SHOWTIME(R) OFFERS DOCUMENTARY FEATURE “ATTICA” – SHORTLISTED FOR OSCARS(R) – FOR FREE

Ahead of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the Acclaimed Film Is Now Available At No Cost Through the End of Black History Month

NEW YORK – January 14, 2022 – Leading into Martin Luther King Jr. Day, SHOWTIME is releasing its Oscar-shortlisted documentary feature ATTICA for free, beginning today. Available for viewing through the end of Black History Month, ATTICA is on Sho.com and YouTube, as well as across multiple SHOWTIME streaming and on demand platforms.

SHOWTIME delves deep inside the bloodiest prison rebellion in U.S. history with ATTICA, a feature-length documentary from Emmy(R)-winning filmmaker Stanley Nelson (Freedom Riders, The Murder of Emmett Till) and co-director Traci A. Curry. Named one of the National Board of Review’s Top 5 Documentaries of 2021, the film recounts in vivid detail the five-day 1971 prison rebellion at the Attica Correctional Facility in upstate New York, which took the lives of 29 inmates and 10 hostages – the deadliest single day of violence Americans inflicted on each other since the Civil War.

Through original interviews with former inmates, family members of the hostages and other witnesses, ATTICA brings us back to a moment in history that resonated for decades, utilizing hundreds of hours of footage and never-before-seen archival tapes from inside the prison. The film captures the personalities, politics, emotions and tragedy that stands as a wake-up call – then and now – about the need for prison reform and the responsibilities of justice.

ATTICA is produced by Nelson’s Firelight Films and Topic Studios for SHOWTIME Documentary Films. Marcia Smith and Jihan Robinson are executive producers.

“DEXTER: NEW BLOOD” SHATTERS VIEWERSHIP RECORDS FOR SHOWTIME(R)

Drama Starring Michael C. Hall Becomes the Most-Watched Series in Network History
LOS ANGELES – January 11, 2022 – With its finale on Sunday, DEXTER: NEW BLOOD wrapped up a record-shattering season for SHOWTIME. For its 10-episode run, DEXTER: NEW BLOOD is averaging over 8 million weekly viewers across all platforms, becoming the most-watched series in SHOWTIME history. With a total of 3 million viewers on Sunday alone, this was the biggest SHOWTIME finale in more than eight years, surpassing the season-three finale of HOMELAND in 2013. The finale – written by series showrunner Clyde Phillips – also set a new SHOWTIME record with 2 million viewers from streaming and on demand platforms on Sunday.

Thanks in large part to DEXTER: NEW BLOOD and new drama series YELLOWJACKETS, SHOWTIME delivered the most signups in its history during the fourth quarter of 2021.

“We’re thrilled by the overwhelming response from the millions of fans of DEXTER: NEW BLOOD these past 10 weeks,” said Gary Levine, President of Entertainment, Showtime Networks Inc. “Whether they loved the finale or couldn’t bear to see it end, we so appreciate their passion. Our deepest thanks to Michael, Clyde, Scott and Marcos for delivering a profoundly powerful conclusion to our beloved and extraordinary series.”

The cast also features Jennifer Carpenter (DEXTER), Julia Jones (The Mandalorian), Jack Alcott (THE GOOD LORD BIRD), Alano Miller (Sylvie’s Love), Johnny Sequoyah (Believe) and Clancy Brown (The Crown, BILLIONS(R)). Set 10 years after Dexter went missing in the eye of Hurricane Laura, DEXTER: NEW BLOOD found him living under an assumed name in the fictional small town of Iron Lake, New York. Dexter may have been embracing his new life, but in the wake of unexpected events in this close-knit community, his Dark Passenger inevitably beckons.

The original eight-season run of the original DEXTER premiered in the fall of 2006 and became one of the most acclaimed series on television, earning multiple Emmy(R) nominations for best television drama series as well as a prestigious Peabody Award in 2008, and was twice named one of AFI’s top 10 television series. All previous seasons of DEXTER are now available for subscribers on SHOWTIME.

Produced by SHOWTIME, DEXTER: NEW BLOOD is executive produced by Clyde Phillips, Michael C. Hall, Scott Reynolds, Marcos Siega, Bill Carraro, John Goldwyn and Sara Colleton.

SHOWTIME(R) DOCUMENTARY FILMS ANNOUNCES “WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT COSBY” FROM EMMY(R) WINNER W. KAMAU BELL

Four-Part Docuseries Will Premiere at Sundance Film Festival Ahead of Network Premiere on Saturday, January 30 at 10 PM ET/PT

First-Look Teaser Released

LOS ANGELES – December 20, 2021 – SHOWTIME Documentary Films today announced WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT COSBY, a four-part docuseries from Emmy-winning director W. Kamau Bell (United Shades of America with W. Kamau Bell) that offers an in-depth look at the revolutionary career and personal descent of Bill Cosby. WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT COSBY will screen at the Sundance Film Festival on January 22, ahead of its SHOWTIME premiere on Sunday, January 30 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. All episodes will be available across all SHOWTIME streaming and VOD platforms on January 30. The announcement was made by Vinnie Malhotra, Executive Vice President, Nonfiction Programming, Showtime Networks Inc. To watch and share the trailer, visit:

Cosby, the renowned comedian, actor, philanthropist and African American icon, who for decades was revered as “America’s Dad,” has gained infamy as a criminal defendant in a sexual-assault prosecution. The series explores the complex story of Cosby’s life and work, weighing his actions against his indisputable global influence through interviews with comedians, cultural commentators, journalists and women who share their most personal, harrowing encounters with Cosby. Through archival footage, Cosby reveals who he may have been all along – the antithesis of the principled, public figure who became a hero, not only to African American people but to all people.

The four-parter sheds new light on Cosby’s cultural contributions and impact at the height of his disgrace – accused of rape, drug-facilitated sexual assault, sexual battery and other misconduct by more than 60 women as far back as nearly 60 years. Bell, who grew up idolizing Cosby, unpacks how Cosby’s desire for power, which propelled his professional success, could be the same driving force that motivated his alleged crimes against women. WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT COSBY peels back complex layers, portraying the genius performer, philanthropist and role model, contrasted by the accused sexual predator that now defines him. It offers viewers the chance to reconsider Cosby’s mark in a society where rape culture, toxic masculinity, capitalism and white supremacy are shaping how we re-evaluate sex, power and agency.

“As a child of Bill Cosby, I was a huge fan of all his shows and wanted to be a comedian because of him,” said Bell. “I never thought I’d ever wrestle with who we all thought Cosby was and who we now understand him to be. I’m not sure he would want me to do this work, but Cliff Huxtable definitely would.”

“Kamau has bravely ventured into a very complicated and nuanced area of the Bill Cosby story, which has yet to be explored in this depth. It’s an important and under-reported perspective on the legacy of one of history’s most iconic African American entertainers,” added Malhotra.

Bell is a stand-up comedian, director, executive producer, host and author. He hosts and executive produces the Emmy(R) Award-winning docuseries United Shades of America and co-hosts the podcast Politically Re-Active. Bell’s second book, Do the Work: An Anti-Racist Activity Book, co-written by Kate Schatz, is forthcoming from Workman in July 2022. Bell is the ACLU Celebrity Ambassador for Racial Justice and serves on the advisory board of Hollaback! and the board of directors of DonorsChoose.

WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT COSBY is a Boardwalk Pictures Production in association with WKB Industries for SHOWTIME, directed by W. Kamau Bell. The series is executive produced by Bell, Andrew Fried, Katie A. King, Dane Lillegard, Jordan Wynn and Sarina Roma. King also serves as showrunner and Geraldine Porras serves as a co-executive producer.

LOS ANGELES – December 16, 2021 – SHOWTIME has renewed the critically acclaimed survival drama YELLOWJACKETS for a second season. Created and executive produced by Ashley Lyle and Bart Nickerson (Narcos), the one-hour drama series stars Melanie Lynskey (Castle Rock), Oscar(R) and Emmy(R) nominee Juliette Lewis (Camping), Emmy nominee Christina Ricci (Z: The Beginning of Everything) and Tawny Cypress (Unforgettable). Jonathan Lisco (Animal Kingdom, Halt and Catch Fire) joins Lyle and Nickerson as executive producer and showrunning partner.

Drew Comins of Creative Engine also serves as executive producer. The premiere of YELLOWJACKETS has been seen by over 4 million viewers across platforms to date. Season one of YELLOWJACKETS, which received a Critics’ Choice nomination for ‘Best Drama Series,’ is currently airing Sunday nights at 10 p.m. ET/PT and will finale on Sunday, January 16. The announcement was made today by Gary Levine and Jana Winograde, Presidents of Entertainment, Showtime Networks Inc.

“YELLOWJACKETS has been an unadulterated sensation for SHOWTIME,” said Levine. “We are overwhelmed by both the acclaim and the audience response to our series, including several ‘Best of 2021’ lists, a 100% score on Rotten Tomatoes and snowballing viewership. Clearly there is a hunger for originality and audacity, and our incredible showrunners Ashley, Bart and Jonathan, along with their pitch-perfect cast, have delivered that and so much more. I can’t wait to see the surprises they have in store for us in season two.”

“We are beyond grateful for the incredible support we’ve received for this show – both from Gary Levine, Jana Winograde, David Nevins, Amy Israel, Dave Binegar, and the rest of the fantastic Showtime team, and from our growing team of “Citizen Detectives” at home,” said Lyle, Nickerson and Lisco. “We can’t wait to continue telling this story with our amazing cast and crew. The saga continues!” Equal parts survival epic, psychological horror story and coming-of-age drama, YELLOWJACKETS is the saga of a team of wildly talented high school girls soccer players who become the (un)lucky survivors of a plane crash deep in the remote northern wilderness. The series chronicles their descent from a complicated but thriving team to savage clans, while also tracking the lives they’ve attempted to piece back together nearly 25 years later, proving that the past is never really past and what began out in the wilderness is far from over. Season one also stars Ella Purnell (Sweetbitter), Samantha Hanratty (SHAMELESS), Sophie Thatcher (Prospect), Jasmin Savoy Brown (The Leftovers), Sophie Nélisse (The Book Thief), Steven Krueger (The Originals) and Warren Kole (Shades of Blue).
