New to Prime Video in July

Great news for Ray Donovan fans: the acclaimed telemovie that caps the series’ run at last will stream here on Prime Video (from July 15).

The fact this SoHo staple will come to an end on Prime Video rather than Sky, which screened the first seven seasons, highlights how complex and bewildering the distribution of TV properties has become in the streaming age.

It follows two other Paramount series that have wound up on Prime Video: 1883 and Mayor of Kingstown.

Also new next month will be James May: Our Man in Italy, in which the Top GearGrand Tour co-presenter will explore Italy’s history, culture, landscape, industry and people (July 15). Reads the blurb:

From the Sicilian capital of Palermo to the peaks of the Dolomites, James will discover culture, food, industry, and even a bit of sport, all played out against some of the world’s most stunning landscapes. Can a bumbling, middle-aged, British bloke discover the secrets of ‘la dolce vita’?

Other highlights will include:

Paper Girls (July 29): In the early morning hours after Halloween 1988, four paper girls are out on their delivery route when they become caught in the crossfire between warring time-travellers, changing the course of their lives forever. Transported into the future, these girls must figure out a way to get back home to the past, a journey that will bring them face-to-face with the grown-up versions of themselves. While reconciling that their futures are far different than their 12-year-old selves imagined, they are being hunted by a militant faction of time-travellers known as the Old Watch, who have outlawed time travel so that they can stay in power. In order to survive, the girls will need to overcome their differences and learn to trust each other, and themselves.

The Terminal List (July 1): Based on the best-selling novel by Jack Carr, The Terminal List follows James Reece (Chris Pratt) after his entire platoon of Navy SEALs is ambushed during a high-stakes covert mission. Reece returns home to his family with conflicting memories of the event and questions about his culpability. However, as new evidence comes to light, Reece discovers dark forces working against him, endangering not only his life, but the lives of those he loves. 

Don’t Make Me Go (July 15): When single father Max (John Cho) discovers he has a terminal disease, he decides to try and cram all the years of love and support he will miss with his teenage daughter Wally (Mia Isaac) into the time he has left with her. With the promise of long-awaited driving lessons, he convinces Wally to accompany him on a road trip from California to New Orleans for his 20th college reunion, where he secretly hopes to reunite her with her mother who left them long ago.

Anything’s Possible (July 22): Directed by Billy Porter,  Anything’s Possible is an uplifting and modern Gen Z coming-of-age story that follows Kelsa, a confident high school girl who is trans, as she navigates her senior year. When her classmate Khal gets a crush on her, he musters up the courage to ask her out, despite the drama he knows it could cause. What transpires is a romance that showcases the joy, tenderness, and pain of young love.

Warrior on the Field (July 8): Presented by AFL legend Michael O’Loughlin and directed by Indigenous academic and filmmaker Larissa Behrendt, Warriors On The Field examines the strength Indigenous players get from their culture, connection to the game, and how it helps them navigate racism in Australia. Sharing their stories alongside O’Loughlin – a Kaurna, Ngarrindjeri, Narungga man – are current AFL players Michael “Sonny” Walters, a Proud Noongar man from the Fremantle Dockers, and up-and-coming North Melbourne young gun Tarryn Thomas, a Kamillaroi and Lumaranaana man originally from Sydney.

Forever Summer: Hamptons (July 15): Coming-of-age docusoap, set against the idyllic backdrop of the Hamptons, about a group of college kids from widely different backgrounds, from wealthy New York City kids who descend for the summer, to the humble townies.
