Which TV Show Will Be Hot Hot Hot

It's happened.  The upfronts are now behind us, where the TV networks do a song and dance in front of every media agency out there, enticing them to buy buy buy on their network for the fall and spring season.  And now we know which new TV shows have been picked up!  And which ones have been put to bed forevermore.

In this blog post Hollywood Branded shares the teaser trailers for this fall's new dramas.  



New Shows & Trailers

24: Legacy (FOX) 

Chronicles an adrenaline-fueled race against the clock to stop a devastating terrorist attack on United States soil—in the same real-time format that propelled the genre-defining series 24. Six months ago in Yemen, an elite squad of U.S. Army Rangers, led by Sergeant Eric Carter, killed terrorist leader Sheik Ibrahim Bin-Khalid. In the aftermath, Bin-Khalid's followers declared a fatwah against Carter, his squad and their families, forcing them into federal witness protection. But a recent attempt on Carter's own life makes it clear to him that his team is now exposed.

It's back... the show that will never, ever go away. 



American Housewife (ABC)

A confident, unapologetic wife and mother of three raises her flawed family in the wealthy town of Westport, Connecticut, filled with “perfect” mommies and their “perfect” offspring. 

This isn't the talk of the town, but women will relate and enjoy. Especially Mike & Molly fans. 




Sky-high crime, officer-involved shootings, cover-ups and corruption: the over-extended and under-funded Chicago Police Department is spiraling out of control. Enter billionaire engineer Gideon Reeves. After his best friend is murdered in a botched attempted robbery, and the killer remains at large, Gideon demands justice. Putting up millions of dollars of his own money, he makes an unprecedented deal to take over the troubled 13th District—and reboot it as a private police force: better, faster and smarter than anything seen before. 



Conviction (ABC)

Lawyer and former First Daughter Hayes Morrison is about to accept a job offered from her sexy nemesis, NY District Attorney Wayne Wallis, to avoid jail time for cocaine possession and avoid hurting her mother’s Senate campaign. Working with his team at the new Conviction Integrity Unit will let her use her brilliant mind to turn over cases where there is credible suspicion of wrongful convic

tion, and give her a chance to turn things around with her high-powered political family. 




Designated Survivor (ABC)

Kiefer Sutherland returns to primetime in a conspiracy thriller as Tom Kirkman, a lower cabinet member who unexpectedly becomes president after a devastating attack on Washington. He will struggle to prevent the country and his own family from falling into chaos, as he is thrust into one of the most difficult presidencies in history.

Have to say... we love this one! 



The Exorcist (FOX)

A propulsive psychological thriller following two very different priests tackling one family's case of horrifying demonic possession. Father Tomas Ortega is the new face of the Catholic Church: progressive, ambitious and compassionate. He runs a small but loyal parish in the suburbs of Chicago. He has no idea that his quiet life is about to change forever. Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, Father Marcus Brennan is a modern-day Templar Knight, an orphan raised since childhood by the Vatican to wage war against its enemies. 



Feed The Beast (AMC)

Tells the story of Tommy Moran (David Schwimmer) and Dion Patras (Jim Sturgess), who are like brothers. Together, they take on the insanity of the New York restaurant world and navigate its underbelly of petty criminals, corrupt officials and violent mobsters.

This cable series slipped onto our list somehow..but we thougth we'd leave it as it has some teeth...and lots of food. 



Frequency (The CW)

Separated by twenty years, father and daughter have reunited on a frequency only they can hear, but can they rewrite the story of their lives without risking everyone they love?

This has some great twists and turns... very who-dunnit and butterfly effect.




Great Indoors, The (CBS)

Stars Joel McHale in a comedy about a renowned adventure reporter for an outdoor magazine who must adapt to the times when he becomes the desk-bound boss to a group of millennials in the digital department of the publication.

Which are cuter? Bears or millennials... watch and we know you'll say the same answer we did. 



Kevin Can Wait (CBS)

Stars Kevin James as a newly retired police officer looking forward to spending carefree, quality time with his wife and three kids, only to discover he faces tougher challenges at home than he ever did on the streets.

We kinda miss Leah Remini back from the King of Queen days... but Kevin proves he still has it, this time as a grown up family man. 



Macgyver (CBS)

A reimagining of the classic series. An action-adventure drama about 20-something Angus “Mac” MacGyver, who creates a clandestine organization within the U.S. government where he uses his extraordinary talent for unconventional problem solving and vast scientific knowledge to save lives.



Man With A Plan (CBS)

A comedy about a contractor who starts spending more time with his kids when his wife goes back to work and discovers the truth every parent eventually realizes: their little angels are maniacs. 



No Tomorrow (The CW)

Based on the International Emmy-nominated Brazilian format from Globo, a romantic comedy with the ultimate ticking clock.



Notorious (ABC)

Inspired by the true-life stories of famed criminal defense attorney Mark Geragos and cable news producer Wendy Walker. A provocative look at the interplay of criminal law and the media.    



Pitch (FOX)

The dramatic and inspirational story of a young pitcher who becomes the first woman to play Major League Baseball. 



Prison Break (FOX)

In the all-new event series, filmed on location in Morocco, clues surface that suggest a previously thought-to-be-dead Michael may be alive. Lincoln and Sara, Michael's wife until he was assumed dead, reunite to engineer the series' biggest escape ever, as three of Fox River State Penitentiary's most notorious escapees, Sucre, T-Bag and C-Note are pulled back into the action. 



Shots Fired (FOX)

When an African-American police officer kills an unarmed white college student, a small town in North Carolina is turned upside-down. Before the town has a chance to grapple with this tragedy, the neglected murder of an African-American teen is brought to light, re-opening wounds that threaten to tear the town apart.



Speechless (ABC)

Maya DiMeo is a mom on a mission who will do anything for her husband Jimmy, her kids Ray, Dylan, and JJ, her eldest son with special needs. As Maya fights injustices both real and imagined, the family works to make a new home for themselves, and searches for just the right person to give JJ his “voice.”




Star (FOX)

Featuring a soundtrack of original music and stunning music performances, follows three talented singers, desperate for a new start and with ambitions of stardom, as they navigate the cut-throat music business on their road to success. 



This is Us (NBC)

Follows a unique ensemble whose paths cross and their life stories intertwine in curious ways. We find several of them share the same birthday, and so much more than anyone would expect. From the writer and directors of Crazy, Stupid, Love. comes a smart, modern dramedy that will challenge your everyday presumptions about the people you think you know.

We DARE you to watch this trailer and not shed a tear. 



Timeless (NBC)

Thrilling action-adventure series in which a mysterious criminal steals a secret state-of-the-art time machine, intent on destroying America as we know it by changing the past. Our only hope is an unexpected team: a scientist, soldier and history professor who must use the machine's prototype to travel back in time to critical events. While they must make every effort not to affect the past themselves, they must also stay one step ahead of this dangerous fugitive. Can this handpicked team uncover the mystery behind it all and end his destruction before it's too late?

There are not one. Not two.  But THREE TV shows this fall that are about time travel. Maybe this will be the one that sticks. 



Training Day (CBS)

A crime thriller that begins 15 years after the events of the feature film, about a young, idealistic police officer who is tapped to go undercover in an elite squad of the LAPD where he partners with a veteran, morally ambiguous detective.

Books can be made into films. Why not have films made into TV shows.  With Lethal Weapon , Taken and more coming this season to the land of TV... we will be seeing how well action packed adaptations can be made.  Rush Hour didn't fair so well this last year.... it's already cancelled.
