Harlan Coben Shares His Favorite TV Shows

Harlan CobenAs a perennial #1 New York Times bestselling author, Harlan Coben is no stranger to a suspenseful story that won’t let you out of its grip. Coben’s newest thriller Run Away is just that—and with over 70 million books in print and thirty novels to his name, we’re gonna go ahead and call him an authority on the subject of suspense. Not only that, as creator and executive producer of several television shows, such as the Netflix Original drama, Safe, Coben knows what makes for great television, too. So, we were thrilled when he shared five of his own favorite TV shows with us here.

Harlan Coben’s Favorite TV Shows:

Watch Harlan Coben’s shows on Netflix


We would gladly watch Michael C. Hall’s acting all-day, every-day, until the end of time (Dexteranyone?). So, when we heard that he’s the star of Harlan Coben’s brand-new Netflix Original drama, Safe, we cleared our calendars to binge-watch all eight episodes in one sitting. (Don’t act like you’ve never done it!)

The Five

Harlan Coben’s other series on Netflix, The Five is worthy of an all-in-one-weekend watch, too. So, maybe your plans for next weekend, too? When there’s a will there’s a way—and we know you’ll want to watch this one, too.
