Show Guide: 'Falcon'

Synopsis: Javier Falcón is a Chief Inspector in the Seville police, a brilliant detective whose personal and professional life is compromised by dark secrets from the past in this ambitious and complex new series. Falcón himself is a complex and layered character, with a psychological darkness which mirrors the brutal darkness which surrounds him in Seville.  An innately sexual and charismatic character, Falcón is forceful and focussed, happy to ignore the distinction between the law and criminals and embrace his own flaws and addictions when he has stuff.

The hidden side of Falcón’s personality is matched by the darker, more visceral side of Seville; a dark and brutal place which lurks behind the creative and vibrant façade of the city. Set and filmed in and around Seville, the drama will show viewers a side to the city which they are unlikely to have seen before; Falcón’s Seville is shadowy, atmospheric but with a dynamic vibrancy and life.

Show Guide: 'The Family Tree'

Synopsis: Annie Benjamin (Anne Archer) a divorced woman with three children, who worked part-time selling real estate, meets and then marries Kevin Nichols (Frank Converse); a divorced owner of a lumber company with grown children of his own.

On Kevin's side of the family, he has, besides his teenaged son Jake (James Spader), a grown daughter, Molly Tanner (Ann Dusenberry), who herself was already married. Jake lives with his mother, Elizabeth (Joanna Cassidy); and Annie's children are still very close to their father, Dr. David Benjamin (Alan Feinstein).

The boys of Christmas automotive are back, with faster cars and bigger appetites. These large-and-in-charge car junkies of Christmas Automotive continue to boost business by hunting down left-for-dead cars and bringing them back to life.

Owned and operated by Tommy Christmas, Christmas Automotive helps car owners with their need for speed. With business bigger than ever before, the gang is moving to a larger shop to keep up with demand.

Fixing up old cars is always challenging, but the faster the car, the fatter the pay check.

In the season premiere, Tommy and crew transform a ‘69 Fairlane into a Cobra Fairlane for a client whose dad passed away while they were building it.
