Amazon Prime This Week: 32 New Titles, 1 Original

Amazon this week (July 28-August 3) plans to add 32 new TV shows and movies to its Prime streaming lineup, including one original.

The new titles will include episode one of This Is Football, an Amazon original six-part documentary on soccer’s powerful impact around the globe. The show is being co-produced by Starbucks.

“The universal appeal of football is something we know resonates strongly with the Amazon Prime Video audience worldwide, so I’m delighted that we are able to bring this fascinating six-part series of unique stories about the world’s most talked about sport exclusively to Prime Video,” Vernon Sanders, the co-chief of television for Amazon Studios, said in a press release.

Also coming this week to Amazon Prime: Five Star Trek movies; Rosemary’s Baby, Roman Polanski’s creepy 1968 horror film starring Mia Farrow; and, speaking of Polanski, The Haunting of Sharon Tate (pictured above), a 2019 movie starring Hilary Duff as the ill-fated actress in the days prior to the Mansion Family Murders which took her life and the lives of three friends.

(The sudden interest in Polanski, who was married to Tate, and the actress herself undoubtedly has been triggered by last week’s release of Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time In Hollywood which uses the Manson murders as a backdrop.)
