Toronto — April 22, 2019

MUST-WATCH TITLES FOR MAY
May 3 – SHRILL *Season 1* (Six Episodes)

  • The six-episode first season of the critically acclaimed comedy series SHRILL drops on Friday, May 3. Co-executive produced, co-written, and starring Aidy Bryant as Annie, a fat young woman who wants to change her life, but not her body. Annie is trying to start her career as she juggles bad boyfriends, a sick parent, and a perfectionist boss, while weighing the pros and cons of having a child with her hook-up buddy. The series also hails from Lorne Michaels, Elizabeth Banks, Alexandra Rushfield, and Lindy West.

May 19 – GAME OF THRONES *Series Finale* (9 p.m. ET)

  • In the epitome of event television, Canada kicks off the first long weekend of the summer with the epic 120-min series finale of GAME OF THRONES on Sunday, May 19. The Season 8 premiere episode recently broke Canadian viewership records, with 9 million Canadians tuning in across Crave’s linear, on demand, and streaming platforms.

As a bonus to fans, the HBO documentary GAME OF THRONES: THE LAST WATCH debuts a week after the big finale, on Sunday, May 26 at 9 p.m. ET. The two-hour documentary is directed by acclaimed British filmmaker Jeanie Finlay and chronicles the making of the final season, the series’ most ambitious and complicated. With unprecedented access to the production, the special delves deep to reveal the tears and triumphs involved in bringing the fantasy world of Westeros to life in very real studios, fields, and car-parks located in Northern Ireland.

May 6 – CHERNOBYL *HBO Miniseries Premiere* (Mondays 9 p.m. ET) 

  • Based on the 1986 nuclear accident, CHERNOBYL tells the story of the brave men and women who made incredible sacrifices to save Europe from unimaginable disaster. Jared Harris portrays Valery Legasov, a leading Soviet nuclear physicist, Stellan Skarsgård plays Soviet Deputy Prime Minister Boris Shcherbina, and Emily Watson stars as Ulana Khomyuk, a Soviet nuclear physicist committed to solving the mystery of what led to the disaster. The five-part miniseries was written, created, and executive produced by Craig Mazin and directed by Johan Renck.

  • This two-part HBO Sports documentary chronicles the extraordinary life of one of the 20th century’s most iconic figures, exploring his challenges, confrontations, and comebacks through recordings of his own voice. The film paints an intimate portrait of a man who was a beacon of hope for oppressed people around the world and, in his later years, was recognized as a global citizen and a symbol of humanity and understanding. From executive producers LeBron James and Maverick Carter and Antoine Fuqua who serves as director and executive producer.

May 28 – RUNNING WITH BETO *HBO Documentary Premiere* (8 p.m. ET)

  • Winner of an Audience Award at SXSW earlier this year, David Modigliani’s behind-the-scenes documentary RUNNING WITH BETO follows Democratic Congressman Beto O’Rourke’s rise from virtual unknown to national political sensation.

May 24 – BROCKMIRE *Season 3* (Eight Episodes)

  • The eight-episode third season of the critically acclaimed comedy series BROCKMIRE drops on Friday, May 24.

Guest stars for Season 3 include J.K. Simmons, Martha Plimpton, Linda Lavin, and Baseball Hall of Fame inductee George Brett. Season three takes place three months after his stint in rehab, with Brockmire doing play-by-play in the radio booth for the major leagues in central Florida during spring training while maintaining his brazen and narcissistic tendencies, despite actually being on the wagon.
