Cesar Millan: Better Human Better Dog

Pet owners across America need help more than ever. Fortunately, there's hope. Cesar Millan is ready to take on his most challenging cases yet.

Cesar is back and he's rehabilitating dogs and training pet parents — empty dog shelters and record adoptions mean America needs him more than ever.

His positivity is a beacon of light in these troubled times; his can-do attitude and his heart-warming transformations make us feel like we can overcome all obstacles... starting with our own four-legged pals.

Cesar's return to television will give new pet parents the tools they need to teach their dogs good habits and shed the old bad habits.

From the yards of the pet owners to his newly updated Dog Psychology Center, Cesar shows us the skills we need to create happy homes with our furry best friends.

My Impossible House

Witness some of Britain's most extreme renovation challenges, with those determined to transform historic buildings into unique living spaces.

The series explores similar territory as it takes us inside the design challenges faced by people working on over-the-top renovation projects to transform unique buildings into dream homes.

There are projects involving old windmills and churches, derelict barns and lighthouses filled with curved walls, oddball angles and ancient features that challenge modern materials and working methods.

And at the end of it all, we'll see the solution the builders arrive at.

In the series premiere, "Colossal Cathedral": In this episode, newlyweds electrician Sean and scrapyard owner Debs, take on the monumental challenge of transforming a Grade Two listed church in Yorkshire.

Built nearly 180 years ago they plan to turn this colossal church into a palatial home big enough to entertain their large extended family.

They have a healthy build budget of £400,000 and paid just £85,000 for the building, which sounds cheap, but this building was never built to be lived in.

The footprint is 450 square metres, and the steeple soars 36 metres into the air - it's so vast they intend to build a three-storey house within it.

Sean takes a two-year leave from work to oversee the build while Debs continues to run her scrap-metal plant to raise extra funds, and in order to keep costs down they move into a caravan on the grounds of the graveyard.

First, they have to make the structure safe, and while doing so discover the building is so unstable it could collapse.

They replace the roof and reinforce the walls before digging new foundations inside the church, only to discover one of the enormous original pillars is sitting on soil so it could collapse at any moment.

Tested to the limit almost daily, Sean and Debs battle through a catalogue of setbacks, desperate to create their dream home and save this historic structure.

The Curse of Skinwalker Ranch 2

HISTORY has full, unprecedented access to one of the most infamous and secretive hotspots of paranormal and UFO-related activities on earth, Skinwalker Ranch.

Few have ever gained official access to Skinwalker Ranch, and none have ever been able to bring cameras onto the property for a television series, until now.

Anchored by never-before-seen footage of the ranch and what it contains, the series features a team of scientists and experts who conduct a thorough search of this infamous 512-acre property located in Utah's Uinta Basin in an attempt to find out the 'who?' 'what?' and 'why?' behind more than 200 years of UFO and paranormal related mysteries.

Utilising the latest in cutting edge technology from lasers and ground penetrating radars to drone thermography, rockets and more, the team will apply hard science and make shocking discoveries while going further and risking more than anyone has done on the ranch before.

In the Season 2 premiere, "Breaking Ground": As the team recommences their monumental search for answers on the notorious 512-acre property, an excavation of a mysterious pit at Homestead Two leads to a frightening encounter.

In Treatment 4

Genre: Drama

In Treatment 4

Ten years after the Season 3 finale, In Treatment returns for its fourth season with Uzo Aduba (Orange Is The New Black) as the observant, empathetic Dr. Brooke Taylor, the therapist at the centre of the season.

The reimagining of the series is set in present-day Los Angeles and brings a diverse trio of patients in session with Brooke to help navigate a variety of modern concerns.

Issues such as the global pandemic and recent major social and cultural shifts are a backdrop to the work Brooke will undertake — all while she deals with complications in her own personal life.

Season 4 also stars Anthony Ramos (Hamilton) as Eladio, who works as a home health aide for a wealthy family's adult son.

Liza Colón-Zayas (David Makes Man) stars as Rita, Brooke's longtime confidante and friend who supports Brooke as she contends with her own demons after a life-altering loss.

John Benjamin Hickey (Jessica Jones) is Colin, a charming millionaire beach bum turned white-collar criminal reckoning with all the ways his life has changed following his recent release from prison.

Quintessa Swindell (Euphoria) stars as Laila, Brooke's distrustful, teenage client, struggling to carve out her own identity separate from her family's overbearing expectations.

Finally, Joel Kinnaman (The Killing) plays Adam, Brooke's long-time on-again, off-again boyfriend who has resurfaced to create further complexity for her.
