The Flatshare (Season 1)
Full Season (6 episodes) available from December 1.
Jessica Brown Findlay and Anthony Welsh star as Tiffany and Leon, two cash-strapped London twentysomethings who share a bed. The catch is – Tiffany and Leon have never met and, if their plan works out, they never will.
Recovering from a controlling relationship, Tiffany spends her days earning minimum wage for minimum appreciation on a viral news website, while Leon works nightshifts in a hospice getting life advice from a terminally ill tween as he tries to free his wrongfully jailed brother.
But, as the Post-it Notes start to fly and each gets unexpectedly drawn into the other’s messy, complex life, an attraction evolves backwards.
George & Tammy (Season 1, Weekly)
Episode 1 available from December 5, Then new episodes weekly (6 in total).
Country music drama series centred around Tammy Wynette (Jessica Chastain), the first lady of country music. Michael Shannon plays her husband George Jones.

In June 2022, Liam Gallagher defied all expectations and returned to Knebworth, 26 years after Oasis’ historic 1996 shows, performing to 170,000 people across two nights in one of the first major stage shows following the pandemic.
Knebworth 22 is a feature-length documentary that traces Liam back to the site of his former band’s defining performances, including all-new interviews, behind-the-scenes and epic concert footage.
The film also goes a little bit further, seeking out stories and perspectives from collaborators and fans of different generations from around the world, transposing the emotional and social context of the 90s’ shows versus the tumult of our current era.
Additionally, the concert itself, titled Liam Gallagher Live: Knebworth 22 will also be available to stream exclusively on Paramount+ from December 7.
Blowing LA (Season 1)
Full Season (8 episodes) available from December 8.
Over 8 episodes, Blowing LA offers audiences a glimpse into the rarefied world of $2,400 haircuts.
With unique access to two legendary LA establishments – ‘Starring by Ted Gibson’ and ‘Kim Vō Salon’ – this series goes behind the glossy façade to reveal a world of creative visionaries, ambition and a fight to stay at the top. Keeping ahead in the salons of A-list favourites is crucial to success.

Action adventure hit starring Sandra Bullock, Daniel Radcliffe and Channing Tatum.
Loretta Sage’s novels are filled with ancient tombs and daring adventures, but that doesn’t mean she’s prepared to face them in real life.
When she is kidnapped by an eccentric billionaire to locate a legendary lost city, Loretta’s handsome cover model, Alan, sets off on a heroic but hapless rescue mission.
Thrust into an epic thrill ride through the jungle, the unlikely pair must work together to survive the elements, and survive each other, to find the city’s fabled treasure before it’s lost forever

A musical remake of the classic comedy. In Snow Day, siblings Hal (Ky Baldwin, Peter Allen) and Natalie Brandston discover that anything is possible on a snow day when a surprise winter whiteout offers them the chance to break routines, take giant risks and follow their dreams.
Inspired to pursue his crush, Claire Bonner, Hal enlists the help of his best friend, Lane (Fabi Aguirre) to help him express his feelings, and Natalie decides she must challenge her arch nemesis, the Snowplowman (Jerry Trainor), if she wants to pull off the task of creating a second snow day.

Top Gun Maverick (2022)
Movie (131 minutes) available from December 22.
One of the biggest films of 2022 is finally coming to Paramount+ in the UK.
The sequel to 1986’s Top Gun, directed by Joseph Kosinski, was a massive success for Paramount this year, earning more than $1.3 billion at the global box office, and becoming one of the top 10 earners of all time in the US.
After more than 30 years of service as one of the Navy’s top aviators, Pete “Maverick” Mitchell (Tom Cruise) is where he belongs, pushing the envelope as a courageous test pilot and dodging the advancement in rank that would ground him.
Training a detachment of graduates for a special assignment, Maverick must confront the ghosts of his past and his deepest fears, as he comes face to face with Lt. Bradshaw (Miles Teller), the son of his former wingman “Goose”.
Bitter rivalries ignite as the pilots prepare for a mission that demands the ultimate sacrifice from those who choose to fly it.
The film also stars Jennifer Connelly and Jon Hamm, with Val Kilmer reprising his role from the original film.
