OVATION TV SETS SAIL FOR "RIVIERA" SEASON TWO ON SATURDAY, MAY 8

Series Starring Julia Stiles, Will Arnett & Lena Olin to Lead Mystery Alley Programming Block

Los Angeles, CA - April 7, 2021 As previously announced, Ovation TV, America's only arts network, has acquired the U.S. broadcast rights for the second season of the Julia Stiles-led drama series Riviera. After a successful first season, the thrilling drama series, set in the art world, will begin airing season two on Saturday, May 8 at 7pm ET / 4pm PT during the network's Mystery Alley programming block. Launched in August 2020, Mystery Alley is Ovation TV's Saturday night linear destination that celebrates the craft of mystery storytelling; from the intricate plots, complex characters, to visual style and cliffhangers.

In the second season of Riviera, Georgina (Julia Stiles) tries to find a way to live with her actions from the season one finale, but secrets from her past wash up on the sandy shores of the Cote d'Azur that force her to explore her turbulent childhood against her will. Following an unprecedented and unavoidable visit to her childhood home, Georgina returns with a refreshed sense of self to re-establish her power and position in the family alongside her charismatic confidant, uncle Jeff (Will Arnett).

Georgina very quickly becomes acquainted with the Eltham family, an English dynasty that sail in to the Cote d'Azur providing its shores with a dose of new money and glamour. She goes on to form relationships with the whole family, some that appear genuine from the outset and others that unravel around her as secrets, old and new, become exposed. Joining returning cast members Lena Olin, Dimitri Leonidas, and Roxane Duran are new cast members Juliet Stevenson, Poppy Delevingne, Jack Fox and Alex Hanipekum.

Viewers tuning in to Riviera will also be presented with behind-the-scenes featurettes, highlighting the series' bold female characters, new cast members, and deeper insight on the dramatic storylines of the new season; including the Shakespearean drama that unfolds due to the conflict between the two families, and the timeless battle between new money vs. old money. The featurettes will be broadcast on-air, with extended versions on the Ovation NOW app.
