Following are show descriptions for THE CBS DREAM TEAM, IT'S EPIC! Saturday morning line-up:

LUCKY DOG

Animal trainer Brandon McMillan's second home is the neighborhood animal shelter, where his mission is to rescue hard-to-love and untrained dogs. At McMillan's training facility known as the Lucky Dog Ranch, he embraces the difficult task of turning frightened pooches into perfect pets. McMillan's ultimate triumph is seeing a lucky family adopt an even luckier dog, making each episode an adoption story that warms the heart.

"Willie" - In the premiere episode, Brandon McMillan rescues Willie, a Tibetan Terrier who makes a big splash with his new family.

DR. CHRIS PET VET

Chronicling the adventures of Dr. Chris Brown, DR. CHRIS PET VET allows viewers unique insight into the life of one of the world's busiest vets and the animals to which he devotes his days to caring and treating. For those animals that require specialist services, Dr. Chris calls on his good friend and colleague Dr. Lisa Chimes, who works at a small animal specialist hospital. Each episode delivers not only a carefully crafted mix of human and animal interest stories, but also features a variety of animals that undergo elective procedures as part of long-term treatments involving the most intricate and technologically advanced surgery.

"Lucky Duck" - In the premiere episode, veterinarian Chris Brown is called to help a mother duck who has given birth on the balcony of a high-rise building. Also, he helps an aging Golden Retriever who is struggling to walk, and an unlucky cat named Lucky.

RECIPE REHAB

Each week, host Evette Rios helps American families update a high-calorie family recipe. First, two chefs face off in a head-to-head competition to give the recipes a low-calorie twist. After making each rehabbed recipe in their own kitchen, the family chooses their new favorite. This recipe makeover challenge promotes the use of healthy, wholesome ingredients demonstrating that healthy food choices can have positive effects on our quality of life. Most recently, Rios served as a field correspondent and roving reporter for "The Chew," and was named by Latina Magazine as one of the 60 reasons to "Love Being Latina." Rios was co-host and designer for "Freestyle" and "In A Fix."

"Tamales" - In the premiere episode, Chef Richard and Chef Vikki compete to see who can trim the most calories and fat out of the Ventura family's Mexican Tamali recipe.??

JAMIE OLIVER'S 15 MINUTE MEALS

Best known for his Emmy Award-winning television program, "Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution," Oliver is one of the world's favorite celebrity chefs who aspires to teach the world to cook. Oliver's core belief is that simply cooking for oneself using fresh ingredients is the easiest way to maintain a balanced diet, and to this goal, he has perfected a delicious collection of healthy recipes that can be prepared in no time. The dishes Oliver cooks in his new show, 15 MINUTE MEALS, are fast, fun and most of all flavorful. In his signature and entertaining style, Oliver makes these meals for viewers in real time, offering hints, tricks and lots of nutritional info along the way. JAMIE OLIVER'S 15 MINUTE MEALS will inspire cooks of all ages and levels to try new things and get in the kitchen to create something magical.

"Chili Con Carne Meatballs and Sticky Kicking Chicken" - In the premiere episode, Jamie Oliver cooks chili con carne meatballs, plus sticky kicking chicken and a watermelon radish salad with crunchy noodles.

ALL IN WITH LAILA ALI

Host Laila Ali scours the globe to track down the world's most compelling and inspiring stories about athletes like Pat Farmer, who is attempting what is considered the "greatest run in history," traversing 13,000 miles in 14 countries, and Olympic skier Lindsay Vonn who overcame her worst fear to win a gold medal. Ali, an athlete and champion of health and fitness, is the youngest daughter of Veronica Porsche Anderson and the legendary boxer Muhammad Ali, and is an accomplished host, author and mentor.

"Pole To Pole" - In the premiere episode, host Laila Ali shares the story of ultra marathon runner Pat Farmer, as he sets out to run the treacherous route from the North Pole to the South Pole. In addition, Olympic skier Lindsay Vonn shares her story of how she overcame her worst fear to win a gold medal.

GAME CHANGERS WITH KEVIN FRAZIER

Celebrating athletes and fans who reach out in their communities to make life better for so many, GC, hosted by Kevin Frazier ("omg! INSIDER") takes an inspirational look at professional athletes who use their public image to make positive changes in the lives of fans in need, as well as in the areas they live.

"Kershaw's Challenge" - In the premiere episode, Dodger pitcher and Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw is interviewed about the trip to Africa that changed his life.
