February is all about sports on NBC.
With two weeks of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics airing for two straight weeks, and Super Bowl LVI falling smack in the middle (both massive sporting events are on NBC), sexy series premieres are in short supply in this short month. That said, there are still some compelling shows to check out if ski jumps and triple axels and 720 backside corks are not your thing.
Speaking of sexy, before the skiing, skating and snowboarding really get rolling in Beijing, Hulu’s limited series Pam & Tommy will kick off the month on Feb. 2. The series, starring Lily James and Sebastian Stan, tells the story of how Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee’s sex tape ended up being the first internet porn scandal but certainly not the last.
The month concludes with the final-season premieres of two critically acclaimed and female-fronted series – BBC America’s Killing Eve and FX’s Better Things.
Throughout February, watch for lots of upcoming series promotion on NBC as the network tries to capitalize on two of TV’s biggest audiences. Right off the bat, NBC will launch two new series – The Endgame and America’s Got Talent: Extreme – on February 21, the night after the Olympics closes.
