Discovery’s new-ish streaming service, discovery+, continues to roll out new series and docs inspired by real life in June 2021.

What to stream on discovery+ in June 2021
Whether you’re a fan of true crime, a firm believer in the paranormal, or addicted to cooking shows, you’ll find something new to watch on discovery+ this month. The $4.99-per-month streaming service, which launched in January 2021, is adding Relentless, a docuseries about a filmmaker’s involvement in the disappearance of a young woman from Hannibal, Missouri; Pushing the Line, an adventure series about “the coolest sport you’ve never heard of”; and Budget Battle, which challenges gourmet chefs to create a meal on a shoestring budget.
Relentless focuses on the case of Christina Whittaker, a 21-year-old who vanished from the small town of Hannibal, Missouri. Eight months after her disappearance, filmmaker Christina Fontana met Whittaker’s mother, which eventually led her on an 11-year quest to discover what really happened to Whittaker. The series draws from more than 400 hours of Fontana’s footage and tells the story of both a search for a missing person and a filmmaker’s growing involvement in the story she is documenting. Streaming from June 28.
