L.A.'s Finest

From the universe of the Jerry Bruckheimer/Michael Bay "Bad Boys" franchise, this series follows Syd Burnett (Gabrielle Union), last seen in Miami taking down a drug cartel, who has seemingly left her complicated past behind to become an LAPD detective.

Paired with a new partner, Nancy McKenna (Jessica Alba), a working mom with an equally complex history, Syd is forced to confront how her unapologetic lifestyle may be masking a greater personal secret.

Taking on the most dangerous criminals in Los Angeles while skirting the rules, and speed limits, Syd and Nancy become a force to be reckoned with - on the streets, and in each other's lives.

In the series premiere, "Pilot": After a young boy crashes through L.A. traffic with his dead nanny in the back seat, Syd and Nancy discover a connection to a drug cartel.

On Becoming a God in Central Florida

Starring Kirsten Dunst (Fargo) and set in a small Orlando-adjacent town in 1992, the series is a story about the cult of free enterprise and one women's relentless pursuit of the American Dream.

On Becoming a God in Central Florida follows Krystal Stubbs (Dunst), a minimum-wage water park employee who lies, schemes and cons her way up the ranks of Founders American Merchandise (FAM) - the cultish, flag-waving, multibillion-dollar pyramid scheme that drove her to ruin in the first place, run by the powerful Obie Garbeau II.

Determined to make a better life for herself, Krystal dives deep into FAM and develops a tangled relationship with FAM's most loyal and fanatical follower Cody, until her business begins to affect those closest to her.

These include Ernie, her affable water-park boss, and his FAM-skeptic wife Bets.

In the series premiere, "The Stinker Thinker": Krystal Stubbs doubles down on her husband's dreams while he wrestles with leaving his J-O-B.

Cody loses a friend, but meets his hero.
