What’s Premiering?

Uma Thurman and Tony Goldwyn in Netflix’s “Chambers”

“Chambers” (Netflix)

Today, Netflix drops this supernatural thriller series. “Chambers” was created with Leah Rachel and stars Uma Thurman, Tony Goldwyn, and Sivan Alyra Rose. The series centers around a young woman who receives a heart transplant only to find her personality slowly changing. Thurman and Goldwyn play the parents of the deceased girl whose heart is still living in its new recipient. Based off of Netflix’s previous horror series, this one should be a scream.

“The Protector” (Netflix)

“The Protector’s” second season is available for streaming today, only four months after the series’ first season premiered in December. The series is a Turkish fantasy drama that follows a young man who discovers he is connected to an ancient order. With this knowledge, he must protect Istanbul from “the Immortals.” Çağatay Ulusoy stars as Hakan, our hero, in this fast-paced adventure that breathes life into another world.

Movies on TV

“The Shawshank Redemption” (POP) at 7 PM and 10:30 PM

Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman star in this classic. Released in 1994, “The Shawshank Redemption” is based on the 1982 Stephen King novel. The story is about a man (Robbins) who is accused and convicted of murdering his wife and her lover and then sentenced to life in prison. During his time behind bars, he forms a bond with a fellow prisoner (Freeman) that transcends time and place. The film was nominated for seven academy awards, including Best Picture of the Year. It is thought to be one of the best films of the 1990s.

The guys from “American Pie”

“American Pie” (CMT) at 7:30 PM

Released in 1999, “American Pie” joined the pantheon of teen movies. The raunchy comedy follows a group of teenage boys in the weeks leading up to their school prom. They make a pact to all lose their virginity on the night of the big dance. What sets this film apart from most is the girls are just as horny as the boys. The film stars Jason Biggs (Netflix’s “Orange is the New Black”), Chris Klein (“Election”(1999)), Alyson Hannigan (TV’s “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “How I Met Your Mother”) and Seann William Scott (TV’s “Lethal Weapon”). This film is still just as fun twenty years later!
