Biography TV series in general are interesting because getting inside details on the people at the center of famous stories scratches a very specific itch, but the best biographical dramas elevate the storytelling with a stellar cast and juicy details. Whether it's about politics, crime, or something as seemingly silly as fashion, dramatized stories about real people both stoke and satisfy the fires of curiosity. And to help you quench any desire for delicious drama and interesting history, this list of the best biographical dramas of the past few years is ranked from best to worst thanks to your votes.

Some dramatic biography TV shows take a healthy amount of liberties with history, like the silly swashbuckling series Our Flag Means Death or The Great, but that's where the drama comes in - putting some of these shows as far as they can get from biography documentaries while still telling stories of real people. Most biography dramas due stick pretty close to the facts, especially when they're about relatively recent events such as the scandal around Elizabeth Holmes in Hulu's The Dropout. And it is centering a story around one or two people that turn a historical drama, or a story based on true events, into a biographical drama.
