The E! channel revolves around celebrities and Hollywood but we can all admit that the programming is mostly fluff. If you want a deeper, more serious dive into Tinsel Town, look no further than Reelz.

Reelz, like E! is centered around celebrity culture but offers more heady programming in the way of documentaries and character studies. Shows like Celebrity Page focuses on the latest celeb gossip and lifestyle stories. Real Story Of… uncovers the true stories behind hit movies like Argo and The Infiltrator. Along with all the celeb programming, there’s tons of true crime shows to delight to. CopyCat Killers uncovers wannabe serial killers, while Autopsy: The Last Hours Of… goes deep on the final days of popular celebs from Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain.

Here’s everything you need to know to watch a Reelz live stream.
