***SERIES DESCRIPTIONS***

FX's The New York Times Presents: "Lie To Fly"

Terror took hold of an Alaska Airlines flight last year after a man was accused of trying to crash the plane mid-flight and kill 83 people onboard. However, the accused was not just any passenger - he was a professional pilot, Joseph Emerson, who was under the influence of psychedelic mushrooms after fearing mental health treatment would derail his career.

The New York Times explores Joseph Emerson's story and follows a growing movement calling for reform of the FAA's strict rules around pilot mental health, which they claim leaves the public at risk.

FX's English Teacher

FX's English Teacher is a comedy series created by Brian Jordan Alvarez, in which he stars as "Evan Marquez," a high school teacher in Austin, Texas who often finds himself at the intersection of the personal, professional and political aspects of working at a high school.

Evan wants to be a principled person but often runs into trouble because of it. By Evan's side at Morrison-Hensley High is his friend group of other teachers. Chief among them is his best friend "Gwen Sanders" (Stephanie Koenig), the eager and optimistic history teacher who tends to see the best in people, even when she probably shouldn't. Then there's PE teacher "Markie Hillridge" (Sean Patton). Though he can seem gruff and abrasive, beneath the surface, he possesses a knowledge of human nature that often proves valuable to Evan. When they aren't disagreeing, Markie and Evan share a genuine bond... but they're usually disagreeing.

"Principal Grant Moretti" (Enrico Colantoni) wants nothing more than peace and the path of least resistance - a path Evan is rarely willing to take. While Grant keeps his own opinions close to the vest, he respects Evan's passion, even if it makes his own job more difficult. Guidance Counselor "Rick" (Carmen Christopher) barely wants to be at this school - he sees himself as an entrepreneur - but still loves hanging out with the other teachers. Evan's ex-boyfriend "Malcolm" (Jordan Firstman) is a former teacher at Morrison. Wild and free-thinking, Malcolm often draws Evan back into a pseudo-relationship.

When Grant informs Evan that he is being placed under investigation for a long-dormant incident where he and Malcolm kissed in front of students, Evan suddenly feels that he's under a microscope and is being targeted for his sexuality. Evan is left with one rule to abide by: no relationships with faculty... only to meet "Harry" (Langston Kerman), a charming new teacher who seems to be interested in him.

Over the eight-episode season, we follow Evan as he navigates his relationships, his students and his fellow faculty and tries to answer the question: can you really be your full self at your job?

Created by Brian Jordan Alvarez, FX's English Teacher is executive produced by Alvarez, Paul Simms, Jonathan Krisel and Dave King. Kathryn Dean, Jake Bender and Zach Dunn serve as co-executive producers. English Teacher is produced by FX Productions.

FX's The Old Man

In Season 2 of FX's The Old Man, former CIA agent "Dan Chase" (Jeff Bridges) and former FBI Assistant Director "Harold Harper" (John Lithgow) set off on their most important mission to date --- to recover "Emily Chase" (Alia Shawkat) after she is kidnapped by "Faraz Hamzad" (Navid Negahban), a powerful Afghan tribal leader. With all three men claiming her as their daughter, Emily finds herself in an identity crisis that has dire implications.

As Chase and Harper fight their way to get to Emily, Hamzad is forced to make decisions that could endanger his family and the village he has led faithfully for a lifetime. "Khadija" (Jacqueline Antaramian), Hamzad's sister and trusted advisor, is concerned about the path her brother has taken and what it will cost them. As the stakes get higher and more secrets are uncovered, "Zoe McDonald" (Amy Brenneman) makes surprising moves after having been drawn into a new world by Chase. Meanwhile, "Julian Carson" (Gbenga Akinnagbe) is disillusioned by his former role and finds himself at a crossroads with a path he hadn't imagined for himself.

FX's The Old Man is based on the bestselling novel of the same name by Thomas Perry. Teleplay and created for television by Jonathan E. Steinberg & Robert Levine, The Old Man is executive produced by Steinberg, Dan Shotz, Warren Littlefield, Levine, Bridges, David Schiff, Craig Silverstein and Jon Watts. The series is produced by 20th Television in association with The Littlefield Company.
