TV's Black Renaissance: Reggie Yates in Hollywood

Revolutionary change is shaking up the TV industry in Hollywood.

A wave of hit shows like Atlanta, Dear White People and Insecure, all with majority African-American casts, are pioneering a new frankness about race and identity.

This film follows Reggie Yates to LA and into this ferociously creative and hugely aspirational new world as he meets leading African-American actors such as Oscar-winner Mahershala Ali (True Detective) and Stranger Things star Caleb Mclaughlin, and writers and showrunners from Lena Waithe (The Chi) to Justin Simien (Dear White People).

Through entertaining encounters with some of the most exciting talent working in the entertainment industry, Reggie tackles the big questions in Trump's America that the work coming out of this black renaissance addresses, and he explores his own experiences of working in front of, and behind, the camera.

Jersey Shore Family Vacation: Mike's Wedding

Cultivating a reputation as the world's most famous party-mates turned the cast members of Jersey Shore into pop culture sensations.

Their stars burned bright until the plug was pulled in 2012, seemingly for good.

This season showcases one seriously unforgettable wedding reception, which includes a magical first dance between Big Daddy Sitch and his new wifey (surrounded by epic amounts of smoke, no less) and an endless variety of sweets (cue all the cannoli and Funfetti).

Sandwiched in between was a series of special moments, many of which came courtesy of a trio of best men — we're lookin' at you, Ronnie, Vinny and Pauly.
