The STARZ® free preview, this coming weekend May 4-6th, is the perfect time to watch the premiere of 2 highly-anticipated new shows, Sweetbitter and Vida.

Sweetbitter, based on the bestselling novel by Stephanie Danler, is the coming-of-age story of 22-year-old Tess. She’s a young woman fresh from the Midwest, who’s determined to make a life for herself in New York City. The series invites us into the most intimate moments of her new life, as she embarks on a career at a celebrated downtown restaurant.

Vida centers around 2 Mexican-American sisters, Lyn and Emma, who couldn’t be more different or distanced from each other. Although they’d rather be apart, the death of their mother forces them to return to their old neighborhood. While there, they come face-to-face with the past, learn the surprising truth about their mother’s identity, and must also make plans for the future.

Both shows premiere Sunday, May 6th, but make sure to enjoy all of the hottest movies and shows throughout the STARZ free preview weekend.
