Amazon has released its list of every new title coming to its Prime Video streaming service in August. New additions include “Free Meek,” which covers rapper Meek Mill’s 2017 arrest for probation violations, which sparked outrage. The Amazon Prime original series will be released on Aug. 9 and will re-investigate his original case and explore allegations of police corruption.

A trio of new comedy specials are coming in August as well. “Jim Gaffigan: Quality Time,” his seventh comedy special, arrives Aug. 16. Here, the four-time Grammy-nominated comedian talks about how he doesn’t understand why we aren’t more honest about the reasons we don’t want to attend events.

“Alice Wetterlund: My Mama is a Human and So Am I,” is out on Aug. 23, features comedian and actor Alice Wetterlund as she reveals her personal struggles with peeping toms, cat-rearing, alcoholism and the secret alien conspiracy behind new country music in her breakout comedy special.
