I am the Night
Inspired by true events, I Am the Night tells the gripping story of Fauna Hodel (India Eisley), a teenage girl who is given away at birth, and grows up outside of Reno, Nevada. Fauna lives more-or-less comfortably with the mysteries of her origin, until one day she makes a discovery that leads her to question everything. As Fauna begins to investigate the secrets of her past, she meets a ruined reporter (Chris Pine), haunted by the case that undid him. Together they follow a sinister trail that swirls ever closer to an infamous Los Angeles gynecologist, Dr. George Hodel (Jefferson Mays), a man involved in some of Hollywood’s darkest debauchery, and possibly, its most infamous unsolved crime.

Miracle Workers
Based on Simon Rich’s book, What in God’s Name, this seven-episode limited series turns the perception of heaven on its head while also making the case that humans are worth saving. Daniel Radcliffe and Steve Buscemi executive produce and star alongside Karan Soni (Deadpool) and Geraldine Viswanathan (Blockers). Radcliffe plays Craig, a low-level angel responsible for handling all of humanity’s prayers. Buscemi plays Craig’s boss, God, who has pretty much checked out to focus on petty hobbies. To prevent Earth’s destruction, Craig and fellow angel Eliza (Viswanathan) must answer a seemingly impossible prayer: help two humans, Laura and Sam (played by Sasha Compere and Jon Bass), fall in love. (TBS)

Summer Camp Island
Welcome to Summer Camp Island, Cartoon Network’s newest animated series created by Julia Pott. Based on the critically acclaimed short screened at Sundance Film Festival, Tribeca Film Festival and SXSW, and developed in Cartoon Network Studios’ global Artists Program, the new series follows best friends Oscar and Hedgehog as they discover their first sleepaway camp isn’t quite what it seems. Come along and explore a magical island filled with creatures of all kinds, including unicorns, yetis and aliens – just be careful to steer clear of the grumpy camp counselors, who happen to be witches.
