Created by YouTube personality Hank Green
and Webby Award-winning writer Bernie Su
, this original episodic video and social media series is adapted from the Jane Austen
classic “Pride and Prejudice,”
updated to the modern era of cellphones, video cameras, Twitter, Tumblr and Facebook. Launched in April, the series retells the story across multiple platforms, with YouTube as a home base, starring Ashley Clements, Laura Spencer, Mary Kate Wiles
and Julia Cho.

The Starz original series “Boss” doesn’t return until Aug. 17, but there’s already a short video showing behind-the-scenes action from the second season of the drama starring Golden Globe winner Kelsey Grammer
