April was a great month for NOW members, as on top of the huge new movie and shows released, some of the very best TV comedies of all time were added to the platform, as well as one of the best (and most important) stand-up comedy specials in years.

The folks at NOW have given us a sneak peak of what to expect in May, so all of the below (and more besides!) will be available to stream with your NOW Cinema Membership and your NOW Entertainment Membership throughout the month.

Stream the first three episodes on Thursday, 5 May, then one new episode each Thursday after that.

The dramatised adaptation of one of the most jaw-dropping documentaries in recent memory. This mini-series will do a deep dive on the life of Michael Peterson (played by Colin Firth), an apparently loving husband and father, who finds himself in the middle of a murder investigation following the suspicious death of his wife Kathleen (Toni Collette).

The Flight Attendant: Season Two

Stream every episode from Thursday, 26 May.

We absolutely loved the first season of The Flight Attendant, so we're more than happy to be spending more time with Cassie Bowden (Kaley Cuoco), who is trying to successfully juggle her careers as a flight attendant and an undercover CIA asset. Of course, things all go awry when she is the witness to a murder with huge international implications.

Directed, co-written and starring comedy legend Billy Crystal, this movie takes a look at burgeoning friendship between a veteran writer (Crystal) and a New York singer (Tiffany Haddish), and how generation gaps can often be hugely beneficial for friendships.

This romantic-drama mini-series is based on the much-loved novel of the same name, telling the story of a woman (Rose Leslie) who finds herself falling in love with a man (Theo James) who is afflicted with uncontrollable time travel, so she never knows when she'll see him again, or how old they'll both be when they do reunite.
