From executive producers Jerry Bruckheimer (Pirates of the Caribbean films, CSI series) and Jeffrey Nachmanoff (Chicago Fire), and based upon an Israeli format, HOSTAGES is a thrilling and suspenseful new one-hour series about a family caught in the middle of a grand political conspiracy that will change their lives forever.
Emmy® and Golden Globe winner Toni Collette (The United States of Tara) stars as Ellen Sanders, a top surgeon in Washington, D.C., who has been tapped to operate on the President of the United States...and then kill him. Ellen is used to the pressures of her work and it is her steady nature and hand that has elevated her career and made her the President's choice. When masked men invade the Sanders home the night before the operation and take Ellen, her husband (Tate Donovan - Argo) and two children hostage, threatening to harm them unless Ellen does as they ask, Ellen's calm is rocked to the core - and her husband, hiding secrets of his own, is not much help. Ellen will do anything to protect her family...as will Duncan Carlisle (Golden Globe winner and Emmy® nominee Dylan McDermott - American Horror Story, The Practice). A righteous FBI agent and hero, Duncan is at the centre of a conspiracy involving the President and will fight for his cause at any cost -- even if it means putting another family at risk. As tensions mount and Ellen fights for time before suiting up for surgery, it becomes clear that the outwardly idyllic Sanders family isn't as perfect as originally thought -- nor are their captors as evil as one might suspect.
America. Liberty. Freedom. Candidates Cam Brady (Will Ferrell) and Marty Huggins (Zack Galifianakis) care about none of these as they race for the North Carolina congressional seat in this “laugh-out-loud” comedy (Empire).
When four-term incumbent Brady finds himself involved in a scandal, the wealthy powers that be decide to back newcomer Huggins as their pawn against him. As voting day approaches, the two literally pull no punches in the dirtiest and funniest political fight of all time...or at least until the next election.
Dark Blue takes place in the underbelly of Los Angeles, where criminals roam free under the veil of night or hide in the shadows of daylight. Wandering in and out of this seedy underworld is just another day at the office for Lieutenant Carter Shaw (series star Dylan McDermott) and his special undercover task force, a team of police officers so covert, many of their own colleagues don't even know of their actions.
They understand, better than anyone, that to bring down a criminal underworld one must first dive into its depths and get on the criminals' level. They know that in the world of law enforcement, being an undercover cop is among the most dangerous of jobs. They also know it is a huge adrenaline rush.
Sooner or later the truth must be told. Oscar Novak will finally come out of the closet and declare before friends, parents, the cosmos and the 11-o'clock news that he is , well, straight. Or will he?
Mattehew Perry, Neve Campbell and Dylan McDermott are the entango'd threesome of this hip, out-and-out (and outed!) gender bender also starring Oliver Platt. A business tycoon (McDermott) who wrongly thinks Oscar (Perry) is gay asks him to spy on his girlfriend (Campbell). Oscar, unwilling to hurt his chances of winning a lucartive architectural contact from the mogul, agrees... and falls madly in love. Do ask, do tell. For hot stars and steadily ramped-up comedy complications, it takes Three to Tango.
