How to Create a Sex Scandal

In 2005, the sleepy community of Mineola, Texas, is thrown into turmoil when local children reveal shocking stories about a paedophile sex ring that took place at a local swingers club.

As arrests are made, life sentences handed down, and lives ruined, it soon becomes apparent that there is a lot more to the story than meets the eye.

Life Below Zero 11

When bears, wolves and foxes are your only neighbours, life can be pretty lonely.

Add minus-60-degree days and a constant battle for the most basic necessities, and you have the daily challenges of people who live in remote corners of Alaska.

This series takes you deep into an Alaskan winter to meet tough, resilient residents as they try to stay one step ahead of storms and man-eating beasts to survive the season.

The closest neighbour to Sue Aikens is more than 300 miles away and Eric Salitan subsists solely on what he hunts and forages.

Chip and Agnes Hailstone catch fish for currency in bartering for supplies, and Andy and Kate Bassich use their pack of sled dogs for transportation.

Also highlighted is a time of year not always part of what you see in Alaska: spring.

Ice is breaking, animals are waking, and residents face new tests before deep cold returns.

In the Season 11 premiere, "Pulled from the Darkness": Alaskans enter a new dawn in the Arctic winter.

Genre: Reality

Expedition Bigfoot 3

A year after devastating wildfires forced the team to evacuate the Olympic Peninsula, just as they unearthed fascinating new evidence, primatologist Dr. Mireya Mayor and Bigfoot experts Bryce Johnson, Ronny LeBlanc and Russell Acord return to Washington State in Season 3 of Expedition Bigfoot.

Knowing of her interest in cryptid animals, especially hominids, Dr. Mireya Mayor, Expedition Bigfoot resident scientist, contacted her longtime friend and colleague, Dr. Goodall, to discuss her beliefs and personal investigations.

During the on-camera interview, Goodall revealed that she has been told many unexplained stories of human-like primates from native people living in the jungles of South America and does not discount them.

In fact, Dr Goodall believes these could be highly intelligent creatures, which would explain why no remains have been found to date, and embraces the team continuing the search.

Encouraged by a notable discovery from the previous expedition, the team devises a new plan to rouse a Bigfoot from hiding and prove these elusive creatures are not a myth but a reality.

In the Season 3 premiere, "Strange Returns": The team returns to the Olympic Peninsula with a new plan to draw out Bigfoot by releasing primate pheromones via a specially modified drone.

But after LeBlanc and Mayor see something watching them from above, and Accord is blindsided by a nighttime visitor, it becomes clear - the hunters are now the hunted.

Friendly face Charisse Jackson Jordan (Seasons 1 and 2) returns as a friend of the cast, along with new friend Jacqueline Blake.

Coming up this season:

Gizelle Bryant is inching closer to becoming an empty nester, but it's bittersweet.

Her oldest, Grace, received her driver's license and is ready to hit the road, while twins Adore and Angel are turning 16 and will be leaving the west wing soon.

Gizelle is also "in these streets" dating and rekindling a romance with someone from her past but finds herself entangled in drama involving another housewife's husband.

Karen Huger is looking and feeling better than ever with some "tweaks."

Her choices have left Ray questioning the motives behind her refresh.

He worries the vanity procedures could have a negative impact on their daughter, Rayvin.

Ashley Darby recently separated from Michael, and her main focus is motherhood with a little TikTok on the side.

She's looking for a new home for herself and her boys, but with Michael's help, which makes the women question if she wants to be free of him.

Robyn Dixon and Juan are finally engaged and everyone is expecting a wedding any day now... everyone but the Dixons, who have mastered the art of procrastination.

While getting married is not a top priority for Robyn, getting a prenup is since she is now the primary breadwinner in the family.

Candiace Dillard-Bassett is busier than ever with a music career, but if she wants babies in the future, she has to act now.

She has begun the journey with freezing her eggs, but along the way there are a few hiccups.

Chris has taken a new job that is taking up a lot of his time, and an allegation from some of the women makes waves in their marriage.

Wendy Osefo continues to teach, serve as a political analyst on national cable news and run her candle business.

She now wants to open a Nigerian-themed lounge but Eddie thinks she has too much going on and needs to focus on her health and her family.

Can she juggle it all and maintain her sanity?

Mia Thornton implies on social media she has cancer and then reveals she needs further testing to determine if she has cancer.

The back and forth has the ladies questioning what is true.

Former housewife Charrisse Jackson Jordan returns as a friend and voice of reason that most of the ladies welcome except for Karen, who mysteriously goes out of her way to avoid her.

Jacqueline Blake joins as a friend.

She and Mia are so close that one might think they are sisters, but some unusual behaviour has the ladies wondering what the real story is.

In the Season 7 premiere, "Spring Awakening": Spring has sprung in Potomac, and the gossip is in full bloom.

The word on the street is that the Darbys are divorcing, but Ashley's story doesn't quite add up.

Wendy explores a new venture with Peter Thomas and Mia's murky social media behaviour leaves the ladies wondering about the real status of her health.

Karen hosts a "Spring Fling Celebration of Life" extravaganza, but it's cut short when some of the ladies are confronted on their alleged lies.

In the second episode of the weekly double bill, "Allegation Nation": Karen's spring fling concludes with a whole lot of drama.

Mia battles more than just a health scare when the ladies make a jarring allegation.
