New to Prime Video in November

Prime Video’s November highlights include a James Corden vehicle, in which the star who’s taken a battering for his alleged bad behaviour in a New York City restaurant, plays a Michelin star chef.

Streaming in order of their premieres will be:

My Policeman (November 4)

This story of forbidden love and changing social conventions follows three young people – policeman Tom (Harry Styles), teacher Marion (Emma Corrin), and museum curator Patrick (David Dawson) – as they embark on an emotional journey in 1950s Britain. Flashing forward to the 1990s, Tom (Linus Roache), Marion (Gina McKee), and Patrick (Rupert Everett) are still reeling with longing and regret, but now they have one last chance to repair the damage of the past. Based on the book by Bethan Roberts, director Michael Grandage carves what Prime Video dubs “a visually transporting, heart-stopping portrait of three people caught up in the shifting tides of history, liberty, and forgiveness”.

The English (November 11)

An epic chase Western, from award-winning writer and director Hugo Blick, the series explores identity and revenge to tell a uniquely compelling parable on race, power, and love. An aristocratic Englishwoman, Lady Cornelia Locke (Emily Blunt), and a Pawnee ex-cavalry scout, Eli Whipp (Chaske Spencer), come together in 1890 middle America to cross a violent landscape built on dreams and blood. Both of them have a clear sense of their destiny, but neither is aware that it is rooted in a shared past. They must face increasingly terrifying obstacles that will test them to their limits, physically and psychologically. But as each obstacle is overcome, it draws them closer to their ultimate destination — the new town of Hoxem, Wyoming. It is here, after an investigation by the local sheriff Robert Marshall (Stephen Rea) and young widow Martha Myers (Valerie Pachner) into a series of bizarre and macabre unsolved murders, that the full extent of their intertwined history will be truly understood, and they will come face-to-face with the future they must live.

Mammals (November 11)

What starts as a romantic getaway, quickly escalates into a dark comedy drama that explores the truths at the heart of modern relationships. Mammals follows the story of Jamie (James Corden), a Michelin star chef whose world implodes when he discovers shocking secrets about his pregnant wife, Amandine. A six-part series written by two-time Olivier and Tony Award-winning Jez Butterworth, Mammals is billed as “a comedy drama about the complexities of marriage: there is sadness, grief, tension, love, friendship, betrayal, and a touch of magical realism.” Sally Hawkins co-stars.

The People We Hate at the Wedding (November 18)

Struggling American siblings Alice (Kristen Bell) and Paul (Ben Platt) reluctantly agree to attend the wedding of their estranged, wealthy half-sister (Cynthia Addai-Robinson) in the English countryside alongside their mother, Donna (Allison Janney). Over the course of the wedding week, the family’s many skeletons are wrenched from the closet, and the unlikely reunion gives everyone the motivation to move their own lives forward. A modern wedding comedy for anyone with a slightly dysfunctional family (everyone), or anyone who’s been forced to attend a wedding they tried to avoid (also everyone).

Good Night Oppy (November 23)

The inspirational true story of Opportunity, a rover that was sent to Mars for a 90-day mission but ended up surviving for 15 years. The film follows Opportunity’s groundbreaking journey on Mars and the remarkable bond forged between a robot and her humans millions of miles away.

Call Jane (November 25)

In 1968 Chicago, with the city and the nation amid the political and civil upheaval, Joy (Elizabeth Banks), a conservative housewife and mother, is faced with a devastating diagnosis when her second pregnancy leads to a life-threatening heart condition. Following an all-male hospital board’s decision to deny an exemption for an abortion, which is, by law, illegal, Joy’s search for a solution leads her to a clandestine group of women. Led by Virginia (Sigourney Weaver), an independent visionary fiercely committed to women’s health, and Gwen (Wunmi Mosaku), an activist who envisions a day when all women will have access to safe, affordable abortions, this community of women ignites an awakening in Joy. Inspired by their compassion and commitment, Joy joins them, putting every aspect of her life on the line.

Meet Cute (November 25)

When Sheila (Kaley Cuoco) and Gary (Pete Davidson) meet, it’s love at first sight – until we realise their magical date wasn’t fate at all. Sheila’s got a time machine, and they’ve been falling in love over and over again. But when the perfect night is never quite enough, Sheila travels to Gary’s past to change him into the perfect man.

    I notice on TVNZ+ most of the Doctor Who episodes are leaving. I wonder where they are heading to ? I can only think of Disney+ but I haven’t heard anything more about it ?

  2. Not that the brilliant HotD is finished (what a last 5 minutes), I recommend The Peripheral, the first two episodes are really good. Hopefully it doesn’t go the way of Westworld series 3 though …

  3. No doubt, Trevor, but I don’t think the expiring eps are related specifically to Disney+ wanting to snare Doctor Who. Only S13 eps are affected, not the most recent specials, and would have been licensed for a limited term long before D+ ambitions were revealed.

  4. I wish we could have all of the Doctor Who series together on the one streaming service, that would be awesome. I have got some on Blu-ray ?

  5. Breaking News: Doctor Who is heading to Disney+ outside the UK from 2023, Sadly, it doesn’t seem to include earlier seasons but still it’s definitely good news for Doctor Who, which will get more people watching it. EXCITING ?

  6. Thanks, Trevor. Here’s the link for the announcement.

  7. I notice Philip there is going to be a LIVE Elton John concert on Disney+ in November, does that include New Zealand as well? if so I guess we are getting Livestreams ?

  8. I know what you mean Trevor. I wish I could find all the sport in one place rather than having to subscribe to multiple services. I wish I could have the entertainment I want rather than subscribing to multiple services (or regularly cancelling/re-subscribing). Thats the joy of competition.

  9. Hey, Trevor, you’d like to think the concert would be live-streamed here but nothing confirmed yet for NZ.

  10. I know that feeling well about sports. At the moment I have got Spark Sports but do wish they have more sports I’m interested in. I do wonder if Disney+ will be adding sports soon as well ?

  11. Thanks Philip, I did actually read somewhere that it’s LIVE on Disney+ worldwide so I guess we will find out in November, it’s big news if so ?

  12. Wonder when will you publish the week’s TV listings for 5-11 November? Why are you taking so long?

  13. Yay, Disney+ found the right home after TVNZ shabbily treated the show for the past 4 years since they had the rights back, as they flipped on Friday night on TVNZ 2 and special screened on TVNZ 1 last year and bumping back to 5.30 back on 2. I won’t have to put up for awful treatment by the state broadcaster ever again.

  14. Disney+ NZ confirmed the live stream today, Trevor. Will post shortly.

  15. Glad to know you so look forward to HD Heads-Up, Sheldon. Alas, ScreenScribe is only a part-time venture and has to take a back seat to other priorities when they’re front and centre. However, hope to post tonight.
