Flip It Like Disick

E! is moving into the neighbourhood of real estate and luxury renovation with Flip It like Disick, which goes inside the lavish personal and professional world of Kardashian baby-daddy and annoying hanger-on Scott Disick, as he tackles his most extravagant endeavour yet: high-end home flipping and remodeling.

Fueled by Disick's passion for property development, which began almost five years ago when he successfully flipped his first investment, this series follows him and his team.

The team includes former pop singer-turned-interior designer Willa Ford; Disick's best friend Benny Luciano; their all-star short-tempered contractor Miki Moor; Benny's wife and realtor Kozet Luciano; and Disick's assistant Lindsay Diamond.

Led by Disick, the group will convert unique home projects for his celebrity friends and family, including guestrooms, studios and his kids' playhouse at their mother Kourtney's home, as well as transform an ambitious multi-million dollar property in Los Angeles.

Extraordinary Women

This series, featuring archive interviews and dramatic re-enactments, gives access into the lives of some of the most extraordinary women of our time.

In a remarkable life that touched three centuries, Madame Chiang Kai-Shek rose to become one of the most powerful women in the world.

She positioned herself at the forefront of Chinese politics and held extraordinary influence in world affairs for a woman of her time.

In one of the most turbulent times in China's history, Madame Chiang Kai-Shek had spoken for millions of her people at home and across the world. She was the greatest leader China never had.

Austrian-born Hedy Lamarr, with her femme fatale looks, was known as the most beautiful woman in film. She was also one of the most controversial, launching her film career by performing cinema's very first nude scenes.

Yet, one aspect of her life remained largely a secret. Hedy Lamarr was an inventor. She created a secret communication system designed to allow allied submarines to guide torpedoes more accurately toward their enemy targets.

Her invention was developed to form the basis of all our wireless communications today. Laptops and mobile phones can send texts and surf the internet thanks to an invention of Hedy Lamarr's.

Martha Gellhorn became a war correspondent almost by accident when her lover, Ernest Hemingway, urged her to file a report from Madrid during the Spanish Civil War.

She wrote about the innocent victims of the war: the civilians who lived in daily fear of being killed by bombs. It was the beginning of a remarkable career spanning some sixty years.

Committed to reporting the truth, she worked hard for her reputation as one of the greatest war correspondents of the twentieth century.

The Story of the Royals

This miniseries explores the British Royal Family, jumping back to the early decades of the twentieth century.

The series explores pivotal moments in the crown's history to find illuminating echoes of our present - the arrival of a new generation of baby Royals, and the marriages that have captured public interest.

It also unpacks the mystique and history of the monarchy as it draws international interest with a new royal baby and the introduction of Meghan Markle, the first American to marry into the British royal family since Wallis Simpson in 1937.

Back in the present, join this year's Royal Wedding spectators, ranging from devoted royal watchers, to communities around the world that will soon see a more radically relatable royal image.
