Loot: Season Two

Premieres on April 3 

A year after Molly Wells settles her very public divorce from tech billionaire John Novak, we find her thriving in her role as the head of her philanthropic organisation, the Wells Foundation. Focused mainly on her charity work, Molly has sworn off any new relationships with men. Fabulously single but not particularly independent, Molly keeps her trusty assistant Nicholas by her side. He diligently caters to her every whim … and occasionally feeds her a kale smoothie spiked with gin. Sofia Salinas, the no-nonsense executive director of the Wells Foundation, continues to run things with compassionate efficiency, but her all-business ethos is thrown for a loop when she meets Molly’s charismatic architect friend Isaac. The bromance between Howard and Nicholas also continues to flourish as they support each other in their endeavours both inside and outside the workplace. Meanwhile, Arthur has moved past his feelings for Molly and has adopted a new devil-may-care attitude on life, a change encapsulated by a very lame leather bracelet. The Wells Foundation team, including Rhonda and Ainsley, must pull together as co-workers and friends as Molly strives to publicly live up to her promise of giving away all of her vast fortune.

Girls State

The backdrop of “Girls State” is a country deep in democratic crisis, with civil discourse and electoral politics increasingly fragile under extreme political polarisation. As questions of race and gender equality in a representational democracy reach a fever pitch, these young women confront the complicated paths women must navigate to build political power. Following a distinctly female perspective and filled with teenage insecurity, biting humour and a yearning for true friendship, the young leaders of “Girls State” win hearts and minds — not just elections.
