  • Disney Plus rollerskating comedy comes to streaming on Saturday, March 25

This Disney production debuts on the Disney Channel on March 24 before rolling onto streaming the day after.

Saturdays is a rollerskating coming-of-age story about an all-girls skate crew who work to be famous at rollerskating, operating out of their local rink caled 'Saturdays' in Chicago, all while dealing with their everyday lives. 

Two episodes are releasing weekly every week until April 28.

Great Expectations

  • Hulu & iPlayer enjoy new Dickens adaptation from Sunday, March 26

What the Dickens is this?

Great Expectations is another adaptation of the classic Charlies Dickens book, this starring Olivia Colman, which is about a young boy trying to become a man in the shadow of the haunting Miss Havisham.

Steven Knight, of Peaky Blinders fame, leads the adaptation, so we've high hopes for it.

Great Expectations was co-produced between the BBC and FX, which means it's being released on both sides of the Atlantic at once. You can watch it on BBC's iPlayer in the UK and Hulu in the US, as it's streaming at the same time as it's being put on live TV, and episodes are releasing weekly.

Succession season 4

  • HBO Max drama series debuts new season on Sunday, March 26, and day later on Sky in UK

The HBO dark comedy-drama about a media mogul and his family’s quest to take over control of the company enters its fourth and final season. 

For Logan Roy (Brian Cox), he might be calling the shots with regard to his empire but the decisions he made at the end of season 3 left his children — Kendall (Jeremy Strong), Shiv (Sarah Snook) and Roman (Kieran Culkin) — on the other side of the battlefield. 

In Succession season 4, the fight for control of WaystarRoyco is on, and there will most certainly be casualties on both sides. You can stream it on HBO Max in the US, and it comes to Sky TV in the UK a day later.

Rabbit Hole

  • Paramount Plus spy thriller arrives Sunday, March 26

In the new Paramount Plus series Rabbit Hole, Kiefer Sutherland stars as John Weir, a corporate espionage operative who finds himself running from a powerful group of people who frame him for murder. 

These people have influence everywhere, and it’s a race against time to find out who set him up so that he can clear his name. The problem is that there’s nowhere to run, nowhere to hide and nowhere that’s safe.

Emergency NYC

  • Netflix docuseries on frontline workers released Wednesday, March 29

The new Netflix documentary Emergency: NYC takes viewers on a journey with some of New York City’s trauma professionals. From helicopters to ERs, we’re following members of trauma teams as they save lives and share their personal stories.

Medical dramas have always been popular, but this time the doctors and nurses are showing what it’s really like when every minute counts to save the lives of people in danger.

The Big Door Prize

  • Apple TV Plus sci-fi comedy drama starts Wednesday, March 29

The Big Door Prize is a new, warm-hearted Apple TV Plus Original comedy based on the bestselling novel (opens in new tab) by M. O. Walsh. It tells the story of a small American town that’s turned upside down by the appearance of a mysterious machine in a convenience store. 

The Morpho machine promises to reveal the true potential of each and every resident living in Deerfield, Louisiana, all for just a couple of bucks, and suddenly everyone starts deciding to change their path forward…everyone except school teacher, Dusty (The IT Crowd’s Chris O’Dowd), who isn’t necessarily ready to adjust to a new culture and thinks he might be happy with the life he’s already leading. 

The first three episodes will be available when The Big Door Prize premieres, with the remaining seven dropping on a weekly basis.

  • Netflix comedy lands on Thursday, March 30

Real-life father and son Rob and John Owen Lowe play fictional father and son in this gently Netflix comedy, with the full run of 8 30-minute episodes landing in one batch on March 30.

Unstable is about Ellis Dragon (Rob), successful yet eccentric business owner who's becoming more... well, unstable, after the death of his wife. To stop this his son Jackson (John Owen), a quiet and anti-social youngster, comes to work at his father's company to keep him... well, company.

Lowe and Lowe are also producers for the show, so it's certainly a father-son team both in front of and behind the camera, and apparently, the series is actually inspired by John Owen's Twitter trolling of his famous dad.

The Power

  • Prime Video sci-fi drama debuts on Friday, March 31

Another big Prime Video show featuring the word 'Power', The Power is Amazon's next big streaming show.

The Power, based on a bestselling novel (opens in new tab) by Naomi Alderman, is a drama set in a world similar to ours, except all teenage girls develop the superpower to shoot electricity from their fingers at will. The story explores this world, looking at the shift in global power dynamics and how characters fare in such a world.

The show stars Toni Collette, Auli'i Cravalho and John Leguizamo, and also features Eddie Marsan, Rob Delaney and Daniela Vega. That's a big-star cast for something Amazon is presenting as its next hit.
