Presto in July
Presto today announced key programming premiering in July, headlined by the highly anticipated arrival of season 5 of comedy hit Modern Family, which includes the episode titled, ‘Australia’ filmed entirely on Australian shores. The hit series invites us to take a hilarious look at a different take on family life. Starring Ed O’Neill (Jay Pritchett) and Sofia Vergara (Gloria Pritchett), the ‘mockumentary’ style show follows the adventures of family members as they eagerly share their own family perspectives with viewers. Modern Family season 5 joins seasons 1-4 starting today on Presto.
Presto also shared the news that hit crime drama Aquarius is returning for a second season and would air in Australia, exclusively on Presto, in 2016. Aquarius season one continues its linear broadcast through July and will add new episodes of season one to the service, in line with the US broadcast.
Also joining the Presto line up in July is a slate of HBO favourites sure to delight subscribers. Curb Your Enthusiasm stars Seinfeld co-creator Larry David as himself in an unsparing but tongue-incheek depiction of his life. The show features a raft of celebrities playing themselves in a series of improvised side-splitting comedy sketches. All 8 seasons of Curb Your Enthusiasm will be available to stream on demand.
Six Feet Under, stars Australian actress Rachel Griffiths alongside brothers played by with Michael C. Hall (Dexter) and Peter Krause who take us into the darkly humorous world of the Fisher family, who own and run a funeral home in Los Angeles. Each episode takes a decidedly unique slant at the issue of death against the backdrop of a family who have reluctantly taken over management of a funeral home following the death of the family patriarch.
New Zealand meets New York as the critically acclaimed HBO comedy Flight of the Conchords lands on Presto. Musical comics Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement blend humour and harmony as they search for love and success in the Big Apple.
Little Britain USA transplants some of the most popular Little Britain antics across the pond as British comedy stars David Walliams and Matt Lucas come stateside to share their unapologetic humour.
In addition, Presto in July welcomes two acclaimed miniseries. Mildred Pierce stars Kate Winslet as a young mother struggling to make a new life for her and her two daughters during the Great Depression; and Empire Falls, which tells the story of Miles Roby, the unassuming manager of the Empire Grill, who is plagued by flashbacks of his family when he was a child, including a mysterious affair between his mother and a suitor, the details of which might answer some questions Miles has had his entire life.
On the movie front, Presto Movies and Presto Entertainment subscribers can enjoy the action packed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, featuring the martial arts escapades everyone’s favourite reptilian superheroes, Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michelangelo; musical drama Whiplash, about an ambitious young jazz drummer, in pursuit of rising to the top of his elite music conservatory; and sci-fi action flick, Lucy, starring Scarlett Johansson who, after receiving an unexpected overdose of a mystery drug is imbued with superhuman abilities, including telekinesis and telepathy.
