Freddie Fox as Strauss, Matt Berry as Detective Inspector Rabbit

IFC’s new comedy series Year of the Rabbit continues on Wednesday, February 26th at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT. In the second episode, “Brick Man,” a new killer stalks the streets of London, disguised as the Brick Man, a terrifying figure from urban folklore. Rabbit and his team have to find the murderer before the city is engulfed by panic and riots.

The new series follows Detective Inspector Rabbit (Matt Berry; Toast of London, What We Do In The Shadows), a hardened booze-hound who’s seen it all, and his hapless, new, by-the-books partner Strauss (Freddie Fox; Cucumber, Banana). While they’re investigating a local murder, the lewd but insightful adoptive daughter (Susan Wokoma; Chewing Gum, Crazyhead) of the chief of police joins them, becoming the country’s first female officer. Together, the trio must fight crime while rubbing shoulders with street gangs, crooked politicians, Bulgarian princes, spiritualists, music hall stars and the Elephant Man.

The season finale of Seven Worlds, One Planet airs on Saturday, February 29th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on BBC AMERICA, AMC, IFC and SundanceTV. Saturday’s season finale focuses on Africa, the home to the greatest wildlife show on Earth. Where chimps make tools, cheetah hunt prey twice their size and, in crystal clear freshwater lakes, devious imposters trick caring fish mothers.

Following Emmy®-winning series Planet Earth II and Blue Planet II, Seven Worlds, One Planet tells the story of earth’s seven spectacular continents and how they shape the extraordinary animal behavior and biodiversity we see today. Narrated by Sir David Attenborough, and featuring a theme co-composed by Hans Zimmer and Jacob Shea, and series score by Jacob Shea for Bleeding Fingers Music, Seven Worlds, One Planet reveals how each distinct continent has shaped the unique animal life found there. The seven-part series marks the first time BBC Studio’s Natural History Unit has explored all the planet’s continents in a single series. Seven Worlds, One Planet is a BBC Studios Natural History Unit production, co-produced with BBC AMERICA, Tencent Penguin Pictures, ZDF, France Télévisions and China Media Group CCTV9.


Mandip Gill as Yasmin Khan, Tosin Cole as Ryan Sinclair, Jodie Whittaker as The Doctor, Bradley Walsh as Graham O'Brien
The season finale of Doctor Who, starring Jodie Whittaker, Bradley Walsh, Tosin Cole and Mandip Gill, airs on Sunday, February 29th at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on BBC AMERICA. In the epic and emotional season finale, “The Timeless Children,” the Cybermen are on the march. As the last remaining humans are ruthlessly hunted down, Graham, Ryan and Yaz face a terrifying fight to survive. Civilizations fall. Others rise anew. Lies are exposed. Truths are revealed. Battles are fought. And for the Doctor — trapped and alone — nothing will ever be the same again.


Eleanor Matsuura as Yumiko, Khary Payton as Ezekiel, Josh McDermitt as Dr. Eugene Porter

The Walking Dead Season 10 continues on Sunday, March 1st at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on AMC. In Sunday’s all-new episode, “Stalker,” our group must defend Alexandria from a threatening, outside force.

The Walking Dead returned last week to find our group of survivors trapped. Some in the confines of a cave filled with walkers, while others were caught in a spiral of suspicion and grief. All orchestrated at the hand of Alpha, who continues to prove the Whisperers are always watching, and one step ahead of the communities. Which includes the new and potentially deadly threat of having added Negan to their ranks.    

Through this conflict and all they’ve lost, a few still hold onto hope, especially Eugene, who believes the mysterious voice he spoke with on the radio may lead to their world getting bigger once again.      

But with the Whisperer War upon them, the collective communities must come together and possibly sacrifice all they have to find a way to silence the Whispers once and for all. Otherwise Alpha will ensure they face a certain doom.     

Later, viewers can catch an all-new episode of Talking Dead hosted by Chris Hardwick at 11:16 p.m. ET/PT, featuring The Walking Dead cast member Thora Birch and Executive Producer Denise Huth.


Jason Segel as Peter
Part one of Dispatches From Elsewhere two-night premiere event begins on Sunday, March 1st at 10:07 p.m. ET/PT on AMC. In the series premiere, “Peter,” Peter (Jason Segel) is stuck in the everyday routine of his mundane life until the day something changes when he meets a group of strangers who all have something in common. Together, they begin an adventure into a world that has been hidden all around them.
Part two of the series premiere continues in its regular time-slot on Monday, March 2nd with an all-new episode at 10:15 p.m. ET/PT. In the second episode, “Simone,” the game continues as Simone (Eve Lindley) and Peter follow the clues and explore the city; the gang discovers that the game runs deeper than they thought and they have to make an important choice.

Created by and starring Jason Segel, the ten-hour series is centered around four ordinary people who feel there’s something missing in their lives, but they can’t quite put their finger on what it is. This diverse foursome is brought together by chance – or perhaps it’s by design – when they stumble onto a puzzle hiding just behind the veil of everyday life. As they begin to accept the mysterious ‘Dispatches from Elsewhere’ challenges, they come to find that the mystery winds deeper than they imagined, and their eyes are opened to a world of possibility and magic. Starring alongside Segel are Academy® and Emmy® Award-winner Sally Field, Academy Award®-nominee Richard E. Grant, multi-GRAMMY Award®-winner André Benjamin and rising star Eve Lindley.

The AMC Studios production is executive produced by Segel, Scott Rudin, showrunner Mark Friedman, Garrett Basch, Eli Bush, Jeff Freilich and Alethea Jones.


Bob Odenkirk as Jimmy McGill and Michael Mando as Nacho Varga

Season 5 of Better Call Saul continues on Monday, March 2nd at 9:00p.m ET/PT on AMC. In this week’s all-new episode, “The Guy For This,” Jimmy’s business enters uncharted territory. Kim’s confidence is tested when she’s faced with a legal problem only she can solve. Nacho navigates increased pressure from Gus. Mike continues to spiral.

In the 10-episode fifth season of Better Call Saul, Jimmy McGill’s (Odenkirk) decision to practice law as “Saul Goodman'' creates unexpected and profound waves of change for those in his orbit.  The series stars Bob Odenkirk, Rhea Seehorn, Jonathan Banks, Michael Mando, Giancarlo Esposito, Patrick Fabian and Tony Dalton, and is executive produced by showrunner Peter Gould, Vince Gilligan, Mark Johnson, Melissa Bernstein and Thomas Schnauz. Better Call Saul garnered a 2018 Peabody Award, and, over four seasons, has earned 32 Emmy® Award nominations, three Golden Globe® Award nominations, two Writers Guild Awards, three Critics’ Choice Awards, two Television Critics Association Awards and three AFI Awards for “TV Programs of the Year,'' among many other Guild nominations.

Deal Includes Streaming Rights to Willems’ First Live Action Special
Don’t Let the Pigeon Do Storytime! Produced by Stampede Ventures and Willems

LOS ANGELES – February 25, 2020 Following a highly competitive negotiation, HBO Max has announced an exclusive, multi-year deal with beloved children’s author Mo Willems, an Emmy®-Award winning writer, New York Times best-selling author, and illustrator, establishing Willems as HBO Max’s very first artist in residence. As part of this two-year deal, HBO Max has acquired streaming rights to Willems’ first live-action special Don’t Let the Pigeon Do Storytime! from Greg Silverman’s media company Stampede Ventures who will produce all additional content under this deal. HBO Max has committed to additional live-action Storytime specials, as well as multiple animated specials based on Willems’ wildly popular children’s books. The first animated special will be based on New York Times Best Seller, Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed.

“Mo is a special talent with a profound ability to connect with children and families alike. We are so happy Mo and Stampede Ventures chose to partner with us at HBO Max,” says Kevin Reilly, chief content officer, HBO Max, president, TNT, TBS, and truTV. 


We are so lucky to be able to work with the multi-talented Mo Willems, whose work is authentic, inspiring and truly impactful,” adds Jennifer O’Connell, executive vice president of original non-fiction and kids programming, HBO Max.

“HBO Max is the perfect home for me to work on fun and experimental ways to bring my book characters and theater work to the screen because we share the goal of creating exciting shows and series that bring families together,” says Willems. “My focus is making stuff that amuses, entertains and sparks creative play after the screen is powered down. Having the creative teams of HBO Max and Stampede Ventures with me means that we’ll get to create meaningful work and have fun doing it. We’re so excited we even created a new logo for the occasion. Banana!”

Added Stampede Ventures’ Greg Silverman, “Stampede Ventures is honored to be Mo’s partner as he brings his vibrant world to life in media for the first time and we couldn’t ask for a better home than HBO Max. Mo’s characters are already beloved by millions of families — his books are often the first that many children ever read on their own — and we’re excited to help him bring these characters to life on screen.”

Previously announced and directed by Bobcat Goldthwait, Don’t Let the Pigeon Do Storytime! is a premium, live-action family comedy special featuring Willems and the “Story Time All-Stars”, a group of celebrities, comedians and actors, performing live readings and sketch comedy inspired by Willems’ work, as well as a few surprise musical guests. Celebrity guests include Anthony Anderson (black-ish), Yvette Nicole Brown (Community), Rachel Dratch (Saturday Night Live), Cameron Esposito (Take My Wife), Tony Hale (Veep), Greta Lee (Russian Doll), Tom Lennon (The Odd Couple), Natalie Morales (Abby's) and Oscar Nunez (The Office). Shot over the summer at the prestigious Kennedy Center in Washington, DC., Don’t Let the Pigeon Do Storytime! is produced by Stampede Ventures, with Willems and Stampede’s Greg Silverman, Gideon Yu, Jay Judah and Chris Bosco serving as executive producers.

Willems began his career as a writer and animator on Sesame Street, where he garnered six Emmy® Awards. Willems also created several animated projects for Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon. His New York Times bestselling books have been recognized with many awards around the world including three Caldecott Honors, two Theodor Geisel Medals and five Geisel Honors. Willems has written four musicals based on his books and is the most produced playwright for Theatre for Young Audiences in America. Willems currently serves as the inaugural Education Artist-in-Residence at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, collaborating with artists in Jazz, Classical, Dance, Theater, Opera and Comedy.

The Willems deal with HBO Max was negotiated by Ellen Goldsmith-Vein of the Gotham Group, Marcia Wernick of Wernick & Pratt and Rick Ross of Eisner, LLP on behalf of Willems; Chris Bosco, Anna Pinar and CAA on behalf of Stampede Ventures; and spearheaded by Jay Judah.

New Series "Betty" Debuts May 1, Exclusively on HBO

New Series "Betty" Debuts May 1, Exclusively on HBO
Based on Crystal Moselle's critically acclaimed feature "Skate Kitchen," the six-episode half-hour series will air Friday nights at 11:00/10:00c.

[via press release from HBO]
NEW SERIES "BETTY" DEBUTS MAY 1, EXCLUSIVELY ON HBO

Based on Crystal Moselle's critically acclaimed feature "Skate Kitchen," HBO's new six-episode half-hour series BETTY, debuts FRIDAY, MAY 1 (11:00-11:30 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO.
The series will also be available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and partners' streaming platforms.

Starring Dede Lovelace, Moonbear, Nina Moran, Ajani Russell, and Rachelle Vinberg, who all starred in the original film, BETTY follows a diverse group of young women navigating their lives through the predominantly male-oriented world of skateboarding, set against the backdrop of New York City.

Opinionated and loyal, Janay (Lovelace) is strong willed and stubborn in ways that both help and hurt her. Honeybear (Moonbear) is a quiet storm. Her flagrant style is a ruse; an armor she wears to hide her emotional struggles. Kirt (Moran) is a lover (to the ladies), a fighter (to the rest of the world), and a little kid in the body of a woman. She's the funniest person alive, but even if she knew it, she wouldn't care. Meanwhile, Indigo (Russell) is a street-savvy hustler trapped in the body of a well-to-do art school drop-out. On the edge of the group is Camille (Vinberg), guarded, perceptive, intelligent and awkward. She wants to be down with the dudes in the skate park and has fought hard for the small space she's carved out with them, but she needs to realize that cool points don't actually add up to the sum of anything, especially in the eyes of the other girls.

Recurring cast include Reza Nader as Farouk, Edmund Donovan as Bambi, Caleb Eberhardt as Donald, Katerina Tannenbaum as Ash, Jules Lorenzo as Yvette and Brenn Lorenzo as Celia.
BETTY is directed by Crystal Moselle; executive produced by Moselle, Lesley Arfin, Igor Srubshchik and Jason Weinberg; produced by Arfy Material and Untitled Entertainment.
