Lena Olin as Irina and Will Arnett as Jeff
Season two of Sundance Now’s “Riviera,” continues on Thursday, July 25th. On this week’s episode, Georgina (Juila Stiles) confesses her darkest truth to a horrified Jeff (Will Arnett). While he confronts a distraught Irina (Lena Olin) over her part in the conspiracy of silence, an explosive secret held by Cassandra (Juliet Stevenson) finally gets out. Georgina is called to the fort where she comes face to face with a familiar face from her past.
“Riviera’s” highly anticipated return picks up in the immediate aftermath of the explosive first series finale, where the Clios family is faced with the tragic death of one of their own. Only this time, the blood is on the hands of our female protagonist, Georgina.
As Georgina tries to find a way to live with her crime, secrets from her past wash up on the sandy shores of the Cote d’Azur that force her to explore her turbulent childhood against her will. Following an unprecedented and unavoidable visit to her childhood home, Georgina returns with a refreshed sense of self to re-establish her power and position in the family alongside her charismatic confidant, uncle Jeff (Will Arnett).
Georgina very quickly becomes acquainted with the Eltham family, an English dynasty that sail in to the Cote d'Azur providing its shores with a dose of new money and glamour. She goes on to form relationships with the whole family, some that appear genuine from the outset and others that unravel around her as secrets, old and new, become exposed. Juliet Stevenson takes on the role of Lady Cassandra Eltham and is joined on the Riviera by her children, the impossibly stylish Daphne (Poppy Delevingne) and the brooding Nico (Jack Fox) and Daphne’s husband Raafi (Alex Lanipekun).
Elsewhere in the Riviera, the rest of the Clios family is still reeling from Constantine’s death. Christos (Dimitri Leonidas) is on the brink of losing everything, Adriana (Roxanne Duran) loses herself in a dangerous affair and Irina struggles to find her lost son, Adam.
The Riviera has never been so tempestuous. Torn between her past and her present, can Georgina navigate her way to safer waters or will she lose her place in a world that she has grown to control?
Chris Harris, Paddy McGuinness and Freddie Flintoff
Season 27 of “Top Gear” continues on Sunday, July 28th. On this week’s episode, according to Paddy McGuinness, the perfect second-hand family car is not a sturdy Volvo estate, or a dependable Land Rover Discovery. No, the perfect second-hand family car is… an old hearse. His logic? They’re spacious, carefully driven, and really very cheap, on account of no sane human wanting to buy something that’s spent a decade ferrying corpses about. To prove the genius of his plan, Paddy bought himself an old Daimler hearse, and invited Chris Harris and Freddie Flintoff to the Top Gear test track to experience its magnificence. Magnificence that was, for some reason, best proved by loading the hearse with vegetables and lawnmowers and grandmothers. Convinced, somehow, of Paddy’s genius, Chris and Freddie took it upon themselves to lightly upgrade Paddy’s Daimler, transforming it from hearse into… the Overtaker, Britain’s ultimate family car. Which the Top Gear producers then challenged to a series of sensible, family car tests including a beach assault course, a hill climb off-road challenge, and a no-holds-barred banger race. It was during the hill climb off road challenge, with Freddie at the wheel, that things went really, really wrong.
The new season sees Paddy, Freddie and Chris tackling the fastest, hottest, toughest Top Gear challenges to date: pushing their cars, and themselves, to the very limits of endurance. From the brutal heat of the Ethiopian desert to the pedestrianized shopping district of downtown Mansfield in England, Top Gear is going bigger than ever before - all brought from the world-famous Top Gear test track, where a fresh batch of celebrities will demonstrate their driving prowess, or lack thereof, in the Reasonably Fast Car as well as being put through a new challenge which will be set by the presenters each week.
Ashleigh Cummings as Vic McQueen
AMC’s supernatural horror series, “NOS4A2,” finales with two back-to-back episodes on Sunday, July 28th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. On the penultimate episode, “Sleigh House,” Vic strives to rescue a loved one despite Maggie’s warning. Manx learns a disappointing detail about Vic.
Then, on the season finale episode, “Gunbarrel,” Vic enlists help to confront Charlie Manx. On the way to Christmasland, Manx makes a pitstop.
“NOS4A2” stars Emmy®-nominated actor and producer Zachary Quinto (“Star Trek,” “American Horror Story”) and rising star Ashleigh Cummings (“The Goldfinch”). Emmy®-nominated director Kari Skogland (“The Handmaid’s Tale,” “Sons of Liberty”) directed the first two episodes of the series. The cast also includes Olafur Darri Olafsson (“Lady Dynamite”), Virginia Kull (“The Looming Tower”), Ebon Moss-Bachrach (“The Punisher”) and Jahkara Smith (aka Sailor J). The series is executive produced by showrunner Jami O’Brien (“Fear the Walking Dead,” “Hell on Wheels”), Lauren Corrao, co-president of Tornante Television, and Joe Hill. The series is produced by AMC Studios in association with Tornante Television.
Based on the 2013 novel by Joe Hill, “NOS4A2” introduces Vic McQueen (Ashleigh Cummings), a gifted young woman who discovers she has a supernatural ability to find lost things. This ability puts her on a collision course with the evil and immortal Charlie Manx (Zachary Quinto). Manx is a supernatural villain who feeds off the souls of children and then deposits what remains of them into Christmasland — a twisted place of Manx’s imagination where every day is Christmas Day and unhappiness is against the law. Vic strives to defeat Manx and rescue his victims — without losing her mind or falling victim to him herself.
