We’ve rounded up new and noteworthy titles from Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV Plus, CBC Gem, Crave and Disney Plus in Canada for the next few weeks. (And, if that’s not enough, here’s our list of every new title coming to Netflix this month.)

New to Amazon Prime Video

One Night in Miami…

Turns out Regina King really can do everything. Her directorial debut is a fictionalized account of real-life friends Malcolm X, Jim Brown and Sam Cooke, who get together to celebrate Muhammed Ali’s win in the ring against Sonny Liston—the fight that made him a household name. January 15

 

Flack

If you powered through Emily in Paris in a single sitting, you might appreciate this 2019 British dramedy series starring Anna Paquin as an American publicist who moves to London. It has everything, minus the appetizing French pastries: high-strung boss, incompetent co-workers and troublesome non-PC clients. Plus, if you can’t get enough, the second season is due out later this year. January 22

The High Note

In this musical comedy, Tracee Ellis Ross plays a version of her mother, Diana Ross, starring as a successful superstar approaching a mid-career slump.

January 1 

 

Monkey Beach

Based on Eden Robinson’s debut novel of the same name, this drama follows a young First Nations woman in British Columbia endowed with the ability to communicate with spirits.

WandaVision

Marvel’s trippy sci-fi miniseries takes place following the events of Avengers: Endgame. Superheroes Wanda Maximoff and Vision, played by Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany, get married and move to a suburban town to forget their past.
