Chrissy & Dave follows Chrissy Teigen and David Chang, who, along with Joel Kim Booster, will be “cracking the restaurant scene wide open in Los Angeles. While David gets his hands dirty in the back of house with the restaurant’s chef, Chrissy and Joel will hold court in the front of house, hosting an always loose, unexpected and entertaining dinner party with undeniably delicious food and great conversation. 

The show will feature celebrity guests handpicked like Jimmy Kimmel and his wife, writer/producer Molly McNearney. It’s EPed by Alfred Street Industries’ Dan Cutforth, Jane Lipsitz, Nan Strait, Dan Volpe, Michael Rucker and San Heng; Vox Media Studios’ Chad Mumm and Mark W. Olsen; Majordomo Media’s David Chang, Dave O’Connor, Chris Ying and Christopher Chen; Huntley Productions’ Teigen and Tracy Stevens; and 3 Arts’ Luke Dillon. The show is directed by Anna Chai.

Royal Rules of Ohio is a documentary series following three Ghanaian sisters as they navigate their twenties in Columbus, Ohio. The Agyekum sisters live a lavish life as the daughters of royal descendants of two of the most wealthy and powerful Ghanaian kingdoms. However, with that privilege comes great responsibility.

Sasha Reid and the Midnight Order is a documentary series that follows Reid and her secret society who share a common obsession — the dark psychology of those who commit harm and the desire to protect those that law enforcement has ignored. They band together to work outside the system to protect the vulnerable, solve cold cases, and dive into the dark minds of killers using forensic expertise and world-class data skills. Their motto is to have compassion first, but let the evidence lead.

It’s directed by Nancy Schwartzman and Maija Norris serves as showrunner. Executive producers are Schwartzman and Norris along with XTR’s Justin Lacob, Kathleen Flood and Bryn Mooser.
