Highly decorated special agent Hector Berrellez, who was assigned to lead the DEA’s investigation of Camarena’s murder, peels back the layers of myth and propaganda to reveal the bone-chilling truth about a conspiracy that stretches from the killing fields of Mexico to the halls of power in Washington, D.C. Berrellez’s powerful testimony appears alongside that of Camarena’s brave widow, as well as three Guadalajara Cartel insiders.

Eventually, they became informants for Berrellez and helped him crack the most infamous murder of the War on Drugs.

Saturday

Saturday is the series premiere of The Code on Ovation at 7/6c. Stretching from the spectacular red desert of Australia’s outback to the cool corridors of power in Canberra, The Code tells the story of two very different brothers who unearth information those at the highest levels of political power will kill to keep secret. Ned Banks (Dan Spielman) has spent the last ten years juggling a stalling career as an online journalist with the care of his talented but troubled brother Jesse (Ashley Zukerman). Ned thinks his big break has finally come after coming in contact with Alex Wisham (Lucy Lawless), a local schoolteacher. Two of her students are involved in a car accident; she has phone footage of the crash. With Jesse’s help, Ned is able to clean up the video. Its contents are shocking, and the decision to publish will light the wick on a story too explosive to be contained.

Tonight is also the season finale of Accident, Suicide or Murder on Oxygen at 6/5c.

    Great job providing the highlights for the upcoming week… used to get a scaled down version of this via Entertainment Weekly until they changed their format. Even TV Guide doesn’t provide a weekly update the way you do. I will be a faithful subscriber going forward… it helps to know what to tune in for the upcoming week to stay up-to-date so thanks for putting it together. One question I had was are you able to perhaps provide a link for the “specials” to provide your subscribers with a quick summary of what it’s about … like you do with the premiers? Regardless, great work!!

    • Jenny says:

      Thanks so much! I’m glad you find it helpful! πŸ™‚

      Oof. ALL of them? lol I don’t know… It’s already so very labor intensive. It’s just me, and it takes me literally hours to do the schedule every Saturday. Eek. I can try for some. Some don’t really have links. If I can get info about what it’s about, I’ll try to post summaries like I do with the new series. πŸ™‚

      • tom says:

        Hey Jenny…lol! Please don’t feel it necessary to add the special summaries… it was just a suggestion….I didn’t know it would be more work… I thought you were using pre-established links. Regardless, You provide a great service.

    Hi Jenny πŸ™‚

    Is Wynonna Earp – Season 4, Episode 1 premiere tonight on SyFy?

    • FOJO says:

      *FACEPALM*

      Scratch that, I didnt have my reading glasses on… sorry πŸ˜›

      • Jenny says:

        Oh no, it wasn’t you. LOL I completely forgot to add it (even though I remember reminding myself to do it when I was adding in something else while writing up the schedule). I went back in and added it later. Must have been right around the time you posted. LOL Sorry!

We'd love to know what you think!
