"IN HARM'S WAY" - Premiering September 21, 7:00 � 8:00 p.m. Beginning November 2, 6:30 � 7:30 p.m.

"In Harm's Way" is a one-hour reality series that looks at lives of people doing dangerous jobs. Each unscripted episode will follow the brave individuals who risk their lives in a multitude of life-threatening jobs, including war photographers, oil well cappers, Coast Guard divers and minesweepers.

"SURVIVING SUBURBIA" - Premiering November 2, 7:30 � 8:00 p.m.

This half-hour comedy about a family and their new neighbors will star Bob Saget ("How I Met Your Mother," "Full House"). Full casting will be announced in the next several weeks. Kevin Abbott ("Roseanne," "Grace Under Fire," "Reba," "My Name is Earl") serves as Executive Producer for the series along with producers Michael Hanel and Mindy Schultheis.

"Surviving Suburbia" follows Keith (Saget) and Anne Stevers, a seemingly normal couple who has been married for 20 years, have two children and a cookie cutter house in the idyllic suburbs. When the Stevers get new next-door neighbors, the real consternation of suburban existence begin. The neighbors' bombshell 17-year-old daughter is a distraction for Keith; his son Henry becomes smitten with the teenage girl down the street who just got pregnant for the second time--making Keith say aloud that shame needs to be brought back as a national emotion." His daughter Courtney is happily going through her life as an Indian Princess and her innocence is the one thing that Keith will want her to hold on to for as long as possible. Lastly, the new neighbors have filed a lawsuit against the Stevers to force Anne to cut down a bougainvillea vine in her garden. "Surviving Suburbia" proves that it's never just another sunny day in the suburbs.

"VALENTINE" - Premiering September 21, 8:00-9:00 p.m.

"Valentine" stars Jaime Murray ("Dexter"), Kristopher Polaha ("North Shore"), Nikki Snelson ("Legally Blonde: The Musical"), Autumn Reeser ("The O.C."), Patrick Fabian ("Veronica Mars") Greg Ellis ("Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End") and Robert Baker ("Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," "Leatherheads") as a family of Greek Gods, the Valentines, whose purpose is to bring about the rare, strange, and often hilarious thing called love. Kevin Murphy ("Desperate Housewives," "Reaper," "Ed") serves as Executive Producer/Creator for the series along with Executive Producer Courtney Conte.

In the one-hour romantic comedy, the Valentines do whatever it takes to bring soulmates together, all the while keeping their true identities secret. Grace Valentine (Murray), the Goddess Aphrodite, is the sexy and seductive matriarch of the family; her son Danny Valentine (Polaha), the arrow-slinging Eros, has traded up for a magical gun that makes people temporarily fall in love; Danny's best friend Leo (Baker), the muscle man Hercules, is the strong and emotional moral compass of the group; and Phoebe Valentine (Reeser) is the Goddess of the Oracle at Delphi, which helps the family track down and help bring soul-mates together. "Valentine" looks at love, fate and the work it takes to make romance happen.

"EASY MONEY" - Premiering September 21, 9:00-10:00 p.m.

The cast of "Easy Money," a new one-hour drama about a family that runs a high interest loan business, includes Emmy Award-winning actress Laurie Metcalf ("Desperate Housewives," "Roseanne"), Jeff Hephner ("The O.C."), Judge Reinhold ("Swing Vote," "The Santa Clause Trilogy"), Nick Searcy ("Rodney"), Jay Ferguson ("Sleeper Cell"), Gary Farmer ("Moose TV") and Katie Lowes ("The Ghost Whisperer"). Diane Frolov and Andy Schneider ("Northern Exposure," "The Chris Isaak Show," "The Sopranos") serve as Executive Producers for the series, along with producer Brandon Hill.

In "Easy Money," 28-year-old Morgan Buffkin (Hephner) finds himself in charge of Prestige Payday Loans, his eccentric family's enormously successful short-term loan business. Any doubts Morgan has about running his family's business are quickly replaced by dealing with family business: Morgan's brother Cooper (Ferguson) insists on driving a silver-plated Hummer, his sister Brandy (Lowes) has questionable morals, he suspects that his mother (Metcalfe) and father (Searcy) are not being completely honest with him about his relation to the family, and every so often, part-time detective Barry (Reinhold) drops in. "Easy Money" follows the Buffkin Family in a modern-day Dickensian tale of money and identity.
