A Corey, the series follows United Nations executive Chrisjen Avasarala (Shohreh Aghdashloo), police detective Josephus Miller (Thomas Jane), and ship's officer Jim Holden (Steven Strait) as they unravel a mystery surrounding a missing woman that could threaten the peaceful colony.

Upon the sudden death of King George VI, Queen Elizabeth finds herself thrust into the spotlight, and navigates her way through her personal relationships, and her professional relationship with Prime Minister Winston Churchill (John Lithgow).

An investigation into the muder of a female doctor in broad daylight at a children's playground provides the thrust for Paranoid (trailer). Set for worldwide release on the 17th, this eight episode series looks to be an excellent, gripping crime drama. Written by Bill Gallagher (The Paradise), the series stars Kevin Doyle (Downtown Abbey), Indira Varma (Game Of Thrones), and Robert Glenister (The Musketeers).

Netflix exclusive, spinoff from the original Winx series, World of Winx agents are undercover talent scouts seeking gifted children to help make their dreams come true. Winx club fairies to protect these children without revealing their magical natures.

In Zootopia, Judy is the newest police recruit and sets out to find her way in the big city. This movie is whip smart, and very cleverly showcases strong values of ambition and grit, next to remarkably relatable characters that equally make us giggle and gasp. High replay value!

Four estranged brothers return to their childhood home to stay with their dying mother. Strained family relationships between the two sets of biological and half brothers crackle with buried secrets and hidden agendas. band together when a group of masked men invade and attack their home. Released at the Los Angeles Film Festival and directed by Chris Sparling, Mercy premieres worldwide later in November.

Kevin James is Sam Larson, a mild-mannered author who stumbles with mistaken identity crisis when his fictional novel of about an international assassin is published as a true story.
