    Angel From Hell

    Angel from Hell - Thursdays at 9:30PM ET/PT on CBS (Starting in November) (Single-Camera)

    Angel From Hell stars Golden Globe and multiple Emmy Award winner Jane Lynch in a single-camera comedy about Amy (Lynch), a colorful, brassy woman who insinuates herself into Allison’s (Maggie Lawson) organized and seemingly perfect life, claiming to be her “guardian angel.” Allison is an intense, driven doctor who is sure that Amy is just an inebriated, outspoken nut, until every one of her warnings proves true. Cautioned by Amy not tell anyone about her, Allison can’t discuss this over-the-top oddball with her father and business partner, Marv (Kevin Pollak), a sunburned dermatologist who shares an office with Allison, or her younger brother, Brad (Kyle Bornheimer), a pharmaceutical sales rep who lives over her garage. As Allison tries to push Amy away, Amy makes her final pitch: her sole mission is to provide Allison with helpful guidance that nudges her in the right direction in life – and it’s her final chance to prove herself as an angel. With that, Allison agrees to this unlikely relationship because maybe a weird friend is exactly what she needs… and what if Amy really is her “guardian angel”?

    Tad Quill and Emmy Award winner Don Scardino (30 Rock) are executive producers for CBS Television Studios. The pilot was directed by Don Scardino.

    Grandfathered - Tuesdays at 8:00PM ET/PT on Fox (Single-Camera)

    What’s the fastest way to put the brakes on a cruise-controlled bachelor lifestyle? Fatherhood? Guess again. Television icon John Stamos (Full House, ER) stars in a new comedy about the ultimate bachelor who discovers he’s not only a father, but a grandfather. Successful restaurateur and man-about-town Jimmy Martino (Stamos) is used to being the most suave, most handsome and most single person in the room. All that changes with the surprise appearance of Jimmy’s adult son, Gerald (Josh Peck, The Mindy Project), and his baby daughter, Edie. Now Jimmy has to unlearn a lifetime of blissful selfishness and grapple with the fact that he went straight from single to grandfather in six seconds flat. Keeping tabs on Jimmy is Gerald’s mother and Jimmy’s former girlfriend, rocker chick-turned-mother Sara (Paget Brewster, Criminal Minds, Community). Equally concerned about how Jimmy will manage these new developments is Jimmy’s restaurant family, especially assistant manager Annelise (Kelly Jenrette, Audrey) and chef Ken (Ravi Patel, Super Fun Night). Can Jimmy teach Gerald to be a little more like him in order to win the affection of Edie’s hot mess of a mom, Vanessa (Christina Milian, Family Guy, Baggage Claim)? Will Jimmy and Sara fall for each other all over again, even though she’s the one thing he never dates – a woman his own age? And who’s higher maintenance, Jimmy or the baby?

  • The Grinder

    The Grinder - Tuesdays at 8:30PM ET/PT on Fox (Single-Camera)

    How many TV lawyers does it take to try a real-life case in a real-life courtroom? One, and his name is The Grinder. Starring Emmy Award nominee Rob Lowe (Parks and Recreation, The West Wing), The Grinder is a new comedy about a famous TV lawyer at a crossroads. When his legal series ends, he decides to move back home and join his family’s real law firm – despite having no formal education, no bar certification, no license to practice and no experience in an actual courtroom. Dean Sanderson (Lowe) spent eight seasons playing the title role on the hit legal drama The Grinder. Now he’s moving back to his hometown of Boise, Idaho, where his brother, Stewart (Emmy Award and Golden Globe Award nominee Fred Savage, The Wonder Years), is a real-life attorney who is poised to take over the family law firm. It doesn’t take long for Dean to start injecting his TV drama into every aspect of Stewart’s life, both in the courtroom and at home, impacting Stewart’s wife – and Dean’s high school sweetheart – Debbie (Mary Elizabeth Ellis, New Girl, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia); their two kids, 15-year-old Lizzie (Hana Hayes, Bucket and Skinner’s Epic Adventures) and 13-year-old Ethan (Connor Kalopsis, Days Of Our Lives); and Dean and Stewart’s father, the law firm’s head, Dean Sr. (William Devane, 24: Live Another Day). Dean and Stewart don’t see to eye to eye, but when they stop arguing with each other and start arguing together in court…they make a formidable team. The Grinder is the story of two brothers, who took different paths, but meet again in the middle – for justice…sort of.

    Rob Lowe as Dean
    Fred Savage as Stewart
    Mary Elizabeth Ellis as Debbie

  • Scream Queens

    Scream Queens - Tuesdays at 9:00PM ET/PT on Fox (Single-Camera - One-Hour)

    The girls of Kappa House are dying for new pledges. Scream Queens is a new killer comedy-horror series from Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan, the Emmy- and Golden Globe Award-winning executive producers of Glee and American Horror Story. Wallace University is rocked by a string of murders. Kappa House, the most sought-after sorority for pledges, is ruled with an iron fist (in a pink glove) by its Queen Bitch, Chanel Oberlin (Emma Roberts, American Horror Story: Freak Show, Scream 4). But when anti-Kappa Dean Munsch (Jamie Lee Curtis, Halloween, A Fish Called Wanda, True Lies) decrees that sorority pledging must be open to all students, and not just the school’s silver-spooned elite, all hell is about to break loose, as a devil-clad killer begins wreaking havoc, claiming one victim, one episode at a time. Part black comedy, part slasher flick, Scream Queens is a modern take on the classic whodunit, in which every character has a motive for murder…or could easily be the next blood-soaked casualty.

    Emma Roberts as Chanel Oberlin
    Jamie Lee Curtis as Dean Munsch
    Lea Michele as Hester
    Abigail Breslin as Chanel #5

    The Guide to Suriving Life

    The Guide to Surviving Life - Mid-Season on Fox (Single-Camera)

    Wouldn’t it be great to have a friend who has made all the mistakes in life there are to make, and then tells you exactly where he went wrong, so you don’t have to? The Guide to Surviving Life is a new comedy that explores what we all go through on our way to figuring out what life is all about. Cooper Barrett (Jack Cutmore-Scott, Kingsman: The Secret Service) still doesn’t have the job he wants; he’s accidently fallen in love with his across-the-hall neighbor, Kelly Bishop (Meaghan Rath, Being Human); one of his roommates, Neal (Charlie Saxton, Betas, Hung), just can’t seem to dump his bodybuilder girlfriend; his other roommate, Barry (James Earl, Ground Floor, GLEE), is a “loveable jackass” who can’t stop getting into trouble; and his 40-year-old-brother, Josh (Justin Bartha, The New Normal, The Hangover franchise), a married father of two, is constantly popping in to come hang with the fellas. The one thing they do have is each other. As Cooper struggles to survive each of life’s many challenges – a night in jail, an inappropriate text he never should have sent, an ill-advised household pet – he will guide us through the often-messy, always-hilarious ordeal, so that our lives don’t have to be nearly the entertaining disaster that Cooper’s is turning out to be.

  • Bordertown

    Bordertown - Mid-Season on Fox (Animated)

    From Family Guy’s Mark Hentemann comes Bordertown, a new animated comedy about two families living in a Southwest desert town on the U.S. - Mexico border. The series takes a satirical look at the cultural shifts occurring in America, where the U.S. Census forecasts that by 2017, ethnic minorities will become the majority. Set against this increasingly diverse backdrop, the comedy explores family, politics and everything in between with a cross-cultural wink. Bordertown centers on two clans: the Buckwalds and the Gonzalezes. Bud Buckwald (Hank Azaria, The Simpsons) is a married father of three and a Border Patrol agent who is just a tad behind the times and feels slightly threatened by the cultural changes transforming his neighborhood. He lives next door to Ernesto Gonzalez (Nicholas Gonzalez, Sleepy Hollow), an ambitious family man, who has been in the country less than 10 years, but is already doing better than Bud – which, it turns out, is a bit of an issue for Bud. Bud is married to Janice Buckwald (Alex Borstein, Family Guy), both the wisest and most oblivious member of the family. The Buckwald kids include Becky (Borstein), a socially awkward, big-boned geek; Sanford (Judah Friedlander, 30 Rock), a loser who thinks he’s a player; and Gert (Missi Pyle, The Exes, Galaxy Quest), a beauty pageant-obsessed five-year-old with a pet pig. Meanwhile, living the American Dream next door are the Gonzalezes, including Maria (Stephanie Escajeda, 100 Things To Do Before High School), Ernesto’s no-nonsense wife; their son, Ruiz (guest voice Efren Ramirez, Napoleon Dynamite); and their 21-year-old nephew, J.C. (Gonzalez), a graduate student who is engaged to Becky and frequently butts heads with Bud. As Bud and Ernesto’s paths begin to cross, their two families soon become bound by romance, conflict and, perhaps most importantly, friendship – a word that means the same, no matter what side of the border you’re from.

    Cast:

    Hank Azaria as Bud Buckwald
    Nicholas Gonzalez as Ernesto Gonzalez / J.C. Gonzalez
    Alex Borstein as Janice and Becky Buckwald
    Missi Pyle as Gert Buckwald
    Judah Friedlander as Sanford Buckwald

    A nun from Italy. A death row inmate from Arizona. A little girl with a thing for giraffes. A bank manager from England. What do all these people have in common?
