The pay cabler also unveiled debut dates for a slew of original documentaries. First up is the Rosie O’Donnell-produced Don’t Divorce Me! Kids’ Rules for Parents on Divorce, which premieres Sept. 20, followed by The Latino List: Volume 2 on Sept. 24, a flick centering on the “vibrant and flourishing” Hispanic American culture.

Rory Kennedy’s documentary, Ethel, which celebrates the life of the beloved Kennedy, airs Oct. 18, while the Sundance fave The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia bows Oct. 29 and Witness, a movie that highlights photographers in various conflict zones across the globe, will bow in November. Lastly, The Lady of Rangoon, a profile on the leader of the democracy movement in Burma, debuts in December.

  2. Jake says:

    Confused why Girls is being moved to January. It was in a nice, plush, post-Game of Thornes, awards-friendly (and not so much competition) slot in April-June. I feel like moving it earlier might weaken its ratings and award chances.

    But I guess the thought process more here is to try and pull Enlightened’s terrible ratings up? Let’s just hope Girls is strong enough to do so.

    • Kevin says:

      Its because since Luck was cancelled they had nothing to fill its slot in January. Girls and Enlightened are taking its place and will be the only oringinal content on HBO in January.

    As long as Lena has enough time to make it awesome, I’m 100% behind this

  5. Joanne says:

    I still can’t believe that Girls garbage got a second season.

  6. Dizzle says:

    Wow…. I don’t think I’ll remember what happened on Enlightened last season by the time it comes back! I hope they stick in one helluva “Previously On…”! I guess they figure the ratings can’t get any worse…
