More fan favourites arrive on Presto this month, along with critically acclaimed movies and drama series from overseas and Australia. In May, Presto TV will feature two critically acclaimed dramas from HBO. On one hand we have Generation Kill
, a seven-part mini-series that follows a battalion of elite reconnaissance Marines as they cope with the daily struggles of war. On the other, we have supernatural drama Carnivàle
(seasons 1-2), that introduces viewers to a different kind of battle, one between light and dark forces set against the backdrop of a mysterious travelling carnival.
This May will also see the addition of a slew of hit programs from leading distributor eOne: Hell on Wheels (seasons 1-4 starting Sunday, May 3), Haven (seasons 1-4 starting Sunday, May 10), The Slap (season 1 starting Sunday, May 10), Rookie Blue (seasons 1-4 starting Sunday, May 17), Bitten (season 1 starting Sunday, May 24, first on Presto), Rogue (season 1-2 starting Sunday, May 24, first on Presto), The Firm (season 1 starting Sunday, May 24, first on Presto), Matador (season 1 starting Sunday, May 24). Presto also welcomes Rectify (seasons 1-2 starting Sunday, May 17), coming from Sundance TV.
As far as movies are concerned, there’s something for everyone. Highlights include the romantic comedy The Longest Week, starring Jason Bateman; the hilarious Walk Of Shame featuring Elizabeth Banks doing her best to overcome a killer hang over in order to land her dream job; World War 2 epic Fury which follows a battle-hardened tank crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines in a move to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany; The Skeleton Twins, a movie that gives new meaning to family as loved ones try and put the pieces of their lives together, accept one another and move on together; and The Turning, a collection of short films based on stories by Australian writer Tim Winton.
