Pre­mieres: Not yet an­nounced (Ama­zon) The real story: Marine veteran Oliver North was a cen­tral fig­ure in the Iran-con­tra af­fair and its tele­vised hear­ings. In the 1980s, he was work­ing as a Na­tional Se­cu­rity Coun­cil staffer when an in­ves­ti­ga­tion re­vealed his in­volve­ment in a scheme to sell arms to Iran and di­vert the funds to rebels in Nicaragua. (Charges were even­tu­ally dropped.) The cast: Colin Far­rell as North.
