Fox releases their Fall lineup trailers


Fox recently released the trailers for their fall lineup. After cancelling six shows this past month, with five of them being comedies, Fox has upped the dramas with five coming out fall.


Mondays at 8pm will be the new home for DC’s Gotham. It tells the life of Commissioner Gordon when he was just a detective. It was before there was Batman, Joker, Riddler, and the many other heroes and villains of Gotham City. It was just Detective Gordon (Ben McKenzie) protecting the city.


On Tuesdays and Fridays, Fox presents Utopia – a reality, social experiment that has 15 every day people build a new society. The people must work together to develop a society that they consider utopia. We know there is going to be drama because of the different types of people they recruited – a Christian, atheist, polygamist, feminist and other groups of people. We will see how this does.


On Wednesdays at 9PM will feature a show called Red Band Society. With Steven Spielberg as the executive producer and starring Academy Award winner Octavia Spencer, this dark comedy shows life for kids inside a hospital. Narrated by Charlie, a kid in a coma, we see the lives of the kids living in the hospital with their illnesses and just growing up.

Thursdays will feature the US remake of the British hit Broadchurch – Gracepoint. It’s about solving the death of a local boy in a small town. The murder hits the town hard and it’s up to the two detectives (David Tennant and Anna Gunn) to solve it.


Sunday nights will feature a new comedy joining The Simpsons, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Family Guy will be Mulaney. Starring Emmy Award-winning comedian/writer John Mulaney, it’s about a rising stand up comedian trying to take his career to the next level. It also stars SNL alum Nasim Pedrad, comedian Seaton Smith, and comedy legend Martin Short.
