Discovery, Inc.’s non-fiction streaming service Discovery+ is set to premiere Jean-Simon Chartier’s feature-length documentary They Call Me Dr. Miami this February.

The 77-minute project from Cargo Film & Releasing offers a peek into the life of plastic surgeon Michael Salzhauer (pictured), exploring how the social media sensation balances his celebrity status and his conservative Orthodox Jewish faith.

They Call Me Dr. Miami, an official selection of the 2020 Hot Docs International Film Festival and 2019 Miami Film Festival, premieres Feb. 11 as part of a slate of new Discovery+ programming.

True crime titles slated to debut next month include the two-hour documentary If I Can’t Have You: The Jodi Arias Story (Feb. 12); Where Murder Lies (Feb. 16); The Chameleon Killer (Feb. 19); and The List of Ten (Feb. 23).

On Feb. 14, Discovery+ will premiere the 90 Day Fiancé spin-off Love Games. The elimination-style game show will see couples from the franchise compete to win the 90 Day championship and Love Games trophy.

In the home improvement vertical, the streamer will debut the Taylor Spellman-hosted One Week to Sell on Feb. 3. The series was first announced in October as part of a raft of HGTV greenlights.

Paranormal titles slated for next month include the eight-episode series Nostradamus: End of Days (Feb. 16); The Exorcism of Roland Doe (Feb. 5); competition format Fright Club (Feb. 9), featuring Jack Osbourne and the Ghost Brothers; and the 8 x 60-minute series Aliens in Alaska (Feb. 15).

Finally, joining They Call Me Dr. Miami on Discovery+’s doc lineup is Ski Bum: The Warren Miller Story, which chronicles the life and times of the legendary filmmaker.

Discovery+ rolled out in the U.S. on Jan. 4. More than 1,000 hours of original programming is expected to premiere on the service in 2021.
