The Diplomat and Berlin

First season TV shows that feel like other TV shows.

The Diplomat (Season 1)

On the verge of an international crisis Kate Wyler (played by Keri Russell) is assigned as US ambassador to the UK and manage the politics going on there. A sharp script and good acting makes this very entertaining, and it has a bit of the Madam Secretary feeling to it - except for the big difference where here our protagonist is not in a happy marriage and a bit unhinged thanks to the gifts/curses her husband (excellently played by Rufus Sewell) gives her. A season two for this one has been confirmed, and we're definitely going to be watching it!

Berlin (Season 1)

This currently one season prequel to Money Heist sees fan favorite Berlin (Pedro Alonso) assemble his own heist team to rob an auction house in Paris, and while the heist part is really nifty the crew are a bunch of real amateurs! You thought the Money Heist crew was bad? Wait till you see what shenanigans this lot gets up to. Even Berlin himself isn't immune to holding the idiot stick, but if you liked Money Heist - odds are you'll probably enjoy this. Of course the opposite is true as well.
