The series will see Kiefer Sutherland as a low level cabinet member who becomes Commander-in-Chief after everyone before him in line to the presidency dies during a catastrophic attack on the State of the Union address.
Based on the web series, the show is about a struggling millennial narrated by her lonely, philosophical dog.
The drama follows a young attorney (Haley Atwell), the brilliant but ne’er-do-well daughter of a former President, who is blackmailed into taking a job as the head of Los Angeles’ newly created Conviction Integrity Unit. She, along with her team of lawyers, investigators and forensics experts, examines cases where there’s credible suspicion that the wrong person may have been convicted of a crime.
"Time After Time"
Based on the novel and movie of the same name, the series transports science fiction writer H.G. Wells to modern day Manhattan in pursuit of Jack the Ripper.
Inspired by the true stories of famed criminal defense attorney Mark Geragos and cable news producer Wendy Walker, the drama explores the interplay of criminal law and the media, with Piper Perabo playing the Walker role.
A “Romeo and Juliet” sequel based on the 2013 book of the same name, the show follows the drama between the Capulets and Montagues in the wake of the teen lovers’ deaths at the end of the Shakespeare play.
The comedy follows a wife and mother of three and her flawed family in the wealthy town of Westport, Connecticut, with its “perfect” mommies and their “perfect” offspring.
The single-camera sitcom follows a family with a special-needs child that is good at dealing with the challenges it faces — and excellent at creating new ones.
The live action/CGI hybrid stars Jenna Elfman, an independent career woman whose unstable imaginary friend reemerges when she meets the love of her life -- a divorced father with three kids.
