Gorgeous agent

HBO presents Miss Congeniality 2 — Armed And Fabulous starring Sandra Bullock on May 19 at 9 pm. Picking up soon after the events of the first film, this inspired sequel opens with FBI agent Gracie Hart (Bullock) back in action against a team of bank robbers, only to have her cover blown over by her newfound fame.
In an effort to capitalise on the publicity, Gracie is assigned to promote the FBI, touring with the brutal agent Sam Fuller as her bodyguard. While travelling around the country, her friend and Miss USA beauty queen, Cheryl Frasier, is kidnapped along with Stan Fields (Shatner). Gracie then goes undercover in Las Vegas to find them. Her method of operation includes beating up Dolly Parton, defying a sexist FBI bigwig and faking cramps. All in true Gracie Hart style.

In pursuit of justice
Popular show Leverage returns with its second season on AXN on May 19 at 11 pm. Academy Award winner Timothy Hutton stars as mastermind Nate, along with his specialised team of four — Gina Bellman as the grifter Sophie, Christian Kane as the retrieval specialist Eliot, Beth Riesgraf as the kooky thief Parker and Aldis Hodge as the hacker Alec. The talented team returns to settle more scores against those who use power and wealth to victimise others.
Picking up from season one’s destruction of the headquarters and the decision to go their separate ways, the team of five is unwittingly pulled back together when Nate witnesses an attempted murder of a bank whistle-blower. A new headquarters is created at Nate’s new Boston home, cementing the team’s return as modern day Robin Hoods. With stunning guest star Elisabetta Canalis (George Clooney’s girlfriend) making her acting debut this season, the viewers probably couldn’t have asked for more.
