Tonight is the series premiere of Life After Lockup on WE at 9/8c. During the explosive second season fans wildly tweeted at each Love After Lockup misstep: did our cast heed the advice to run from their shaky relationships, or do they remain blissfully in love? WE tv heard the fans and delivered the spin-off, Life After Lockup. The new series follows five returning couples who fans have grown to know and love — or love to hate — as they face parole restrictions, temptation, and turbulence in their lives outside of prison walls. Will these troubled lovebirds break old habits with the support of their loved ones? Or will they break the rules and land back in the clink? Throughout the eight episodes, fan-favorites Clint and Tracie; Marcelino and Brittany; Megan, Michael, and Sarah; Scott and Lizzie; and Andrea and Lamar will face new challenges and tackle many firsts in their new lives, from raising children to buying first homes to finding work and staying sober. These committed couples are doing it all while living under the restrictions of parole and dealing with the stresses and occasional turmoil of a new relationship. Now that these former inmates have left prison, will they be able to survive the real world and stay out of prison for good?
Tonight is also the series premiere of Jett on Cinemax at 10/9c. Fresh out of prison, retired professional thief Daisy (aka “Jett”) Kowalski is reluctantly drawn back into doing what she does best after being forced to quit following the birth of her child. Narrowly completing a dangerous “final” job, she finds herself pulled back into a series of assignments masterminded by ruthless criminals, who are determined to exploit her skills for their own ends. Carla Gugino (San Andreas, Sin City) executive produces and stars in the title role. The series also stars Giancarlo Esposito (Better Call Saul, Breaking Bad) as powerful crime lord Charlie Baudelaire, who offers Jett one last task in Cuba, reuniting her with a former flame, but setting off a chain of unexpected events that endangers everyone she cares for, as well as Elena Anaya, Gaite Jansen, Chris Backus, Gentry White, Gil Bellows, Jodie Turner-Smith, Lucy Walters, Michael Aronov, Mustafa Shakir, & Violet McGraw.
Tonight is also the series premiere of Savage Builds on Discovery Channel at 10/9c. Putting his unending curiosity and nearly unparalleled inventiveness to the test, Adam Savage is taking on bigger and badder builds. From a 3-D printed titanium suit of armor inspired by Marvel Studios’ Iron Man films that actually flies to experimenting with the highly volatile liquid nitroglycerin, Savage Builds will propel Adam into explosive and unpredictable worlds with high stakes payoffs. Each episode will focus on one project as Adam collaborates with notable experts in their fields, friends, colleagues, and some of his favorite people on the planet. Among those Adam enlists to help sow controlled mayhem are Academy Award-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson, longtime MythBusters collaborator Tory Belleci, and Academy Award-winning actor Gary Oldman. Nothing is guaranteed of course when venturing into the unknown, but whether a build is a success or failure, the results are sure to thrill.
