The Liberator

Based on true events, a diverse, deeply brave crew of ragtag soldiers become some of the most heroic fighters of the European invasion in World War II.

The Liberator tells the riveting true story of the bloodiest and most dramatic march to victory of the Second World War: the battlefield odyssey of maverick US Army officer Felix Sparks and his infantry unit as they fought for over 500 days to liberate Europe.

Based on the book The Liberator: One World War II Soldier's 500-Day Odyssey by Alex Kershaw, the series was created by Jeb Stuart (Die Hard, The Fugitive).

The four-part series is the first ever produced in Trioscope™ Enhanced Hybrid Animation, a new patent-pending technology combining state-of-the-art CGI with live-action performance.

This brings an unprecedented level of emotion and fidelity to the animated drama experience.

For Peete's Sake

Holly Robinson Peete and Rodney Peete were two of the brightest stars in their fields in the 80s and 90s.

Holly lit up the small screen from an early age with starring roles in 21 Jump Street and Hangin' with Mr. Cooper, and her husband and NFL quarterback Rodney Peete dominated the league for 16 years.

Now the duo are giving viewers an intimate look at their hectic and often-times comical lives as they attempt to balance raising their four kids, running a charity (the HollyRod Foundation) and spending time with Holly's über-manager mother Dolores, who is still wheeling and dealing even as she approaches 80 years young.

In a household where constant activity and change are the norm, the series celebrates the chaotic, yet loving dynamic of life in this American family.

In its premiere season, the Peetes fully display their knack for getting the most out of life no matter what curveballs might be thrown their way.

Holly and Rodney are loving parents to their 17-year-old son RJ who has autism and was told he would never speak.

Today, not only can't he stop talking, but he enjoys advocating for special needs children.

Meanwhile, his twin sister Ryan is trying to decide whether to go to college or jumpstart a career in music.

Thirteen-year-old son Robinson caught the athletic gene from his father and would love to follow in his footsteps, but all the latest concussion studies have Holly wishing for a less dangerous choice.

Rodney is beginning to feel the aches and pains in retirement, prompting Holly to have him visit a doctor to get tested after so many years playing football.

And as a self-proclaimed "black-tress" of a certain age, Holly has struggled in recent years to find acting roles suitable for her and is ready to branch out and develop a lifestyle brand of her own.

Whether they're setting up for their next big fundraiser, coaching their kids into lives of their own, or just trying to keep that special spark alive in their marriage, there's never a dull moment with the Peetes.

Told through the eyes of veteran homicide detectives, local beat reporters and the victim's families who have lost so much, these are the cases they will never forget.
