Everyone deserves a second chance. Even a thief, a street racer and a cop who got in a little too deep. After all, the three women who solve cases for their elusive boss Charlie Townsend are no saints - they're angels ... Charlie's Angels. This big, loud, fun take on the 1970's smash hit series introduces us to three new angels, all fearless operatives, head-turning beauties and close friends. There's Abby (Rachael Taylor) a Park Avenue Princess who became a world-class thief. Then there's Kate (Annie Ilonzeh), a Miami cop who fell from grace, losing both her career and her fiancé. Finally there's Gloria, a disgraced army lieutenant who has a way with explosives. When one of the angels' missions ends in Gloria's tragic death, Charlie persuades them to partner with Gloria's childhood friend, Eve (Minka Kelly), a street racer with a mysterious past. They may not know each other yet, but one thing's for sure - Abby, Kate and Eve will always have each others' backs. Leonard Goldberg (the original Charlie's Angels) and Drew Barrymore (the Charlie's Angels movies) join forces with Alfred Gough and Miles Millar (Smallville) to deliver the adrenaline rush of the season. Set in scorching-hot Miami, Charlie's Angels delivers nonstop big screen action. With the help of Bosley 2.0 (Ramon Rodriguez), their hot, young technical expert, and the guidance of their enigmatic boss Charlie (Robert Wagner), these angels are an unstoppable crime fighting force.

The creators of Gossip Girl invite you to get a glimpse inside the beltway. Forget the President, in D.C. the real power plays are made behind closed doors by the President's inner circle - the young, sexy people who shape politics. Andrew, Sam, Nikki and Peter are four of the secret weapons that propelled the current President into power. They also happen to be roommates with an intimate and tangled personal history. The only thing hotter and heavier than their personal lives is their workloads. Andrew (James Wolk) is the President's brilliant but disillusioned speechwriter. His rock-hard abs ensure that his casual hookups make front page news. Sam (Daisy Betts) is Andrew's ex and assistant to the President's Senior Adviser. Caught in a love triangle with Andrew and his charismatic best friend Monty (Kevin Zegers), Sam tries to play it cool, but when Monty unexpectedly proposes to Sam, the tension between Sam and Andrew skyrockets. Political analyst Peter (Joe Mazzello) is the rock in their circle of friends. Then there's Nikki (Katie Cassidy), the President's "spin doctor," who also happens to be a gorgeous ex-model.

In dance, balance is essential. One wrong move and everything comes crashing down. Unfortunately, that goes for life too. Sarah Grace (Abigail Spencer) thought she left all that behind to become a high-profile lawyer. Now a twist of fate is about to bring her back home again. Dancers devote their lives to pursuing perfection and putting it all on the line. For years Sarah put that discipline and dedication into her career and marriage. But when everything starts falling apart, there's only one place left for Sarah to turn - to her wildly dysfunctional family and the world of dancing that she turned away from. At the center of that world is Sarah's eccentric father Michael (Eric Roberts), a brash and visionary dancer, whose passion becomes ours as we see his dance sequences come to life. But while he might be a creative genius, Michael's a lousy father. Fortunately, Sarah and her beautiful and talented multi-racial sisters - all from different mothers - are always there to help each other rise above. But when Michael's past comes back to haunt him just as Sarah's perfect world crumbles, it will take all of her legal brilliance and love for dancing to keep the family's dance studio afloat. It's no easy task, but Sarah is a fierce competitor and her new venture makes her feel more alive than she has in years. Dance takes center stage in this diverse family drama from executive producer and writer Krista Vernoff (Grey's Anatomy) and executive producer Carrie Ann Inaba (Dancing with the Stars).

In the town of Hallelujah, it's like the devil grabbed hold and won't let go. Formidable Del Roman (Terry O'Quinn) uses his wealth and power to pull the strings of the local police force and control the town from behind the curtain. But there's a stranger on his way to Hallelujah and if things don't straighten out, there's going to be hell to pay. Rye Turner (Donal Logue) is a good man, but lately he and his family have fallen on hard times. A tragic accident has turned his 8-year old son Matthew mute and left his wife Ruth (Frances O'Connor) racked with guilt. The whole town of Hallelujah is suffering, but when Rye almost hits a stranger by the side of the road, his luck begins to change. Rye invites this stranger, Jared (Jesse L. Martin), to stay for a while, but Ruth isn't as easily taken in by this charming drifter. When Jared's arrival coincides with a rather miraculous event, even Ruth agrees that Jared is a welcome change to the town. Of course, Del Roman isn't nearly as enchanted. As these two very different but equally powerful characters face off, the small town of Hallelujah will become the landscape for an epic battle between good and evil.

Welcome to the front line. Trauma surgeon Rebecca Gordon (Michelle Borth) thought she'd seen it all, but when she lands at the military hospital in Kandahar, Afghanistan, it quickly becomes clear she hasn't experienced anything yet. No one could imagine the brutal life and death decisions that need to be made on a daily basis in the Hot Zone. Despite the danger, Rebecca quickly discovers the exhilaration of working on the edge with such a talented and dedicated team. There's Dr. Simon Hill (Luke Mably), a swaggering British neurosurgeon who volunteered to be here - probably to escape his own personal demons. Colonel Xavier Marks (Elias Koteas) manages the hospital and rides herd on the unruly doctors. Rounding out the team are Commander Will Royal the warm-hearted Chief of Nursing, Major Vanessa Pedersen (Deborah Kara Unger), the Danish Army Psychiatrist, Bashir "Vans" Al-Adeeb, a streetwise 17-year old interpreter and Captain Bobby Trang (Terry Chen), Rebecca's confidant who wishes he could be something more. The never-ending conflicts that arise from being in a military hospital under fire are immensely challenging, but Rebecca and her colleagues face each new highly-charged medical situation with dry humor, a powerful sense of compassion and the occasional ill-advised romantic entanglement. A high-adrenaline combination of China Beach and MacGyver, combat hospital transports you into the heart of the hot zone. Created by Dan Petrie Jr. (Oscar(R)-nominated writer of Beverly Hills Cop) and Gub Neal (Emmy(R) Award-winning executive producer of (Prime Suspect).

"The best way to do something bad is to do it as someone else." In a world where anonymity is power, just living your life makes you the perfect target. A sophisticated new breed of identity thieves is destroying the lives of ordinary citizens, but now a dedicated task force has been recruited to drag these faceless criminals into the light and bring them to justice. While average law enforcement is helpless to stop cutting-edge identity theft, the Identity Crimes Division (ICD) is anything but average. And the crimes they're fighting take identity theft to the extreme. Hard-edged, straight-laced detective Anthony Wareing (Orlando Jones), tough, former undercover agent John Bloom (Colin O'Donoghue) and Special Agent in Charge Martha Adams (Angela Bassett) lead the team charged with taking down the criminals that no one else has a chance of catching. Hand selected, their colorful team also includes a smooth talker and tech whiz to get the job done. Every episode is a shocking look into an all-too-real world, where victims' lives spin suddenly and dangerously out of control in a nanosecond. Identity thieves can be anyone, operating from anywhere. Their weapon is information and once they're in your life ... they're in full control. No one is safe, but with the ICD, at least we have a fighting chance. From visionary, hit-making executive producer Mark Gordon (Grey's Anatomy, Criminal Minds, Saving Private Ryan) comes a wake-up call to America.

But when the son she gave up years ago finds her, everything will change. Henry (Jared Gilmore) is 10 years old now and in desperate need of Emma's help. Henry believes that Emma actually comes from an alternate world ... and is Prince Charming (Josh Dallas) and Snow White's (Ginnifer Goodwin) missing daughter.

Welcome to the Jet Age. It's 1963 and the whole world is on the brink of a cultural revolution. WWII is history, the Cold War is just getting warmed up and big changes are in the air. In this modern world, air travel represents the height of luxury, and Pan Am is the biggest name in the business. The planes are glamorous, the pilots are rock stars and the stewardesses are the most desirable women in the world. Not only are these flyboys and girls young and good looking; to represent Pan Am, they also have to be educated, cultured and refined. They're trained to handle everything from in-air emergencies to unwanted advances - all without rumpling their pristine uniforms or mussing their hair. There's Dean (Jonah Lotan) - a cocky and ambitious new pilot, the first of a new breed not trained in the war. Against company policy, he's dating Bridget, a motherly beauty with a mysterious past. Rebellious bohemian Maggie (Christina Ricci) buttons up for work so she can see the world. Rounding out the crew is flirtatious Colette (Karine Vanasse), the adventurous Kate (Kelli Garner) and finally there's Laura (Margot Robbie) - Kate's beauty queen sister who recently fled a life of domestic boredom to take to the skies. Passion, jealousy, espionage. They do it all and they do it at 30,000 feet.

Every cop looks out for his or her partner. But when your partner is also your sister, the stakes are a lot higher. Mattie Scott and Jess Mancini have had each other's backs since they were kids. If anyone in their precinct knew they were sisters, there's no way they could be partners. Luckily, they have different last names, and so far, no one's made the connection. Although they're a great team, Mattie (Scottie Thompson) and Jess (Annie Wersching) couldn't be more different. Brash and confrontational, Mattie is frequently in trouble for being too hot-headed, whereas level-headed Jess favors strategy and skill over guns. Ironically, each of them thinks that it's the other one who needs looking after. That may be because a childhood tragedy left them with no one to rely on but each other. Now Mattie keeps an eye out for Jess and Jess's 12-year old son Kevin (Garrett Ryan), while Jess works overtime doing damage control to make up for Mattie's unorthodox methods. Mattie and Jess are as close as two sisters can be, but one of them is hiding a secret that could tear them apart. And when you're detectives ... secrets don't stay hidden for long. Partners, ABC's new powerhouse crime drama from Criminal Minds' Edward Allen Bernero, introduces two totally different but equally fascinating female characters as it explores themes of family, justice and the ties that bind.

The creators of Paranormal Activity join forces with DreamWorks and Michael Green (Heroes, Kings) for a riveting new thriller that takes you deep into the unknown, where the only thing darker than family secrets is the mystery at the heart of the Amazon - mystery that may just have you believe there's magic out there. Famed explorer Dr. Emmet Cole (Bruce Greenwood) went looking for magic deep in the uncharted Amazon and never returned. Now, the shocking truth about his disappearance is out there, somewhere, just waiting to be discovered. To the millions of kids who grew up watching his nature show, Dr. Cole was a hero. To his own son Lincoln (Joe Anderson), he was more of an enigma. Now, six months after he vanished, Lincoln is finally ready to bury the past when Dr. Cole's emergency beacon suddenly goes off. At the urging of his mother Tess (Leslie Hope), Lincoln reluctantly joins her on a search for his father. To fund the rescue, they agree to let Dr. Cole's cagey ex-producer Clark (Paul Blackthorne) film the mission documentary-style. The mixed crew of old friends and new acquaintances includes the sexy and resourceful Lena (Eloise Mumford), loyal mechanic Emilio (Daniel Zacapa) and lethal bodyguard Captain Kurt Brynildson (Thomas Kretschmann). Once they find The Magus, the real adventure begins. In the search for Dr. Cole, they will encounter a scary new mystery each week, while struggling with their own personal jealousies, insecurities, secrets and desires.
