Sitcom that centres around formerly famous boyband star turned drug shamed tabloid laughingstock Maxxx.

He's down, but not out...

He's trying to make a comeback to prove to the world - but mostly to his famous supermodel ex-girlfriend - that he's not the massive loser everyone says he is.

But with his adopted teenage son, Amit, in serious need of daddy-advice, his cousin-slash superfan-slash-stalker Rose popping up around every corner, and with most people thinking he's already dead, the journey back to stardom isn't going to be easy.

Enter Tamzin, with her dreams of becoming an internationally respected manager.

But with Maxxx as her only client, she certainly has her work cut out.

Maxxx offers an outrageous, rude and cringe-inducing peek behind the pop world's curtain at the drugs, sex, insecurity and fragile narcissism of those who seek validation and meaning in all the wrong places.

Snowfall 5

Set in the summer of 1986, Franklin Saint and his entire family are rich beyond their wildest dreams, on the verge of having everything they've ever wanted... right as the ground begins to fall out from under their feet.

The sudden and tragic death of basketball star Len Bias makes the rock cocaine epidemic front-page news, the target of both Democrat and Republican lawmakers.

Law enforcement is on a warpath and the militarization of the L.A.P.D. continues as police and politicians decide the only way to deal with this growing scourge is through force - and the creation of the new C.R.A.S.H. (Community Resources Against Street Hoodlums) units.

The streets of South Central Los Angeles have never been so dangerous as the Saint family navigates the police, the warring gangs and the CIA.

Amidst all of this, the biggest threat the family faces are each other as they try not to let greed, resentment and ego tear them all apart.

In the Season 5 premiere, "Comets": It's the summer of 1986 and the Saint crew has leveled up.

New Amsterdam 4

Inspired by Bellevue, the oldest public hospital in America, this medical drama follows the brilliant and charming Dr. Max Goodwin (Ryan Eggold), the institution's newest medical director who sets out to tear up the bureaucracy and provide exceptional care.

When Dr. Goodwin took over New Amsterdam, he asked a simple, revolutionary question: "How can I help?"

After a turbulent year of sacrifice and hardship, Max and the team at New Amsterdam begin a well-deserved new chapter in their lives.

The opening episode, "More Joy," reflects both the drive of characters and the tone of Season 4.

More joy: How can we find it, and how can we hold on to it?

For Max, that means acknowledging and surrendering to his long-simmering feelings towards Dr. Helen Sharpe.

While this new relationship brings its own set of challenges, Max continues his optimistic - and quixotic - quest to improve the nation's health care system.

Continuing to navigate their own personal journeys - including Dr. Bloom's relationship with Dr. Leyla Shinwari, who is now her resident, Dr. Frome's new career and Dr. Reynolds' personal entanglements - the doctors will strive to embrace the joy and successes in their lives.

But there is a surprise in store...

Dr. Veronica Fuentes is joining the New Amsterdam team to help turn around the overburdened and underfunded hospital.

Her first order of business will be to tear down every progressive program Max has erected.

Max will have his work cut out for him if he is going to outwit this calm, poised and fearless fixer.
