March Previews: Netflix and Amazon

Crip Camp (Netflix)

Co-directed by Emmy-winning filmmaker Nicole Newnham and sound designer and mixer Jim LeBrecht, Crip Camp turns the clock back to fifty years. Not far from where the infamous Woodstock music festival took place, in the Catskills in upstate New York, there was a summer camp for teenagers with disabilities, a place to find freedom of expression and escape from everyday discrimination. LeBrecht was one of those campers at Camp Jened, and this film promises to take you right into the heat of that Utopia, where teens could find support and friendship wherever they turned.

Ozark Season 3 (Netflix)

One of Netflix’s most popular shows, Ozark is back for its third ten-episode season. As star Jason Bateman tweeted a while back, when its return was announced, “I’m happy for me, but concerned for Marty.” The last time we were with the Byrde family, amid all this laundering money for a Mexican cartel, Bateman’s Marty was put in his place by wife Wendy (Laura Linney), who put the brakes on his plan to flee to the Gold Coast. After winning two Emmys for Bateman and co-star Julia Garner for Season 2, this year’s run has all the hallmarks of something special.

The Test: A New Era For Australia’s Team (Amazon Prime)

Amazon Prime has been at the forefront of fly-on-the-wall sporting documentaries, after sending the cameras in to watch football team Manchester City in their title-winning season two years ago. Now comes an eight-part behind-the-scenes look at the Australian cricket team, picking up shortly after the team fell from grace in the wake of the infamous ball-tampering scandal during the 3rd test against South Africa in Cape Town in 2018. Documenting the team’s rocky road back to glory, it leads up to the Ashes series against England last year. Essential viewing for cricket fans.

Making The Cut (Amazon Prime)

Like the Amazon answer to Project Runaway, this new ten-part reality series brings together a dozen talented entrepreneurs and designers to compete for $1 million to invest in their brand. The winner will have the opportunity to create an exclusive fashion line for Amazon and – in what feels like a real watershed moment for the future of interactive TV – limited editions of the winning look will be available for purchase exclusively via Amazon in its dedicated ‘Making the Cut’ store. With two episodes hitting Prime every week, your hosts are Project Runway’s very own Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn.

All shows available from March 2020 onwards.
