A one hour drama, the Westworld series (ten episodes) offers a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin.

Inspired by the motion picture Westworld, written and directed by Michael Crichton, the Westworld series is produced by Bad Robot Productions, Jerry Weintraub Productions and Kilter Films in association with Warner Bros. Television. Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy both serve as executive producer/writer/director, with J.J. Abrams executive producing alongside Jerry Weintraub and Bryan Burk.


The half-hour comedy series Divorce (ten episodes) stars Sarah Jessica Parker, who also serves as an executive producer, as Frances, a woman who suddenly begins to reassess her life and her marriage, and finds that making a clean break and a fresh start is harder than she thought.

Divorce, also executive produced by Paul Simms, Sharon Horgan, Alison Benson and Aaron Kaplan, also stars Thomas Haden Church, Molly Shannon, Talia Balsam, Tracy Letts, Sterling Jerins and Charlie Kilgore. The pilot episode was written by Sharon Horgan and directed by Jesse Peretz.CjZ32cMVAAENrJ4


A half-hour comedy series, Insecure (eight episodes), stars Issa Rae, Yvonne Orji, Jay Ellis and Lisa Joyce and looks at the friendship of two black women and their uncomfortable experiences and racy tribulations.

Created and executive produced by Issa Rae, Insecure is also executive produced by Prentice Penny, Melina Matsoukas, Michael Rotenberg, Dave Becky and Jonathan Berry. Larry Wilmore serves as a consultant.


A half-hour comedy series High Maintenance (six episodes) follows a Brooklyn pot dealer who delivers to clients with neuroses as diverse as the city. The show stars Ben Sinclair as “The Guy,” a friendly pot dealer whose clients include an eccentric group of characters, revealing the dynamics of their lives. From the unexpected and offbeat to the predictable and mundane, the series provides a glimpse into the daily routines of the customers and how they light things up.

Created and written by the married duo of Katja Blichfeld and Ben Sinclair, and executive produced by Katja Blichfeld, Russell Gregory and Ben Sinclair.
