Brand New Series:

The Blacklist - Season 1 (Tuesdays at 20h30 - M-Net channel 101): The world’s most wanted criminal, Raymond Reddington, mysteriously turns himself into authorities and offers to give up every criminal he has ever worked with.

Devious Maids - Season 1 (Thursdays at 20h00 M-Net Series Showcase channel 113): Murder and mayhem collide in the mansions of Beverly Hills’ wealthiest and most powerful families. Class warfare has never been as fun and dirty as it is in the tiny enclave where the staff are as clever, witty, outrageous and downright devilish as their employers. Whoever holds the dirt holds the power, and before the season is over, illicit affairs will be revealed and deep dark secrets exposed as we learn the sordid details behind a shocking murder of a beloved housemaid. The series was created by Marc Cherry (Desperate Housewives) and is executive produced by Cherry, Sabrina Wind (Desperate Housewives), Eva Longoria (Desperate Housewives), Paul McGuigan (The Fixer), Larry Shuman (Kissing Miranda), David Lonner, John Mass and Televisa USA’s Paul Presburger and Michael Garcia.
