Like clockwork, every January the exciting and groundbreaking announcements for the year begin to roll in. Movie premiers are set, highly anticipated T.V shows are primed to launch, and companies unveil new franchises and products that are lined up to make their debut across the year ahead.
We love this time of year because it means we get to curate a dope line-up of TV shows to watch and movies to go see!
Here is a list of what we’re anticipating most:
On February 8th FX launches it’s new show Legion, a haunting re-imagination of a Marvel Comic character who is the beholder of a multitude of unworldly powers that build on his split personalities and threaten to make or break his life. In the series we get to see how these tensions play out and how love may step in to change our hero character fate. To enter the world of Legion click here and be sure to tune in Wednesday February 8th at 10 pm to watch the first episode of the show.
This film recently premiered at Sundance and received rave reviews, The L.A. Times dubbed it “The scariest film to come to Sundance,” and Variety called it a “searing political statement.” We know the themes of comedy, horror and social commentary in this film will be a favorite for many- you can watch the Get Out trailer here and see it for yourself in theaters on February 24th.
Comedian In Cars Getting Coffee:
Jerry Seinfeld decided to find a new home for his cult classic web series, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. Seinfeld’s new deal with Netflix, which grants the streaming service not only the previously produced nine seasons of the show and a new 10th season but also two new stand-up specials. We’re PUMPED.
This TNT show is a nail salon-set dramedy hailing from executive producer Rashida Jones. The hourlong series stars Niecy Nash, Carrie Preston, Harold Perrineau, Jenn Lyon, Judy Reyes, Jack Kesy, Karrueche Tran, Kevin Rankin and Jason Antoon. TNT has ordered 10 episodes for the first season. This is sure to be sassy, hilarious, and nail-poppin’ dramatic!
Dear White People:
This 10-episode, 30-minute project hails from Lionsgate Television and will, like the film, follow a diverse group of students of color as they navigate a predominantly white Ivy League college where racial tensions are often swept under the rug. If you’ve seen the movie, you know why we’re anticipating this show. It’s different, bold, and interesting. Learn more about the show here.
Enjoy! And stay tuned, because 2017 has much more to come…
