The cast of Imaginary Mary on ABC at the 2017 TCAs - Rachel Dratch, Jenna Elfman and Stephen Schneider

Imaginary Mary

I loved this show from start to finish.  Imaginary Mary was one of two live action/animated hybrids from the 2016-2017 primetime broadcast television season and although neither got renewed, they both had a lot of heart.  Funny, sweet, both family

Katie and Greg of "Great News" are definitely not falling for each other as he wears tie on face wielding a 4ft fluorescent tube, as she grabs his collar

Great News

Truth and Iliza

Leighton Meester with flowy hair and 1920s garb in FOX's "Making History" Al Capone episodes 5 and 6
