In this bizarre pandemic year, HBO is still managing to find new content to get before its subscribers. We are indeed thankful for many things in 2020 and we can add the distractions that HBO has given us to that list. We are heading into November; let’s see what HBO has to offer.
A few quick points:
INDUSTRY Is Ready For Business

HBO Original Series: Debuting MONDAY, NOVEMBER 09 (10:00-11:00pm ET/PT) is INDUSTRY from first-time creators Mickey Down and Konrad Kay.

Five young graduates do whatever it takes to make themselves indispensable at preeminent London investment bank Pierpoint & Co. As hungry outsider Harper (Myha’la Herrold) grapples with a decision that will gravely affect her future at the bank, she and party-boy Robert (Harry Lawtey) take very different approaches to their first few weeks in the bank. Meanwhile, Yasmin (Marisa Abela) braves the unchecked disrespect of her superiors and Hari’s (Nabhaan Rizwan) unhealthy work habits raise companywide red flags.

–Season 1, Episode 2: “Quiet and Nice”
Debut date: MONDAY, NOVEMBER 16 (10:00-11:00pm)

Meanwhile, Yasmin (Marisa Abela) comes face to face with the culture of her new team and takes her flirtation with Robert (Harry Lawtey) to risky new heights. Written by Mickey Down and Konrad Kay; Directed by Tinge Krishnan.
When Pierpoint loses a major client, the grads face their most challenging – and potentially rewarding – test to date: devising pitches to drive new business. After the dissolution of his team finds him reassigned to a disinterested new supervisor, a creative Gus (David Jonsson) partners with Robert (Harry Lawtey) to catch Clement’s (Derek Riddell) attention. Meanwhile, as she navigates a complicated living situation with Yasmin (Marisa Abela), Harper (Myha’la Herrold) attempts to juggle conflicting requests from Eric (Ken Leung) and Daria (Freya Mavor). Written by Sam H. Freeman; Directed by Tinge Krishnan.
After a wild birthday celebration with Robert (Harry Lawtey), Yasmin (Marisa Abela), and Greg (Ben Lloyd-Hughes), Harper’s (Myha’la Herrold) workday spirals out of control. As a discrepancy in one of her trades puts her team at risk for major losses, Harper seeks support from a surprising source, while unexpected trouble at a networking event brings Yasmin and Robert closer and Gus (David Jonsson) further alienates his coworkers. Written by Mickey Down and Konrad Kay; Directed by Ed Lilly.

And now this…
Movies:There are four Saturdays in November with a movie each night but two of them have an altered time start from the usual 8 o’clock primetime hour. We will point them out as we take a look at family fare and a bit of action in The Dead Don’t Die,Dolittle, Underwaterand The Call of The Wildfor the month.
An HBO Special fills the night of 11.07 (more on that in a bit) but a movie premiere is still on the schedule. THE DEAD DON’T DIE is a comedy-horror flick taking the spot, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 07 (6:10-7:55pm). It’s the living dead as only Jim Jarmusch could create. Here’s all you need to know: the director of such indie favorites as Broken Flowers and Stranger Than Paradise takes a zombie invasion to a small town, whose sheriff happens to be Bill Murray. Big laughs and splatter ensue. The incredible supporting cast includes Adam Driver, Tilda Swinton, Chloe Sevigny, Steve Buscemi, Danny Glover, Caleb Landry Jones, Rosie Perez, Iggy Pop, Sara Driver, RZA, Selena Gomez, Carol Kane and Tom Waits.

HBO Documentary Films:HBO is packing a few documentaries onto the end of the year. Here is what is appearing over the next month. Surely, you can find a topic to intrigue you. We lead off with another multi-part series, this one entitled MURDER ON MIDDLE BEACH, which debuts SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 15 (10:00-11:00pm) and plays for four installments at that time. The series, directed by first-time filmmaker Madison Hamburg, presents Hamburg’s complicated journey as a young man determined to solve an unspeakable crime and absolve the people he loves, while looking for answers within his fractured family and community. That is their description, not mine, and it is horribly vague. Perhaps the trailer can help shed more light on the crime & the investigation.
Okay, well if that isn’t crazy enough, how about the lady who gets inside the minds of serial killers for a living? Psychiatrist Dr. Dorothy Otnow Lewis has dedicated her career to the study of murderers, seeking answers to the question of why we kill.CRAZY, NOT INSANE, directed and produced by Academy Award-winner Alex Gibney debuts WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 18 (9:00-11:00pm). This provocative documentary explores, like a scientific detective story, Dr. Lewis’s lifelong attempts to look beyond the grisly details of homicides into the hearts and minds of the killers themselves. And on WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 25 (9:00-10:30pm)you can catch a work about a long-standing mystery in THE MYSTERY OF DB COOPER. Directed by John Dower, this documentary brings to life the stories of four people believed by their family and friends to be “DB Cooper” a man who on November 24, 1971 hijacked a 727 flying out of Seattle and jumped from the plane over the wilds of Washington State with a parachute and $200,000, never to be heard from again.

It will also incorporate documentary footage from the actors’ home life, archival footage, and animation. will debut SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 21 at (8:00pm ET/PT).
HBO Sports:The sports division has lined up a new 4-part docu-series. From executive producers Michael Strahan and Constance Schwartz-Morini comes the THE COST OF WINNING, the story of the St. Frances Academy Panthers football program. In 2018, a nearly 200-year-old Catholic school, located in the heart of a neighborhood rife with gun violence and grinding socioeconomic challenges, became a source of both immense pride and then searing controversy as the school’s football team, the Panthers, were expelled from their private school league for being “too good” – a turn of events that raised questions of racial bias. Finding themselves without a league in which to play, the team made its own schedule, barnstorming the country in search of top competition and the chance to showcase its players as they strove for athletic scholarships. It debuts TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 10 beginning at 9:00pm ET/PT, with episodes three and four airing the following evening at the same time.
It is rare to have an episode breakdown for a docu-series, but there is one for this one.
Debut Date: TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 10 (9:00-9:30pm)
Only one week out from their season-opener in Miami, the Panthers prepare for their grueling upcoming national schedule after being forced out of their local Maryland private-school league for being ‘too good.’ Despite lacking adequate facilities, and conditioning on the Baltimore streets, this small school sets out to do the unthinkable.
Debut Date: TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 10 (9:30-10:00pm)
With Week 2’s home-opener against Chicago Simeon fast approaching, the No. 2-seeded Panthers have one more opportunity to prepare for their upcoming trip to Los Angeles to take on No. 1-seeded Mater Dei in hopes of keeping their national championship dreams alive. As the team prepares for the most important match-up of the season – and possibly their high school careers, the realities of life in Baltimore are constant reminders of what they’re really playing for.
Debut Date: WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 11 (9:00-9:30pm)
As the Panthers work to rebuild their bruised team morale from experiencing loss on and off the field, homecoming provides the players with some much-needed support before they take on IMG Academy – another nationally ranked powerhouse – for a chance to redeem their season in one of the biggest football games Baltimore has ever seen.
–Episode 4 Debut Date: WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 11 (9:30-10:00pm)
As the final game of the regular season looms, the Panthers’ seniors are struck by the realization that their time at St. Frances is rapidly ending, and major life changes lie ahead.

Other Movies and Shows:How about some good movies scattered across the schedule like TWELVE MONKEYS, RED TAILS, DOWNTON ABBEY, BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD, THE CIDER HOUSE RULES and GLASS. I almost forgot to include CRAFTING LOVECRAFT COUNTRY, a 28-minute look at the making of the hit HBO series. Here is a trailer from just one of the listed movies.
Other HBO Channels:The main channel’s works are the big juicy turkey, but the kind of programming you find on the other channels can be the complementary trimmings that help make a great meal.

It debuts 11.06. DE LO MIOdebuts on 11.13.

An amateur filmmaker who’s about to get married falls for a porn star when he’s hired by a mobster to direct a pornographic version of the classic horror film ”The Bride of Frankenstein.” I did not just make that up! CHATEAU VATOA skilled but down-on-his-luck gardener survives hand-to-hand combat with rival landscaping crews before he stumbles upon a glorious estate that hasn’t been landscaped in months. The movie, debuting 11.27 stars Paul Rodriguez. HBO Signature:Are you game for THE TALENTED MR. RIPLEY with Matt Damon or perhaps Tom Cruise in MAGNOLIA? Damon, for me. Brad Pitt gives us THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON and AD ASTRA or, dare we mention, Kevin Spacey is in AMERICAN BEAUTY. If you have 2 hours and 42 minutes to kill you can watch THE ENGLISH PATIENT. And, I know, I can stop this at any time. HBO Comedy: Hey, on 11.29 you can still get your fill of pie. No, not pumpkin pie but AMERICAN PIE, as that 1999 movie and its sequels AMERICAN PIE 2 & AMERICAN REUNION run back-to-back. You liking Hugh Grant in THE UNDOING, then perhaps 1999’s NOTTING HILL is for you? CEDRIC THE ENTERTAINER: TAKING YOU HIGHER and MICHELE WOLF: NICE LADY are some stand-up choices. HBO Family: WINGS: SKY FORCE HEROES offers adventure complete with talking airplanes, kids go to superhero school in SKY HIGH and and zipping through the sky is that canine superhero UNDERDOG. HBO Zone: CITY ISLAND is a comedic tale right out of the Bronx, Clive Owen gets medieval as a fierce warrior who fights against a corrupt ruler in LAST KNIGHTS and Christopher Walken is sensational in the1995 shocker THE PROPHESY about a war on Earth between two factions of angels. Walken stars as the evil Gabriel, the leader of a pack of celestial renegades whose hatred of God’s love for humans leads them to revolt. And if that’s not enough, on 11.08 you can watch it here and all four of its sequels back-to-back. We’ll single out the Hugh Grant flick –

HBO Max: The streamer is just obsessed with rivaling Netflix and seems to greenlight just about anything to beef up its content. The assumption seems to be if you slap an H, B & O in front of it, it is a certified hit. Well only viewers can make that happen so here are some titles (some without confirmed launch dates) to keep you on top of what is being presented. One of the series HBO Max has been touting from the beginning finally hots the siter in November. Get ready for takeoff because here comes the HBO Max Original, THE FLIGHT ATTENDANT.

The series has received a great reception in the UK where it is currently airing on Sky. The series tells a comic tale of love and revenge born from a seemingly harmless prank that goes terribly wrong. Kim Noakes, an early 20-something oddball who, since the murder of her father, has been sequestered away in the wilderness with her doomsday-prepping mother for most of her life.

It is co-created by BAFTA nominee Billie Piper (Doctor Who), who also leads the cast, and by Emmy winner and critically acclaimed writer of the series Lucy Prebble (SUCCESSION). It is a bold, bracing, original dramedy about the moment in life when the mask slips, asking if any of us can survive being well and truly ‘known’.

Cinemax:It seems as though Cinemax is pretty much been given up on, but Bruce Lee is still giving up the action as the last(?) Original Series from the network plays out. It is WARRIOR.
