Raise your glass, because Brew Dogs is coming back for a second season.
The show follows Scottish renegades James Watt and Martin Dickie as they visit different American beer towns to celebrate craft beers and create their own locally-inspired drafts, including stops in Chicago, Las Vegas, and New Orleans. We’ve got an exclusive first look at the Las Vegas episode, in which James and Martin create the world’s most expensive brew. The key ingredient?

Why should the housewives have all the fun?
Esquire Network has ordered 10 episodes of a brotastic take on the Real Housewives franchise. Lucky Bastards follows the escapades of six life-long New York City friends. The series is from True Entertainment, the producers of Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta and its multiple spin-offs, among other projects.
The cast includes former Bachelor Lorenzo Borghese – you know the one who also happens to be an Italian Prince? Lorenzo’s friends include Rocco, the son of a women’s fashion tycoon trying to start his own premium denim line; Craig, the occasional break dancer/cosmetics executive; Adam, who wants to settle down after moving back to New York from LA; Charles, the only one with a serious girlfriend who just started a vodka brand; and Scott, an independent wealth manager with so many women surrounding him at all times, his friends call them the “Scottourage”.
Esquire Network is the new upscale male-targeted, lifestyle channel that replaced Style Network five months ago. Lucky Bastards is the network’s 14th original series.
The Wrap first reported the news.
Friday Night Tykes, Esquire Network’s docuseries about youth football in San Antonio, Texas, is completely fascinating. I’ve already been sucked into the world of mini-footballers, crazy parents, coaches, and “momagers” that make up the rotating cast of characters. But this exclusive clip from next week’s all-new episode particularly won me over. It introduces Grayson Christian, an autistic boy who’s given the chance to score a touchdown for his team. Break out your tissues, and then check out Friday Night Tykes on Tuesdays at 9 p.m.

Clear eyes. Full hearts. Can’t lose. Because if you do, the coach is not going to be happy. Football is king in Texas, and Esquire Network’s original 10-part docuseries Friday Night Tykes gives viewers an inside look at the world of youth football in the San Antonio region. The show follows five teams from the Texas Youth Football Association (TYFA) on and off the field throughout the 2013 season. It’s basically Friday Night Lights with 8 and 9 year olds.
TLC made its mark with Toddlers & Tiaras, drumming up controversy about parents living vicariously through their children. And Friday Night Tykes will likely have a similar effect. The show will tackle serious questions like: How much competition is too much? Is the sport safe for young children? And at what price are we pushing our kids to win? Regardless of the answers, it’s fascinating to watch. Need more proof? In this exclusive clip, Lisa Connell, the “momager” of the Jr. Broncos says she was done with the “everybody gets a trophy” and a “fair chance” league and was ready for her son, Colby, to take on the competition at the next level.
