On January 18, 2018, Freeform unveiled a new logo and slogan, \"A Little Forward\", which officially debuted on March 6, 2018. The new slogan reflects refinements to the network's programming direction, with a larger focus on \"forward-looking\" series (such as The Bold Type and the Black-ish spin-off Grown-ish). President Tom Ascheim explained that with the rebranding, Freeform was \"purposefully and passionately moving our brand forward by defying expectations and dismantling conventions; busting stereotypes of theme, cast and culture in service to a more inclusive world on and off screen.\" The network also unveiled upcoming series in development, such as Scott Stewart's Augs, as well as a new trailer and June 7, 2018 premiere date for Marvel's Cloak and Dagger.

The channel also produces its own original made-for-TV movies (targeting a slightly older audience than those aired by sister network Disney Channel); some of Freeform's most popular original movies include Night of the Twisters (the channel's first original movie, which premiered in 1996 during its existence as The Family Channel), Holiday in Handcuffs, the Au Pair trilogy, Ice Angel, and Cyberbully (which premiered on the channel under either the Fox Family or ABC Family identities). As Freeform, the channel has had original movies such as Angry Angel, The Truth About Christmas, Life-Size 2, No Sleep 'Til Christmas, Turkey Drop, and Ghosting: The Spirit of Christmas. ABC Family, the channel has also recently been generating high levels of viewers with its weekend movie events; the \"Harry Potter Weekend\" block in July 2009 generated some of the highest levels of viewers for its weekend events for the year to date. ABC Family's airing of The Hunger Games on October 10, 2014, was one of the channel's most watched telecasts for a single film, being seen by nearly 1.9 million viewers.
With the 2006 introduction of new shows to the network by Disney, some parents reacted negatively to ABC Family's programming, feeling that the network has gone from family-friendly to \"too risqué,\" and that content in shows such as Greek, The Secret Life of the American Teenager, The Fosters, and Becoming Us was far too racy for family viewing. Some critics claimed that ABC Family executives were only after attracting viewers, without concern about showing young people in questionable scenarios in its series and films. The main focus of the criticism was on teenage pregnancy, underage drinking, and LGBT-related issues. The channel's programming content standards had changed several years earlier after the sale of the channel by Pat Robertson and International Family Entertainment. The channel had even aired some acquired series and movies that contained profanity, violence, and sexual content or dialogue after the sale to News Corporation, only running this programming somewhat more so since being purchased by The Walt Disney Company as it chose to refocus the channel more towards a teen and young adult audience to reduce programming redundancy with its existing family-, children-, and teen-oriented cable network Disney Channel. Parental advisory tags had aired at the beginning of some TV-14 rated programs aired on the channel in recent years,[when?] such as That '70s Show and some episodes of The Secret Life of the American Teenager, Pretty Little Liars, Twisted, and The Fosters.
Parents need to know that Love, Victor is a series that's set in the same world as the movie Love, Simon. Like Simon in the original movie, Victor (Michael Cimino) is a high school student who's pretty sure he's not strictly heterosexual and struggles with accepting his own sexuality and coming out to family and friends. Mature content is on the light side, with a few exceptions, including an episode in which teens play a drinking game and one gets drunk. Expect storylines about LGBTQ issues and both same- and opposite-sex kissing, dating, and romance, as well as references to (off-screen) sex, including an episode in which teens attend a party organized around hooking up. Characters vary in their sexual identity, gender identity and presentation, race, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status. Victor's family is Latinx and frequently speaks Spanish at home; they also have conservative viewpoints and struggle with financial security. Language is infrequent, but \"hell,\" \"ass,\" and \"s--t,\" are all heard, and characters use the word \"gay\" as an insult. Themes revolve around accepting yourself and others, and characters demonstrate significant courage and integrity in finding ways to live authentically yet still maintain bonds with family and friends.
Amazon Prime Video has such a huge library of TV shows and movies to watch that trying to decide what's actually good can be an exhausting task. That's why we're here! The most recent additions we've given our seal of approval to include Aaron Sorkin's Being the Ricardos, which stars Nicole Kidman and Javier Bardem as Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, the holiday rom-com series With Love, the sixth and final season of the sci-fi series The Expanse, the Riz Ahmed-starring alien movie Encounter, and more. If none of those speak to you, our list of recommendations is pretty wide-ranging, so we're pretty confident that you'll find something else you like.
There's nothing like the sheer go-for-broke joy of watching Alias when it's firing on all cylinders, which is why it's always so exciting when the ABC series returns to streaming (even if most of its original music had to be changed due to licensing issues). J.J. Abrams' high-octane early-2000s spy drama follows Jennifer Garner's Sydney Bristow, a grad student who moonlights as a globe-trotting double agent for the CIA, as she hacks into servers while wearing colorful wigs and tries to make it home in time for midterms. The early seasons, in particular, are thrilling, twisty, and powerfully emotional in a way that grounds the show's campier side. It's no surprise that Alias began with Abrams daydreaming about how fun it would be if Felicity from Felicity turned out to be a secret spy, a prophecy that would later be fulfilled by Keri Russell's turn in The Americans. The Americans is also great and also on Amazon; watch them both for the perfect spy double feature. -Kelly Connolly [Trailer] 076b4e4f54
