A new weekly feature to let you know what to watch each week in the romance and period drama genres. From TV to Streaming to Movie Releases and even Video On Demand.
The highlights for this week (that have me excited, at least) include the Netflix premiere of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, the release of the rom-com Book Club, the new Agatha Christie adaptation on Amazon Prime, and the season premiere of Chesapeake Shores on Hallmark!
Below you’ll find premieres, new episodes of current shows, new movie releases, and new VOD for the week of August 5. What you won’t find are all the repeats, movies on every paid cable channel (HBO, Showtime, STARZ, etc.) or streaming, and other extraneous content. This watchlist is for what’s new or a special standout! Schedules and release dates are subject to change.
