Showtime changes on-air schedule for Black Monday & two new docuseries
Showtime has officially announced that they have decided to change the on-air schedule for Don Cheadle’s recently released Black Monday Season 2 and their upcoming two documentary series titled Outcry and Love Fraud. The network’s decision was due to the shows’ sudden temporary production suspensions.
The second season of Black Monday will now shift from two episodes to premiering one episode per week beginning this Sunday, March 22, continuing through Sunday, April 12. While, the scheduled premieres of Outcry and Love Fraud will each move to a future in 2020.
As for the upcoming premieres of Penny Dreadful: City of Angels and the fifth season of Billions, the shows will still remain on their previously scheduled debuts with Penny Dreadful set to make its premiere on on Sunday, April 26 while Billions will be returning on Sunday, May 3.
In addition, Showtime has also released the official trailer for their Emmy-winning documentary series VICE, giving us a preview of the reporting team’s new investigative stories as they tackle untold and complex geopolitical stories from all corners of the globe. The 13-episode season is scheduled to make its debut on March 29, beginning with the first episode featuring exclusive interview with former female ISIS prisoners.

Each half-hour episode will pursue untold stories on the environment, social justice, civil rights and identity. This season, Isobel Yeung reports on the growing human rights crisis in India, where the government has directed the building of detention camps for targeted Muslims. In Dagestan, Alzo Slade explores why the Russian republic has become an incubator for the world’s top wrestlers and MMA fighters. Closer to home, Paola Ramos investigates the Trump Administration’s hardline “Remain in Mexico” immigration mandate that has turned asylum-seekers into a kidnapping commodity for the cartels and traffickers, and Gianna Toboni delves into the horrifying conditions at Mississippi’s Parchman Prison, where more than a dozen inmates have died since last December.
The VICE reporting team includes a diverse group of award-winning journalists, with Suroosh Alvi, Krishna Andavolu, Ben Anderson, Charlet Duboc, Vikram Gandhi, Hind Hassan, Josh Hersh, Hamilton Morris, David Noriega, Paola Ramos, Alzo Slade, Gianna Toboni, Seb Walker and Isobel Yeung reporting from all corners of the globe.
