Dean 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, 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. All of this starts to impact Stewart’s wife – and Dean’s high school sweetheart – Debbie; their two kids, 15-year-old Lizzie and 13-year-old Ethan; and Dean and Stewart’s father, Dean Sr. The Grinder is the story of two brothers who took different paths, but meet again in the middle – for justice…sort of.

Scream Queens is a new killer comedy-horror series about a string of murders in a sorority house at Wallace University. Kappa House, the most sought-after sorority for pledges, is ruled with an iron fist (in a pink glove) by its Queen B, Chanel Oberlin. But when anti-Kappa Dean Munsch decrees that sorority pledging must be open to all students, and not just the school’s silver-spooned elite, all hell breaks loose, as a devil-clad killer begins wreaking havoc, claiming one victim, one episode at a time. Part dark 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.

Bob’s Burgers is an animated series about a man, his family, and a burger joint. A third-generation restaurateur, Bob Belcher has big ideas about burgers, condiments and sides, but only a few thoughts on customer service and business management. Despite his greasy counters, lousy location and occasionally spotty service, Bob is convinced his burgers speak for themselves. Even though business is slow, Bob gets to work with his family. His wife, Linda, supports Bob's dream through thick and thin. Their eldest daughter, Tina, is a 13-year-old hopeless romantic with minimal social skills. Middle child Gene is an aspiring musician and a prankster who serves up more jokes than burgers. Their youngest, Louise, is the most enthusiastic about her dad's business, but an off-balance sense of humour and her elevated energy level make her somewhat of a liability in the kitchen.

Now, in his RV, Phil searches the country for other survivors. He has travelled to every city, every town and every outpost in the United States, Mexico and Canada, and has found no one, which leads him to the painful realization that he is almost certainly the last man on earth. Sure, there are some positives that come with being the last person on earth. You can go live in the White House if you want. You can park in handicapped spots without an ounce of guilt. You can decorate your home with priceless works of art. You want to wear a pair of tighty-whiteys and nothing else every single day of the year? Not a problem. The Last Man on Earth is a comedy about a man trying to make lemonade out of the most soul-crushing lemon there is.

Bordertown is a new animated comedy about two families living in a Southwest desert town on the U.S./Mexico border that takes a satirical look at the cultural shifts occurring in America, where the U.S. Census forecasts that by 2017, Caucasians will be a minority. Set against this increasingly diverse backdrop, the series explores family, politics, and everything else in between. Bordertown centers on two clans: the Buckwalds and the Gonzalezes. Bud Buckwald is a married father of three and a border patrol agent who is just a tad behind the times and feels threatened by the cultural changes transforming his neighborhood. He lives next door to Ernesto Gonzalez, an ambitious immigrant and family man, who has been in the country less than 10 years, but is already living the American Dream. 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.
