From the producers of Friday Night Lights and Parenthood, and of the Tony® Award-winning Broadway musical Hamilton, comes a heartening new drama about finding inspiration in unexpected places. When dedicated teacher and family man Lou Mazzuchelli (Josh Radnor) sheds his own self-doubt and takes over the school’s lackluster theatre department, he galvanises not only the faculty and students, but the entire working-class town. The series also stars Academy Award® nominee, Rosie Perez, and Auli’I Cravalho, fresh from her title role in Disney’s Moana. Rise is inspired by a true story. Episodes/ length: 10x60 mins

Reverie
Reverie is a grounded new thriller that follows Mara Kint (Sarah Shahi), a former hostage negotiator and expert on human behaviour who became a college professor after facing an unimaginable personal tragedy. But when she’s brought in to save ordinary people who have lost themselves in a highly advanced virtual-reality programme in which you can literally live your dreams, she finds that in saving others, she may actually have discovered a way to save herself. The cast also includes Dennis Haysbert, Jessica Lu, Sendhil Ramamurthy and Kathryn Morris. Episodes/ length: 10x60 mins
