LAURA DISCOVERS THE TRUTH ON AMC'S "HUMANS" AT 10:00 P.M. ET/PT

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - "Fear the Walking Dead" Season 4 mid-season finale airs on Sunday, June 10th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. On the all-new episode, "No One's Gone," Madison fights to preserve the life she worked so hard to build, while Morgan tries to do the right thing.

In its fourth season, "Fear the Walking Dead" viewers will see the world of Madison Clark and her family through new eyes - the eyes of Morgan Jones, who joined the story from the world of "The Walking Dead." The characters' immediate pasts mix with an uncertain present of struggle and discovery as they meet new friends, foes and threats. They fight for each other, against each other and against a legion of the dead to somehow build an existence against the crushing pressure of lives coming apart. There will be darkness and light; terror and grace; and the heroic, mercenary and craven, all crashing together toward a new reality.

Produced by AMC Studios, "Fear the Walking Dead" is executive produced by Scott M. Gimple, showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg, as well as Robert Kirkman, David Alpert, Gale Anne Hurd and Greg Nicotero. This season stars Kim Dickens, Frank Dillane, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Colman Domingo and Danay Garcia, along with new series regulars Garret Dillahunt, Jenna Elfman, Maggie Grace and Lennie James.

Season three of AMC's "Into the Badlands" continues on Sunday, June 10th at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. On the seventh episode, "Dragonfly's Last," Sunny works with the River King to secure passage to Pilgrim's Fortress, while The Widow faces mutiny from discontented troops.

Season three of "Into the Badlands" finds Sunny (Daniel Wu) living off the grid, doing his best to provide for his infant son, Henry, in the wake of Veil's death. It is only when Henry contracts a mysterious illness that Sunny must join forces with Bajie (Nick Frost) and journey back into the Badlands, where The Widow (Beecham) and Baron Chau (Matsuura) are entrenched in a drawn-out war that has destabilized the entire region. No longer supported by Tilda (Ally Ioannides) or Waldo (Stephen Lang), The Widow must find new allies in Lydia (Orla Brady) and in Nathaniel Moon (Sherman Augustus) - the former regent who lost his hand to Sunny and Bajie in Season 2. But when a mysterious nomadic leader called Pilgrim (Babou Ceesay) arrives in the Badlands on a mission to restore Azra and usher in a new era of "peace," old enemies must band together to defend the Badlands.

"Into the Badlands" was created by showrunners/executive producers/writers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar and executive produced by Oscar(R)-nominated producers Stacey Sher and Michael Shamberg, director David Dobkin, fight director Stephen Fung and star Daniel Wu. The series stars Daniel Wu (Tomb Raider) as Sunny; Aramis Knight (Enders Game) as M.K.; Emily Beecham (Daphne) as The Widow; Orla Brady ("Fringe") as Lydia; Ally Ioannides ("Parenthood") as Tilda and Nick Frost as Bajie (Shaun of the Dead). This season, they will be joined by new series regulars Lorraine Toussaint ("Orange is the New Black"), Sherman Augustus ("Westworld"), Babou Ceesay ("Guerilla") and Ella-Rae Smith (Clique), as well as new recurring guest stars Dean-Charles Chapman ("Game of Thrones") and Lewis Tan ("Iron Fist").

Following the episode, viewers can catch an all-new episode of "Talking Dead" hosted by Chris Hardwick at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT, featuring "Fear the Walking Dead" stars Colman Domingo, Alycia Debnam-Carey and a surprise cast member.

AMC's new original series "Dietland," continues with a new episode on Monday, June 11th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. On the third episode, "Y Not," Plum goes through withdrawal as she works on her new writing assignment; Jennifer rampages, leaving the country a fearful, bloody mess.

Based on Sarai Walker's 2015 best-selling, critically acclaimed novel of the same name, "Dietland" is a wickedly funny and extraordinarily timed satire about Plum Kettle, a ghost-writer for the editor of one of New York's hottest fashion magazines. Struggling with self-image and fed up with how she's treated by her boss and society, Plum sets out on a wildly complicated road to self-awakening. At the same time, everyone is buzzing over news reports about men, accused of sexual abuse and assault, who are disappearing and meeting untimely, violent deaths. Equal parts revenge fantasy and a journey to self-acceptance, "Dietland" is a darkly comedic story that explores a multitude of issues faced by women today.

The series stars Joy Nash ("The Mindy Project," "Twin Peaks") as Plum Kettle, and Golden Globe(R) and Emmy(R) Award-winner Julianna Margulies ("The Good Wife," "ER") as Kitty Montgomery. Marti Noxon ("Mad Men," "UnREAL,") serves as executive producer, writer, showrunner and directs multiple episodes of the series.

The second episode of the "Dietland" companion talk show, "Unapologetic with Aisha Tyler" will air on Monday, June 11th at 10:00 pm ET with series star Julianna Margulies, women's rights attorney, author and activist Gloria Allred and actress/comedian Yette Nicole Brown as this week's guests.

Unlike a conventional after show confined to the companion series itself, "Unapologetic" will feature Tyler leading a topical discussion around the broader, female-centric issues and themes that "Dietland" explores. Tyler will be talking with celebrity fans, series actors and producers, as well as relevant journalists, writers, comedians and other tastemakers. Embassy Row's Michael Davies, Tammy Johnston and Amanda McPhillips serve as executive producers.

Season 3 of AMC's critically-acclaimed scripted drama, "HUMANS" continues on Tuesday, June 12th at 10:00 P.M. ET/PT. On the new episode, a grieving Max must face the consequences of his painful decision. Laura discovers she's not being told everything at the Dryden Commission, while Joe uncovers Karen's shocking secret.

The series, penned by writing partners Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley (Spooks, Spooks: The Greater Good), is set in a parallel present and explores what happens when the lines between humans and machines are blurred. "HUMANS" provides a thrilling look at the evolution of technology and its effect on society. Timely and relevant, the eight-episode new season unfolds on a bigger scale than ever before.

Mark Bonnar ("Catastrophe," "Apple Tree Yard") joins series regulars Gemma Chan (Upcoming: "Captain Marvel," "Crazy Rich Asians"), Katherine Parkinson ("The Honorable Woman," "The IT Crowd"), Tom Goodman-Hill ("Mr. Selfridge," "The Imitation Game"), Emily Berrington ("24: Live Another Day," "The Inbetweeners 2"), Ivanno Jeremiah ("Black Mirror," "Doctor Who"), Colin Morgan ("Merlin," "The Fall") and Ruth Bradley ("Grabbers," "Pursuit").

Based on the award-winning Swedish sci-fi drama "Real Humans" created by Lars Lundstrom, "HUMANS" is executive produced by Vincent, Brackley, Derek Wax, Emma Kingsman-Lloyd for Kudos in association with Wild Mercury Productions and Lundstrom and Henrik Widman for Matador Films. Joining Vincent and Brackley in the writers' room is Debbie O'Malley, Namsi Khan, Jonathan Harbottle, Melissa Iqbal and Daisy Coulam. The series is produced by Vicki Delow for Kudos, SVT and Matador Films. The third season was commissioned for Channel 4 by Beth Willis and Simon Maxwell and Kristin Jones for AMC.
