New to TVNZ+ in November

Thanks to the vagaries of Paramount Global’s distribution strategies, three series from Taylor Sheridan soon will be spread across different streaming platforms: Yellowstone on Neon, 1883 on Prime Video and from November 13, Tulsa King on TVNZ+.

It stars Sylvester Stallone as New York mafia capo Dwight ‘The General’ Manfredi who, after 25 years in prison, is unceremoniously exiled by his boss to set up shop in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Realising his mob family might not have his best interests in mind, Dwight builds up a crew of misfits and unlikely characters to help him establish a new criminal empire in a place that might as well be another planet.

Garrett Hedlund (On the Road), Vincent Piazza (Boardwalk Empire) and Martin Starr (Silicon Valley) co-star.

Pitch Perfect: Bumper in Berlin (November 23) picks up 10 years after college, with Bumper Allen (Adam Devine) working as a security guard until one of his songs goes viral in Berlin and he moves to Germany to revive his his dreams of becoming a pop star.

Flula Borg, who played Das Sound Machine’s Pieter Krämer in the movie franchise, Sarah Hyland (Modern Family) and Jameela Jamil (The Good Place) co-star.

Rogue Heroes (TBA) is Peaky Blinders scribe Steven Knight’s take on how the SAS was formed under extraordinary circumstances in the darkest days of World War II.

Connor Swindells (Sex Education), Alfie Allen (Game of Thrones), Jack O’Connell (Skins) and Dominic West (The Wire) star in an adaptation of the book by Ben Macintyre.

In My Skin (November 21) is a darkly funny series about a South Wales teenager who uses humour to hide the truth of her home life from her friends.

“But when your mother is in a mental facility and likes breaking out and your father is a Hell’s Angel, flying under the radar isn’t easy,” reads the blurb.

“Brutally honest and full of humour, heart and hope, this coming-of-age comedy drama is based on the real life of writer Kayleigh Llewellyn.”

  1. I was wondering where Tulsa King was going to land here if it was. Definitely not using TVNZ+ to see it that’s for real!
