New shows and movies we can't wait to watch -- but aren't available to stream in Canada

One of the stars of the (recent) classic comedy series Broad City, Ilana Glazer, has co-written and stars in a new horror/comedy called False Positive. It debuts on Hulu in the U.S. on June 25, but there's no sign of it coming to Canada anytime soon.
“As if getting pregnant weren't complicated enough, Lucy sets out to uncover the unsettling truth about her fertility doctor.“
Want to see what Annie Murphy (Schitt's Creek) is up to next? Well, you better have one of those old tyme cable boxes with AMC in your package, because there's nowhere to stream it. Like other AMC shows, it will probably end up on Netflix eventually, but not when it debuts on TV June 20. Too bad, it's getting incredible reviews.
“Kevin Can FK Himself breaks television convention and blends multi-camera comedy with single-camera realism to make us ask, "who and what have we been laughing at all of these years?"“
Tuca & Bertie on Adult Swim (US)
Season one is available on Netflix but they cancelled Tuca & Bertie after that season. Adult Swim in the U.S. picked up season two, which debuts June 13 -- but not in Canada. It's not on TV or available for streaming.
“The story of two 30-year old bird women who live in the same apartment building.“

Jolt
Friday, July 23

Masters of the Universe: Revelation
Friday, July 23
Picking up after the events of the 1980s syndicated animated series He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, the Netflix-exclusive Revelation comes from Kevin Smith—yes, the one you are thinking of.

McCartney 3,2,1
Sunday, July 18

Schmigadoon!
Sunday, July 18
This Apple musical parody series stars Cecily Strong and Keegan-Michael Key as a couple on a backpacking trip who stumble upon a town in which all of the residents believe that they are living inside a classic movie musical.

A trio of horror films based on a series of R.L. Stine books will come to Netflix on consecutive Fridays this month. All three films take place in the same town (Shadyside) but in different time periods: 1994 and 1978, directed by Leigh Janiak, and 1666, helmed by veteran oddball Terence Malick.

Gunpowder Milkshake
Wednesday, July 14
Karen Gillan, Lena Headey, Carla Gugino, Michelle Yeoh, Angela Bassett, and Paul Giamatti star in an action film about an all-female group of assassins that unfolds over the course of a single evening. The film, which was once headed to theaters, has been earning early comparisons to Kill Bill (and John Wick) and a sequel is already in pre-production, so it might be okay to have high-ish expectations despite Netflix's uneven feature film track record.

The White Lotus

Written and directed by Mike White (Enlightened), this six-episode social satire spends a week at an exclusive Hawaiian resort where the guests, employees, and resort itself turn out to be far less perfect than first appearances would suggest.
