Own The Room
Five students from disparate corners of the planet take their big ideas to Macau, China, host of one of the most prestigious entrepreneurship competitions in the world, the Global Student Entrepreneur Awards. Santosh is from a small farming town in Nepal; Alondra works the register at her family’s bakery in Puerto Rico; Henry is a programming wiz from Nairobi; Jason is a marketing machine from Greece; and Daniela is an immigrant escaping the crisis in Venezuela, taking on the chemical industry from her lab at NYU. They’ve each overcome immense obstacles in pursuit of their dreams, from hurricanes to poverty to civil unrest. Their ideas have already changed their own lives, but are they ready to change the world?
Marvel Studios: Legends
“Marvel Studios: Legends” serves as an exciting refresher for the various heroes and villains making their way to the highly anticipated streaming shows premiering on Disney+, setting the stage for the upcoming adventures. The episodes will feature Falcon, Winter Soldier, Zemo, and Sharon Carter.
Disney Secrets of Sulphur Springs: Long Time Gone
Griffin and Harper are grounded after they are caught together outside of The Tremont. Soon after, they sneak back through the portal with the hope of still finding Savannah.
Disney Junior Doc McStuffins: The Doc Is In
Dottie McStuffins puts on her stethoscope and starts fixing toys and dolls, as she wants to become a doctor like her mother.
Disney My Music Story: Perfume
“Disney My Music Story-Perfume” sees Perfume performing Disney classics and their own music, including “Polyrhythm” which featured in “Cars 2”. The trio tell their own stories and links to Disney.
Dr. K’s Exotic Animal ER (s1 – s8)
In the varied forms of veterinary medicine, Dr. Susan Kelleher’s practice may be one of the more unusual. Known as Dr. K, she runs South Florida’s Broward Avian and Exotics Animal Hospital, and this series follows the staff as it cares for rabbits, ferrets, foxes, fish, birds, reptiles, marsupials, and even primates. As do some other vets, Kelleher thinks domesticating wild animals like monkeys is a bad idea, but that feeling doesn’t interfere with her taking care of them: “If it will fit through the door, I’ll treat it,” she says.
Dr. Oakley, Yukon Vet (s8)
Making house calls in the far reaches of Northern Canada is a daunting task in the least, considering the houses may be separated by hundreds of miles. That challenge doesn’t stop Dr. Michelle Oakley from performing her many duties as a veterinarian in one of the most rugged environments on Earth. In addition to running an animal clinic out of her home in Haines Junction, Yukon — where she lives with husband Shane and their three daughters — Dr. Oakley also operates a satellite clinic 150 miles away and is the on-call vet for the Yukon Wildlife Preserve, which is about 100 miles from Haines Junction. She also makes house calls, sometimes driving for long stretches through desolate wilderness to check on a patient. This series documents how Dr. Oakley juggles being a full-time vet, wife and mom, and does so with a sense of humor and devotion.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children
A young boy named Jake discovers a house full of children with supernatural powers run by Miss Peregrine. Soon, he must help protect their home from terrifying enemies called Hollowgasts.
