Starring Robin Tunney, Adewale Akinnouye-Agbaje and Scott Cohen, “The Fix” follows Maya Travis, an L.A. district attorney who suffers a devastating defeat after prosecuting an A-list movie star for double murder.
With her high-profile career derailed, she flees for a quieter life in rural Washington. Eight years later, when this same star is under suspicion for another murder, Maya is lured back to the DA’s office for another chance at justice.
The Fix is executive produced/co-written by Elizabeth Craft & Sarah Fain and Marcia Clark.
Michael Katleman is an executive producer along with Laurie Zaks, David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman from Mandeville TV.
Produced by ABC Studios.
Eva Longoria executive produces this bold, provocative drama set at the last family-owned hotel in multicultural Miami Beach.
Charismatic Santiago Mendoza (Demián Bichir) owns the hotel, while his glamorous second wife, Gigi (Roselyn Sánchez), and their adult children enjoy the spoils of success.
The hotel’s loyal staff round out a contemporary, fresh take on an upstairs/downstairs story. Wealthy and beautiful guests bask in luxury, but scandals, escalating debt and explosive secrets hide beneath the picture-perfect exterior.
Produced by ABC Studios, the show is based on the Spanish series. Brian Tanen is the writer and executive producer.
Longoria and Ben Spector (UnbeliEVAble) are executive producers, in addition to Bob Daily.
Bill D’Elia is a director and an executive producer.
Following an emotional breakup, Will Chase (codename: “Whiskey Cavalier”), played by Scott Foley, is assigned to work with badass CIA operative Francesca “Frankie” Trowbridge (codename: “Fiery Tribune”), played by Lauren Cohan.
Together, they lead an inter-agency team of flawed, funny and heroic spies who periodically save the world—and each other—while navigating the rocky roads of friendship, romance and office politics.
The series is from writer/executive producer Dave Hemingson and executive producers Bill Lawrence and Jeff Ingold.
Peter Atencio is director and executive producer (pilot), and Scott Foley is producer of the series from Warner Bros. Television.
