A British trope in particular, these are quiet, inoffensive drama series, often of the CostumeDrama variety, that TheBBC or {{ITV}} sticks on Sunday evening (5.30pm to 8.30pm). They are designed for all the family to watch before the stress of Monday.

Sunday dramas are also well-established in the United States through the medium of cable. {{HBO}}, {{Showtime}}, and Creator/{{AMC}} reserve most (if not all) of their original programming for this night. In America, however, the Sunday Evening Drama Series is more likely to be [[HotterAndSexier racier]] and [[DarkerAndEdgier more violent]]. These shows also tend to be AwardBait.

* ''Series/{{Girls}}'' is [[{{Dramedy}} technically a comedy]], but arguably falls into the confines of the trope for being an {{HBO}} show that's AwardBait and HotterAndSexier, and for having a similar audience to the other US examples here.
