DEADWATER FELL (ACORN TV)
· [series premiere] · 4/6/20 at 3:01 AM
· [regularly airs] · mondays from 3:01 AM-4:00 AM EST
(from Acorn TV's press release, February 2020) In the latest of intense, acclaimed mystery dramas from Acorn TV, BAFTA and NTA award-winning actor David Tennant (Broadchurch, Doctor Who, Good Omens) and award-winning actress Cush Jumbo (The Good Fight, The Good Wife, Vera) lead a stellar ensemble cast in the darkly gripping British series Deadwater Fell, to premiere exclusively in North America on Acorn TV on Monday, April 6, with a weekly rollout every Monday through April 27. Created and written by Daisy Coulam (Grantchester, Humans) and directed by Lynsey Miller (The Boy with the Topknot, Eve,) this four-part psychological mystery drama explores the cause and aftermath of a horrific crime in a small Scottish community. When a seemingly perfect and happy family is murdered by someone they know and trust, those closest to the family begin to question everything they thought they knew about their friends. After its premiere on UK's Channel 4 on January 10, 2020, Deadwater Fell became the #1 drama for the network's key demos and was Channel 4's second highest rating drama (total audience) in the past year. Called a "glorious streaming service... an essential must-have" (The Hollywood Reporter), AMC Networks' Acorn TV is North America's most popular streamer focused on British and international television. As much as it reveals the origins and outcome of the violent, unthinkable tragedy in the fictional Scottish village of Kirkdarroch, Deadwater Fell is equally a captivating forensic dissection of two relationships: trusted general physician Tom Kendrick (Tennant) and his beloved local primary school teacher wife Kate (Anna Madeley, Patrick Melrose, The Crown, Utopia), and school teacher Jess Milner (Jumbo) and police sergeant Steve Campbell (Matthew McNulty, Versailles, Cleaning Up, The Terror). Dr. Kendrick (Tennant) is a trusted, admired and much-liked member of the community and is a doting father to three little girls, a seemingly loving husband whose marriage to Kate (Madeley) appears nothing short of perfect. But in one night the illusions of happiness and contentment are shattered as the community is drawn to Kate and Tom's home in the forest by the flicker of flames and the smell of smoke. Amid the confusion, Kate and her children are found dead, and Tom, found unconscious in his bed, is rushed to the hospital. As more suspicious details of that night emerge, Jess - who was Kate's best friend and closest confidante - becomes desperate to understand what could have caused such a tragedy, and what secrets lie at the root of this terrible act. Filmed entirely on location in picturesque Scotland, Deadwater Fell examines in unflinching detail the nature of female friendship and the harmful, entrenched gender stereotypes and conformity that can lead to the most devastating consequences. Laying bare the fragility of trust and the corrosive nature of lies, the series demonstrates that even the closest of friends all have their secrets.

He captained the F/V Cornelia Marie for more than 20 years, and after his tragic passing, his son Josh Harris took over the family business, along with business partner Casey McManus. Now, an unbelievable discovery of mysterious Hawaiian fishing charts scribbled with Captain Phil's handwriting, notes and statistics, has prompted Deadliest Catch captain and Alaskan legacy fisherman Josh Harris to take a once-in-a-lifetime quest to Hawaii, to learn about the time his late father spent fishing there decades ago. From Original Productions, the brand-new series DEADLIEST CATCH: BLOODLINE premieres Tuesday, April 14 at 10PM ET/PT on Discovery Channel. Following the premiere, episodes will air at 9PM ET/PT. Phil's fishing charts, found while Josh and Casey were renovating the F/V Cornelia Marie's captain's quarters, date as far back as the early '80s and show all the islands of Hawaii, including one of the most premiere fishing spots in the world - the Kona coast. They are covered in Phil Harris' handwriting, with detailed notes about fishing adventures and island life. There are fishing secrets on the charts, but to Josh they have so much more. To gain a deeper understanding of fishing in Hawaii, the duo enlists the help of Jeff Silva, one of the island's top commercial fisherman to help them learn the challenging fishery and interpret Phil's charts. This is fishing like Josh and Casey have never fished before and the pair will battle the elements - and each other - as they struggle to catch the island's most lucrative bounty - ahi tuna - and dive deeper into the mysteries of Phil's time in Hawaii.

LAST DANCE, THE (ESPN)
· [series premiere] · 4/19/20 at 9:00 PM
· [regularly airs] · sundays from 9:00 PM-11:00 PM EST
(from ESPN's press release, March 2020) Today it was announced that the premiere of "The Last Dance," the highly anticipated 10-part documentary series will air on ESPN in the U.S. on Sunday nights over five weeks from April 19 through May 17. The series will also be available outside of the U.S. on Netflix. The series, directed by Jason Hehir ("The Fab Five," "The '85 Bears," "Andre the Giant"), chronicles one of the greatest icons and most successful teams in sports history, Michael Jordan and the 1990s Chicago Bulls, and features never-before-seen footage from the 1997-98 season as the team pursued its sixth NBA championship in eight years. ESPN statement: "As society navigates this time without live sports, viewers are still looking to the sports world to escape and enjoy a collective experience. We've heard the calls from fans asking us to move up the release date for this series, and we're happy to announce that we've been able to accelerate the production schedule to do just that. This project celebrates one of the greatest players and dynasties ever, and we hope it can serve as a unifying entertainment experience to fill the role that sports often play in our lives, telling a story that will captivate everyone, not just sports fans." In the fall of 1997, Michael Jordan, Bulls owner Jerry Reinsdorf and head coach Phil Jackson agreed to let an NBA Entertainment film crew follow the team all season long. The result would be a remarkable portrait of an iconic player and a celebrated team - a portrait only now being revealed, more than two decades later, in "The Last Dance." As the series weaves its way through the tumultuous 1997-98 season, viewers will be transported back to how it all began - from Jordan's childhood roots, the Bulls' dire circumstances before his arrival and how the team was built after drafting him in 1984, to the struggles that eventually led to the team's first NBA championship. As the series takes the audience through the Bulls' first five championships, viewers will experience the off-court challenges, struggles and triumphs that were a part of the culture-shifting phenomenon created by Jordan and the Bulls. It's an unlikely scenario that serves as a fascinating backdrop for the inside tale of the 1998 championship run, with extensive profiles of Jordan's key teammates including Scottie Pippen, Dennis Rodman and Steve Kerr, head coach Phil Jackson, and featuring dozens of current-day interviews with rivals and luminaries from basketball and beyond. All throughout, the tension and conflict that defined that final championship run are very much on display.

"The response to our special with Alexis, BeBe, Jujubee and Thorgy last year was an enthusiastic 'heck yeah,' and we are so proud to bring them all back for a full season run in DRAGNIFICENT!," said Howard Lee, President and GM, TLC. "TLC viewers love our tears-of-joy stories of transformation, self-discovery and self-love. We can't think of a better treat for viewers than following four of America's favorite drag queens as they help someone feel as fabulous and confident as they deserve to be." At the heart of DRAGNIFICENT! are makeovers that tug on the heartstrings, with a team of experts who tackle their challenges by drawing on their individual expertise and overall fabulousness: Alexis Michelle is a makeup artist, specializing in weddings and special events; BeBe is an experienced event planner who can transform any room into a fantasy space; Jujubee, a fashion expert known for her dynamic and iconic looks, draws on her deep knowledge in drag couture and women's fashion; and Thorgy Thor is a classically trained musician who knows how to get the party started. In each episode, the cast will help someone reimagine their appearance for a special day and reveal themselves as they have only dreamed, while taking viewers on a touching journey of their life and struggles to this point. Whether it be a bride who wants to feel beautiful walking down the aisle, an alumna who wants to strut her stuff at an upcoming high school reunion, or a woman coming to terms with her new body after losing a massive amount of weight, there is nothing our queens can't tackle. No matter how big the event or transformation, our fairy godmothers are just the team needed to give these people the confidence, courage and grace they need to be their best at the biggest moments of their lives.

The announcement was made today by Gary Levine, President of Entertainment, Showtime Networks Inc., at the Television Critics Association's Winter Press Tour. A spiritual descendant of the original PENNY DREADFUL story set in Victorian-era London, PENNY DREADFUL: CITY OF ANGELS opens in 1938 Los Angeles, a time and place deeply infused with social and political tension. When a grisly murder shocks the city, Detective Tiago Vega (Zovatto) and his partner Lewis Michener (Lane) become embroiled in an epic story that reflects the rich history of Los Angeles: from the building of the city's first freeways and its deep traditions of Mexican-American folklore, to the dangerous espionage actions of the Third Reich and the rise of radio evangelism. Before long, Tiago and his family are grappling with powerful forces that threaten to tear them apart. PENNY DREADFUL: CITY OF ANGELS explores an exciting mix of the supernatural and the combustible reality of the period. This new chapter is a bold new vision that will employ all new characters and storylines.

Meanwhile, Indigo (Russell) is a street-savvy hustler trapped in the body of a well-to-do art school drop-out. On the edge of the group is Camille (Vinberg), guarded, perceptive, intelligent and awkward. She wants to be down with the dudes in the skate park and has fought hard for the small space she's carved out with them, but she needs to realize that cool points don't actually add up to the sum of anything, especially in the eyes of the other girls.
