SIGHT UNSEEN follows Tess Avery (Dolly Lewis), a top homicide detective who is forced to quit the job she loves after an incident in the field nearly results in her partner, Jake Campbell (Daniel Gillies, “The Vampire Diaries”), being killed, leading to her ultimately being diagnosed as clinically blind. Haunted by the cases she left behind and reluctant to accept help, or even her own diagnosis, Tess turns to an assistance app to connect with a professional seeing-eye guide 3,000 miles away. An unorthodox partner in Tess’ ear, Sunny Patel (Agam Darshi, “DMZ”), guides her via a micro-camera, allowing Tess to continue doing what she does best: solving cases. An agoraphobic who leaves her apartment only through the eyes of her clients, Sunny is also hiding a secret of her own – a violent event from her past she hopes to one day solve. Steering Tess through life’s obstacles and crimes – the duo challenge preconceptions about ability, trust, and where to draw the line. Inspired by one of the series co-creators’ recurring experiences with sight loss, Tess and Sunny bring a fresh perspective and unexpected thrills to the crime solving genre.

SIGHT UNSEEN is produced by Blink49 Studios, a FIFTH SEASON backed company, and Front Street Pictures in association with Sisters Troubetzkoy Productions and The CW for commissioning broadcaster Bell Media’s CTV in Canada with the financial participation of the Bell Fund. In addition to directing several episodes including the pilot, John Fawcett serves as executive producer alongside co-showrunners Karen Troubetzkoy and Nikolijne Troubetzkoy, Blink49’s John Morayniss, Carolyn Newman and Virginia Rankin, Front Street Pictures’ Charles Cooper and writers Derek Schreyer and Russ Cochrane as well as Ryan Knighton serving as co-executive producer. International distribution is handled by FIFTH SEASON.


In this spinoff of “FBoy Island,” three men on a tropical island are joined by 24 women for a chance to fall in love and win $100,000. Half of the women are looking for love, but the other half are just there to deceive the men and win the cold hard cash. Will the men be able to separate the lovers from the liars in order to win love AND money?

LOVERS AND LIARS is produced by STXtelevision. The series was created by Elan Gale (“The Bachelor” franchise), who is executive producing for TheYearOfElan Productions alongside Jason Goldberg for STXtelevision. Nikki Glaser serves as host and executive producer. Bill Dixon and Audrey Smith serve as executive producers and showrunners. The series is directed by Michael Shea.


In PATTI STANGER: THE MATCHMAKER, the ultimate love guru, Patti Stanger, is back and doing the things she does best: helping people find love by working with them in-person and teaching them the real tools and rules to become the most eligible versions of themselves. But this time, Patti has a new partner – “The Bachelor” alum Nick Viall is joining her to tackle some of her most challenging clients yet. No case is off limits or too difficult for Patti and Nick to crack. Each episode will feature two clients desperate to find love, with Patti and Nick pushing them to face their fears, identify their emotional core, and in the end, emerge ready to find the one. These are all real dates, real people, real matches…and real love!

From The Intellectual Property Corporation (a part of Sony Pictures Television), Mainstay Entertainment, and Patti Stanger Productions, PATTI STANGER: THE MATCHMAKER is executive produced by Eli Holzman, Aaron Saidman, Patti Stanger, and Rob Lee, with Thomas Kelly serving as showrunner and executive producer.
