High on the Hog
High on the Hog will return for a second season on Netflix
Netflix has ordered a second season of High on the Hog, the critically acclaimed series that celebrates the courage, artistry and resourcefulness of African Americans that helped define the American kitchen.
The series got a perfect 100% from critics on Rotten Tomatoes, and Esquire called the show “revolutionary.”
Between the World and Me
Humanize the experience
“What’s important is this dialogue, not to internalize it, but to let it out and discuss and deal with that pain and that fear that we all feel,” says executive Producer Roger Ross Williams about the HBO event Between the World and Me, based on Ta-Nehisi Coates’ bestseller.
“What Between the World and Me does, is it really humanizes our experiences, and how we’re American, and we just want what everyone else wants. Maybe it can help better understand who we are as black people, and what we mean to this country.”

Emerging talent on Topic
One Story up is over the moon to present its namesake series One Story Up in collaboration with streaming platform Topic. Introducing emerging talent through a series of curated shorts, Roger Ross Williams says: “I am thrilled to introduce the industry to great filmmakers and innovative storytelling, and for a series which will provide more industry access for diverse and underrepresented communities.”
“Every film is personal.”
