    Co-produced by Harpo Productions and Sony Pictures Television (SPT) and

    health and wellness talk show that offers topical newsworthy information,

    HANK ('A')
    ----------
    Executive produced by and starring Kelsey Grammer (FRASIER), Hank Pryor
    (Grammer) is an industry titan who suddenly finds himself out of work,
    almost out of money and around a wife and kids for whom he's never made
    much time. Hank moves the family back to River Bend, Virginia, the
    small-town site of his first business success, fancying himself a
    corporate phoenix who will rise from the ashes. But living in a smaller
    house, in a smaller town, in a smaller, well, life, isn't what Hank
    thought it would be. Hank's wife Tilly (Melinda McGraw, MAD MEN) expects
    Hank to put aside his all-business attitude and become an actual part of
    the family - to be a real father to his opinionated 15-year-old daughter
    and odd 10-year-old son. Complicating matters is the presence of Tilly's
    brother, Grady (David Koechner, Get Smart), who has always envied Hank's
    success and is now delighted to be around him in his darkest hour.
    Despite his recent setbacks, however, Hank is confident he's on the road
    back to the top.

    Cast: Kelsey Grammer (FRASIER) as Hank; Melinda McGraw (MAD MEN) as
    Tilly; David Koechner (Get Smart) as Grady; Macey Cruthird (HOPE & FAITH)

    THE MIDDLE ('A')
    ----------------
    This timely comedy explores the challenges and triumphs of trying to
    raise a family in today's difficult economic climate. Frankie Heck
    (multiple Emmy Award-winning Patricia Heaton, EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND) is
    a superhero. Well, no, not an actual superhero - but it sometimes seems
    that way, as getting her kids Axl (Charlie McDermott), Sue (Eden Sher,
    SONS AND DAUGHTERS) and Brick (Atticus Shaffer) out the door for school
    every morning is a surely a super-heroic act. Middle aged, middle class
    and living in the middle of the country, this harried wife and working
    mother of three uses her wry wit and sense of humour to try to get her
    family through each day intact. Frankie has a job (not a career) selling
    cars at the town's only surviving car dealer; her husband, Mike
    (Neil Flynn, SCRUBS), is a manager at the local quarry. In between
    juggling shifts and picking up fast food dinners eaten in front of the
    TV, Frankie and Mike raise their kids with love and solid Midwestern
    practicality.

    Cast: Multiple Emmy Award-winner Patricia Heaton (EVERYBODY LOVES
    RAYMOND) as Frankie; Neil Flynn (SCRUBS) as Mike; Eden Sher (SONS AND
    DAUGHTERS) as Sue; Atticus Shaffer as Brick; Charlie McDermott as Axl.

    I MET YOUR MOTHER)

    Production Company: Warner Bros. Television

    THE VAMPIRE DIARIES (CTV)
    -------------------------
    Starring Toronto's Nina Dobrev (DEGRASSI: THE NEXT GENERATION), THE
    VAMPIRE DIARIES is based on the similarly named novels, written by
    LJ Smith, about two undead brothers. It's Elena's (Dobrev) first day back
    at Mystic Falls High School since the tragic death of her parents. Along
    with her Aunt Jenna (Sara Canning), Elena tries her best to look after
    her troubled younger brother, Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen, EVERWOOD), and
    salvage what family they have left. The first day is already shaping up
    to be a struggle for Elena until she meets the mysterious new kid at
    school, Stefan (Paul Wesley, AMERICAN DREAMS). What Elena doesn't know is
    that Stefan is a vampire, constantly resisting the urge to taste her
    blood. As their undeniable connection grows deeper, Stefan's dangerous
    older brother, Damon (Ian Somerhalder, LOST), shows up to wreak havoc on
    the town of Mystic Falls - and claim Elena for himself.

    Cast: Nina Dobrev as (DEGRASSI: THE NEXT GENERATION) as Elena;
    Paul Wesley (AMERICAN DREAMS) as Stefan; Ian Somerhalder (LOST) as Damon;

    THE BEAUTIFUL LIFE ('A')
    ------------------------
    From the cutting-edge network that brought us GOSSIP GIRL and executive
    producer Ashton Kutcher comes a new fashionable drama that explores the
    catwalks and catfights that come with fleeting fame. Two teenaged models
    are about to discover the cut-throat world of high fashion for themselves
    - Raina Collins (Sara Paxton, SUMMERLAND), a stunning beauty with a
    secret past, and Chris Andrews (Ben Hollingsworth), a strikingly handsome
    Iowa farm boy. When Raina makes an unforgettable impression at a show
    introducing the new line from designer Zac Posen, she steals the
    spotlight from her friend Sonja (Mischa Barton, THE O.C.) who is
    desperate to reclaim her standing as the reigning supermodel after being
    out of the country for mysterious reasons. Sonja keeps the reasons for
    her disappearance from the other models and agent Claudia (Elle
    Macpherson, FRIENDS), who was left to cover for her while she was away.
    While Raina and Sonja live at the top of the fashion food chain, Chris is
    starting at the bottom. Raina brings Chris to the "models' residence"
    where she lives along with other young hopefuls, including Marissa
    Delfina (Ashley Madekwe), Issac (Corbin Bleu, High School Musical) and
    the current alpha-male-model known as Kai (Nico Tortorella). With all the
    drama that comes with the industry, Chris is left to question whether he
    can survive in this world of dangerous excess and fleeting fame.

    Cast: Mischa Barton (THE O.C.) as Sonja; Elle Macpherson (FRIENDS) as
    Claudia; Ben Hollingsworth as Chris; Ashley Madekwe as Marissa; Nico

    EASTWICK ('A')

    witches, Roxie (Rebecca Romijn, UGLY BETTY), Kat (Jaime Ray Newman,
    GENERAL HOSPITAL) and Joanna (Lindsay Price, LIPSTICK JUNGLE), whose
    powers are awakened when a mysterious man (Canadian Paul Gross, Men With
    Brooms) moves to town. The three women form an unlikely bond when a
    mysterious and wealthy stranger arrives on the scene and their lives take
    on new and magical dimensions. An old adage echoes throughout Eastwick
    and beyond: be careful what you wish for. With magic at play in front and
    behind the cameras, EASTWICK is produced and directed by Emmy Award-
    winning David Nutter (THE MENTALIST, WITHOUT A TRACE, THE X-FILES, BAND
    OF BROTHERS) who has had a record 15 pilots he's directed picked up for
