    Watch the Trailers (More Like Pilot Summary) for Fox's New Shows

    [​IMG]

    Fox has released full-length trailers for several other first-year series. The releases were timed to the network's Upfront presentation for advertisers Monday in New York.

    As part of its 2017-18 season, Fox has six dramas on deck, including The Gifted as well as the hourlong space series The Orville from Seth MacFarlane. Fox also has new episodes of The X-Files, the medical drama The Resident starring The Good Wife's Matt Czuchry and Revenge's Emily VanCamp, as well as the Ryan Murphy drama 911, all set to debut midseason.

    The network also has ordered two comedies including the Adam Scott-Craig Robinson half-hour Ghosted and the Will Ferrell-produced L.A. to Vegas.


    THE ORVILLE
    A live-action, one-hour series set 400 years in the future that follows the adventures of The Orville, a mid-level exploratory spaceship, as its crew, both human and alien, face the wonders and dangers of outer space, while also dealing with the familiar, often humorous problems of everyday life.



    THE RESIDENT
    An idealistic young doctor begins his first day under the supervision of a tough, brilliant senior resident who pulls the curtain back on all of the good and evil in modern day medicine. Lives may be saved or lost, but expectations will always be shattered.



    GHOSTED
    A cynical skeptic (Robinson) and a genius "true believer" in the paranormal (Scott) are recruited by The Bureau Underground to look into the rampant "unexplained" activity in Los Angeles — all while uncovering a larger mystery that could threaten the existence of the human race.



    L.A. TO VEGAS
    An ensemble workplace comedy about a group of underdogs trying to find their place in the world, set in the very specific environment of a Friday night flight from Los Angeles to Las Vegas — and the returning flight on Sunday. All characters share the same goal: to come back a winner in the casino of life.



    THE GIFTED
    A suburban couple's ordinary lives are rocked by the sudden discovery that their children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, the family joins up with an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive.

    Looks like fun. Sorta has an "A League of their Own" crossed with Flashdance vibe going.

    Orville looks like something I'd actually want to watch, but since Fox...

    I wonder how much Fox's reputation for cancelling shows affects their overall ratings?

    I know for a fact that I typically won't watch a Fox show, unless I really like the premise, just because I don't want to bother getting invested in something that I can almost guarantee will be cancelled before it's finished.

    AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 5 Moves to Friday with Full 22 Episodes Order

    [​IMG]

    Once Upon a Time and Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. have both been moved to Friday nights on ABC’s fall schedule, the network announced Tuesday morning ahead of their upfronts presentation.

    OUAT will launch at 8 p.m. ET, followed by the debut of new super series Marvel's Inhumans, which will run for eight episodes. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will then launch later in the fall, possibly midseason. Both Once and S.H.I.E.L.D. will still have 22 episode seasons.

    “We’ve turned Friday into more of a destination for our fantasy and science fiction fans,” ABC Chief Channing Dungey told reporters Tuesday morning. “Once Upon a Time and S.H.I.E.L.D.are airing on the same night for the first time, which is giving many fans of both shows what they’ve been asking for for a long time.”

    Once Upon a Time’s sixth season ended Sunday, while Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s finale airs Tuesday night. Marvel’s Inhumans will launch its first two episodes in IMAX on Sept. 1 before debuting on the network three weeks later with exclusive new content.

    Watch the Full-Length Trailers for ABC New Shows for 2017-2018 Season

    ABC has unveiled the full-length trailers for its freshman class of the 2017-18 season. Among the new additions are seven dramas, including the Shonda Rhimes-produced For the People as well as The Good Doctor starring Bates Motel grad Freddie Highmore.

    ABC also has four comedies on tap, including the TV returns of The Office alum Jenna Fischer in Splitting Up Together and former Scrubs star Zach Braff in Alex, Inc., as well as the eight-episode Roseanne reboot.


    FOR THE PEOPLE
    Set in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, aka “The Mother Court,” this new Shondaland drama follows brand-new lawyers working for both the defense and the prosecution handling the most high-profile and high-stakes federal cases in the country — all as their lives intersect in and out of the courtroom.



    TEN DAYS IN THE VALLEY
    Kyra Sedgwick stars as Jane Sadler, an overworked television producer and single mother in the middle of a separation whose life is turned upside down when her young daughter goes missing in the middle of the night. Just like Jane's controversial police TV show, everything is a mystery, everyone has a secret and no one can be trusted.


    THE GOOD DOCTOR
    Shaun Murphy (Highmore), a young surgeon with autism and savant syndrome, relocates from a quiet country life to join a prestigious hospital’s surgical unit. Alone in the world and unable to personally connect with those around him, Shaun uses his extraordinary medical gifts to save lives and challenge the skepticism of his colleagues.


    DECEPTION
    When his career is ruined by scandal, superstar magician Cameron Black (Kingsman's Jack Cutmore-Scott) has only one place to turn to practice his art of deception, influence and illusion — the FBI. Using every trick in the book and inventing new ones, he will help the government catch the world’s most elusive criminals while staging the biggest illusions of his career.


    THE GOSPEL OF KEVIN
    Kevin Finn (Parenthood's Jason Ritter), a cluelessly self-serving person, is on a dangerous path to despair. In a downward spiral, Kevin returns home to stay with his widowed twin sister (Reba's JoAnna Garcia Swisher) and niece. On his first night there, an unlikely celestial being appears to him and presents him with a mission — to save the world.


    THE CROSSING
    Refugees from a war-torn country seek asylum in a small American fishing town, only the country these people are from is America… and the war they are fleeing hasn’t happened yet. As the government tries to uncover the truth behind this mysterious migration, only one thing is certain: The lives of the people here — both the townspeople and these newcomers — will never be the same.


    SPLITTING UP TOGETHER
    Based on the Danish series, the comedy centers on a couple (Fischer and Nashville alum Oliver Hudson) whose marriage is reignited by their divorce.


    THE MAYOR
    Young rapper Courtney Rose (Brandon Micheal Hall) needs his big break. For years, he’s toiled away in a small inner-city apartment, making music in his junk-filled bedroom closet. Tired of waiting for opportunity, Courtney cooks up the publicity stunt of the century: running for mayor of his hometown in California to generate buzz for his music career. Unfortunately for Courtney, his master plan goes wildly awry, ending in the most terrifying of outcomes — an election victory. With the help of his mother (Community alum Yvette Nicole Brown) and friends, including Valentina (Glee grad Lea Michele), Courtney will have to overcome his hubris if he wants to transform the struggling city he loves.


    ALEX, INC.
    Based on the podcast StartUp, Alex Schuman (Braff) is a brilliant radio journalist, husband and father of two who is about to do something crazy — quit his job and start his own company. He quickly discovers it’s going to be a lot harder than he thought.


    ROSEANNE

    NETFLIX TO PRODUCE THE WITCHER TV SERIES
    Share.
    Writer Andrzej Sapkowski will serve as creative consultant.
    BY JOE SKREBELS Netflix will develop and produce a new show based on The Witcher Saga, the series of eight novels by Andrzej Sapkowski that inspired the hugely popular CD Projekt Red RPG games.

    Sapkowski - who does not profit from the game series - will serve as a creative consultant on the series. “I’m thrilled that Netflix will be doing an adaptation of my stories," he explained in a press release, "staying true to the source material and the themes that I have spent over thirty years writing."

    Tomas Baginski - who directed the intro videos for all three Witcher games, as well as the Cyberpunk 2077 teaser trailer - will direct at least one episode per season.




    It's not clear as yet what specific stories the series will follow. Executive producers Sean Daniel and Jason Brown (The Expanse), said: “The Witcher stories follow an unconventional family that comes together to fight for truth in a dangerous world. The characters are original, funny and constantly surprising and we can’t wait to bring them to life at Netflix, the perfect home for innovative storytelling.”

    The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
    The climactic third game in the fantasy RPG series, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a unique combination of a non-linear story and an open world -- a character-driven, non-linear story experience focused on player choice, tactical combat and a rich, living environment.

    Platige Image, a Polish production and visual effects house will co-produce. Executive producers Baginski and Jarek Sawko emphasised that the books' subtexts will not be lost in the adaptation: "There is a moral and intellectual depth in these books which goes beyond genre. It is a story about today and today’s challenges, hidden under a fantasy cover. It is a story about us, about the monster and the hero inside all of our hearts.”

    No release date, casting, or further directorial choices have been revealed at time of writing.

    Supergirl S2xE21

    Since Kara considers Lena Luthor her best friend... why the hell hasn't she told her that she's Supergirl yet? Moreover, I'd be shocked if Lena didn't already know, as Kara isn't the most discreet nor is she the best liar.

    Also, every scene with Cat Grant was horribly cheesy. I didn't realize just how much more I enjoyed the show in the second season than I did the first until she first started talking.

    The President in Air Force One going straight to the alien armada was the stupidest scene of that episode, probably of the season (and there's plenty).

    Lol at the scene where Teri Hatcher was broadcasting to the city that they have nothing to fear and they show people being slaughtered by the alien soldiers.

    Cat Grant was super cheesy but in a begrudgingly entertaining way.

    Cat recognizes James Olsen is really the Guardian instantly due to seeing his eyes but can't figure out Kara is Supergirl.

    Maybe to you, but I wasn't feeling it.

    It was pure cheese.

    I'm pretty sure she knows Kara's Supergirl. She's just playing along with Kara's ruse because she knows it's important to her.

    She did nothing but drop hints in the final episodes of the first season.

    This is pretty interesting, but at the risk of being pessimistic, I think this unfortunately won't live up to expectations.

    The reason "The Witcher" is a hot property is the fact that CD Projekt created this beautiful expansive 3D world, great action sequences (overcoming the bad mechanics/combat system), crafting, Gwent, and probably the most innovative dialogue tree and choices/consequences system ever implemented in a video game.

    The problem with a film/series adapting a popular video game is that it's going to be a stripped version of what made the original title great.

    Yes, Sapkowski's story is a good basis, but if Witcher fans are coming in to get the "full experience," they'll be disappointed (as previous video game adaptations have shown).

    LoTR and GoT exist so have hope, fantasy can be done right be it film or tv show.

    They are not adapting the video games, they are adapting the books.
