SPECIAL OPS: LIONESS
Episodes 1 & 2 drop on July 23rd. There are 8 episodes which run for 60 minutes each. Special Ops: Lioness, inspired by an actual US Military program, follows the life of Joe (Zoe Saldana) while she attempts to balance her personal and professional life as the tip of the CIA’s spear in the war on terror. The Lioness Program, overseen by Kaitlyn Meade (Nicole Kidman) and Donald Westfield (Michael Kelly), enlists an aggressive Marine Raider named Cruz (Laysla De Oliveira) to operate undercover alongside Joe among the power brokers of state terrorism in the CIA’s efforts to thwart the next 9/11.
A THIN LINE
The box set drops on July 6th. It contains 10 episodes of 60 minutes each. As tireless activists, twin sisters Anna and Benni Krohn run an anonymous platform where they expose environmental and climate crimes. Their activities do receive a great deal of attention, but the lamentable situation remains unchanged. When their cover is blown after hacking the government, the introverted Anna is arrested by the feds. The charismatic Benni, however, manages to flee and joins “The Last Stand”, a newly founded terrorist group who are planning a serious attack with unpredictable consequences in order to wake up the world.
The twin sisters, once inseparable in the face of family tension, seem to be growing apart. While Benni is becoming increasingly radicalized, Anna is persuaded by her godfather Christoph Wandler, head of the federal Cybercrime unit, to offer her assistance. Suddenly, the sisters, both convinced of their own righteousness, are on opposing sides.
GHOSTS OF BEIRUT
The box set drops on July 27th. It contains 4 episodes of 60 minutes each. Ghosts Of Beirut is a four-part spy drama based on one of the elusive espionage stories of modern times: the manhunt for Imad Mughniyeh, the elusive Lebanese terrorist who outwitted his adversaries in the CIA and Mossad for over two decades. The limited series, which features an innovative narrative approach augmented by deep journalistic research and documentary elements, reveals the origins of 21-year-old Mughniyeh who emerged from obscurity and was responsible for more American deaths than any other individual prior to 9/11.
Told from the American, Israeli and Lebanese perspectives, the series traces Mughniyeh’s origins from the Shiite slums of Soth Beirut to his masterminding of the concept of suicide bombers, a deadly tactic that led to his swift rise as the world’s most dangerous terrorist. Based on extensive research of still-classified events, the drama spans decades and weaves in first-hand, real-life interviews with prominent officials from the CIA and Mossad, connecting the turmoil of 1980s Beirut with the spy games of the modern Middle East.
WYNONNA JUDD: BETWEEN HELL AND HALLELUJAH
The documentary drops on July 19th. Wynonna Judd: Between Hell And Hallelujah offers audiences a raw, first-hand glimpse into Wynonna’s life as she bravely embarks on her next chapter following Naomi Judd’s untimely passing. Beginning with the decision to honour her mother’s legacy by continuing on with “The Judds: The Final Tour,” the documentary captures candid on-stage and behind-the-scenes moments as part of the sold-out nationwide tour, along with personal anecdotes from Wynonna’s friends and fellow artists Ashley McBryde, Brandi Carlile, Faith Hill, Little Big Town, Kelsea Ballerini, Martina McBride, and Trisha Yearwood.
The film also includes moving and intimate footage of Wynonna spending quiet, reflective time on the farm with her beloved family and animals as she continues to process her grief.
BIG NATE SEASON 2A
The box set drops on July 8th. It contains 10 episodes of 30 minutes each. Big Nate is a comedy about a sixth-grade kid who has a never-ending need to prove his awesomeness to the world. Whether he’s dealing with disasters at home or detention at school, Nate Wright is no stranger to a challenge. Luckily, he’s able to express himself through the world of cartoons he creates. Charming, mischievous, and a magnet for misadventure-trouble is always fun when Nate is around. Just ask his friends!
