Anthony Anderson and Mama Doris Headlining Halloween on Discovery+; The Last O.G. Is Back Oct. 26

Anthony Anderson and Doris Bowman - House Hunters

Emmy® nominated actor and producer Anthony Anderson, star of the ABC sitcom black-ish, along with his mom and co-host of ABC's To Tell the Truth, Doris Bowman, will combine their love of all things home—and mischief—to host the new discovery+ series House Haunters. Part of Discovery, Inc.'s cross-brand, month-long Ghostober event that features Halloween and supernatural-inspired programming from the home, food and paranormal genres, the hidden camera real estate and home renovation prank series will be available to stream beginning Thursday, Oct. 7. During the six half-hour episodes, Anthony and Mama Doris will take over properties and devise hilarious gags for unsuspecting house hunters, real estate agents, handymen and even a few HGTV stars, including Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent (The Nate & Jeremiah Home Project) and Brian and Mika Kleinschmidt (100 Day Dream Home).


The Last O.G.

The fourth season of TBS' Brooklyn-centric series The Last O.G. starring Tracy Morgan and co-created by Academy Award® winner Jordan Peele will premiere on Tuesday, October 26 with back-to-back new episodes starting at 10 pm ET/PT. The additional eight episodes will air on Tuesdays at 10:30 pm ET/PT. The Last O.G. has been a perennial Top 10 cable comedy since launch with the most recent season reaching 20 million viewers across TBS' linear and digital platforms.

Last season’s finale saw Tray (Morgan) fall victim to a violent attack, and season four will follow his personal reawakening—with a fresh perspective on his community, new goals, and a distinct set of challenges. It's a new day and a new way for Tray, as he tries to adapt to a changing world so he can do some good for the Brooklyn he loves. The fourth season of The Last O.G. stars Ryan Gaul, Taylor Mosby, Dante Hoagland, Anna Maria Horsford (Amen) and Da'Vine Joy Randolph. Guest stars this season include Janet Hubert (The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air), Malik Yoba (First Wives Club), Wood Harris (The Wire) and Gary Dourdan (CSI: Crime Scene Investigation).
