Set in a post-Jax Teller world, Ezekiel “EZ” Reyes (JD Pardo, Revolution, The Twilight Saga) is fresh out of prison and a prospect in the Mayans M.C. charter on the Cali/Mexi border. Now, EZ must carve out his new identity in a town where he was once the golden boy with the American Dream in his grasp.

Mr Inbetween (s): Tuesdays at 11 p.m. ET/PT, beginning September 25
6-part, 30-minute scripted dramedy series
Juggling a new relationship, parental responsibilities, friendship, and a sick brother while earning a living would be difficult for anyone, but it’s particularly difficult when you’re a hitman. Ray Shoesmith (newcomer Scott Ryan) “takes care of people” – collecting debts, relieving them of drugs and guns, and often taking care of them on a permanent basis. Ray demands respect and does not tolerate anyone who doesn’t live up to his very strong and very clear code of ethics. The few he trusts – daughter Brittany (newcomer Chika Yasumura), brother Bruce (Nicholas Cassim, Home and Away) and best friend Gary (Justin Rosniak, War Machine) – he’ll do anything for, so when Gary is set up by his own brother-in-law, Ray rips the lid off a Pandora’s box of inter-gang conflict and personal retributions. As a series of very unfortunate, very bloody, and darkly funny events play out, the bodies pile up, and Ray must avoid being one of them.

Even without Dennis, the gang has its hands full as Charlie hopes to have a child with “The Waitress,” (Mary Elizabeth Ellis); Mac sets out to understand his newfound sexuality; Dee takes feminism to new heights; and Frank goes to great lengths for the gang to experience the greatest moment in Philadelphia sports history – an Eagles Super Bowl victory.
