The Pentaverate – What if a secret society of five men has been working to influence world events for the greater good since the Black Plague of 1347? As this new series begins, one unlikely Canadian journalist (Mike Myers) finds himself embroiled in a mission to uncover the truth and just possibly save the world himself. Remember, the Pentaverate must never be exposed! Debuts May 5 on Netflix.

The Unsolved Murder of Beverly Smith – Beverly Smith was just 22 years old when she was murdered in her own home with a single shot to the back of the head on December 9, 1974. The case goes cold, but the police never forget the murder. Almost five decades later, it gets a fresh look. Debuts May 6 on Prime Video.

Turning Red – Meilin (Rosalie Chiang) is a typical middle-schooler who’s excited about attending the concert of her favorite music group. When Meilin wakes up one morning to find she’s become a giant red panda, she can’t believe her eyes. Although she tries to hide what’s happened, she discovers her mother Ming (Sandra Oh) isn’t surprised, and wants to help her. In the meantime, Meilin keeps turning into a giant red panda whenever she gets excited, which is often. Available May 3rd on DVD and Blu-ray.

Turning Red star Rosalie Chiang talks about voicing Meilin and Sandra Oh talks about voicing Meilin’s mother, Ming. They discuss studying red pandas, coming to Toronto, where the film is set, and their own experiences trying to gain independence from their parents, as Meilin goes through in the movie.

Stu’s Show – The fascinating story of how TV historian and archivist Stu Shostak wound up becoming very good friends with Lucille Ball and many other classic TV icons through his work on various television programs. It also tells the story of how he met his wife and helped her through a life-altering brain aneurysm. Available May 2 on Digital.

Stu Shostak gives insight into his friendship and working relationship with Lucille Ball in his documentary Stu’s Show. He discusses how the biopic Being the Ricardos compares to his memories of Lucille Ball and reveals who his favorite guests have been on his talk show. He also reveals that one reason he did the documentary was to help others whose loved ones have had debilitating illnesses, like his wife Jeanine, navigate the medical system.

Marmaduke – Messy and mischievous Marmaduke (voice of Pete Davidson) has a big heart but can’t stay out of trouble! Does he have what it takes to shine in the swanky dog show world? Debuts May 6 on Netflix.
