The A-Team Heads to COZI TV; Obama and Seinfeld Team Up on Crackle

The A-Team

COZI TV announced the addition of The A-Team, the popular 1980s action-adventure series starring Mr. T and George Peppard, to its lineup of iconic programming starting New Year's Day. The A-Team kicks off on COZI TV with a day-long marathon on January 1 beginning at 6AM; the series will then air every night – both during the week and on weekends – at 10PM, with the exception of Friday nights. The hit show, which aired on NBC from 1983 to 1987, featured a former commando unit turned mercenaries. The team was framed for robbing the Bank of Hanoi and sent to a U.S. military prison, which they escaped from and led a life on the run. While underground, they became heroes for hire around the world, working as good-guy vigilantes. Each member of The A-Team served a key role: Hannibal, played by Peppard, was the team's leader and a connoisseur of disguises; his teammate, Face, played by Dirk Benedict, was known for being quite the ladies' man and a con-artist; Mr. T's B.A. or Bad Attitude was their strong man and mechanic who assisted during moments of chaos; and Howling Mad Murdock played by Dwight Schultz was an expert pilot and a certified lunatic, who was the team broke out of a mental hospital when they needed him for a mission.

Here is a promo inviting viewers to tune into The A-Team: http://www.cozitv.com/video/The-A-Team-Arrive-this-January/cozitv/353023161.

Eve dresses up like Mandy and Mandy dresses down like Eve, Kristin and Ryan swap roles, and Mike shows up to the party as… Donald Trump!?
