The first three episodes of all three series will be made available on SHOWTIME ON DEMAND(R) and SHOWTIME ANYTIME the day after their series premieres.

NURSE JACKIE stars Edie Falco in her Emmy(R) Award-winning role as Jackie Peyton, a strong-willed and brilliant - but very flawed - emergency room nurse. When season four returns, Jackie comes to realize that both karma and sobriety can be a bitch. In addition to finally confronting her addiction, Jackie must also attempt to save her troubled marriage and keep her family from falling apart. At work, Jackie's street smarts and sardonic wit are tested even further by an ambitious new hospital administrator (special guest star Bobby Cannavale), determined to run a tight ship and keep her in line. The series also stars Eve Best, Merritt Wever, Paul Schulze, Dominic Fumusa, Anna Deavere Smith and Peter Facinelli. Stephen Wallem, Arjun Gupta and Lenny Jacobson guest star. Season four's other guest stars include acclaimed actors Rosie Perez, Aida Turturro and Joel Grey, New York Knicks' forward Carmelo Anthony and Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong. Liz Brixius and Linda Wallem write and executive produce the series along with Richie Jackson and Caryn Mandabach, who also serve as executive producers.

THE BIG C focuses on Cathy Jamison (Laura Linney, in her Golden Globe(R)-winning and Emmy-nominated role), a reserved, suburban wife/mother/teacher whose terminal cancer diagnosis forces her to shake up her life and find the light side of a dark situation. This season, Cathy sets about finding more joy in her life. The series also stars Oliver Platt, John Benjamin Hickey, Gabriel Basso and Gabourey Sidibe. The stellar list of guest cast for the third season includes special guest star Susan Sarandon, and special guest appearances by Alan Alda and Allison Janney. Other guest stars include Mamie Gummer, Tammy Blanchard, Brian D'Arcy James and Hamish Linklater. THE BIG C is created and written by Darlene Hunt, who serves as executive producer, along with writer/showrunner Jenny Bicks, Laura Linney, Mark Kunerth, Michael Engler, Vivian Cannon and Neal H. Moritz. It is produced by Sony Pictures Television.

THE BORGIAS, a one-hour drama series based on the infamous Italian Renaissance family, stars Oscar(R)-winning actor Jeremy Irons in his Golden Globe-nominated role as Rodrigo Borgia, the cunning, manipulative patriarch of the Borgia family who ascends to the highest circles of power within Renaissance-era Italy to become Pope Alexander VI. The series also stars Francois Arnaud, Holliday Grainger, Joanne Whalley, Lotte Verbeek, David Oakes and Colm Feore. The series is an Ireland/Canada/Hungary co-production. Academy Award(R) winner Neil Jordan serves as creator, executive producer and writer of the series. David Leland and Guy Burt also serve as writers during the series' second run. James Flynn, Sheila Hockin, John Weber, David Leland, Justin Falvey and Jack Rapke serve as the executive producers.
