    Luckily, we’ve got your first look at the drama-filled show and trust us, it doesn’t disappoint. Be sure to tune in to Sisterhood of Hip-Hop Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Oxygen.

    If you love music and a good love story, you’ll love Beyond The Lights.

    The movie is the story of Noni, the next big thing in the music industry. From the outside looking in, Noni’s life looks perfect, but in reality, she struggles everyday to come to terms with her newfound fame and the pressures that accompany it.

    Overwhelmed, the young musician decides to take her life, but is saved by a young man named Kaz Nicol. From that moment on, her life is changed.

    Jon Stewart

    Jon Stewart is making the jump from TV to movies. Well, sort of.

    The comedic newscaster recently signed on to make his directorial debut with a film called Rosewater. The film will air for the first time at the Telluride Film Festival and will also show at the Toronto International Film Festival.

    Despite his new role as director and the departure of many of his close friends from Comedy Central, Jon says he still pretty much loves what he does.

    “I mean, like anything else, you do it long enough, you will take it for granted, or there will be aspects of it that are grinding. I can’t say that following the news cycle as closely as we do and trying to convert that into something either joyful or important to us doesn’t have its fraught moments. But there will come a point where I’m sure…,” he says, trailing off.

    Jon tells The Hollywood Reporter he had never planned on directing Rosewater, it just kind of happened. The film is based on Iranian journalist Maziar Bahari’s memoir, Then They Came for Me: A Family’s Story of Love, Captivity, and Survival, which chronicles Bahari’s 118-day incarceration in Iran’s most notorious prison.
