to American G-men, Communists and union busters, Frankie’s fearless sense of adventure gets her into all kinds of trouble, but she always manages to find her way out.

Meanwhile, Z: The Beginning of Everything, about Zelda Fitzgerald, is currently on Netflix. The Hollywood Reporter calls it “jaunty” and “breezy.”

Want a spy movie about the Korean resistance movement in the 1920s? That would be Age of Shadows.
