Family, friends and gainful employment be damned.
From a salacious new royal drama that is saucier than The Crown will ever be, to a zombie rom-com that will leave you weak at the knees and the movie about the late Whitney Houston that will leave you convulsing in tears, here are all the new movies and TV shows on Stan in May 2019
New TV shows coming to Stan in May.
Timeless movie heartthrob George Clooney read Joseph Heller’s novel Catch-22 while he was still in high school and loved the book’s storyline. Fast forward a couple of decades and he is now executive producing, directing and starring in the TV adaptation of the novel. The dark comedy stars Christopher Abbott (who you might remember from Girls) as John Yossarian, a US Army Air Forces bombardier in World War II who is furious that thousands of people are trying to kill him. Yet there seems to be no way for him to slip out of his military service. The series also stars Kyle Chandler, Hugh Laurie and Giancarlo Giannini.
Premiering on May 18.
- The Spanish Princess
New British-American drama miniseries The Spanish Princess is based on the best-selling novels The Constant Princess and The King’s Curse by Philippa Gregory. Former Game Of Thrones actress Charlotte Hope plays Catherine of Aragon, the young princess of Spain who’d been promised the English throne since she was a child. After she becomes Princess of Wales, her husband Prince Arthur dies suddenly and effectively she loses the throne. It’s a salacious historical drama.
