"Shameless"
Premieres Sunday, January 11 at 9:00 PM ET/PT on Showtime
 
        Oscar®-nominated William H. Macy and Emmy Rossum star in this fiercely engaging and fearlessly twisted series. Chicagoan Frank Gallagher is the proud single dad of six smart, industrious, independent kids, who without him would be...perhaps better off. When Frank's not at the bar spending what little money they have, he's passed out on the floor. But the kids have found ways to grow up in spite of him. They may not be like any family you know, but they make no apologies for being exactly who they are.
         Recently garnering three Emmy Award nominations in the comedy category, Shameless season five finds the Gallaghers dealing with both the upside and downside of personal and urban renewal.  As their neighborhood begins a move towards gentrifying, the Gallagher clan begins to reconcile their chaotic past in the hopes of building a better future. Dermot Mulroney, Steve Kazee and Sasha Alexander will guest star.  The series stars Macy and Rossum, along with Ethan Cutkosky, Emily Bergl, and special guest star Joan Cusack.
