  • BEAST MODE (Drama) - Written by David Schneiderman. Executive produced by Schneiderman, Stefanie Huie, Charles D. King, Kim Roth and Poppy Hanks. Produced by Ann Wolfe. Produced by Studio T and MACRO. Logline: Inspired by the life of legendary boxing trainer Ann Wolfe, it tells the story of a brilliant-yet-damaged woman with a "kill or be killed" mentality. While those qualities make her a great trainer, they tend to cause problems in the rest of her life.
  • CONSTANCE (Drama) - Starring Elisabeth Shue (Leaving Las Vegas, CSI). Written by KC Perry. Directed by Jesse Peretz. Executive produced by Perry, Peretz, Shue, Robert Downey Jr., Susan Downey, Amanda Burrell, Bill Dubuque, Tom Lesinski and Jenna Santoianni. Produced by Studio T, Sonar Entertainment and Team Downey. Logline: A fun, darkly humorous veneer-stripping story about one woman's refusal to fade into obsolescence. It follows former beauty queen turned small town bureaucrat, Constance Young (Shue), whose life is thrown into turmoil after her husband's mysterious death. Realizing she and her family are on the verge of financial ruin, she turns to cooking the books at City Hall, while simultaneously trying to reinvent herself through the hyper-competitive world of direct-sales cosmetics.
