Here's what's new on Stan in August 2017

With so many movies and TV shows available on each of the streaming services in Australia, it can be tough to keep up with all the new releases that appear each month.

In an effort to keep you informed about the best shows and movies that are in the process of being added to Stan, we will be bringing you an updated list of what you can expect on the service on a monthly basis.

Without further ado, here at the best movies and TV shows set to arrive on Stan during the month of August in 2017.

TV shows highlights for August, 2017

Swedish Dicks (Season 1): Chances are you've seen Swedish actor Peter Stomare in a number of classic movies and TV shows (Fargo, American Gods). But now, this celebrated character is finally getting the spotlight with Swedish Dicks, a new comedy series about private detectives from Sweden in LA. Keep an eye out for a Keanu Reeves appearance, who also starred opposite Stormare in John Wick: Chapter 2. Release date: 10/08/2017
