The 4th of July may be just around the corner, but don’t count June out quite yet. Believe it or not, the back nine of the this month is literally brimming with tons of new shows and movies available for streaming and on traditional OTA broadcasts; and best of all, you don’t need a cable subscription to check any of these summer TV premieres.
Great British Baking Show – PBS
Break out your best baking pan and get ready for the return of one of the best baking shows around. Contrasting with the hi-octane attitude of most reality shows, The Great British Baking Show is a relaxing competition pitting Britain’s best amateur bakers against each other in intense, yet strangely supportive, baking challenges.
The Gong Show – ABC
Yes, you read that right. The legendary talent contest from the late 70’s is making its triumphant return to network television. Produced by comedian Will Arnett and hosted by an in-character Mike Meyers as “comedian” Tommy Maitland; this modern take on an old classic is going to be packed with ridiculous celebrity judges, like Zach Galifianakis, so get ready to laugh as you take a walk down memory lane.
Zoo – CBS
For thousands of years, humans have been the dominant species one the planet, but what if that was no longer the case? What if the animals of the world decided to get together, and start a revolution? If that’s a question you desperately need answered, than you have to check Zoo. It’s Planet of the Apes but with more than just apes, what more can you want?
GLOW – Netflix
Back in the glory days of the 80’s, when Wrestling reigned supreme, a short lived but much beloved wrestling league known as GLOW(which stands for Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling) sprang up in the deserts of Nevada and the sport was never the same. GLOW is Netflix’s semi-fictional take on the wrestling league and centers on a young actress hoping to making it into the big time by becoming a wrestler.
Okja – Netflix
Directed by Bong Joon-ho of Snowpiercer fame, Okja is a monster movie where the monster is really not that…monstrous. Instead, the eponymous Okja is a cute and cuddly monster that looks more like a giant pig/hippo hybrid that’s been kidnapped (or is it monsternapped?) by an evil corporation led by Tilda Swinton. And it’s up to Okja’s equally adorable companion, as well as a band of sympathizing adults, to rescue him.
Gypsy – Netflix
Gypsy is a ten-part miniseries starring academy award winning actress Naomi Watts. Watt’s play a Manhattan therapist that breaks the one cardinal rules of her profession: Never get involved with the lives your your patients. As her addiction grows, so too does the fallout of her disastrous choices. And luckily for us, we get to watch the whole house of cards (no pun intended) come crashing down.
