Seinfeld

Stream from Friday 22nd November

We're taking you right back to the very beginning...when Jerry Seinfeld was a single man, living in the 90s...

Join four friends - Jerry the comic, his best mate, bungling George Costanza, their frustrated working gal-pal Elaine and (not forgetting) Jerry's eccentric neighbour Cosmo Kramer, as they deal with the absurdities of everyday life in the Big Apple - New York City.

Paradise Hotel

Stream from Thursday 21st November

Hosted by Kristin Cavallari (The Hills), Paradise Hotel follows a group of singles who are given the opportunity of a lifetime – to check in to an exclusive tropical resort – and check out with big money.

Immersed in a gorgeous setting, these strangers will be surrounded by sun, fun and romance – all cloaked in a wild competition. This paradise won’t last forever...it will take strategy to remain there.

Each week, these singles will vote off one of their fellow residents to make room for a new guest. In a new twist, viewers in the US can play along at home, using social media to try and influence what happens on screen, including helping to decide who stays and who goes.

Wu-Tang: An American Saga

Created and produced by RZA, this new drama is based on the true story of hip-hop group Wu-Tang Clan’s rise to fame.

Set in early 90s New York at the height of the crack cocaine epidemic, this origin story tracks the groups formation, a vision of Bobby Diggs aka RZA. He strives to unite a dozen black young men who are torn between music and crime, but eventually rise to become the unlikeliest of success stories, and the most iconic influential hip-hop groups of all time.
