Wayne: Season 1 (2019)
Description: Wayne can’t help himself from righting the world’s wrongs. Now, against all odds, the 16-year-old and his one-of-a-kind girlfriend Del are on a road trip from Brockton, Massachusetts to Ocala, Florida to reclaim what’s rightfully his: a wicked-hot ’79 Trans-Am that was stolen from his dying father. With trouble behind them and danger ahead, Wayne and Del are bound to find themselves with their backs against the wall. But that’s OK. They’ve been there before.
Critics Consensus: The most thoughtfully violent series you’ll see all year, Wayne is a home run.

Alex Rider: Season 1 (2020)
Description: Alex Rider is a coming of age spy-thriller series based on the best-selling, global phenomenon book franchise written by Anthony Horowitz, which has sold over 20 million copies worldwide. The series follows Alex Rider, a London-based teenager who has unknowingly been trained since childhood for the dangerous world of espionage.

Premiere Date: November 13
Description: Small Axe is an anthology comprised of five original films set from the late 1960s to the mid 1980s that tell personal stories from London’s West Indian community, whose lives have been shaped by their own force of will despite rampant racism and discrimination.
