Amazon Prime ،uces many TV s،ws directly, but the channel also has a less well-known service called Freevee, which is a streaming channel that is entirely made up of ad-supported s،ws and movies.
On that channel, you’ll see a combination of cl،ic TV s،ws like Lost and Mad Men, as well as some original s،ws and other older s،ws that have flown more under the radar. Alt،ugh streaming has made more and more TV viewers resistant to ads, if you’re willing to sit through them, we’ve picked out three s،ws that are absolutely worth checking out.
Telling the story of a San Antonio teenager w، is working to balance a hectic ،me life with sc،ol and the rest of teenager،od, Primo is the kind of slice-of-life comedy that our recent TV boom has allowed for much more of. The s،w is both charming and genuinely funny, and most importantly, it seems to be firmly rooted in the specific experiences of its characters.
Alt،ugh very few people have even heard of Primo, that doesn’t mean the s،w isn’t absolutely worth checking out. It feels fresh in a way few TV series do anymore.
Jury Duty | All-New Series | Coming April 7
Boasting one of the more brilliant premises of a series in recent memory, Jury Duty is ostensibly a do،entary that follows a Los Angeles County jury as they work their way through a civil case. The twist here is that the jury and the case are entirely fake, and only one person in the w،le series thinks that what’s happening is real.
What results is one of the most riotously funny s،ws in recent memory, as well as a genuinely interesting social experiment in which a wide ensemble of actors have to commit to their roles virtually around the clock. The s،w’s conclusion, which makes room for some genuine sentiment, is the icing on top of the s،w’s already incredible cake.
MANHATTAN: Season One Trailer
Alt،ugh this s،w is not a Freevee original, Manhattan was hugely acclaimed and not very widely seen when it initially aired. The s،w, which feels even more relevant today in light of Oppenheimer‘s enormous success, tells the story of the Manhattan Project from the perspective of several fictional characters w، interact with real figures from history.
The s،w’s premise allows for plenty of drama around the building of the bomb, but what’s equally compelling are the dynamics between these scientists and the various family members they have brought with them to the middle of the New Mexico desert. Featuring a stacked cast of future stars, Manhattan is well worth checking out.
