Best Series on Stan in August 2021

Dr Death

Finally, some good gory content. Based on Wondery’s hit podcast, Dr. Death is the terrifying true crime story of Dr. Christopher Duntsch. Joshua Jackson plays the titular role of the flourishing neurosurgeon who unexpectedly turns evil. When patients enter his operating room for complex but routine spinal surgeries and leave permanently maimed, Alec Baldwin and Christian Slater get on the case. Chilling.

Release date: August 2021

Chapelwaite

Based on Stephen King’s 1978 short story Jerusalem’s Lot, Chapelwaite looks to be a wild ride. It stars Oscar-winner Adrien Brody as Charles Boone, a captain who chooses to relocate his family of three children to his ancestral home in the small, seemingly sleepy town of Preacher’s Corners, Maine after his wife dies at sea. Insert a boatload of family secrets and glooming colour-grading in trademark spooky style.

Release date: 23 August 2021

Heels

Small town pro-wrestling. There’s literally nothing else we need to say, but nevertheless, we’ll regale you. This new Stan show follows the men and women who chase their dreams inside the ring. Set in a close-knit Georgia community, it follows a family-owned wrestling promotion as two brothers and rivals war over their late father’s legacy. Most interestingly, it touches on the dynamic between good and evil in the characters they play. It’s no D-Generation X but Heels still looks top-rope good.

Release date: 15 August 2021

Power Book III: Raising Kanan

Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson’s all-badass series returns for another incarnation, and this one looks good. Set in South Jamaica, Queens in 1991, Power Book III: Raising Kanan is the prequel to the original Power series. This time around it is a sprawling family drama that revolves around the coming of age of Kanan Stark, Ghost and Tommy’s mentor, partner and adversary, who ultimately dies in a hail of gunfire in the eighth episode of the penultimate season of Power.

Release date: August 2021

The L Word: Generation Q – Season 2

The spinoff returns. Based on the groundbreaking drama series The L Word, Generation Q tackles new issues, identity crises and some erotic fruit play.

Release date: 7 August 2021

The Godfather of Harlem – Season 2

This show is sick. Inspired by the true story of crime boss Bumpy Johnson, who in the early 1960’s, returns home from ten years in prison and must fight to regain control of the streets he once ruled. Forest Whitaker’s breathtaking performance as the returned street soldier is brutal and unforgiving, matched only by the addition of some powerhouse stars. Daredevil‘s Vincent D’Onofrio, Breaking Bad‘s Giancarlo Esposito and Selma‘s Nigel Thatch come close to stealing the show.

Release date: 10 August 2021

Black Monday

Don Cheadle and Regina Hall team up for this Wall Street trading series. Exploring the stories of the Jammer Group firm in the year leading up to Oct. 19, 1987, viewers watch the real-life global stock market crash play out in real time.

Release date: 1 August 2021

Blingspotting

Picking up six months after the film, the Blingspotting series centres on Ashley. Nipping at the heels of middle-class life in Oakland, Ashley’s partner Miles is suddenly incarcerated, leaving her to navigate a chaotic and humorous existential crisis when she is forced to move in with Miles’ mother and half-sister.

Release date: 8 August 2021

Miracle Workers – Season 3

If you haven’t watched this one yet, you’re in for a treat. An unexpected hit, Miracle Workers sees cult favourites Daniel Radcliffe and Steve Buscemi at their absolute best. The third season of the acclaimed anthology comedy series transports the cast to America’s Old West. Set in the year 1844, the new season will follow an idealistic small-town preacher (Radcliffe) who teams up with a wanted outlaw (Buscemi) and an adventurous prairie wife (Viswanathan) to lead a wagon train west on the Oregon Trail across an American landscape. Hilarity ensues.

Release date: August 2021

RuPaul Drag Race: All Stars – Season 6

The show everyone pretends not to love is back again. Season 6 of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars is pretty much a rinse and repeat of the past five, but my god is it watchable. And with names like Ginger Minj and Silky Nutmeg Ganache, how could you not tune in?

Release date: August 2021

Best Movies on Stan in August 2021

Survive The Night

If you told us in 2009 that Bruce Willis and Chad Michael Murray would be teaming up for an action flick, we’d be pumped. In 2021, not so much but still, some Bruce Willis is better than no Bruce Willis at all. Survive The Night follows two criminals who are involved in an attempted garage that goes terribly wrong. A trauma doctor is forced to operate on a wounded gunman as he and his family are held hostage by the man and his unhinged brother.

Release date: 6 August 2021

Trauma Centre

Remember way back when we said some Bruce Willis is better than no Bruce Willis? Turns out you can absolutely have too much Bruce Willis. In Stan’s second new flick from the action legend, an injured young woman must escape a pair of vicious killers who are after the only piece of evidence that can implicate them in a grisly murder: the bullet in her leg. Ridiculous? Yes, but it’s got Aussie golden girl Nicky Whelan so we’re in.
