The Staircase | 2022 - Present

When Michael Peterson's wife dies, he tells the police it was due to her falling down the stairs. But after a medical examiner discovers she died from much more violent causes, it opens up a murder investigation. Did we mention this compelling mini-series mystery is based on a true-crime story? (You've been warned!)


The Garcias | 2022 - Present

If you watched The Brothers Garcia growing up, this show provides the closure and soothing nostalgia you didn't know you needed. The children of the Garcia family are all grown up and come together for a big family summer vacation at a beach house in Mexico. The vacay brings them closer as a family as they deal with their own personal issues.


Barry | 2018 - Present

Barry Berkman is a low-level hitman looking for a change. When he's sent to kill an actor in Los Angeles, he learns that LA may be his chance to try something new — but switching careers is never easy. In this series, Bill Hader has honestly never been funnier.


Lovecraft Country | 2020

Are you interested in sci-fi, horror, and period-based adventures? Lovecraft Country takes a unique approach to terror through a supernatural and racial lens. Each episode is creepier than the last and filled with exciting (and often mortifying) adventures.
