    Eight years after Jennifer’s death and Rudy's conviction, Rudy's parents, Ethan and Laynie, have done what they can to move on. This is turned upside down when they learn Rudy and Jennifer's story is being turned into a TV drama.

    Rudy's parents must confront their own demons in the wake of their son's resurfacing popularity. As their personal tragedy is turned into public entertainment, the Glasses must consider their roles in the sins of their son. All the while, they must grapple with what is "true" versus "conspiracy," "fact" versus "fiction."

  • Yesterday/Today
    ​Robert is a writer. Or, well, he wants to be. He's only ever had one good idea... but before he could write it, someone else did.

    The concept: a sci-fi comedy about a parallel universe where The Beatles don't exist.

    The thief: Richard Curtis ("Love, Actually") and Danny Boyle ("Trainspotting"), with their 2019 film "Yesterday."

    ​Robert is a writer. Or, well, he wants to be. He's only ever had one good idea... but before he could write it, someone else did.

    The concept: a sci-fi comedy about a parallel universe where The Beatles don't exist.

    The thief: Richard Curtis ("Love, Actually") and Danny Boyle ("Trainspotting"), with their 2019 film "Yesterday."

    What Robert doesn't know is that he is in for a universe-hopping adventure of his own...

    With a supernatural second chance to write the script that was "stolen" from him, will he make something of his trust-fund do-nothing life? Will his boyfriend, Dev, be the same across the multiverse? Will saucy new flings arise as the universe twists and turns the relationships in Robert's life?

    This fast-paced farce pokes fun at pipedreams, procrastinations, and the phoniness inside us all.

    Jaiden's a journalist trying to make ends meet.
    Topher's just here to party.

    But this booze-fueled party plane is not what it seems. The destination is ever-changing. Food is running out. We may never touch ground -- and we're yet to see our beloved superstar.

    But this booze-fueled party plane is not what it seems. The destination is ever-changing. Food is running out. We may never touch ground -- and we're yet to see our beloved superstar.

    Once this flight of fancy takes off, the question remains: will these party people ever get back to ground-level?
