Narcos: Mexico 2

As friction between the different "plazas" of his cartel rises, Felix's control over the situation slips.

Meanwhile, the death of DEA agent Kiki Camarena at the hands of the cartel and corrupt politicians brings a hailstorm of retribution to Mexico.

Hightown 2

Set in beautiful but bleak Cape Cod, Hightown follows one woman's journey to sobriety, overshadowed by an unfolding murder investigation.

Hightown is a crime drama set amid the drug trade on Cape Cod, touched off when a body washes ashore and discovered by an irreverent National Marine Fisheries Service officer who is determined to help solve the murder even if the state cops want her nowhere near the case.

In the second season, the picture-perfect version of summer on Cape Cod clashes with its off-season reality.

Jackie Quinones (Monica Raymund) achieving her dream of becoming a real cop, is out to do some good in this world.

Thrust immediately into the crime wave of deadly carfentanyl flooding the Cape, Jackie is laser-focused on bringing down drug dealer Frankie Cuevas (Amaury Nolasco), the man Jackie holds responsible for the death of her best friend, Junior.

For Jackie, it is personal but then again, for Jackie, everything is personal.

When Frankie's cousin Jorge (Luis Guzmán) joins his operation, he introduces a new level of violence and chaos.

With disgraced officer Ray Abruzzo (James Badge Dale) off the force and mired in depression, Jackie finds a new partner in Leslie, the only other female on the force.

Through it all, Jackie must walk the tightrope of sobriety as she struggles to stay above an ocean of secrets, betrayal and the shame and failure of her past.

In the Season 2 premiere, "Great White": Jackie is white-hot to prove herself as a cop and avenge the death of her best friend, Junior.

Frankie teams up with his cousin while Ray's off the force because of Renee.

There's a new deadly drug in town, "Great White."

Iron Chef Gauntlet

Channel: Real Time (DStv 155)
TX Time: 11h15
Genre: Reality Competition, Food

Iron Chef Gauntlet

The elite culinary skill, strategy and stamina of Iron Chef America returns with Iron Chef Gauntlet, a fresh reboot of the franchise hosted by Alton Brown.

The six-episode first season begins with seven extraordinary chefs competing for the chance to become an Iron Chef - each week one will rise and one will fall until a single chef is left standing.

But in order to gain entry into this ultimate culinary society, one gladiator must win the Gauntlet - three rapid-succession battles, each against one legendary Iron Chef: Bobby Flay, Masaharu Morimoto or Michael Symon.

In the first five Iron Chef Gauntlet episodes, the competitors endure two grueling rounds of cooking starting with the Chairman's Challenge where host Alton Brown delivers a themed challenge and is the sole decision maker on the most and least successful chef.

The winner then selects a competitor to join the bottom chef in the Secret Ingredient Challenge, where they must cook three dishes featuring the secret ingredient presented on the altar.

A panel of rotating judges send the least successful chef home each week, while the winner is sent back to battle.

Only if the finalist receives more points than the Iron Chefs combined will history be made, joining the coveted ranks of Iron Chefs, otherwise they will leave the kitchen in utter defeat.

In the series premiere, "Into the Wild": Alton welcomes the seven chefs and presents the first Chairman's Challenge ingredients: an array of wild ingredients.

The chefs must use their expert technique to make a top-tier dish right out of the gate.

Alton determines the most and least successful dishes, and the bottom-rated chef is thrown into the deep end for a Secret Ingredient Showdown against a competitor chosen by the winner.

Three culinary interpretations of the secret ingredient are presented from both chefs to judges Donatella Arpaia and Iron Chef Geoffrey Zakarian and one competitor is sent home.

Evil Lives Here: Shadows of Death 2

Evil casts a shadow, one that spreads outward for years, even decades, after a crime.

This chilling series reveals how the impact of a crime changes people, and what follows that life-changing event.

Anchored by intimate interviews, this series explores how a crime forever alters the lives of those involved.

From the detective investigating a stack of cold cases in Maryland who uncovers a shocking and gruesome common thread, to the police officer shot dead on duty in front of his 12-year-old nephew, each case leaves a mark on those left behind.

Now, loved ones, witnesses, and law enforcement - many telling their stories for the first time ever - reflect on how the past continues to haunt the present.

In the Season 2 premiere, "The Girl in the Photo": In 1995, a beloved mother is found raped and murdered in the accounting office where she works.

The bloody body of her young daughter is nearby.

But as police photograph the scene, they get the shock of their careers.

In the series premiere, "The Cousins' War": British monarch Queen Victoria attempts to create peace in Europe through royal marriages.

But when three cousins linked by Victoria's royal blood turn against each other, and plunge Europe into the First World War, her dream of peace turns into a nightmare.
