Taped at EartH in London, this A24 production promises an entertaining experience.

Following on December 21 is the Max Original comedy special GARY GULMAN: BORN ON 3RD BASE. Comedian and actor Gary Gulman shares hilarious insights on various topics, including his upbringing, eccentric family, and reflections on societal issues.

On December 4, Max introduces the HBO Original three-part documentary series MURDER IN BOSTON: ROOTS, RAMPAGE & RECKONING, produced and directed by Jason Hehir. Exploring racial tensions and a controversial investigation in 1989 Boston, the series delves into the impact on families, race relations, and justice.
