Hunting ISIS

Channel: HISTORY (DStv 186)
TX Time: 21h10
Genre: Documentary Series, Factual

A character-driven documentary series about independent fighters from the west joining the fight against ISIS in Syria and Iraq.

The series follows the characters' interwoven journeys as the war against ISIS advances from 2015 through the Mosul Offensive in 2016 and the actual progression of the war and events unfolding on the ground.

These volunteers have many reasons for joining the fight. Some are military veterans craving the familiar adrenaline rush and brotherhood of combat, who shoulder a sense of unfinished business in the Middle East. Some are civilians eager to test their mettle while searching for a greater purpose.

Stories include vivacious single-mom Dana, who is busy juggling a boyfriend, a resentful ex-husband, and a secret lover, but her life is cut short by someone close.

Plus, Susan Smith, who becomes an FBI informant to protect her kids from her jealous husband's criminal friend, but her desire to do the right thing, brings hellish consequences.

Genre: Comedy

Josh Segal and Associates get their first case, defending Lavinia Peck-Foster, the eccentric First Lady of East Peck, who was found with her husband Edgar's corpse in a suitcase in her trunk.

Lavinia is surly, entitled, larger than life and, instead of hugs, her currency of connection is a face slap. On the other hand, she is wealthy so she can pay him.

Winning this case could be Josh's ticket for his true goal, to be considered a "Pecker." Unfortunately, complications and bodies keep piling up and there are more questions than answers.
