LUCKY DOG
 
Emmy Award-winning host and animal trainer Brandon McMillan works with animal shelters across the U.S. to save one dog at a time, as he rescues lonely, unwanted dogs living without hope. Then, back at Brandon’s training facility known as the Lucky Dog Ranch, he goes to work on the seemingly impossible task of turning the frightened pooches into perfect pets. “From hopeless to a home” is Brandon’s mission, which he brings to life in each episode as a lucky family adopts an even luckier dog. Brandon McMillan received his second Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Host in a Lifestyle/Travel/Children’s or Family Viewing Program Award in 2018, and LUCKY DOG received a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Special Class Series in 2016

THE INSPECTORS
 
THE INSPECTORS is a scripted dramatic series set in Washington, D.C., inspired by compelling real cases handled by the United States Postal Inspection Service. In the series, Preston Wainwright (Bret Green), a determined young man who is thriving after being paralyzed in a car accident, works as an intern assisting his U.S. postal inspector mom, Amanda (Daytime Emmy Award winner Jessica Lundy), to solve crimes that deal with everything from internet scams, identity and mail theft, to consumer fraud. In season four, Preston’s dreams of walking again one day have taken a huge step toward reality. But the hard part has just begun, and his recovery becomes as mental as it is physical. Also, Preston and his friends, Veronica (Erica-Marie Sanchez) and Noah (Harrison Knight), begin their senior year at Jamestown University and start to think about life after college. From their careers to their relationships, they will face major choices that will shape their destinies. THE INSPECTORS strives to educate young people about making the right choices in their daily lives, encourages open communication between teens and parents, and includes positive messaging regarding living with disabilities, overcoming challenges, beating the odds and the power of perseverance. Terry Serpico also stars. The United States Postal Inspection Service, the nation’s oldest federal law enforcement agency, serves as the show’s official programming resource.
 
PET VET DREAM TEAM
 
PET VET DREAM TEAM follows talented veterinarians Dr. Lisa Chimes and Dr. Andrew Marchevsky of the Small Animal Specialist Hospital (SASH), where they deal with compelling cases of ailing and injured pets. Viewers also see exotic animal expert Tim Faulkner in action at the Australian Reptile Park, where he cares for animals big and small, from crocodiles to koalas. Together, these three authorities race to cure their furry and feathered charges – educating viewers on a range of medical procedures and zoological practices along the way. As viewers catch a behind-the-scenes look at the veterinary profession, they also learn responsibility and empathy for animals of all kinds through the passionate work of the PET VET DREAM TEAM.
