Villanelle is a mercurial, talented killer who clings to the luxuries her violent job affords her.

From creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge - with remarkable performances from Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer - Killing Eve stands out in a sea of scripted stories as refreshingly entertaining and great fun."

(from Paramount Network's press release, March 2018) When Wayne Wolfe discovered that infamous serial killer Ed Edwards was his estranged grandfather he became compelled to answer one potentially life-altering question - are killers born, or are they made? In Paramount Network's "It Was Him: The Many Murders of Ed Edwards," premiering Monday, April 16 at 10:00pm ET/PT, Wolfe joins former Sergeant Detective and FBI Cold Case Task Force Officer John Cameron on his quest to prove that Ed Edwards is the man responsible for some of most astonishingly high-profile murders of the 20th Century. From the Black Dahlia to JonBenet Ramsey, Laci Peterson, the Zodiac killings, and "Making a Murderer" victim Teresa Halbach, Cameron has the evidence to suggest there is no case too nefarious to be Edwards' doing. A calculated and convicted killer, Edwards was arrested in 2009 and found guilty of five grisly murders over 20 years. He died of natural causes in prison in 2011, four months before his scheduled execution. Shortly after Edwards' death, Wolfe learned of his grandfather's identity and his potentially gruesome lifestyle. In an attempt to shed light on his grandfather's dark past and find closure for his father, Wolfe joined forces with Cameron, who has dedicated his life - and sacrificed his career - for his work to uncover the potential true scope of Ed Edwards' murderous life. He has spent years traveling the country speaking with experts, witnesses, family members and friends, all to piece together a colossal amount of evidence that could tie Edwards to some of the most publicized and violent murders of the last century.

(from PBS's press release, January 2018) Today at the Television Critics Association Press Tour, PBS announced that acclaimed film, theater and television actor Liev Schreiber (Ray Donovan, Spotlight, The Manchurian Candidate) will narrate its series, which tells the story of art from the dawn of human history to the present day - for the first time on a global scale. CIVILIZATIONS will premiere on PBS on Tuesday, April 17, 2018, 8:00 pm, with the next four episodes airing Tuesdays through May 15. Four more episodes will air in June. Inspired by Civilisation, Kenneth Clark's acclaimed landmark 1969 series about Western art, this bold new series from Nutopia broadens the canvas to reveal the role art and the creative imagination have played across multiple cultures and civilizations, introducing a new generation to works of beauty, ingenuity and illumination created across continents. From the landscape scrolls of classical China and the sculpture of the Olmecs to African bronzes, Japanese prints and French Impressionist paintings, CIVILIZATIONS explores the wealth of treasures created through the entirety of the human experience. The principal contributors to the films are Simon Schama, art historian and Professor of History and Art History at Columbia University New York; Mary Beard, Professor of Classics at the University of Cambridge; and British-Nigerian historian and writer David Olusoga. Joining them will be international artists and experts including Jamal J. Elias, Religious Studies Professor at the University of Pennsylvania; Rebecca Gonzalez-Lauck, National Institute for Anthropology, Mexico; art critic and historian Jonathan Jones; Salima Ikram, Professor of Egyptology at the American University in Cairo; Jay Xu, Director of the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco; and Maya Jasanoff, Professor of History at Harvard University. In nine episodes, CIVILIZATIONS travels across the globe, visiting such cultural landmarks as the great mosques of Istanbul, the ancient cities of Mesoamerica, the Buddhist caves of Ajanta in India, the Aztecs' Templo Mayor in modern Mexico City and the funeral site of China's first emperor. CIVILIZATIONS explores a sweeping range of topics, including the earliest human cultural artifacts and the representation of the body in art, what happens when different civilizations encounter each other, and the nature of "renaissances" around the world. Underlying the series is an exploration of the premise that it is through the creative imagination that humanity expresses its most essential self and looks for the fundamental meaning of life. Artists such as Kehinde Wiley, Michal Rovner and Anselm Kiefer, Kara Walker, Richard Misrach, Antony Gormley, Bill Viola, Kira Perov, Cai Guo-Qiang and Damien Hirst add additional commentary and context to this creative exploration.

The three-part drama will be scripted by Heidi Thomas, well-known to PBS audiences for her acclaimed adaptations of Call the Midwife and Cranford. Vanessa Caswill (Thirteen, My Mad Fat Diary) will direct all three hours. Playground's Golden Globe(R)-winning adaptation of Wolf Hall aired on MASTERPIECE in 2015.

Set against the backdrop of the Civil War, the story follows sisters Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy March on their journey from childhood to adulthood. With the help of their mother, Marmee, and while their father is away at war, the girls navigate what it means to be a young woman: from sibling rivalry and first love, to loss and marriage. Set in Concord, Massachusetts, Alcott's semi-autobiographical story became an instant bestseller when it was published and remains one of the most widely read novels of all time. A recent Harris poll listing it as one of America's ten favorite books confirms its enduring place in the cultural landscape.

(from Showtime's press release, January 2018) Showtime Documentary Films has announced the revealing multi-part documentary series THE FOURTH ESTATE (wt), exploring the process and progress of The New York Times and its journalists in covering the Trump administration. Produced and directed by Emmy(R) Award winning and Oscar(R) nominated filmmaker Liz Garbus (What Happened, Miss Simone?), the project illuminates critical issues facing journalism today - including the challenge to the bedrock concept of truth, the changing role of the media, and the Times' response to President Trump's war of words - through extraordinary access, on-the-scene filmmaking and exclusive sit-down interviews. THE FOURTH ESTATE (wt) is produced by RadicalMedia for SHOWTIME with Jenny Carchman (Long Strange Trip) and Justin Wilkes (What Happened, Miss Simone?) serving as producers. The announcement was made today by David Nevins, President and CEO, Showtime Networks Inc. at the 2018 Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour. From the first time President Trump called The New York Times "highly inaccurate" in its coverage of his administration, through his false claim that the paper is "failing" and losing thousands of subscribers, to ultimately declaring the majority of the nation's major news outlets "fake news," a chief task for the Times, long considered the "newspaper of record," has been to find the best way to accurately and honestly cover this new and unconventional president. With unprecedented access to the inner workings of the Times, including filming inside closed-door meetings, rare interviews with the editors and reporters who cover the President and the tumult around him, as well as an insider's view of the Sulzberger family publisher transition, Garbus intimately chronicles the tenacious men and women in the trenches who are fighting for the freedom of the press and America's right to know.

(from Paramount's press release, January 2018) Yellowstone," Paramount Network's new epic scripted dramatic series, will premiere on the network, Wednesday, June 20 at 9:00 pm, ET/PT. Starring world-renowned actor and Oscar(R)-winner Kevin Costner, who serves in the lead role, "Yellowstone" is written and directed by critically-acclaimed, Oscar(R)-nominated screenwriter Taylor Sheridan (Wind River, Hell or High Water and Sicario). Sheridan recently won Best Director Un Certain Regard at the Cannes Film Festival for the universally-lauded film, Wind River. The impressive cast list for "Yellowstone" includes Wes Bentley, Kelly Reilly, Luke Grimes, Cole Hauser, Kelsey Asbille, Dave Annable, Danny Huston, Gil Birmingham, Josh Lucas, Jefferson White, Gretchen Mol, Jill Hennessey, Patrick St. Esprit, Ian Bohen, Heather Hemmons, and Denim Richards. In "Yellowstone," Costner stars as John Dutton, who controls the largest contiguous ranch in the United States, under constant attack by those it borders - land developers, an Indian reservation, and America's first National Park. It is an intense study of a violent world far from media scrutiny - where land grabs make developers billions, and politicians are bought and sold by the world's largest oil and lumber corporations. Where drinking water poisoned by fracking wells and unsolved murders are not news: they are a consequence of living in the new frontier. It is the best and worst of America seen through the eyes of a family that represents both.

The series brings together eight of the country's most talented Makers to tackle a variety of handmade projects with the hopes of impressing Poehler and Offerman as well as judges Simon Doonan, Creative Ambassador for Barneys New York, and Dayna Isom Johnson, Etsy trend expert. "At the very most, you will fall in love with our Makers, get introduced to a world you may not know anything about and even get inspired to make something at home! At the very least, you will learn what vellum is," Poehler said. "As a woodworker myself, I'm awfully proud to showcase all these talented Makers and be reunited with my charismatic pal Amy to boot," Offerman said. "The question is: Is America thready for this? (Strap in, our show will be pun heavy)." Every show will revolve around a central theme that draws inspiration from hugely popular nationwide trends in crafting and DIY, which the whole family can enjoy. Each episode of the competition will consist of two projects, cleverly designed by Poehler and Offerman, that test the Makers' ability to think outside of the box in unpredictable ways. Believing there is no better way to express yourself than by making things by hand, the challenges are also designed to bring out skilled insights and takeaway, touching personal stories and lots of laughs. First, the "faster-craft" round will be a timed challenge that will test their ability to not only work quickly but imaginatively as well. Next, the Makers will move to the "master craft collection," a one-of-a-kind themed challenge in which the competitors will need to use their expertise and get inventive in order to assemble a winning craft that fits the theme of that week. In the end, only one will emerge victorious and be named "Master Maker."
