TAMMY
Saturday, December 19 at 12 p.m. ET/PT
Tammy is having a bad day. She’s totaled her clunker car, gotten fired from her thankless job at a greasy burger joint, and instead of finding comfort at home, finds her husband getting comfortable with the neighbor in her own house. It’s time to take her boom box and book it. The bad news is she’s broke and without wheels. The worse news is her grandma, Pearl, is her only option-with a car, cash, and an itch to see Niagara Falls. Not exactly the escape Tammy had in mind. But on the road, with grandma riding shot gun, it may be just what Tammy needs.

TALLADEGA NIGHTS: THE BALLAD OF RICKY BOBBY
Tuesday, December 8 at 10 p.m. ET/PT and 12 a.m. ET/PT
Ricky Bobby has always dreamed of driving fast–real fast–like his father, Reese Bobby, who left the family to pursue his racing dreams. Early on, Ricky’s mother, Lucy Bobby worried that her boy was also destined to end up as a professional daredevil on wheels. Ricky enters the racing arena as a “jackman” for slovenly driver Terry Cheveaux and accidentally gets his big break behind the wheel when Cheveaux makes an unscheduled pit stop during a race to gorge on a chicken sandwich. Ricky jumps into the car and so begins the ballad of Ricky Bobby. Ricky quickly becomes one of NASCAR’s top stars, supported by his pit boys–the impressively large crew chief Lucius Washington, a trio of lovably moronic but loyal crew members, Herschell, Kyle and Glenn, as well as racing partner and boyhood best friend, Cal Naughton, Jr. They are all part of the Dennit Racing team, headed by wealthy Dennit Senior and his petulant son, Dennit Junior, whose jealousy of Ricky Bobby increases with every victory. In a short time, Ricky Bobby is on top of the world. He has everything a championship NASCAR driver could ever want–a gorgeous wife, Carley, a lakeside mansion, two hell-raising sons, Walker and Texas Ranger, huge sponsor endorsements and a string of victories from Daytona to Darlington. Ricky Bobby’s “win at all costs” approach had made him a natural hero. But after a frightening crash sends Ricky Bobby to the hospital, he loses his nerve and falls on hard times. When his career and his wife are taken over by his friend Cal, Ricky Bobby turns his back on racing and takes his sons back to his small hometown to live with his mother. But Ricky just isn’t cut for the slow life away from the race track and soon hits rock bottom. His mother reluctantly turns to the only person she can think of to help her son–his estranged father Reese Bobby. Ricky Bobby will do anything to find a way back to the top, no matter how many speed bumps life throws his way.

Powerful Linear Trio to Offer Four Days of Curated Crossover Programming from HBO Max Including Access to Exciting New Max Originals “The Flight Attendant,” “Titans” and Never Before Seen Clips from “Superintelligence”

LOS ANGELES – NOVEMBER 9, 2020 – TNT, TBS and truTV are taking this “Thanksgiving to the HBO Max” and giving audiences a taste of the streamer’s powerhouse programming slate. Over the course of the holiday weekend the networks’ nearly 140 million collective viewers will get a sampling of new Max Originals, popular DC films and series, blockbuster movies and the opportunity to receive an entire week of HBO Max for free.

From Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 26 through Sunday, Nov. 29 each network will air its own themed content from HBO Max.

On Thursday, TNT will feature DC movies, including the network premiere of “Aquaman,” as well as the first episode of season one of HBO Max’s original series “Titans.”

On Friday, Melissa McCarthy comes to TBS with films such as “Tammy” and a sneak peek into her new HBO Max original film “Superintelligence” premiering Thursday, Nov. 26. In this action comedy, when an all-powerful Superintelligence (James Corden) chooses to study the most average person on Earth, Carol Peters (McCarthy), the fate of the world hangs in the balance. As the A.I. decides to enslave, save or destroy humanity, it’s up to Carol to prove that people are worth saving.

Kaley Cuoco takes over TBS on Sunday with a curated marathon of “The Big Bang Theory,” followed by the pilot episode of her new series “The Flight Attendant,” premiering on HBO Max on Thursday, Nov. 26. “The Flight Attendant” is a story of how an entire life can change in one night. A flight attendant (Cuoco) wakes up in the wrong hotel, in the wrong bed, with a dead man – and no idea what happened. The dark comedic thriller is based on the novel of the same name by New York Times bestselling author Chris Bohjalian.
“Thanksgiving to the HBO Max” is an excellent demonstration of the powerful synergies that are possible at WarnerMedia,” said Brett Weitz, General Manager of TNT, TBS and truTV. “With so many of us spending time in front of the television after Thanksgiving dinner and leftovers on top of leftovers, it’s wonderful that we get to offer free trials of HBO Max and present some of their incredible originals to the audience of our three linear networks.

TALLADEGA NIGHTS: THE BALLAD OF RICKY BOBBY
Monday, November 16 at 10 p.m. ET/PT and 12 a.m ET/PT
Ricky Bobby has always dreamed of driving fast–real fast–like his father, Reese Bobby, who left the family to pursue his racing dreams. Early on, Ricky’s mother, Lucy Bobby worried that her boy was also destined to end up as a professional daredevil on wheels. Ricky enters the racing arena as a “jackman” for slovenly driver Terry Cheveaux and accidentally gets his big break behind the wheel when Cheveaux makes an unscheduled pit stop during a race to gorge on a chicken sandwich. Ricky jumps into the car and so begins the ballad of Ricky Bobby. Ricky quickly becomes one of NASCAR’s top stars, supported by his pit boys–the impressively large crew chief Lucius Washington, a trio of lovably moronic but loyal crew members, Herschell, Kyle and Glenn, as well as racing partner and boyhood best friend, Cal Naughton, Jr. They are all part of the Dennit Racing team, headed by wealthy Dennit Senior and his petulant son, Dennit Junior, whose jealousy of Ricky Bobby increases with every victory. In a short time, Ricky Bobby is on top of the world. He has everything a championship NASCAR driver could ever want–a gorgeous wife, Carley, a lakeside mansion, two hell-raising sons, Walker and Texas Ranger, huge sponsor endorsements and a string of victories from Daytona to Darlington. Ricky Bobby’s “win at all costs” approach had made him a natural hero. But after a frightening crash sends Ricky Bobby to the hospital, he loses his nerve and falls on hard times. When his career and his wife are taken over by his friend Cal, Ricky Bobby turns his back on racing and takes his sons back to his small hometown to live with his mother. But Ricky just isn’t cut for the slow life away from the race track and soon hits rock bottom. His mother reluctantly turns to the only person she can think of to help her son–his estranged father Reese Bobby. Ricky Bobby will do anything to find a way back to the top, no matter how many speed bumps life throws his way.

Magic is Pushed to the Limit As truTV Greenlights “Big Trick Energy”





Magic is Pushed to the Limit As truTV Greenlights “Big Trick Energy”

Chris Ramsay, Eric Leclerc, Wes Barker and Alex Boyer Impress Unsuspecting People on the Street with Extreme Stunt Magic


LOS ANGELES – OCTOBER 27, 2020 – truTV has ordered 10 episodes of the comedic and outrageous unscripted illusionist stunt series “Big Trick Energy.” Best friends for more than 10 years, master magicians and mischievous daredevils Chris Ramsay, Eric Leclerc, Wes Barker and Alex Boyer venture into the real world to both shock and awe unsuspecting spectators – and each other – with their unique brand of extreme, provocative, mind-blowing magic. Fueled by their camaraderie and spontaneous antics, their radical, unconventional and even dangerous magic defies expectations and completely astonishes their subjects.

From shock collar card tricks to mind bending one of their own cars in broad daylight, no stunt is off limits and no line is uncrossable to these self-proclaimed “Abracadipshits.” Viewers will also get a peek behind the curtain when they reveal how some of these unforgettable experiences were created.

“They’re more magical Jackasses than self-proclaimed Abracadipshits, but it goes without saying that Chris, Eric, Wes and Alex are making magic cool again,” says Corie Henson, executive vice president, head of unscripted programming for TBS, TNT, and truTV. “They’re charming, dangerous and hilarious. You’ll definitely want to spend the night with them.”

“These guys are the real deal, as hilarious as they are amazing, sharing a bond of friendship and camaraderie that is at the heart of the show’s creative DNA,” says Tony DiSanto, CEO of DIGA Studios. “As a lifelong magic fan (and a spectacularly unaccomplished amateur magician), I personally couldn’t be more excited to unleash ‘Big Trick Energy’ onto the world!”

“Big Trick Energy” is executive produced by Tony DiSanto, Nick Rigg and Tommy Coriale for DIGA Studios, along with Chris Ramsay, Ian Frisch and Mark Efman.
