BOOM - ONE HOUR DRAMA
The largest oil discovery in U.S. history is happening right now in North Dakota
and people are coming from all over the country to strike it rich. Heading there
with big dreams and sky-high ambition are the young married couple of Billy
and Cody Lefever (Rebecca Rittenhouse), pulling their truck full of washers and
dryers to start their first laundromat. Their plan: to lever-up, and step-by-step,
build their fortune from scratch.
The growing boomtown of Winslow, ND has 100% employment with oilrig jobs
paying $100/per hour. While the champagne is flowing and the clubs and
restaurants are packed, living here is shockingly expensive and everyone is too
ambitious for a normal paying job.
Just ask Sheriff Tip Hamilton - whose department is understaffed as the crime
rate is rising - not a good thing in a town full of roughnecks, grifters and newly
made millionaires with cash to burn on anything. This really is a modern-day
The town's wealthiest and most powerful man is Hap Briggs. This iconic selfmade
oil baron has made billions and lost them too, and he's married to Carla
Briggs, as brilliant in business as she is beautiful. Together, they have the
inside track on everything oil, turning that world to their advantage. This power
couple is out to charm Oil And Gas Commissioner, Myron Stipple, a Mormon
and not easily seduced by the decadence of the Briggs' lifestyle.
Hap's children, Wick (Scott Michael Foster) and Lacey, have their major
challenges with stepmother Carla, but it is Wick's complicated relationship with
his successful father that leads to the ultimate showdown between father and
In the pilot, Hap cuts Wick off, taking him out of his will. Wick gets help from his
lover, and ambitious businesswoman, Jules Jackman. Spurned by his father,
Wick's choice is to become a dangerous wild card in the oil game, building his
own Cowboy Mafia from scratch.
Hap's daughter, Lacey, is on the opposite side of the oil business: a fracktivist.
She's a bleeding-heart environmentalist - with a brain. Job one is to stop the
drilling before it destroys the land, which includes sacred Native American burial
grounds the oil is buried two miles under.
Lacey and AJ Menendez, Hap's driver, are having a secret affair, and he takes
Lacey's side in this oil debate. But AJ has his own agenda and is not who he
seems to be.
Billy and Cody's dreams are derailed right from the jump when their truck is hit
and their washers and dryers are destroyed, strewn like tumbled dice across the
highway. But oil fever is contagious, and after hearing a tip, they leverage
everything they have to make a last-ditch play to be become part of the boom,
putting them squarely in bed with the Brigg's family, way over their heads.

THE ADVERSARIES - ONE HOUR DRAMA
For the past few decades, the Hayward family has been as close to a New York
City legal dynasty as it gets. This dynasty is put in turmoil when the patriarch is
indicted on federal charges and the daughter, a star prosecutor, finds herself in
a difficult position, stuck between the family she loves and the office she works
Parents Charlie (Terry O'Quinn) and Maggie Hayward (Christine Lahti) built a
successful law firm on their dynamism, tenacity and brilliance as lawyers.
They've garnered well-earned respect from their peers and they've also
attracted numerous high-profile clients and cases. While Charlie and
Maggie may no longer live together, and are in the midst of a drawn out divorce,
they still love each other and operate their firm as unequivocal partners.
Their eldest daughter Jaime has followed in, but deviated from, her parents'
footsteps as she pursues her career as an Assistant US Attorney. Like her
parents, Jaime is ambitious and intelligent - having already made a name for
herself working at the Department of Justice. She often hasn't seen eye to eye
with her father and she thought that by not joining his firm, she could finally
escape his shadow.
Jaime and Charlie find themselves facing off on opposite sides of the same
case when Charlie's longtime client and good friend, Cooper Landings, is
arrested for defrauding innocent investors to the tune of millions of dollars.
The line between business and family blurs even further when a new
development soon emerges: Charlie is sold out and framed by his own client,
and indicted as a co-conspirator in the case. He's accused of being a party to
mail fraud, wire fraud and money laundering among other things. His arrest
causes a media firestorm, prompting Jaime to get to the bottom of the charges.
Sensing that her boss Southern District US Attorney Ted Fontana seems hellbent
on putting Charlie away for a long time, Jamie is faced with a tough gut
check of her loyalty: career or family?
With a little coaxing from Maggie, Jaime leaves her job and switches sides to
defend Charlie against the bogus charges. Her team includes the Haywards'
firm's third partner Danny Vasquez as well as rising young litigator Aisha Irby.
They get further help from another member of the Hayward family: Cam,
Jamie's little sister. Cam is a musician-turned-paralegal whose interest in the
law tends to waver as she wrestles over giving up her dream of being a singersongwriter.
While Charlie's case galvanizes the family, it also re-opens some old wounds -
specifically about Charlie and Maggie's only son, Kyle. Years earlier, Kyle fell in
with a bad crowd, which ultimately led to his disappearance and presumed
death. The loss of Kyle was a game-changer for this family, leaving unhealed
wounds and persistent tensions.
The resulting proceedings bring out all the tensions, frustrations and alliances
within a strong but difficult family in this compelling comedic drama, a family
show wrapped up in a procedural, from David Zabel (Detroit 1-8-7, ER).
