Benjamin Franklin once said there are two things that are certain in life: death and conspiracy theories. OK, that may be paraphrasing but, when it comes to American society, it’s true.

As hit shows like “Broad City,” “Jane the Virgin, “Veep” and “Game of Thrones” end this year, what is lining up to take their place? Society has been through enough, another repeat of “Friends” just won’t cut it anymore.

Much like a business education this art is straight to the point.

Each ingredient is a story, each step an assurance, all coming together to craft one damn good cookie.

Change up a couple details and this true-crime show may as well take place in New York City with Mariska Hargitay leading the investigation.
