What original content does this service have to offer its subscribers?
Oftentimes we are drawn to services such as HBO Max and Amazon Prime, because of their original shows and movies that can only be viewed with a subscription to their platform. This begs the question what sort of original content does Paramount+ have in their inventory? As an expansion of CBS All Access, subscribers have the luxury of their already established hit shows such as ‘Why Women Kill’, (Lucy Liu, Ginnifer Goodwin, Kirby Howell-Baptiste) a series highlighting women empowerment with the toggling storylines of three different women each living in a different decade who are all struggling with infidelity and ‘Tell Me a Story’ (Danielle Campbell, Paul Wesley) an anthology psychological thriller that puts a terrifying spin on famous fairy tales and fables.
They also have brand new shows to choose from such as ’The Stand’ (Whoopi Goldberg, Alexander Skarsgard, James Marsden) based on Stephen King’s novel of the same name, is a haunting show about the fight for survival after a man-made plague. Along with, ’One Dollar’ (Nathaniel Martello-White, Philip Ettinger) is a small-town mystery that explores how a single dollar brings together several individuals that become involved in multiple murders.
This platform has also brought new life into old shows with revivals of ‘The Twilight Zone’ (Jordan Peele) a modernized version of the cult-classic anthology series as well as the recently announced Nickelodeon reboots of hit shows that will directly target a younger audience. ’Rugrats’ will premier with a major CG-animation renovation with voice actors from the original series set to return along with live-action fan-favorite ‘iCarly’ (Miranda Cosgrove, Jerry Trainor, Nathan Kress) which will also feature it’s original cast as their characters work together navigating adulthood. Unlike other streaming services that usually thrive in one genre or age category over another, Paramount+ offers enough shows to satisfy the needs of every member of your family.
