From Emmy Award-winning executive producer J.J. Abrams ("Fringe," "Lost," the "Star Trek" and "Mission: Impossible" franchises) and creator/executive producer J.H. Wyman ("Fringe," "The Mexican"), comes ALMOST HUMAN. Starring Karl Urban ("Star Trek") and Michael Ealy ("Sleeper Cell," "Common Law"), the new series is an action-packed police drama set 35 years in the future, when police officers are partnered with highly evolved human-like androids.
The year is 2048. Meet JOHN KENNEX (Urban), a cop who survived one of the most catastrophic attacks ever made against the police department. After waking up from a 17-month coma, he can't remember much - except that his partner was killed; his girlfriend, ANNA MOORE (guest star Mekia Cox, "Crazy, Stupid, Love.," "Undercovers"), left him after the attack; and he lost one of his legs and is now outfitted with a highly sophisticated synthetic appendage.
Suffering from depression, mental atrophy, trauma-onset OCD, PTSD and the "psychological rejection of his synthetic body part," John returns to work at the behest of longtime ally Captain SANDRA MALDONADO (Emmy Award nominee Lili Taylor, "Six Feet Under," "Ransom"). By mandate, every cop must partner with a robot. And despite his passionate aversion to androids, John is paired up with a battle-ready MX-43. But he abruptly terminates his partnership after the robot discovers incriminating information about him. So technician RUDY LOM (Mackenzie Crook, "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise) introduces John to DORIAN (Ealy), a discontinued android with unexpected emotional responses. Although such responses were deemed flaws, it is in these "flaws" that John relates to Dorian most. After all, John is part-machine now, and Dorian is part-human. John and Dorian's understanding of each other not only complements them, it connects them.
As he adjusts to working with his new partner, John also must learn to get along with his new colleagues, including the eager and somewhat starstruck Detective VALERIE STAHL (Minka Kelly, "Friday Night Lights," "(500) Days of Summer") and the distrustful Detective RICHARD PAUL (Michael Irby, "Law Abiding Citizen," "The Unit"), who does not welcome John back with open arms.
ALMOST HUMAN will follow the week-to-week missions of John and Dorian, as they fight crime across this futuristic landscape, while the mysteries surrounding his attack and the larger mythology of this new world unfold.
ALMOST HUMAN is produced by Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Bad Robot Productions and Warner Bros. Television. The series is created by J.H. Wyman, who wrote the pilot. The series is executive-produced by J.J. Abrams, Bryan Burk and Wyman. Kathy Lingg ("Person of Interest," "Revolution," "Fringe") and Reid Shane ("Fringe") are co-executive producers. Brad Anderson ("Fringe," "The Killing") directed and served as co-executive producer on the pilot.

From Emmy Award-winning writer/producers Dan Goor and Michael Schur ("Parks and Recreation"), and starring Emmy Award winners Andy Samberg ("Saturday Night Live") and Andre Braugher ("Men of a Certain Age," "Homicide: Life on the Street"), BROOKLYN NINE-NINE is a new single-camera ensemble comedy about what happens when a talented, but carefree, detective gets a new captain with a lot to prove.
Detective JAKE PERALTA (Samberg) is a good enough cop that he's never had to work that hard or follow the rules too closely. Perhaps because he has the best arrest record among his colleagues, he's been enabled - if not indulged - throughout his entire career. That is, until the precinct gets a new commanding officer, Captain RAY HOLT (Braugher), who reminds this hotshot cop to respect the badge.
Jake may have collared more criminals, but Detective AMY SANTIAGO (Melissa Fumero, "One Life to Live," "Gossip Girl") is close behind, and she's keenly aware of how many arrests she needs to close the gap. Amy grew up with seven brothers who were all cops. She's the first girl in the family to put on a police uniform, and suffice it to say: she's extremely competitive...about everything.
Also working cases in Brooklyn's 99th precinct is Sergeant TERRY JEFFORDS (Terry Crews, "Bridesmaids," "Everybody Hates Chris"), a linebacker of a man who's lost his nerve, not because he's a wimp, but because a year ago, his wife had twin baby girls - Cagney and Lacey - and he can't imagine not seeing them grow up. Detective CHARLES BOYLE (Joe Lo Truglio, "Wreck-It Ralph," "Superbad"), who idolizes Jake, is the precinct's workhorse; he's not that brilliant, he's not physically gifted, but he tries harder than anyone else. Charles pines for Detective ROSA DIAZ (Stephanie Beatriz, "Modern Family," "The Closer"), with whom he stands no chance at all. Rosa is simultaneously tough, sexy and scary as hell. She's vocally opinionated about everything. Cleaning up everyone's mess is GINA LINETTI (Chelsea Peretti, "Parks and Recreation," "Kroll Show"), the eccentric, civilian office manager who somehow gets involved in everyone's business.
Together, these tightly knit - or is it tightly wound? - cops interrogate suspects, arrest perps and solve murders. But, ultimately, BROOKLYN NINE-NINE is a workplace comedy that's not really about the job. It's about the men and women behind the badge - singing karaoke, grabbing a beer and hitting on each other - all while protecting the fine people of Brooklyn.
BROOKLYN NINE-NINE is produced by Universal Television. The series is created and written by Dan Goor ("Late Night with Conan O'Brien," "Parks and Recreation") and Michael Schur ("The Office," "Parks and Recreation"). The series is executive-produced by Goor, Schur and David Miner ("30 Rock"). The pilot was directed by the team of Phil Lord and Chris Miller ("21 Jump Street," "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs").

Cosmos - A Spacetime Odyssey
More than three decades after the debut of "Cosmos: A Personal Voyage," Carl Sagan's stunning and iconic exploration of the universe as revealed by science, COSMOS: A SPACETIME ODYSSEY sets off on a new voyage for the stars. Seth MacFarlane (FAMILY GUY, AMERICAN DAD) and Sagan's original creative collaborators - writer/executive producer Ann Druyan and astronomer Steven Soter - have teamed to conceive a 13-part docu-series that will serve as a successor to the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning original series.
Hosted by renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, the series will explore how we discovered the laws of nature and found our coordinates in space and time. It will bring to life never-before-told stories of the heroic quest for knowledge and transport viewers to new worlds and across the universe for a vision of the cosmos on the grandest scale. COSMOS: A SPACETIME ODYSSEY will invent new modes of scientific storytelling to reveal the grandeur of the universe and re-invent celebrated elements of the legendary original series, including the Cosmic Calendar and the Ship of the Imagination. The most profound scientific concepts will be presented with stunning clarity, uniting skepticism and wonder, and weaving rigorous science with the emotional and spiritual into a transcendent experience.
Carl Sagan's original series "Cosmos: A Personal Voyage" was first broadcast in 1980, and has been enjoyed by more than 750 million people worldwide.
COSMOS: A SPACETIME ODYSSEY is produced by Cosmos Studios, the Ithaca, NY-based company Ann Druyan co-founded in 2000, and Fuzzy Door Productions. Druyan and Steven Soter are the series' writers. Druyan, MacFarlane, Cosmos Studios president Mitchell Cannold and Brannon Braga ("Star Trek" franchise, "24") will executive-produce the series. Braga and Bill Pope ("Spider-Man 2," "Spider-Man 3," "The Matrix" franchise) will direct the series.

Honor thy father.
Way easier said than done. Especially when your dad's broke, living in your house and ruining your life.
From Seth MacFarlane, Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild, the creatively outrageous minds behind last year's highest-grossing feature comedy, "Ted," and FOX's hit animated series FAMILY GUY, DADS explores the often treacherous terrain of the father-son landscape. This new multi-camera comedy series follows two successful guys - and childhood best friends - now in their mid-30s whose relatively stable lives get turned upside down when their pain-in-the-neck patriarchs move in.
ELI (Emmy Award winner Seth Green, FAMILY GUY, "Robot Chicken") and WARNER (Emmy Award nominee Giovanni Ribisi, "My Name is Earl," "Ted," "Avatar") are the co-founders of a successful video game company. Warner is married with two kids and a beautiful home. Despite his success, he's a bundle of nerves, constantly worrying that his next paycheck will be his last. He and Eli came up with the idea for the company while stoned in college, and Eli has remained stoned ever since. In contrast to Warner's picture-perfect life, Eli's is a bit messier, with brief stabs at self-improvement. What he lacks in courage, he also lacks in moral fiber.
Although Warner and Eli are at very different places in their lives, they are so close, their friendship is more like a marriage. And that relationship is more complicated now, as their dads invade their lives. Warner's neuroses likely stem from having grown up in a family whose fortunes fluctuated wildly from year to year, due to the failed get-rich-quick schemes of his father, CRAWFORD (Martin Mull, "Two and a Half Men"). A self-described "businessman" (in wine-stained khakis) and a perpetual optimist, Crawford still firmly believes the next big opportunity is just around the corner. Now living with Warner and Warner's beautiful, hotheaded wife, CAMILA (Vanessa Lachey, "True Beauty," "The Bold and the Beautiful"), Crawford continues to spend beyond his means, making well-intentioned grand gestures that he can't afford and that Warner ends up paying for.
Eli's dad, DAVID (Academy Award and Emmy Award nominee Peter Riegert, "The Good Wife," "The Sopranos"), is a towering monument to negativity. Equal parts cheap and cranky, David relishes disappointment and has always prepared his son for it. After hitting hard times, David turns to Eli, who reluctantly agrees to let his dad move in - even as he continues to blame David for his own shortcomings, including his inability to settle down. In fact, his longest relationship with a woman remains the one with his cleaning lady, EDNA (Tonita Castro, "Go On," "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World").
Trying to help both Warner and Eli through their myriad life challenges is VERONICA (Brenda Song, NEW GIRL, "Scandal"), their witty and entitled assistant, who is a force to be reckoned with.
The invasion of the DADS will give these friends and business partners their biggest challenge yet. Between dubious schemes, passive-aggressive busy-bodying and light kissing-on-the-lips, will these beleaguered sons be able to hold the line in the face of two massive game-changers?
DADS is produced by 20th Century Fox Television and Fuzzy Door Productions. The series is created and written by Emmy Award-nominated writer/producers Alec Sulkin ("Ted," FAMILY GUY) and Wellesley Wild ("Ted," FAMILY GUY). Seth MacFarlane ("Ted," FAMILY GUY), Sulkin and Wild are executive producers. Marc Cendrowski ("The Big Bang Theory") directed the pilot.

Does Someone Have to Go
On the new unscripted workplace experiment DOES SOMEONE HAVE TO GO?, the boardroom doors get blown wide open when employees are given the power to make some tough decisions. Frustrated bosses will hand over the reins of their companies to the employees, offering their respective staffs a chance to make changes in the workplace - even if it means letting co-workers go.
Almost every office across the country has some level of dysfunction, which often can be attributed to just a few select individuals - those co-workers who might be viewed as anything from lazy to incompetent to quite simply having a toxic personality that poisons the entire workplace. The difficult part for the employees is that, most of the time, the boss isn't even aware of how bad the problem is, and the only person who can do anything about it IS the boss. That is, until now!
From Endemol USA ("Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," "Steve Harvey," "Wipeout"), DOES SOMEONE HAVE TO GO? will take viewers inside the workplace, as businesses including a sports product merchandiser, a credit card processing company and a home remodeling company make tough decisions to assure their long-term success. The unscripted series gives employees a voice in assessing how their company is functioning, inviting them to make recommendations on how best to solve their issues in order to make their company better and giving them the power to determine the fates of their fellow staffers. But when the owners leave their companies in the hands of their employees, those workers quickly learn that solving personnel issues isn't as easy as it looks.
Each participating office will have its own set of issues, which will force employees to take a hard look at what's plaguing their workplace and answer the toughest question of all: DOES SOMEONE HAVE TO GO?
DOES SOMEONE HAVE TO GO? is produced by Endemol USA. The series is executive-produced by Cris Abrego and Fernando Mills. Scott Teti serves as co-executive producer.

Three brothers, one Army, but absolutely no fighting!
ENLISTED is an irreverent but heartfelt single-camera comedy about three brothers on a small Florida Army base and the group of misfits who surround them.
Charming, funny and a natural-born leader, Sergeant PETE HILL (Geoff Stults, "Ben and Kate," "The Finder") was on a path for a huge military career until one mistake overseas got him booted stateside to Fort McGee, the base in Florida where his two younger brothers are stationed. Now, as head of their platoon, Pete must serve both as big brother and military boss. Corporal DERRICK HILL (Chris Lowell, "Private Practice," "Veronica Mars") is the middle brother - smart and sarcastic, he likes to stir up trouble and doesn't really care about being a soldier. Private RANDY HILL (Parker Young, "Suburgatory"), on the other hand, loves it. He's the hyper-enthusiastic, hyper-goofy - just hyper - youngest brother who wants to be the gung-ho "GI Joe" military ideal.
The Hill brothers serve on the Rear Detachment (Rear D) unit, comprised of the soldiers left behind when everyone else is deployed, because they're not quite good enough to be sent overseas, yet not bad enough to be kicked out of the Army. These are the men and women who mow lawns at the base, sort mail, wash tanks, find lost dogs and maybe engage in a war game or two. But the Rear D's main job is taking care of deployed soldiers' families. Whatever they need, the Rear D soldiers do. And, in the event that something happens to a soldier overseas, the Rear D troops break the news to the family and become a supportive shoulder to cry on. It's a job that shifts each moment from the thrilling to the mundane to the emotional and back again.
Fort McGee is run by Command Sergeant Major DONALD CODY (Emmy Award winner Keith David, "Cloud Atlas," "The Cape"), a firm but fair man who served with the brothers' late father. Major Cody promised to look out for them, so he brought all the brothers to the base to fulfill that promise. Cody has seen it all and lost a foot to prove it - which no one can forget, probably since he never misses an opportunity to bring it up. Confident, funny, tough and beautiful, Sergeant JILL PEREZ (Angelique Cabral, "Friends with Benefits") is the same rank as Pete and leads the other Rear D platoon on base.
A military-set family comedy, ENLISTED centers on three brothers who, when the best of the best are sent overseas, stay behind to try to keep the base in order. Between hijacking tanks, inventing new drinking games and accidentally blowing up a fuel truck, they will inadvertently discover the key to strengthening their long-lost childhood bonds.
ENLISTED is produced by 20th Century Fox Television, and written and created by Kevin Biegel ("Cougar Town," "Scrubs," "South Park"). The series is executive-produced by Biegel and Mike Royce ("Men of a Certain Age," "Everybody Loves Raymond"). The pilot was directed by Phil Traill ("Suburgatory," RAISING HOPE).

Event Series - 24 - Live Another Day
24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY is a thrilling new tent-pole event series which will restart the clock on the groundbreaking and Emmy Award-winning drama franchise starring Kiefer Sutherland. Produced by 20th Century Fox Television, Imagine Television and Howard Gordon's Teakwood Lane Productions, 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY will make its historic debut in the summer of 2014 on FOX.
The high-octane saga reunites showrunner Howard Gordon with Sutherland and retains the real-time, fast-paced format with split screens and complex interweaving storylines, with 12 episodes representing 24 hours. The suspenseful event series once again follows the exploits of heroic agent JACK BAUER (Sutherland), taking up his story several years following the events of the final season. Once again, viewers will join Jack on a pulse-pounding ride in real time.
Originally premiering November 6, 2001, "24" was nominated for a total of 73 Emmy Awards, winning for Outstanding Drama Series in 2006. Over eight seasons, Kiefer Sutherland garnered seven Emmy Award nominations and one win for Outstanding Lead Actor - Drama Series. While the series gained global recognition, Sutherland's portrayal of the legendary character penetrated the American psyche like no other dramatic television character to become part of the cultural lexicon.
24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY is a production of 20th Century Fox Television and Imagine Television in association with Teakwood Lane Productions. Howard Gordon, Brian Grazer and Kiefer Sutherland will executive produce, along with an additional team to be announced. The original series, which had its last American broadcast on May 24, 2010, was created by Joel Surnow and Robert Cochran.

Event Series - Billy the Kid
From Emmy Award-winning executive producer Tom Fontana ("Homicide: Life on the Street," "OZ," "Borgia," "Copper") and Academy Award-winning executive producer Barry Levinson ("Homicide: Life on the Street," "OZ," "Borgia," "Copper," "Rain Man"), comes BILLY THE KID, an event series which explores the origin story of one of the Old West's most notorious outlaws. The series is set at a time when America was in its vibrant and colorful adolescence - from the 1860s slums of New York to the violent and lawless American West of the 1870s. Yet, despite its historical backdrop, BILLY THE KID is a story with surprising relevancy, focusing on America's twin obsession with two seemingly timeless subjects: celebrity and guns. Born William Henry McCarty, Billy the Kid was said to have killed 21 men - his first at 16 - before his own demise at the age of 21. A true original gangster, Billy the Kid was the first American celebrated in his own time as an outlaw hero. But the legend ultimately grew larger than the man himself and proved to be his undoing, as he spent the final years of his short life in a relentless battle to clear his own name. The series examines the various mythologies which have sprouted up about Billy's life, making use of all the conflicting facts to paint a more three-dimensional portrait of this American folk hero. BILLY THE KID is produced by Halfire-CORE Entertainment and The Levinson/Fontana Company, and will be written by Tom Fontana.
Event Series - Blood Brothers
Brother against brother, father against son, state against state, no other event in American history split our nation like the Civil War. BLOOD BROTHERS is based on the true story of the West Point Class of 1861. As our bitterly divided country tore itself in two over the issue of slavery, the West Point Brotherhood broke apart. Best friends, bonded in the intense crucible of the Academy, found themselves on opposite sides of a conflict that quickly became the bloodiest in U.S. history. For four violent years, these former comrades fought directly against each other, even as many of them rose from lowly second lieutenants to field generals. Throughout the conflict, however, they never lost their love and esteem for each other, which often resulted in many acts of kindness that stretched across enemy lines. Some died. Others were broken by the conflict. But every one of the Brothers was utterly changed by a war that redefined America, and still resonates today. BLOOD BROTHERS is written by Emmy Award winner Bruce McKenna ("Band of Brothers," "The Pacific"), and will be executive-produced by McKenna, Gary A. Randall ("The Glades," "Saving Grace") and Tim Bogart ("Majors & Minors," "Spinning Gold").
Event Series - The Run of His Life - The People V OJ Simpson
There are few truly unifying events in American life. When something happens that makes the entire country stop and take notice, we remember it forever. Everybody remembers where they were when O.J. Simpson, riding in a white Bronco, led the police on a low-speed chase all over Los Angeles. This marked the emergence of the 24-hour news cycle and the birth of reality television. Based on Jeffrey Toobin's best-selling book of the same name, THE RUN OF HIS LIFE: THE PEOPLE V. O.J. SIMPSON (wt), will be written by Golden Globe Award winners Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski ("The People vs. Larry Flint," "Man on the Moon," "Ed Wood"), and will take viewers behind the scenes of "The Trial of The Century," driven by the nonstop plot of a courtroom thriller and presenting the story of the trial as it has never been told. Nina Jacobson ("The Hunger Games" franchise, "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" franchise") and Brad Simpson ("World War Z," "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" franchise) are executive producers.
Event Series - Shogun
Based on the best-selling 1975 novel by James Clavell, SHOGUN opens a window into the world of a rarely seen feudal Japan. Set in 1600, the story is told from the perspective of British hero John Blackthorne, a sailor who rises from outsider to samurai, while being used as a pawn in Japanese leader Toranaga's struggle to reach the top of the ruling chain, or Shogun. A classic for the ages, SHOGUN is both a cross-cultural exploration of Blackthorne's journey away from the European way of life, and a star-crossed love story, as he falls for the magnificent samurai, Lady Mariko, the married confidant to Toranaga. Michael De Luca ("Moneyball," "The Social Network") and Michaela Clavell will executive-produce the series. Nigel Williams ("Moby Dick," "Elizabeth 1") will write the screenplay.
Event Series - Wayward Pines
Imagine the perfect American town... beautiful homes, manicured lawns, children playing safely in the streets. Now imagine never being able to leave. You have no communica-tion with the outside world. You think you're going insane. You must be in Wayward Pines.
Based on the best-selling novel "Pines" by Blake Crouch and brought to life by sus-penseful storyteller M. Night Shyamalan ("The Sixth Sense," "Signs"), WAYWARD PINES is the intense new mind-bending event thriller evocative of the classic cult hit "Twin Peaks."
Secret Service Agent ETHAN BURKE drives to the bucolic town of Wayward Pines, ID, to find two missing federal agents. Ethan was the logical choice for the mission. He's one of the best Secret Service agents in the Seattle office. He's also the man who knew missing agent KATE HEWSON better than anyone. They were partners. They were more than that. Their relationship nearly destroyed Ethan's marriage. Kate transferred to Boise and Ethan thought he'd never see her again. Now, Kate and her new Secret Ser-vice partner, BILL EVANS, are nowhere to be found. But just as Ethan spots the sign that says "Welcome to Wayward Pines, Where Paradise is Home!," a truck slams into his car.
When Ethan wakes up in the Wayward Pines Hospital, he remembers his name, his ad-dress in Seattle and the accident on the outskirts of town. He knows he's a Secret Ser-vice Agent who came to Wayward Pines to investigate the disappearance of two agents. What he can't figure out is what's wrong with this eerily perfect little town. None of the phones work. He can't get through to his wife back home or his boss at the Secret Ser-vice. His wallet, ID, money, phone...everything is gone. And no one will help him.
Back home in Seattle, Ethan's wife, THERESA, gets a call from Ethan's boss at the Se-cret Service, ADAM HASSLER. Ethan is missing. No other information is available until early testing shows that Ethan was never in his car that was recovered on the side of the road outside of Wayward Pines. They're still investigating. This isn't enough for Theresa. Along with their teenage son, BEN, Theresa sets out on her own search for Ethan.
The mystery only deepens as Ethan employs his intelligence and tireless determination to solve the mystery of this unsettling town. Challenged at every turn by the town's die-hard residents, Ethan's investigation only turns up more questions, the most important of which is: What's wrong with Wayward Pines?
WAYWARD PINES is a production of FX Productions. The series is created and written by Chad Hodge ("The Playboy Club," "Runaway") and executive-produced by Shyama-lan, Hodge, Donald De Line ("Green Lantern," "The Italian Job") and Ashwin Rajan ("After Earth").
Only people who really know the streets can win the battle on the streets.
In the gritty new action-drama GANG RELATED, Detective RYAN LOPEZ (Ramon Rodriguez, "Battle Los Angeles," "The Wire") is a rising star in Los Angeles' elite Gang Task Force. What the world doesn't know is that long before Ryan was a cop, he pledged allegiance to a different band of brothers - a powerful Latino gang called Los Angelicos.
When Ryan's best friend and partner is senselessly killed by a notorious gang member, Ryan teams up with longtime Task Force member CASSIUS GREEN (RZA, "G.I. Joe: Retaliation," "Californication"), who has been at the forefront of the city's war on organized crime. In this war between law enforcement and gangs, the series explores how every villain has a noble cause, and every hero has a dark side.
Despite his profession, Ryan is still beholden to the gang's leader, JAVIER ACOSTA (Cliff Curtis, "Live Free or Die Hard," "Training Day"), the father figure Ryan has tried to make proud his entire life and the man who masterminded his entry into the police force. It's a secret that has been held for a decade by Ryan, Javier and Javier's sons: cold-blooded gang lieutenant CARLOS (guest star Rey Gallegos, "Sons of Anarchy," "24"); and Ryan's childhood best friend, straight-laced investment banker DANIEL (Jay Hernandez, "Last Resort," "Hostel").
But Ryan is even more dedicated to being a cop. He is respected by his team, including TAE KIM (Sung Kang, "Fast Five," "Live Free or Die Hard"), VANESSA "VEE" HAREL (Inbar Lavi, "Underemployed," "Street Kings 2: Motor City") and Task Force leader SAM CHAPEL (Terry O'Quinn, "Lost"), Ryan's other surrogate father figure, whose estranged daughter, JESSICA SHAW (Shantel VanSanten, "One Tree Hill," "The Final Destination"), is the city's Assistant District Attorney.
Ryan's education comes from the streets. And that schooling will work to his advantage, as he, Cassius and the rest of the task force take aim at the city's most dangerous gangs, while his increasing sense of loyalty to his task force family helps him determine which side of the law he is really on.
GANG RELATED is from Chris Morgan Productions, Skeeter Rosenbaum Productions, Imagine Entertainment and 20th Century Fox Television. The series is created and written by Chris Morgan ("Wanted," "Fast Five"). The series is executive-produced by Morgan, Scott Rosenbaum ("The Shield," "Chuck"), Academy Award-winning producer Brian Grazer ("24," "A Beautiful Mind") and Francie Calfo ("The Great Escape," "The Playboy Club"). Allen Hughes ("Dead Presidents," "Book of Eli," "Menace II Society") directed and served as an executive producer on the pilot.

JUNIOR MASTERCHEF will give budding cooks the exciting opportunity to showcase their talent, culinary smarts and passion for food through a series of delicious challenges and cook-offs. Similar to MASTERCHEF, Ramsay will be joined by restaurateur and winemaker Joe Bastianich (Del Posto, Eataly) and acclaimed chef Graham Elliot (Graham Elliot, Graham Elliot Bistro) on the JUNIOR MASTERCHEF judging panel. Together, the celebrated food experts will coach and encourage the promising hopefuls to cook like a pro and teach them the tricks of the trade along the way.
After a nationwide search, 24 of the best junior home cooks in the country will create their best seafood, pasta or dessert dish and present it to the judges in the audition round. Those who impress the judges will continue in the competition, during which they will face exciting challenges - including taking over a celebrated fine dining restaurant - until one talented kid is named America's first-ever JUNIOR MASTERCHEF.
JUNIOR MASTERCHEF is produced by Shine America and One Potato Two Potato, and is based on the format created by Franc Roddam and Shine. Shine International handles distribution for the MASTERCHEF format. Elisabeth Murdoch, Eden Gaha, Paul Franklin, Robin Ashbrook, Gordon Ramsay, Adeline Ramage Rooney, Patricia Llewellyn and Ben Adler serve as executive producers.

MURDER POLICE is a new animated comedy series that expands the boundaries of the cop show genre as only animation can. From David A. Goodman (FAMILY GUY) and rising writer/animator/performer Jason Ruiz, the series follows a dedicated, but inept detective and his colleagues - some perverted, some corrupt, some just plain lazy - in a twisted city precinct.
At the center of this maelstrom is MANUEL SANCHEZ (Ruiz), a neurotic and nerdy cop who aspires to be a good policeman, but his efforts to solve crimes are constantly put in jeopardy by his own clumsiness and the incompetence of his fellow detectives. Making matters worse, his egotistical, bribe-accepting partner, TOMMY MARGARETTI (Will Sasso, "The Three Stooges," "MADtv"), a tough, rule-breaking "bad cop," can't interrogate a suspect without beating him up.
The other detectives in the precinct include RANDALL HICKOX (Chi McBride, "Golden Boy"), a cop with little interest in police work. He's lost a lot of partners, hates his job and often hands off his resume to crime scene witnesses. Randall's newest partner, JUSTICE (Jane Lynch, GLEE), is a self-righteous working mother whose child is lodged in a baby bjorn that is permanently secured around her chest. Undercover cop DONEL is in so deep that he often does things of questionable legality. They all are supervised by the perpetually annoyed Captain JOHN RUSHOUR (Peter Atencio, "Key and Peele"), a brusque, overweight old-school cop who expects failure and can't be bothered to even get out of his Rascal scooter.
Manuel's ex-wife, ROSA (Justina Machado, "Private Practice," "Six Feet Under"), is a defense lawyer who remains irritated that Manuel always put his job first. But they remain bonded in the upbringing of their son, MARIO (Ruiz), a troubled teen who is less impressed with his father than he is by the criminals he catches.
These cops often find themselves mildly interested in the most recent crime victim, but completely obsessed with who "destroyed" the bathroom. Nevertheless, where there's a mystery, Manuel somehow finds a way to solve it.
MURDER POLICE is produced by Bento Box Animation (BOB'S BURGERS) and 20th Century Fox Television. The series is co-created by David A. Goodman (FAMILY GUY) and Jason Ruiz - one of the writers/animators discovered through the Fox Inkubation program. Goodman serves as executive producer and showrunner, and Ruiz is co-executive producer.

"...Sometimes, finding justice in this world is like looking for a needle in an infinite field of haystacks. So we must have the law as a good fallback position." - Keegan Deane
RAKE, a character-driven drama based on the Australian nominee for Best Television Drama series of the same name, follows the comedic and chaotic life of criminal defense lawyer KEEGAN DEANE (Academy Award nominee and Emmy Award winner Greg Kinnear, "Little Miss Sunshine," "The Kennedys").
On a single day, Keegan Deane is described as many things. His ex-wife-calls him "unreliable"; his son calls him a "pal"; most judges think he's "an outrage"; the IRS calls him a "defendant"; and to his former dealer, he's simply a "tragic loss."
Brilliant, frustratingly charming and with zero filter, Keegan is one of life's great addicts. His staggering lack of discretion and inability to self-censor land him the cases that nobody else will touch, but behind that lies a resolute optimism and belief in justice that fuel his dogged determination to defend those who seem beyond redemption. He always tries to do the right thing, but at the same time struggles to save himself from the many self-destructive elements that plague his own life, such as his overindulgence of various excesses, including women and gambling.
Keegan gets a majority of his cases from BEN (John Ortiz, "Silver Linings Playbook," "Luck"), his best friend since law school. Ben is married to SCARLET (Necar Zadegan, "Emily Owens, M.D.," "The Event"), another of Keegan's old friends and, as Assistant District Attorney for the city of Los Angeles, quite often his opponent in court.
In addition to Keegan's cases within the justice system, the series follows his personal trials and tribulations, including his mounting debt to his bookie and his overlapping liaisons with various women, including MELISSA "MIKKI" PARTRIDGE (Bojana Novakovic, "Edge of Darkness," "Drag Me To Hell"), Keegan's favorite prostitute and de-facto love interest. Also among his predicaments is his ongoing battle with the IRS. But always there to help Keegan clean up his mess is LEANNE ZANDER (Tara Summers, "Ringer," "Damages"), his extremely put-upon, no-nonsense assistant.
Meanwhile, Keegan's ex-wife, MADDY (Miranda Otto, "The Starter Wife," "War of the Worlds"), a psychologist by profession, begrudgingly acts as his therapist. She also is the mother of their hormonal son, FINN (Ian Colletti, "Phoebe In Wonderland"), who displays many of the same proclivities as his father.
Each morning, Keegan tends to wake up bruised - physically, emotionally, spiritually. Usually it's a combination of them all. Then it's out into the world - onto the battleground of Keegan's day.
RAKE is produced by Fedora Entertainment and Essential Media & Entertainment Pty Ltd., in association with Sony Pictures Television. The series is created and written by Peter Duncan (creator of the original Australian series). The series is executive-produced by Duncan, Peter Tolan ("Rescue Me," "Analyze This"), Michael Wimer ("2012"), Richard Roxburgh ("Rake," "Mission: Impossible II," "Moulin Rouge") and Ian Collie ("Rake"). Kinnear and Leslie Tolan ("Rescue Me," "The Job") are co-executive producers. Sam Raimi ("Oz the Great and Powerful," "Spider-Man" franchise) directed and served as an executive producer on the pilot.

Welcome to SLEEPY HOLLOW, the thrilling new mystery-adventure drama from co-creators/executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci ("Star Trek" and "Transformers" franchises, "Fringe").
In this modern-day retelling of Washington Irving's classic, ICHABOD CRANE (Tom Mison, "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen") is resurrected and pulled two and a half centuries through time to unravel a mystery that dates all the way back to the founding fathers. Revived alongside Ichabod is the infamous Headless Horseman who is on a murderous rampage in present-day Sleepy Hollow. Bound to the Headless Horseman by a blood spell cast on the battlefield of the American Revolution, Ichabod quickly realizes that stopping Headless is just the beginning, as the resurrected rider is but the first of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
As this re-invented Ichabod finds himself in present-day Sleepy Hollow, he discovers a town and a world he no longer recognizes. All that is brutally familiar are Headless and Ichabod's determination to annihilate this immortal being. It's a mission he must complete quickly, as Headless already has viciously slain Sheriff AUGUST CORBIN (guest star Clancy Brown, "Cowboys & Aliens," "Carnivale"). Grey served both as mentor and father figure to Detective ABBIE MILLS (Nicole Beharie, "Shame," "American Violet"), a young cop whose own supernatural experiences help her form an unlikely bond with Ichabod. But Sleepy Hollow's head of police, Captain FRANK IRVING (Orlando Jones, "The Chicago 8," "Drumline"), isn't buying any of this.
In fact, the only person who is on Abbie's side is Ichabod. His extensive first-hand knowledge of our secret American history, coupled with her superior profiling and modern threat assessment skills, will make them a formidable duo as they work together to triumph over evil. The complex pasts of Ichabod and Abbie, from Ichabod's inclusion in the powerful and secretive Freemasons Society and the ghostly appearance of his late wife, KATRINA (Katia Winter, "Dexter"), to Abbie's childhood visions, will help them solve the intricate puzzles of Sleepy Hollow in order to protect its future.
As history repeats itself, the oddly-linked pair will draw on the real stories and hallowed secrets this nation was founded on in their quest to stop an increasingly vicious cycle of evil.
SLEEPY HOLLOW is from K/O Paper Products in association with 20th Century Fox Television. The series is co-created by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Phillip Iscove and Len Wiseman ("Hawaii Five-0," "Underworld" and "Total Recall"). The series is executive-produced by Kurtzman, Orci, Wiseman and Heather Kadin. Iscove serves as supervising producer. Wiseman directed the pilot.

Father knows best...well, sort of.
SURVIVING JACK is a new single-camera comedy based on best-selling author Justin Halpern's autobiographical book, "I Suck at Girls." Set in 1990s Southern California, the ensemble series is about a man becoming a dad, as his son is becoming a man, in a time before "coming of age" was something you could Google.
JACK DUNLEVY (Emmy Award nominee Christopher Meloni, "True Blood," "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit"), ex-military and an oncologist, is a no-bull kind of guy. He sees little, if any, need to sugar-coat the truth. Up to this point, Jack's been the parent who's left for work early, come home late, eaten the big piece of chicken, yelled at his kids and gone to bed. But after years of deftly raising and running the family, his wife, JOANNE, is going back to law school, leaving Jack as a full-time parent for the very first time.
Jack's teenage son, FRANKIE (Connor Buckley, "Deception"), is just starting his freshman year in high school. Lanky, quick-witted, self-deprecating and not entirely sure of himself, all Frankie wants to do is fly under the radar. But over the summer, he grew 10 inches, threw a no-hitter against a rival team and started to attract girls - all of which put him in some awkward situations - especially when the only base he's ever been to is on the field.
Fortunately, no matter how embarrassing the situations Frankie gets himself into are, Jack is there to pick up the pieces and lead his son to manhood...with the least gentle hand possible. Although Jack may be unorthodox, unfiltered and sometimes even unkind in his approach, his intentions are always good. For better or for worse, he's Frankie's only resource now.
Even more confusing to Jack than Frankie's growing pains are those of his daughter, RACHEL (Claudia Lee, "Hart of Dixie"), a gorgeous and super-smart 17-year-old high school junior. Up until now, Rachel's done everything right. No longer under the watchful eye of her mother, she's now a handful. Jack considers the mind of the teenage girl beyond his (or anyone's) comprehension - a fact which Rachel will take full advantage of.
In addition to disciplining his own children, Jack must keep a watchful eye on Frankie's best friends: GEORGE (Kevin Hernandez, "Get the Gringo," "The Sitter"), an overly confident Mexican-American with a big vocabulary; and MIKEY (newcomer Tyler Foden), a tough kid from a broken home.
Only time will tell if Jack's blunt and unpredictable parenting style will keep his kids out of trouble, or if Joanne will have to put down the law books and somehow step in to keep the family order. Until then, Jack's the dad the Dunlevy kids always wished they had - most of the time. For someone who is used to taking care of people with cancer, Jack's got this...right?
SURVIVING JACK is produced by Doozer in association with Warner Bros. Television. Based on best-selling author Justin Halpern's book, "I Suck at Girls," the series is written by Halpern ("$#*! My Dad Says") and Patrick Schumacker ("$#*! My Dad Says"). The series is executive-produced by Emmy Award nominee Bill Lawrence ("Spin City," "Scrubs," "Clone High," "Cougar Town"), Halpern, Schumacker and Jeff Ingold. Victor Nelli ("Scrubs," "The Bernie Mac Show") directed the pilot.

Us and Them
When two people finally come together, they never come together alone.
US & THEM is an outrageous but authentic ensemble single-camera comedy about a pair of young lovers, whose path to happily-ever-after is complicated by the screwed-up circus of people closest to them.
New York pharmaceutical copywriter GAVIN (Emmy Award nominee Jason Ritter, "Parenthood," "The Event") is a neurotic Woody Allen-ish personality with indie-rock looks, who has never been in love. On the other hand, pretty Pennsylvania-based printing press employee STACEY (Alexis Bledel, "Mad Men," "Gilmore Girls") has a subtle wit and has been engaged before. For the past six months, they have been flirting online and finally agree to meet...with their best friends in tow for double-date safety.
Gavin and Stacey's wingmen are, respectively, CHRIS "ARCHIE" ARCHULETTA (Dustin Ybarra, "We Bought a Zoo") and NESSA (Ashlie Atkinson, "Inside Man," "Rescue Me"). Archie is often wrong but never in doubt and the loudest, most outrageous character in any room. Nessa is brutally blunt - actually, just brutal, in general - with a rock-a-billy look, complete with messy tattoos (many of which she doesn't remember getting).
Gavin lives in an apartment below his parents, PAM (Emmy Award nominee Jane Kaczmarek, "Whitney," "Raising the Bar," "Malcolm in the Middle") and MICHAEL (Kurt Fuller, "Psych," "Midnight in Paris"). With zero filter and little volume control, Pam is fearful she is aging and that the good times may be behind her. Michael thinks of himself as the family's voice of reason. He is wrong.
Dillsburg, PA, is a tiny dot of grit in the green countryside. Stacey lives there with her widowed mom, GWEN (Kerri Kenney, "Reno 911!"). BRIAN (guest star Michael Ian Black, "Ed"), Stacey's uncle, and her late father's brother, has taken on the role of family protector. He is a simple man who is amazed by the little things in life...like white Toblerones. Stacey's long-distance romance unnerves both Gwen and Brian, who fear she might fall in love and move away to the big city.
When all of these characters collide to create a salty but sweet romantic comedy, we wonder not if the two leads will get together, but how they ever will stay together. After all, it's complicated enough trying to make a relationship work. But the biggest complications of all are the friends and family who are part of the package deal.
US & THEM is produced by Sony Pictures Television and BBC Worldwide Productions. It is based on the hugely popular and multiple-award-winning BBC series "Gavin and Stacey," which was created and written by James Corden and Ruth Jones. US & THEM is adapted and written by David J. Rosen ("I Just Want My Pants Back"), and executive-produced by Rosen, Jane Tranter, Julie Gardner, Corden and Jones. Steve Coogan and Henry Normal serve as executive producers for Baby Cow Productions. Michael Patrick Jann ("Drop Dead Gorgeous") directed the pilot.

AMERICAN DAD, the Emmy Award-nominated animated series that follows staunch GOP supporter and CIA agent STAN SMITH(Seth MacFarlane) and the misadventures of his unconventional family in LangleyFalls, VA, returns for an eighth season.
Stan's blissfully unaware wife, FRANCINE(Wendy Schaal), has an unfaltering loyalty that allows her to turn a blind eye toward Stan's unabashed arrogance. Meanwhile, Stan constantly butts heads with his 18-year-old left-wing activist daughter, HAYLEY (Rachael MacFarlane), who knows just how to push her father's buttons, whether it's by helping the homeless, demanding women's rights or advocating gun control. Hayley's 14-year-old brother is the geeky, yet confident STEVE (Scott Grimes), a kid who spends his time playing video games and obsessing about the opposite sex.
The Smith cabinet is rounded out by two rather unconventional members: ROGER (Seth MacFarlane), the sassy, sarcastic and routinely inappropriate space alien living in the attic, who is constantly trying on new disguises, and with them, new personalities; and KLAUS (Dee BradleyBaker), the attention-starved goldfish with the brain of a German Olympic skier who always throws in his two cents, regardless of whether anyone is listening.
This screwball family, full of radically different personalities, is just trying to figure out how to love and trust one another in a bi-partisan world. And with a guy like Stan in charge of national security, it's guaranteed to be one hilarious ride.
In the upcoming eighth season, the Smiths are back with more off-the-wall exploits that find Steve unsuccessfully attempting touse a CIA cloning machine to create a super-hot prom date; Francine teaching Steve how to shoplift; Stan teaching Steve how to hunt deer; Roger chasing ghosts; and Francine trying to relive the Smith kids' childhood by taking a group trip to the "Familyland" theme park that ends up being anything but family-friendly. Guest voices next season include Mariah Carey, Ellie Kemper, Zooey Deschanel, Gary Busey, Thandie Newton, Mark Cuban, Cloris Leachman, Stanley Tucci, Nat Faxon and Jacki Weaver.
AMERICAN DAD is a 20th Century Fox Television production. Seth MacFarlane, Mike Barker and Matt Weitzman serve asco-creators and executive producers. Steve Callaghan also serves as an executive producer and showrunner.

No other show in TV history has proven to be a force in the entertainment industry like AMERICAN IDOL. AMERICAN IDOL solidified itself as the No. 1 television show for nine consecutive seasons and, now in its 12th season, still remains a Top 5 program. IDOL is the gold standard and the only TV singing competition show to produce hit recording artists. From the first-ever IDOL winner, Kelly Clarkson, who continues to dominate the charts with three Grammy Awards under her belt, to Season 11 winner Phillip Phillips, whose debut single, "Home," has become the best-selling single of any IDOL to date, AMERICAN IDOL is a bona fide cultural phenomenon.
Its impact on the entertainment industry resonates beyond the scope of television. The series has brought generations together with a common goal: to discover the next music superstar. Over the past 12 seasons, IDOL finalists have released more than 200 albums, scored 382 No.1 billboard hits, garnered more than 250 million iTunes downloads and have been certified with 88 Gold and 71 Platinum records. IDOL contestants have conquered Broadway, television and film and have won numerous awards and accolades, including American Country Music Awards, Country Music Awards,Grammy Awards and an Academy Award.
As IDOL enters its landmark 13th season in January 2014, the search continues to find amazing talent from across the nation. Hosted by Ryan Seacrest (@RyanSeacrest), the series empowers contestants and viewers to share their voices in deciding who will be America's next singing superstar.
Every year, tens of thousands of hopefuls from across the nation audition for a shot at stardom. The show's judges travel across the country in search of the next AMERICAN IDOL. They narrow down the competitors to a select group of semifinalists who sing their hearts out each week in front of a studio audience and television viewers.
The judges have their say after every performance, but it's the viewing public that determines who will advance to become a finalist and who will go home. Telephone, text message and online voting begin immediately after each live performance show, and the results are announced during the following night's live broadcast.
Earlier this season, AMERICAN IDOL launched an all-new app with special features that give fans the ultimate IDOL experience, allowing them to join real-time conversations on Facebook and Twitter with AT&T IDOL Nation, keep up with their favorite judges and contestants, watch interviews and cast all of their votes in a unique new voting experience using the AT&T AMERICAN IDOL voting platform.
Eventually the competition is whittled down to two finalists who compete for a major recording contract with 19 Recordings and the AMERICAN IDOL title. Past winners Clarkson, Ruben Studdard, Fantasia Barrino, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Hicks, Jordin Sparks, David Cook, Kris Allen, Lee DeWyze, Scotty McCreery and Phillips, as well as fan-favorites Jennifer Hudson, Adam Lambert, Chris Daughtry and Katharine McPhee, have all become household names and made their marks on the recording industry.
AMERICAN IDOL is produced by 19 Entertainment, adivision of Core Media Group, and FremantleMedia North America. The series is created and executive-produced by Simon Fuller, CEO, XIX Entertainment. Cecile Frot-Coutaz, FremantleMedia; Trish Kinane, FremantleMedia NorthAmerica; Ken Warwick, FremantleMedia North America; and Nigel Lythgoe, CEO, Nigel Lythgoe Productions also serve as executive producers.

The animated comedy BOB'S BURGERS returns for a well-done fourth season.
The cult-hit animated show about a man, his family and their burger joint follows the ups and downs of BOB (H. Jon Benjamin), who runs Bob's Burgers with the help of his wife and their three kids.

Despite the greasy counters and lousy location, Bob and his family are determined to make every "Grand Re-Re-Re-opening" a success.
Bob's wife, LINDA (John Roberts), stands by her man, though she's easily distracted. Their eldest daughter, 13-year-old TINA (Dan Mintz), has minimal social skills and is a hopeless romantic. Middle child GENE (Eugene Mirman), the only boy in the family, is an aspiring musician with a thirst for life. LOUISE (KristenSchaal) is the bunny ears-wearing youngest daughter with an off-kilter sense of humor that makes her somewhat of a liability in the kitchen - and with the public.

The fourth season will feature guest voices from some of the top names in comedy, including Molly Shannon, Bobcat Goldthwait and Jordan Peele, as well as returning guest voices Kevin Kline, Megan Mullally, Ken Jeong, Rob Huebel, JohnMichael Higgins, Will Forte, Paul F. Tompkins and Sarah and Laura Silverman.

BONES, a darkly amusing procedural entering its ninth season, is inspired by real-life forensic anthropologist and novelist Kathy Reichs.
DR. TEMPERANCE BRENNAN (Emily Deschanel) is a highly skilled forensic anthropologist who works at the Jeffersonian Institutein Washington, D.C., and writes novels on the side. When the standard methods of identifying a body are useless (ie. the remains are so badly decomposed,burned or destroyed), law enforcement calls on Brennan for her uncanny ability to read clues left behind in the victim's bones.
While most people can't handle Brennan's intelligence, her drive for the truth or the way she flings herself headlong into every investigation, SPECIAL AGENT SEELEY BOOTH (David Boreanaz) of the FBI's Homicide Investigations Unit is an exception. A former Army sniper, Booth mistrusts science and scientists - the "squints," as he calls them - who poreover the physical evidence of a crime. But even he cannot deny that the combination of his people-smarts and Brennan's scientific acumen makes them aformidable duo, both professionally and personally.
Aside from Booth, Brennan is most comfortable with her equally brilliant colleagues at the Jeffersonian's Medico-Legal Lab. ANGELA MONTENEGRO (Michaela Conlin), an artist who specializes in reconstructing facial features and crime scenes, is Brennan's earthy and bawdy best friend. Angela is married to and has a son with DR. JACK HODGINS (TJThyne), affectionately known as "the slime and bug guy," a conspiracy theorist and expert on insects, spores and minerals. DR. CAMILLE "CAM" SAROYAN (TamaraTaylor), the street-smart and centered coroner, must wrangle all the geniuses under her purview. Lending his professional expertise to Brennan and Booth is DR. LANCE SWEETS (John Francis Daley), a brilliant young FBI psychologist who is equally adept at profiling murderers and providing impromptu therapy to his co-workers.
At the conclusion of Season Eight, tech genius and serial killer Christopher Pelant (guest star Andrew Leeds) once again returned to toy with the Jeffersonian team, orchestrating a string ofmurders, all of which involved FBI agents with close ties to Booth. Pelant then set his aim on Sweets, while the team raced to reach Sweets before Pelant did. With Booth having become one of Pelant's potential targets, Brennan found herself re-evaluating their relationship, resulting in a marriage proposal that Booth happily accepted. But a call from Pelant brought those plans to an endwhen he threatened Booth and forced him to secretly trade his nuptials for the lives of innocent people.
Season Nine will begin with Brennan unable to make peace with Booth's apparent rejection, remaining unaware of his pact with Pelant. She will question the viability of their relationship, while Booth will be forced to win back her trust without ever revealing the reason for turning her down. If Brennan's love for him is to survive, Booth ultimately concludes that Pelant must die - a moral conundrum with which he will wrestle throughout the season.

Entering its 11th season, FAMILY GUY continues to entertain fans with its shocking humor, infamous cutaway gags and epic episodes. Since its debut, the show has reached cult status among fans, and its breakout star, a talking baby, has become one of the greatest TV villains of all time. FAMILY GUY has racked up numerous awards, including an Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Comedy Series, only the second animated series in television history to be honored with such a distinction.
The show follows the adventures of an endearingly ignorant dad, PETER GRIFFIN (Seth MacFarlane), and his hilariously odd family of middle-class New Englanders in Quahog, RI. LOIS (Alex Borstein) is Peter's wife, a stay-at-home mom with no patience for her family's antics. Then there are their kids: 18-year-old MEG (Mila Kunis) is an outcast at school and the Griffin family punching bag; 13-year-old CHRIS (Seth Green) is a socially awkward teen who doesn't have a clue about the opposite sex; and one-year-old STEWIE (MacFarlane) is a diabolically clever baby whose burgeoning sexuality is very much a work in progress. Rounding out the Griffin household is BRIAN (MacFarlane), the family dog and a ladies man who is one step away from AA.
In the upcoming season, the Griffins embark on a hilarious trip to Italy, Peter discovers that he has a vestigial twin growing out of his neck and a love triangle emerges between Stewie, Brian and Stewie's teddy bear, Rupert. Also, Peter and QUAGMIRE (MacFarlane) become a singing/songwriting team, in the vein of Simon & Garfunkel.
Guest voices scheduled for the 11th season include Conan O'Brien, Jeff Daniels, Michelle Dockery, Tony Sirico, Yvette Nicole Brown and Gary Cole.

Heading into its intense, spell binding second season, hit drama THE FOLLOWING will return as we catch up with Ryan Hardy, who has since withdrawn from consulting with the FBI after the shocking events at the end of the first season. After several bizarre incidents, Ryan realizes that Carroll's bloody web of murder is not over.
THE FOLLOWING is a psychological thriller from creator/executive producer Kevin Williamson ("The Vampire Diaries," "Dawson's Creek," the "Scream" franchise), starring Golden Globe winner and Emmy Award nominee Kevin Bacon.
When notorious serial killer JOE CARROLL (James Purefoy) escaped from death row, the FBI called former agent RYAN HARDY (Bacon) to consult on the case, as he was the one responsible for Carroll's capture in 2003, after Carroll murdered 14 female students on the Virginia college campus where he taught literature. Ryan, working closely with an FBI team, including MIKE WESTON (Shawn Ashmore) and FBI Specialist DEBRA PARKER (Annie Parisse), uncovered that Carroll was covertly communicating with a network of followers while in prison. Challenged with the ever-growing web of murders orchestrated by the devious Carroll, the FBI quickly learned that they were up against not one, but a cult of killers.
As unimaginable events continued to unfold throughout the first season - including the kidnapping of Carroll's son, JOEY MATTHEWS (newcomer Kyle Catlett), by followers EMMA HILL (Valorie Curry), JACOB WELLS (Nico Tortorella) and PAUL TORRES (AdanCanto); another prison escape by Carroll; and the plotted reunion of Carroll with ex-wife, CLAIRE MATTHEWS (Natalie Zea) - the FBI's investigations led them to uncover the depth of Carroll's cult and the larger plan that Carroll had instore. The series' initial season saw a number of casualties along the way, including Jacob's emotional killing of Paul, the kidnapping of Agent Parker that ended in her death and Emma's murder of Jacob.
Meanwhile, Ryan raced desperately to stop Carroll before his endgame reached its deadly conclusion. The explosive first season finale featured the highly anticipated face-off between Ryan and Carroll, ending in Carroll's ultimate demise and leaving Ryan's true love, Claire, hanging on for her life.

Entering its fifth season, GLEE is a musical comedy about a group of ambitious and talented students who dream of stardom but struggle with life in the real world.
Since its debut, GLEE has built a loyal fanbase of "Gleeks"; made tracksuits, musicals and outcasts cool again; attracted A-list guest stars from Kate Hudson to Sarah Jessica Parker and Gwyneth Paltrow; covered music from Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga and Madonna; and received prestigious awards and nominations from the Emmy Awards to the Writers Guild. Its cast has traveled to the White House, sold out an internationa lconcert tour and was featured in a 3D movie.
For the past four seasons, the glee club's fearless leader has been WILL SCHUESTER (Matthew Morrison), a talented young teacher whose main objective is to take the club to Nationals. This past season, his co-captain has been recent graduate FINN HUDSON (Cory Monteith). His aspiring stars and McKinley's finest include the squeaky clean MARLEY(Melissa Benoist), debonair BLAINE (Darren Criss), visionary ARTIE (Kevin McHale), contentious KITTY (Becca Tobin), charming JAKE (Jacob Artist),dimwitted BRITTANY (Heather Morris) and quirky SAM (Chord Overstreet), among other talented students. These eager kids are determined to win, even when they find themselves face-to-face with arch-nemesis SUE SYLVESTER (EmmyAward-winning actress Jane Lynch), the conniving cheerleading coach.
Last year's graduates and aspiring singers, RACHEL (Lea Michelle) and KURT (Chris Colfer), packed their bags for New York and enrolled at a prestigious performing arts school, NYADA, where they made new friends and learned the cruel realities of college. These naïve freshmen moved into a Brooklyn loft, signed up for internships, auditioned for Broadway shows and gained a roommate when SANTANA (Naya Rivera) decided to move to the Big Apple.
Next season, the show will pick up where it left off and continue to follow the journey of the NYADA students and the kids of New Directions. The school year will continue at McKinley High, where the glee club's win at Regionals puts them on the path to possible back-to-back winsat Nationals. Meanwhile, in New York, we find out if Rachel lands the lead role in her first Broadway production and Blaine plans his proposal to Kurt.

Now in its 11th season, unscripted series HELL'S KITCHEN finds its head chef Gordon Ramsay continuing to spice up the program with new challenges and new rewards.
Since its season premiere in March, a new batch of aspiring restaurateurs have braved Ramsay and his fiery command of the kitchen as he has put the competitors through an intense culinary academy to prove they possess the right combination of ingredients to win the life-changing grand prize: a head chef position working under Executive Chef Jeremy Berlin at Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars Palace.
Already this season, the chefs have left the pleasantries at the door as the pressure to impress Chef Ramsay has reached a boiling point. With only ten chefs remaining in the competition, the contestants must continue to prove their ability to work in teams before Chef Ramsay determines which chefs are worthy of a black jacket. Rewards for upcoming challenge winners include a glamorous photo shoot, a shopping spree and a luxurious day on a ranch, complete with caviar tasting. The losing teams, however, will be required to clean the HELL'S KITCHEN dorms until they are spic-and-span and peel pounds and pounds of potatoes and onions, as well as iron linens and polish and vacuum the restaurant before dinner service.
As the competition progresses, the number of contestants will be whittled down until only two chefs are left to compete for the ultimate prize and fulfill their dreams of working in the culinary industry as the winner of HELL'S KITCHEN.
HELL'S KITCHEN is produced by ITV StudiosAmerica in association with A. Smith & Co. Productions. Arthur Smith, KentWeed and Gordon Ramsay serve as executive producers.

After more than a decade of running restaurants in some of the world's top hotels, Gordon Ramsay knows first hand the crucial importance of surpassing guests' highest expectations.
In its debut season, HOTEL was last summer's highest-rated new series. Now Ramsay is back for a second season, hitting the road to fix some of America's most horrendous hotels, troubled inns and struggling resorts, many of which are on the brink of closure. Ramsay will travel to locations including Applegate, OR; Las Cruces, NM; Longview, WA, Pipestone, MN; West Dover, VT; and Woodbury, CT.
To come to grips with the problems, Ramsay will endure hotels at their worst - from filthy bedrooms and mold-ridden bathrooms, to dreadful room service and incompetent staff - all so unsuspecting guests don't have to. After he has uncovered the most pressing issues at each place, Ramsay will put hapless hotel owners and employees to work as he attempts to turn around their failing establishments, doing all he can to rescue these floundering hotels. Some owners will work with Ramsay to address the issues he's identified, while others will refuse to take the advice they sought out, and face the consequences. But, in the end, it will be up to the owners and staff to make the changes they want to see.
The success of each business is truly on the line, so one thing is certain: if they won't take Ramsay's advice and make the changes required to meet his impeccable standards, they will never check out of HOTEL HELL.
HOTEL HELL is produced by One Potato Two Potato (part of the All3Media group). GordonRamsay, Ben Adler and Patricia Llewellyn serve as executive producers.

Without any other options, the restaurant owners turnto Gordon Ramsay and his team for one last hope before having to shut their doors forever.

Some will close their doors, others will get back on their feet, but all are calling on Chef Ramsay to wake them up from their KITCHEN NIGHTMARES.

But no matter what Ramsay does, it ultimately is up to the restaurant owners to take his advice and use it - or face closure.

The Mindy Project
THE MINDY PROJECT is a biting single-camera comedy from Emmy Award-nominated writer/producer and New York Times best-selling author Mindy Kaling ("The Office") that follows a skilled OB/GYN (Kaling) trying to balance both her personal and professional life.
MINDY LAHIRI (Kaling) is a talented obstetrician with a hectic personal life, who struggles to find the right guy, the right outfit and the right attitude. Mindy shares a practice with two doctors, neither of whom makes life any easier for her. DANNY CASTELLANO (Chris Messina) is a hothead and a guys' guy who criticizes her for everything, including her struggling love life and her lack of professionalism even though it's obvious to everyone except Mindy that he secretly admires her work. In contrast, JEREMY REED (Ed Weeks) is the walking definition of bad news, and everything comes easy to this suave skinny jean-wearing Brit.
Rounding out the medical staff is male nurse MORGAN TOOKERS (Ike Barinholtz), a reformed ex-con with a heart of gold who, despite his best intentions, always seems to land himself in trouble; the hospital's resident cheerleader, BETSY PUTCH (Zoe Jarman), a young, earnest and easily excitable receptionist; the grumpy and absent-minded nurse, BEVERLY (Beth Grant); and the newest addition to the nurse station, TAMRA (Xosha Roquemore), a girl who would rather dish gossip and dole out beauty tips than do anything resembling work.
Next season, Mindy will continue to search for love, all while juggling a busy social calendar with the demands of her profession. Always the optimist, she hopes to put the previous year's mistakes behind her, ranging from her less-than-stellar relationships with a hip-hop minister and a lying, cheating sports attorney to her many fumbles at work, including various attempts to "give back" to the community. Even if the universe is trying to turn her into a forever-single "cat lady" of sorts, Mindy is determined to get into shape, find a new look and snag a great guy.
THE MINDY PROJECT is produced by 3 Arts Entertainment in association with Universal Television. Theseries is created and written by Mindy Kaling. Kaling, Howard Klein, Matt Warburton, Michael Spiller and Jack Burditt are executive producers.

Taking a modern look at friendship and romance, hit comedy NEW GIRL breezes into its upcoming third season as it follows a group of five friends, their somewhat interconnected romantic exploits and their often hilariously misguided attempts to find their respective places in the world.
As the series concludes its second season and looks ahead to its third, JESS (EmmyAward- and Golden Globe-nominated Zooey Deschanel) and NICK (Jake Johnson) remain caught between friendship and something deeper. After sharing a passionate kiss, then nervously meandering toward a traditional first date, they ultimately gave into to their mutual attraction and took their relationship to the next level. Although SCHMIDT (Emmy Award- and Golden Globe-nominated Max Greenfield) broke off his romance with CECE (Hannah Simone), he tried desperately to win her back, despite her recent engagement and arranged marriage. Meanwhile, WINSTON (Lamorne Morris), seemingly the most grounded of the loftmates, slowly revealed cracks in his calm, cool and collected facade.
In the upcomingthird season, Jess and Nick will pursue a romantic relationship together that will be anything but traditional. Meanwhile, Schmidt will have to decide if he can make a commitment to Cece after the fallout of her wedding day. And Winston will get serious about taking control of his own lovelife.
Premiering in 2011, NEW GIRL was an instant hit, as viewers were introduced to the free-spirited Jess who, after a bad break-up, moved into a downtown Los Angeles loft occupied by three single guys. Among her new roommates, Jess had an immediate connection with Nick, a law school dropout-turned-bartender who knows he's not living upto his potential - yet. Winston, a former pro basketball player (in Europe), who returned to the loft not knowing what to do with his life, has done his best to adjust to working the night shift at a sports-radio station. Rounding out the loft, but living in his own universe, is Schmidt, whose over-confidence and well-defined physique mask severe insecurities, which manifest themselves in a number of OCD-like mannerisms, false bravado and contributions to the loft's douchebag jar. Providing an outsider's perspective on the loft's dynamics is Jess' childhood best friend, Cece, a model with a killer deadpan, whose on-again-off-again relationship with Schmidt surprised everyone, most of all, herself.
This past season, NEW GIRL was nominated for two Golden Globe Awards, including Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series - Comedy or Musical (Deschanel) and Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television (Greenfield). The series was nominated in its freshman year for five Emmy Awards, including Best Actress in a Comedy Series for Deschanel and Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for Greenfield. The series was nominated for a Television Critics Association Award in the category of Outstanding New Program as well as a Critics' Choice Television Award in the category of Best Comedy Series. Deschanel won the Television Critics Association Award for Best Actress, Comedy (tied with Amy Poehler). In its first season, NEW GIRL received a Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Television Series - Comedy or Musical and a Writers Guild Award nomination for Outstanding Achievement in Television - New Series.
NEW GIRL is produced by Chernin Entertainment in association with 20th Century Fox Television. The series was created by Elizabeth Meriwether. Meriwether, Brett Baer, Dave Finkel, Jake Kasdan,Peter Chernin and Katherine Pope are executive producers, with Meriwether, Baerand Finkel serving as co-showrunners/writers and Kasdan directing multiple episodes of the series.

Entering its fourth season, RAISING HOPE is the critically acclaimed comedy created by Emmy Award winner Greg Garcia and executive-produced by Mike Mariano that follows the continuing comic adventures of the Chance family as they raise an adorable toddler named HOPE(guest stars Baylie and Rylie Cregut).
Following JIMMY (Lucas Neff) marriage to longtime crush SABRINA (Shannon Woodward), the young couple moved into their own home this past season. But they found that they still need Jimmy's parents, VIRGINIA (Emmy Award winner Martha Plimpton) and BURT (Garret Dillahunt), to help them raise Jimmy's daughter, Hope. Having been teen parents themselves, Virginia and Burt see Hope as their second chance to get parenthood right, after all the mistakes they made with Jimmy. They continue to live with Virginia's erratic grandmother, MAW MAW (Emmy Award winner Cloris Leachman), whose eccentricities keep everyone on their toes, as she has a tendency to lose her clothing and, in her mind, it just might be World War II. To make ends meet, Jimmy and Sabrina still work together at Howdy's Supermarket, under the supervision of their goofy manager, BARNEY (Gregg Binkley).
In Season Four, Virginia and Burt find new adventures to fill the void of their empty nest, with only Maw Maw left in the house. Jimmy and Sabrina navigate many new "firsts," both as newlyweds and as co-parents. Jimmy takes a stab at having a career as an artist, and Barney reels over the introduction of organic food at Howdy's. Hope's world starts to expand as she enters preschool and makes new friends in the neighborhood. She may be getting older and wiser, but her family remains as lovingly dysfunctional as ever.
RAISING HOPE is produced by Amigos de Garcia Productions in association with 20th Century Fox Television. Mike Mariano serves as executive producer on the series.

The X Factor
The award-winning international phenomenon THE X FACTOR is back. In Season Three of the hit competition series hosted by Mario Lopez, THE X FACTOR judges will travel the nation searching for talent 12 years old or over - both solo artists and vocal groups; who are willing to brave the panel for a chance to make their dreams of becoming a superstar come true. Auditions for THE X FACTOR were held this spring in Los Angeles, CA; Charleston, SC; New Orleans, LA; Long Island, NY; and Denver, CO.
Contestants will audition in front of THE XFACTOR judges, including Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato, and an audience of thousands. This will be the ultimate test to prove they have the vocal ability, charisma and stage presence it takes to become a global superstar or breakout music act and win a recording contract with Syco/Sony Music.
Those contestants who survive the first auditions will be divided into four categories. Each category will be mentore dby one of the show's judges. Not only is it a competition between the hopefuls to stake their claim for the coveted win, but it's also a showdown among the judges as to whose acts will dominate the competition and make it to the finals.
