Hosted by Tony Fama, The 1960s Rediscovered guides viewers on a journey through the legendary moments that defined the 1960s - from the tumultuous to the groundbreaking, and everything in-between. Across 10 hour-long episodes, the series shines a light on every aspect of the unforgettable era, with in-depth analysis of the political climate, historic achievements, monumental movements, and influential pop culture landscape that left a lasting impact on the American psyche. Through candid interviews with the journalists who covered it, the history-makers who shaped it, and the entertainers who inspired it, Fama brings the 1960s to vivid life, providing a fresh perspective that history enthusiasts of all ages will not want to miss. Why do the 1960s continue to peak the interest of Americans across the generations? What is it about the 60s that resonates to this day?" asked Fama. "Through the personal experiences of the men and women who came of age during the decade, we found one answer might be that in the events of that ten-year span more than 50 years ago, the America of today is still being shaped and influenced."

Buddy and two rotating expert judges, including Nacho Aguirre, Ralph Attanasia, Zoe Francois, Tregaye Frasier, Dan Langan, Lorraine Pascale, Aarti Sequeira, Thiago Silva,and Kristen Tomlan will determine the baker's item on the bottom of the batch and will send them home without finishing their remaining items. It's a battle against the clock! "The competitors must bake the best cookies, cupcakes, and cakes that not only taste delicious, but also impress Buddy Valastro with the technique and presentation," said Courtney White, President, Food Network. "On top of preparing the desserts, the bakers must strategize to use their time wisely, making Big Time Bake one of the most difficult competitions."

After two hours of the competition, Buddy and the guest judges visit each baker's station to taste the cookies, but time will still be running out so the bakers must continue working during the judging. One baker's cookies will leave them crumbled in the competition and will be eliminated without finishing their other items.

(from HGTV's press release, May 2020) Sixteen homeowners who are ready to try their hand at do-it-yourself design will receive the virtual help they need from HGTV stars - and a box of specially curated décor elements - in the first, fully self-shot series from HGTV, Design At Your Door. Premiering with back-to-back episodes on Thursday, June 11, at 9 and 9:30 p.m. ET/PT, the series will follow families from all walks of life, including first responders and other essential front line workers, as they receive coaching and a customized design plan that they can quickly make a reality. Boxes of surprises, delivered to the homeowner's doorstep, could include anything from paint and pillows to wallpaper, headboards and sofas. Participating HGTV experts in the series include: David Bromstad (My Lottery Dream Home), Tiffany Brooks (HGTV Smart Home 2020), Tamara Day (Bargain Mansions), Dave and Jenny Marrs (Fixer to Fabulous), Maureen McCormick (A Very Brady Renovation), Grace Mitchell (One of a Kind), Eve Plumb (A Very Brady Renovation), Orlando Soria (Build Me Up) and Alison Victoria (Windy City Rehab). While documenting their design process every step of the way, the homeowners will complete such projects as converting a forgotten storage area into a playroom and upgrading a bonus space into a home office and media room. "In Design At Your Door," our home renovation stars are faced with a unique challenge - designing a space they'll never see in person and virtually coaching novices to express a personalized design vision," said Jane Latman, president, HGTV. "Once the homeowners open their design boxes, it's game on as they unleash their creativity and get that makeover done without outside hands-on assistance." Throughout the season, eager homeowners will follow the expert's advice to make over their spaces one step at a time - from overhauling a boring kid's bedroom to transforming an unused screened porch into a functional homework space. The families include a firefighter, an ER nurse, a cafeteria worker and several parents who are simultaneously remote working and homeschooling their children. Now the families must navigate the added challenges of spouses working together on home projects, kids acting as camera operators and pets vying for attention. "These families are brave enough to take on projects that traditionally would be accomplished by a full design team with a camera crew on-site, but their creativity and heart are exactly what makes Design At Your Door such a fun show to watch," said Latman.

(from Channel 4's press release, November 2019) Chefs Heston Blumenthal, Carla Hall and Niklas Ekstedt are to take on the roles of 'Food Gods' in Channel 4 and Netflix's magical food competition, Crazy Delicious. The new six-episode series, presented by comedian and foodie Jayde Adams, is an innovative and imaginative food competition set on the world's first edible set. In a culture where many British families eat the same meals every week, this show aims to inspire viewers to turn everyday dishes into Crazy Delicious creations. Each week, three passionate and inventive cooks work magic with commonplace ingredients, such as the humble carrot, some of which they will pick, pluck and snip from an enchanted garden on the stunning Crazy Delicious set which also contains edible blossom, chocolate soil, and a drinkable babbling brook. Inspired by the vibrant and viral world of #foodporn, the competition challenges the cooks to create dishes that are both a taste sensation and a feast for the eyes. Crazy Delicious is presided over by our world-renowned Gods of Food, Heston Blumenthal, Carla Hall and Niklas Ekstedt. The trio sit amongst the clouds and judge which ingenious cook will reign victorious and be awarded the golden apple. Together, the gods judge the concept, visual appeal and taste of each dish, with their complement of expertise combining to choose their favourite creation. While British chef Heston Blumenthal is known for putting science into cookery to create surprising and elaborate dishes, famed American chef Carla Hall is passionate about soul food and cooking with love, with renowned Swedish chef and restaurateur Niklas Ekstedt valuing the simplicity of ingredients and traditional techniques. As the competitive cooks create new takes on recognisable meals such as chicken pie and pizza, presenter Jayde Adams oversees the garden, speaking to the competitors about their recipes as they go about making their extraordinary culinary innovations.

Premiering with back-to-back episodes on Wednesday, June 24, at 8 and 8:30 p.m. ET/PT, the series will spotlight organization expert and coach Cassandra Aarssen doing what she does best - helping families tackle the chaos and challenges of home organization. In each episode, Cassandra will take a video tour of the client's home where she finds overflowing playrooms, stuffed kitchens and inundated basements. After the home tours, she will help them identify an organization style that works best for their unique situation and give them the necessary resources and tools for a stress-free, decluttered life. "What I tell my clients is, 'you're not disorganized - you're just not organizing for your unique style,'" said Cassandra. "But together, no matter the space, or what's filling it - I will help you take back control of your home and your life. It's so important that we let go of the past, so that we have room for the future." Throughout the season, Cassandra will mentor families with all types of disorganized dilemmas, including a young couple living in a cramped 350-square-foot apartment and a family with closets bursting at the seams. In one emotional, touching episode, Cassandra's organization tips help one woman find the engagement ring that she thought was lost. While Cassandra helps each client tackle the physical process of organization, she also will advise how they can manage the underlying emotional attachments that often lead to over-cluttering in the first place.

Each episode records the arrivals of unwanted pets complete with heart-rending tales of abandonment. At the same time, they tell stories of families, couples, and singletons, all carrying their own baggage of poignant and touching backstory and hoping their lives might be transformed by the introduction of a new four-legged friend. The climax of each story is the theatre of the meet. Multiple fixed cameras mounted inside a special pen observe every beat of the first meetings between the dogs and their prospective new owners. Will the nervous dog come out of its shell? Will there be a connection? Will lives be changed forever?

(from Showtime's press release, May 2020) SHOWTIME(R) has released the official poster and trailer for its new limited series THE GOOD LORD BIRD, premiering on Sunday, August 9 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Starring and executive produced by Oscar(R) nominee Ethan Hawke, who plays the controversial abolitionist John Brown, the seven-episode series is from Blumhouse Television and based on the National Book Award-winning novel The Good Lord Bird by bestselling author James McBride. THE GOOD LORD BIRD is told from the point of view of Onion (Joshua Caleb Johnson), a fictional enslaved boy who becomes a member of Brown's motley family of abolitionist soldiers during Bleeding Kansas - a time when the state was a battleground between pro- and anti-slavery forces - and eventually finds himself participating in the famous 1859 raid on the U.S. Armory at Harpers Ferry. Brown's raid failed to initiate the slave revolt he intended, but was the event that started the Civil War. THE GOOD LORD BIRD weaves a humorous, dramatic and historical tapestry of Antebellum America, spotlighting the complicated and ever-changing racial, religious and gender roles that make up the American identity.
