Other notables in the series include activist Al Sharpton, former U.S. Representative Charles Rangel and poet Sonia Sanchez. Through archival footage and evocative imagery, audiences will see beyond the black and white historical images into the multicolored souls of musicians unafraid to use music as a weapon against change.

Overnight was the complete first season premiere of The South Westerlies on Acorn TV. When a small coastal town in the south-west of Ireland is earmarked for a Norwegian-owned wind farm, it’s not just the spectacular scenery that’s under pressure. For a single working mother, tasked with going undercover to bring the project home, her eco-battle is compounded by the return of a crinkly-eyed surfer with an unmistakable resemblance to her teenage son. This comic drama filming on location in Ireland features a rich cast including Orla Brady (American Horror Story, Mistresses), Eileen Walsh (Catastrophe, Women on the Verge), and Patrick Bergin (Red Rock, Patriot Games).

Starring Myha’la Herrold (The Tattooed Heart), Marisa Abela (Cobra), Harry Lawtey (City of Tiny Lights), David Jonsson (Deep State), and Nabhaan Rizwan (Mogul Mowgli) as “The Graduates,” and Conor MacNeill (Artemis Fowl), Freya Mavor (Skins), Will Tudor (Game of Thrones), and Ken Leung (High Maintenance) as “Management,” Industry gives an insider’s view of the blackbox of “high finance” through the eyes of an outsider, Harper Stern (Myha’la Herrold), a talented young woman from upstate New York. Through the eyes of these young grads fueled by ambition, romance and drugs, the show examines issues of gender, race, and class in the workplace as the impressionable new employees begin to forge an identity within the pressure cooker environment of Pierpoint & Co.’s trading floor.

Overnight was the premiere of the first two episodes of Valley of Tears on HBO Max. This is a harrowing, ten-episode limited drama series inspired by the true events of the 1973 Yom Kippur War in Israel. Leading up to the ultimate battle, the series follows young combatants thrust into a war that was later revealed could have been avoided by leaders they blindly trusted. Valley of Tears focuses on the universality of heroism and sacrifice through four unique and intertwined stories: a famous bohemian television star in search of his estranged son, a newly enlisted soldier; a commander and his newly befriended intelligence analyst; tank crewman who represent Israel’s Black Panthers social justice reform movement; and a female officer who refuses to leave the battlefields, disobeying direct orders to evacuate. Shot at the actual location of the war, these intimate portraitures highlight the tension, anxieties and sentiments of the country’s people through a magnified lens, with the unprecedented outcome of an unlikely victory.
