Italian Crime Drama 'Gomorrah' Leads Hollywood Suite's Naughty and Nice December Programming

The holiday season is officially upon us, and Hollywood Suite is looking to make spirits bright with their December 2022 programming lineup — available uncut and commercial-free nationwide as part of their annual free preview from December 1 to January 5 via participating TV providers.

Rated one of the top five international shows of the decade by The New York Times, Italian crime sensation Gomorrah — starring Marco D'Amore and Salvatore Esposito — leads the lineup of new programming headed to the network this month.

Set in Naples, the show paints a vivid portrait of gritty Neapolitan crime organization the Camorra, which dates back to the 17th century. The HBO Max/Sky Italia series based on Roberto Saviano's bestselling book will make Hollywood Suite its exclusive English-Canadian home, with Seasons 1 to 3 premiering on-demand December 1 and broadcasting one episode weekly at 9 p.m. ET from December 6 onwards. Seasons 4 and 5 — as well as spin-off film The Immortal and documentary special The Gomorrah Files — are set to follow in the new year.

Also among the monthly batch of new programming for December is the festive Naughty or Nice collection, as well as the third instalment of Hollywood Suite's A Year in Film original documentary series.

The Nice List caters to fun for the whole family, with the likes of sci-fi action comedy Men in Black (Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones), audacious 11-year-old heroism in Harriet the Spy (Michelle Trachtenberg, Rosie O'Donnell) and star-studded yuletide rom-com The Holiday (Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet, Jack Black, Jude Law). On the other hand, the Naughty List is dedicated to the love of the anti-hero — with Martin Scorsese's iconic psycho-drama Taxi Driver (Robert DeNiro, Jodie Foster), alongside Quentin Tarantino's Uma Thurman-led homage to grindhouse cinema, Kill Bill, Vol. 1 and Kill Bill, Vol. 2.

A Year in Film explores how movies reflect the times in which they were created. The series will premiere new episodes on Sundays at 9 p.m. ET, beginning December 5 with 1971 — the year George Lucas and Steven Spielberg burst onto the scene. Season 3 will also see the examination of the years 1980 (The Empire Strikes Back, The Shining), 1997 (Men in Black, Titanic) and 2005 (Batman Begins, Brokeback Mountain).
