Special Ops to Roar on Prime Video

Special Ops: Lioness, the latest series from Yellowstone creator Taylor Sheridan, will stream on Prime Video from October 13.

It stars Zoe Saldaña as a CIA officer tasked with befriending the daughter of a suspected terrorist under CIA surveillance.

The eight-part thriller has been streaming globally on Paramount+ since July 23.

Reviews were mixed, ranging from, “This isn’t Zero Dark Thirty. This isn’t even American Sniper. This is Dallas in Syria” (USA Today), to “a moody, suspenseful, textured genre piece with characters you cared about” (New York Times).

Premiering the same day is The Burial, a comedy inspired by true events starring Tommy Lee Jones, Jamie Foxx, Jurnee Smollett, Mamoudou Athie, Pamela Reed, Bill Camp and Alan Ruck. Reads the blurb:

When a handshake deal goes sour, funeral homeowner Jeremiah O’Keefe  Jones) enlists charismatic, smooth-talking attorney Willie E. Gary (Foxx) to save his family business. Tempers flare and laughter ensues as the unlikely pair bond while exposing corporate corruption and racial injustice in this inspirational, triumphant story.

Also due next month is slasher comedy Totally Killer. Reads the blurb:

Thirty-five years after the shocking murder of three teens, the infamous “Sweet Sixteen Killer“ returns on Halloween night to claim a fourth victim. Seventeen-year-old Jamie (Kiernan Shipka) ignores her overprotective mom’s (Julie Bowen) warning and comes face-to-face with the masked maniac and, on the run for her life, accidentally time-travels to 1987, the year of the original killings. Forced to navigate the unfamiliar and outrageous culture of the 1980s, Jamie teams up with her teen mom (Olivia Holt) to take down the killer once and for all, before she’s stuck in the past forever.

And coming to Prime Video early next year is Expats, a six-part limited series based on Janice YK Lee’s novel The Expatriates. Reads the blurb:

Set against the vibrant and tumultuous tapestry of 2014 Hong Kong,Expatscentres on three American women—Margaret (Nicole Kidman), Hilary (Sarayu Blue), and Mercy (Ji-young Yoo)—whose lives intersect after a sudden family tragedy. The series interrogates privilege and explores what happens when the line between victimhood and culpability becomes blurred.

Brian Tee, who plays Margaret’s husband Clarke, and Jack Huston, who plays Hilary’s husband David, also star.

Another 2024 newcomer is the “re-imagining” of the 2005 movie Mr. and Mrs. Smith.

This version stars Donald Glover and Maya Erskine as strangers who have given up their identities to be partners in espionage and in marriage.

Each episode follows them on a new mission and new milestone in their relationship — where divorce is not an option.

  1. I got my Samsung Freestyle Projector today and I love it. The picture size is excellent and yes, it’s got Baywatch 😂

  2. I bet it’s not as impressive as my Panasonic pt ae8000u projector! This projector is quite nice. I’m in need of a new projector but I’m wanting Sony or JVC for their superior black levels and contrast.

  3. My Panny GZ2000 OLED ftw! lolol
    Special Ops didn’t roar – more like a meek meow. Far from Sheridan’s best work, this was a bit snoozy and predictable fodder.
