Rake

A legal drama, based on an Australian series of the same name, this show follows the comedic and chaotic life of a criminal defense lawyer. Keegan Deane (Greg Kinnear) is often described as many things but none of them are very flattering. Brilliant and frustratingly charming, Keegan is one of life's great addicts. His staggering lack of discretion and inability to self-censor land him the cases that nobody else will touch. Behind that lies a resolute optimism and belief in justice that fuel his dogged determination to defend those who seem beyond redemption. He always tries to do the right thing, but at the same time struggles to save himself from the many self-destructive elements that plague his own life, such as his overindulgence in women, gambling and other excesses. Keegan gets a majority of his cases from his best friend since law school, Ben Leon (John Ortiz). Ben's married to Scarlet (Necar Zadegan), another of Keegan's old friends. She's an Los Angeles Assistant District Attorney and quite often Keegan's opponent in court. Keegan also has plenty of personal trials and tribulations, including his mounting debt to his bookie and his overlapping liaisons with various women. Melissa "Mikki" Partridge (Bojana Novakovic) is his favorite prostitute and de-facto love interest. And then there's his ongoing battle with the IRS. He's being prosecuted by David Potter (David Harbour), an IRS tax attorney. He looks ten years younger than his age and has been nicknamed "Harry Potter" by Keegan. Thankfully Keegan has Leanne Zander (Tara Summers), his no-nonsense assistant, to help clean up his messes. His ex-wife, psychologist Maddy (Miranda Otto), begrudgingly acts as his therapist. She's also the mother of their hormonal son, Finn (Ian Colletti), who displays many of the same tendencies as his father.

He returns to his homeland for his nephew's wedding after a self-imposed 20-year exile in America.

He braces himself to confront the stark realities of his father and older brother Jamal's (Ashraf Barhom) harsh rule, and finds himself at odds with Jamal's wife, Leila (Moran Atias).

Dominion

This supernatural drama is set in the near future, some 25 years after "The Extinction War" -- when an army of lower angels, assembled by the archangel Gabriel, waged war against mankind. The archangel Michael, turning against his own kind, chose to side with humanity. Rising out of the ashes of this long battle are newly fortified cities which protect human survivors. The city of Vega is a glistening empire that has been formed from the ruins of what was once Las Vegas. Abandoned by his father at a young age, Alex Lannon (Christopher Egan) became a soldier. He rose through the ranks to join the Archangel Corps -- an elite unit responsible for the protection of Vega's aristocracy. Through his assignment to House Riesen, Alex developed a secret relationship with Claire, daughter of the Lord of the City. Often rebellious, Alex tries to balance his sense of duty with his need for freedom. A legendary warrior throughout history, the Archangel Michael (Tom Wisdom) was the only angel to take humanity's side during the Extermination War and turned against his own kind. Michael has watched over Alex his entire life, but is just now beginning to understand the complexities of having such a close relationship with humans. Michael's scornful and jealous brother is the Archangel Gabriel (Carl Beukes) -- the leader of the angels in the war against humanity. Though a more colorful personality than Michael, Gabriel is full of hate for mankind and wants nothing less than to wipe them out entirely. General Riesen (Alan Dale) led humanity in the Extermination War twenty-five years ago, and today leads the city of Vega as Lord of the City. A paragon of strength and duty, Riesen helped build Vega, and imposed a class system as a way to keep order and ensure the city's survival. His daughter is Claire Riesen (Roxanne McKee) and she's next in line for her father's position as Lord of the City. She is beloved by the people and always does her best to watch out for the city's lower classes -- despite her sheltered and privileged upbringing. Although she is in love with Alex, Claire is torn when her father insists that the only way to help the city move past the caste system she hates so much is to marry William Whele. As the Secretary of Commerce, David Whele (Anthony Head) is the chief administrator of Vega and the second most powerful leader in the city. A ruthless and cunning political operator, this ambitious man is always on the hunt to keep or grow his power -- by any means necessary. His son is William Whele (Luke Allen-Gale), Vega's Principate. Specifically, he's the religious leader of the Church of The Savior, the religion that has grown since the Extermination War all based around the concept of "The Chosen One." Kind hearted to his flock, he is very much in love with Claire and welcomes their betrothal -- even if he admits it is a political move by their fathers. Arika (Shivani Ghai) is a diplomat from Helena, one of the other cities which have risen in the aftermath of the war. She's also the beautiful and wily wife of that city's Queen Evelyn. She arrives in Vega as part of a negotiating party. A stranger in a strange land, she shares a clandestine relationship with David Whele. As one of General Riesen's consuls in the Senate, Becca Thorn (Rosalind Halstead) is one of the city's most powerful leaders and oversees all scientific and medical personnel in the city. She acts as confidant to General Riesen and is a close friend to Claire. Becca carries on a forbidden affair with Michael -- one that involves stronger feelings than even she may be comfortable with.
