Broken

SHOW INFO
Gemma Evon is one of Dallas's toughest divorce attorneys. She is the kind of divorce attorney clients seek out not to get an amicable divorce but to completely decimate their ex. Gemma's intelligence and toughness with her cases have gotten her a mansion in Dallas's most prestigious neighborhood and a corner office at the firm, but not partnership - yet. But Gemma's past is far different from the ritzy Dallas social life she leads today. Raised in the trailer parks of Texas, she and her sister Jules had a tough time growing up with a single mom who was always on the run and couldn't always protect them or provide for them. It is this tumultuous past that sent the sisters in two different directions - Jules grew up to find herself bouncing from relationship to relationship, never being able to hold down a job, and always getting herself too wrapped up in the wrong guy. Gemma, on the other hand, reinvented herself by taming her accent and never allowing people to see the scars of her past. But it is these childhood traumas that still haunt her at night and that have fueled her steely drive for success. We meet Gemma when she is on the brink of getting everything she's strived for - she is on the verge of reeling in one of the most public and expensive divorce cases in the state where billions of dollars are at stake, as well as her coveted partnership. And at home she's reeled in Oliver, the handsome, rich fiancé she always wanted. But unfortunately for Gemma, Jules arrives on the scene following another destructive relationship that causes her to lean on her sister for a place to stay. It is this arrival that drives Gemma's own self-destructive qualities into high gear when she acts out by sleeping with her boss, James, who knows more about Gemma's past than Oliver does. And when a co-worker, Mark, starts trying to ingratiate himself on Gemma's biggest divorce case, Gemma knows now more than ever is not the time to allow Jules's emotional drama to derail her own drive.

Conviction

SHOW INFO
Hayes Morrison (Hayley Atwell) grew up in the public eye as the nation's First Daughter. Now she is a gorgeous mess, with a brilliant legal mind but a self-destructive streak. Arrested for cocaine possession, she gets an offer from Wayne Wallis, the NY District Attorney: no jail time if she heads his new Conviction Integrity Unit that reexamines cases where there's credible suspicion of wrongful conviction. Hayes resents having to take the offer, but is not totally upset about working with Wayne. He was her former courtroom nemesis, who she still finds rather sexy. She is working with the CIU team including forensics expert Frankie Rios, Paralegal Tess Thompson, and NYPD Detective Maxine Barton, who makes a point of telling Hayes that she didn't vote for her father, the former President. They have tight deadlines to identify cases where they suspect the wrong person has been convicted of a crime. The first case should be easy to overturn, but it's not. Neither is Wayne who has Assistant DA Sam Sullivan spy on Hayes, and calls her bluff when she tries to get herself fired. Wayne's tough love is a turn-on. But, it all gets worse when she finds out that her mother, the former First Lady who is running for Senate, was the one behind job offer. If Hayes quits, she is going to jail. She better work, despite her demons, because this is really her last second chance. She needs this job as much as the wrongfully convicted need her brilliance. It's time to follow her mother's advice: "Do your best. For once."

Designated Survivor

SHOW INFO
It is the night of the President's State of the Union address. Tom Kirkman (Kiefer Sutherland), the secretary of HUD, is the only cabinet member watching from another location. He has been chosen to be the Designated Survivor for the night, which ensures continuity of government in the unlikely event that a catastrophic attack on the capital kills everyone above him in the presidential line of succession. As he watches with his wife Alex (Natascha McElhone), a savvy pro bono attorney, the television signal suddenly cuts out and the Secret Service rush in. The Capitol Building has been blown up, the President and Cabinet members are dead, and Kirkman is about to become the President of the United States. He and Alex are taken to the White House immediately while Secret Service rush to get his 9 year-old daughter and search for his 16 year-old son, who is not where he said he would be. There is no time to process how their lives are about to change. FBI Agent Hannah Wells (Maggie Q) is alerted immediately and runs out on a disastrous blind date. When she gets to the Capitol and starts the investigation, she makes the startling revelation that this attack might only be the beginning. Tom, now President Kirkman, meets with everyone left at top-level security clearance. Deputy Chief of Staff Aaron Shore helps Kirkman gain command over the panicked and chaotic room. Tensions rise when they receive word that Iran has deployed its Navy into the Strait of Hormuz. Hawkish General Cochrane, convinced that Iran is taking advantage of the attack to cut off America's source of oil, wants to bomb Iran immediately without substantiated evidence. President Kirkman refuses to head into military action without assessing the situation and meets with the Ambassador of Iran. While many doubt he has the strength and experience to take on these kinds of challenges, he proves himself surprisingly worthy. Speechwriter Seth Wright (Kal Penn), who Kirkman caught earlier trashing him for being a follower instead of a leader, will now have 45 minutes to write a formidable speech to launch his new presidency. With the Cabinet in shambles, the military pressing for action, the terrorists still at large, and the entire country searching for answers, Kirkman will struggle to prevent America, and his own family, from falling into chaos as he is thrust into one of the most difficult presidencies in history.

Model Woman

SHOW INFO
Beauty and glamour. Fame and fortune. Betrayal and intrigue. It's 1977 and the formidable Bertie Geiss (Andie MacDowell), with her colorful husband Miller by her side, lords over the Geiss Modeling Agency, a monopolistic powerhouse that sets standards of beauty worldwide. Bertie has an eye for spotting talent and cultivates her finds by mentoring the "girls" in a sorority-type home with strict rules and regimens. Her son Elson is gorgeous and has his mother's eye for the next face, while son Lonnie longs to escape the business side and find the next star. Rebellious daughter Michelle, although model material, wants no part of fashion and chooses to photograph reality, not fantasy. But Bertie's true children are her models, especially her top-tier star clients. So when supermodel Rebecca Blackwell returns from Paris demanding what amounts to free services from the Geiss agency, Bertie hatches a plot to keep her under her wing. The next fire to put out comes in the form of betrayal. Bertie's Paris partner Lio Fibonacci, a sexy, dangerous snake is secretly pilfering models to join his new agency in New York while introducing the models to the disco nightlife of glamour, sex and drugs which Bertie forbids. As everyone knows, your enemy's enemy can be your friend, so Bertie offers an olive branch to her former client and now competitor Helenjane Harris to join forces against Lio. Lonnie may have a chance to shed his "numbers guy" persona and get in the talent-scouting game when he plucks a Pippi Longstocking-type girl from the waiting room named Gemma Pinschenat. Bertie sizes her up in seconds and is about to dismiss her when she's surprised by Gemma removing the mortician's wax camouflaging an intriguing gap between her front teeth. Bertie immediately sees what Lonnie saw - a potential star and Lonnie's "first face". As Bertie fights to stay on top, her family is floundering. Husband Miller is the target of Rebecca's passes, son Elson -- normally a player - is falling for Gemma, and Lio is making the moves on daughter, Michelle, whom he knows is forbidden fruit. As she nears hitting the big 50th birthday, will Bertie be able to hold on to power in the anything-goes/if-it-feels-good-do-it world of the 1970s?

Notorious

SHOW INFO
Notorious is about control, ego, and power -- how a charismatic attorney and a powerhouse TV producer attempt to control the media, the justice system, and ultimately each other. Living at the intersection of law and media, the series explores the boundaries of professional integrity and how far our national tastemakers will go for ratings, notoriety, and the last word. Julia George is the Executive Producer of Louise Herrick Live, the nation's number one news program hosted by Louise Herrick, a consummate professional when she's on air and a party girl in her off hours. As the nation's top news producer, Julia decides what our country cares about. She creates heroes and monsters, victims and villains. With the help of her associate producer, Megan Byrd, Julia tells the world when to pay attention and what really matters. Recently, against her wishes, Julia's been assigned a new PA, Ryan Mills, the son of the network president. Ryan is as ambitious as his father and in a hurry to step out of his shadow. He'll do anything to prove his worth to Julia. Jake Gregorian is the nation's top defense attorney. Handsome and charismatic, he boasts a roaster of celebrity clients and will win at any cost. He often overshadows his brother, Bradley, an equal partner at Gregorian & Gregorian, the firm created by their father. Jake and Bradley recently hired a new associate Ella Benjamin, a protégé of Jake. Ella appears naive but that's a facade. Her father was arrested for a series of post office bombings, and she became a lawyer to help get her father out of prison and off death row. The heart of the series is the relationship between Julia and Jake. As respective leaders in their fields, they are in a unique position to trade information and "access to the airwaves" for better stories and the upper hand. While they are often at odds in public, behind the scenes they are in cahoots, using each other to advance their own agendas. Jake and Julia rule their professional domains, but their personal lives are complicated. Jake is in love with a client's wife and Julia just discovered that her boyfriend, a recently appointed Federal Judge, has been cheating on her with high priced escorts. Inspired by the true-life stories of famed criminal defense attorney Mark Geragos and cable news producer Wendy Walker, Notorious is a provocative look at the unique, sexy, and dangerous interplay of criminal law and the media.

Presence

SHOW INFO
Presence Fernandez (Stephanie Sigman) is not your average Army Corporal. She didn't join the service to fight terrorism, even though she did do a tour of duty in Afghanistan as a Counter-Insurgency Operator. She and her friend joined to avoid going to prison for theft. This got her out of the LA gang scene and probably saved her life, but not her friend's who died in combat. Now a civilian, she needs money, a car, and a job. She gets an interesting call from the very wealthy Duchess Avedon, her ex-fiancé's mother who never approved of her. Duchess is looking for her son, Chad, and knows if anyone can find him, it is Presence. She will need to hold her own against LA's baddest as well as LA's finest - the police. Biker dudes try to beat her up for snooping around, but she gets out alive - with the information she needs from them. With that lead and knowing Chad's style, she tracks him to his upscale apartment in Hollywood. But her former fiancé gets to her like no one else. After they spend the night together, she agrees to tell his mother that she cannot find him, while accepting a fee that is double his mother's. But she's made a critical error by leaving him in his apartment-- his body is discovered in the Pacific Ocean. Devastated by his death, she finds herself a person of interest by the police. To make sure she doesn't go back to prison, she will track down his killer. In doing so, she forms a connection with one of the police, Mike McKay. Out of tragedy, she starts to see what could be a new life for herself as an unlicensed private detective.

Spark

SHOW INFO
It is current day America, but not as we know it. Imagine electricity had never been discovered - in its place, gas and coal run the world and power our everyday devices. Now imagine the amount of power the people who own the gas and coal in this world would command. This is the world of Spark. In this contemporary American city the Stockton family, run by the tough as nails Hazel, controls the coal. Hazel finds herself constantly coming to heads with the patriarch of the Lavelle family, the ruthless Philippe. There is money to be had in who controls every part of this city, and the Stocktons and Lavelles will stop at nothing to come out on top. This old rivalry is thrown into high gear when a new land grab comes to fruition, and the families resort to underground tactics to take each other down. Suddenly, a gas line is cut causing an explosion that hurts the Lavelle family while a Stockton coal train is derailed killing innocents in its wake. At the center of this war between families is a spirited Tinker named Pin. As a Tinker, she has a lowly existence in this town, but she is skilled in fixing and recycling gadgets and devices, a trait inherited from her loving father Thatcher and shared with her mischievous brother Cable. But Pin is smart and talented and, while using her STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) skills to work on an illicit device she created, she stumbles on the discovery of electric spark. She knows that this spark could mean everything to the people who are constantly affected by the war between Stockton and Lavelle. Though Pin's device is confiscated by an Enforcer on The Watch, she is approached by the least likely person to want to help her rebuild it - Philippe's son, Alex Lavelle. Turns out, the devious and sexy Alex has plans of his own for what Pin's device could mean for this world and his family, and Alex knows he needs a talented Tinker like Pin to bring his plans to fruition. This puts Pin in direct conflict with her boyfriend Aidan, who is head of The Watch and also a Stockton, and who would never approve of his girlfriend partnering with a Lavelle. It would be easy for Pin to turn down Alex's alliance, except that the guerilla warfare tactics between the families have escalated and created a very personal loss for Pin herself. Knowing that developing the device and seeing where the spark could lead is the only way to bring down both families and stop the carnage, Pin starts out on a dangerous journey of creativity and invention that could destroy everything she holds dear.

Still Star-Crossed

SHOW INFO
Still Star-Crossed, a period drama from Shondaland, picks up where this famous story ends. The deaths of Romeo and Juliet have escalated the feud between the Montagues and the Capulets. The streets of Verona have become dangerous, traitors have emerged, and the kingdom is vulnerable to attack. The young ruling Prince of Verona, Escalus, wants to end the feud and bring peace to the kingdom. Following the sage advice of his sister Princess Isabella he devises a plan to marry a Capulet to a Montague to unite the families and strengthen his position. He commands a union between Romeo's cousin, the womanizing Benvolio, with Juliet's cousin, Rosaline, who is in love with Prince Escalus. Each is fiery and independent. In the pandemonium on the streets after Romeo and Juliet's deaths, Benvolio saves Rosaline from assault. Instead of being grateful, she's insulting. Their courtship has a long way to go and they'll have to banter their way to a compromise in the midst of treachery, power grabs and palace intrigue. Another star-crossed love story begins.

The Death of Eva Sofia Valdez

SHOW INFO
Born and raised in Havana, Eva Sofia Valdez (Gina Torres) immigrated to Miami and won herself the American dream through decades of hard work. With a small conglomerate of local businesses and a tight-knit, loving family she seemingly has it all. But a chance encounter with the former love of her life (and three mysterious shadow women) is about to change all of that... At a fundraising party for her charity, Eva Sofia is confronted by Miami Mayoral candidate, Blair Monrose (a member of Miami's most powerful family). Although Eva Sofia immediately recognizes Blair as the man who seduced her and abandoned her in Havana twenty-seven years ago, Blair seems oblivious. Outraged and wounded by Blair's callous dismissal, Eva Sofia begins an epic quest for revenge. In an attempt to bring Blair and the Monrose family to its knees, Eva Sofia decides that her youngest son, Nicolas (a charming young attorney with a love of ladies and the occasional bump of cocaine) should run against Blair in the mayoral election. This causes her eldest son, Sebastian (the quiet, stable manager of the family's finances) to question Eva's ability to run the family empire and inflames the brother's sibling rivalry. When Eva's plans to secretly buy her way on to the board of Morose Rum are frustrated, she enlists the help of three supernatural shadow women, with deadly consequences...

The Jury

SHOW INFO
What happens when a person's fate is placed in the hands of twelve strangers? Like 12 Angry Men meets the podcast Serial, The Jury follows a single murder trial over one season as seen through the eyes of the jurors. This season's case involves high school honor student Michael Cleary, on trial for the murder of 17-year old Victoria Cape. There is seemingly damning evidence of him on videotape, but of course, there is more to this case than meets the video camera's eye. The twelve jurors come from different economic backgrounds, races, and religions and see the world and the trial differently. As the evidence unfolds, the jurors' biases and past experiences influence how they perceive the evidence and ultimately determine the guilt or innocence of the accused. 70 year-old Judge Elmer Talbot explains the instructions with his heavy Texas accent to the twelve jurors: geeky IT guy Ernest Frost, bored as hell Melody Watson, hijab wearing Sobia Khan, working mom Angela Clayton, shrewd businessman Dan Guest, hipster artist Jared Wheaton, Hispanic marine Oscar Barrientos, the friendly Reverend Jim Pyken, perfect housewife Haley Winfield, blue-collar hardass Troy Woodruff, social crusader Monica Rai, and the quintessential maternal figure, Maggie Singer. Friendships, alliances, and feuds between the jurors will play a part in the deliberations throughout the complex trial in this series.

Time After Time

SHOW INFO
It is London, 1893. H.G. Wells is destined to become a famed science fiction author, but on this evening he's just a little known writer struggling to get published. He has invited his intellectual friends to show off his new invention - a time machine - but never suspects his late arriving guest, surgeon and friend John Stevenson, is the infamous Jack the Ripper. When the police arrive looking for Jack the Ripper, John sneaks into the time machine and flees to modern day Manhattan with Wells in hot pursuit. Wells arrives inside a museum exhibit featuring himself, The Man Ahead of His Time. Unrecognized by security, he's hauled off to the museum curator, Jane Walker, who is attracted to this odd fellow and intrigued that the machine is warm and security videos show two different men seemingly appearing out of thin air. Wells, meanwhile, is a complete fish out of water, always rising politely whenever Jane stands up, puzzled at everyone staring at the screens of their small devices and awestruck by the bustle and bling of Times Square. Wells must stop Jack the Ripper who needs Wells' key to the time machine so he can murder throughout the centuries with impunity. Wells manages to hold on to the key, but the Ripper slips through his fingers when Wells is knocked down by a yellow cab. As luck has it, Jane's business card is in his pocket and she is called to pick him up from the hospital. She takes H.G. to her apartment where he tells this modern independent woman that she fascinates him. Jane is more wary, but sparks really fly after she rescues him from an electric razor he's using to shave off his 19th century facial hair. The deal is sealed when he puts on her ex's jeans and t-shirt, and transforms into a 21st century hunk. It is the cat and mouse game between Wells and Jack the Ripper that fuels the action, as Wells tries to track down John while John tries to lure Wells in order to get the key. It's only when Jack the Ripper strikes again that Wells blurts out his true identity to Jane, and proves it by taking her on a trip in the machine three days into the future where, horrified, they learn Jane will be a victim of The Ripper unless they stop him.
