ICEBOX debuts tonight, FRIDAY, DEC. 7 (8:00-9:25 p.m. ET/PT). Written and directed by Daniel Sawka, the drama tells the story of Óscar, played by Anthony Gonzalez ("Coco"), a 12-year-old Honduran boy who is forced to flee his home and seek asylum in the United States, only to find himself trapped in the U.S. immigration system.
