From Search Party to original movie I Am Woman: Everything coming to Stan this August.

It's fair to say we've all been watching a lot of TV in recent months.

Whether is be a late night true crime doco or a trashy yet (extremely) addictive reality TV series, there's nothing like a good binge-watching session to keep ourselves entertained while at home. 

And that's not going to stop anytime soon because Stan is about to drop a bunch of new TV shows and movies next month. 

From documentaries like Love Fraud to Stan's Original Film I Am Woman, there's something for all of us to add to our watch list. 

Watch the trailer for Stan Original Film I Am Woman. Post continues below.
