On Tour with Asperger’s Are Us – Available November 4
Challenging themselves to leave their comfort zones, Noah, Ethan, Jack and New Michael embark on their most ambitious venture yet: a six-week, multi-city journey from Boston to Los Angeles, along the way sharing their unique perspectives on life as an “Aspie” and the community they’ve found in performing together as a comedy troupe. [The documentary series] follows the team…as they travel in an old RV that often leaves them stranded. The four endure highs and lows, playing for alternately enthusiastic audiences and nearly empty houses.
On Tour with Asperger’s Are Us is executive produced by Jay and Mark Duplass (Room 104, Togetherness).
Our Boys – Available November 11
In the summer of 2014, three Jewish teenagers are kidnapped and murdered by Hamas militants. Israel is shocked, shaken, and furious. Two days later, the burned body of a Palestinian teenager from eastern Jerusalem is found in a forest on the western outskirts of the city. In the ensuing days, an agent from the internal terror division of the Shin Bet investigates the murder, while the parents of the slain teenager begin their long and anguished journey toward justice and consolation. [The series] is based on the true events which led to the outbreak of war in Gaza. [It] follows the investigation of Muhammad Abu Khdeir’s murder, and tells the story of all those involved, Jews and Arabs alike, whose lives were forever changed by these events.
The first season will have 10 episodes. It was created by Hagai Levi, Joseph Cedar, and Tawfik Abu-Wael. Our Boys is a co-production with HBO and KI’s Keshet Studios, and was also produced by Movie Plus.
What’s My Name Muhammad Ali – Available November 18
Exploring Ali’s challenges, confrontations, comebacks and triumphs through recordings of his own voice, What’s My Name Muhammad Ali paints an intimate portrait of a man who was a beacon of hope for oppressed people around the world and, in his later years, was recognized as a global citizen and a symbol of humanity and understanding. In addition to relying on Ali himself to guide viewers through his remarkable journey, [the documentary] features archival footage, some of it previously unseen.
What’s My Name Muhammad Ali is from LeBron James and Maverick Carter’s SpringHill Entertainment. It is directed by Antoine Fuqua (The Equalizer).
The Righteous Gemstones – Available November 18

The series stars Danny McBride, John Goodman, Edi Patterson, and Adam Devine.
Ballers Season Five – Available November 18
Exploring the glamorous, often cutthroat, world of pro football through a group of past and present players striving to stay in the game, Ballers stars Dwayne Johnson as ex-superstar Spencer Strasmore, who has reinvented himself as a financial manager for today’s players.

Ballers also stars John David Washington, Rob Corddry, Omar Miller, Donovan Carter, Troy Garity, London Brown, and Brittany S. Hall.
The Deuce Season Three – Available November 25
Season three…brings us into the world of 1985, just as VHS overtakes film as the primary medium for porn production and distribution. The lure of the California sunshine, the city’s aggressive takeover of commercial sex properties in Times Square and the devastating impact of the AIDS epidemic mark the end of an era. With the party of the 1970s winding down, 42nd Street has deteriorated into a hive of uncontrolled violent crime and seedy video stores, making urban renewal seem more unlikely than ever before. Following the interconnected lives of Times Square’s barkeeps, prostitutes, pimps, police, mobsters, porn actors and producers, [this season] brings the series’ arc to a dramatic conclusion.
Season three of The Deuce will run for eight episodes. The Deuce was created by David Simon and George Pelecanos. It stars James Franco, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Lawrence Gilliard Jr., Margarita Levieva, Emily Meade, Daniel Sauli, Chris Bauer, Chris Coy, and Michael Rispoli.
