Amazon next month (October 2020) plans to add 77 new TV shows and movies to its Prime streaming lineup, including eight originals.

The new titles will include Black Box, an Amazon original sci-fi/horror movie about a man (Mamoudou Athie) who takes an experimental drug to regain his memory after a car accident; Truth Seekers, an Amazon original comedy series starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as paranormal investigators’ season two of Mirzapur, an Amazon original Indian-made series about drugs, guns and very nasty behavior; and The Lie (pictured above), an Amazon original film starring Mireille Enos and Peter Sarsgaard as parents who attempt to cover up a murder committed by their teenage daughter (Joey King). Veena Sud, who developed AMC’s The Killing, which starred Enos, directs. (See trailer for The Lie below.)
