The powerful play of movie-to-TV reboots goes on, and FOX may contribute another verse. Following an announcement of its 'Minority Report' sequel series, the network has next wished up an "event series" reboot of the classic Tom Hanks comedy 'Big,' as shepherded by 'Enlisted' creators Kevin Biegel and Mike Royce.
It's that time of year again, when the major networks begin picking up pilots and making final decisions on struggling series. FOX and NBC have already greenlit a number of new shows and taken others to the woodshed, but some of FOX's latest may surprise you: Seth MacFarlane's controversial 'Dads' is no more, along with the critically-adored 'Enlisted,' Rake,' and Christopher Meloni's 'Surviving Jack.'
FOX has officially joined the ranks of broadcast networks to release their fall 2013-2014 premiere schedule, leaving ABC the lone holdout. Among the bigger changes on deck for the network, 'The X-Factor' will debut over two nights with a solid four hours, while 'Bones' moves to Fridays in November, and the much buzzed-about '24' revival '24: Live Another Day' has a semi-official premiere date set for May 2014.
After announcing their fall lineup this morning, FOX has officially doled out the full trailers of its major 2013-14 offerings. Among the new showings, we have J.J. Abrams' futuristic robot cop drama 'Almost Human' looking slick, cop comedy gets the 'Parks and Rec' treatment for 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine,' Greg Kinnear's 'Rakes,' and 'Gavin & Stacey' comes to the US as 'Us & Them'! Preview FOX's fall lineup with a boatload of new trailers inside!
Earlier tonight we heard that FOX had picked up four major new dramas to series, though the network's announcements are far from over. FOX has also granted series orders to 'SNL' vet Andy Samberg's new detective comedy 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine,' under 'Parks and Recreation' showrunner Mike Schur,' along with Seth MacFarlane's 'Dads' and three others.
