Overnight was the first two episodes of Burger Truck Brawl on Discovery+. The Billionaire Burger Boyz (and the Burger Girl) own and operate one of L.A.’s most successful food trucks. They know better than anyone that it takes mad culinary chops, creativity and a whole lot of hustle to go from the bottom to the top of the biz. They’ve conquered the City of Angels, so now they’re hitting the road to lay down the challenge to other successful food trucks far and wide. In each episode, the Boyz will roll into a city, meet the challenging food truck, craft a new menu for that city, then sell, sell, sell. The winning truck walks away with a cash bet put up by both teams before the competition.
Overnight was the complete first season of Children of the Cult on Discovery+. The series tells the astonishing tale of one of the world’s most notorious and prolific cults, The Children of God, through the stories of three British women who escaped its clutches. The series tracks the dramatic rise and fall of the cult alongside the unfolding criminal investigation to bring its members to justice.
