Here is what HBO Max has to offer this month.
Our Flag Means Death (streaming weekly)
“Our Flag Means Death” is based loosely upon the real life of Stede Bonnet, a wealthy aristocrat who gave up everything to become a pirate captain. Bonnet, his crew and Captain Blackbeard made an unlikely friend. They set sail for many misadventures on the Seven Seas.
Taika waititi and Rhys Darby are the stars of this hilarious new comedy series. The ensemble cast includes Leslie Jones and Nick Kroll, Fred Armisen and Nick Kroll, as well as Nick Kroll, Kristen Schaal and Nick Kroll.
Minx (March 17)
Starring Jake Johnson and Ophelia Lovibond, “Minx” takes us back to the 1970s and follows Joyce, a second-wave feminist who dreams of publishing a radical feminist magazine called “The Matriarchy Awakens.” Joyce finds it difficult to find traditional publishers so she teams up with Doug. Doug is a porn mogul who she would never choose to work with. The pair decided to rebrand “The Matriarchy awakens” as an erotic magazine.
Starstruck (season two, March 24)
After closing out its first season on a swoon-worthy cliffhanger, “Starstruck” is back for season two. Starring Rose Matafeo and Nikesh Patel, “Starstruck” follows the somewhat lost 20-something Jessie, who begins an almost-relationship with a movie star after a one night stand. The second season of “Starstruck” will continue right from the beginning: Jessie refusing to make major life changes for Tom. Ultimately, this grand gesture will not solve all of the odd couple’s problems, as you can see from the trailer. The new season of “Starstruck” arrives on HBO Max March 24.
