New Series:

Crime 360 (Working Title) � Crime 360 is the perfect blend of verit� crime drama and high-tech CGI graphics � a completely new way to experience real-life criminal investigations as they unfold. In Crime 360, real, in the moment investigation meets technology for the first time in non-fiction television, where viewers go inside detective work as theories, forensics and evidence are brought to life through incredible CGI visualizations and state-of-the-art 3D photography.

The Rookies � In hurricane-ravaged Louisiana, a new class of rookies emerges from the sanctity of the police academy and immediately enters some of the deadliest streets in America. Jefferson Parish, Louisiana is a place where crime is rising fast and with the town in need of protection, Sheriff Harry Lee must call upon The Rookies. As they leave the academy, the rookies begin a 12-week street patrol, riding shotgun with a Field Training Officer (FTO).

The Two Coreys � Corey Haim and Corey Feldman have one of the most unique and storied friendships in Hollywood history. With eight shared film titles between them including The Lost Boys and License to Drive their onscreen chemistry was legendary. Now, nearly two decades later, the friends are back together on-screen and under one roof in The Two Coreys. Like the feature film You, Me & Dupree, Corey Haim comes to live with his old pal and his beautiful wife Susie. Tension and comedy ensue as the Feldmans deal with their challenging house guest.

The Pendletons - When we last checked in on Thomas Pendleton, the breakout character on the A&E original series Inked, he had abandoned his successful career at Hart & Huntington, walked away from his self-destructive Las Vegas lifestyle, and settled down with his new wife Monica. Now strapped for cash, Thomas is setting off on a cross-county tattoo tour to support his art and his growing family. In the pilot episode, Thomas and Monica will travel to Arkansas, where they will purchase a gospel group's tour bus and convert it "Thomas style" into a rolling headquarters for his nationwide tattooing tour.
