"WHILE HBO AND AMC TEND TO GET ALL THE GOLDEN AGE OF TV GLORY, IT MIGHT BE TIME TO START INCLUDING SUNDANCE IN THE MIX."
THE APPROVAL MATRIX
COMING IN AUGUST - SundanceTV presents its new original series THE APPROVAL MATRIX, hosted by comedian Neal Brennan — co-creator of Chappelle’s Show and recurring director for Inside Amy Schumer. Inspired by New York Magazine’s pop culture roundup, THE APPROVAL MATRIX is a funny, provocative talk show about our current cultural obsession. For six weekly episodes, Brennan and a panel of insiders/celebrities/critics will hilariously debate today’s most controversial entertainment/news items. Executive produced by Rory Albanese (The Daily Show) and Ish Entertainment’s Michael Hirschorn (Best Week Ever).
The Honorable Woman
COMING 2014 - THE HONORABLE WOMAN is a fast-paced thriller set against an international political backdrop. With his distinctively rhythmic style, writer-director Hugo Blick (The Shadow Line) creates a compelling drama about family inheritance, international business and world politics. Nessa Stein's (Maggie Gyllenhaal) father was a Zionist arms procurer; as a child, she and her brother witness his assassination. After inheriting her father's company as an adult, she inverts its purpose from supplying arms to laying high-spec data cabling networks between Israel and the West Bank. Now in her thirties, she finds her tireless promotion of projects for reconciliation between the Israelis and Palestinians creates an international political maelstrom.
Dream School - Season 2
COMING FALL 2014 - Multi-platinum award-winning musician and entrepreneur Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson will executive produce along with one of hip-hop's most influential and positive voices Chuck D. The series format was created by campaigning chef and global food entrepreneur Jamie Oliver who will also executive produce under his Fresh One shingle. DREAM SCHOOL is an ambitious project where the best and the brightest in our culture teach kids that have been falling through the cracks.
