Everything new on Netflix, Hulu, Paramount+, Disney+, Apple TV+, HBO Max, Shudder and Amazon Prime this week.

First Wednesday, June 22:

Love & Gelato — The 2016 bestseller becomes a feature-length romantic comedy in which a young woman visits Florence to keep a promise but ends up genuinely falling in love with the place. You know, just like what happened to you with Ocala. (Netflix)

snowflake mountain – Spoiled Gen Zs must navigate the rugged terrain of the great outdoors in a reality show that couldn’t be better placed to tap into the resentments of the oldies. See how bad you think student debt is after a cow kicked you in the skull, Tyler! (Netflix)

Umbrella Academy – After their adventures back in time in season 2, the gang returns to 2019 in season 3, only to find that the world isn’t as it should be.

Premieres on Thursday, June 23:

the bear — In this half-hour sitcom, a chef more accustomed to high-end cuisine finds himself running a sandwich shop in Chicago after his brother’s suicide. If the thing was on Shudder, I’d be asking very pointed questions about what they did with that corpse. (FX on Hulu)

Beavis and Butt-Head make the universe — OK, so the previous feature of these lame, Beavis and Butthead make America, was about a bust. But that was 26 years ago, so maybe Mike Judge has learned a thing or two about how to make long-form characters work since then. The story has our heroes rushed back in time from 1998 to try and make sense of the crazy modern world. Dialogue I can’t wait to hear: “Looking back, Beavis, Kip Winger was a highly believable performer.” (Primary +)

Chronicles of Gordita — Eva Longoria and Zoe Saldana are among the executive producers of a series set in 1980s Miami, with the arrival of an expatriate Dominican family at the center of all manner of pithy observations of life in the Reagan’s America. Pivotal Observation #1: “With everything we’re seeing now, isn’t it any wonder that one day we vote for Ron DeSantis by a two-to-one margin?” (HBO Max)

Little Helen – Now that her talk show is over, your only way to see Ellen DeGeneres on a regular basis is as a lively 7-year-old. To facilitate the transition, producers of Little Helen Season 3 works in storylines in which it turns a blind eye to bullying on the playground. (HBO Max)

Menudo: Forever young – Abuse allegations against Svengali band Edgardo Diaz will be confronted head-on in this docuseries about the legendary career of the seminal boy band. If it’s a success, stay tuned for Lou Pearlman: dead forever. (HBO Max)

Queen — A Polish-born tailor’s attempts to renew his relationship with his daughter become complicated when she learns he was once a drag queen. What, did she think he had just been born with this talent for pulling up evening dresses? (Netflix)

Developer — In 1987 Chicago, a stripper and a religious protester find themselves trapped together in a peep show booth while a cataclysm that could be rapture rages outside. Wow, I can’t believe anyone else has this dream too. (Shudder)

First Friday, June 24:

At home with the Gils – Brazilian singer-songwriter and former politician Gilberto Gil gathers his entire family in Rio to stage a gigantic concert, but the business forces them to examine racism and other important issues. It’s like Thanksgiving at the Kardashians, except people are talking instead of posting TikToks. (Amazon Premium)

Unlimited (Sin Limits) — Celebrate the 500th anniversary of the first circumnavigation of our planet by watching this dramatization of the series, which features a lightly fictionalized account of the famous voyage begun by Ferdinand Magellan and completed by Juan Sebastián Elcano. How romantic is it? Well, Magellan’s second is Wishbone. (Amazon Premium)

Chloe – In the latest entry in a genre I’ll call “What Has Ingmar Bergman Wrought Up”, a young woman in her twenties takes on a new identity to investigate a woman’s death of the high society with which she became obsessed. “Some people need a life,” you laugh as you send your 152nd fan letter to the Appliance Direct lady. (Amazon Premium)

Booty – Maya Rudolph plays a billionaire divorcee who tries to recover from a public meltdown by dedicating herself to charity. Hey, I heard Kyle Mooney needs a document right now. (AppleTV+)

The man from Toronto – Kevin Hart and Woody Harrelson star in a feature-length buddy comedy in which an ordinary loser and a hitman get confused after sharing an Airbnb. Harrelson was a last-minute replacement for Jason Statham, and the film was originally intended for theaters before being sold for streaming. But the Airbnb was never going to be a bath sauna, no matter what Michael Musto says. (Netflix)

The man against the bee – Somewhere along the line, our society’s mysterious taste-makers – those who had already decreed that Keanu Reeves was a really, really good actor and the word “wet” is repellent for some reason – decided that Rowan Atkinson was actually funny, and now everyone just goes along with it. That’s why we have to watch the old Mr. Bean as a house keeper tormented by a pesky bee. For an entire movie? No, for an entire series! Are you sure we couldn’t just watch Keanu Reeves torture someone for saying “wet” for an hour? (Netflix)

Money Heist Korea: Common Economic Space – The hit Spanish crime drama has an East Asian spinoff, in which thieves attempt to steal currency from a reunified Korean peninsula. I think I now have the primary source for my PhD thesis, The glorious nation of North Korea must maintain its divine independence or else. (Netflix)

The one that got away – Here’s a poignant twist on the dating show’s concept: the contestants are all trying to get another try with someone they’ve been involved with in the past. “But seriously, who’s going to keep making the same mistake over and over again?” asks reality vlogger Rick Scott. (Amazon Premium)

To go up – Disney draws its inspiration from the true story of the Antetokounmpo brothers, whose life path has taken them from Nigeria to Greece to the NBA. (The NBA is a country now? Not that I’m complaining, mind you. At least they’d do something about AR-15s.) (Disney+)

Trevor: The Musical — From an Oscar-winning short to an Off-Broadway hit to a Disney filmed original, this is the story of a 13-year-old learning to accept his queer identity. If you try to watch in Florida, you will automatically be redirected to a Bargain marathon on Cozi TV. (Disney+)

Cristela Alonzo: middle class — The hard-working actress/comedian returns with a sequel to her first stand-up special, Lower class. In a surprise move, for number three, she’ll bypass the expected Higher class for the most thoughtful Drinky is the curse of the working class. (Netflix)

Only murders in the building – Season 2 turns the tables by having our true crime podcasters murder suspects themselves. Guest performers include Shirley MacLaine and Amy Schumer, the latter vanity lounge said to play a “slightly insufferable version of herself”. So it’s the “slightly” that makes the difference? (Hulu)
