The best new TV to stream next week – from Too Hot To Handle to Little America | The Sun
IT'S a busy week for new streaming releases so get your popcorn ready and your comfiest PJs on.
We have a treat for the Country lovers, as Jessica Chastain stars in Paramount +'s George & Tamm Faye. Along with new anthology-drama, Little America – a series about the immigrants in the USA.
Not to mention hit Netflix reality show, Too Hot To Handle is back – and this time, Mario Lopez is making a surprise cameo.
The housewives are also back causing more mayhem as Real Housewives of Miami lands on Hayu.
In other words, whatever floats your boat – there's something for everyone on TV this week.
George & Tammy – Paramount+
For fans of country music, legends don’t come much bigger than Tammy Wynette and George Jones. These two iconic singers met and fell in love in the late 1960s, touring the world together and teaming up on a bunch of country hits.
However, their relationship – which was complicated by Tammy’s exploding fame and George’s alcoholism – was doomed to fall apart, and in 1975 they divorced.
The story of their intense but volatile love is told in this new six-part drama, starring Jessica Chastain as Tammy and Michael Shannon as George.
Based on the book <The Three Of Us: Growing Up With Tammy And George> by the couple’s daughter Georgette Jones, it’s beautifully produced and wonderfully acted, and – naturally enough – filled with some great music, not least Tammy’s classic Stand By Your Man.
If country’s your thing, this’ll hit all the right notes.
Too Hot To Handle – Netflix
Forget I’m A Celeb or Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins, surely the toughest and most mentally-demanding reality show on TV is Too Hot To Handle.
Back again for a fourth series, this time the 10 beautiful, bronzed and buff singletons arrive at a luxury Caribbean villa thinking they’re about to take part in a Love Island-style dating show called Wild Love, which is hosted by Mario Lopez.
Unfortunately for them, they’re actually on Too Hot To Handle, the show in which the frisky contestants are watched over by a super-strict virtual assistant called Lana and forbidden from touching each other in a sexual way – or risk seeing the $200,000 prize money dwindle.
The first five episodes drop Wednesday, then the rest on 14 December
Liam Gallagher Knebworth 22 – Paramount+
Way back in August 1996, when Britpop was in full and boisterous swing, Oasis played two massive, legendary shows at Knebworth.
In June this year, 26 years later, the band’s former frontman Liam Gallagher repeated history by staging his own pair of humongous concerts in the grounds of the iconic stately home, performing to 170,000 people over two nights.
This feature-length documentary goes behind the scenes of the event, chatting to Liam himself, collaborators and fans, and treating us to plenty of concert footage too. Funny, nostalgic and electrifying, it’s a rock ’n’ roll treat for fans.
And if you want to see the full concert – Liam Gallagher Live: Knebworth 22 – it will also be available to stream from Wednesday.
The Real Housewives Of Miami – Hayu
It’s back to Miami for season five of the recently rebooted reality series, with loads of attention sure to be focused on the fallout from Lisa Hochstein’s sensational split from Lenny, her husband of 13 years.
There’s also the wives’ luxury trip to the Bahamas to look forward to and a surprise thawing in Lisa’s relationship with Larsa Pippen.
Expect another explosive run, filled with emotional fireworks, fallouts and makeups, bitching and backstabbing, and plenty of envy-inducing homes, clothes and sunshine.
Little America -Apple TV+
Little America is A beautifully made and hugely affecting anthology drama series, which tells genuine stories of immigrants in America.
Inspired by pieces featured in Epic Magazine, a US publication that specialises in telling extraordinary true stories, each episode features a different cast and ranges from the funny to the heartfelt, the romantic to the inspiring.
The cast is always top-notch, featuring incredible character actors including Zachary Quinto (Star Trek, Heroes) and Melanie Laurent (Now You See Me, Inglourious Basterds) in season one, and Sasha Compere (Miracle Workers) and Phylicia Rashad (The Cosby Show) in season two.
Above all, the show is relatable, sensitive and never patronising. It explores both the good and the bad experiences of everyday life as an immigrant in the States and, most important of all, at a time when asylum seekers and migrants are often demonised for political gain, it reminds us that we’re all human, wherever we’re from.

The second season of this fantasy drama – which follows a young woman, Ava (Alba Baptista), with supernatural powers that allow her to fight demons on Earth – is even more action-packed than the first. Fans of Buffy The Vampire Slayer should make sure they check it out.
