In today’s roundup, “Ray Donovan” Season 5 gets a trailer, and Food Network and Cooking Channel announce 13 new series and 25 pilots. 

FIRST LOOKS

Showtime released Season 5 trailer and key art for “Ray Donovan,” which premieres on Sunday, Aug. 6 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Emmy nominee Liev Schreiber, in his role as L.A.’s best professional fixer, brings his attention back to Hollywood and his celebrity fixer firm. This season, Oscar-winner Susan Sarandon is joining the ensemble cast of Paula Malcomson, with Eddie Marsan and Dash Mihok among the returning cast. “Ray Donovan” was created by Ann Biderman and is executive produced by David Hollander, Mark Gordon, Bryan Zuriff, and Lou Fusaro.

DEVELOPMENT

Food Network and Cooking Channel’s summer programming includes 350 premiere hours of traditional shows, along with 13 new series and 25 pilots, which will be rolled out over the second half of the year. Food Network’s schedule will launch new series such as “Dessert Games,” “Guy’s Big Project” (hosted by Guy Fieri), and “I Hart Food.” Also airing are new episodes of “Texas Cake House,” “Chopped Grill Masters,” and “Halloween Baking Championship.” Cooking Channel’s new series includes “Monster Food” and “Late Nite Eats.”

ABC News’s Lincoln Square Productions is developing a crime documentary series, “The 4%,” with Viola Davis, Julius Tennon’s JuVee Productions, and XCON Productions for ABC. The six-part true crime series explores the cases of two death row convicts who might be innocent. The National Academy of Sciences estimates as many as four percent of the people on death row are innocent. The investigative documentary unpacks the facts of the case on both sides to determine if convicts might not be guilty.
