New Shows

Stumptown: Dex Parios is a strong, assertive, and sharp-witted army veteran with a complicated love life, gambling debt, and a brother to take care of in Portland, OR. Her military intelligence skills make her a great P.I., but her unapologetic style puts her in the firing line of hard-core criminals and not quite in alliance with the police. Based on the Stumptown graphic novel series.

Emergence: A sheriff takes in a young child she finds near the site of a mysterious accident who has no memory of what has happened. The investigation draws her into a conspiracy larger than she ever imagined, and the child’s identity is at the center of it all.

Mixed-ish: Rainbow Johnson recounts her experience growing up in a mixed-race family in the ‘80s and the constant dilemmas they had to face over whether to assimilate or stay true to themselves. Bow’s parents Paul and Alicia decide to move from a hippie commune to the suburbs to better provide for their family. As her parents struggle with the challenges of their new life, Bow and her siblings navigate a mainstream school in which they’re perceived as neither black nor white. This family’s experiences illuminate the challenges of finding one’s own identity when the rest of the world can’t decide where you belong.

United We Fall: Multi-cultural family sitcom that shows how, when two people with young children and overzealous extended families truly love each other, barely anything is possible.

The Baker and the Beauty: Daniel Garcia is working in the family bakery and doing everything that his loving Cuban parents and siblings expect him to do. But on a wild Miami night, he meets Noa Hamilton, an international superstar and fashion mogul, and his life moves into the spotlight. Will this unlikely couple upend their lives to be together and pull their families into a culture clash?

For Life: Serialized legal and family drama about a prisoner who becomes a lawyer, litigating cases for other inmates while fighting to overturn his own life sentence for a crime he didn’t commit. His quest for freedom is driven by his desperate desire to get back to the family he loves and reclaims the life that was stolen from him. Told through the window of his ferocious struggle and his complicated relationship with a progressive female prison warden, it also examines the flaws and challenges in our penal and legal systems.
