Amazon Prime Video will be hoping the heatwave subsides in August, when two of their biggest shows of the year are set to land.
First up is All or Nothing: Manchester City, a behind-the-scenes look at Pep Guardiola’s team’s 2017/2018 season. It should serve as a strong precursor to the streaming service’s foray into live Premier League football in 2019.
Then, from the other side of the Atlantic, comes Jack Ryan, a fast-paced drama series adapted from Tom Clancy’s novels. It stars the very in-demand John Krasinski as the titular action hero.
Find out everything you need to know about the shows coming to Amazon Prime Video in August below.
Wednesday 1st August: Casual – season 4
The final season of the family drama from Juno scribe Jason Reitman. It stars Michaela Watkins as middle-aged psychiatrist Valerie, who moves in with her brother Alex (Tommy Dewey) – with her teenage daughter Laura (Tara Lynne Barr) in tow – after finding out her husband is sleeping with a younger woman. It looks set to wrap a neat little bow on the show’s run, as Alex prepares to have a child, and Valerie and Laura reunite after the latter had left town to live with her grandmother.
Friday 17th August: All or Nothing – Manchester City
Take a look behind the scenes at the Etihad during the title-winning 2017/18 season.
Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley narrates this eight-part series, which will give fans an insight into the workings of the team – featuring inspirational dressing room talks from the maestro Pep Guardiola – as they march towards their third Premier League title.
Friday 31st August: Jack Ryan – season 1
The Office’s John Krasinski is the unlikely action hero at the centre of this Tom Clancy adaptation. Ryan, a former soldier, is dragged back into action from his desk job at the CIA when he uncovers a pattern in terrorist communication that reveals a major new threat to the USA.
