Kelly Clarkson is back on a reality singing series! A huge production budget was spent on a new local show! Find out more about these exciting shows and more hitting the small screen in February.
Based on the novel of the same name by Richard K. Morgan, Altered Carbon is set in a dystopian world where humans can have their consciousness transferred to a new body before their old one dies. One Laurens Bancroft (James Purefoy) apparently committed suicide. When he wakes up in his new body, he doesn’t have any recollection of what happened to him in the last 48 hours. He suspects he was murdered. Mercenary Takeshi Kovacs (Joel Kinnamen) is hired to help him figure out what happened.
Altered Carbon is coming to Netflix on Feb 2.

Four siblings – Fuad (Ashraf Sinclair), Farid (Remy Ishak), Fahad (Hisyam Hamid) and Fara (Shenty Feliziana) – have been learning martial arts under the tutelage of their father Latif (M. Nasir) for years. When Fara travels to Jakarta one day and gets kidnapped at the airport, it’s up to her brothers to track her down and bring her back home. Along the way, the siblings discover there’s more to their father than meets the eye.
Dosa premieres Feb 14 on Astro First (Ch 480).

The Voice Season 14
To be honest, I’ve lost interest in The Voice for quite sometime now but I can’t wait to tune in to this season as Kelly Clarkson will be on it! She will serve as a coach alongside Blake Shelton, Adam Levine and Alicia Keys. As the first American Idol winner, Clarkson definitely knows what it feels like to be a contestant and it’ll be nice to see that come through when she mentors the contestants. Who’s on #TeamKelly with me?
The Voice Season 14 premieres Feb 27 at 2pm (primetime encore at 10pm) on Foxlife (Astro Ch 711).
