HIGHLIGHTS

Head Above Water
Available exclusively Friday, June 4
Series: Sports
This Australian Original four-part docuseries – featuring swimming legend Ian Thorpe AM, Olympic medalists Bronte Campbell OAM and Kyle Chalmers OAM, and former junior champion Cody Simpson – explores how these incredible athletes deal with the pressure in and out of the pool.

2021 Australian Swimming Trials
Live and exclusive from Saturday June 12-17
Live Sports
The 2021 Australian Swimming Trials will see the nation’s elite swimmers go head-to-head as they compete for their chance to pull on the green and gold and represent Australia at the upcoming Tokyo Games. Amazon Prime Video will exclusively stream every millisecond live across 240 countries and territories, at no additional cost to Prime members. Olympic and Paralympic medallists Grant Hackett OAM, Nicole Livingstone OAM, Annabelle Williams OAM and Giaan Rooney OAM have been announced as Amazon Prime Video commentators, along with noted sporting journalists Matt White and Jon Harker.

Amazon Prime Video will also broadcast the team selection announcements on the final days of competition.

Clarkson’s Farm
Available exclusively Friday, June 11
Series: Reality
Jeremy Clarkson is a journalist, a broadcaster, and a man who travels the world to slide sideways in supercars while shouting. He is not a farmer, which is unfortunate because he’s bought a 1,000-acre farm in the English countryside and decided to run it himself, despite knowing nothing whatsoever about farming. The series follows an intense, backbreaking and frequently hilarious year in the life of Britain’s most unlikely farmer and his team, as they contend with the worst farming weather in decades, disobedient animals, unresponsive crops, and an unexpected pandemic.  Helped only by his gang of agricultural associates, Clarkson quickly discovers that a modern farmer must be a conservationist, scientist, shepherd, shopkeeper, midwife, engineer, accountant and tractor driver, often at the same time. Despite the calamities that ensue, this is most definitely not “The Grand Tour goes farming.” Here on the farm the failures have real emotional consequences and Jeremy, completely out of his comfort zone, must lean on others as he strives to grow crops, rear sheep and pull off environmental projects that are close to his heart. And yes, you read that last bit correctly. This is Jeremy Clarkson as you’ve never seen him before.

Freaky
Available Friday, June 24
Genre: Comedy/Horror
Seventeen-year old Millie Kessler (Kathryn Newton) is just trying to survive the bloodthirsty halls of Blissfield High and the cruelty of the popular crowd. But high school is the least of her worries after swapping bodies with a deranged serial killer, The Butcher (Vince Vaughn), and discovering she has less than 24 hours before the changes become permanent.

Our Friend
Available exclusively Friday, June 15
Genre: Drama
Our Friend tells the inspiring and extraordinary true story of the Teague family – journalist Matt (Casey Affleck), his vibrant wife Nicole (Dakota Johnson) and their two young daughters – and how their lives are upended by Nicole’s heartbreaking diagnosis of terminal cancer. As Matt’s responsibilities as caretaker and parent become increasingly overwhelming, the couple’s best friend Dane Faucheux (Jason Segel) offers to come and help out. As Dane puts his life on hold to stay with his friends, the impact of this life altering decision proves greater and more profound than anyone could have imagined.
