Young Rock | Binge now | 13L
Before Jungle Cruise. Before Jumanji. Before WWE… Even the world’s biggest star started small. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s latest TV offering, Young Rock, now on Showmax, is a sitcom based on his own life.
The 11-part first season goes back to Dwayne’s roots as a 10-year-old in Hawaii, his high school years in Pennsylvania, and his university years in Miami, all within the (as yet) fictional framework of the actor and former pro-wrestler running as a candidate in the 2032 US Presidential Election.
Alex Rider | Binge now | 13VL
With Season 2 of Alex Rider just launched in the UK and the US and due to hit our screens next year, the December holidays are the perfect time to join the teens on the couch for the debut season of the show The Guardian calls “The teen James Bond”.
The family action series is adapted from Foyle’s War creator Anthony Horowitz’s beloved teen spy novels, which have sold over 20 million copies in 30 countries.
