Now that we’ve added SHOWTIME® to our premium channel collection for $10 a month, you not only have access to a whole new movie collection but also to some of TV’s most critically-acclaimed and most-buzzed about shows, like Billions, Homeland and Shameless that are ready for a full binge-a-thons.
Coming up on its eighth season, Shameless depicts the life and happenings of Frank Gallagher (William H. Macy), a single father of six children living in Chicago. Frank struggles with alcohol and drug addiction and relies on stealing to survive, which leaves his eldest daughter, Fiona (Emmy Rossum) to pick up the slack of taking care of her five siblings. The long-running dramedy has racked up a number of nominations and wins, including Macy winning Best Actor in a Comedy Series at the Screen Actor Guild awards in 2015 and 2017.
Top CIA officer Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) struggles with bipolar disorder, making her unpredictable. When POW Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) is rescued from Iraq and returned home after being MIA since 2003, Carrie believes he’s been “turned” by the radical terrorist group while nearly everyone else sees him as a war hero. But, with the help of her mentor Saul Berenson (Mandy Patinkin), she continues to put her well-being on the line to surveil Brody and prevent an attack on American soil. This fan-favorite has earned the respect of critics, too, with its Emmy and Golden Globe wins for Best Drama as well as Golden Globes for both Damian Lewis and Claire Danes for Best Actor/Actress.
Liev Schreiber stars at the titular character who works Goldman & Drexler, a powerful law firm in Los Angeles, as a “fixer” — in other words, he arranges bribes, payoffs, threats and the like to ensure the desired outcome for the rich and famous clients the law firm represents — but all is threatened when his father Mickey (Jon Voight) is released from prison and the FBI attempts to bring down Ray and his associates. Ray Donovan has been nominated for several Golden Globes and Emmys with Jon Voight winning Best Supporting Actor at the 2014 Golden Globes.
Just at the end of its second season, Billions is sure to make a splash during the 2017 awards season. Paul Giamatti and Damian Lewis star alongside Malin Akerman and Maggie Siff in the drama surrounding a federal prosecutor of financial crimes and his legal struggles with the hedge fund manager of SAC Capital.
Through perspective shifts between all parties involved, The Affair explores the emotional trauma that comes when two people — one happily married and the other less so — engage in an extramarital affair. Dominic West (The Wire) and Ruth Wilson (Luther) star as Noah, a schoolteacher and novelist, and Alison, a waitress working to put her marriage back together after she and her husband suddenly lost their only child. After its 2015 debut, Ruth Wilson won a Golden Globe for Best Actress – TV Series Drama while the entire show won Best Drama. In 2016, Maura Tierney won a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress for her season 2 performance as Noah’s wife, Helen.
Originally aired in the early 90s on ABC, SHOWTIME® is picking up where Twin Peaks left off 25 years ago with original cast members, like Kyle MacLachlan as FBI special agent Dale Cooper, along with new additions, like Laura Dern, Naomi Watts, Jim Belushi and Jennifer Jason Leigh. Little is known about the upcoming series other than SHOWTIME® president David Nevins saying the core of it is Agent Cooper’s odyssey back to Twin Peaks, and that it premieres May 21st.
