#1 - Rectify
Rectify follows the life of Daniel Holden upon his release from jail after serving nineteen years on Georgia's Death Row before DNA evidence disputed the State's original case. Holden, who was only eighteen years of age when convicted and sentenced to die for the brutal rape and murder of a sixteen year old girl, returns to his family and to his hometown where the murder occurred and where many still believe he is guilty. Daniel spent all of his adult life waiting to die. Now he must learn how to live again or decide if he even wants to while others choose whether or not he will have that chance.
#2 - State of the Union
Every week before their weekly marital therapy session, estranged couple Tom and Louise meet at a pub to try and get their story straight for the therapist. With each successive episode, we piece together how their lives were, what drew them together and what has started to pull them apart.
#3 - This Close
BFFs Kate and Michael, who are both deaf and live in Los Angeles, are about to face new challenges - including a bad breakup, being tokenized at work and a troubling secret - all of which test their bond in surprising ways.
#4 - Hap and Leonard
Hap Collins, an East Texas white boy with a weakness for Southern women, meets Leonard Pine, a gay, black Vietnam vet with a hot temper. When Hap’s seductive ex-wife Trudy resurfaces with a deal they can’t refuse, a simple get-rich-quick scheme snowballs into bloody mayhem.
#5 - Jonestown: Terror in the Jungle
Timed to coincide with the 40th anniversary of the 1978 Jonestown mass murder-suicide that killed more than 900 Americans, this four-part documentary tells of leader Jim Jones' transformation from charismatic preacher and civil rights advocate into narcissistic demagogue who championed the biggest mass suicide in U.S. history. The story is based on the best-selling book by investigative journalist Jeff Guinn and features archival footage -- including secret FBI and CIA recordings, unreleased photographs, personal letters and previously classified documents -- as well as new interviews with survivors and Jones family members who have not previously spoken on the record.
#6 - The Red Road
The Red Road is a hard-hitting drama that revolves around a local cop struggling to keep his family together while policing two clashing communities: the small town where he grew up and the neighboring mountains, home of a Native American tribe. After a terrible tragedy and coverup occurs involving the cop’s wife an unholy alliance is forged between the cop and an ex-con, a dangerous member of the tribe that will come back to haunt all involved.
#7 - No One Saw a Thing
A true crime documentary series that examines an unsolved murder in the Heartland and the corrosive effects of vigilantism in small town America. The case garnered international attention in the early 1980s after a resident was shot dead in front of almost 60 townspeople. These witnesses deny having seen anything, to this very day.
