'Ordeal by Innocence' is scheduled to begin airing on August 10 and will be a 3-episode limited series based on the novel of the same name by acclaimed crime fiction author Agatha Christie. It will follow the Argyll family after a man claims that the black sheep of the family, Jack Argyll, didn’t murder its tyrannical matriarch and follows the family as they come to terms with Jack’s innocence and the fact that one of them may be the real murderer.
The first season of 'All or Nothing: Manchester City' will follow the team’s legendary coach, Pep Guardiola and the stories that unfold within the players’ lives. It chronicles Manchester City’s record-shattering 2017/18 league season from the world-leading training facilities to interviews with the manager and executive meetings. A release date is yet to be determined.
'The Stinky & Dirty Show' is a prime original series based books by Jim and Kate McMullan with original music from Dan Bern and featuring celebrity voices like Mark Hamill (Spacey), Jane Lynch, Andy Richter, Joan Cusack and Wallace Shawn. Season 2 sees the return of best friends Stinky and Dirty as they lend a helping wheel to their vehicle friends in Go City. The series will begin airing from August 14.
John Krasinski will star in 'Jack Ryan's Tom Clancy,' a modern reinvention of the famed and lauded Tom Clancy hero. The series will center on Jack Ryan, a CIA analyst who is thrust into his first dangerous field assignment and uncovers a terrorist communication pattern in which he’s faced with a new breed of global threatening terrorism. You can catch the thriller beginning August 31.
Amazon describes 'Gringo' as "a dark comedy mixed with white-knuckle action and dramatic intrigue." Starring David Oyelowo, Charlize Theron, and Joel Edgerton, the movie will explore the battle of survival for businessman Harold Soyinka when he finds himself crossing the line from law-abiding citizen to wanted criminal. 'Gringo' will hit the platform on August 17.
In addition to Prime Originals, licensed TV series coming to the service next month include seasons 1-2 of Lifetime’s docu-series 'True Tori' and season 1 of A&E’s reality series, 'Billy the Exterminator.'
