Sky Cinema and Now have announced everything new coming to in March.
It feels like a long time since the travails of Joe Exotic were the most talked about topic in the world. Almost two years later, the first of several projects aiming to cash in on the story has arrived, with filmmaker John Cameron Mitchell and comedy star Kate McKinnon playing nemeses Exotic and Carole Baskin in the new series JOE vs CAROLE.
Elsewhere on Sky UK and NOW this month, there's yet another Liam Neeson action outing and the return of the comedy series Bloods, as well as documentaries about opera singing, Mother Teresa and the ill-fated football initiative known as the European Super League.
Of course, NOW offers the chance to purchase one of its bespoke memberships, reflecting the sort of stuff you want to watch. For movie lovers, there's the NOW Cinema Membership, while telly junkies can buy the NOW Entertainment Membership and sports fans have the NOW Sports Membership available.
