The Fall TV Season presentations for all the new network shows take place this week with the second announced today. Here’s a full breakdown of which concepts have made the final list over on FOX.
With Disney recently acquiring 20th Century Fox Television which produces much of the network’s line-up, FOX is shaking things up. Especially on the comedy front, there’s a whole bunch of cancellations and shifting about meaning that the network will have no live-action comedies on it this Fall – including “Last Man Standing” which is being held until mid-season.
In addition, they’ve confirmed the upcoming sixth season of “Empire” will be the last and have moved the series to Tuesdays this year. Here’s the full breakdown:
9-1-1: Lone Star
(Action Drama, Mid-Season)
In this 9-1-1 spinoff, a sophisticated New York cop relocates to Austin, Texas, with his son. There, he must try to balance saving those who are at their most vulnerable with solving the problems in his own life. Rob Lowe stars.
When the Los Angeles County’s Sheriff dies, an arcane rule forged back in the Wild West thrusts the most unlikely man into the job: a fifth-generation lawman, more comfortable taking down bad guys than navigating a sea of politics. He leads a skilled team of ambitious and complicated human beings who won’t rest until justice is served. Stephen Dorff, Yara Martinez, Brian Van Holt, Bex Taylor-Klaus, Mark Moses, Siena Goines and Shane Paul McGhie.
