Coming to TV in May

There’s lots of great entertainment to dig into this month on Rogers On Demand and Rogers Anyplace TV

Get ready for everything from thought-provoking conspiracy-based dramas to some lighter fare perfect for a springtime evening.


TMN Encore continues its newly launched slate of Starz programming with the six-part miniseries Sweetbitter, based on Stephanie Danler’s bestselling novel about the craziness of restaurant life in Manhattan. There’s plenty of food porn, Beaujolais and reckless bathroom hookups.

Available on Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on TMN Encore and Rogers On Demand.

The Tesla Files

Seventy-five years after his body was discovered alone in a New York hotel room, genius inventor Nikola Tesla continues to fascinate us. If his life and death weren’t already mysterious enough, a new investigation and this six-part TV series suggest extra-terrestrial communication and government conspiracy, following the FBI’s declassification of secret documents about the man.

Available on Fridays at 10 p.m. ET on History and Rogers On Demand.

Patrick Melrose

Brace yourself for a rollercoaster ride of rakish debauchery and hilarious excess when Benedict Cumberbatch brings to life the wonderfully larger-than-life Patrick Melrose, the heavily damaged rascal made famous in the five autobiographical Edward St Aubyn novels. This ambitious five-part Showtime adaptation co-stars the brilliant Hugo Weaving and Jennifer Jason Leigh as Patrick’s parents.

Available now on Showtime and Rogers On Demand.

Deep State

Following in the conspiracy footsteps of 24, Homeland and the Bourne films, this super-slick eight-part espionage thriller sees alpha male Mark Strong pulling out fingernails and sticking screwdrivers into nasty people. He’s a British agent lured to Beirut to eliminate a joint MI6/CIA cell caught tampering with Iran’s nuclear program. Stranger than reality? Nope.

Premieres on Sunday, May 20 on Super Channel and Rogers On Demand.
