In this week’s round-up, new series and documentaries are set to premiere across nets Bravo and History as well as SVOD platform Netflix.

Lavish birthday parties at 40 are the new sweet 16 as far as NBCUniversal cable net Bravo is concerned, as it readies the August 25 debut of My Fab 40th (pictured), at 10 p.m. EST/PST.

Produced by FremantleMedia North America and developed by Purveyors of Pop, the series will feature two former sorority sisters dead set on having their favorite band play their party, a newly outed father’s Hunger Games-themed bash, marriage proposals, vow renewals and “conscious uncoupling.”  The series will include cameos from Rev. Al Sharpton and actors Nicole Eggert and Lorenzo Lamas.

Meanwhile, History has scheduled the Tricon Films & Television-produced Alaskan power grid series Power & Ice for broadcast on August 27 at 10 p.m. EST/PST. The series is to follow the daily activities of three utility companies – Alaska Line Builders, Electric Power Constructors and City Electric – as they battle through sub-zero temperatures to provide the state of Alaska with a steady flow of electricity.

Finally, SVOD service Netflix has announced a September 18 release date for the Morgan Neville-directed documentary on Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards.

Produced by Tremolo Productions and Radical Media, Keith Richards: Under the Influence features rare archival footage, new interviews and music to chronicle the musician’s efforts in recording his first studio album in 23 years, Crosseyed Heart, which comes out the same day.
