TGIF, Thank God it’s Friday! The week is almost over, and fans are looking for fresh new film and television releases to watch this weekend. Well, ABS has got you covered!

This week’s What to Watch list has tons to watch whether you’re looking for laughter, animation, mystery, comedy, or history for all age groups.

Meanwhile, futuristic sci-fi lovers will enjoy series like “Supa Team 4,” which marks Netflix’s first original African-American animated series, or other picks such as “Kizazi Moto: Generation Fire.”

Marvel fans have been enjoying Samuel L. Jackson‘s suit game in the Disney+ series, “Secret Invasions.” Meanwhile, history buffs will appreciate the storytelling in the true story of Emmett “Till,” which was robbed of several Oscar nominations.

“Unfortunately, my film, Till, was not nominated,” Whoopi Goldberg told Entertainment Weekly. The Academy Board member doubles as a producer for the film and plays Emmett’s grandmother, Alma. “But we do want to congratulate all the nominees, because many of them have been here and it’s wonderful to say congrats, so that’s what we’ll do.”

There are also new movies starting Jamie Foxx, John Boyega, and new series such as season three of “Sweet Magnolias,” and the Eva Marcille-led “All The Queen’s Men.”

And for a special treat, tune into Big RV Remix, hosted by Outkast’s Big Boi and his business partner, Janice Faison. It’s something like MTV’s “Pimp My Ride,” but instead of cars, the funny duo are renovating oversized RVs.

Check out this list of new movies and TV shows hitting streaming services this weekend.
