Showtime has announced the movies, TV shows, and sports programming coming to the service in July. The Showtime July 2022 lineup includes the second season of We Hunt Together, the murder-mystery series that follows the lives of DS Lola Franks (Eve Myles) and DI Jackson Mendy (Babou Ceesay) as they work to unearth the identity of the town’s new, enigmatic serial killer, The Birdman.
The case brings Freddy Lane (Hermione Corfield) back into the picture as the murderer targets those close to the three main characters. As more details about the case arise, more killings occur, and with the protagonists slowly uncovering more about each other at the same time, nothing is ever quite what it seems.
The upcoming three-part Showtime documentary Supreme Team examines the infamous legacy of the eponymous Queens, New York organized crime syndicate. The documentary finds leaders Kenneth “Supreme” McGriff and Gerald “Prince” Miller in a discussion on the impact the group had on hip-hop and society at large.
The two also engage in conversation concerning the broader cultural dynamics of The Supreme Team with noteworthy community members such as LL Cool J and New York City Mayor Eric Adams.
The Showtime July 2022 slate also includes City on a Hill Season 3. Jackie Rohr (Kevin Bacon) takes on a security job for a wealthy family where secrets slowly reveal themselves. ADA Decourcy Ward (Aldis Hodge) does his best to find fairness and integrity in a broken criminal justice system.
Siobhan Quays (Lauren E. Banks) witnesses this corruption in the system firsthand when representing a severely injured construction worker, all while sorting through her own trauma from the past year. Jenny Rohr (Jill Hennessy) is similarly haunted by her past, given scarring experiences with her father.
Showtime examines the intersection of sports and culture in the NYC Point Gods. This documentary examines the cultural phenomena of New York City in the ‘80s and the developments in hip-hop and the style of basketball that have lasted to this day.
The poised techniques of the city’s point guards, combined with their resilience off the court, left an impact on all those who witnessed them play. Their influence continues to shape how the game is played, with their methods still utilized worldwide today.
In the out-of-this-world finale of The Man Who Fell to Earth, Faraday (Chiwetel Ejiofor) elaborates on the secrets he warned the audience about in the show’s pilot, while more surprises send the CIA into a freefall and alter the course of the planet as we know it.
In the realm of Showtime Championship Boxing, Filipino featherweight world champion Mark Magsayo defends his title for the first time on Saturday, July 9, when he faces off against Mexico’s unbeaten former world champion, Rey Vargas, live from the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.
Additionally, Two-division world champion and Brooklyn fan-favorite Danny Garcia clashes with new contender Jose Benavidez Jr. in the former’s super welterweight debut at The Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, on Saturday, July 30.
Bellator MMA also comes out swinging this July with current lightweight champion and Bellator MMA favorite Patricky “Pitbull,” scheduled to face off against No. 1-ranked contender Sidney Outlaw on Friday, July 22. In the co-main event, Douglas Lima, a former welterweight champion, takes on emerging No. 4-ranked contender, Jason Jackson.
Also included as part of the Showtime July 2022 programming are a handful of streaming collections. The “Summer Lovin’” collection highlights the perfect summer romantic comedies. Additionally, the “If You’ve Got the Crime, We’ve Got the Time” collection highlights the network’s most popular whodunits, murder mysteries, and crime thrillers.

SHOWTIME JULY 2022 ORIGINALS
WE HUNT TOGETHER – Streaming Season Premiere: Friday, July 1
After season one’s shocking finale, season two of “We Hunt Together” picks up with conflicted odd couple cops DS Lola Franks (Eve Myles) and DI Jackson Mendy (Babou Ceesay) dead set on nailing Freddy Lane (Hermione Corfield) for her murderous role in their last case. When the outrageous new serial killer, The Birdman, strikes and brings Freddy into their orbit once more, they are determined to get ahead in this complicated and cunning hunt and lock the killer up once and for all.
However, in a race to find The Birdman as the body count stacks up, it soon becomes clear that this new, devilishly dark murderer has a bigger plan that forces both Freddy and the police to chase them through the shadows as they try to unmask the sinister killer who starts to target victims close to Freddy, Jackson, and Lola – and makes them question just whom they can trust.
SUPREME TEAM – Streaming Three-Part Documentary Premiere: Friday, July 8
In collaboration with Mass Appeal as part of the network’s HIP HIP 50 banner, “Supreme Team” chronicles the notorious Queens, New York crime syndicate and tells the real story directly from its two leaders, Kenneth “Supreme” McGriff and Gerald “Prince” Miller, in a three-part documentary.
Through the voices of these two infamous entrepreneurs and the syndicate’s members, as well Hip-Hop legend LL Cool J, New York City Mayor Eric Adams, journalist Joy Reid, singer Ashanti, producer Irv Gotti and others in the local community, politics, law enforcement, academia and popular culture, viewers are given access beyond the headlines to examine the broader cultural dynamics and the impact that this small group from South Jamaica Queens has held on hip hop and society at large.
CITY ON A HILL – Streaming Season Premiere: Friday, July 29
Season three of “City on a Hill” brings us to Boston’s high society Beacon Hill. Having left the FBI and thrown his badge into Boston Harbor, Jackie Rohr (Kevin Bacon) lands a lavish new gig running security for a wealthy family. Life is good until secrets begin to unravel. When an investigation opens, ADA Decourcy Ward (Aldis Hodge) sees an opportunity to finally rip out the machinery perpetuating a broken criminal justice system.
Siobhan Quays (Lauren E. Banks), representing a construction worker who was severely injured on the Big Dig, encounters the city’s corruption firsthand, all while coping with the traumatic events of her past year. As Jenny Rohr (Jill Hennessy) can attest, given her history with her father, some experiences will haunt you beyond your breaking point.
NYC POINT GODS – Streaming Documentary Premiere: Friday, July 29
“NYC Point Gods” sheds light on the gritty blight of New York City in the ’80s, which revealed a cultural resilience, one that ultimately birthed East Coast hip-hop and inspired a style of play on the basketball court that endures today. The elegance of the city’s elite point guards, molded by the packed streetball courts, unwritten rules of bruising pickup games, and the perseverance required to survive everyday life, has come to define an era of basketball and American culture.
Their transcendent style is etched in the consciousness of all who have witnessed these prodigies. The New York City point gods’ lasting impact on the game of basketball can be seen around the world in virtually every league. The film features a who’s who of point guard deities: Rafer Alston, Kenny Anderson, Mark Jackson, Stephon Marbury, God Shammgod, Kenny Smith, Rod Strickland, and Dwayne “Pearl” Washington.
They brought theatrics, dizzying ball control, stylish misdirection, and a shake-and-bake game from the asphalt to the city’s hallowed high school gyms and to the NBA, orchestrating successful offenses at every level. “NYC Point Gods” explores not just how the city shaped these distinct players but how these wunderkinder shaped and advanced the game under their watch and whose impact continues to shape the game today.
THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH – Streaming Season Finale: Sunday, July 3
Based on the Walter Tevis novel of the same name and the iconic film that starred David Bowie, “The Man Who Fell to Earth” follows a new alien character played by Chiwetel Ejiofor who arrives on Earth at a turning point in human evolution and must confront his own past to determine our future. The series also stars Naomie Harris as Justin Falls, a brilliant scientist and engineer who must conquer her own demons in the race to save two worlds.
Additional stars include Clarke Peters, Jimmi Simpson, Bill Nighy, Sonya Cassidy, Rob Delaney, Joana Ribeiro, and Annelle Olaleye. In the out-of-this-world finale (Ejiofor) elaborates on the secrets he warned the audience about in the show’s premiere, while more surprises send the CIA into a freefall and alter the course of the planet as we know it.
