January 2020: Crave Overview

Toronto — December 19, 2019

MUST-WATCH TITLES FOR JANUARY

January 1 – NEW EDEN *Crave Original Series*
  • From the minds of showrunners and stars Evany Rosen and Kayla Lorette comes a true crime comedy about the highs and lows of starting an all-female cult. NEW EDEN begins in 1977, when Katherine Wryfield (Lorette) and Grace Lee (Rosen) attempted to start a large scale feminist utopia. But in the inexperienced hands of Lee and Wryfield, the community quickly devolved into a drug addled, alien worshipping mess. Oh, and there were definitely some murders. Spanning the 70s, 80s, and 90s, NEW EDEN is the wildest documentary you’ve never seen about the most notorious women you’ve never heard of. The eight-part, half-hour series drops New Year’s Day, only on Crave.
  January 19 – HBO’s AVENUE 5 *Series Premiere* (10 p.m. ET)
  • Created by Armando Iannucci of (VEEP), AVENUE 5 is a new HBO comedy set 40 years in the future when traveling the solar system is no longer the stuff of sci-fi fantasy, but a booming, multibillion-dollar business. The series stars Hugh Laurie as Ryan Clark, the confident and suave captain of “Avenue 5,” a space cruise ship with luxury amenities like gourmet buffets, a spa, an observation deck, and yoga classes. As the series begins, Avenue 5’s eight-week journey around Saturn is underway and its systems are optimal. But when the ship suddenly encounters technical difficulties, it’s up to Ryan and his crew to calm the disgruntled passengers and find a way to deal with unexpected events onboard – though they may or may not be equipped for the task.
  January 12 – HBO’s THE OUTSIDER *Double-Episode Series Premiere* (9 and 10 p.m. ET)
  • Based on Stephen King’s bestselling novel of the same name, THE OUTSIDER is a new drama series that explores the investigation into the gruesome murder of a local boy and the mysterious force surrounding the case. The 10-episode series follows police detective Ralph Anderson (Ben Mendelsohn) as he sets out to investigate the mutilated body of 11-year-old Frankie Peterson found in the Georgia woods. The mysterious circumstances surrounding this horrifying crime leads Ralph, still grieving the recent death of his own son, to bring in unorthodox private investigator Holly Gibney (Cynthia Erivo), whose uncanny abilities he hopes will help explain the unexplainable.
 
  • Immediately following the double-episode premiere of THE OUTSIDER, don’t miss the debut of new Crave original series CRAVINGS: THE AFTERSHOW (11 p.m. ET). Hosted by pop culture maven, author, and podcaster Lainey Lui (THE SOCIAL, ETALK) and a rotating panel of guests, this new weekly companion series recaps episodes of THE OUTSIDER, dissecting the biggest plot twists and developments, and providing comprehensive analysis.
  January 13 – HBO’s THE NEW POPE *Series Premiere* (9 p.m. ET)
  • The follow-up to 2017’s THE YOUNG POPE from Oscar®-winning filmmaker Paolo Sorrentino, THE NEW POPE starring John Malkovich and Jude Law, dives into the inner workings of the Vatican, while exploring the very human desires, vices and fragilities of those in power and the complexities inherent in faith today. All nine episodes of THE NEW POPE are directed by Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Paolo Sorrentino.
  January 19 – HBO’s CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM, *Season 10 Premiere* (10:30 p.m. ET)
  • HBO’s iconic Emmy®-and Golden Globe-winning comedy series CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM returns for a tenth season, starring writer/producer/comedian Larry David as an over-the-top version of himself in an unsparing but tongue-in-cheek depiction of his fictionalized life. With cast regulars Jeff Garlin (as manager Jeff Greene), Susie Essman (as Jeff’s wife Susie), Cheryl Hines (as Larry’s ex-wife Cheryl), JB Smoove (as Larry’s live-in friend Leon) and Richard Lewis (as Larry’s long-suffering best friend Richard) reprising their roles, the series continues to feature appearances by guests playing themselves or characters. New episodes also include returning favorites Ted Danson and Saverio Guerra. This season, Larry gets into a series of escalating predicaments as he takes on a major project to spite a new adversary – an undertaking that proves to be more complicated than he anticipated.
  Starting January 5 – POWER Season 2 *The Final 5 Episodes* (10 p.m. ET)
  • As the series heads into the last few episodes of the extended final season, the new trailer examines the top seven suspects in the shooting of James “Ghost” St. Patrick, giving new insights into the motives and mindset of each of the potential assailants. POWER returns Jan. 5 at 10 p.m. ET, only on Crave.
  January 10 – HEALTHY IS HOT *Crave Original Series Premiere*
  • The series showcases Wilde’s journey– from Vancouver Island, B.C. to Ottawa and Toronto – as she tackles fears, indulges in new foods, gives back to charity, and more. Each episode is dedicated to learning and practicing different elements that promote personal growth and make up a healthy lifestyle, while providing an open and supportive discussion about difficult subjects like the importance of mental health and the real effects of climate change. All six episodes drop Friday, Jan. 10, only on Crave.
  January 24 SHRILL, Season 2 *Season Premiere*
  • After facing her demons – her mom, her boss and, of course, her troll – Annie (Aidy Bryant “GIRLS”) starts the season feelings pretty good with boyfriend Ryan by her side. That is, until she realized that hastily quitting her job and jumping into a relationship with someone who is, well, a little less career-focused may not have been the best idea. SHRILL Season 2 drops Jan. 24, only on Crave.
