Highlights This Week
- HBO’s new half-hour drama series, I MAY DESTROY YOU created by and starring Michaela Coel (CHEWING GUM), is a fearless, frank, and provocative series that explores the question of sexual consent in contemporary life and how, in the new landscape of dating and relationships, we make the distinction between liberation and exploitation. The new series premieres June 7 at 10:30 p.m. ET.
- The queens are sashaying back to the runway to compete in the fifth season of RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE ALL STARS premiering June 5 at 9:30 p.m. ET. Viewers will get the chance to see some of their favourites from previous seasons act, sing, dance, sew, and lip sync for their legacy. The last queen standing will waltz away with the “All Stars” crown, a spot in the “Drag Race Hall of Fame,” and a cash prize of $100,000.
- In celebration of Pride Month 2020, the featured film for this week’s Crave and TIFF Stay-at-Home Cinema initiative is Jennie Livingston’s 1990 documentary PARIS IS BURNING, with guest to be confirmed. The livestream will take place Friday, June 5 at 7 pm. ET at tiff.net and then the film will be available to stream on Crave. The film is also included in the LGBTQ x Inside Out Collection on Crave.
- All eight episodes of the third season of the award-winning drama KILLING EVE drop on Crave June 5. Season 3 continues the story of two women with brutal pasts, addicted to each other but now trying desperately to live their lives without their drug of choice. For Villanelle (Jodie Comer), the assassin without a job, Eve (Sandra Oh) is dead. For Eve, the ex-MI6 operative hiding in plain sight, Villanelle will never find her. All seems fine until a shocking and personal death sets them on a collision course yet again. The journey back to each other will cost both of them friends, family, and allegiances…and perhaps a share of their souls.
- The sci-fi drama LUCY IN THE SKY joins Crave on June 5, and follows the story of astronaut Lucy Cola (Natalie Portman) when she returns to Earth after a transcendent experience during a mission to space, and begins to lose touch with reality in a world that now seems too small.
