Below are descriptions of each of the projects, all in AT&T’s own words:
AT&T AUDIENCE Network will kick off its fall slate with the premiere of the second season of its critically acclaimed original comedy series, “Loudermilk.” The new season starts on Oct. 16 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
After a relapse in New Orleans and a falling out with his best friend and sponsor, Ben (Will Sasso), Loudermilk (Ron Livingston) is back in Seattle trying to piece his world back together. With his “Sober Friends” meeting hijacked, a messy new relationship, and a stumbling start back into writing, Loudermilk is forced to do a little soul searching (which he hates) and decide what he wants from life. While he still has the ability to help those around him, Loudermilk just may find that the person who needs the most work is himself.
“Loudermilk” is created and executive produced by Peter Farrelly and Bobby Mort. Peter Farrelly and Bobby Farrelly will each direct episodes of season two. Bobby Farrelly, Mark Burg, Bart Peters, and Shane Elrod also serve as executive producers.
The original comedy is produced by Big Branch Productions.
“Give Us This Day”
The network will also debut a new documentary “Give Us This Day.” Catch the premiere on Nov. 8 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
From Emmy and Peabody award-winning filmmakers Jeff Zimbalist and Michael Zimbalist comes a new feature-length documentary. With unprecedented access, the film tracks a year in East St. Louis, the city with the highest homicide rate in the United States. Told from the perspectives of both police officers and residents, a community plagued by gun violence experiences complex challenges, heartbreak and hope.
“Condor” (pictured above)
After a successful debut season, “Condor,” AT&T AUDIENCE Network’s conspiracy thriller series produced by MGM Television and Skydance Television, will return for a second season.
Based on the novel “Six Days of the Condor” by James Grady and screenplay “Three Days of the Condor” by Lorenzo Semple Jr. and David Rayfiel, season one of “Condor” follows a young CIA analyst (Max Irons) who stumbles onto a terrible but brilliant plan that threatens the lives of millions.
Season one of “Condor” stars Max Irons, William Hurt, Leem Lubany, Angel Bonanni, Kristen Hager, with Mira Sorvino and Bob Balaban. Brendan Fraser guest stars. The teleplay is created by Jason Smilovic and Todd Katzberg. Smilovic serves as showrunner and executive producer for the series.
“Condor” is internationally distributed by MGM.
“You Me Her”
AT&T AUDIENCE Network has also signed on with Entertainment One for a fourth and fifth season of “You Me Her.” The series, created by Executive Producer and Showrunner John Scott Shepherd, stars Greg Poehler, Rachel Blanchard and Priscilla Faia in a romantic comedy with a little something extra: a third person. The show’s executive producers are Alta Loma Entertainment’s Peter Jaysen and Alan Gasmer.
At the end of last season, the “throuple” pulled together their happy ending – a surprise poly commitment ceremony in a pizza joint. Now, they’re settling back into the ‘burbs to live a tweaked version of the conventional “married with children” life. Are “the accidental polyamorists” trying to jam a triangular peg into a round-hole world? Will they break the neighborhood, their peculiar romance, or both?
“We’re excited to bring back some of our most popular original shows as well as introduce a new documentary as we kick off the fall season,” said Daniel York, chief content officer and senior executive vice president for AT&T. “We want to give customers more choices from our popular slate of original programming – whether they enjoy comedy, high-intense drama or captivating docuseries.”
