On the heels of hosting the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, comedian Michelle Wolf is heading to Netflix for her new weekly half hour variety/sketch series “The Break with Michelle Wolf” starting Sunday, May 27. The streaming service released a sneak peek video, nodding to the vague nature of “strong female leads.” Watch below.

GREENLIGHTS

CNN Films has announced their collaboration with Academy Award-winning director Roger Ross Williams on new documentary feature, “American Jail.” The film will investigate America’s mass incarceration crisis, slated to premiere on Sunday, July 1 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CNN. “I’m very excited to bring this film to CNN Films’ audiences. Our criminal justice system is broken on many levels, and I believe that it is essential for every American to understand what is at stake: tax payers’ dollars, the economy, human potential, and human lives,” said Williams.

The new Fab Five, Antoni Porowski (Food & Wine), Bobby Berk (Interior Design), Karamo Brown (Culture), Jonathan Van Ness (Grooming), and Tan France (Fashion) are coming back to uplift eight new heroes in the next season of “Queer Eye.” Season 2 launches globally on Netflix on June 15.
