Amazon next month (August 2023) plans to add 90 new TV shows and movies to its Prime streaming lineup. Here are the four most interesting, in my humble opinion:

Destination NBA: A G League Odyssey (2023)
The Amazon original documentary, produced by Religion of Sports and The Ringer, will chronicle the ups and downs of playing in the NBA’s developmental league, the G League. These guys have little chance of making it in the bigs but they play every night as if it will be their last. The show will focus on the 2022-23 season and include interviews with former G League stars Spencer Dinwiddie, Gary Payton II, Seth Curry and Jalen Green. Debuts August 8.
Thursday Night Football
Amazon’s exclusive Thursday Night Football broadcasts are back on August 24 with a pre-season game between the Indianapolis Colts and Philadelphia Eagles. This will be streamer’s second year of offering the games as an exclusive. The first TNF regular season game this year will be on September 14 between the Eagles and Minnesota Vikings.
Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves (2023)
The blockbuster film, which is based on the tabletop fantasy board game, stars Chris Pine and Michelle Rodriguez as former members of the Red Wizard clan who must escape from prison to save Pine’s daughter. Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, which was released in theaters on March 31, has made more than $200 million at the box office. Rotten Tomatoes, which tracks critical reviews, currently gives the film a critical review score of 90, based on 300 reviews.

The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart
Based on Holly Ringland’s best-selling novel, the seven-episode drama stars Sigourney Weaver as an elderly farmer who takes in her granddaughter after the girl’s parents die mysteriously in a fire. The pairing gets complicated when the girl learns the family has some dark secrets, particularly Granny. Debuts August 4.
