Turning into a ‘super-sized’ channel, AXN Beyond will serve up more monthly premieres from many more genres than before. Taking the definition of ‘entertainment’ to the limit, AXN Beyond will go beyond fun, feisty and fabulous with its variety of shows. These range from mystery and suspense, fantasy and science-fiction, paranormal and supernatural, fashion and design, to lifestyle and romance, across drama, variety, reality, sitcom, comedy, talk shows, movies and even music concerts.
Indeed, AXN Beyond hails from the same team that brought Asia its top English general entertainment channel, AXN. As a fresh, hip and energetic TV destination, the new AXN Beyond draws audiences across a wide range of demographics seeking new and exciting entertainment choices, and has its sweet spot among male and female viewers aged 18 – 35.
‘Superduperlicious Tuesdays’ on AXN Beyond!
Viewers are set for ‘Superduperlicious Tuesday’ evenings as AXN Beyond serves up a back-to-back series of the channel’s very latest shows, all premiering on Tuesday, December 7, 2010! The fun begins with reality talk show The Marriage Ref, as celebrities such as Madonna, Demi Moore and Gwyneth Paltrow pass judgement on real-life couples’ marriages.
That leads to light-hearted series like Drop Dead Diva Season 2 which continues the life of shallow model Deb (Brooke Elliott) whose soul ends up in the body of a brilliant, plus-size attorney. The night’s fun culminates in AXN Beyond’s headliner of the month – fresh new legal comedic drama The Defenders which stars Jim Belushi (According to Jim) and Jerry O’Connell (Sliders) as colourful Las Vegas defence attorneys.
Beyond Fun, Feisty & Fabulous
In the same month, AXN Beyond will bring on some of television’s most compelling stories in its latest drama offerings. Viewers will be captivated by the intrigue in Caprica, prequel to Battlestar Galactica and television’s first science-fiction family saga. Audiences will also get caught in the suspense of Persons Unknown, a mystery drama following seven trapped strangers whose every move is watched.
Reality entertainment on AXN Beyond is far from the usual stuck-on-an-island-fighting-for-survival shows, but is fun-to-watch yet nail-biting fare. Fierce competition, over-the-top backstabbing and catfights in reality series await in Top Chef Masters and The Rachel Zoe Project, while The Real Housewives of New York Season 2 sneaks a peek into the lavish lifestyles of the rich in the Big Apple.
Adding more than a dash of glitz and glamour is Scream 2010, the world’s first and only awards show celebrating the best in science-fiction, fantasy, comics and horror. Music lovers will enjoy Beyoncé I Am... Yours, a spectacular ‘live’ concert by singer-songwriter Beyoncé Knowles’ at Wynn Las Vegas.
With all that and more, viewers will surely adore the all-new, all awesome entertainment experience with the latest shows across the greatest variety of genres, unveiling this December on the fresh, hip and super-sized AXN Beyond.
Premieres December 7, 2010, airing Tuesdays 9.50pm first and exclusively on AXN Beyond
The Defenders is a comedic drama about two colourful Las Vegas defence attorneys who go all-in when it comes to representing their clients. Nick (Jim Belushi, According to Jim) and Pete (Jerry O’Çonnell, Sliders, Crossing Jordan) are the local go-to guys with an eclectic client list who are still looking to hit their own jackpot.
Leading the law firm of Morelli & Kaczmarek are Nick Morelli, an earnest, hard-charging attorney who represents his clients to the best of his ability, no matter how big or small the case; and his partner, Pete Kaczmarek, whose passion for the law is matched only by his love of fast cars, beautiful women and expensive clothes.
Joining them in their growing law practice is new associate Lisa Tyler (Jurnee Smollett, The Great Debaters), an enthusiastic young attorney looking to put her exotic dancing days behind her; and their young assistant, Sophie (Tanya Fischer, Life On Mars), a spunky and sweet ingénue who is eager to please her bosses.
Begins Dec 9, 2010, 10pm in a two-episode TV premiere event, with subsequent episodes airing Thursdays 10pm on AXN Beyond
Set 50 years before Battlestar Galactica, Caprica follows two rival families – the Graystones and the Adamas. Bound together by tragedy, their ensuing struggle will determine the fate of the 12 Colonies. Caprica is a society rife with advanced technology. Little do they know they are trembling on the brink of the creation of the first cybernetic life-form node, or ‘CYLON’.
The Graystones and Adamas come from different cultures and wildly different socio-economic backgrounds. Daniel Graystone (Eric Stoltz) is a computer genius and the leading businessman of the 12 Colonies. His wife, Amanda Graystone (Paula Malcolmson) is an elite neurosurgeon. Joseph Adama (Esai Morales) is an immigrant, a lawyer with ties to the mob, and a father who is desperate to reconnect with his estranged son, William (Sina Najafi). Their bitter rivalry will bring the end of life as they know it. Their children are the future.
