These events have evolved into fierce, thrilling competitions with the baddest drivers and trucks out there. In this all-new series, the Dirty 7 - a crew of top racers in Central Florida - get down and dirty in The Pit facing challengers from around the country and pushing their machines to the limit. DIRTY MUDDER TRUCKERS premieres Monday, May 27th at 10pm ET/PT on Discovery Channel.

This track is designed to eat up mega trucks, and only the toughest will cross the finish line in one piece. With seven races, a cash prize on the line and unlimited side bets, the crews battle it out in a head to head grudge match to see who will come out on top, take home the cold, hard cash and earn bragging rights as the best crew out there. For the Dirty 7, truck racing isn't just a passion, it's a way of life. These men put blood, sweat and tears into building and racing their mega trucks to prove they're the baddest crew around. The race masters, Chris Ledford and Matt Steele, are constantly in the thick of it as handlers of the prize pot, money, car parts, final race results and everything in between while the resident gearhead, Chuck, makes sure the trucks are up to standard and ready to race at their full potential. Growing up with truck racing in their blood, every crew knows the Dirty 7 are the ones to beat. The rising star of the Dirty 7 in Central Florida, Chris Libak has turned his 392 small block Chevy nicknamed Animalistic, into a wild ride, while Pete's 1993 Toyota mega truck known as Chasin' Paper will do whatever it takes to get the cash money. Keith Spiker takes it to the limit in his 1983, bright orange Chevy 1500, known as Hammerhead and Randy Priest hits The Pit in his 2003 Dodge Dakota, Mudstick - a big nasty truck with a lot of horsepower. Wes Jr. is all about the adrenaline rush when he is Ridin Dirty in his high jumping, mega truck.

OSLO KILLING, THE (SUNDANCE NOW)
· [series premiere] · 6/4/19 at 3:01 AM
· [regularly airs] · tuesdays from 3:01 AM-4:00 AM EST
(from SundanceTV's press release, October 2018) DRG announced today a deal for The Oslo Killing, a gripping, six-hour true crime series, to be co-produced between Discovery Networks Norway and Sundance Now, in association with Monster, Norway's largest production company. The Oslo Killing will premiere in 2019 in North America, UK, Ireland, and German-speaking Europe on Sundance Now, AMC Networks' direct-to-consumer SVOD service curated with high-quality dramas and true crime series. The Oslo Killing is currently in production with Monster. The Oslo Killing examines an unsolved crime that spans four decades and crosses several countries: Norway, Spain, Argentina and the U.S. In April 1974, Anni Nielsen Iranzo was found brutally murdered at her home in Oslo, Norway. She was beaten and strangled with a rope, while two months pregnant. Initially, the brutality of the act led the police to focus their investigation solely on male suspects. Anni's husband, a Spanish diplomat with shady connections, was number one on their list. The police also considered intruders and people with political motives, such as the Basque separatist movement, but the only witness to the murder told an entirely different story. Anni's four-year-old daughter, Maria, said she saw a woman sitting on her mother's legs. This led the police to a wealthy American woman, Minna Treadwell Thompson, who was having an affair with Anni's husband. Minna was in Oslo at the time of the murder, but safely home in the U.S. when the police sent out an international warrant for her arrest. To this day, the Norwegian police have never been able to extradite Minna Treadwell Thompson. This extraordinary real life Scandinavian crime series follows Maria's emotional journey across the world, from her home in Argentina, to reveal the truth and find justice for her mother once and for all. It tells the never-before-told story about Anni's violent murder and how it stirred up international relations between three countries.

Raising eight children hasn't granted Kate much time for romance, but with her sextuplets grown and her oldest twins off to college in the fall, the time is right for the well-known mother of multiples to find that special someone. Over the years on TLC, viewers have seen Kate as a mom of eight. Whether wading neck-deep in diapers and sippy cups, scrambling to get the kids off to school or stressing over every last detail of birthday parties, her world has always revolved around being a mom - but moms deserve the chance to find love too! Devoting herself full-time to her eight children has left Kate's dating skills a bit rusty, so she enlists the help of expert matchmakers Rachel DeAlto and Adam LoDolce to guide her through this very new - and often awkward - process. They'll help Kate find her perfect match, setting her up on dates with 10 bachelors over the course of the series. The dates are composed of two activities: one that's fun and interactive, and another that's more intimate where the pair can really see if there's a spark. Kate's college-bound twins Mady and Cara are equally invested in finding their mom a partner, providing encouragement and colorful commentary along the way. Throughout the six-part series, viewers will follow Kate's journey as she evolves from reserved and cautious to open and invested. While the first few dates are awkward, even "painful" in Kate's words, she eventually learns to trust the process with the support of her matchmakers and daughters. Mady and Cara don't hold anything back when it comes to advising their mom, but ultimately, Kate has the final say. After being wooed by all ten mystery men, she is faced with the difficult decision of choosing just two guys to take on a second date. The pressure is on. From adventurous and challenging encounters to fun and surprising moments, Kate puts it all out there on display: the good, the bad and the awkward! Throughout the process, she lets her guard down and learns a lot about herself and exactly what it's going to take to find everlasting love.

(from Disney Channel's press release, April 2019) Breaking through the pack, the ambitious new series "Just Roll With It" blends improvisational comedy with a family sitcom to seize an audacious opportunity that allows the studio audience to vote on the direction of key scenes, throughout the filming, while the actors are backstage. When the actors return to the stage, they have no idea what's coming at them. A feat of planning and physical production each episode, the comedy series was created and is executive produced by Adam Small and Trevor Moore (Disney's "Walk the Prank") with a production crew led by Skot Bright (Disney's "Walk the Prank").

Byron is an on-air radio personality on BEATZ 101 and Rachel is a decorated military veteran who now produces his daily show in their hometown of Akron, Ohio.
