The Clark Sisters: First Ladies of Gospel

From executive producers Queen Latifah, Mary J. Blige and Missy Elliott, this is the authorised musical of incomparable gospel singers The Clark Sisters.

It tells the story of the highest selling female gospel group in history and their trailblazing mother, Mattie Moss Clark (Aunjanue Ellis).

Credited with bringing Gospel music to the mainstream, the five Clark sisters - Twinkie, Karen, Dorinda, Denise and Jacky - overcame humble beginnings in Detroit.

They endured abuse, loss, rejection, betrayal and sibling rivalries to achieve international fame as icons of the Gospel music industry.

Grammy-winner, songwriter and gospel record producer and artist Donald Lawrence produced all the re-recorded Clark Sister hits for the movie.

Cesar Millan: Love My Pit Bull

TX Time: 18h00
Genre: Reality, Special

Cesar Millan: Love My Pit Bull

For Cesar Millan, pit bulls - and other dogs classified among the so-called "bully breeds" - aren't bullies at all.

If anything, Cesar's years with his former costar and best pal, Daddy, taught the internationally acclaimed dog expert that pit bulls are not the aggressive monsters that their detractors claim they are.

In fact, they are highly intelligent and, with proper training, can be loyal and loving companions.
