Anna Faris and Emmy® winner Allison Janney star in this hilarious and often heart-wrenching comedy from executive producer Chuck Lorre (The Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men, Mike & Molly). Christy (Faris) is a single mom who, after years of questionable choices, is now sober and trying to get her life on track. She’s tested daily by her mother, Bonnie (Janney), who Christy still considers the root of her troubles, even though she has also gotten sober. Now mother and daughter are working to overcome their past mistakes and build a better future for their family. Christy has gone back to school and is pursuing her dream of becoming a lawyer, while Bonnie attempts to have a healthy romantic relationship with her fiancée Adam and figure out what she wants to be when she grows up. Through all this, Christy and Bonnie rely on her support system from AA, including wise Marjorie, the wealthy and sometimes misguided Jill; and the overly emotional Wendy. Together, they help each other stay sober and face whatever life throws at them.

From Emmy Award®-winning writer/producers Dan Goor and Michael Schur (Parks and Recreation), starring Emmy® and Golden Globe® Award winner Andy Samberg (Saturday Night Live) and Emmy Award® winner Andre Braugher (Men of a Certain Age, Homicide: Life on the Street), the Golden Globe® Award-winning Brooklyn Nine-Nine is a single-camera ensemble comedy about what happens when a talented, but carefree, detective gets a new captain with a lot to prove. Detective Jake Peralta (Samberg) is a good enough cop that he’s never had to work that hard or follow the rules too closely. Perhaps because he has the best arrest record among his colleagues, he’s been enabled – if not indulged – throughout his entire career. That is, until the precinct gets a new commanding officer, Captain Ray Holt (Braugher), who reminds this hotshot cop to respect the badge.

The Simpsons

Recently nominated for a 2017 Emmy® Award for Outstanding Animated Program, and currently in production on its record-annihilating 29th season, The Simpsons continues to strike a chord with viewers for irreverently poking fun at anything and everything.

PRODUCTION COMPANY:  20th Century Fox Television, FOX Entertainment

EXECUTIVE PRODUCERS:  Emily Spivey, Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, Kristen Wiig, and Seth Cohen

VOICE CAST:  Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids) as Jenny Hart, Maya Rudolph (The Good Place) as Betty Hart, Jillian Bell (Workaholics) as Violet Hart, and Ike Barinholtz (Neighbors) as Wayne Edwards (Guest voice cast: Fortune Feimster as Brenda, Drew Tarver as Randy, Mary Steenburgen as Crystalynn)

Bob’s Burgers

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. His misadventures in fast food are chronicled in the animated series Bob’s Burgers, where the focus of each episode typically boils down to three essential ingredients: a man, his family and their burger joint.

Bob’s Burgers was created by Loren Bouchard (Lucy, the Daughter of the Devil), whose talents include animator, voice actor, screenwriter, producer, television director and composer. He conceived the show after developing the series Home Movies many years earlier. With consecutive nominations for the Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program in 2012 and 2013, Bob’s Burgers finally bagged the prize in 2014.

Family Guy

These are the (mis)adventures of Peter Griffin—an endearingly ignorant patriarch of the Griffin clan—and his hilariously offbeat family of middle-class New Englanders in Quahog, Rhode Island. Lois, Peter’s wife, is a stay-at-home mom with no patience for her brood’s antics: 18-year-old Meg is an outcast at school and the Griffin family punching bag; 13-year-old Chris is a socially awkward teen who doesn’t have a clue about the opposite sex; and one-year-old Stewie is a diabolically clever baby whose burgeoning sexuality is very much a work in progress. Rounding out the Griffin household is Brian, the family dog and a ladies’ man who is one step away from AA.

With its razor-sharp humour, spot-on parodies, well-executed animation and orchestra-backed, original music, Family Guy continues to entertain its die-hard audience. Since premiering in 1999, the Seth MacFarlane creation has reached bona fide cult status among fans and has garnered numerous awards, including an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Comedy Series—only the second animated series in TV history to be receive that nom.
