New Exclusives

High School Musical: The Musical: The Series – “Opening Night”

“After months of rehearsals, the theater kids gear up for an unforgettable opening night. But when unexpected audience members show up to shake the cast to its core, will the show “go on” if the Wildcats aren’t all in this together?”

Encore! – “Pippin”

“Thirty-five years ago, high school classmates from Youth Performing Arts High School in Louisville, Kentucky performed the Broadway classic “Pippin.” Now, the cast returns to reprise the roles of their youth with the help of Broadway professionals. William Bradford, the director from the original musical “Pippin,” helps co-direct this performance.”

The World According to Jeff Goldblum – “Coffee”

“Jeff Goldblum is buzzed about COFFEE as he learns the secrets behind its popularity and ubiquity.

Marvel Hero Project – “Radiant Jayera”

“Jayera is a young woman who has been working to level the playing field for those in her neighborhood who could use support in hard financial times. From fundraising for Free Wash Day to holding pop-up “pay what you can” shops, her community service is a benchmark of humanitarianism in her town. Now, Marvel recognizes her incredible work by making her a Super Hero.”

Pick of the Litter – “Training Begins”

“After returning to Guide Dogs for the Blind, the dogs begin formal training.”
