Baywatch Party, L.A. Screenings

For the last couple of weeks, our Content Director Cristina Clavera and the Grey Juice Lab team have been in Hollywood for the 2017 L.A. Screenings. For almost two weeks, we’ve diligently gone from studio to studio to find some of the most exciting content Hollywood has to offer.

Each day Cristina picked her favourite programme to crown. We’ve been sharing them on our Twitter and Facebook, but in case you missed it, here’s our 2017 L.A. Screenings round-up.
