Streaming Catch-Up: Due on Disney+ Star

True-crime saga Welcome to Chippendales is coming soon to Disney+ under the Star banner .

The limited series tells the outrageous story of Somen “Steve” Banerjee, an Indian immigrant who became the unlikely founder of the world’s greatest male-stripping empire.

It stars Kumail Nanjiani (The Big Sick) Murray Bartlett (The White Lotus) Juliette Lewis (Yellowjackets), Annaleigh Ashford (American Crime Story), Quentin Plair (The Good Lord Bird) and Robin de Jesús (tick, tick… BOOM!).

New to Disney+ under the Star hub from September 27 will be Onyx Collective’s first scripted drama series Reasonable Doubt.

Scandal and Little Fires Everywhere star Kerry Washington is the executive producer and directs the first episode.

About a judge who bucks the justice system with her questionable ethics and wild interpretations of the law, it stars Emayatzy Corinealdi, McKinley Freeman, Tim Jo, Angela Grovey, Thaddeus J. Mixson, Aderinsola Olabode and Michael Ealy.

Here’s the official trailer for This Fool, a Disney+ Original, which premieres Friday under the Star banner — the same day it launches on Hulu.

Inspired by the life and stand-up of star and co-creator Chris Estrada, it’s billed as an “irreverent, cinematic” half-hour comedy set in working class South Central Los Angeles.

The show centres around Julio Lopez, a 30-year-old who still lives at home, has been dating his girlfriend on and off since high school, and finds any excuse to avoid dealing with his own problems.

Julio works at Hugs Not Thugs, a gang rehabilitation non-profit, where he butts heads with his older cousin Luis, an ex-gang member who just got out of prison and moved in with Julio and his family.

Also coming soon to Disney+ Star is 10-part docuseries Legacy: The True Story of the LA Lakers..

About the remarkable rise and unprecedented success of one of the most dominant and iconic franchises in professional sports, it features exclusive access to the family of Dr. Jerry Buss, the tycoon who bought the team and turned it into a $5 million empire, and promises “probing, revealing interviews with players, coaches, and front office execs”.

Along with notorious feuds, career-ending illnesses, and a bevy of insurmountable on-court obstacles, the Lakers have also weathered intense drama off the court – within Dr. Buss’s own family.

Running the franchise as a “mom and pop” operation, Dr. Buss gave his children front office jobs with the understanding they would, someday, inherit his kingdom. But sibling rivalry, interpersonal conflict, and corporate unrest threatened to destroy everything Dr. Buss worked so hard to build.
