Second Season of Culinary Docuseries ‘How She Rolls’ Due on PBS Living in September

“How She Rolls,” the culinary docuseries that follows the life of baker Carrie Morey, returns for a second season on PBS Living Sept. 12.

The first season followed Morey, an award-winning baker, author, business owner, mother, wife and daughter, as her family and business, Callie’s Hot Little Biscuit, went through the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, when she learned to balance being a mom with the pressures of being a business owner during a world health crisis.

In the 10-episode season two, she experiences the growing success of her business, which leads to more challenges. New players, rising costs, store closures and health issues create obstacles, but also help her refocus personally and professionally.

The subscription rate for PBS Living is $2.99 per month with an Amazon Prime or Prime Video subscription. The channel is also available on Apple TV Channels in the Apple TV app at $2.99 per month with no additional fees.

American Masters — Bing Crosby: Rediscovered, which starts streaming Nov. 26, explores one of the most popular and influential multi-media stars of the first half of the 2oth century. For over three decades, through radio, film, television and records he reigned supreme. A brilliant entrepreneur, Crosby played an important role in the development of the postwar recording industry. Crosby recorded nearly 400 hit singles, an achievement only Sinatra, Elvis or the Beatles have matched. Almost 40 years after his death, he remains the most recorded performer in history. Narrated by Stanley Tucci and directed by Robert Trachtenberg, the film explores the life and legend of the iconic performer, revealing a personality far more complex than the image the public had known.

Actor Simon Callow discovers the hidden meaning of one of the most popular Christmas carols in The First Silent Night, which begins streaming Nov. 30.

The First Silent Night introduces us to two impoverished children — Joseph Mohr and Franz Gruber — who grew up in Austria’s cobbled streets and wooded villages. The hard years that shaped them also destined them to meet one day in a poor country church, where they united Gruber’s music and Mohr’s text into this classic carol about the birth of a third poor boy on a quiet night in ancient Palestine.

Each episode follows Morey as she balances being a mom to three daughters with the pressures of being a business owner in what has been an unpredictable year. Whether she’s traveling the country to attend food expos, dealing with the obstacles of opening a new breakfast and lunch biscuit eatery three hours from home, or putting work aside to prepare a dinner for her family, viewers follow Morey’s challenges and triumphs.
