Shonda Rhimes fans, rejoice! iHeartRadio and Shondaland Audio are welcoming Shondaland’s first-ever scripted series this week. “#Matter” is a scripted series about the aftermath of police brutality. When Gerald Hayes (Amin Joseph, FX’s Snowfall) witnesses his teenage son Niles’ (Nile Bullock) brutal beating by police officers, a split-second decision leads him to be barricaded with one of the officers in a nearby restaurant. As the situation deteriorates and the press paints Niles as the offender, Gerald fights for justice for his late son using the one tool at his disposal at that moment: social media. Told through the lens of an investigative reporter, Kate Bell (Gemma Walsh, How to Get Away With Murder), follow the events of that fateful afternoon a year later through interviews, found surveillance footage and more. Head over to iHeartRadio to hear the high-stakes, pulse-pounding premiere episode of “#Matter,” featuring Snoop Dogg as well as other star cast members, streaming now!
Last but, but certainly not least, it’s time to get the facts. “In Fact with Chelsea Clinton,” a talk-show style series dedicated to exploring the truth, is kicking off its sophomore season with a special twist. Join Chelsea for Season 2 as she sits down with several trailblazing women in honor of Women’s History Month to discuss what’s possible and how to make the world a safer, healthier, more equitable and just place for all. This week, Chelsea is joined by world-renowned designer and activist Stella McCartney to look at women in the fashion industry, the progress they’ve made toward equality and what needs to happen next. You’ll hear everything about Stella’s journey to running her own label, pushing the industry to design with more sustainability in mind, and also, what it was like to design Minnie Mouse’s empowering new pantsuit after nearly a century of the character wearing only dresses.
