Screen Babble: Weekend Watch: highlights from White Men Can't Jump to Chelsea Flower Show

This weekend's film and TV highlights include a White Men Can't Jump remake, Selling Sunset season 6, and a Northern Ireland documentary

NationalWorld's Digital Trends Writer and Screen Babble co-host brings you viewing recommendations for the weekend and beyond. First up is a Disney remake of 1992 sports comedy film White Men Can't Jump. Jack Harlow and Sinqua Walls replace Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes in this comedy about two basketball hustlers. The film landed on Disney+ on Friday 19 May, and the original film is also on the platform.

Selling Sunset season six has now arrived - with many of the main cast returning and Nicole Young and Bre Tiesi joining the high-end property/reality show.

New Netflix series Muted is certainly worth your time this weekend - the Spanish-language drama follows a man who hasn't spoken since he killed his parents six years before. A teenage girl may be the key to uncovering the full story and getting the killer to speak. The eight part series landed on Netflix on Friday.

A major annual BBC production returns as the Chelsea Flower Show is back this week. Presented by the Royal Horticultural Society in the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea in Chelsea, the garden programme usually sees members of the Royal Family in attendance.
