— November 22, 2019

MUST-WATCH TITLES FOR DECEMBER December 8 – SHOWTIME’S THE L WORD: GENERATION Q *Series Premiere* (10 p.m. ET) The sequel to the groundbreaking drama series THE L WORD®, which originally ran on SHOWTIME from 2004-2009, continues to follow the intermingled lives of Bette Porter (Jennifer Beals), Alice Pieszecki (Leisha Hailey) and Shane McCutcheon (Katherine Moennig), along with new characters Dani Nùñez (Arienne Mandi), Micah Lee (Leo Sheng), Finley (Jacqueline Toboni), Sophie Suarez (Rosanny Zayas) and Gigi (Sepideh Moafi) as they experience love, heartbreak, sex, setbacks and success in L.A. HIGHLIGHTS December 8 – SHOWTIME’S WORK IN PROGRESS *Series Premiere* (11 p.m. ET) A funny and uniquely human comedy, WORK IN PROGRESS features Abby McEnany as a 45-year-old self-identified fat, queer dyke from Chicago whose misfortune and despair unexpectedly lead her to a vibrantly transformative relationship. Chicago-based performer Karin Anglin co-stars alongside Celeste Pechous, with Julia Sweeney (SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE, SHRILL) appearing in a crucial role as herself. Theo Germaine (THE POLITICIAN) will also appear as a guest star. December 2 – KILLING PATIENT ZERO *Canadian Documentary* After garnering critical acclaim for its world premiere at the 2019 Hot Docs Festival, the Canadian documentary KILLING PATIENT ZERO comes to Crave in line with World Aids Day. The poignant documentary tells the story of the man known as Patient Zero, who was accused of spreading AIDS in North America and vilified as the embodiment of gay hedonism and promiscuity. Based on Richard McKay's ground-breaking book Patient Zero and the Making of the AIDS Epidemic, this is a fascinating portrait not only of a man, but of a crisis that shocked a community into action. KILLING PATIENT ZERO kicks off Crave’s new Doc Mondays lineup. All-new documentaries premiering Mondays in December also include: FRAMING JOHN DELOREAN (Dec. 9), SCOTTY AND THE SECRET HISTORY OF HOLLYWOOD (Dec. 16), FUNNY TWEETS (Dec. 23), MEMORY: ORIGINS OF ALIEN (Dec. 30) and ASK DR. RUTH (Dec. 30). December 20 – SQUISH *New series from WOW! Unlimited Media* SQUISH, a new kids a comedy about an amoeba, joins Crave’s Kids Collection this month. Squish wears a ballcap, and oddly enough, he acts like all those other kids you might meet in a middle school. If those other kids were amoeba, paramecium, and microbes. This whole Town of Small Pond where Squish lives looks suspiciously like our own world, with its tidy streets and schools and homes. But it’s inhabited solely by single-celled creatures with a few unicellular quirks. Algae are the cool kids, parasites can’t be trusted. Bacteria always makes a mess of everything. December 20 – PAW PATROL: PUP TALES *Season 1* The animated television series, PAW PATROL: PUP TALES joins Crave’s Kid’s collection this month. The series follows a boy named Ryder and a team of six playful rescue dogs (Marshall, Rubble, Chase, Rocky, Zuma and Skye) that make up the Paw Patrol. These pups use their individual talents to protect the seaside town of Adventure Bay. CRAVE’S HOLIDAY PROGRAMMING GUIDE November 29 – Holiday Collection ‘Tis the season!

January 1 – NEW EDEN *Crave Original* All 8 episodes of Crave’s Original new series, NEW EDEN drop on Crave on New Year’s Day. From the minds of showrunners and stars Evany Rosen and Kayla Lorette comes a true crime comedy about the highs and lows of starting an all-female cult. NEW EDEN begins in 1977, when Katherine Wryfield (Lorette) and Grace Lee (Rosen) attempted to start a large scale feminist utopia. But in the inexperienced hands of Lee and Wryfield, the community quickly devolved into a drug addled, alien worshipping mess. Oh, and there were definitely some murders. Spanning the 70s, 80s, and 90s, NEW EDEN is the wildest documentary you’ve never seen about the most notorious women you’ve never heard of.
