Amazon Prime Video is ringing in the new year with a handful of originals, including another Oscar contender.

That would be “One Night in Miami” (Jan. 15), the directorial debut of Emmy- and Oscar-winner Regina King. The drama, based on a stage play, is a fictional account of a meeting in 1964 between four Black icons: Cassius Clay, Malcolm X, Sam Cooke and Jim Brown. The movie opened at Sundance earlier this year, and has garnered critical raves .

Also on tap for Amazon.com Inc.’s /zigman2/quotes/210331248/composite AMZN +0.60% streaming service: “Herself” (Jan. 8), an empowering story about a mother fleeing an abusive relationship; “Flack” (Jan. 22), a drama series about celebrity publicists, starring Anna Paquin; and “The Great Escapists” (date TBD), an engineering reality show starring Richard Hammond (“The Grand Tour”) and Tory Belleci (“MythBusters”) as they try to survive being stranded on a deserted island, and figure out a way to escape.
