More Peabody Winners

Last week, The Savvy Screener presented a guide to streaming the 12 Peabody Awards documentary winners. Now, it’s time to look at the seven entertainment winners, all of which are sampled in the video above.

Netflix subscribers can stream season one (six episodes) of BBC One’s Happy Valley, cited for being a  “fresh take on the British crime drama.”

Hulu subscribers can stream two of the honorees: National Treasure, a four-part drama about the ramifications of sexual misconduct allegations brought against a fictional celebrity; and Horace and Pete, a dramedy series starring Steve Buscemi and the show’s creator/writer/director Louis C.K.

Louis C.K. also co-created Better Things, a comedy about working motherhood, and one of two FX series that earned Peabodys for their premiere seasons. The other: Atlanta, about two young black men trying to succeed in that city’s rap scene. To catch up on either series, you’ll need to buy the complete seasons or individual episodes. They’re available from numerous streaming sites, including FandangoNow, where you can get Better Things for $20.99, Atlanta for $19.99, and the 10 episodes of each series for $1.99 each.

HBO joined Hulu and FX in winning two Peabodys – for the long-running comedy Veep, called a “rare show blessed with a perfectly cast ensemble”; and for Lemonade, Beyonce’s hour-long visual album cited as “a stunning and sublime masterpiece about the lives of women of color and the bonds of friendship.”

You can stream Veep via HBO Now, but not Lemonade. The special, which premiered on HBO a year ago yesterday, is now only available on Tidal, a subscription music and music video service. Here’s Lemonade’s original trailer:
