From major new dramas featuring Olivia Colman and Stephen Graham to Peter Jackson’s Beatles series and the return of Succession, here are the must-see shows for the coming months

Angela Black

ITV, date tbc

ITV has a reputation for delivering taut, female-led psychological thrillers, and Angela Black fits right in. In six parts, written by Harry and Jack Williams (The Missing; Liar), it stars Joanne Froggatt in the title role, as a woman in a seemingly idyllic marriage, but whose husband (Michiel Huisman) is secretly abusive. When she’s approached by a private investigator (Samuel Adewunmi), will she finally break free? With themes echoing Sky Atlantic’s Big Little Lies, this could be compelling viewing. Barbara Ellen

Mary Elizabeth Winstead Is Down to Return as Huntress, Will She Be Back in Black Canary?
Mary Elizabeth Winstead, who is currently busy promoting her upcoming Netflix action thriller, Kate, is open to reprising her role as Huntress in the DC Extended Universe. Winstead debuted as Helena Bertinelli, a crossbow-wielding assassin in 2020's Birds of Prey. Winstead's take on the character was praised by most fans, and she was a standout character in the film. But with Birds of Prey underperforming at the box office, plans for a sequel and a Gotham City Sirens movie were put on hold indefinitely.

But recently, HBO Max announced a solo Black Canary movie starring Jurnee Smollet-Bell, leading many to believe that the characters of Birds of Prey may not be done just yet. Speaking to Collider, Winstead talked about the Black Canary movie and expressed her desire to play Huntress again. Here is what she said.

"I love her, too! I'm super excited about the Black Canary movie. I love Jurnee,

Mary Elizabeth Winstead Is a ‘Total Killer Babe’ Assassin in ‘Kate’ Trailer (Video)
Mary Elizabeth Winstead is the latest star to go all John Wick on everyone in the room for her new film “Kate,” and even her partner in crime can see she’s a “total killer babe.”

Winstead in “Kate” plays an assassin in Tokyo on what is to be her last job to take down the Yakuza kingpin. She finds that she’s been poisoned and now has less than 24 hours to live. In that time she locates a young Japanese girl who can help her track down her mark and figure out who set her up to die.

“Kate, you’re like that person in a nightmare, take no s— from no dudes, you’re scary,” the girl played by newcomer Miku Martineau says in the trailer. She even at one point threatens some mobsters by saying that even with 20 of them, they’re all about to die, and “you’re outnumbered.

Kate Trailer: A Poisoned Mary Elizabeth Winstead Hunts Down Her Yakuza Killers

Kate Trailer: A Poisoned Mary Elizabeth Winstead Hunts Down Her Yakuza Killers
Netflix continues its new-found love for action movies with a new trailer for the upcoming revenge thriller, Kate. While not much footage from the movie has been revealed until now, the marketing so far has already had action movie fans talking, with many comparing lead star Mary Elizabeth Winstead to other female action movie icons such as Ripley and Sarah Connor. Comparisons which the new trailer certainly helps cement.

Kate stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead as the titular character, Kate, an assassin whose world is thrown into disarray when she discovers she has just hours left to live. After finding out that she has been irreversibly poisoned, the ruthless criminal operative known as Kate has less than 24 hours to exact revenge on her enemies and in the process forms an unexpected bond with the daughter of one of her past victims.

‘Kate’ Trailer: Mary Elizabeth Winstead Has 24 Hours to Get Revenge in Netflix Assassin Thriller

‘Kate’ Trailer: Mary Elizabeth Winstead Has 24 Hours to Get Revenge in Netflix Assassin Thriller
Mary Elizabeth Winstead has already showed that she’s more than capable of leading an action movie, thanks to her supporting role as Huntress in the DC Comics tentpole “Birds of Prey,” and now she’s getting the star vehicle she deserves with Netflix’s ticking-clock assassin thriller “Kate.” Winstead stars in the eponymous role opposite Woody Harrelson. The movie was helmed by French director Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, perhaps best known to U.S. audiences for directing the “Snow White and the Hunstman” sequel “The Huntsman: Winter’s War.”

The official synopsis for “Kate” from Netflix reads: “Meticulous and preternaturally skilled, Kate is the perfect specimen of a finely tuned assassin at the height of her game. But when she uncharacteristically blows an assignment targeting a member of the yakuza in Tokyo, she quickly discovers she’s been poisoned, a brutally slow execution that gives her less than 24 hours to exact revenge on her killers.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead Kicks Ass in Action Film 'Kate' Official Trailer

Mary Elizabeth Winstead Kicks Ass in Action Film 'Kate' Official Trailer
"Kate, you're like that person in that nightmare - take no sh*t from no dudes." Netflix has unveiled the first official trailer for a new action movie called Kate, the latest feature made by the VFX supervisor-turned-director Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, who last directed the sequel The Huntsman: Winter's War. There’s no time for mercy. After she's poisoned, a ruthless criminal operative has less than 24 hours to exact revenge on her enemies and in the process forms an unexpected bond with the daughter of one of her past victims. This seems like a killer action concept mashing up Kill Bill and Jolt with Gunpowder Milkshake, but with Mary Elizabeth Winstead starring as the action badass Kate in this one. In addition to Mew, the impressive full cast also includes Tadanobu Asano, Miyavi, Michiel Huisman, plus Jun Kunimura and Woody Harrelson, and introducing Miku Martineau. The best thing about this is that it's set in Japan.

Final Emmy Nomination Predictions: Beyond ‘Ted Lasso’ and ‘The Crown,’ Some Obvious and Some Ridiculous Picks
The Emmy initial voting phase is over, pencils are down and now we wait for nominations to be announced on July 13. A few final predictions for major categories, most of which you’ll agree with, and a few I decided to have a little fun with. First, the major series categories:

Hacks” (HBO Max)

The Flight Attendant” (HBO Max)

Pen15” (Hulu)

The Kominsky Method” (Netflix)

Black-ish” (ABC)

Girls5eva” (Peacock)

Cobra Kai” (Netflix)

What a year for HBO Max, with two major comedy contenders (boasting standout female leads) in “Hacks” and “The Flight Attendant.” The comedy front-runner remains “Ted Lasso,” but I still contend that the category is more interesting and competitive than the conventional wisdom that says this is an off year. It’s been great to see “Pen15,” which started out as a tiny, low-budget show for Hulu, get its due. And
