NEW SERIES DESCRIPTIONS

THE GIFTED

THE GIFTED tells the emotional story of a suburban couple whose ordinary lives are rocked by the sudden discovery that their children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, the family seeks help from an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive. Set within the "X-Men" universe, the series stars Stephen Moyer (SHOTS FIRED, "True Blood"), Amy Acker ("Person of Interest"), Natalie Alyn Lind (GOTHAM) and Percy Hynes White ("Night at the Museum 3") as the STRUCKER family. Also featured in the series are Sean Teale ("Reign") as ECLIPSE/MARCOS DIAZ; Jamie Chung (GOTHAM) as BLINK/CLARICE FERGUSON; Emma Dumont ("Aquarius") as POLARIS/LORNA DANE; Blair Redford ("Satisfaction") as THUNDERBIRD/JOHN PROUDSTAR; and Coby Bell ("Burn Notice") as Sentinel Services Agent JACE TURNER. The series is written by Matt Nix ("Burn Notice"), directed by Bryan Singer (the "X-Men" franchise") and executive-produced by Nix, Singer, Lauren Shuler Donner and Simon Kinberg ("X-Men: Apocalypse," "X-Men: Days of Future Past") and Marvel's Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory.

THE ORVILLE

From Emmy Award-winning executive producer and creator Seth MacFarlane (FAMILY GUY, "Ted") and director Jon Favreau ("The Jungle Book," "Iron Man"), THE ORVILLE is a live-action, one-hour series set 400 years in the future that follows the adventures of The Orville, a mid-level exploratory spaceship. Its crew, both human and alien, face the wonders and dangers of outer space, while also dealing with the familiar, often humorous problems of everyday life. The series stars MacFarlane as ED MERCER, the ship's Commanding Officer, and Adrianne Palicki ("Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," "Friday Night Lights") as his ex-wife, KELLY GRAYSON, who's assigned as his First Officer. The series also stars Penny Johnson Jerald as CLAIRE FINN, Scott Grimes as GORDON MALLOY, Peter Macon as BORTUS, Halston Sage as ALARA KITAN, J. Lee as JOHN LAMARR, Mark Jackson as ISAAC, Chad Coleman as KLYDEN and Norm Macdonald as YAPHIT. Seth MacFarlane, Brannon Braga, David A. Goodman, Jason Clark and Liz Heldens are executive producers. Jon Favreau serves as an executive producer and directed the pilot.

GHOSTED

Starring Craig Robinson ("The Office," "This Is the End") and Adam Scott ("Parks and Recreation," "Big Little Lies"), GHOSTED is a single-camera, live-action comedy about the partnership between two polar opposites - a cynical skeptic and a genius "true believer" in the paranormal - who are recruited to investigate unexplained phenomena in Los Angeles, all while uncovering a larger mystery that could threaten the existence of the human race. In addition to Scott's role as MAX JENNIFER and Robinson's as LEROY WRIGHT, the series also stars Ally Walker as Captain AVA LAFREY and Adeel Akhtar as BARRY SHAW. Tom Gormican, Kevin Etten, Craig Robinson, Adam Scott, Naomi Scott, Oly Obst, Mark Schulman and Jonathan Krisel are executive producers, with Krisel directing the pilot.
