October CraveTV Highlights

CraveTV’s compelling fall lineup continues in October with all new programming anchored by SHOWTIME’s new comedy series WHITE FAMOUS. New series, documentaries, and specials that begin streaming in October include:

  • Debuting with a special two-episode premiere, CraveTV presents the new half-hour comedy WHITE FAMOUS, from executive producer Jamie Foxx and starring SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE alum Jay Pharoah. Pharoah stars as talented young comedian Floyd Mooney, a star on the rise forced to navigate the treacherous waters of maintaining his credibility as he begins to cross over into the world of becoming “white famous.” WHITE FAMOUS is a collaboration between writer and showrunner Tom Kapinos (CALIFORNICATION) and Academy Award®-winner Foxx, who also guest stars and whose experiences inspired the show. The series begins streaming Sunday, October 15 with two back-to-back episodes at 10 and 10:30 p.m. ET, day-and-date with SHOWTIME in the U.S.
  • New episodes of STAR TREK: DISCOVERY continue streaming Monday nights at 8 p.m. ET as part of CraveTV’s exclusive Canadian streaming window for the series. STAR TREK: DISCOVERY follows the voyages of Starfleet on their missions to discover new worlds and new lifeforms, and for one Starfleet officer who must learn that to truly understand all things alien, you must first understand yourself.
  • From SHOWTIME, the powerful new eight-part documentary series, ACTIVE SHOOTER: AMERICA UNDER FIRE, delivers an in-depth exploration of mass shootings and their devastating consequences. From the first-hand perspective of survivors, the families of the victims, witnesses, and heroic first responders, the series goes beyond the sensationalistic coverage to offer a comprehensive report on these tragic events. New episodes of ACTIVE SHOOTER: AMERICA UNDER FIRE begin streaming Friday nights at 9 p.m. ET, day-and-date with SHOWTIME in the U.S.
  • CraveTV’s incomparable Music Collection gets a boost in October with the SHOWTIME concert film PRINCE: SIGN O’ THE TIMES, streaming Sunday, October 1 at 9 p.m. ET. Created as a companion to the 1987 Prince album of the same name, the film features live performances of some of the artist’s most famous songs, and captures him at a critical juncture in his career: immediately after the disbanding of his group The Revolution and on the heels of Purple Rain and Under the Cherry Moon.
  • HBO’s riveting four-part documentary series THE DEFIANT ONES begins streaming Friday, October 6. From director Allen Hughes, the series tells the true story of music legends Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine, two street-smart men from different worlds who have shaped many of the most exciting and extreme moments in recent pop culture. Also includes interviews with music icons like Snoop Dogg, Bruce Springsteen, Gwen Stefani, Bono, Eminem, and more.
  • NEMR: NO BOMBING IN BEIRUT begins streaming Saturday, October 7 at 11 p.m. ET, day-and-date with SHOWTIME in the U.S. Filmed in Lebanon and the United States, this one-hour comedy special features comedian Nemr as he gets audiences laughing about his childhood, family, relationships, religion, war, and the power of perspective.
  • As Torontonians gear up for opening night of Jim Steinman’s Bat Out Of Hell The Musical on October 14, CraveTV presents a special presentation of the documentary, MEAT LOAF: IN AND OUT OF HELL. The film provides a candid profile of rock legend Meat Loaf through personal testimony and interviews from family, friends and fellow musicians. MEAT LOAF: IN AND OUT OF HELL begins streaming Friday, October 13.

  • Just in time for Halloween, the final 10 episodes of TEEN WOLF begin streaming Friday, October 13. In the final episodes, as the pack get ready for college, they discover a new enemy rising in the shadows that threatens the fate of everything they hold dear.
  • In addition to titles listed above, #iCraveFridays continues in October with: the BEST OF W5, featuring highlights from the archives of Canada’s longest-running and most-watched current affairs program; the third and final season of the supernatural horror series SALEM; chilling documentaries DEMON EXORCIST, MYSTERY OF THE ALASKAN MUMMIES, and WEREWOLVES: THE DARK SURVIVORS and the HBO documentary CLASS DIVIDE, a timely look at the widening divide between the haves and have nots on October 6; and Season 8 of MASTERCHEF, featuring Gordon Ramsay, which begins streaming on October 27 the first time the series has streamed on CraveTV.
