THE ENEMY WITHIN

In this fast-paced, spy-hunting thriller, Erica Shepherd (Jennifer Carpenter) is a brilliant former CIA operative, now known as the most notorious traitor in American history serving life in a Supermax prison.

Against every fiber of his being but with nowhere else to turn, FBI Agent Will Keaton (Morris Chestnut) enlists Shepherd to help track down a fiercely dangerous and elusive criminal she knows all too well.

For Keaton, it’s not easy to trust the woman who cost him so much.

While Shepherd and Keaton have different motivations for bringing the enemy to justice, they both know that to catch a spy… they must think like one.

The cast also includes Raza Jaffrey, Kelli Garner, Cassandra Freeman and Noah Mills.

The Enemy Within was created by Ken Woodruff, who executive produces alongside Matt Corman, Chris Ord and Charles Beeson.

Mark Pellington directs and executive produces the pilot.

Vernon Sanders also executive produces the pilot.

The Enemy Within is produced by Universal Television.

 

THE VILLAGE

Welcome to the Village, an apartment building in Brooklyn that appears like any other from the outside but is quite unique inside. The people who reside here have built a bonded family of friends and neighbors.

Sarah’s a nurse and single mom raising a creative teen; Gabe’s a young law student who got a much older and unexpected roommate; Ava must secure the future of her young, U.S.-born son when ICE comes knocking; Nick’s a veteran who’s returned from war; and the heart and soul of the building, Ron and Patricia, have captivating tales all their own.

These are the hopeful, heartwarming and challenging stories of life that prove family is everything – even if it’s the one you make with the people around you.

The cast includes Moran Atias, Dominic Chianese, Warren Christie, Frankie Faison, Jerod Haynes, Daren Kagasoff, Michaela McManus, Lorraine Toussaint and Grace Van Dien.

Mike Daniels will write and executive produce.

Minkie Spiro will direct and executive produce the pilot.

Jessica Rhoades also executive produces.

The Village is produced by Universal Television and 6107 Productions.

 

GOOD GIRLS

Season two is all about women dealing with the consequences of their criminal behavior. What happens in the wake of the trigger being pulled will have life-changing consequences that ripple through the entire season for Beth, Ruby and Annie.

The cast includes Christina Hendricks, Retta, Mae Whitman, Reno Wilson, Manny Montana, Lidya Jewett, Isaiah Stannard and Matthew Lillard.

In its first season “Good Girls” averaged a 1.5 rating in adults 18-49 and 6.1 million viewers overall in “live plus seven day” ratings from Nielsen Media Research, to improve the time period by +15% versus NBC’s year-earlier results in 18-49. When viewership on linear and non-linear platforms up to 35 days was added, the “Good Girls” season average in 18-49 increased to a 2.2 rating in 18-49. “Good Girls” went undefeated in the timeslot in 18-49 versus CBS’ competing drama “Scorpion” and ABC’s competing rookie drama “The Crossing” (“live plus same day”).

A.P. BIO

After losing out on a chance to get out of Toledo and into his dream job at a prestigious university in Season 1, disgraced Harvard philosophy professor Jack Griffin (Glenn Howerton) remains determined to get out of town and regain prominence in the academic world.

To do this, Jack decides to begin work on a book detailing a new philosophical thesis. This thesis will require him to immerse himself in Toledo more than ever before while continuing to enlist the help of his students and friends at Whitlock – including Principal Durbin (Patton Oswalt).

Jack will also find himself intellectually challenged and charmed by a woman he meets in the last place he’d expect: the payroll department of Whitlock High.

The cast also includes Lyric Lewis, Mary Sohn, Jean Villepique and Paula Pell.

A.P. Bio is written and executive produced by Mike O’Brien. Seth Meyers, Mike Shoemaker, Andrew Singer and Lorne Michaels also serve as executive producers.
