About the Shows:
- 60 MINUTES, television’s #1 primetime news program for more than five decades, presents features focusing on people and events in the news and behind the headlines.
- 48 HOURS investigates the most intriguing crime and justice cases that touch on all areas of the human experience. The series has developed a rich history of original reporting and impact journalism that has helped exonerate wrongly convicted people, caused cold cases to be reopened and solved, and along the way changed lives.
- SEAL TEAM is a military drama that follows the professional and personal lives of the most elite unit of Navy SEALs as they train for, plan and execute the most dangerous missions that our country can ask of them.
- Inspired by the classic television series and feature film, S.W.A.T. tells the story of a locally born-and-raised sergeant tasked with running a specialized tactical unit that is the last stop in law enforcement in Los Angeles.
- MADAM SECRETARY follows shrewd, determined Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord, who drives international diplomacy and circumvents protocol as she negotiates global and domestic issues, both at the White House and at home.
- BULL is the head of one of the most prolific trial-consulting firms of all time. Brilliant, brash and charming, Dr. Bull is the ultimate puppet master as he combines psychology, human intuition and high-tech data to learn what makes jurors, attorneys, witnesses and the accused tick.
- HAWAII FIVE-0 is a contemporary take on the classic series about an elite federalized task force whose mission is to wipe out the crime that washes up on the islands’ sun-drenched beaches.
- MACGYVER is an action-adventure drama about 20-something Angus “Mac” MacGyver, who creates a clandestine organization within the U.S. government, where he uses his extraordinary talent for unconventional problem-solving and his vast scientific knowledge to save lives.
