Not to be forgotten among our modern-day cavalcade of streaming services and premium pay-cable channels is Showtime, another quality way to entertain your food-stuffed loved ones this Thanksgiving season. With that in mind, here are all of the movies, TV series, documentaries, comedy specials and streaming collections coming to the channel in November.
As far as feature films are concerned, Showtime is landing a couple of classics next month, including Quentin Tarantino-penned crime thriller True Romance, Oscar-winning Ray Charles biopic Ray, slapstick Chris Farley action-comedy Beverly Hills Ninja, Randall Wallace’s Vietnam war drama We Were Soldiers, John Slattery’s directorial debut God’s Pocket, and, for those of us who just can’t let Halloween go, a pair of films from the Child’s Play franchise.
Showtime is also adding new episodes of several original series in November, including Jay Pharoah’s White Famous, which debuted on Oct. 15, as well as the series premieres of half-hour comedy SMILF (Nov. 5) and six-part BBC show Ill Behaviour (Nov. 13). Shameless, arguably Showtime’s most beloved original series, kicks off its eighth season on Sunday, Nov. 5, while Active Shooter: America Under Fire and A Season With Navy Football (which has previously followed Florida State and Notre Dame) will continue their first and third seasons, respectively.
That brings us to the channel’s docs, comedy specials and streaming collections: Comedy fans can look forward to Lavell Crawford’s Home for the Holidays, while music lovers can get excited about Tim & Faith: Soul2Soul, a documentary on Tim McGraw and Faith Hill’s 2017 Soul2Soul world tour. The streaming collections have a little something for everyone, whether your film tastes revolve around the Western genre, films set in California, or John Cusack’s oeuvre.
