Christina Milian Turned Up 2

We once again follow the lives of this loud, loving, opinionated and multi-talented Cuban-American family, which includes actress and singer Christina Milian, her mother and manager Carmen, and her two sisters Danielle and Lizzy.

Juggling motherhood, a music career, romance and life in the celebrity spotlight is always crazy, complicated and a ton of fun, and Season 2 will continue to take you inside the world of one of today's most popular stars.

This season, Christina is putting her music career first by taking on an entirely new music team, which causes tension between her and her manager/mother Carmen, and Christina will take us behind the scenes of the making of her new music video for her upcoming single, "Like Me," with rapper Snoop Dogg.

She is also put through the paces when she begins mentoring a music group comprised of young sisters who have a very opinionated "momager."

In addition, the singer-songwriter and co-star of the comedy series Grandfathered opens up about the highs and lows of her personal life.

Meanwhile, a pregnant Danielle and her husband Richard receive the devastating news that their unborn baby has a birth defect called Omphalocele which the two struggle to come to terms with.

Luckily, Danielle has her family by her side to lean on for support during the most difficult journey she's ever had to face.

Lizzy, the youngest of the three sisters, has a new French boyfriend named Dom, a professional soccer player whom she met on Instagram.

Ever the chameleon, she is suddenly devoted to immersing herself into all things French.

However, Lizzy's relationship is tested when Dom must travel back-and-forth from Los Angeles to France as he splits his time between the two cities.

Following the success of his award-winning documentaries on Gangs, Afghanistan, the Middle East and the Amazon, Ross shows how international organised crime, terrorists and local criminal networks have created alliances that are destroying the lives of millions around the world.

This season he'll be meeting criminal biker gangs in Australia, Iraqi and Syrian immigrants in Calais, and exploring South Africa's appalling rape epidemic.

In the Season 4 premiere, "Ukraine": First up it's a not-so-jolly jaunt to Ukraine, to meet some of the ultra-right nationalist militias defending the unstable nation's borders.

Unpalatable views and uncontrolled testosterone are on display as Kemp spends time with football hooligans now fighting pro-Russian separatists, and meets the notorious Azov battalion and other groups near the front line.

In the second episode of the season, "South Africa": Ross heads to South Africa, 20 years after Apartheid was lifted; only to discover that a new set of problems exist, such as a widening gap between rich and poor.

However, as he enters the deprived township of Diepsloot on the outskirts of Johannesburg, he discovers an even bigger crisis.

Rape has reached epidemic proportions in the country, with statistics showing one in two women born in South Africa will be attacked in their lifetime.

Meeting victims and perpetrators, he asks how attitudes to women can change, and what the government can do to curb this abhorrent crime.
