From Pennyworth To The Stand And More
Starzplay has a range of genre shows and films on this month and here’s a list of what they have on…
28 FEBRUARY A year after the explosive events of last season, England finds itself embroiled in a devastating civil war, with the powerful, neo-fascist Raven Union, led by Lord Harwood threatening to control the entire country. North London remains one of the few resistance holdouts remaining. It’s here in the West End Neutral Zone, that we find Alfred Pennyworth. After years in the British Army, his training with the SAS has taught him to be a cynical optimist –expecting the worst, but knowing that he can handle it. Now running The Delaney, a black-market Soho club that welcomes everyone, regardless of their politics, Alfred, with his SAS mates, “Bazza” and “Daveboy,” is now in search of a way out –before London, and his country, burns itself to the ground. And he’s got his eye on America.
Season 1 is now available.

THE STAND SEASON FINALE – 28 FEBRUARY
“The Stand” is Stephen King’s apocalyptic vision of a world decimated by plague and embroiled in an elemental struggle between good and evil. The fate of mankind rests on the frail shoulders of the 108-year-old Mother Abagail (Whoopi Goldberg) and a handful of survivors. Their worst nightmares are embodied in a man with a lethal smile and unspeakable powers: Randall Flagg (Alexander Skarsgård), the Dark Man.
NEW EPISODE EVERY SUNDAY
THE HEAD 7 FEBRUARY A select group of scientists from several different countries are in charge of maintaining the base operational during the long polar nights. But in the midst of winter, the station suddenly stops communicating with the outside world.
NEW EPISODE EVERY SUNDAY
“Ambitions” explores the sexy, deceitful machinations of love, power and politics in America’s hottest urban mecca, Atlanta, Georgia. The action revolves around the intense rivalry between formidable legal eagles Stephanie Carlisle Lancaster (Robin Givens) and Amara Hughes (Essence Atkins), former best friends from college who find themselves adversaries in both their personal and professional lives.
BLACK SAILS S1-S4
“Black Sails,” centres on the tales of Captain Flint and his notorious crew fighting for the survival of New Providence Island.
POWER BOOK II: GHOST
“Power Book II: Ghost” picks up shortly after the earth-shattering events of “Power” and follows Tariq St. Patrick (Michael Rainey, Jr.) as he navigates his new life and his desire to shed his father’s legacy intertwines with the mounting pressure to save his family, including his mother Tasha (Naturi Naughton), who is facing charges for the murder her son committed. Not to mention the academic rigors of the Ivy League university Tariq is attending to earn his inheritance. Truly on his own for the first time in his life, Tariq is forced to split his time between school and hustling to pay for Davis MacLean (Clifford “Method Man” Smith), the fame-hungry defense lawyer who is Tasha’s only hope of getting out of jail and escaping prosecution by newly minted U.S. Attorney Cooper Saxe (Shane Johnson). With no better options, Tariq turns to the familiar drug game, entangling himself with a cutthroat family headed by Monet Stewart Tejada (Mary J. Blige), that’s been at it far longer than him. As Tariq tries to balance his drug operation with his grades, love life, and family, he figures out that the only way to avoid the same fate his father met is to become him — only better.
Ramy Hassan is a first generation Egyptian-American who is on a spiritual journey in his politically-divided New Jersey neighborhood. “Ramy” will bring a new perspective to the screen as it explores the challenges of what it’s like being caught between a Muslim community that thinks life is a moral test and a millennial generation that thinks life has no consequences.
Down deep in the Mississippi Delta lies an oasis of grit and glitter in a rough patch of human existence where beauty can be hard to find. This Southern-fried, hour-long drama tells the kaleidoscopic story of a “little strip club that could” and the big characters who come through its doors — the hopeful, the lost, the broken, the ballers, the beautiful and the damned. Trap music meets film noir in this lyrical and atmospheric series that dares to ask what happens when small-town folk dream beyond the boundaries of the Piggly Wiggly and the pawnshop.
THE GREAT S1
“The Great” is a satirical, comedic drama – based on the occasional historical fact – about the rise of Catherine the Great from outsider to the longest reigning female ruler in Russia’s history. A very modern story about the past.

A vengeful father escapes from hell and chases after the men who killed his daughter and kidnapped his granddaughter.
THE NUTTY PROFESSOR

The provocative real story of three smart, ambitious, strong women who anchored one of America’s top news networks—and risked everything to stand up to the man who made them.
