Thanks to the addition of Thursday Night Football to its schedule this coming fall, FOX canceled more than a normal amount of series this year, including Brooklyn Nine-Nine (which moves to NBC), The Last Man on Earth, The Mick, Lucifer, The Exorcist and The New Girl.
It is adding the dramas The Passage and Proven Innocent; the reboot of the
Tim Allen comedy Last Man Standing (formerly on ABC); two new comedies The Cool Kids and Rel; a live musical production of Rent; and a brand-new Cosmos installment, Cosmos: Possible Worlds.
“This year, we launched four of the Top 10 new shows on broadcast, which led to a very strong roster of young series returning for their sophomore seasons. That gives us tremendous momentum heading into the fall,” said
Dana Walden and
Gary Newman, Chairmen and CEOs, Fox Television Group. “With our increased investment in football, we’re going to use the powerful platform of the NFL to launch our new comedies. We’ll then take some big swings with dramas at midseason, which is a proven strategy for FOX.”
Returning series include 9-1-1, The Resident, The Gifted, Lethal Weapon, Empire, Star, Hell’s Kitchen, The Simpsons, Bob’s Burgers, and Family Guy.
Still in limbo are L.A. to Vegas and Ghosted. “We haven’t made a decision,” Walden said.
New Comedy Series
The Cool Kids is a multi-camera comedy about a rag-tag group of friends living in a retirement community who are willing to break every rule in order to have fun — because, at their age, what do they really have to lose? Hank (
David Alan Grier) is the leader of this motley crew, a gruff, opinionated, 21st century Archie Bunker who will go to any lengths to have a good time. His loyal, but less than helpful, friends include Charlie (
Martin Mull), a bumbling storyteller who constantly goes off on tangents about some bizarre, barely believable episode from his life; and Sid (
Leslie Jordan), a naysaying, pill-popping hypochondriac who shoots down every scheme, but still gets roped in. Complicating matters is Margaret (
Vicki Lawrence), a brash, confident woman who forces her way into their group and refuses to leave because she’s not going to take crap from anyone – especially not these three. But what unites them all is their shared belief that they’re not done yet – not by a long shot. Growing old with dignity is for chumps. Our self-proclaimed “cool kids” are determined to make the third act of the lives the craziest one yet.
Last Man Standing
A fan-favorite for six seasons, Last Man Standing stars
Tim Allen as Mike Baxter, a married father of three girls, who tries to maintain his manliness in a world increasingly dominated by women.
Additional cast includes
Christoph Sanders and
Based on the life of
Lil Rel Howery, Rel is a multi-camera comedy starring Howery as a loving husband and father living on the West Side of Chicago, who finds out his wife is having an affair. And not just any affair. An affair with Rel’s own barber. Quite easily the worst person for your wife to sleep with, because as hard it is to find a good spouse, it’s even harder to find a reliable barber. Plus, with the barbershop being one of the epicenters of neighborhood gossip, Rel finds his embarrassing business is known by everyone, including the Pastor (also played by Howery), before Rel can even process the emotions himself.
Offering Rel support – that is, when they themselves aren’t butting heads – are Rel’s tough-talking, no-B.S. best friend, Brittany (
Jess “Hilarious” Moore), and his recently out-of-jail younger brother, Nat (
Jordan L. Jones), as well as Rel’s prideful Dad (
Sinbad ), who perhaps has taken the barber news even harder than Rel. After his beloved kids move to Cleveland with their mom, Rel must begin the difficult task of rebuilding his life as a long-distance dad. He also jumps back into the dating pool — and often finds himself the victim of his own well-intentioned hubris. But, ever the optimist, he continues his search for love, respect…and a new barber.
New Drama Series
The Passage (Midseason)
Based on author
Justin Cronin’s best-selling trilogy of the same name, The Passage focuses on Project Noah, a secret medical facility where scientists are experimenting with a dangerous virus that could lead to the cure for all disease, but also carries the potential to wipe out the human race. When a young girl, Amy Bellafonte (
Saniyya Sidney) is chosen to be a test subject, Federal Agent Brad Wolgast (
Mark-Paul Gosselaar) is the man who is tasked with bringing her to Project Noah. Ultimately, however, Wolgast becomes her surrogate father, as he tries to protect her at any cost.
Brad and Amy’s journey will force them to confront Project Noah’s lead scientist, Major Nichole Sykes (
Caroline Chikezie), and the hardened ex-CIA operative in charge of operations, Clark Richards (
Vincent Piazza), whom Brad trained. It likewise brings them face-to-face with a dangerous new race of beings confined within the walls of Project Noah, including former scientist Tim Fanning (
Jamie McShane) and death-row inmate Shauna Babcock (
In seeking out any allies he can find, Brad also turns to his former wife, Dr. Lila Kyle (
Emmanuelle Chriqui), for help. But as Project Noah’s scientists hone in on a cure that could save humanity, these new beings begin to test their own powers, inching one step closer to an escape that could lead to an unimaginable apocalypse.
Proven Innocent (Midseason)
Proven Innocent follows an underdog criminal defense firm led by Madeline Scott (
Rachelle Lefevre), a fierce and uncompromising lawyer with a hunger for justice. There is no one who understands the power of setting an innocent person free more than Madeline. At age 18, she was wrongfully convicted, along with her brother, Levi (
Riley Smith), in a sensational murder case that made her an infamous media obsession, a household name and a national cause célèbre.
Madeline runs the firm with her partner, Easy Boudreau (
Russell Hornsby), the very lawyer who helped set her free after seven years in prison. Their team also includes investigator Bodie Quick (
Vincent Kartheiser) and communications director Violet Bell (
Nikki M. James), who runs a true-crime podcast that follows each investigation.
While a hero and a victim to some, Madeline’s bold and bullish tactics earn her a number of enemies – especially Gore Bellows (
Brian d’Arcy James), the prosecutor who initially put her away and still believes in her guilt. Despite Bellows’ ceaseless quest to see her behind bars again, Madeline will continue to defend others, even as she fights to maintain her innocence and searches for the real killer in her own case.
New Musical Production
The live musical production of the groundbreaking, Tony Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical Rent will come to FOX on Sunday, Jan. 27, 2019. A re-imagining of Puccini’s La Bohème, and set in New York City’s gritty East Village, Rent tells the unforgettable story of seven artists struggling to follow their dreams during a time of great social and political turmoil. Winner of four Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize, writer/composer
Jonathan Larson’s tour de force continues to offer an inspiring message of hope and friendship.
