FEATURED PROGRAMMING
 
THE SYNANON FIX
HBO Original Documentary Series
Debuts April 1 at 9pm ET, 4 Episodes

ALEX EDELMAN: JUST FOR US
HBO Original Comedy Special
Debuts April 6 at 10pm ET
Logline: After an acclaimed, extended run on Broadway, comedian Alex Edelman brings his solo show JUST FOR US to HBO and Max in an all-new comedy special. In the wake of a string of anti-Semitic threats pointed in his direction online, Edelman decides to go straight to the source – specifically, Queens, where he covertly attends a meeting of White Nationalists and comes face-to-face with the people behind the keyboards. What happens next forms the backbone of the shockingly relevant, utterly hilarious, timely, and only moderately perspirant stories that comprise JUST FOR US.
Credits: Performed and executive produced by Alex Edelman; directed and executive produced by Alex Timbers; executive produced by Mike Birbiglia; and executive produced by Above Average’s Marc Lieberman and Ally Engelberg.
 
BRANDY HELLVILLE & THE CULT OF FAST FASHION
HBO Original Documentary
Debuts April 9 at 9pm ET
Logline: Fashion is identity for teenage girls and one brand, Brandy Melville, has developed a cult-like following despite its controversial “one size fits most” tagline and some unsavory practices. Hiding behind a shiny Instagram façade is a shockingly toxic world, and a broader reflection of the global fast fashion industry.  Fast fashion isn’t all glitz and glamor – it’s an exploitative business that pollutes the planet for the sake of profit.
Credits: Directed by Eva Orner. Produced by Jonathan Chinn, Simon Chinn and Eva Orner.
