At once harrowing and hilarious, Oscar® nominee and Emmy® winner Benedict Cumberbatch stars as the troubled titular character.

Featured movies

Marshall (rated PG 13)
In 1940, long before he sits on the US Supreme Court or claimed victory in Brown v. Board of Education, Thurgood Marshall (Chadwick Boseman) is a young rabble-rousing attorney for the NAACP. Marshall explores one his greatest challenges in those early days: the case of black chauffeur Joseph Spell (Sterling K. Brown), accused by his white employer, Eleanor Strubing (Kate Hudson), of sexual assault and attempted murder.

Home Again (rated PG 13)
Reese Witherspoon stars as Alice Kinney who is recently separated from her husband. Alice decides to start over by moving back to her hometown of Los Angeles with her two young daughters. During a night out on her 40th birthday, Alice meets three aspiring filmmakers who happen to be in need of a place to live. Alice agrees to let the guys stay in her guest house temporarily, but the arrangement ends up unfolding in unexpected ways.

All of this and we haven’t even talked about sports and comedy yet!

The featured Sports Series, Below the Belt with Brendan Schaub is a one-of-a-kind sports talk show, exploring the intersection of combat sports and culture. There’s also boxing, Inside the NFL, and lots more.
