Thanks to the collaboration between Lucky Red and TimVision, two docu-films on the life and career of two Italian icons, Ennio Morricone and Salvatore Ferragamo, are also coming soon as exclusives.
- ‘Ennio: il maestro’, directed and narrated by the Oscar-winning director Giuseppe Tornatore, tells the story of the great maestro’s extraordinary career. The docu-film contains archive footage, interviews and the most important moments of the composer’s artistic life.

TimVision continues to provide exclusive premières of exciting series featuring big stars, topical issues and inspired by literary works. 'The Good Fight’ returns on 19 August with the fifth season of the legal drama in which the lawyer Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) is forced to wonder if it’s the right thing for her to be involved in running an African American law firm with Liz (Audra McDonald). In the meantime, Marissa (Sarah Steele) and the studio maintain ties with Hal Wackner (Mandy Patinkin), a citizen of Chicago who decides to open a court in the back of a copy shop. The full series is only available on TimVision.
The BBC drama ‘The North Water’ with Colin Farrell, based on Ian McGuire’s novel of the same name, which tells of a troubled expedition to the Arctic in the 1800s, is coming soon as an exclusive première, along with the second season of the anthological rom-com, ‘Love Life’, with this chapter featuring William Jackson Harper as the male lead.
The autumn will see the release of the TV series ‘Chapelwaite’ as an exclusive première, starring Adrien Brody and inspired by Stephen King’s short story ‘Jerusalem’s Lot’.
The catalogue will grow even richer in the next few months thanks to hit TV shows that have received critical and public acclaim, such as ‘Orphan Black’, ‘The Good Doctor’, ‘Timeless’ and ‘The Shield’.
TIMVISION FOR YOUNGER VIEWERS
In August TimVision will release 128 remastered episodes of ‘Holly and Benji’, an iconic series dedicated to football and loved by generations of children.
Next up are seven appointments with ‘Me contro te’, Luì and Sofì, the craziest couple on the Internet who share the days with their followers.
Plenty of space is also dedicated to cartoons using sign language.
TimVision, in addition to the selection of films, TV series and entertainment programmes available in its catalogue and that of its partners, offers several original productions covering topics Italians are passionate about. Among the many being prepared for September, two new programmes will debut:
- A show dedicated to Fantasy Football will accompany fans on TimVision throughout the next Serie A TIM championship. Eight talents from the world of sport, entertainment and music, who love football, will gather around a table to play TimVision Fantasy Football. Each week they will analyse the previous day’s results, come up with a ranking, and study the formations and physical condition of the players. A fun talk show about the passion for football and Fantasy Football, a game that involves millions of fans each day.
- Di Moda will bring the 2021 autumn-winter fashion collections to TimVision. Eight episodes with the first talk show where three experts from the fashion world will comment on the fashion shows of famous Italian and international brands. This show provides a front-row seat at the runways with professionals providing a commentary and their advice on what to wear when the clothes arrive in the shop windows.
The appointment with the 'Riccardo Muti Italian Opera Academy’ returns to TimVision. The talent show follows a group of young aspiring orchestra directors, selected from around the world, during all phases of preparation – from piano rehearsals with the singers to rehearsals with the orchestra – through which Riccardo Muti conveys his interpretative idea not only to the young musicians but also to the public. The title of the opera chosen is ‘Nabucco’ by Giuseppe Verdi. For the first time the Riccardo Muti Italian Opera Academy will be organised in collaboration with Fondazione Prada which will host the Academy’s activities in its spaces in Milan.
It is also the second season for ‘Dr Giordy’ with Chiara Giordano who in her veterinary clinic surrounded by nature, along with her staff, takes care of animals and everything that concerns them: from fostering puppies looking for a home to treating minor diseases, nutritional issues and reports of lost animals.
