A Gifted Man
Synopsis: "A Gifted Man" is a drama about a brilliant, charismatic surgeon whose life changes forever when his deceased ex-wife begins teaching him the meaning of life from the "hereafter." Michael Holt is an exceptional doctor who lives a materialistic life of luxury thanks to his work-obsessed career and powerful and wealthy patients; however, Michael's ordered world is rocked when his ex-wife, Anna, an idealistic free-clinic doctor and the love of his life, mysteriously appears to him. In an attempt to go back to his "normal" life, Michael visits Anton, a carpenter who moonlights as a shaman, to try and extract Anna's spirit from his body, but when Anna reappears and asks Michael to help keep her clinic running, he realizes she needs him more now then ever.  Curious about Michael's sudden change in behavior is his efficient assistant, Rita, who works tirelessly to facilitate his schedule in order to accommodate his added responsibilities at the clinic. Touched by those in need and accepting of Anna's compassionate "presence," Michael's attitude toward serving the rich and poor is turned upside down, and he begins to see that there's room in his life for everyone.

Show Guide: 'A.U.S.A'

Scott FoleySynopsis: From three-time Emmy award winning executive producer Richard Appel ("The Simpsons," "King of the Hill") comes this footloose legal comedy about a new class of idealistic but all-too-human Assistant United States Attorneys who struggle to make their way in their personal lives while making a difference in the cases they prosecute every day in New York City.

Adam Sullivan (Scott Foley, "Felicity") is a promising young A.U.S.A. whose intelligence is bound with a gullible nature that presents an uphill battle in his pursuit of both career and romantic success. At work, he must argue cases against Susan Rakoff (Amanda Detmer, "The Majestic"), a beautiful and savvy public defender who regards the A.U.S.A.s as enemies of the people. Adam is also challenged by his reluctant supervisor Geoffrey Laurence (Peter Jacobson, "*61") and a wide-eyed paralegal Wally (John Ross Bowie, "Road Trip"), whose social ineptitude is matched only by his newfound devotion to Adam.

Working alongside Adam as an Assistant U.S. Attorney is Ana Rivera (Ana Ortiz, NBC’s "Kristin"), a former cop with the street experience to compensate for Adam’s occasional naïveté. Also in Adam’s life is his roommate Owen Harper (Eddie McClintock, "Stark Raving Mad"), a trusted friend who reminds Adam of the lighter side of life outside the world of federal prosecution.
