Kick Off 2021 With These Titles Streaming on Stan in January

The Watch

The promise of 2021 brings with it not only a chance for resolutions to be broken within a week and the infinite possibility of the year ahead, but the chance for some good old fashioned escapism courtesy of our friends at Stan

The streaming service will kick off the new year by premiering new original series Bump which tackles the topic of teen pregnancy. The 10-part drama series centres around Oly (Nathalie Morris, Black Christmas), an ambitious and high-achieving teenage girl who has a surprise baby; and the complications that ensue for two families.

Set in and around a high school in contemporary inner Sydney and following the main character’s home, the show explores unexpected motherhood, unwelcome new relatives, and unintended consequences with humour and emotional honesty.

Starring Australian staple, Claudia Karvan as Oly’s mum, Angie (who also serves as producer), Bump is described as “sharply funny” and a fast-paced relationship drama.

If you’re less about the colic and more about the comics, then The Watch is the show for you. This eight-part-high-concept-drama is led by Game of Thrones alum Richard Dormer and follows an unlikely group of misfits, The City Watch, who are forced to find the courage to save the world, surprising even themselves in the process. 

The comedic yet thrilling series pits trolls, werewolves, wizards and other improbable heroes against an evil plot to resurrect a great dragon which would lead to the destruction of life as they know it.

And that is just the beginning, with the streamer offering small screen goodness all month long. See the full list of what’s on below.
