GRANDFATHERED

Premieres September 29, 2015

When you’re so skilled at bachelorhood that it’s on autopilot, what’s the fastest way to bring your cruise-controlled lifestyle to a crashing halt? Television icon John Stamos (“Full House,” “ER”) stars in a new comedy about the ultimate bachelor who discovers he’s not only a father, but a grandfather. Successful restaurateur and man-about-town JIMMY MARTINO (Stamos) is used to being the most suave, most handsome and most single person in the room. All that changes with the surprise appearance of Jimmy’s adult son, GERALD (Josh Peck, THE MINDY PROJECT), and his baby daughter, EDIE. Now Jimmy has to unlearn a lifetime of blissful selfishness and grapple with the fact that he went straight from single to grandfather in six seconds flat.

 

THE GRINDER

Premieres September 29, 2015

How many TV lawyers does it take to try a real-life case in a real-life courtroom? One, and his name is THE GRINDER. Starring Emmy Award nominee Rob Lowe (“Parks and Recreation,” “The West Wing”), THE GRINDER is a new comedy about a famous TV lawyer at a crossroads. When his legal series ends, he decides to move back home and join his family’s real law firm – despite having no formal education, no bar certification, no license to practice and no experience in an actual courtroom.

 

SCREAM QUEENS

Premieres September 22, 2015

Wallace University is rocked by a string of murders. Kappa House, the most sought-after sorority for pledges, is ruled with an iron fist (in a pink glove) by its Queen Bitch, CHANEL OBERLIN (Emma Roberts, “American Horror Story: Freak Show,” “Scream 4”). But when anti-Kappa DEAN MUNSCH (Jamie Lee Curtis, “Halloween,” “A Fish Called Wanda,” “True Lies”) decrees that sorority pledging must be open to all students, and not just the school’s silver-spooned elite, all hell is about to break loose, as a devil-clad killer begins wreaking havoc, claiming one victim, one episode at a time.  Part black comedy, part slasher flick, SCREAM QUEENS is a modern take on the classic whodunit, in which every character has a motive for murder…or could easily be the next blood-soaked casualty.

Do you have Netflix I do? Are you thinking of getting Netflix? Well, I got some news for ya. A lot of stuff is coming in the month of August. A LOT…

XFINITY-SHARE-Social-Birthday

COMCAST CUSTOMERS CAN NOW “SHARE” LIVE STREAMS TO THE TV

New Xfinity Share App Lets X1 Users Live Stream Video and Send Photos and Recorded Videos to Each Other in Real Time

Comcast today announced that Xfinity customers on the X1 Entertainment Operating System can now live stream their favorite life moments over the Internet from their smartphone to the television to share with friends and family.  Through the company’s new Xfinity Share app, customers can live stream or send photos and recorded videos to their TV, or to the TV of another X1 customer, as well as live stream and share content to mobile phones.

To use Xfinity Share, currently both the sender and receiver must be Xfinity Triple Play customers with X1 DVR capable set-top boxes.

“We’re giving our customers the power to share special moments in their lives as they happen,” said Patti Loyack, Vice President of Communications, Comcast Cable.  “Whether a child’s baseball game, a graduation or just a beautiful sunset, Share lets users broadcast whatever they see in real time to the biggest screen in the home.  So now a grandmother in San Francisco can watch along on her TV at the exact moment her grandson in Philadelphia blows out his birthday candles.”

To stream to the TV, users just need to follow these simple steps: open the Xfinity Share app, select “Stream Live” and accept the notification that appears on the TV.

The Xfinity Share app is available to download for free from the Apple Store for iOS devices or from Google Play for Android devices.  The app leverages WebRTC, an open Internet standard that supports real-time communication over Web browsers.  Comcast is one of the first companies to optimize this technology for the TV.

“WebRTC is a powerful technology that we’re bringing to the TV,” said Franklyn Athias, Senior Vice President, Comcast IP Communications Services.  “WebRTC and X1 are a natural fit.  The most advanced television entertainment operating system and the most flexible real-time communications tool combine to offer a cross-platform, multimedia experience like no other.  We’re connecting customers to whom and what they love in more ways than ever.”

Later this year, additional features will be added to Share including the ability to:

– – – – –

Share content with virtually anyone by sending a URL via email

Send content to up to five people at the same time

Stop, pause and rewind the live stream

Store the live stream in the X1 Photos app

– – –

Any photos or recorded videos sent from Xfinity Share are stored in and accessible via the X1 Photos app. Customers can turn off share notifications in the Photos app as well.

Odyssey

From writer-director Peter Horton (“Grey’s Anatomy”) and writers Adam Armus & Kay Foster (“The Following”) comes “Odyssey,” a complex journey through global politics, corporate espionage, and military secrets involving three strangers who only have one thing in common … the truth. In this “Traffic”-like action drama, an international conspiracy explodes when the lives of a female Special Forces soldier, a disillusioned corporate lawyer and a political activist from a privileged family unexpectedly collide.

After a team of American soldiers battles jihadists in North Africa, they’re shocked to learn that they’ve stumbled upon and killed Al Qaeda’s top commander. Sgt. Odelle Ballard (Anna Friel, “Pushing Daisies”) — a soldier, mother, wife and the unit’s only female member — discovers computer files that prove that a major U.S. corporation is funding the jihadists. But before she can tell anyone, her team is attacked and killed. The world is told that the unit was wiped out by enemy militants, but the truth is that Odelle survived and is the only witness to her unit’s true assassins: private military contractors Osela (think “Blackwater”).

As Odelle struggles to survive and find her way home, in New York former U.S. Attorney turned corporate litigator Peter Decker (Peter Facinelli, “Nurse Jackie”) finds himself embroiled in a merger with the same company that funded the jihadists. As Peter begins to connect the corrupt dots of this company’s terrorist involvement, Harrison Walters (Jake Robinson, “The Carrie Diaries”), a political activist and trust fund kid, meets a hacker, Bob Offer (Nate Mooney, “The Riches”), who claims to have unearthed a massive military-industrial-complex conspiracy. Bob is right: He’s stumbled onto the same cover-up that Odelle discovered, which will soon become a national headline with lethal implications. The only way they’ll ever save their country, their families and themselves is by joining forces and exposing the people behind it.

“Odyssey” is a Universal Television, Fabrik Entertainment, and Red Arrow Entertainment production. The series was created by Peter Horton (“Grey’s Anatomy”), Adam Armus (“Heroes”), and Kay Foster (“The Following”). Mikkel Bondesen (“The Killing), Henrik Bastin (“Bosch”), Kristen Campo (“The Killing”) and Simon Maxwell (“Off the Hook”) serve as executive producers along with Horton, Armus and Foster.
