Loredana, Esq.

A six-episode hourlong that traces the life of Loredana Nesci, a former LAPD officer-turned-lawyer as she navigates the criminal defense system and grapples with the question: What is legal and what is right? The series, from Go Go Luckey Prods, is in production and slated to premiere in March. After earning a reputation as a legal crusader, Nesci cultivated a thriving law practice where she defends those who sorely need it - not hardened criminals, just regular people, some of whom may have made bad choices and find themselves judged and condemned. This series dives into one defense attorney's unconventional and potent passion for discovering the truth and doing what she thinks needs to be done.


Iconoclasts

Iconoclasts joins some of today's most influential celebrities with the visionaries that inspire them. The result is a unique, intimate look at both provocative personalities and a spotlight on the cultural contributions of each. Topics include fashion and food, acting and animation, journalism and sports, and more. Thought-provoking and innovative, this one represents celebrity obsession at its finest.


Ministry of Evil: The Twisted Cult of Tony Alamo

Ministry of Evil chronicles the life and crimes of Tony Alamo, who, together with his wife, became a born-again, fire-and-brimstone televangelist and cult leader. The two launched The Tony and Susan Alamo Christian foundation in 1969, which soon evolved into a cult that is said to still operate today. Together, by skirting the law and enforcing a code of silence among their followers, the Alamos came to wield unimaginable power, becoming millionaires on the backs of their believers. The new docuseries explores the cultural consequences of the Alamo empire and features rare archival footage, including an exclusive videotaped deposition with Alamo himself. It also weaves together interviews with the FBI agent who took Alamo down as well as cult survivors who have never previously shared their stories.


Mammas

Featuring fantastical costumes and weirdly delightful enactments, the actress writes, directs and slips into the role of animal mother in nine episodes of "MAMMAS", playing non-traditional creatures and the different ways their maternal instinct is put into action in nature. From cuckoos who willingly hand their young to another mother to fiercely loving wasps who bury animals alive for baby food, Isabella's entertaining and educational portrayals will show varying ways mothers provide for their offspring.
