HBO Max will officially launch May 27th, 2020.
Check out the slate of six premium Max Originals that will be available to viewers on day one:
"Craftopia" is an epic kids-crafting competition show hosted and executive produced by YouTube influencer Lauren Riihimaki aka (LaurDIY). Creating and demonstrating crafts to over 8.9 million subscribers on her LaurDIY YouTube channel has been deemed the "millennial Martha Stewart" by Forbes.
On "Craftopia," 9 to 15-year old contestants put their imaginations to the test and make their crafting dreams come true in a magical studio. After racing to fill up their carts with inspiring materials from the studio “store,” crafters meet larger-than-life challenges, making truly inventive and amazing creations in order to take home the 'Craftrophia.'
"Craftopia" is executive produced by Rhett Bachner and Brien Meagher for B17 Entertainment.
Pulling directly from the underground ballroom community, voguing teams (aka "houses") must compete in unbelievable balls and showcase sickening fashion in order to achieve "legendary" status. The cast includes MC DaShaun Wesley and DJ MikeQ as well as celebrity judges Megan Thee Stallion, Jameela Jamil, Leiomy Maldonado, and Law Roach.
From Scout Productions, Emmy Award® winners David Collins, Rob Eric and Michael Williams serve as executive producers. Jane Mun and Josh Greenberg serve as executive producers and showrunners.
"Love Life," the first full-length scripted series to star Oscar® nominee Anna Kendrick, is about the journey from first love to last love, and how the people we're with along the way make us into who we are when we finally end up with someone forever. This fresh take on a romantic comedy anthology series is from creator and co-showrunner Sam Boyd and is produced by Lionsgate Television and Feigco Entertainment.
The series will follow a different protagonist’s quest for love each season, with each half-hour episode telling the story of one of their relationships. Anna Kendrick stars in the first season along with Zoë Chao, Peter Vack, Sasha Compere, and Lesley Manville.
Kendrick serves as an executive producer alongside Paul Feig and Dan Magnante. Sam Boyd, who wrote the pilot and directs, also executive produces with co-showrunner and executive producer Bridget Bedard.
"LOONEY TUNES CARTOONS"
"Looney Tunes Cartoons," an all-new series from Warner Bros. Animation starring the cherished Looney Tunes characters.
"Looney Tunes Cartoons" echoes the high production value and process of the original Looney Tunes theatrical shorts with a cartoonist-driven approach to storytelling. Marquee Looney Tunes characters will be featured in their classic pairings in simple, gag-driven and visually vibrant stories. The new series will include 80 eleven-minute episodes, each comprised of animated shorts that vary in length and include adapted storylines for today’s audience. Fans can also look forward to holiday-themed specials.
"Looney Tunes Cartoons" is produced by Warner Bros. Animation and features a talented group of voice cast members including Eric Bauza, Jeff Bergman and Bob Bergen. Pete Browngardt and Sam Register serve as executive producers.
"THE NOT TOO LATE SHOW WITH ELMO"
Elmo is the host of his very own talk show and he's going to bring you some (not-too-late) fun with an all-new, celeb-studded talk show series. This brand-new "primetime" series brings familiar Sesame Street friends like Elmo, Cookie Monster, celebrity guests, and laughs the whole family can enjoy!
Elmo will interview guests such as fellow late-night hosts Jimmy Fallon and John Oliver, comedian John Mullaney, New York Times best-selling author Kwame Alexander, actress Blake Lively, and award-winning musical acts Lil Nas X and The Jonas Brothers. "The Not Too Late Show with Elmo" is produced by Sesame Workshop.
"ON THE RECORD"
Directed and produced by Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering, and first reported by the New York Times, "On The Record" presents the powerful haunting story of music executive Drew Dixon as she grapples with her decision to become one of the first women of color, in the wake of #MeToo, to come forward and publicly name hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons in a sexual assault.
The documentary, which premiered at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival to rave reviews, chronicles not only Dixon's story but that of several other accusers – Sil Lai Abrams, Sheri Sher – delving deeply into the ways women of colors' voices are all too often silenced and ignored when they allege sexual assault; as well as the cultural forces that pressure them to remain silent.
"On The Record" is produced by Dick and Ziering's Jane Doe Films with Dan Cogan, Geralyn Dreyfous and Jenny Raskin for Impact Partners, Regina K Scully for Artemis Rising, Ian Darling for Shark Island Institute and Abigail Disney for Level Forward serving as executive producers.
