Adventurer and explorer Josh Gates (host of Travel Channel's hit series "Expedition Unknown") reinvents adventure travel by exploring the wild side of Dubai, all in a single night.

Later, he finds himself in a hotel room with a price tag of $30,000 dollars a night, before feeding sharks at one of the world's largest saltwater aquariums, which happens to be situated in the same hotel. Gates' wild ride continues when he delivers a one-of-a-kind sushi dish to a rich party animal at the famous nightclub, Billionaire Mansion. With little time to spare, he tops off his night catching falcons from a hot air balloon in the crown jewel of the Middle East.

STUDIO CITY, CA - February 22, 2017 - Crime-solving baker Hannah Swensen's first-ever televised bake-off competition is heating up, but when the judges start dropping like fallen soufflés - and one is found dead of very unnatural causes - Hannah discovers two things; this is no cookie-cutter murder, and as the lead judge she might very well be the next victim, in "Murder, She Baked: Just Desserts."

Showtime(R) Announces Premiere Date for "Dark Net" Season Two

Showtime(R) Announces Premiere Date for "Dark Net" Season Two
The series chronicles the ways in which the Internet has pervaded our communities, relationships and minds, and exposes the dangers of an unregulated, unsupervised digital frontier.

[via press release from Showtime]
    
SHOWTIME(R) ANNOUNCES PREMIERE DATE FOR "DARK NET" SEASON TWO
Network's Provocative Documentary Series Returns Thursday, April 6th At 10 PM ET/PT
NEW YORK, NY - February 21, 2017 - The second season of DARK NET, the provocative docu-series produced by Vocativ Films that shines a spotlight on the dark recesses of the deep web, will return to SHOWTIME's primetime schedule Thursday, April 6th at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. DARK NET chronicles the ways in which the Internet has pervaded our communities, relationships and minds, and exposes the dangers of an unregulated, unsupervised digital frontier.

Following its eye-opening debut last year, the second season of DARK NET takes viewers on sharper, even more unnerving turns as it depicts the perilous consequences that result when the virtual world invades every aspect of our lives - our homes and communities, our money and jobs, even our bodies, minds and identities. The series exposes how we unwittingly surrender access to the most personal aspects of our lives because of our dependence on technology and willingness to do anything for convenience. Even our most intimate interactions and transactions are networked via data we willingly provide, transforming each of us into data points for companies, governments, workplaces, merchandisers and others. DARK NET episodes showcase stories, characters and data sourced by Vocativ's proprietary deep web technology. Over the course of eight half-hour episodes, season two of DARK NET documents the vast extent to which our collected information and data is building an interconnected global net that has perhaps rendered us the last generation of privacy.
DARK NET is produced and developed by Vocativ Films, the television production arm of cutting-edge media and technology company Vocativ. Vocativ's proprietary IoT and data analytics technology reveals hidden perspectives, unheard voices and emerging trends that enable DARK NET to expose critical stories of a dramatically changing - and dangerous - world. DARK NET was created by Vocativ's founder, visionary entrepreneur Mati Kochavi, and is executive produced by Danna Rabin, Vivian Schiller and Adi Kochavi for Vocativ Films and David Shadrack Smith for Part2 Productions.

In advance of the April 6th premiere, SHOWTIME is airing the entire first season of DARK NET. The first episode aired on Thursday, February 9th, and SHOWTIME will continue to air one episode per week at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT until the season two premiere. Viewers can also catch up on the first season of DARK NET on SHOWTIME, SHOWTIME ON DEMAND(R), SHOWTIME ANYTIME(R) and the SHOWTIME streaming service.

LIVE BROADCAST OF SCIENCE CHANNEL'S "MYTHBUSTERS: THE SEARCH" FINALE ON SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 25 AT 9PM ET TO REVEAL NEW MYTHBUSTERS
(NEW YORK) - In a LIVE broadcast of Science Channel's MYTHBUSTERS: THE SEARCH on Saturday, February 25 at 9pm ET, the next generation of Mythbusters will be revealed. Throughout the season, the final four contenders have all earned the right to be called Mythbusters, displaying killer myth-busting build skills, science smarts and remarkable nerves. Unfortunately, not all of them will walk away as Mythbusters. The finale, featuring MYTHBUSTERS: THE SEARCH host and Nerdist science editor Kyle Hill, will originate from Jersey City's Liberty Science Center.

MYTHBUSTERS: THE SEARCH, premiered in January, starting off with ten contestants tasked with testing out everyday myths. The myths ran the gamut from whether it's possible to find a needle in a haystack, to finding out if deflating footballs makes them easier to catch, to seeing if one can paint a room with explosives.

The field is now whittled down to four, whose final myth-busting project, water heater jail break, is designed to see if a water heater could be used as a rocket to escape from prison.

The final four are:

· Martin Pepper of Tucson, Arizona, a tinkerer and inventor with degrees in geology, ecology and psychology.

· Brian Louden of Spring, Texas, a certified rescue diver, pilot, and drone enthusiast with impressive build skills.

· Jonathan Lung of Staten Island, NY, a product designer, who always finds a way to build with his hands, whether it is designing and building furniture, or generating concepts and prototypes.
· Tamara Robertson of Los Angeles, an engineer, who grew up in Eastern, North Carolina watching a lot of Star Trek with her father, who also fostered Tamara's love of machinery as well all things technical.

Mythbusters: The Explosive Exhibition, an interactive museum exhibit on display through September 4, 2017 at the Liberty Science Center, will serve as the backdrop to the MYTHBUSTERS: THE SEARCH finale.

MythBusters made its television debut on Discovery Channel in 2003 and ended its fourteen year run on the network last year. The series earned eight consecutive Emmy nominations for Outstanding Reality Program from 2009-2016 and was produced by Beyond Productions in San Francisco. The program fused scientific method with gleeful curiosity and plain old-fashioned ingenuity to create a signature style of explosive experimentation.

MYTHBUSTERS: THE SEARCH is produced for Science Channel by Beyond Productions. Dan Tapster and John Luscombe are executive producers. For Science Channel, Wyatt Channell is executive producer with Lindsey Foster Blumberg as producer.

ABOUT "LOVE THY NEIGHBOR"
Tyler Perry's "Love Thy Neighbor" returns to OWN for its fourth season. A lot has happened since season one. Linda's married. Danny's married. Linda's still pregnant, or at least she starts off that way. Drew is still in love with Danny. Sam is still in love with Danny, in a guy sort of way. And Floyd is still a pain in everyone's rear end as the attitudinal restaurant host by day who moonlights as a landlord by night. It is against this backdrop that the laughs begin to fly as Hattie Mae begins to delve into every situation to meddle in it, complicate it, mess it all up, or in some cases, fix it... or something like that. This season opens with Sam and Drew desperate to fix their broken friendship with Danny. As the friends find common ground, Danny and Troy settle into married life. Troy seems to finally cement her role in first position as the wife, although not everyone is happy about it. Danny finds time for the others, but Troy is finally his priority. In dramatic fashion, as only "Love Thy Neighbor" could do it, the gang help Linda bring a new baby into the world. They help her literally. Mama Hattie saves the day as the infant is born in the most unlikely of places. Linda and Phillip are delighted as they settle down as happy parents of a healthy baby girl. As for Sam and Drew... well their lives take a zany, unexpected, and somewhat creepy turn. All in all... problems get fixed, lessons are learned, and as always love wins the day. Love Thy Neighbor Season 4 promises to be the funniest ever... only on OWN. "Love Thy Neighbor" is written and executive produced by Tyler Perry. The series is produced by Tyler Perry Studios.

[via press release from HBO]
    
EDITORS, PLEASE NOTE:
HBO has confirmed that the documentary ROCK AND A HARD PLACE will debut MONDAY, MARCH 27 at 10:00 p.m. (ET/PT).
 
The HBO Documentary film looks at incarcerated young people who are granted a second chance: the opportunity to trade an extensive prison sentence for a fresh start by completing the famed Miami-Dade County Corrections & Rehabilitation Boot Camp, a one-of-a-kind, six-month program in which drill sergeants push inmates to their limit, encouraging them to learn from past mistakes and become constructive members of society who are substantially less likely to return to prison. Dwayne Johnson, whose own experiences with the law as a youth inspired the special, appears in the documentary. Johnson serves as an executive producer of the documentary alongside his Seven Bucks Productions co-founder, Dany Garcia and Rasha Drachkovitch, co-founder and CEO of 44 Blue Productions. Directed and produced by Jon Alpert and Matthew O'Neill.
