In the 21st century, most people use the Internet on a daily basis, but there is more to the worldwide network than what is at its surface. This documentary series explores that often-disturbing darker side of the Internet. The dark web, as it's known, was originally intended to be a hidden area where members of the intelligence community could privately meet, but it is increasingly being exploited by online predators and criminals. Each half-hour episode details a particular theme, which include cyberkidnapping, digital warfare, online cults and pornography addiction. "Dark Net" intends to raise thought-provoking conversations about technology and privacy.

Before the internet and viral videos made it easy for aspiring comics to get their material seen, they had to travel and perform at comedy clubs to rise through the ranks of stand-up comedy and make a name for themselves. This drama series explores the famed Los Angeles stand-up scene of the 1970s as the comedy hopefuls stand alone on stage, "dying" for fame, fortune and -- if they're lucky -- a shot on Johnny Carson's show. Oscar winner Melissa Leo leads the ensemble cast as Goldie, a comedy-club owner who mentors a competitive but close-knit group of comics. She leads her business with an iron fist but nurtures the comics with tough love because she knows that there's no such thing as an easy laugh in their chosen profession.
Longtime CBS Sunday night staple "60 Minutes" has become synonymous with investigative journalism since its 1968 debut and has spawned genre-specific variations on a number of cable networks, most of which feature repackaged versions of previously aired "60 Minutes" reports. This monthly, sports-focused version on CBS corporate sibling Showtime bucks the repackaging trend by featuring original reporting from veteran journalists, including lead correspondent Sharyn Alfonsi, longtime sports journalist Armen Keteyian and "60 Minutes" correspondents Anderson Cooper, Lara Logan and Scott Pelley. In addition to original segments, which range in content from investigative reports to interviews and profiles of sports figures, episodes feature updated classic sports stories from the "60 Minutes" archive.
