Mayor Sylvester Turner partnered with HDR Engineering to give back to the Northwest Houston community. 

It's the season of giving, and Houston is surely in the spirit. Last week, Mayor Turner gave back to the community with a bike giveaway, Samantha Brown is making her way to the Bayou City for a new season of her hit show, Samantha Brown's Places to Love. Elsewhere, Megan Thee Stallion announced a new partnership with Netflix where she will produce a new series, and Houston's medical examiner released the cause of death for the Astroworld victims. 

Here's what Houston was up to last week. 

The cause of death for Astroworld Festival victims released.


The Harris County Medical Examiner discovered last week that the cause of death for victims of the deadly crowd surge was from compression asphyxia. The deaths were ruled as an accident. 

Mayor Turner and HDR Engineering join forces to distribute bicycles to families ahead of the holidays.


Right before the holiday season begins, Mayor Sylvester Turner partnered with HDR to give back to the Acres Home community with their fifth annual bike giveaway. According to a press release, Turner and HDR volunteers gave away 200 bicycles and helmets to families, along with H-E-B gift cards. 

Megan Thee Stallion announces partnership with Netflix.


Although she just celebrated her graduation from Texas Southern University, Megan Thee Stallion is still busy at work. Netflix announced Thursday that the rapper and philanthropist would be producing a new series and "other projects" with the subscription-based streaming service. 

Search warrants were issued for Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson.


Watson, who's been in an ongoing legal battle after 22 women accused him of inappropriate sexual conduct, was recently hit with search warrants for his social media accounts, including Instagram and Cash App. 

Houston is featured in the newest season of Samantha Brown's hit PBS television series, Samatha Brown's Places To Love.


 The Bayou City is no stranger to the big screen, and the city we call home will be the face of yet another television series. On the fourth season of the PBS show, Samantha Brown's Places To Love, Houston will be one of the domestic cities highlighted.
