In “Atlanta Robbin’ Season,” two cousins (Donald Glover and Brian Tyree Henry) work through the Atlanta music scene in order to better their lives and the lives of their families.

Inspired by actual events, “Trust” delves into the trials of the Getty family, beginning in 1973 with the kidnapping of John Paul Getty III (Harris Dickinson) by the Italian mafia. His grandfather, J. Paul Getty Sr. (Donald Sutherland), refuses to pay the ransom, leaving his mother, Gail Getty (Hilary Swank), to negotiate with the increasingly desperate kidnappers. The cast also includes Brendan Fraser, Anna Chancellor, Norbert Leo Butz, Charlotte Riley and Luca Marinelli. Simon Beaufoy created “Trust” and serves as executive producer alongside Danny Boyle (who also directed the first three episodes) and Christian Colson. The show is produced by FX Productions, Cloud Eight Films, Decibal Films and Snicket Films Limited.

The sixth and final season of “The Americans,” a period drama about the complex marriage of two KGB spies posing as Americans, stars Matthew Rhys and Keri Russell, along with Holly Taylor and Noah Emmerich. “The Americans” was created by Joe Weisberg who serves as executive producer alongside Joel Fields. Graham Yost, Chris Long, Stephen Schiff and Mary Rae Thewlis are also executive producers, along with Amblin Television heads Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank. “The Americans” is produced by Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions.
