True spies never die – on FOX Crime at least. Screen Actors Guild Award® winner Sean Bean is back for the second season of Legends to spy another day, with 10 new episodes premièring on DStv Channel 126 and StarSat Channel 132 on Thursdays from 5 November at 20:30 CAT.
The second gripping season of the spy drama is hot on the heels of its U.S. screening and has Bean once again in his role as Martin Odum, an undercover agent working for the FBI’s Deep Cover Operations (DCO) division. Martin has the uncanny ability to transform himself into a different person for each job that he is assigned to.
This season sees the spy series completely re-imagined with a new supporting cast, more exotic locations and with a whole new approach to storytelling.
In addition to Bean, the new season stars Winter Ave Zoli (Sons of Anarchy), Steve Kazee (Shameless), Aisling Franciosi (The Fall), Kelly Overton (True Blood), Klara Issova (Crossing Lines) and Ralph Brown (Agent Carter). Morris Chestnut (Nurse Jackie, Rosewood) will guest star on several episodes, reprising his role from season one.
The season one finale became a race against time as Martin and the DCO tracked down the mysterious figure named John Cameron and uncovered his plans to infiltrate the US Government.
This led to Martin being kidnapped while investigating and led to a shocking discovery about his own identity.
Can Odum figure out the answers he needs to clear his name before his past catches up to him?
Over on NGC, on DStv Channel 181, each Sunday in November will be a month of BREAKTHROUGH at 20:05 CAT.
National Geographic Channel and GE partnered to present this six part series that put Hollywood Visionaries Angela Bassett, Peter Berg, Paul Giamatti, Akiva Goldsman, Ron Howard and Brett Ratner in the director’s seat.
This ground-breaking show provides a thought-provoking and imaginative perspective on scientific discovery as it unfolds.
Each episode follows scientific explorers working on cutting-edge projects with breakthrough potential: transformative tools that solve pressing problems (for example, developing an Ebola vaccine, finding a way to stop brain seizure, or bringing a new method of collecting water to an African village devastated by draught).
The core belief of the series, reflected in every story, is that unleashing the creative potential of talented people can result in revolutionary change.
When humans put their imagination to work, anything is possible.
While the world faces many challenges, modern science and technology can and will meet those challenges –and in the process, reveal the deepest workings of the universe.
While the breakthrough itself provides the heartbeat for the hour, the vision of the explorers in front of the camera and the directors behind it merge to create a unique lens through which the breakthrough is experienced.
The episodes explore remarkable breakthroughs in brain science, longevity, water, energy, pandemics and cyborg technology.
Howard directs the longevity episode, Giamatti investigates the latest in technology, Ratner explores the brain, Berg tackles pandemics, Bassett deals with water issues and Goldsman will bring us energy.
