Warner Bros. Discovery has announced the movies and TV shows coming to the Max streaming service in November. The Max November 2023 lineup includes the debut of original Bookie, the streaming debut of Blue Beetle, as well as season two of Max Originals Rap Sh!t and Julia.
The schedule also includes HBO Original documentaries Albert Brooks: Defending My Life and South to Black Power, Magnolia Network’s Fixer Upper: The Hotel, and Max Original Little Richard: I Am Everything from CNN Films.
MAX NOVEMBER HIGHLIGHTS
BOOKIE (November 30)
From Emmy-nominated creator Chuck Lorre (“The Big Bang Theory”) and Nick Bakay, this darkly funny comedy follows veteran Los Angeles bookie Danny (Sebastian Maniscalco) as the potential legalization of sports gambling in California threatens to upend his business for good.
Alongside best friend and former NFL player Ray (Omar J. Dorsey), side-hustling sister Lorraine (Vanessa Ferlito), and reluctantly reformed drug dealer Hector (Jorge Garcia), Danny must contend with his increasingly unstable clients as he tries to settle their debts – all while making plenty of risky bets of his own. Full of relatable mishaps, Bookie chronicles one man’s journey to adapt to an ever-changing world as he attempts to charm and con his way to the top.
RAP SH!T (November 9)
Season two of “Rap Sh!t” follows two estranged high school friends from Miami, Shawna (Aida Osman) and Mia (KaMillion), who reunite to form a rap group.
In their rise to fame, Shawna and Mia find themselves at a pivotal moment in their rap career as they are forced to decide if they will stay true to themselves or conform to the demands of the music industry.
JULIA (November 16)
In season two of “Julia,” with her trailblazing cooking show up and running on the air, Julia (Sarah Lancashire) grapples with her rising celebrity and what that means for her, her colleagues and her show. In season two, Julia and her devoted husband Paul return from Simca’s home in France to find that her success has changed everything.
Through her singular joie de vivre, she and her team must navigate WGBH, the White House and a threat from their past, while continuing to spearhead female-driven public television and confront social issues still prevalent today.
ALBERT BROOKS: DEFENDING MY LIFE (November 11)
Since the late 1960s, Albert Brooks has been a major force in American comedy with his smart, sometimes absurdist, and truly unique sense of humor. From stand-up, to acting, to writing and directing short films, to his seven, iconic, original motion pictures, including “Modern Romance,” “Lost in America,” “Mother,” and more, Brooks has paved the way for future generations and remains a comedic force in a league of his own.
With testimonials from some of the brightest comedy talents and serious thinkers, as well as family and friends, “Albert Brooks: Defending My Life” chronicles Brooks’ very early work all the way to present day. In this deep and personal conversation, Reiner and Brooks explore the origins and evolution of Brooks’ career, the impetus for his creativity, and the impact he has had on the world of comedy.
BLUE BEETLE (November 17)
From Warner Bros. Pictures comes the feature film “Blue Beetle,” marking the DC Super Hero’s first time on the big screen. The film, directed by Ángel Manuel Soto, stars Xolo Maridueña in the title role as well as his alter ego, Jaime Reyes.
Recent college grad Jaime Reyes returns home full of aspirations for his future, only to find that home is not quite as he left it. As he searches to find his purpose in the world, fate intervenes when Jaime unexpectedly finds himself in possession of an ancient relic of alien biotechnology: the Scarab.
When the Scarab suddenly chooses Jaime to be its symbiotic host, he is bestowed with an incredible suit of armor capable of extraordinary and unpredictable powers, forever changing his destiny as he becomes the Super Hero Blue Beetle.
SOUTH TO BLACK POWER (November 28)
“South to Black Power” is inspired by New York Times columnist and bestselling author Charles Blow’s provocative book, which calls for a reverse “great migration” of African Americans from the North back to the South to reclaim the land, political representation, and culture that they left behind, and in so doing, forever transform the power structure in America.
FIXER UPPER: THE HOTEL (November 8)
“Fixer Upper: The Hotel” follows Chip and Joanna Gaines’ most ambitious renovation to date as they transform a 100-year-old historic building near Magnolia Market into a boutique hotel – Hotel 1928 – showcasing their love for hospitality, restoration and their home city of Waco, Texas.
LITTLE RICHARD: I AM EVERYTHING (November 23)
The Max Original “Little Richard: I Am Everything” from CNN Films tells the story of the Black queer origins of rock n’ roll, exploding the whitewashed canon of American pop music to reveal the innovator — the originator — Richard Penniman. Through a wealth of archive and performance that brings us into Richard’s complicated inner world, the film unspools the icon’s life story with all its switchbacks and contradictions.
In interviews with family, musicians, and cutting-edge Black and queer scholars, the film reveals how Richard created an art form for ultimate self-expression, yet what he gave to the world he was never able to give to himself. Throughout his life, Richard careened like a shiny cracked pinball between God, sex and rock n’ roll. The world tried to put him in a box, but Richard was an omni being who contained multitudes – he was unabashedly everything.
GUMBO COALITION (November 6)
“Gumbo Coalition” follows two visionary civil rights leaders, Marc Morial and Janet Murguía, as they work to empower African American and Latino American communities through four turbulent years in America. Directed by two-time Academy Award-winning filmmaker Barbara Kopple, “Gumbo Coalition” takes us on an intimate — and sometimes humorous — journey into their lives, homes, and the family histories that motivate their united mission to create a more just and equitable country.
At a dramatic crossroads in American history, these leaders face some of their biggest challenges: the global pandemic, the murder of George Floyd, and the 2020 presidential election and its aftermath.
