March break has finally arrived and depending on the weather, this could be a great time to finally get outside and enjoy some fresh air *or* extend your winter hibernation from the comfort of your couch. If you’re set on the latter, CraveTV has you covered with HBO favourites, new comedy specials, and film fest picks.
The third season of Showtime’s award-winning Billions is set to premiere this month on CraveTV, with the new comedy special Darcy Michael Goes To Church debuting March 9.
Just in time for the new season to premiere later this month on HBO, catch up on Seasons 1 – 3 of the hilarious, tech-loving Silicon Valley. If you’re in the mood for something more serious, the true crime documentary Operation Odessa will be available on CraveTV after getting its world premiere at SXSW this month.
Season 3 of ‘Billions’ and the premiere of ‘Darcy Michael Goes To Church’ coming to CraveTV in March
BILLIONSSeason 3 premieres Sunday, March 25 at 10 p.m. ET
When we last saw the players on Billions, Bobby Axelrod (Damian Lewis) was looking like he was finally going to be taken down by his enemy, Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti). The two Emmy and Golden Globe winners will once against spar off against each other this season, with Asia Kate Dillon’s Taylor now a series regular. Also new this season will be John Malkovich, who will play a Russian billionaire (we can see it) and comedian Mike Birbiglia, who we assume won’t play anyone scary.CraveTV
DARCY MICHAEL GOES TO CHURCHMarch 9
In CraveTV’s first original stand up special produced with Just For Laughs, Vancouver native Darcy Michael delivers a sermon on all things funny. Raised by a mother who taught Sunday school and a father who was a police officer, Michael delves into his personal life, sharing stories his parents, his husband and his daughter sometimes wish he wouldn’t. Tackling everything from parenting as a gay man to casual drug use, no topic is off-limits in the Lord’s house.CraveTV
THE GIRLFRIEND EXPERIENCE – Season 1March 16
Based on Steven Soderbergh’s 2009 film, the TV adaptation of The Girlfriend Experience stars Riley Keough (aka Elvis Presley’s granddaughter) as a law student who spends her nights as a high-end escort in order to pay for school. Lord have mercy. Shot in Toronto, the series also stars House of Cards actor Paul Sparks and 24’s Mary Lynn Rajskub. Studying for the bar has never looked so sexy.Starz
PARTY DOWN – Seasons 1 and 2March 16
Before Jane Lynch became Coach Sue Sylvester on Glee, Adam Scott moved to Pawnee to star on Parks and Rec, and Martin Starr relocated to Silicon Valley, the three comedians starred alongside Ken Marino (Role Models, Childrens Hospital) and Lizzy Caplan (Masters of Sex) in the hilarious Party Down. Playing aspiring actors who work as caterers in LA, the series is co-written by Paul Rudd and featured a huge guest list, including J.K. Simmons, Ken Jeong, Kristen Bell and Kevin Hart. Listed by EW as one of the 25 best cult shows of the past 25 years, Party Down is the secret comedy gem that should not be kept secret.Starz
POWER – Season 1March 16
If you took the Sopranos and remade it with 50 Cent, you’d get Starz hit series Power. Omari Hardwick plays Ghost, a New York nightclub owner who is balancing his legitimate business along with his role in the illegal drug trade. Throw in a wife and a mistress, and things get complicated fast. The series also stars Jerry Ferrera and yes, 50 Cent, who you can find in the club. We weren’t kidding about the first part.Starz
SILICON VALLEY – Seasons 1-3March 2
The internet is the best place to find the funniest memes and viral videos, so it makes sense that a show about the internet is hilarious. Starring Canadian comedian Thomas Middleditch, The Big Sick’s Kumail Nanjiani, and The Office’s Zach Woods, Silicon Valley follows a group of techie friends working together in an incubator as they discover the next great app, called Pied Piper. On their way to App Store domination, they hit more than a few hiccups, including awkward exchanges with the opposite sex, billionaires who try to steal their ideas, and a lot of bad hoodies. So many bad hoodies. Plus, we can all agree the name Pied Piper is awful.HBO
OPERATION ODESSASaturday, March 31 at 9 p.m. ET
What happens when you mix a Miami playboy, a Cuban spy, and a Russian mobster? You get a documentary about a time in US history that is too outrageous to be made up. That’s exactly what happens in the new Showtime documentary Operation Odessa, which premieres at SXSW in March. Hear the totally unbelievable, totally real story about the guys who partied with Pablo Escobar and the law enforcement that tried to take them all down.CraveTV
DA VINCI’S DEMONS – Season 1March 16
We’ve all heard of Leonardo Da Vinci, but other than painting The Mona Lisa and The Last Supper, what do any of us (art majors not included) know about the artist and inventor? Thanks to the Starz series Da Vinci’s Demons, the turbulent life of one of the world’s greatest artists is examined. From his same-sex love affairs, to his involvement in Florentine politics, to his dealings with spies in the Catholic Church, the Mona Lisa suddenly seems like the least interesting part of Da Vinci’s incredible life (plus it’s way smaller than we thought it would be).Starz
THE WHITE QUEENThere aren’t nearly enough TV shows and movies about women being total badasses, but thankfully The White Queen is adding to the neglected narrative. Based on Philippa Gregory's historical novel, the BBC series follows historical figures Elizabeth Woodville, Margaret Beaufort and Anne Neville as they fight for power while England battles to decide who the next King will be. It’s been more than 500 years and we still haven’t learned to just put a woman in charge. StarzStarz
