A new British series based on the graphic novel by Alice Oseman, this drama follows 15-year-old Charlie, an openly gay student at his all-boys school, and his new friendship with a boy on the rugby team. As their relationship develops, Charlie and Nick realize that there might be something more to their friendship. In a feel-good, coming-of-age story, Joe Locke stars as Charlie Strong, Kit Connor as Nick Nelson, and Olivia Colman makes an appearance as Charlie’s mother.

New episodes stream on Thursdays

Starring Colin Firth as Michael Peterson, a crime novelist who was convicted of murdering his wife Kathleen (played by Toni Collette) in North Carolina in 2001, this new HBO Max miniseries is based on the true story — and how the famous French Netflix documentary of the same name came to be. After Kathleen was found dead at the bottom of the Petersons’ staircase, a 16-year judicial battle ensued as Michael Peterson was initially found guilty of murder in 2003. A star-studded cast includes Sophie Turner, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Dane DeHaan, Odessa Young, and Olivia DeJonge as the couple’s five children. Parker Posey plays Freda Black, the prosecutor on the case.
