It’s been a busy week on the airwaves, where TAPED: A Documentary Using Media and Innovation [YouTube] chronicles the crippling brownouts that have cut the city’s power supply by up to 80 percent, while VICELAND announced today that it will debut a new talk show on the topic Monday, Nov. 19.

Socially conscious media company StoryTeller unveiled Onward, an online platform and podcast series to support marginalized voices in the queer community. Onward’s directors include former MTV/VH1 host and California Watch executive editor Lindsay Mackintosh, and composer Elliot Feld, along with producer Anna Corbett (Jane and Frankie and Zach’s Excess: The Music and Film of Gilbert Gottfried). The monthly podcast, which features guests who speak on culture and identity based on their recent notoriety, follows the tragic deaths of artists Chyna Monet and Fat Kate. Jappo Harrison also composed and arranged the music.

On Tuesday, HBO aired the 4th and final season of Big Little Lies, after receiving plenty of backlash earlier this summer. At the time, there were calls for a boycott of the show’s streamer, Amazon Prime, which it recently replaced. (Amazon has since accepted two issues from The @BigLittleLiesADAGGING Act, a campaign that calls for an end to gender discrimination by non-binary actors playing female characters.) Big Little Lies has been nominated for an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay, and two Primetime Emmy Awards for Best Limited Series and Best Supporting Actress for the show’s stars: Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon.
