Viacom's new Paramount Network launched in January with a promise of delivering premium scripted content without the premium price tag. The initial offerings include an array of big-budget, high-quality and buzzworthy shows including Waco, Yellowstone, American Woman and Heathers. The aim for the network is to reinvent itself by shedding its "bro-tastic" reputation as Spike and retain its more elevated programming. This direction for Paramount is perhaps best personified by the upcoming six-part docu-series Rest in Power – The Trayvon Martin Story, set to debut in July.
