Them – April 9 

Them: Covenant

Executive produced by Lena Waithe and Little Marvin, the first installment in this series, titled Covenant, follows a Black family who move to a 1950s all-white neighborhood in Los Angeles. Everything seems perfect on the surface, but it soon becomes apparent that there's a lot wrong in the street – including supernatural forces, as well as threats from their neighbors. The trailer promises a spine-chilling vibe and scares a–plenty.

Tom Clancy's Without Remorse – April 30

Starring Michael B. Jordan, this action thriller movie follows a US Navy SEAL who, in the aftermath of his wife's murder, discovers a huge conspiracy. The stakes only get higher when he teams up with another SEAL and a CIA officer, when together they discover something that could start a war between the US and Russia. Expect some high octane action in this Tom Clancy adaptation.

Frank of Ireland – TBA April

This comedy series stars real life brothers Brian and Domhnall Gleeson. Brian plays Frank Marron, a man in his 30s with a serious chip on his shoulder, who also claims to be a musician, despite not having written a song or performed live in quite some time. He's also struggling with the news that his ex-girlfriend has moved on with a new man. Domhnall plays his best friend, Doofus.

Frank of Ireland is, as you might have guessed from the name, set in Dublin, Ireland, and promises plenty of laughs.
