NEW SERIES PREMIERE DATES:

"#killerpost"

Premieres Saturday, January 30 at 9pm ET/PT

Produced by Jupiter Entertainment with Stephen Land, Deborah Allen and Allison Wallach serving as Executive Producers, along with Edmund Coulthard from Blast! Films.

"#killerpost" profiles true stories of the most jaw-dropping and shocking cases where social media activity has had dangerous and deadly consequences. Although the crimes differ in nature, they all share a common theme - social media posts were the catalysts for deadly repercussions. Through cinematic reenactments of both the crimes and stories behind them - coupled with witness testimonies and expert interviews - each pulse-pounding episode will feature extreme cases in which a post, a poke or even a tweet led to a violent and even deadly result. From a seemingly innocent online connection that ends in homicide to an online feud between best friends that leads to a public physical altercation, viewers will witness how the boundaries between the real and online world are breaking down with shocking results and sometimes fatal outcomes.

"Preachers of Atlanta"

Premieres Wednesday, February 3 at 10pm ET/PT

Produced by L. Plummer Media in association with Relevé Entertainment with Lemuel Plummer, Holly Carter, Chris Costine and Mark Scheibal serving as Executive Producers.

The popular franchise heads to the ATL with "Preachers of Atlanta." Through the lens of five pastors with drastically different approaches to their ministry, the show explores many of the most hot-button and polarizing issues in America today. From passionate discussions surrounding the validity of unorthodox ministry methods to first-person accounts of the rippling and emotional effects of racial tensions with law enforcement, these unconventional preachers have no boundaries when it comes to tackling real issues that affect real people in their communities. The five preachers challenging the status quo are Pastor Corey Hambrick, Pastor Le'Andria Johnson, Pastor Canton Jones, Pastor Kimberly Jones-Pothier and Pastor Judah Swilley.

"Living with Funny"

Tuesday, March 29 at 9pm ET/PT

Produced by L. Plummer Media with Lemuel Plummer, Chris Costine and Brandon T. Jackson serving as Executive Producers.

The half-hour docu-series showcases the personal lives behind the curtain of rising comedians in Hollywood and the women in their lives -- Brandon T. Jackson and fiancée Denise Xavier, DeRay Davis and girlfriends' Coco & Caro, Michael Blackson and girlfriend Georgia Reign, Erik Rivera and wife Katie Rivera, along with bachelor Adam Hunter. Cameras will follow the howling tale of what happens when these funnymen drop the mic and come home to their family, friends and significant others. Because when you are a comedian, the jokes don't stop just because the show does.

"Like A Boss"

New Premiere Date: Tuesday, March 29 at 9:30pm ET/PT

Produced by Evolution Media with Douglas Ross, Alex Baskin, Greg Stewart and Jason Sands serving as Executive Producers in association with NCredible Entertainment with Nick Cannon and Michael Goldman serving as Executive Producers.

Featuring Amber Grimes, assistant to media mogul Nick Cannon; Devin Simpson assistant to successful real estate agent Blair Myers; Rian Parish, assistant to popular radio personality Big Tigger; and Drekia Glenn assistant to music executive Abou "Bu" Thiam, these protégés are out to prove they have the drive, focus and ambition to be a future CEO. Talent can only take this group so far, however, as they struggle to balance their personal and professional lives with the tempting Atlanta social scene surrounding them. From cleaning cars to house hunting and everything in between, these up-and-comers know they are one wrong coffee order away from a pink slip.

The investment club will use their business expertise, industry knowledge and creative vision to determine which up-and-coming products have the potential to be the next big thing.
