From creator/executive producer Hart Hanson (Bones), Backstrom is a subversive and comic crime procedural about an unhealthy, offensive, irascible – albeit brilliant – detective who is brought back from exile to run the Portland Police Bureau’s Special Crimes Unit (S.C.U.). Detective Lieutenant Everett Backstrom (Rainn Wilson from The Office) is a man with no filter. After a five-year banishment to the traffic division for offensive behavior, he has returned from disgrace to lead Portland’s newly minted S.C.U. Tasked with navigating the city’s most sensitive and serious cases, he must solve each crime as he tries, and fails, to change his own self-destructive behavior.

From Academy Award nominee Lee Daniels (The Butler and Precious) and Emmy Award winner Danny Strong (Game Change), comes Empire, a sexy and powerful new drama about the head of a music empire whose three sons and ex-wife all battle for his throne. Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard from Crash and Hustle & Flow) is the king of hip-hop. An immensely talented artist, the CEO of Empire Entertainment and a former street thug, his reign has been unchallenged for years. But all that changes, when he learns he has a disease that is going to render him crippled and incapacitated in a matter of three years. The clock is ticking, and he must groom one of his three sons to take over his crowning achievement, without destroying his already fractured family.

The world of ancient Egypt – a time of magic, Pharaohs, gods and thieves – lives again in Hieroglyph, an exciting action-adventure series from creator/executive producer Travis Beacham (Pacific Rim and Clash of the Titans). When a dangerous scroll, The Book of Thresholds, is stolen from Egypt’s most secure vault, master thief Ambrose (Max Brown from Beauty and the Beast) is plucked from prison to track down the perpetrator. Having spent the past five years in the darkest of pits, Ambrose quickly learns that his prison cell might be safer than the dangerous new world in which he finds himself: Atum, the empire’s capital.
