BETRAYAL - 1 HOUR
It started with a chance meeting at an art gallery. Photographer Sara Hayward
and Attorney Jack McCutchen both felt it, a sudden spark and with it, an
undeniable feeling of instant attraction. Both are married, albeit, unhappily to
other people; she, to successful prosecutor Drew Hayward, a political climber
out for himself. Outsiders think they have the perfect marriage but Sara knows
full well the distance and coldness that has crept into their marriage. Jack, too,
has felt the loss of intimacy in his own marriage to Elaine, the daughter of
Jack's boss Terrence Karsten. Karsten is a powerful mogul in a business that
creates a lot of enemies.
Despite themselves, Sara and Jack find themselves ever drawn to each other
after a series of chance encounters. They are two souls wounded by life's
vagaries who form a powerful connection and before long, a torrid affair begins.
When Karsten's brother-in-law Lou is murdered, all evidence points to Karsten's
son TJ. (Henry Thomas) Jack, as the company's lead council, will have to
defend him. For Sara's prosecutor husband Drew, this is the kind of high-profile
murder case that can secure his political future. Before Sara and Jack's affair
has barely started, the lovers will find themselves in an impossible situation-on
opposite sides of a murder investigation. The relationship and the case begin a
spiraling series of betrayals with cataclysmic results for everyone.
From David Zabel (ER) and directed by Patty Jenkins (The Killing, Monster)

BIG THUNDER - 1 HOUR
There's gold in the hills of Big Thunder Mountain, deep in the Wyoming Territory
of 1890, enough gold to make King Midas jealous. There's something else at
Big Thunder too, something otherworldly. Local legend holds that the mountain
has been cursed by the Apache since a notorious mining accident at this
western outpost some 30 years ago.
About as far from the splendor of the wild west as one can get, widower Dr.
Grant Carson lives with his 17 year old daughter Nora and young son Jack
(Pierce Gagnon) on the crowded lower east side of Manhattan. Son Jack
suffers from a frightening respiratory illness for which Grant Carson strives to
find a cure.
The family's life will suddenly change when Grant gets an offer to move to the
mining town of Big Thunder because they need a doctor and are willing to pay
any price. Lured by the promise of a better life, the Carsons, accompanied by
Grant's dead wife's sister, Lizzie, set out on a frontier adventure and meet the
mysterious benefactor who brought them there: Abel White. But there is
something about this Eden on the edge of civilization and something about Abel
White-supernatural forces are at work and their son seems to be a conduit.
Together the family will uncover the mysteries, dangers and unspoken secrets
of the haunted mountain: Big Thunder.
From Jason Fuchs (ICE AGE: CONTINENTAL DRIFT), Chris Morgan (FAST &
THE FURIOUS franchise) and Melissa Rosenberg (TWILIGHT Series, RED
WIDOW) comes this exciting mystery adventure loosely based on the
Disneyland ride Big Thunder Mountain.

DOUBT - 1 HOUR
"Everything's going to be okay", that is the mantra defense attorney Vince
Calzonetti invokes to his clients, co-workers, and friends when things are at
their worst. And with Vince, it seems things are always at their worst.
A former cop turned low-rent lawyer, Vince uses his street smarts to work the
system for his clients and his methods in and out of the courtroom are
notoriously unconventional. And Vince finds himself in court a lot; depending on
the day, he's either the attorney or the defendant. He's a complicated soul
always bending the law in order to keep the doors of his struggling, new
practice open for all who depend on him, including his legal associates Mr. and
Mrs. Syd Newman and his mentally and physically challenged brother Mark. He
does it all while battling his own inner demons and trying to manage a
complicated love/hate relationship with his ex-wife Linda, a DA.
Vince doesn't have one cynical bone in his body, they're the only kinds of bones
he has. He's not interested in truth, justice or the American way for that matter,
all Vince is looking for is doubt...reasonable doubt...enough to get his clients off
and get himself paid. His young paralegal Monica sees through that, though,
and believes deep down Vince cares about the clients, the law and above all,
the truth and maybe she's right. Either way, when Vince Calzonetti lays down
the law, you'll want him on your side.
From David Shore, the creator of HOUSE, comes a new, fast moving legal
drama that will leave no DOUBT.

Park Avenue widow Blythe Sutton (Annie Potts) is a woman of money, influence
and ....an impeccable taste for solving murders. When a friend and fellow
blueblood is found dead of an apparent suicide, Blythe knows in every fiber of
her being that it was foul play and she's determined to get to the truth. Enlisting
the help of her daughter Lex (Bridget Regan, LEGEND OF THE SEEKER) isn't
going to be easy. According to Lex, just because she and her mother
uncovered the truth about the murder of another friend, doesn't mean they can
solve every suspicious death in Manhattan. Blythe doesn't believe it was just a
fluke and she knows that, despite the protestations, Lex loved working with her
to solve the crime and is certain they can do it again.
The two Sutton women share a strong bond and an active imagination. They
will spin, Rashoman-style, their own theories about how the dead woman met
her end. Each brings to their sleuthing partnership their own investigative
abilities: Lex works in the Mayor's Community Affairs Unit and has a knack for
puzzle-solving. It also doesn't hurt that she is romantically involved with her
former childhood friend Jack, a NYC detective, from whom she'll extract what
information she can while also trying to keep her budding relationship a secret
from Blythe. And Blythe, well, Blythe can talk to anyone about anything and will
do so to uncover the truth. Her dashingly handsome son Bart vows to stay
above the family fray: two strong-willed women with a flair for the dramatic are
not going to drag him into this. And through it all, when mother and daughter
work this closely together to solve a case, they may ultimately realize the
biggest puzzle might just be each other.
All the clues point to intrigue, humor and fun when this mother and daughter
amateur gumshoe team take on MURDER IN MANHATTAN while also solving
the complexities of their own relationship in a one hour dramedy from writer
Maria Maggenti and produced by Ryan Reynolds and Allan Loeb's DarkFire
