American Underdog tells the inspirational true story of Kurt Warner (Zachary Levi), who went from a stockboy at a grocery store to a two-time NFL MVP, Super Bowl champion, and Hall of Fame quarterback. The film centers on Warner’s unique story and years of challenges and setbacks that could have derailed his aspirations to become an NFL player – but just when his dreams seemed all but out of reach, it is only with the support of his wife, Brenda (Anna Paquin) and the encouragement of his family, coaches, and teammates that Warner perseveres and finds the strength to show the world the champion that he already is. American Underdog is an uplifting story that demonstrates that anything is possible when you have faith, family, and determination.

We loved the first season and are thrilled season two is arriving real soon on Amazon Prime Video!
Season two picks up from the events of the season one finale which saw Robyn’s work and home life collide catastrophically when she could no longer resist the temptations of her myriad of addictions. She has sacked PR intern Melody (Rebecca Benson, The White Princess) – for her own good – but closer relationships could be damaged beyond repair. Will Eve (Lydia Wilson, Requiem) ever forgive Robyn, and on a broader scale, will Mills Paulson PR ever be the same again? Their boss Caroline (Sophie Okonedo, Chimerica) has bigger fish to fry in a shakeup that could change her business forever. Throughout all this, the team will continue to keep the outrageous indiscretions of their celebrity clients firmly behind closed doors.
Season two also welcomes guest stars Sam Neill (Jurassic Park and Peaky Blinders), Daniel Dae Kim (Lost, Hawaii 5.0), Martha Plimpton (The Good Wife), Jane Horrocks (Absolutely Fabulous), Doon Mackichan (Smack the Pony), Kevin Bishop (In the Long Run) and Paul Ready (Motherland). Stephen Moyer directs Episode 5 & 6. Arinze Kene, Marc Warren and Amanda Abbington return as guest stars.
Season 2 of FLACK arrives June 11, 2021 on Amazon Prime Video.
A superb Cast highlights FLACK, coming soon to Amazon Prime Video. Check-out this brand-new Trailer!
The six-episode first season also stars Sophie Okonedo (Chimerica) who plays Robyn’s boss, Caroline. Formidable and highly capable, this alpha woman takes no prisoners and makes no excuses. But is she hiding a softer side? Lydia Wilson (Requiem) plays Robyn’s best friend, Eve. She is her outspoken and provocative colleague who will have her loyalty pushed to the limits when worlds collide. Rebecca Benson (The White Princess) plays intern Melody. Young and naïve, she has attached herself to very unsuitable role models. Guest stars include Max Beesley, Marc Warren, Alan Davies, Katherine Kelly, Darren Boyd, Kadiff Kirwan, Jane Horrocks and Bradley Whitford in the penultimate 5th episode. Flack is a dark and brazen comedy with loveable antiheroes who will shock you with their self-destruction – but have you rooting for them anyway.

FLACK arrives January 22, 2021 on Amazon Prime Video.
There aren’t many awards which Canadian-born Actress Anna Paquin hasn’t earned. The Winnipeg-born star has the distinction of being the second-youngest actress ever to win an Oscar for her work in Jane Campion‘s 1993 Film The Piano, and also a Golden Globe Award win too for her popular role in acclaimed HBO Series True Blood as Sookie Stackhouse. In addition to recent work starring in CBC series Alias Grace and Bellevue, the latter which brought her to Toronto earlier this year, Paquin has a high-profile recurring role as Rogue on the X-Men Franchise.
Despite being based in America, Paquin gets a heroine’s welcome home being honoured with a star on Canada’s Walk of Fame. She sees herself honoured alongside national treasures like two-time Olympic Champion Donovan Bailey and Scientist/Activist David Suzuki. Receiving inductions post-humously are Humanitarian Viola Desmond (seen on our most recent $10 note), Telecommunications Pioneer Ted Rogers, and Musician Stompin’ Tom Connors (Cineplex Legends Inductee). JUNO Winner Shawn Hook received this year’s Allan Slaight Honour.
Paquin arrived at the 19th edition of the ceremony glamorous in shimmering flower adornments and black (dress by Pamella Roland), husband Stephen Moyer opening the door for her as she exited her SUV like the perfect gentleman he is. She now can count herself among the 173 notables honoured with stars along the walkways of Toronto’s Entertainment District. Singer/Songwriter Jann Arden filled Gala hosting duties.
Paquin and Moyer (born Emery) both recently collaborated together on upcoming Film The Parting Glass, filmed here in Toronto. Moyer directs, with their True Blood Co-Star Denis O’Hare penning the Script.
Beyond Famous: Canada’s Walk of Fame, an hour-long Documentary hosted by past Inductee Eric McCormack, airs on Global TelevisionSunday, December 3, 2017 at 8 PM ET.
