SEASON TWO TEASER TRAILER, KEY ART & NEW CASTINGS UNVEILED OUT OF NEW YORK COMIC CON

Air Date Schedule:

EPISODE 201 – DECEMBER 13, 2020

EPISODE 202 – DECEMBER 20, 2020

REMAINING EPISODES PREMIERING IN 2021

New casting announcements for this season include Lucius Fox, who will be played by Simon Manyonda (His Dark Materials) and Melanie Troy, who will be played by Jessica de Gouw (The Hunting, Gretel and Hansel).

Lucius Fox is a young American scientist, precise to the point of pedantry, deliberately calm, honest, and direct to a fault; he suffers no fools gladly. His friends would say he’s a man of conscience; his enemies would say he’s judgmental and dogmatic. An integral part of the DC universe, this marks his introduction to the Wayne family.

Melanie Troy is a military orphan, who became a woman of the world far too young. She married a dominating older man, but with her wry intelligence and a sardonic sense of humor, she’s no submissive and gives as good as she gets. Introduced to Alfie as the wife of his former SAS Captain, the two kindred spirits have an immediate connection.

Season two also introduces new series regulars James Purefoy(The Following, Sex Education, Altered Carbon), Edward Hogg(Taboo, Harlots, White Lightning), Jessye Romeo (Curfew, In the Long Run), Ramon Tikaram (Brassic, The Victim) and Harriet Slater (Faunutland and the Lost Magic).

$25.99 SRP DVD

—–Retired and restless, Detective Julien Baptiste (Tcheky Karyo, “The Missing”) is visiting Amsterdam, where his daughter has recently given birth. A lunch with old flame Martha Horchner, Amsterdam’s chief of police, turns out to be more than a catch-up on old times: she wants his help finding Natalie, a missing girl who is the niece of Englishman Edward Stratton (Tom Hollander, “The Night Manager”). Martha believes the case is connected to a Romanian sex trafficking gang. Baptiste meets up with Edward and they begin their search, but it’s not long before he realizes that all is not as it seems. Why doesn’t anyone want to talk about the missing girl? Who is the man following Baptiste’s wife? What is the connection between the case and the transsexual brothel whose owner has sent someone to follow them? And who is the mysterious woman who helps the sex industry girls and tells them that Natalie has run away to Germany? As Baptiste starts to uncover some of the truths behind the lies, he realizes there is more to this case than meets the eye.

It offers the hope that new science that can alter DNA with pinpoint precision could revolutionize the treatment of some of the world’s most complex diseases. Powerful, contemporary personal stories and stunning breakthroughs weave with the fascinating story of the historical search for the human genome and the accomplishments of generations of dedicated scientists and amateur researchers. The science of genetics holds at once the promise of eradicating disease but also the threat of altering the very essence of what it means to be human.

The high IQs of the gifted IHP students are only matched by the high pressures the school’s principal, Dr. Samuels (William G. Schilling), places upon the self-proclaimed geeks. The unconventional Charlie decides to defy expectations and try teaching the kids of the IHP, even though they all seemingly know more than he does. There’s one advantage Charlie has over his charges, however: the courage to take risks and grow.

The unconventional Charlie decides to defy expectations and try teaching the kids of the IHP, even though they all seemingly know more than he does. There’s one advantage Charlie has over his charges, however: the courage to take risks and grow. Soon enough, his 10 charges – Arvid (Dan Frischman), Darlene (Robin Givens), Simone (Khrystyne Haje), Alan (Tony O’Dell), Dennis (Dan Schneider), Sarah (Kimberly Russell), Janice (Tannis Vallely), Jawaharlal (Jory Husain), Eric (Brian Robbins) and Maria (Leslie Bega) – begin to exceed expectations on their own.
