New Show Descriptions
"Jericho" (Wednesdays at 7 PM)
Premise: (From CBS's press release) This is a drama about what happens when a nuclear mushroom cloud suddenly appears on the horizon, plunging the residents of a small, peaceful Kansas town into chaos, leaving them completely isolated and wondering if they're the only Americans left alive. Fear of the
unknown propels Jericho into social, psychological, and physical mayhem when all communication and power is shut down. The town starts to come apart at the seams as terror, anger, and confusion bring out the very worst in some residents. But in this time of crisis, as sensible people become paranoid, personal agendas take over and well-kept secrets threaten to be revealed,
some people will find an inner strength they never knew they had and the most unlikely heroes will emerge.
"Shark" (Thursdays at 9 PM)
Premise: (From CBS's press release) This show stars multiple Academy Award nominee and Emmy Award winner James Woods as Sebastian Stark, a charismatic, supremely self-confident defense attorney who, after a shocking outcome in one of his cases and a personal epiphany, brings his cutthroat tactics to the
prosecutor's office. As the head of the Los Angeles District Attorney's High Profile Crime Unit, Stark works for Jessica Devlin (Jeri Ryan), the ambitious and accomplished D.A. who despises his ruthless strategies. Devlin teams him with a group of young prosecutors who are about to have the learning experience of a lifetime because, though Stark is seeking to redeem
himself, he has no intention of cooling his underhanded approach to cases just because he's now working for the "good guys."
"Smith" (Tuesdays at 9 PM)
Premise: (From CBS's press release) This show stars Emmy Award winner Ray Liotta as a criminal mastermind in a drama about a close-knit crew of career criminals who plot and execute intricate and ingenious high-stakes heists across the country. Though Bobby Stevens (Liotta) appears to be a regular family
man with a nine-to-five job, he's actually an expert thief who is seeking just two or three more big jobs so he can finally leave the business for a comfortable, lawful lifestyle with his wife, Hope (Academy Award nominee Virginia Madsen.) Bobby's second family, his core band of partners, each bring their own areas of expertise to pulling off the biggest and most sophisticated
armed robberies. The FBI is determined to catch the team but is most interested in capturing "Smith," the crew's mysterious leader and the brains behind the entire operation. It remains to be seen whether Bobby will be able to extricate himself in time from the scores that give him such a rush, or if his retirement will be a forced one...behind bars.

After two decades apart for most of them, some are eager to show off, some want to rekindle old crushes and others just want to satisfy their curiosity. Whatever the case, their lives
will intersect from this point forward, sharing childhood memories and dealing with adult issues...career, relationships, and the general direction or misdirection life will take them.
