From the creator of True BloodÂ®, this exciting new CinemaxÂ® action drama charts the twists and turns that follow Lucas Hood (Antony Starr), an ex-convict who improbably becomes sheriff of a rural, Amish-area town while searching for a woman he last saw 15 years ago, when he gave himself up to police to let her escape after a jewel heist. Living in Banshee under an assumed name, Carrie Hopewell (Ivana Milicevic) is now married to the local DA, has two children (one of whom may be Lucasâ€™), and is trying desperately to keep a low profile â€“ until Lucas arrives to shake up her world and rekindle old passions. Complicating matters is the fact that Banshee is riddled by corruption, with an Amish overlord, Kai Proctor (Ulrich Thomsen), brutally building a local empire of drugs, gambling and graft. With the help of a boxer-turned-barkeeper named Sugar Bates (Frankie Faison), Lucas is able to stay on even footing with Kai and his thugs, and even manages to bring a measure of tough justice to Banshee. But eventually, Lucasâ€™ appetite for pulling heists pulls him and Carrie into a dangerous cauldron of duplicity, exacerbated when Mr. Rabbit (Ben Cross), the NY mobster they once ripped off, closes in with vengeance on his mind.

Created by Mike White and Laura Dern, this half-hour HBOÂ® comedy series centers on Amy Jellicoe (Dern), a well-intentioned employee of a Southern California corporation who, after flipping out and going to anger-management rehab, emerges with a singular, if at times hilariously misguided, mission to make her company more responsible. When we last saw her, Amy finally presented her research outlining Abaddonn Industriesâ€™ toxic sins, but after being laughed out of the room, she became even more determined to expose the company not only as a polluter, but a bastion of corporate greed and corruption. Having convinced co-worker Tyler (White) to let her use his IT password to retrieve incriminating emails, Season 2 picks up with Amy immersed in gathering evidence against Abaddonn. In this seasonâ€™s eight episodes, Amy enlists the help of journalist Jeff Flender (Dermot Mulroney), and as they work together on a searing exposĂ©, she dreams of a â€śbiggerâ€ť life and develops romantic yearnings for the handsome, well-travelled reporter. Meanwhile, Amyâ€™s ex Levi (Luke Wilson) is still at Open Air Treatment Center in Hawaii, but it remains to be seen whether he will embrace recovery and return as the man she always wanted him to be. Touching, earnest and laugh-out-loud funny, Season 2 of EnlightenedÂ® follows Amy along her personal journey to make change â€“ and the unexpected impact it has on those around her.

Following the urban adventures of a group of 20-something women, the series focuses on Hannah Horvath (Dunham) and her complicated web of NYC friends, ex-friends, boyfriends, and ex-boyfriends. This season, Hannah forges ahead in her writing pursuits and begins seeing someone new, but her enthusiasm is tempered by the responsibility she feels her now-ex Adam (Adam Driver), convalescing after his Season 1 finale accident. Let down by works and still lonely after calling things off with Charlie, Marnie (Allison Williams) needs her best friend and former roommate more than ever, but lingering awkwardness â€“ and some surprising turns â€“ only drive a wedge further between the pair. Meanwhile, still-married Jessa (Jemima Kirke) returns from her honeymoon in Mexico, supplying Hannah with new, wild ideas. Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) takes charge of her new identity as a sexually active woman â€“ and copes with the emotions that come along with it â€“ as Ray (Alex Karpovsky) has an out-of-sight, out-of-mind attitude towards their relationship. The girls have their ups and downs, but the showâ€™s raw poignancy and fresh humor remain consistent. And Season 2 of GirlsÂ® is as addictive as ever.
