Paradox (Available from 23 March)
A fantasy, a loud poem and a free-spirited tale of music and love, PARADOX is a one-of-a-kind personal expression.

Alexa & Katie is a funny and heartwarming show about two best friends eagerly anticipating the start of their freshman year of high school.

Created by Heather Wordham (Hannah Montana, Reba) with comedy veteran Matthew Carlson (Malcolm In The Middle, Samantha Who?) serving as showrunner, the show’s star is Alexa and Katie’s friendship; whether it be at school, at home, or in the hospital, they are by each other’s side through thick and thin, serving as role models for modern-day female friendships.
