In the latest edition of the Collins Avenue docuseries (pictured) Abby Lee Miller will launch a national scouting tour, hitting Florida, Georgia and New York City, for young dancers.

Discovery Channel has lined up a third season of Moonshiners, premiering on November 5 at 9 p.m., followed by a new season of Porter Ridge. 

Moonshiners, produced by Magilla Entertainment, looks at the moonshiners across Appalachia to Mississippi, who distill illegal whiskey, as well as the law enforcement looking to capture shiners in the act.

This season will see veteran shiner, Tim Smith, launch a new venture on his own, and past moonshiners return along with new moonshiners from Mississippi.

Gurney Productions’ Porter Ridge returns to the junk yard crew, as they fish, hunt, use dynamite recreationally and have family demolition derbies.

On CNN, Morgan Spurlock’s Inside Man will premiere its second season in the spring with eight episodes. 

Hosted by documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock, the new season will see Spurlock examine celebrity and income disparity among other topics.

Inside Man is produced by Warrior Poets.
