It’s new release Friday on Amazon Prime Video, and one of the brand-spanking new series that came out today is already climbing Prime’s Top 10 Shows and Movies list. The Rig, a Scottish supernatural thriller with an ecological bent and a couple actors from Game of Thrones, debuts at No. 2. Also new on the list is the Sterling K. Brown and Regina Hall comedy Honk for Jesus. Save Your Soul., which was previously a Peacock exclusive. Still on top of the list is the latest season of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, because Prime Video is for us dads.
