Coronavirus. CoVid-19. Pandemic. Social Distancing. Self-Isolation. Quarantine. Flatten the Curve. Stop the Spread. Stay the F Home. These words and phrases are flooding our everyday lives at home, at work, and as we go down the rabbit hole on social media.
If you’re looking for some escapist TV and movies during self-isolation, we’ve rounded up some of the best Damian-filled films and shows to binge, stream, or watch OnDemand. Let’s get started.
Homeland – Find it on Amazon Prime, Hulu, or Showtime OnDemand. Arguably one of the best television series with masterclass acting and storytelling. CIA officer Carrie Mathison (Clare Danes) fears and US Marine Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) is plotting a terrorist attack on America after being turned during his eight years held captive by al-Qaeda. It’s a compelling rollercoaster ride of red herrings, intrigue, politics and subterfuge.

At a time when the Cold War spying game was in full swing, Oleg Gordievsky was one of the KGB’s rising stars…and biggest traitors. For years, he provided top-secret Russian intelligence to the British, but he is best remembered for risking his life in 1983 to pull the world back from the brink of nuclear annihilation. Presented by host Damian Lewis and backed by firsthand accounts by Gordievsky himself, we detail the spy’s incredible career as a double agent and his gripping defection out of Russia.

NEW YORK – February 12, 2020 – Smithsonian Channel is set to investigate some of the most shocking and explosive cases of espionage over the last 50 years. SPY WARS WITH DAMIAN LEWIS features the incredible true stories of spy wars fought in the shadows, from the turbulent years of the Cold War to the Iran Hostage Crisis and the discovery of a complex web of sleeper agents living in the U.S. – a major inspiration for the plot of The Americans. Each episode of this new eight-part series sees host Damian Lewis revealing these remarkable tales of the secretive world of government intelligence, surveillance and international conspiracy plots with interviews from the experts and eyewitnesses that lived through them. SPY WARS WITH DAMIAN LEWIS premieres Sunday, March 22 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Smithsonian Channel.
The series premiere episode, THE MAN WHO SAVED THE WORLD, recounts the story of Oleg Gordievsky – a KGB agent who may have singlehandedly averted World War III. Posted to the Soviet embassy in London by the KGB, Gordievsky would become disenfranchised by the Soviet agenda and, in a shocking move, flipped to become a double agent for British intelligence MI6. What was to follow was a years-long effort by Gordievsky to pass Soviet intelligence to the British, all but preventing a nuclear Armageddon between the Soviet Union and the West.
