There’s A Mountain Of Entertainment This May On Paramount+
From new series, new movies, and continuing series, there really is a mountain of entertainment this May on Paramount+
It is looking like an enjoyable month of entertainment on Paramount+. From brand-new and exclusive original drama to a reboot of a classic 1980s psychological thriller, the battle for the Premier League, a new reality series, and the continuation of shows already premiered, there is enough entertainment for the whole family.
The box set drops on May 18th. It contains 7 episodes of 60 minutes each. No Escape stars BAFTA Scotland Award Winner Abigail Lawrie and Rhianne Barreto as best friends Lana and Kitty, who are on the run from their lives in the UK. Together they find refuge on a romantic yacht, The Blue, crewed by a group of enigmatic people sailing through Southeast Asia. But The Blue harbors dark secrets and the paradise the girls thought they had found turns into a nightmare.
Episodes 1,2, & 3 drops on May 1st. There are 8 episodes of 60 minutes each. A deep-dive reimagining of the classic psychological thriller and ’80s cultural touchstone, the new series will explore fatal attraction and the timeless themes of marriage and infidelity, through the lens of modern attitudes towards strong women, personality disorders, and coercive control.
FEVER PITCH: THE BATTLE FOR THE PREMIER LEAGUE
The box set drops on May 7th. There are 4 episodes of 60 minutes each. With exclusive interviews from the biggest names in the game-David Beckham, Jose Mourinho, Wayne Rooney, Arsene Wenger, Frank Lampard, and more-this series charts how the Premier League was transformed by investment when international investors came into the game. Starting in April 2003-the year that many believe changed football forever-an unknown Russian businessman attends a match at Old Trafford. Fever Pitch tells the story of Roam Abramovich’s takeover of Chelsea FC and the creation of a credible rival to title winners Arsenal and Manchester United.
But as new contenders rise-buoyed by a tsunami of cash-so-do owner expectations, and fierce rivalries develop. Through candid tales of the boardroom and the ballgame, we explore the decade that money ruled at both ends of the table-with teams like Leeds United desperately trying to stay afloat in a world they can barely afford to inhabit. It’s the story of rich and poor, tragedy and triumph, truth and perception.
THE FAMILY STALLONE
Episodes 1 & 2 drops on May 18th. There are 10 episodes of 30 minutes each. After playing some of the most legendary characters in cinematic history, three-time Academy Award nominee Sylvester Stallone is ready to give cameras access to what he would consider the greatest role of his lifetime: dad. This new series starring Stallone’s three daughters, wife, and himself offers a seat at the table of one of Hollywood’s most famous families.
Episodes 1 & 2 will drop on May 26th. There are 6 episodes of 60 minutes each. Based on Ilaria Bernardini’s novel Corpo Libero has at its center youth and risk, the desire to grow, and the fear of change, as it alternates between unbridled competition and stainless friendship, physical and psychological violence, blood pacts, kissing and night escapes, endurance tests and drug hallucinations.
It is a tale of the making of a spectacular time bomb, the centrifugal force of adolescence compressed by the centripetal force of competitive action, encased in a shimmering pink and silver leotard and a six-foot-five-inch height. A genre tale but at the same time rhythmic, pop, and vital as only adolescence can be.
SON OF A CRITCH SEASON 2
The box set drops on May 30th. There are 13 episodes of 60 minutes each. Set in Newfoundland in the ’80s, Mark, a boy much older inside than his 11 years, uses comedy and self-depreciation to navigate starting junior high school, making friends, and connecting with the small collection of people in his limited world.
EX ON THE BEACH UK: THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY
Episode 1 drops on May 9th. There are 12 episodes of 60 minutes each. This latest series is filled with all the tension and drama we’ve come to expect but with a new twist! Amongst the first exes are the ‘ones that got away’ who just can’t get their ex out of their head. Watch as a selection of our couples are sent on ‘The One That Got Away Getaway’ and are faced with the ultimate decision to either rekindle their relationship or draw a line in the sand forever.
With returning format favorites including glamorous sea entrances, luxurious dates, and the return of the infamous Tablet Of Terror, this new series also introduces the Confession Cabana-the perfect place for spilling secrets and reflecting on rekindled romances. One not to miss!
The film drops on May 12th. Action legend Bruce Willis comes out with guns blazing in this high-octane fast-paced thriller from the producers of The Irishman and Lone Survivor. The newest recruit to Homeland Security’s criminal surveillance command center-the Wire Room-gets himself and his boss, a jaded federal agent, entangled with a cartel arms dealer.
