Matador TV show on El Rey

Matador

This action TV series revolves popular soccer star Antonio "Tony" Bravo (Gabriel Luna). A world-class athlete from Boyle Heights known as "Matador," Tony is known for his ventures both on and off the field. Charismatic, successful, and a player who can turn a game around with his presence and skill, Tony is a swinging bachelor with an active social life. But he's not a member of the LA Riot soccer team simply to help grow his ego. Unbeknownst to the public and his family, Tony was recruited from the DEA by a clandestine spy organization in the United States Government and is under orders to infiltrate the life of billionaire team owner Andrés Galan, who is suspected of using his network of communications satellites for wildly illegal purposes. Polished and sophisticated, Andrés Galan (Alfred Molina) made a fortune in telecommunications. He's suspected of having used his personal network of satellites to assist in establishing a one-world government. He has no idea that his new star player is an undercover agent. Annie Mason (Nicky Whelan) is intelligent, analytical, and beautiful despite her best efforts to be known for other merits. She's Tony's control agent and the head of a very small and very secret undercover unit of the United States Government. Annie is also an expert at either dressing up like a fashion model or killing an enemy with her bare hands. Her partner is Noah Peacott (Neil Hopkins), a brilliant but awkward man who's fond of blurting out uncomfortable truths. Where Annie manages to make Tony's nerves tingle with anticipation, Noah manages to annoy Tony -- all day and every day. Ernest Macdonald (Jude Ciccolella) is the ornery head coach of the LA Riot and he's under intense pressure from Galan to have a series of unbroken victories. He's been a coach for years, and he's completely illusion-free about the flawed characters of his star players. He also knows that stardom has a corrosive effect on the human personality. Alec Holester (Tanc Sade) is the English striker for the LA Riot team and a master player who is past his prime -- but is still very skilled. Scoring eight goals for Team England in the last World Cup, he's been on top of the sports world for years and is wryly amused by his own talent for living in the limelight with a girl on each arm. Caesar Arguello (Peter Gadiot) is the sole proponent of the "art" of soccer and a former dancer. Baby-faced Caesar is somewhat of a misfit among the ruthless, barbaric LA Riot players. His sensitivity intrigues the most unsuspecting of characters, inciting a surprising, forbidden romance. Samuel (Louis Ozawa Changchien) is an intimidating, creepy 20-something Asian man with bleached hair, a pierced eyebrow, and a quasi-punk-rock aesthetic that puts him out of step with much of Andrés Galan's well-heeled crowd. A criminal errand boy for Galan in charge of murders and assorted kinds of evil courier work, Samuel is silent but deadly.
The Strain TV show on FX

The Strain

A high concept thriller, this TV show follows Doctor Ephraim Goodweather, the head of the Center for Disease Control Canary Team in New York City. When a plane lands at John F. Kennedy International Airport with the lights off and doors sealed, Eph and his team --including Nora Martinez and Jim Kent -- are called upon to investigate. Inside, they find 200 corpses and four survivors. Later, the bodies start disappearing from the morgues and the team soon realizes that it's a mysterious viral outbreak -- one with the hallmarks of an ancient and evil strain of vampirism. As the strain spreads, the team and an assembly of everyday New Yorkers are forced to wage war for the fate of humanity. An intelligent and driven biochemist, team member Martinez (Mia Maestro) is in love with Eph but understands he's trying to repair his marriage, and she encourages him to be a part of his son's life. Born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Nora moved to the US with her mother when she was eight. Jim Kent (Sean Astin) has a wife dying from cancer. In an effort to save her life, Jim makes a poor decision early on that puts everything into jeopardy. Kelly Goodweather (Natalie Brown) is Eph's estranged wife who's become smarter and more secure since separating from him. A school teacher by day, her focus is on their 11-year-old son son, Zack (Ben Hyland) -- a asthmatic, quiet and self-reliant boy. He is her life's work and her legacy. Her boyfriend, Matt Sayles (Drew Nelson), moved in with them and he is more available (and subservient) than Eph ever was. Abraham Setrakian (David Bradley) is a pawnbroker in his 80's who has the vigor of a much younger man. In his early teens, Setrakian first encountered the Ancient vampire known as the Master (Robert Maillet) during his internment at a Nazi concentration camp. Setrakian failed to kill him then -- and has spent his life waiting and preparing for another opportunity. Eldritch Palmer (Jonathan Hyde) is a wealthy, esteemed businessman and the owner of the Stoneheart Group. He has struggled with his poor health all his life, but he does not planning on dying. The Master's chief lieutenant is Thomas Eichhorst (Richard Sammel) who retains his human appearance and more individuality in order to walk among the living. During the second World War, he helped run the death camps -- which is where he first encountered Setrakian and the Master. A charismatic, second-generation Russian from Brooklyn, Vasiliy Fet (Kevin Durand) is the best exterminator for the NYC Bureau of Pest Control. He considers himself the steward of NYC. Augustin 'Gus' Elizalde (Miguel Gomez) is a Latino gangbanger from Spanish Harlem. He wants to do well by his mother who fought to make a good life for him. When Gus agrees to make some quick cash, it's too much money to say "no". Soon, he is wondering what kind of mess he's gotten himself into this time. Gabriel Bolivar (Jack Kesy) is one of the four survivors of the Regis flight 753. He's a world famous rock star with a penchant for women and drugs. His stature and popularity make him especially enticing to the Master.

Welcome to Sweden TV show on NBC

Welcome to Sweden

Based on events in the life of Greg Poehler, this comedy TV show revolves around Bruce Evans (Poehler) and Emma Wiik (Josephine Bornebusch), seemingly the perfect couple. He's a successful money manager to the stars in New York. He lives with Emma, the sweet woman from Sweden whom he loves and adores. A rare combination of intelligent, funny, kind and beautiful, Emma believes she has finally found her true soul mate in Bruce. After being with him a year, she makes the life-changing decision to move back to her native Stockholm to accept a prestigious banking job. She's surprised and thrilled that he agrees to move with her to begin a new life together. With no job, friends or any real clue about what he is getting himself into, Bruce is quick to face many unique challenges and culture clashes. The most notable one is how to win over Emma's strange and very Swedish family. They move in with her parents -- Viveka (Lena Olin) and Birger (Claes Månsson). Viveka is a therapist who dearly loves her family but has difficulty showing it -- especially to Emma. She also takes an instant dislike Bruce. Birger is a retired sea captain and is a typical Swede -- tall, kind and silent. He doesn't speak much English which only adds to the communication barriers. Emma's younger brother is Gustav (Christopher Wagelin), a 28-year old mega-slacker who can do no wrong in his mother's eyes. Birger's younger brother is Bengt (Per Svensson), an American-adoring rockabilly type who seems to live his life through Hollywood movies. Bruce's parents are Wayne (Patrick Duffy) and Nancy (Illeana Douglas). Wayne is conservative by nature and resides in a small Midwestern town. Nancy wants nothing but the best for her son, but can't comprehend his decision to leave his happy life in New York.
