Streaming Catch-Up: New Trailers and Dates

Apple TV+ today unveiled the trailer for limited drama series Black Bird, a gritty, suspenseful psychological thriller that stars Ray Liotta in one of his last roles.

The six-episode series, from best-selling author Dennis Lehane, will premiere with the first two episodes on July 8, followed by one new episode weekly. Here’s the blurb:

Inspired by actual events, when high school football hero and decorated policeman’s son Jimmy Keene (Taron Egerton) is sentenced to 10 years in a minimum security prison, he is given the choice of a lifetime: enter a maximum-security prison for the criminally insane and befriend suspected serial killer Larry Hall (Paul Walter Hauser), or stay where he is and serve his full sentence with no possibility of parole. Keene quickly realises his only way out is to elicit a confession and find out where the bodies of several young girls are buried before Hall’s appeal goes through. But is this suspected killer telling the truth? Or is it just another tale from a serial liar? This dramatic and captivating story subverts the crime genre by enlisting the help of the very people put behind bars to solve its mysteries.

Liotta plays Keene’s father, Greg Kinnear co-stars and The Drop’s Michaël R. Roskam directed the first three episodes.

Prime Video has released the full trailer for its new Chris Pratt spy series, The Terminal List, and is teasing a series spun off the movie A League of Their Own.

The eight-part Terminal List, about a traumatised Navy SEAL who unearths new evidence about the forces behind his squad’s ambush, will stream from July 1 following its June 18 premiere at the Monte Carlo Television Festival.

All eight episodes of A League of Their Own will land on Prime Video on August 12.

According to the blurb, it evokes the spirit of Penny Marshall’s movie while widening the lens to tell the story of a generation of women who dreamed of playing professional baseball.

The show takes a deeper look at race and sexuality, following the journey of a whole new ensemble of characters as they carve their own paths towards the field, both in the league and outside of it.

Don’t Make Me Go will release on Prime Video three days later, after its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival.

It stars John Cho as a terminally-ill father who takes his teenage daughter (Mia Isaac) on a road trip to his 20th college reunion.
