LAST CHANCE U

AMAZON PRIME // SEASONS 1 - 3 AVAILABLE NOW

Emmy-nominated series Last Chance U returns to give viewers an intense, unfiltered look at a rising junior college football program. The quaint town of Independence, Kansas, is the new setting, as the underdog Pirates have a chance to finally stand tall after more than a decade of losses.

Their bigger-than-life head coach, Jason Brown. A sharp-tongued, yet compassionate son of Compton, California, Brown aims to get the Pirates their first conference title in over 30 years, and doesn’t care if he jolts this quiet Midwestern place while he does it.

THE BLEEDING EDGE

NETFLIX // AVAILABLE NOW

What you don't know, can hurt you. America has the most technologically advanced health care system in the world, yet medical interventions have become the third leading cause of death, and the overwhelming majority of high-risk implanted devices never require a single clinical trial.

Filmmaker Kirby Dick examines the $400 billion medical device industry and the profit-driven mind-set that rushes implanted devices into the marketplace with proper clinical trials.

WILD WILD COUNTRY

When the world's most controversial guru builds a utopian city in the Oregon desert, a massive conflict with local ranchers ensues; producing the first bioterror attack in US history, the largest case of illegal wire-tapping ever recorded, and the world's biggest collection of Rolls-Royce automobiles.

Wild Wild Country is historical filmmaking brought to life on an epic scale. It’s a tale so wild that seeing means barely believing.
