The first double feature premiering on Pluto TV Movies includes comedy-drama film Celebrity and crime-comedy Bullets Over Broadway. Wild Man Blues, Barbara Kopple’s portrait of the auteur himself, will close out the four week spotlight on 13 December. On the closing weekend, a marathon of all titles will round up the special.

Apart from the Allen programming, Pluto TV The Grapevine (launching today) features hundreds of documentaries, unscripted series and reality programmes that take viewers on a tour of some of entertainment’s greatest icons and moments. Biography series Hollywood Remembers The Leading Ladies marks one of the highlights on the channel, with each every half-hour episode looking into the life of a legendary Hollywood actress such as Marilyn Monroe, Greta Garbo or Audrey Hepburn. Find a comfy spot to watch shows like Academy Award Winners First 50 years and Madonna: The Name of The Game.
Pluto TV Documentaries (launching today) is the new home for eye-opening real-life events. At launch, the programme already spans documentaries such as Cocaine Cowboys: Reloaded, which takes an unembellished look at drug exports and conflicts in Miami during the 1970s and 1980s. For all those who would have liked to become a successful athlete or still dream big, they can tune into the award-winning 1994 documentary Hoop Dreams, following two African-American high school students in Chicago determined to become professional basketball players.
“We’re closing out November by bringing our viewers entertaining, award-winning fiction and non-fiction offerings”, commented Olivier Jollet, Managing Director Europe at Pluto TV.“They are for those viewers fascinated by the entertainment world, stranger than fiction stories, and of course, fans of Woody Allen.”
Need another solid dose of nostalgia? Pluto TV has got you covered with The Beverly Hillbillies (launched 15 Nov). The channel presents the eponymous US classic following the Clampett family on their move to Beverly Hills after becoming oil millionaires.
All of Pluto TV’s November closing programme is available on all common OTT devices and via the Pluto TV app (Android and iOS).
