Hulu is developing a series titled Redemption Ink from Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson. The potential series would follow a tattoo shop that helps cover up gang tattoos to help individuals redeem their lives. 

ESPN’s latest 30 for 30 “The American Gladiators Documentary” about the reality competition series premieres May 30 and 31. From 1989 to 1996, American Gladiators was one of the most popular syndicated programs in television, a competition show that predated the reality TV era but used many of the same techniques to attract viewers. Every week, “amateur” contestants would go up against a cast of “professional” gladiators in a range of physical competitions, setting up David versus Goliath matchups that were popular with big television audiences but also earned considerable criticism for being “crash TV”. The show’s cast and crew look back on it all, with their memories complicated by regret over what it did to many of the gladiators’ lives. And as the behind-the-scenes story of the series is told, the central, most compelling character of the story is clear: Johnny Ferraro, the creator of American Gladiators, a former Elvis impersonator from Erie, PA who came to Hollywood with a dream of putting the show on screen and ended up with a singular success. 

Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace? returns for season three on HBO Max and CNN April 28.

Highly anticipated guests for the upcoming third season also include Carol Burnett, Bill Hader, Jay Leno, Andy Garcia, Miranda Lambert, and many more that will be announced in the weeks ahead.
