Anticipated shows and movies land on HBO in February.

HBO will unroll a slew of original series and riveting documentaries in March. The month’s biggest title is the bombshell Michael Jackson documentary Leaving Neverland, which explores the sexual abuse allegations levied against the pop star by two young boys. Amy Berg’s four-part docuseries The Case Against Adnan Syed revisits the case of Syed, who was convicted in 2000 of murdering his then-girlfriend Hae Min Lee. Subscribers looking for some slightly lighter fare can rest assured: Barry season 2 and Veep season 7 also premiere on the last day of the month.

Check out the full listings below.

Breslin and Hamill: Deadline Artists

Breslin and Hamill: Deadline Artists examines the fascinating, intersecting lives of Jimmy Breslin and Pete Hamill, the famed New York City truth-tellers who openly challenged their beloved city and the nation. Aside from highlighting two of the Big Apple’s print journalism beacons, the film also rekindles a romance for the written word. Breslin and Hamill: Deadline Artists proves to be a thoughtful document, harkening back to a time when talented writers could speak above the chaos, providing clarity rarely seen today. —Kahron Spearman

Crashing season 3

In season three of Crashing, Pete Holmes and executive producer Judd Apatow continue to parse through the fallout from the shift happening in comedy and culture right now. The season’s other major focus is on Pete himself, his evolving spiritual life, and his exciting but sometimes scary new relationship with a woman named Kat (Madeline Wise). Crashing may not be the best show about spirituality, or relationships, or even comedy to come along in recent years. But by getting more daring, the series, like Pete, has started to find its voice. —Chris Osterndorf
