AMC original shows will temporarily come to Max in September

Among the major streaming services, AMC+ has a library of top-tier shows, but not as many subscribers as its rivals. However, some of AMC’s series will soon get a much larger showcase. Warner Bros. Discovery and AMC announced a deal that will temporarily bring several AMC originals to Max under the banner AMC+ Picks starting September 1. AMC+ Picks on Max will be ad-free, and it will be available on all tiers of Max at no additional charge.

Certain shows, like Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, and The Walking Dead, will not be included in this deal because the streaming rights to those series are locked up with Netflix. However, many other series from AMC and BBC America are included, including Killing Eve seasons 1-4, Fear the Walking Dead seasons 1-7, Interview with the Vampire season 1, Dark Winds season 1, and A Discovery of Witches seasons 1-3.

The catch to this deal is that it will only run for two months on Max. Beyond that, the AMC shows will presumably revert to being AMC+ exclusives.

“AMC Networks makes great shows, and our goal is to bring these shows to as many people as possible, in ways that best serve viewers,” said AMC Studios President Dan McDermott in a statement. “This promotional arrangement with Warner Bros. Discovery is a terrific opportunity to serve up some of our most popular and critically acclaimed programming to millions of Max subscribers in the U.S. for two full months.”

“Subscribers turn to Max to find a deep and diverse selection of stories for the whole household,” added Warner Bros. Discovery’s Meredith Gertler. “The AMC+ collection pop-up is an excellent example of how we can use innovative strategies to add value to our content offering.”

AMC+ Picks on Max will run through October 31. And that dovetails nicely with CNN Max, which hits the service on September 27.

Celebrate Mother’s Day with HBO, Max, and a lot of great movies and TV shows
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler in Baby Mama.

This Sunday, May 12, is Mother's Day, making it the perfect time to look back and reflect on the mothers in our lives. It's a special day for anyone whose parents are still with them, or even an occasion to celebrate between spouses and partners with children of their own. However you choose to mark the event, Max has shared a list of its top movies and TV shows for Mother's Day.

Topping the list of Feel Good Comedies is Baby Mama, the 2008 film starring Saturday Night Live legends Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as a woman, Kate Holbrook, and her freewheeling surrogate, Angie Ostrowski, respectively. Almost all of the selections on that list deal with motherhood in some way. The only list here with only slight connections to the shared theme is Coming of Age Movies and TV. But look at that list this way: They're just suggestions that you can watch with your mothers or your partners. It's entirely up to you.

April was a serious month for HBO and Max. The channel and streamer wrapped up season 2 of its excellent crime drama Tokyo Vice and premiered an unsettling political thriller, The Sympathizer, starring recent Oscar-winner Robert Downey Jr. In addition to those two shows, Max hosted the streaming debut of The Zone of Interest, one of the most unsettling and controversial Holocaust movies ever made.

So it's not a surprise that Max is going to lighten up a little. Sure, there's the odd devastating drama like The Iron Claw with Zac Efron, but there's also the debut of Emmy-winning comedy Hacks' newest season. For those YA fans out there, John Green's Turtles All the Way Down finally makes its way to small screens worldwide. There's something for everyone this month on HBO and Max, so read below to find out something that suits your interests.
