1. Pam and Tommy
original name: Pam & Tommy
Premiere: February 2
In the 90s, the names of these celebrities did not leave the covers of news publications. Scandal after scandal, drama after drama – it seemed that the star couple liked to excite the public. And the situation with the leak of an intimate video made Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee the main media characters at once. Years later, Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton (who, by the way, got married not so long ago) and other celebrities will use this technique without a twinge of conscience. But at that time it was a real “bomb”, and it is not surprising that the Hulu video service decided to dedicate an entire mini-series to it.
2. In the city of murder
original name: Murderville
Premiere: February 3
Netflix has found a new way to solve murders. The crime-comedy show (Strange Neighborhood, Agree) is about detective Terry Seattle, who invites various celebrities to take part in the investigation of crimes. Moreover, the stars will not work according to the script, but completely indulging in improvisation. Conan O’Brien, Annie Murphy, Ken Zhong, Sharon Stone and others will definitely become Seattle’s partners. Invited artists will carefully collect evidence and try to figure out the criminal. So far, the streaming service has only announced 6 episodes. The further fate of the project will depend on its popularity.
3. Jack Reacher
original name: Jack Reacher
Premiere: February 4
Another cool police novelty, this time from Amazon. Surely you remember the sensational film series of the same name starring Tom Cruise. However, as it turned out, neither fans of Lee Child’s novels (the books that formed the basis of the film adaptation), nor the author of the printed franchise himself were pleased with Cruise’s reincarnation as military police veteran Jack Reacher. The actor turned out to be too small for the role of a huge muscular hero. Jack Reacher’s new look should please everyone: this time, he’ll be played by Titans star Alan Ritchson, who weighs 110kg and stands almost 2m tall, with a mountain of muscle and a steel abs.
4. Under suspicion
original name: Suspicion
Premiere: February 4
The eight-episode political thriller Under Suspicion is based on the 2015 Israeli hit False Flag. At the center of the picture is the drama that unfolded in the life of successful media mogul Katherine Newman (played by Uma Thurman): four masked strangers kidnap her son from a hotel room. The woman is devastated and brings the public into the investigation. After a while, the first suspects are found: they are completely random guests of Britain, who, at first glance, have nothing to do with the complicated case. As each of them pleads not guilty, the FBI and the London police need to find out the truth as soon as possible.

original name: Nomination
Premiere: February 7
I would not like to ignore the domestic novelty, which will appear on the screens on February 7th. Okko online cinema, which has become part of our selection of the best streaming video services, will present a family drama starring Nadezhda and Anna Mikhalkov. Nadezhda, for whom the project became a directorial debut, played Vera, the youngest daughter of the eminent late director. Faith was waiting for a brilliant acting career in Hollywood, which at the last moment failed. Now she has to return to her homeland and develop domestic cinema, and even in the company of her sister and mother, with whom the girl has a very tense relationship.
8. Inventing Anna

Premiere: February 11
One of the long-awaited new Netflix films, based on real events, will tell the story of Anna Delvey (Sorokina), a swindler who managed to fraudulently join the rich world of the New York elite, posing as the daughter of a millionaire from Germany. Anna led a luxurious lifestyle and did not deny herself anything, paying bills with credit cards of wealthy friends, until those around her began to suspect something was wrong … By the way, the real Anna Sorokina, who became the prototype of the main character, was released not so long ago, by selling the film rights to his own life to Netflix.
