What's on NOW TV Entertainment | February 2021
Check out our top picks from NOW TV's excellent Entertainment selection.
The NOW TV Entertainment pass allows you to stream some of the most entertaining, acclaimed box sets from both the UK and the US from the comfort of your sofa. Here’s our pick of the best new additions coming this month.
ZeroZeroZero season 1
The global cocaine trade is the subject of this hugely addictive drama from Gomorrah director Stefano Sollima. It focuses on three major groups in the drug’s circulation, the violent Mexican cartel who produce it, the powerful Italian crime family who distribute it around the world and the Americans who broker the deal between the two.
Despite its ambitious scope, there’s incredibly compelling characters and gripping drama across all three groups. There’s plenty of explosive action on the Mexican side, an intriguing mafia drama as power hungry Stefano (Giuseppe De Domenico) plots to take over and Emma’s (Andrea Riseborough) tense struggle to navigate a huge shipment to Italy.
The Blacklist season 8
Fans of this enjoyably twisty crime thriller will be pleased to know that it’s set to return for a full-length season this February. The COVID-19 pandemic unfortunately cut its last outing short by three episodes and saw the second half of the finale episode shot in animated comic book style.
According to executive producer John Eisendrath, season 8 “starts in a much more heightened and dramatic place than normal” as FBI profiler Liz (Megan Boone) begins her mission to destroy criminal mastermind Red (James Spader) after betraying him to align with her mother, former KGB officer Katarina (Laila Robins).
2 Dope Queens season 2
Following the incredible success of their now defunct podcast of the same name, which debuted at number one on the Itunes podcast chart upon its release in 2016, US comedians Jessica Williams and Phoebe Robinson brought four more fantastically funny, insightful comedy specials to TV.
Each episode sees Williams and Robinson, who share a sparkling chemistry which results in sharp banter, discuss all manner of topics before introducing a guest. This season will include Lupita Nyong’o, Daniel Radcliffe, Janet Mock, Lizzo and Keegan-Michael Key.
SEAL Team season 4
Sky’s SEAL Team, which follows an elite group of US Navy SEALS known as the Bravo unit, is the perfect slice of escapist entertainment for these chilly winter nights. The script is surprisingly solid, if somewhat predictable, allowing for some great characters and explosive action.
Season 4 picks up with the Bravo team, consisting of Jason Hayes (David Boreanaz), Clay Spenser (Max Thieriot), Ray Perry (Neil Brown Jr), Sonny Quinn (AJ Buckley), Lisa Davis (Toni Trucks) and Eric Blackburn (Judd Lomand), on an important mission in Afghanistan to capture Al-Hazred, the leader of a dangerous terrorist group.
Devils season 1
This slick new Italian import, which is based on the 2014 novel of the same name by Guido Maria Brera, is set in the high-stakes world of finance. While that might not sound particularly thrilling it’s bursting with more than enough dark drama, power plays and twisted scheming to make it an addictive watch.
The charismatic but ruthless trader Massimo Ruggero (Alessandro Borghi) is unexpectedly passed over for a promotion by his long time mentor Dominic (Patrick Dempsey). When that rival Ed (Ben Miles) is suddenly murdered, Ruggero becomes caught up in a much larger, more dangerous conspiracy.
