As Nick, Joe, and Kevin separate and try to find their footing as individuals, Chasing Happiness goes beyond the headlines and behind the scenes, as they build their own successful lives and careers outside of the band, and ultimately rebuild their relationships as siblings and rekindle a musical spark that inspires their upcoming album, “Happiness Begins.”
Absentia S2: Friday, 14 June
Absentia centers on FBI agent Emily Byrne (Stana Katic), who had disappeared without a trace and was declared dead after hunting one of Boston’s most notorious serial killers.
Six years later, Emily was found in a cabin in the woods, barely alive, and with no memory of the years she was missing.
Returning home to learn her husband, Special Agent Nick Durand (Patrick Heusinger), had remarried and her son, Flynn (Patrick McAuley), was being raised by another woman, she soon found herself implicated in a new series of murders.
In Season 2, after tracking down and killing her abductor, Emily struggles to define her new normal as a mother and a survivor of six years of physical and mental torture.
Even while she rebuilds her relationship with her son, Emily still cannot shake the darkness of her past. She enlists Boston police detective Tommy Gibbs (Angel Bonanni) in a secret investigation of her mysterious history. When the case turns deadly, she risks everything to uncover the truth and protect her family.
Too Old to Die Young: Friday, 14 June
Groundbreaking filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn expands his boundary-pushing approach to storytelling with the 10-part limited series Too Old to Die Young.
As the lives of a young police officer and the heir to a Mexican drug cartel collide, their parallel journeys through the criminal underbelly of Los Angeles guarantee a catastrophic confrontation. Martin (Miles Teller), a cop on a career fast-track, and Jesus (Augusto Aguilera), a budding drug kingpin, are both operating on the seedier side of the San Fernando Valley when a violent act of revenge ties their fates together inextricably.
Under the tutelage of ex-FBI agent turned vigilante Viggo (John Hawkes), Martin attempts to atone for his role in the death of a fellow officer by assassinating the most depraved criminals he can find, while Jesus steps up to lead the Los Angeles branch of his family’s crime empire, as inevitable tragedy envelops them both.
