The new Showtime documentary series Outcry arrives on Sunday, July 5. This five-part program looks at the case of Greg Kelley, a high school football star who was convicted of child molestation, and the quest for truth and justice that followed after his sentencing. The series captures a community divided over the controversial case as the appeals process plays out over several years. 

Also arriving this month is the season finale of Black Monday, which airs July 19. The last few episodes of the comedy-drama starring Don Cheadle and Regina Hall sees two key characters at odds over a potential opportunity while another finds themselves involved in a risky proposition. 

Desus & Mero returns July 5. Episodes will air twice weekly on Sundays and Thursdays and will be shot remotely from the hosts’ homes. Finally, new episodes of The Chi continue to air on Sunday nights.

Multiplexes are closed across much of the U.S. and studios have pushed back release dates for their planned summer blockbusters.

In addition, the 2019 horror film Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark is streaming from July 4. And the acclaimed drama Waves (staring Sterling K. Brown), arrives July 17. It’s about the emotional journey of a suburban family in Florida as they cope with a devastating tragedy,
