“Sam Esmail has captured and distilled our ongoing cultural conversation about identity, privacy, value and self-worth,” said Jeff Wachtel, President and Chief Content Officer, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment.  “We are all talking about the central themes of Mr. Robot – Sam has just done it in a completely original and uniquely compelling way.”

MR. ROBOT won over audiences at this year’s South By Southwest Festival in March, winning the coveted audience award in the Episodics category.  The series was also named an official selection of the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival in April.

Edgy Thriller 'Guilt' Lands At ABC Family




ABC Family works to double its original programming over the next four years, the network has greenlit pilot production on a new one-hour drama series "Guilt"

This announcement comes on the heels of the network ordering pilots for scripted dramas “Stay,” the supernatural drama “Beyond” and scripted comedy “Gorgeous Morons.”  

‘Guilt’ is a sophisticated, sexy and suspenseful crime epic that will have audiences captivated week-to-week,” said Karey Burke, Executive Vice President, Programming and Development, ABC Family. 


“Guilt” is an edgy, soapy thriller that revolves around an American in London who becomes the prime suspect in the savage murder of her roommate. As the investigation unfolds, the viewers will question whether she's a naive, young girl whose poor decisions are being magnified under the ruthless glare of the British tabloids, or whether she's a sociopath who brutally murdered her friend. Even her own sister, who comes to London to defend her, will question how well she really knows her little sister as more and more ugly truths come out. This mystery will twist through all layers of London society -- from a posh, but depraved, sex club all the way up to the Royal Family itself. “Guilt” is written, created and executive-produced by Kathryn Price (“The Game Plan”) and Nichole Millard (“The Game Plan”). Steve McPherson will serve as executive producer. “Guilt” is a co-production of Sea to Sky Entertainment (the joint venture between Lionsgate Television and Thunderbird Films) and BV Family Productions in association with ABC Family.
