Step Up: Season 3 – 16th October
The hit franchise follows the non-stop drama, scandalous romance, betrayals, and rivalries as told through the intersection of the music and dance worlds within a highly coveted performance empire. As the label’s talent roster grows, High Water founder and megastar Sage Odom (Ne-Yo) faces murder charges, financial ruin, and powerful political enemies. His partner in business and love, Collette Jones (Christina Milian), struggles to maintain their empire while carrying a secret that threatens to ruin it all as she balances a nationwide tour and stepping out of her role as the woman behind the man. Caught in the maelstrom is their collective of talented young artists that have been mentored into being top selling rappers and dance superstars: Rigo (Terrence Green), Poppy (Kendra Oyesanya), Tal (Keiynan Lonsdale), Davis (Carlito Olivero), Odalie (Jade Chynoweth) and mysterious newcomer Angel (Rebbi Rosie), who all find that living your dream has a price. Episodes arrive weekly.
The BMF Documentary: Blowing Money Fast – 23rd October
This half-hour episodic documentary series about the infamous Black Mafia Family, as told by former members, insiders, associates, and celebrity figures close to the family. From Detroit corner boys, to notorious drug kingpins, and hip hop kingmakers, the eight-part docuseries will chart the meteoric rise and fall of BMF founders: Demetrius “Big Meech” and Terry “Southwest T” Flenory, two brothers who built one of the largest cocaine empires in American history. The fabled story spans four decades across five major U.S. cities, immersing viewers in a network of crisscrossing relationships between crime, hip hop, and law enforcement.
