Hollywood

What if you could rewrite the story?

A new limited series from Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan, Hollywood follows a group of aspiring actors and filmmakers in post-World War II Hollywood as they try to make it in Tinseltown — no matter the cost.

Each character offers a unique glimpse behind the gilded curtain of Hollywood's Golden Age, spotlighting the unfair systems and biases across race, gender and sexuality that continue to this day.

Provocative and incisive, Hollywood exposes and examines decades-old power dynamics, and what the entertainment landscape might look like if they had been dismantled.
 

Little Giants

Channel: Real Time (DStv 155)
TX Time: 13h30
Genre: Wildlife

Little Giants

When it comes to power and strength in the animal world, size doesn't always matter.

The most powerful and awe-inspiring creatures are the elusive micro-monsters that exist just beneath our feet.

They rule their environments with an array of supernatural weapons, from shape shifting their bodies to shooting toxic blood from their eyes.

In this series, animal expert Bradley Trevor Grieve and bioengineer Billy Almon venture to some of the most remote and inhospitable habitats on Earth to track down and capture these tiny beasts.

Using high tech equipment, they measure these creatures' abilities and use CGI to see if they could compete with the most formidable predators on the planet.

They then flip the rules of the natural world by imagining just how powerful these little giants could be if they were supersized and let loose in our world.

It's an action-packed search for the toughest pint-sized creatures in their natural habitats.
