In Nazi-occupied France, Lucille Angellier (Michelle Williams) waits for news of her husband, along with her domineering mother-in-law (Kristin Scott Thomas).

Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Michel'le

Premieres Saturday, October 15 at 8pm ET/PT

Discovered at a young age, the shy, squeaky-voiced Michel'le (Rhyon Nicole Brown) was plucked straight from South Central, Los Angeles and catapulted into the spotlight while riding N.W.A.'s rocket ride of early success. Surrounded by industry visionaries from Eazy-E to Tupac Shakur, Michel'le quickly climbed the charts; but, her musical successes were soon overshadowed by betrayal and corruption. A nearly decade-long romance with the infamous Dr. Dre (Curtis Hamilton) pushed her into a life tarnished by alcohol, drugs and violence until her savior came in the unlikely form of Suge Knight (R. Marcos Taylor), co-founder of Death Row Records and Dre's business partner. Friendship would turn into a courtly romance, but the union Michel'le thought they had did not end happily-ever-after. With children from both men and a career to protect, Michel'le's voice became silenced by Compton's biggest power players. Until now.

A Brave Heart: The Lizzie Velasquez Story

Premieres Saturday, October 17 at 8pm ET/PT

From the producers of the most viewed TEDWomen event of 2013 comes A Brave Heart: The Lizzie Velasquez Story, a documentary following the inspiring journey of 27-year-old, 62 pound Lizzie from cyber-bullying victim to anti-bullying activist. Born with a rare syndrome that prevents her from gaining weight, Elizabeth "Lizzie" Velasquez was first bullied as a child in school for looking different and, later online, as a teenager when she discovered a YouTube video labeling her "The World's Ugliest Woman." The film chronicles unheard stories and details of Lizzie's physical and emotional journey up to her multi-million viewed TEDx talk, and follows her pursuit from a motivational speaker to Capitol Hill as she lobbies for the first federal anti-bullying bill. Directed by first-time filmmaker Sara Hirsh Bordo, A Brave Heart: The Lizzie Velasquez Story will debut October in conjunction with National Bullying Prevention Month.

On the eve of achieving her dream, a starring role on the Vegas stage, Debbie vanishes without a trace. The investigation into her disappearance reveals the twisted depth of this love story gone wrong that ends in a sordid death that shocked Las Vegas and the world with its gruesome and tragic details. Death of a Vegas Showgirl is produced by Dancing in Vegas Productions, Inc. Executive producers are Scott W. Anderson (The Capture of the Green River Killer), Howard Braunstein (The Informant!), Roselyn Sanchez, Eric Winter and Brian D. Young (Marriage of Lies) and Produced by Christian Bruyere.
