This month, CraveTV presents its second original comedy special headlined by Debra DiGiovanni, plus the complete series of HBO’s critically acclaimed drama THE LEFTOVERS begins streaming, while the detective drama BOSCH returns for Season 4. New series, documentaries, and specials that begin streaming in April include:
  • The 10-episode fourth season of BOSCH begins streaming on Saturday, April 14. Based on Michael Connelly's best-selling novels, the series stars Titus Welliver (LOST) as Harry Bosch, a homicide detective with the Los Angeles Police Department who uncovers the dark side of the force. In Season 4, when an attorney is murdered on the eve of his civil rights trial against the LAPD, Bosch is assigned to lead the task force and solve the crime before the city erupts into riots.
  • THE CIRCUS: INSIDE THE WILDEST POLITICAL SHOW ON EARTH, the weekly political documentary series from SHOWTIME, returns with new episodes on Sunday, April 15 at 8 p.m. ET, day-and-date with SHOWTIME in the U.S. Hosted by John Heilemann, Mark McKinnon, and Alex Wagner, who joins the series as a permanent host this season, THE CIRCUS delivers fast-paced, real-time perspective on current political events, taking its cue from the narratives driving the conversation from the White House to Congress to the fast-approaching high-stakes midterm U.S. elections.
  • Hailed by critics and pop culture aficionados as “one of the best TV shows ever made”, “one of TV’s greatest 21st century dramas”, and “HBO’s best drama ever”, every season of HBO’s THE LEFTOVERS begins streaming on Friday, April 20. Based on the novel by Tom Perrotta and co-created by Emmy® winner Damon Lindelof (LOST), the Peabody Award-winning series depicts the world three years after “The Departure”, an unknown, rapture-like event that caused two percent of the world’s population to disappear without a trace. THE LEFTOVERS stars Justin Theroux, Amy Brenneman, Christopher Eccleston, Liv Tyler, Charlie Carver, and Emmy-winner Anne Dowd.
  • On the heels of its recent panel discussion at the 2018 SXSW Festival and a broadcast premiere on HBO Canada, the new HBO documentary ELVIS PRESLEY: THE SEARCHER begins streaming on Friday, April 20. The three-hour, two-film presentation focuses on Elvis Presley the musical artist, taking audiences on a comprehensive creative journey from his childhood through the final Jungle Room recording sessions in 1976. The documentary also features never-before-seen photos and archival footage from private collections around the world, and includes a musical score composed by Pearl Jam lead guitarist Mike McCready.
  • DEBRA DIGIOVANNI: HERE’S THE THING, the second of three CraveTV original stand-up specials, begins streaming on Friday, April 27. Developed in partnership with Just For Laughs, the special was filmed at the Berkeley Church in Toronto during last year’s JFL42 Festival and features Canada’s original cat lady and master of fast-talking comedy as she hilariously explains her love of otters, male models, and TV shows about murder. CraveTV’s first original special DARCY MICHAEL GOES TO CHURCH continues to stream after debuting in March, while GRAHAM CHITTENDEN: RELUCTANT ADULT arrives in May.
  • It’s GTL and t-shirt time again! MTV’s hit series JERSEY SHORE returns after eight years with JERSEY SHORE: FAMILY VACATION on Friday, April 5 on MTV.
