  • Logline: The definitive untold story exploring the true life details leading up to and chronicling the 51-day siege between the FBI, AFT and David Koresh's spiritual sect, The Branch Davidians, in Waco in 1993.

  • Logline: The Dutton family, led by John Dutton, controls the largest contiguous ranch in the U.S., under constant attack by those at its borders: land developers, an Indian reservation and America's first National Park. The series is described as a study of a violent world far from media scrutiny - where land grabs make developers billions, and politicians are bought and sold by the world's largest oil and lumber corporations. Where drinking water poisoned by fracking wells and unsolved murders are not news, but a consequence of living in the new frontier. It is the best and worst of America seen through the eyes of a family that represents both.
