“The Son” is an epic family saga spanning three
generations and 150 years of the McCullough family. The
series traces the transformation of Eli McCullough
(Brosnan), the charismatic family patriarch, from
good-natured innocent to calculating killer. He loses
everything on the wild frontier, setting him on the path to
building a ranching-and-oil dynasty of unsurpassed wealth
and privilege. Eli’s eldest son Pete (Henry Garrett), has
grown up in his father’s shadow and struggles to make him
proud while forging his own identity. Pete’s strong-willed
daughter, Jeannie (Sydney Lucas) idolizes her grandfather
and despite being raised in a male-dominated world, rejects
her fate of existing solely to marry and bear children.
Eli’s ruthlessness pits him against his wealthy Spanish
neighbor, Pedro Garcia (Carlos Bardem) and his quest for
power triggers consequences that span generations. Shared
through a series of flashbacks, “The Son” pulls viewers into
the world of young Eli McCullough (Jacob Lofland) and his
father figure, Comanche war chief, Toshaway (Zahn McClarnon)
and deftly explores the McCullough’s rise to become one the
most powerful family dynasties in Texas.
Season one of
“The Son” was shot on-location in Austin, Texas.

Productions to Serve as Studio
NEW YORK – May 5, 2015 – Adding to its growing roster of
major productions featuring science fiction’s most acclaimed
franchises, Syfy is reuniting with Emmy® Award-winning
Amblin Television to develop a scripted series based on
Aldous Huxley’s classic novel Brave New World.
Syfy and Amblin previously collaborated on Steven Spielberg
Presents: Taken, which won a 2003 Emmy® for Best Miniseries,
as well as nominations in six other categories.
Brave New World is set in a world without poverty, war or
disease. In this world, humans are given mind-altering
drugs, free sex and rampant consumerism are the order of the
day, and people no longer reproduce but are genetically
engineered in “hatcheries.” Those who won’t conform are
forced onto “reservations” – until one of these “savages”
challenges the system, threatening the entire social order.
First published in 1932, Brave New World was ranked fifth
among the 100 best English language novels of the 20th
Century by Modern Library.
Said Dave Howe, President, Syfy & Chiller: “Brave New World
is one of the most influential genre classics of all time.
Its provocative vision of a future gone awry remains as
powerful and as timeless as ever. Promising to be a

PRODUCTIONS’ CRITICALLY-ACCLAIMED ‘PLAYING HOUSE’ RETURNS TO
USA NETWORK FOR THIRD SEASON
PLAYING HOUSE Doubled its VOD Audience in Season Two with
Innovative Windowing Model
UNIVERSAL CITY – Jan. 14, 2016 – Universal Cable
Productions’ critically-acclaimed PLAYING HOUSE will return
to USA Network for a third season. The comedy is from
Universal Cable Productions and is executive produced by
series’ stars Jessica St. Clair and Lennon Parham.
"Not only is this a show for the ages, PLAYING HOUSE also
represents a whole new way of financing production with its
unique partnership of ad sales, Comcast, studio and
network," said Jeff Wachtel, President and Chief Content
Officer, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment.
“Year-over-year we have seen PLAYING HOUSE attract critical
acclaim and a loyal fan base that continues to grow,” said
Jackie de Crinis, Executive Vice President Original
Programming, USA Network, “The unique relationship between
Jessica and Lennon translates into a heart-warming comedy
about friendship and we are delighted to have it for a third
Last season, Comcast and NBCUniversal introduced a new
distribution model which allowed viewers to watch every
episode of PLAYING HOUSE on Video-On-Demand (VOD) before it
aired on USA Network. This not only gave the super fans
early access to new episodes, but drove new viewers to the
series. As a result, PLAYING HOUSE doubled its VOD audience
from season one to season two and, based on the broad
partnership with Comcast, the show was #3 on the XFINITY on
Demand platform during its premiere month in August, beating
all other broadcast and basic cable offerings.
The VOD episodes offered limited commercial breaks with
custom branded spots, which were co-created by, and
featured, St. Clair and Lennon. This new model offered the
series’ three signature sponsors -- Samsung, Toyota and
Comcast -- premium placement across millions of
multiplatform-connected homes and engaged the highly
passionate community of fans among USA Network subscribers
(USA Now apps, web, mobile, connected TV) as well as
distribution partners’ VOD and TV Everywhere platforms. The
PLAYING HOUSE sponsorship enhanced campaign messaging for
all three sponsors and brand favorability increased by as
much at 15% among VOD viewers.
