The subscription rate for the PBS Masterpiece Prime Video Channel is $5.99 per month with an Amazon Prime or Prime Video subscription.

“Munch”

The French legal drama “Munch” debuts April 15. It follows Gabrielle Munchowski, a lawyer who bends the law to get her way and will stop at close to nothing to defend her clients. Running a law firm with her friend and associate Hubert Bellanger, Munch and her team take on tough cases, defending the innocent and marginal, against all odds. Bold and irreverent, she will cross any line.

The darkly comedic Italian drama series “The Mafia Only Kills in Summer,” based on the film of the same name, debuts April 22. Set in 1970s Sicily, it follows Salvatore, a young boy whose family becomes unintentionally entangled with the Palermo mafia. Nothing escapes the 10-year-old’s gaze as he sees everything going on around him, from the mafia’s oppression and his crazy family dynamic to the magnificence of his first love Alice.

The British dramatic thriller “The Trick” starts streaming April 22. It’s the true story of Philip Jones, the world-renowned professor and director of climate research at the University of East Anglia who was the eye of an international media storm and victim of cyberterrorism that led to the 2009 Climategate scandal. In November 2009, the IT servers at the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, U.K., were hacked and hundreds of emails stolen. Days later the stolen emails were posted online and an international media storm exploded. Jones and his team found themselves in the middle of a major investigation with their 30 years of research being questioned in the first “fake news” attack. “The Trick” charts the professor’s (Jason Watkins) unjustified persecution and the ultimate exoneration of both Jones and the science, while his wife Ruth (Victoria Hamilton) stands fiercely by his side throughout it all.
