What's new on Netflix Canada, CraveTV and Amazon Prime Video in August

A monthly look at what’s scheduled to be added to the catalogues of streaming services Netflix Canada, CraveTV and Amazon Prime Video:


Netflix delivers prime binge material for the Labour Day long weekend with season 2 of “Ozark.” Jason Bateman and Laura Linney star as parents who are caught up in money laundering and a dangerous drug cartel in the Missouri Ozarks. In the new batch of episodes, they’re dealing with new, risky partnerships and a ruthless lawyer sent to the town by the crime syndicate.

Somebody’s bound to get burned as Joseph Gordon-Levitt oversees “The Roast of Bruce Willis,” the latest edition of Comedy Central’s searing evening of insult comedy. Taped in mid-July, the dais goes deep into Willis’s professional and personal failures to deliver jokes that walk the line of good taste. Guests include Willis’s former “Moonlighting” co-star Cybill Shepherd as well as Edward Norton and Martha Stewart. The special arrives Aug. 3 on CraveTV.

John Krasinski is the latest actor take a run at playing CIA analyst Jack Ryan. Amazon Prime Video’s new big-budget action series “Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan” puts him in the coveted role portrayed by Harrison Ford, Ben Affleck, Alec Baldwin and Chris Pine. The eight-episode show begins early in the character’s professional career when he comes across suspicious financial transactions that lead to a probe into a terrorist plot aimed at Paris.
