On the all-new episode, “Close Your Eyes,” Alicia's forced to reckon with an agonizing past while seeking refuge from a storm. The episode is written by Shintaro Shimosawa and directed by Michael E. Satrazemis.

The first half of season four began with one figure huddled around a campfire, and ended with nine. Characters who started their journeys in isolation collided with each other in unexpected ways and found themselves in one of the last places they ever expected to be...together. In the back half of the season they will explore who they are now – as individuals and as part of the greater group – and how they will forge ahead. They will find themselves pitted against new adversaries – human, walker, and even nature itself. Theirs will be a journey wrought with danger, love, heartbreak, loss, and ultimately, hope. The series 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, and produced by AMC Studios. The series stars Lennie James, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Colman Domingo, Danay Garcia, Garret Dillahunt, Maggie Grace and Jenna Elfman.

Dominic Cooper as Jesse Custer

Preacher” season three continues Sunday, August 19th at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. On the ninth episode, “Schwanzkopf,” divided and trapped Tulip, Jesse and Cassidy battle old friends, new enemies and loved ones to escape certain death - or worse. This episode is written by Gary Tieche and directed by Kevin Hooks.

In Season three, Jesse Custer’s quest for God takes him back to the place he’s been avoiding his whole life: home.  Jesse, Tulip, and Cassidy return to Angelville, the Louisiana Plantation where Jesse was raised, and find old grudges and deadly obligations await them. With the help of his friends -- and a few enemies -- Jesse will need to escape his past… because the future of the world depends on it.

“Preacher” stars Dominic Cooper, Ruth Negga, Joseph Gilgun, Ian Colletti, Graham McTavish, Pip Torrens, Julie Ann Emery, Malcolm Barrett and new series regulars Betty Buckley (“Supergirl,” “Split”) and Colin Cunningham (“Blood Drive,” “Falling Skies”).  Jeremy Childs (“The Last Castle,” “Nashville”), Liz McGeever (“Star, Nashville”), Jonny Coyne (“Turn,” “Alcatraz”), Adam Croasdell (“Reign”) and Prema Cruz (“Mozart in the Jungle”) are recurring guest stars.

The Sony Pictures Television and AMC Studios co-production was developed for television by executive producer and showrunner Sam Catlin (“Breaking Bad”) and executive producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (“Sausage Party,” “This is the End,” “Superbad”). The series is also executive produced by James Weaver for Point Grey Pictures, Neal H. Moritz, Ori Marmur, Vivian Cannon, Jason Netter, Michael Slovis, Mark McNair, Garth Ennis, Ken F. Levin and Sara Goodman.

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” showrunner and executive producer Andrew Chambliss, “Fear The Walking Dead” star Mercedes Mason and actress Deborah Joy Winans.




Jonathan Banks as Mike Ehrmantraut and Bob Odenkirk as Jimmy McGill
Season four of “Better Call Saul” continues on Monday, August 20th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. On the third episode, “Something Beautiful,” Jimmy puts a risky plan into motion, and as alliances shift, Nacho finds himself in the crosshairs, while Kim contemplates her future. This episode is written by Gordon Smith and directed by Daniel Sackheim.

In “Better Call Saul’s” fourth season, Chuck’s death catalyzes Jimmy McGill’s (Bob Odenkirk) transformation into Saul Goodman. In the wake of his loss, Jimmy takes steps into the criminal world that will put his future as a lawyer – and his relationship with Kim (Rhea Seehorn) – in jeopardy.  Chuck’s (Michael McKean) death deeply affects former colleagues Howard (Patrick Fabian) and Kim as well, putting the two of them once again on opposite sides of a battle sparked by the Brothers McGill.

Meanwhile, Mike Ehrmantraut takes a more active role as Madrigal Electromotive’s newest (and most thorough) security consultant.  It’s a volatile time to be in Gus Fring’s employ, as Hector’s collapse sends shock waves throughout the Albuquerque underworld and throws the cartel into chaos — tearing apart both Gus and Nacho’s well-laid plans.  While Gus changes course, Nacho finds himself in the crosshairs of deadly forces.

The critically acclaimed drama is executive produced by Peter Gould, Vince Gilligan, Mark Johnson, Melissa Bernstein, Thomas Schnauz and Gennifer Hutchison.  The series recently garnered a 2018 Peabody Award, and, over three seasons, has earned 23 Emmy® Award nominations, three Golden Globe® Award nominations, two Writers Guild Awards, three Critics’ Choice Awards, a Television Critics Association Award and two AFI Awards for “TV Programs of the Year,” among many other Guild nominations. Created by Gilligan and Gould, the series stars Bob Odenkirk, Jonathan Banks, Rhea Seehorn, Patrick Fabian, Michael Mando and Giancarlo Esposito.


Wyatt Russell as Sean "Dud" Dudley

AMC’s new original series “Lodge 49” continues Monday, August 20th at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. On the third episode, “Corpus,” Liz and Dud hold a memorial for their father, while Ernie and Connie finally get a weekend alone together. This episode is written by Jim Gavin and directed by Jake Schreier.

“Lodge 49” is a light-hearted, endearing modern fable set in Long Beach, California about a disarmingly optimistic local ex-surfer, Dud (Wyatt Russell), who’s drifting after the death of his father and collapse of the family business. Dud serendipitously finds himself on the doorstep of a rundown fraternal lodge, where a middle-aged plumbing salesman and “Luminous Knight” of the order, Ernie (Jennings), welcomes him into a world of cheap beer, easy camaraderie and the promise of Alchemical mysteries that may — or may not — put Dud on the path to recover the idyllic life he's lost.  Jim Gavin (Author, Middle Men) serves as creator, writer, and executive-producer alongside showrunner Peter Ocko (Pushing Daisies, The Office).  Additional executive producers include Paul Giamatti (“Billions,” Sideways, Outsiders, Hoke), Dan Carey (Outsiders, Hoke, John Dies at the End, All Is Bright) and Jeff Freilich (“Halt and Catch Fire,” “Grace and Frankie”).

URBAN ONE FOUNDER AND CHAIRPERSON CATHY HUGHES HONORS AND REMEMBERS THE LEGACY OF HER FRIEND, ARETHA FRANKLIN

Founder and Chairperson of Urban One, Inc., Cathy Hughes, a radio legend and close friend to Aretha Franklin who worked with and interviewed Franklin many times over the years, issued a statement of her sincerest condolences to Franklin's family, friends and colleagues upon receiving  news of Franklin's passing.  Below are excerpts from Hughes' statement, click here to view in it's entirety.

"Today I join my community, my industry and the world in mourning the loss and celebrating the life of my dear sister, friend, and ally, Aretha Franklin. I send my love and offer prayers of grace and peace to the members of her family, her friends and colleagues who walked alongside her and shared her with tens of millions of fans around the world.

I have so many fond memories of Aretha. Throughout her career, I was blessed to share her music and her iconic story. I am humbled to have been a part of her journey and to have served as an eyewitness to the evolution of her artistry and the formation of her legacy. 

Like many of our musicians, Aretha's musical roots are embedded in the black church, and gospel music was at her core. Her talent transcended genres and not only earned her the title of the "Queen of Soul" but also the distinction of being the first woman to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. And while many will remember her for all of the titles she has received, I 
believe, Aretha Franklin, in her own words, said it best,'being a singer is a natural gift. It means I'm using to the highest degree possible the gift that God gave me to use. I'm happy with that.' 

And Aretha Franklin, so are we. Rest in peace my sister."

Starz Acquires Nine Exclusive First-Run Documentaries Including "Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood"

Starz Acquires Nine Exclusive First-Run Documentaries Including "Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood"
The film is the deliciously scandalous story of Scotty Bowers, a handsome ex-Marine who landed in Hollywood after the Second World War and became confidant, aide-de-camp and lover to many of Hollywood's greatest male - and female - stars.
[via press release from Starz] STARZ ACQUIRES NINE EXCLUSIVE FIRST-RUN DOCUMENTARIES INCLUDING "SCOTTY AND THE SECRET HISTORY OF HOLLYWOOD"

Slate Also Features Gender Bias Doc "Half the Picture;" All Films Will Be Available on STARZ, the STARZ App and STARZ ON DEMAND

Santa Monica, Calif. - August 16, 2018 - Starz, a Lionsgate company (NYSE: LGF.A, LGF.B), today announced the recent acquisition of nine documentaries, including Matt Tyrnauer's scandalous and controversial documentary Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood, which will premiere on STARZ in early 2019.

Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood is the deliciously scandalous story of Scotty Bowers, a handsome ex-Marine who landed in Hollywood after the Second World War and became confidant, aide-de-camp and lover to many of Hollywood's greatest male - and female - stars. An unsung Hollywood legend, Bowers would cater to the sexual appetites of celebrities - straight, gay and omnivorous - for decades. In 2012, he finally spilled his secrets in the bestselling memoir Full Service, which revealed a dramatic counter-narrative about Hollywood's Golden Age.

In addition to Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood, poignant and intriguing documentaries slated to air on STARZ this fall and early 2019 include Fail State, executive produced by news legend Dan Rather, which investigates the dark side of American higher education; Half the Picture, about gender bias in Hollywood as told by leading female film directors; This is Congo, an unflinching look into Africa's longest continuing conflict; and Always at the Carlyle, which reveals the untold stories of Manhattan's 87-year-old legendary hotel.

The documentaries will be available for download or streaming via the STARZ app which offers subscribers access to more than 7,000 selections including STARZ Originals "Power," "Outlander," "Vida," among others; movies and television series.

"In a continued effort to bring an immersive experience to our viewers, these groundbreaking documentaries cover a wide range of the human experience and will certainly entertain and enlighten our audience this fall," said C. Brett Marottoli, Head of Program Acquisitions for Starz.

Premiere date details and descriptions are below:
Rebels on Pointe - August 20, 2018
Rebels on Pointe is the first-ever cinéma vérité documentary film celebrating Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo - the all-male, drag ballet company founded over 40 years ago on the heels of New York's Stonewall riots. Highlighted by amazing performances shot around the world, Rebels on Pointe ultimately celebrates our shared humanity through universal themes of identity, dreams, family, love, loss, determination and resilience. It proves that a ballerina is not merely a woman dancing, but an act of revolution in a tutu.

Land of the Free - September 10, 2018
Set in South Central Los Angeles, Land of the Free follows the lives of three individuals who have been impacted by a prison system that focuses on punishment rather than prevention and rehabilitation. All three characters have been deeply damaged by their experiences and are now living in a state of isolation, attempting to start over again. The director's compassionate observation of the human condition results in a moving and intimate portrait as three lives seemingly merge into one life story in a society where help is scarce and one has to rely on one's own resources to get by.

Getting Naked: A Burlesque Story - October 8, 2018
Getting Naked: A Burlesque Story peels back the curtain to reveal the sexy subculture of the neo-burlesque scene in New York City. This verité documentary intimately follows four performers, each of whom has discovered a new identity and a sense of belonging. However, they find that all that glitters is not necessarily gold because this liberating community does not insulate them from the harsh realities of sexism, illness and existential crisis. Getting Naked explores what it means to be an artist, an entertainer and a woman in the toughest city on Earth.

Half the Picture - October 22, 2018
Gender inequality in Hollywood is the subject of this 2018 Sundance Film Festival World Premiere. Featuring interviews with high-profile women directors including Ava DuVernay (Selma), Lena Dunham ("Girls"), Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight) and Jill Soloway ("Transparent"), the documentary explores the sacrifices women have made to get a seat at the table. ACLU's Melissa Goodman, Sundance Institute's Caroline Libresco, Vanity Fair's Rebecca Keegan, USC's Dr. Stacy Smith and San Diego State University's Dr. Martha Lauzen establish the magnitude of this employment discrimination issue as women are shut out - across the board - of an industry that systemically denies them their expression and point of view.

This Is Congo - November 5, 2018
In this Venice Film Festival world premiere, Ivoirian actor Isaach De Bankolé lends his voice to a cinematic gem that provides an immersive and unfiltered look into Africa's longest continuing conflict. By following four compelling characters - a whistleblower, a patriotic military commander, a mineral dealer and a displaced tailor - the film offers viewers a truly Congolese perspective on the problems that plague this lushly beautiful nation and those who are surviving within it.

Ferrari: Race to Immortality - November 19, 2018
Ferrari: Race to Immortality tells the story of the loves, losses, triumphs and tragedies of Ferrari's most decorated drivers in an era when it was la dolce vita during the week and a coin toss of whether they lived or died on the weekend. Italian racing driver Enzo Ferrari formed the team in the golden years of motor racing, pushing the young drivers to their very limit in order to achieve success.

Always at The Carlyle - December 3, 2018
While the walls at The Carlyle don't talk, they definitely whisper. Matthew Miele's Always at The Carlyle brings to life the untold stories of this legendary hotel as heard from the mouths of its own employees, as well as top clientele including George Clooney, Anjelica Huston, Tommy Lee Jones, Vera Wang, Anthony Bourdain, Roger Federer, Wes Anderson, Sofia Coppola, Jon Hamm, Lenny Kravitz, Naomi Campbell and Elaine Stritch.

Fail State - December 17, 2018
Executive produced by news legend Dan Rather, Fail State investigates the dark side of American higher education, chronicling decades of policy decisions in Washington, DC that have given rise to a powerful and highly predatory for-profit college industry. With echoes of the subprime mortgage crisis, the film lays bare how for-profit colleges exploited millions of low-income and minority students, leaving them drowning in student loan debt with worthless degrees.
