MID-SEASON – NEW COMEDY
LA to Vegas (s): Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT (check local listings) beginning January 2
Boarding passes, please. Welcome to Jackpot Airlines, a budget carrier whose roundtrip junket flight from LA to Vegas, and back again, is filled with dreamers looking for that big score. Starring Dylan McDermott (American Horror Story), Ed Weeks (The Mindy Project), and Kim Matula ( The Bold and the Beautiful), the series follows this group of underdogs as they eventually go from being strangers on an airplane, to an unconventional family from Friday to Sunday – whether they like it or not.
MID-SEASON – NEW DRAMA
The Resident (s): Series premiere on a special night and time, Sunday, Jan. 21 at 10 p.m. ET/PT; moves to its regular time slot Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT (check local listings) beginning January 22
An idealistic young doctor (Manish Dayal, The Hundred-Foot Journey ) begins his first day eager to save lives. Under the supervision of a brilliant but unconventional senior resident (Matt Czuchry, The Good Wife), the young doctor soon discovers his chosen profession is not what he imagined and that ethical lines are often blurred. The once-optimistic young doctor soon discovers that the practice of medicine is a business, like any other, and realizes that not all patients are angels and not all doctors are gods.
