‘Call Jane’ Due Digitally Dec. 6, Blu-ray and DVD Dec. 13 From Lionsgate

The drama Call Jane arrives for digital purchase Dec. 6, and on Blu-ray, DVD, and VOD Dec. 13  from Lionsgate. 

Inspired by true events of Chicago’s underground abortion network known as The Jane Collective, Call Jane stars Sigourney Weaver, Elizabeth Banks and Kate Mara.

Set in Chicago in 1968 as a city and the nation are on the brink of political upheaval, the film follows suburban housewife Joy (Banks), her husband and daughter, who are living the all-American dream until Joy’s life-threatening pregnancy forces her to navigate a medical establishment unwilling to help. This impossible situation leads Joy to the “Janes,” an underground network providing the only available alternative, helmed by fierce advocates Virginia (Weaver) and Gwen (Wunmi Mosaku), who not only save Joy’s life, but change it forever.

‘A Teacher,’ ‘The Queen’s Gambit’ Top TV Time Charts

FX’s “A Teacher” was the top rising show and Netflix’s “The Queen’s Gambit” was again the top binge program on the TV Time charts for the week ended Nov. 15.

“A Teacher,” available on Hulu beginning Nov. 10, is a drama series examining the complexities and consequences of an illicit sexual affair between a young teacher (Kate Mara) and her student (Nick Robinson).

“The Queen’s Gambit,” which debuted on Netflix Oct.  23, is a coming-of-age story following a young Beth Harmon (Anya Taylor-Joy), abandoned and entrusted to a Kentucky orphanage in the late 1950s, who discovers an astonishing talent for chess while developing an addiction to tranquilizers provided by the state as a sedative for the children.

TV Time is a free TV viewership tracking app that tracks consumers’ viewing habits worldwide and is visited by more than 1 million consumers every day, according to the service. The weekly “Binge Report” ranks shows with the most binge sessions. A binge session is when four or more episodes of a show are watched and tracked in the app in a given day. The “Shows on the Rise” chart is calculated by determining the week-over-week growth in episodes watched for a given program. The network displayed is the network where the show first aired (e.g. “Friends” on NBC).
