Fans of 90 DAY FIANCÉ: BEFORE THE 90 DAYS have been glued to Darcey through four seasons of globe-trotting, long-distance love affairs followed by heartbreaking, tear-filled break-ups, always with her devoted twin Stacey by her side to lend a shoulder to cry on.

The adventure begins Sunday, August 16 at 10PM ET/PT following new episodes of HAPPILY EVER AFTER? "For the past four seasons of our record-breaking series BEFORE THE 90 DAYS, fans have become obsessed with Darcey and her twin sister Stacey. They have clamored to follow along further on their quest for true love," said TLC President and General Manager Howard Lee. "One of the reasons for the success of the 90 Day franchise is the raw, real and captivating individuals who share their stories with us. Darcey and Stacey don't hold back - they live life out loud. We cannot wait to share their next chapter in this all-new series." In DARCEY & STACEY, the twins open the doors wide to their lives while they juggle relationships, family and their unique world of being twins. As the series begins, we follow while Darcey heals over yet another failed relationship with British ex-boyfriend Tom and as Stacey gears up for a major step in her own love life. After a five-year engagement to Albanian fiancé Florian, they have finally been approved for the K-1 Visa. Florian and Stacey will have 90 days to get married once Florian arrives, but Darcey has lingering doubts about his commitment to Stacey after photos of him with another woman surfaced online, sparking rumors that he was unfaithful. The twins have always done everything together - they were married and divorced at the same time, have raised their families in the same home and even got cosmetic surgery together! Now, Stacey is preparing for her new life with Florian while Darcey is on a mission to find a whole new love. And, while Darcey always seems to get hit by cupid's international arrow, she finds, once again, that love is never easy. From their hair extensions and nails to their eye-catching fashions, Darcey and Stacey are as over-the-top in their style as their joint determination to find international love. Yet they are also relatable as great mothers, devoted sisters and fabulous women in their 40s yearning for stable, long-lasting love. This season will also take a closer look at the rest of the Silva family including their father Mike, Darcey's teenage daughters Aniko and Aspen and their mother, Nancy.

The group has never met in person - let alone worked together - before deciding to join one couple who have set up an off-grid outpost and are looking for individuals to create their new community. They come from completely different backgrounds -- including an Army vet, a sporting goods salesman, a homesteader and a mountain man. They only have 100 days to work together to hunt, gather, and build before the brutal, arctic freeze. They won't survive winter if they can't survive each other. Rooted in the idea of nomadic living, these brave few are leaving our modern world with its conveniences and complications as they run toward a new way of life and their shared dream of self-sufficiency. Anthropological evidence shows individuals who embrace a hunter-gather lifestyle -- living off the land for survival by sharing natural resources they harvest to build and sustain their community - have higher levels of physical health and well-being. Each member of the group has a desire to test their ability to thrive, and not just survive, out of their comfort zone and in a completely different environment. Can they overcome their differences and support each other during a daunting 100-day sprint before winter?

Led by icon and activist Samuel L. Jackson, Enslaved sheds new light on 400 years of human trafficking from Africa to the New World. Based on a DNA test identifying his ancestral tribe, the series traces Jackson's personal journey from the U.S. to Gabon for his induction into the Benga tribe, with rare and unprecedented access to secret ceremonies and local customs. Following its launch on EPIX, Enslaved will also premiere on CBC in Canada on Sunday, October 18 at 9 p.m. (9:30 NT). The series is being distributed internationally by Fremantle. Using new diving technology - such as advanced 3D mapping and ground-penetrating radar - to locate and examine sunken slave ships on three continents, the series reveals an entirely new perspective on the history of the transatlantic slave trade. The series also tracks the efforts of Diving With a Purpose (DWP), a collaborating organization with The National Association of Black Scuba Divers (NABS), as they search for and locate six slave ships that sank drowning the enslaved humans aboard. Featuring the most dives ever made on sunken slave ships, Enslaved also chronicles the first positive identification of a "Freedom Ship," an American schooner that ferried African American runaways to Canada. Each episode follows three separate story lines: the quest for a sunken slave ship, a personal journey by Samuel L. Jackson and a historical investigation led by investigative journalists Simcha Jacobovici and Afua Hirsch. Enslaved also celebrates stories of resistance, accomplishment and hope; the cultures left behind and the culture that we live in presently... a culture that, in many ways, was born in the bowels of those sunken slave ships.

(from AMC Networks' press release, August 2020) Gangs of London's critically acclaimed first season was a huge success in the UK as it took audiences on an immersive journey into the hidden heart of the capital. The 10-episode first season of the action-packed thriller debuts on AMC+ this fall for US audiences and has been renewed for a second season with the network on board to co-produce. Set in the heart of one of the world's most dynamic and multicultural cities, Gangs of London tells the story of a city being torn apart by the turbulent power struggles of the international gangs that control it and the sudden power vacuum that's created when the head of London's most powerful crime family is assassinated. The series stars a multi-talented ensemble cast including Joe Cole (Peaky Blinders, Pure, Black Mirror), Ṣọpẹ́ Dìrísù (Humans), Colm Meaney (Star Trek, Hell on Wheels, Layer Cake), Lucian Msamati (His Dark Materials, Black Earth Rising, Kiri), Michelle Fairley (Game of Thrones, Suits) Paapa Essiedu (Press, Kiri) and Pippa Bennett-Warner (MatherFatherSon, Harlots, Sick Note). For 20 years, Finn Wallace (Meaney) was the most powerful criminal in London. Billions of pounds flowed through his organization each year. But now he's dead - and nobody knows who ordered the hit. With rivals everywhere, it's up to the impulsive Sean Wallace (Cole), with the help of the Dumani family headed by Ed Dumani (Msamati), to take his father's place. If the situation wasn't already dangerous enough, Sean's assumption of power causes ripples in the world of international crime. Perhaps the one man who might be able to help him and be his ally is Elliot Finch (Dìrísù), who up until now, has been one of life's losers, a lowlife chancer with a mysterious interest in the Wallace family. But as the wind of fate blows, Elliot finds himself transported to the inner workings of the largest criminal organization in London. It doesn't end with the Wallaces though, there are shadowy higher powers at play.

BLACK CHURCH, THE: THIS IS OUR STORY, THIS IS OUR SONG (PBS)
· [series premiere] · 2/16/21 at 9:00 PM
· [regularly airs] · tuesdays from 9:00 PM-11:00 PM EST
(from PBS's press release, July 2020) Today at the Virtual PBS Press Tour, PBS and WETA announced THE BLACK CHURCH: THIS IS OUR STORY, THIS IS OUR SONG will premiere February 16 and 23, 2021 at 9:00 p.m. ET on PBS stations nationwide (check local listings). This moving four-hour, two-part series from executive producer, host and writer Henry Louis Gates, Jr., the Alphonse Fletcher University Professor at Harvard University and director of the Hutchins Center for African and African American Research, traces the 400-year-old story of the Black church in America, all the way down to its bedrock role as the site of African American survival and grace, organizing and resilience, thriving and testifying, autonomy and freedom, solidarity and speaking truth to power. The documentary reveals how Black people have worshipped and, through their spiritual journeys, improvised ways to bring their faith traditions from Africa to the New World, while translating them into a form of Christianity that was not only truly their own, but a redemptive force for a nation whose original sin was found in their ancestors' enslavement across the Middle Passage. Renowned participants in the series include media executive and philanthropist Oprah Winfrey; singer, songwriter, producer and philanthropist John Legend; singer and actress Jennifer Hudson; Presiding Bishop Michael Curry of The Episcopal Church; gospel legends Yolanda Adams, Pastor Shirley Caesar and BeBe Winans; civil rights leaders Rev. Al Sharpton and Rev. William Barber II; scholar Cornel West; and many more. Through their interviews, viewers will be transported by the songs that speak to one's soul, by preaching styles that have moved congregations and a nation, and by beliefs and actions that drew African Americans from the violent margins of society to the front lines of change. For many, the Black church is their house of worship. For some, it is ground zero for social justice. For others, it is a place of transcendent cultural gifts exported to the world, from the soulful voices of preachers and congregants, to the sublime sounds of gospel music. For the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., going to church in America also was "the most segregated hour" of the week. THE BLACK CHURCH: THIS IS OUR STORY, THIS IS OUR SONG will explore the changing nature of worship spaces and the men and women who shepherded them from the pulpit, the choir loft and church pews. The churches are also a world within a world, where Black Americans could be themselves; and the epicenter of the freedom struggle that revolutionized the United States across slavery and abolition, Reconstruction, Jim Crow and the Great Migration, and the civil rights movement.
