Rules of The Game is a new upcoming TV show that includes women movement, politics, mystery, thriller, as well as crime.
This crime, mystery, drama TV series is inspired by the abuse scandal of Harvey Weinstein which encouraged the #MeToo movement worldwide.
Starring Maxine Peake, this TV series will be aired on BBC. It will picture the struggle of sexual politics in the modern workplace and the difficulties that women nowadays have to face, with the massive sexual harassment and inequalities in their workplace.
This show is written by Ruth Fowler, who admitted that this fictional show is inspired by many women’s experiences, including her own. She also stated that in the retelling, there is no women that were harmed, maimed, or exposed to Harvey.
Ruth Fowler revealed that when the show was conceived, at that time it was during the Weinstein scandal, and that she was concerned it will disturb the show. But she was wrong, since BBC and everyone else supports the show as it even becomes more relevant.
So, when Rules of The Game will be released? What the story will be about and who are the cast? Here is what we know so far about the upcoming TV show.

Rules of The Game Season 1: What Will It be About?
So what will this TV show tell us about?
This thriller drama will introduce us to a character named Maya, a new Human Resources director who wants to eliminate the old-fashioned culture in the company. Unfortunately, as she investigates the history of misconducts in the company, her boss, Sam, gives her resistance. Sam thinks that there is no such thing as institutional bias against women, suggesting that it only happened in the past. Sam is a hard-headed manager in the family-run company.
Until one day, in that one morning, Sam sees a dead body in the office reception, and long story short, she has to deal with the cases of misconduct in the company, as well as secrets and murder case.
