THE WHITE LOTUS S1 | Binge now, first on Showmax
10 Emmys from 20 nominations: Outstanding Limited or Anthology Series, Directing, Writing, Supporting Actor (Murray Bartlett), Supporting Actress (Jennifer Coolidge), Editing, Casting, Original Dramatic Score, Original Main Title Theme Music, and Sound Mixing
The most awarded series overall at the 2022 Emmys, The White Lotus is set at an exclusive Hawaiian resort over one highly transformative week, gradually peeling back the glossy veneer of picture-perfect travellers, cheerful hotel employees, and the idyllic locale itself to reveal something far uglier beneath.​
HBO’s six-part series won 10 of its 20 nominations, including Outstanding Limited or Anthology Series, Directing, Writing, Editing, Casting, Original Dramatic Score, Original Main Title Theme Music, and Sound Mixing.
Jennifer Coolidge, as the grieving guest, Tanya, and Murray Bartlett, as hotel manager Armond, won their first Emmys in the Supporting Actress and Actor category respectively, holding off strong competition from their nominated co-stars: five-time nominee Connie Britton (NashvilleFriday Night LightsAmerican Horror Story) and first-time acting nominees Alexandra Daddario, Jake Lacy, Natasha Rothwell, Steve Zahn, and Sydney Sweeney (who was also nominated in the Drama category for her role as Cassie in Euphoria).
Season 2 premieres first on Showmax on 31 October 2022, leaving Hawaii behind to follow a different group of vacationers as they jet to another White Lotus property and settle in temporarily among its inhabitants.

BARRY S3 | Binge now, first on Showmax
3 Emmys from 14 nominations: Outstanding Stunt Coordination, Picture Editing and Sound Editing 
 
Picking up six months after the Season 2 finale, in the aftermath of the monastery shootout, HBO’s hitman in Hollywood comedy starts with Sally filming her own show, NoHo Hank in love, and our favourite hitman, Barry, without an acting class to go to anymore.
Season 3 of Barry won three Emmys from 14 nominations: Outstanding Stunt Coordination, Picture Editing, and Sound Editing. Spare a thought for co-creator Bill Hader, who lost all five of the Emmy categories he was nominated for: Outstanding Comedy, Leading Actor, Directing, Writing and Guest Actor (for his cameo on Curb Your Enthusiasm S11).
S3 of Barry has a 100% critics’ rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with The Daily Beast calling it, “the best show on TV”; Variety hailing it as “a masterpiece … funnier and sharper than ever… TV’s most fascinating protagonist”; and Entertainment Weekly writing, “I’ve never seen violence like the violence on Barry. HBO’s hitman comedy is a legitimate thrillfest, and the new season has three of the best action scenes I’ve ever seen.”

A BLACK LADY SKETCH SHOW S3 | Binge now
2 Emmys from five nominations: Outstanding Directing for A Variety Series and Picture Editing
A Black Lady Sketch Show won Outstanding Directing for A Variety Series and Picture Editing after being nominated for five Emmys, including Outstanding Variety Sketch Series.
The HBO sketch comedy also earned series creator Robin Thede an Outstanding Actress: Comedy nomination at the 2022 Black Reel Awards, where Quinta Brunson (Abbott Elementary) was also nominated as Guest Actress. Thede won the category in 2021, when A Black Lady Sketch Show’s Gabrielle Dennis won Supporting Actress over co-star Ashley Nicole Black. This season’s guest stars include Ava DuVernay, Wanda Sykes, Wayne Brady, Vanessa Williams, Lance Reddick and Phil LaMarr.
Already renewed for a fourth season, A Black Lady Sketch Show has a 100% critics’ rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with The Root hailing this season as “the smartest, freshest, funniest comedy on TV.”

GEORGE CARLIN’S AMERICAN DREAM | Binge now
1 Emmy from five nominations: Outstanding Documentary or Non-Fiction Special
Directed by Judd Apatow and Michael Bonfiglio, the two-part HBO documentary George Carlin’s American Dream was named Outstanding Documentary or Non-Fiction Special at this year’s Emmys.
Described by Stephen Colbert as “the Beatles of comedy”, Carlin’s fearless countercultural comedy spanned five decades, including 14 HBO comedy specials and more than 130 appearances on The Tonight Show, until his death in 2008. The documentary chronicles the life and work of the legendary comedian, a cultural chameleon who is remembered as one of the most influential stand-up comics of all time.
The documentary opens an intimate window into Carlin’s personal life, and includes both material from his stand-up specials and footage from his personal archive, as well as interviews with George Carlin’s family, friends, and the people he inspired – legends like Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld, Patton Oswalt, Bette Midler, W. Kamau Bell, and Jon Stewart.
George Carlin’s American Dream holds a 100% critics’ rating on Rotten Tomatoes, where the critics’ consensus calls it a “revealing retrospective on the beloved comedian’s career that ought to be mandatory viewing for standup fans.”

THE GILDED AGE S1 | Binge now
1 Emmy from 1 nomination: Outstanding Production Design
Winner of a 2022 Emmy for its production design, The Gilded Age is a new period drama from Oscar winner Julian Fellowes (Downton AbbeyGosford Park).
The Gilded Age kicks off in 1882, when young Marian Brook (Louisa Jacobson) moves from rural Pennsylvania to New York City after the death of her father. She moves in with her thoroughly old-money aunts Agnes van Rhijn (Christine Baranski from The Good Fight) and Ada Brook (Cynthia Nixon from Sex and the City).
Accompanied by Peggy Scott (Denée Benton), an aspiring writer seeking a fresh start, Marian is soon caught up in a social war between one of her aunts and her stupendously rich new-money neighbours, a ruthless railroad tycoon George Russell (Morgan Spector from The Plot Against America and Homeland) and his ambitious wife, Bertha (Carrie Coon from Fargo). Exposed to a world on the brink of the modern age, will Marian follow the established rules of society, or forge her own path?
HBO has already ordered a second season of The Gilded Age, which has an 8/10 rating on IMDb. As Glamour says, “The Gilded Age is like Downton Abbey – but better.”

WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS S3 | Binge now, first on Showmax
1 Emmy from seven nominations: Outstanding Fantasy/Sci-Fi Costumes
Based on the 2014 cult movie from the batty brains of nine-time Emmy nominee Jemaine Clement (Flight Of The Conchords) and Oscar winner Taika Waititi (Jojo RabbitThor: Ragnarok), What We Do in the Shadows follows four vampires who’ve “lived” together for hundreds of years – plenty of time to get on each other’s nerves.
Season 3 of What We Do In The Shadows won Outstanding Fantasy/Sci-fi Costumes after being up for seven Emmys, including Outstanding Comedy.
As Decider says, “FX’s mockumentary series featuring the world’s dumbest vampires, What We Do In the Shadows, has been one of the best comedies on TV since it premiered in 2019. But Season 3 felt like the show’s breakout year, in part because of the internet’s affinity for the brilliant slow-burn relationship between Nandor the Relentless (Kayvan Novak)—formerly a bloodthirsty leader, now a somewhat reluctant vampire going through a midlife crisis—and his human familiar, Guillermo de la Cruz (Harvey Guillén), formerly a soft-spoken servant, now a badass vampire slayer. It’s a season full of priceless, quotable moments.”

Other winners that will make their way to Showmax include:
• Hacks S2, which won three Comedy Emmys from its 17 nominations: Outstanding Lead Actress (Jean Smart), Guest Actress (Laurie Metcalfe), and Contemporary Costumes.

Showmax confirms The Real Housewives of Nairobi, slated to begin production in September

Published

output.auto 4
African streaming service Showmax, in partnership with NBCUniversal Formats, is bringing The Real Housewives to Nairobi.
The Real Housewives of Nairobi, which will debut in 2023 as a Showmax Original, is the 22nd international version of The Real Housewives format and the sixth to be adapted in Africa.
The Real Housewives of Nairobi builds on the success of other African franchises like The Real Housewives of Johannesburg, which was one of the 10 most streamed domestic series on Showmax in 2019, as well as Durban (RHOD) and Lagos (RHOLagos), which both broke records on Showmax and were trending #1 on Twitter in their respective countries.
Denise Mwende, Showmax Content Specialist in East Africa, said: “As an African streaming platform, Showmax is dedicated to telling diverse African stories, and celebrity reality TV remains a genre that excites our viewers across Africa. We love to watch other people’s lives, and The Real Housewives of Nairobi is a chance to get a much closer look at Nairobi’s elite.”
The Real Housewives of Nairobi is being produced by Eugene Mbugua’s D&R Studios (formerly Young Rich Television), the production company behind Kenya’s biggest docu-reality shows and Showmax favourites like the 2021 Kalasha nominee Sol Family; the 2021 Kalasha nominee and 2022 Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice (AMVCA) nominee This Love; 2022 reality series Kyallo Kulture; 2018 Kalasha nominee Stori Yangu and 2019 Kalasha winner Our Perfect Wedding.
“The team at D&R Studios is very stoked about the opportunity to produce The Real Housewives of Nairobi,” said Mbugua. “We’ve had a long and good relationship with Showmax, and are very excited to now be working together on an international format. We’ve gone through a very rigorous process of being shortlisted and are now geared up and ready to start production.”
“D&R Studios already has a portfolio of celebrity reality content like Sol Family, This Love and Kyallo Kulture under their belt. They understand the structure, and are willing to work hand in hand with our local teams and NBCUniversal to bring the Nairobi franchise to life,” added Denise Mwende.
On what the audience can expect with Nairobi, following the success of other African franchises, Mbugua said, “There’s quite a bit of pressure from the audience to deliver a stellar show but if what we’ve seen in the casting process is anything to go by, Nairobi promises to hold its own. Fans can expect surprises in everything, from the choice of the cast to the storylines. The Real Housewives of Nairobi is going to be the show to watch.”
As you wait for The Real Housewives of Nairobi, you can binge-watch these African franchises on Showmax: The Real Housewives of Lagos, The Real Housewives of Durban S1-2 and The Real Housewives of Johannesburg S1-2.

Al Jazeera English is proud to announce its end of year slate of new international documentaries

Published

on

El ARENA Lebanon 11

Al Jazeera English (AJE) is home to some of the best, most diverse and unique documentaries from around the globe. The Internationally aclaimed  broadcaster showcases a wide range of stories, storytellers, perspectives and genres, in films which offer insight, understanding, information and empathy, to complement its global news. AJE airs over 300 documentaries a year, in regular strands and stand-alone slots.

AJE’s latest slate premieres several themed series as well as powerful single documentaries. In ‘Bollywood Dreams’ audiences  follow some of the thousands of ‘strugglers’ across India, who pin their futures and hopes on Bollywood. In the USA, Colombia, Finland and Australia’s Torres Strait Islands we observe First Nation communities reclaim their heritage, combat environmental disaster and fight to sustain their lives and livelihoods. The award-winning ‘Africa Direct’ returns for a second series, with African filmmakers telling African stories in immersive, first-person short docs. AJE’s flagship strand Witness premieres several new films including from Ukraine, India, Iraq, Armenia, South Sudan, Algeria, Spain and Lebanon.

Beyond the premieres, AJE will show some outstanding environmental and football films again in November and December. Witness Australia’s bushfires up close, and experience the permafrost during COP. And while the world is glued to football fields, AJE goes off the pitch to understand six football clubs in the popular series ‘The Fans Who Make Football’.

AJE’s Documentaries unit accounts for around a quarter of the Channel’s total output. From immersive, character-led stories to issue-led exposures, the films prioritise the human lived experiences behind news stories. They aim to challenge prevailing narratives about people, places and power by elevating seldom-heard voices and featuring people telling their own stories.Its documentaries present a range of experiences, lives and views to help viewers think, understand, feel and connect with the world around them.

Our award-winning documentaries provide great range, depth and nuance to our daily news coverage,” said Giles Trendle, Managing Director of Al Jazeera English, “and we are lucky to have a talented and diverse team which works with a wide array of filmmakers from around the world.”

Ingrid Falk, Manager of Programmes said  “Stories are hugely important in shaping our understanding of the world, so we in the Documentaries unit focus as much on how we tell stories, and who tells them, as the subject matter itself. We try to shift the power of the storytelling itself towards those who have experience the events – we have the space to move away from presenters and reporters as authoritative voices towards first person narratives. Our philosophy is that when we see and hear from people directly, confidently, centred in their own stories, only then can we reimagine notions of authority and power. And in this very unequal world, that is an important thing to do.”
