Grass is Greener

Weed. Marijuana. Grass. Pot. Whatever you prefer to call it, America's relationship with cannabis is a complicated one.

In his directorial debut, hip hop pioneer Fab 5 Freddy presents an unparalleled look at the racially biased history of the war on marijuana.

Snoop Dogg, Cypress Hill's B-Real, and Damian Marley join a range of celebrities and experts who discuss the plant's influence on music and popular culture, and the devastating impact its criminalisation has had on black and Latino communities.

As more and more states join the push to legalise marijuana, Grass is Greener dives deep into the glaring racial disparities in the growing cannabis market.

Features interviews with Snoop Dogg, Cypress Hill's B-Real and Sen Dog, DMC, Doug E. Fresh, Chuck D, Damian Marley, Killer Mike and more.

American Nightmare

From weddings to graduations, the best times of our lives normally go hand in hand with our warmest memories; they are moments to cherish for a lifetime.

But as this chilling series reveals, the all-American dream can become an unspeakable nightmare.

Real-life home movies and photos of joyful moments and family events lie in stark contrast to the real crime scene video and 911 calls as they become tragic murder mysteries.

Featuring first-person accounts from detectives investigating the crime, as well as the victims' family and friends, the series peels back the layers of each case to reveal how the horrific events unfolded.

The Real Housewives of New York City 10

This season Bethenny is hyper-focused on her businesses and her humanitarian efforts in Puerto Rico, but burning the candle at both ends leaves little time for a personal life.

Meanwhile, Luann is picking up the pieces after her marriage to Tom fell apart, but when a trip to Palm Beach ends with a night of bad choices, her future is threatened.

On the flip side, Sonja is trying to get her life back on track after a summer of detoxing and distancing herself from the women, but old habits die hard and her feud with Tinsley is alive and well.

In the Season 10 premiere, "Ghouls Just Wanna Have Fun": All the ladies reunite when Dorinda throws an epic Halloween party that nobody will forget.

Experienced car dealer, Mike Brewer, is joined by multi-talented mechanic, Ant Anstead, in a monumental motoring mission: to find and restore iconic cars to later sell for a profit at their LA-based shop.

In the series, Mike has the challenging job of finding vehicles that have money-making potential. He then hands them over to Ant, who tackles everything from bare metal re-sprays to gearbox swaps to bring them back to their former glory.

From the sunny beaches of southern California to the coldest edges of Maine, the series scours the US from coast-to-coast for the best vehicles to buy, restore, test and sell for a tidy profit.

What treasures will the guys find and flip on their epic adventures?
